Jupiter In Velvet drops new CD
Band/Artist: Jupiter in Velvet
Album: Screaming the Love Behind the Stars
Final Rating: 5/5
Jupiter in Velvet is a Singer/Songwriter who is based in Canada but originally hails from London. “Screaming the Love Behind the Stars” is his latest release and the result though far from a self-indulgent ego trip, rather a moving and elegiac artistic statement from start to finish. This is not your overly predictable Ramon Noodle Pop Rock band, no Jupiter in Velvet goes much deeper than that. In-fact Jupiter in velvet could even be classed as a 4 genera artist: Alternative Rock, Pop, vintage Punk and even Classic Rock. Jupiter in Velvet has way too much precision and clarity to live in the shadows of overly-predictable Pop Rock. Indeed this is clearly evident in songs like “Love is on my Side”, “Just One Day” and “Monkey See, Monkey Do” which methodically ups the ante to a very respectable level of catchy musical expression and craftsmanship that transcends typical pigeonholing. The music is also commercially viable with a fresh sound and an entertaining vocal vibe that makes a real connection with the listener. All pieces within this album hold the attentions span of the listener perfectly. In a nutshell this is Squeeze meets The Rolling Stones. The 10 song line-up comes fully loaded and appeals to many listeners with a wide variety of musical styles.

Conclusion: I would imagine in time we will hear more from this amazing artist. This latest CD has everything the tile implies and more. No doubt Jupiter in Velvet has carved a marketable niche for himself thus far setting himself up for more marketable success down the road – locally and beyond. I would not be surprised to hear his music featured either in a major Motion Picture, on a popular TV Series or even on Prime Time Radio. But for now I can honestly say this is one English artist that clearly gives you a musical snapshot that is highly original, uplifting and dare I say brilliantly stylish in scope.
