Julian McLaren

Your Industry Insider

McLaren Artists was founded for music lovers, by a music lover. Drawing on over two decades as a professional musician, I’m your personal industry insider, offering bespoke artist sourcing and an exclusive handpicked roster of bands and musicians for your luxury event, anywhere in the world.

Finding You The Perfect Artist

The right artist, playing the right music, creates an experience that your guests will talk about for years to come. This is where I come in. Like you, I love live music too. I understand how important it is to find the kind of high quality entertainment that reflects your vision, and I’m here to take the hard work out of finding bands and musicians for your wedding or private event.

I’m Julian, and I’ve been a professional London based musician in the music industry pretty much ever since I picked up my drumsticks over 20 years ago. Music is my thing. You may have caught a glimpse of me hitting drums alongside artists such as Marianne Faithful, Mark Owen, and Peter Andre, but you were probably looking at them, not me. There’s also a good chance you’ve heard me at some point kicking out some rhythm on TV & radio shows for The BBC, Capital Radio, Radio 2, and Radio 4. It’s safe to say I’ve been busy over the years, arranging bands and musicians for literally thousands of events, both as a band leader, and professional musician in my own right. Now, armed with an unrivalled network of artists, I can source live entertainment for any size or style of event, taking place in any country around the world.

But, it’s about more than just the music. I’m passionate about making the job of looking for the perfect act for your luxury wedding or event simple, stress-free, and really exciting. Finding that raw talent that gives you goosebumps or the effortlessly cool swing band that gets everyone dancing is what I’m all about. Working closely with you, I take the time to understand your vision and style so that I can find the live music that’s going to set your event apart from the rest. Whether you fall in love with the exclusive artists in my curated roster or choose one-to-one bespoke artist sourcing, your live music entertainment is in the hands of a music expert.
