"Excerpts from Below Jupiter press reviews"

Cleveland Free Times, January 15, 2008 "Too bad whoever put together the terrific soundtrack to the coming-of-age film Juno wasn't hip to Below Jupiter. Otherwise they might have chosen a track off this lo-fi effort from the group." - Jeff Niesel

Lowcut Magazine (Denmark) May 16, 2008 "Sometimes I get really surprised about new music. This record is one of those very nice surprises." - Tomsen July 2, 2008 "They're all over the road, and that's a good thing. If you're looking for something eclectic and very much unique in vibe and presentation, then you've gotta get your hands on Below Jupiter's debut disc... the (concept) story actually hangs together pretty well...the well-crafted melodic songs and dramatic elements really grab the listener...This is one of the better efforts to come out of C-Town(Cleveland) in ages...Piano-based rock, jazz, blues, folk and gospel never sounded so good. Or weird." - Peter Chakerian (Missouri) January 13th, 2009 "Below Jupiter resides somewhere in Cleveland, Ohio. I say “somewhere” because they came out of nowhere and hit me like a ton of bricks when I was visiting their fair town. Political Robots is the first track on their album entitled ‘Step Into Home (Act 1)’ and strikes me as something Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and John Lennon would create if both were commissioned to write a score for a chase scene, if only Lennon were still alive and Tweedy could play piano as well as Singer/Pianist Josh Emmet. Paired with a superb rhythm section, Below Jupiter will reinvent what you thought about energetic piano rock." - Press


Step Into Home (Act I) 2007
Step Into Home (Act II) 2009



Hi, we’re Below Jupiter and our hobby is creating songs... mostly piano tunes, but at times we dust off an acoustic guitar…. Electricity?...sure, we’re not too old fashioned to welcome its energy. Our musical philosophy is a simple one ... it's all about the song.

Our first album is a concept record …Step Into Home. It has been released in two parts, Step Into Home (Act I), December 2007, and Step Into Home (Act II), June 2009. The concept story revolves around its main character, the philosopher... the setting, America

“in a time when its Indian trails are buried under stone,

and even O’ Mic can’t call this land his home….”

While our philosopher hits on many big truths, he also possesses many human frailties such as naiveness, self-pity and boastfulness. It is not until the album’s ending title track, Step Into Home, that the philosopher receives the ultimate wisdom he’s been seeking.
