Jupiter In Velvet – ‘What Will Be Will Be’
Weaving a diverse and intricate tapestry of musical exploration that compliments modern musicianship with a thick, 80s-pop influence, US and UK-based electro-rock musician JUPITER IN VELVET has returned with a brand new single release!
Caught somewhere between the realms of Electro-Dance, Psychedelic and New Wave rock, the self-prescribed ‘musical alchemist’ cites an impressive range of artistic inspiration, from Little Richard and The White Stripes to The Rolling Stones, Black Keys and Prince.
Combining the foot-tapping instrumental qualities of Tears for Fears with the emotive vocal prowess of David Bowie, Jupiter In Velvet’s ‘What Will Be Will Be’ marks the first single release in a short series that will unfold over the coming weeks and months, and is available to stream on Spotify now. The track features on the artist’s latest EP release of the same name, which dropped recently and is available to purchase on Amazon.
Intent on pouring personal experience and subsequent newfound wisdoms into his music, Jupiter In Velvet’s ‘What Will Be Will Be’ tugs on the strings of the well-known phrase in a way that is both relatable and potent.
“Many a soul has found themselves after an arduous journey in life, not where they had hoped to be”, muses the artist on the lyrical journey of his latest single. “Faced with the choice to abandon a ship that appears so off course, or to forge ahead into unknown waters, where does one draw the strength, conviction and determination to push forward into the darkness?”
Jupiter responds to his rhetorical conundrum with his own solution. “Love. That’s the answer. From love, and loving, we find faith to journey into the unknown and accept that ‘What Will Be Will Be’.”
Jupiter In Velvet’s latest EP ‘What Will Be Will Be’ is available to stream and download now via Spotify and Amazon. Jupiter In Velvet will release further singles in the coming weeks, and you can discover more about the artist via his official website.
ABOUT JUPITER IN VELVET
A musician nearly all of his life, Jupiter learnt to play the drums aged 9, and began playing gigs with his first band at just 10 years old. In his teens, he taught himself to play guitar, keyboard and singing, and began his songwriting development. His professional music career slowed down as attended college.
During his first semester working on his PhD in finance, Jupiter stumbled into a chance trip to South Africa where he had an epiphany; Life was too short to place money in front of happiness and to not go after one’s dreams. Upon his return, Jupiter quit school and moved to LA, where he went on to play and tour for many years with a string of bands as lead guitarist and singer, including Big Mic & the Metallic Marauders, Zuzu’s Petals, Woolton Parrish and 2MorroW EvR AfteR.
Jupiter moved to the UK in 2011 to remake himself and to merge his vast musical influences and interests to create something new, compelling and uplifting. And thus, Jupiter In Velvet was born, releasing his debut album, ‘Screaming The Love Behind The Scars’ (2012) to much critical acclaim.
