We had the good fortune of connecting with Julian Scherle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Julian, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Music has been an integral part of my life since I was a kid, so it wasn’t really a choice to pursue a career in music. It was more like figuring out a lifestyle around the passion.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
From an early age on, music was and still is a source of emotional balance and a fountain of happiness for me. I started with classical music education already in preschool (thanks to my parents) and founded my first band (punk-rock of course) when my hands were capable of playing power chords on a guitar. Fast forward and 30 years later, I’m now working as a film composer. It would be a blatant lie to say the journey has been an easy one – earning a living with your passion is difficult, especially in the beginning. As a film composer, you’re experiencing lots of rejection, so it’s also crucial to develop a big skin and not have external factors influence your passion.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’d send my friends off into the beautiful nature of SoCal. Not the biggest fan of city (and the wall of noise). I would send them into the Angeles National Forest, Joshua Tree and up the coast.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shoutout is going to my wife Spenser Scherle (working under her maiden name Spenser Reich), who is a picture editor.
