Julius Rodriguez, multi-talented pianist/drummer/producer, releases his debut album Let Sound Tell All via Verve Records. Stunning jazz elders and pop and indie peers alike with his technical wizardry, Yoda-like understanding of complex melody, and George Martin-inspired production feats, Rodriguez commands attention for his reverence for sound - however anyone decides to classify it.

On his debut album Let Sound Tell All, 23 year old musician Julius Rodriguez stirs a cauldron of gospel, jazz, classical, R&B, hip-hop, experimentation, production and sheer technical wizardry to create a stunning debut that commands attention. As an 11 year old kid, Rodriguez honed his jazz chops at Smalls Jazz Club, wowing audiences with his rendition of his favorite Ellington tune “Take the A Train.” Fast forward to 2018 when he dropped out of Juilliard, shimmying off the rigid curriculum to tour with A$AP Rocky. Now, in 2022, Rodriguez is on the cusp of a stellar release that weaves his life and influences - from Monk, Coltrane, Solange, James Blake, Sampha and more. This music is as much at home in Smalls Jazz Club as it is at Gov Ball.

Let Sound Tell All is a complex combination of live improvisation weaved with high-level production. A song may start out in a well-oiled, Coltrane classic quartet energy and fed through distortion pedals to culminate in an exhilarating trippy meltdown of sheer sonic genius.

Following the wave of praise from outlets that include NPR (“rising jazz phenom’), Fader (“A cosmic jazz saga”) and (“…a lively, inspired talent within the genre's conventions while also infusing his own personal musical identity…”) for his major label debut, Let Sound Tell All, Julius Rodriguez announces Let Sound Tell All (Deluxe Edition).  Set for release November 4th on Verve Records the newly sequenced 12-track deluxe album includes three new tracks, “Dora’s Lullaby,” “Chemical X” and “Starmaker.”   The 3 track singles package includes “Dora’s Lullaby, Chemical X” and “Starmaker.”
