Biography

Jupiterhead is a strikingly refreshing singer/songwriter who brings the public guaranteed honesty and passion. With influences of R&B, Gospel, Rock/Brit Rock, and Classical, Jupiterhead’s Pop/Rock style is laced with smooth harmonies, compelling lyrics, and a contagious sound. With the release of the ‘Who You Are’ EP approaching in Spring of 2009, it is a matter of time before the world discovers and appreciates his music. Using the piano, guitar, and pen at his fingertips, he shares the confidence of knowing his identity.

Darius Mooring earned the name Jupiterhead as a child by having a red patch of hair on his head for a birthmark. Hailing from High Point, NC, he shared the stage with strong talent such as recent recording artist Fantasia Barrino, and his brother, Quincy Mooring, drummer for rock band ‘OURS’. Now orbiting the tri-state area from Bethlehem, PA, Jupiterhead has dreams bigger than his brain can contain, and the promise of an artist with staying power. Performing acoustically, or with his band of dynamic musicians, you will experience his passion for music and watch him take his place in the universe.

Performing all original music and some covers by influential artists such as:

Radiohead, Mary J. Blige, Roberta Flack, Gnarls Barkley, Nelly Furtado, Len Cohen, Green Day, Lenny Kravitz, Marvin Gaye, Coldplay

Lyrics

Save the Day

Written By: Darius Mooring

How can you say things are okay?
When bombs are exploding everywhere, everyday?
How can you say?

How can you say things are just fine?
When innocent schoolkids are carrying nines?
How can you say?

Do you think love can save the day?
Do you think love can save us?

No on is exempt, no one is safe.
Nothing to hold on to except for your faith.
Hold on to your faith.

When you're alone or in a crowd.
When you're in silence or lost in the loud.
Hold on to your faith.

Do you think love can save the day?
Do you think love can save us from ourselves?

We destroy each other with our selfish ways.
Needless killing for senseless drilling, greedy hearts at play.

I believe love can save the day.
I believe love can save us.

Erin's Song

Written By: Darius Mooring

She stands at the bus stop with nowhere to go.
The tears sting the bruise on her face.
But she's happy she found the courage to go.
She'll be much better out of this place.

She remembers she loved him but can't remember when the love in her heart turned to fear.
It was the love for her own life that got her standing here.
And sometimes that's just the way it is.

Sometimes that's just the way it is.
You win some, you lose some, you get some, you give.
Life's only worth living if you want to live.
And sometimes that's just the way it is.

A home with no father is how he was raised.
No man to show him right from wrong.
That's why when he hits her it feels so okay.
He didn't know one day she'd be gone.
He didn't know one day....

...she'd open her eyes and she'd realize she's worth more than she was told.
She'd pick up her pride, dry her weeping eyes, and she'd walk out the door.

She would walk out the door.

Sometimes that's just the way it is.
You win some, you lose some, you get some, you give.
Life's only worth living if you want to live.
And sometimes that's just the way it is.

Who You Are

Written By: Darius Mooring

Can anybody find me?

Wake up in the morning, everything is normal and mundane.
Have a cup of coffee, eggs cooked over easy.
Nothing's changed.

You're not where you thought you would be righ now.
You ask yourself repeatedly...

Living, loving breathing, but what is the real reason for my life?

Jump into the shower a quarter past the hour.
You're running late.
Iron you blue dress shirt to hurry off and go work a job you hate.

The cycle seems to never end for you.
You're spinning don't know what to do.

Living, loving breathing, but what is the real reason for my life?

It's time to find out who you are.

I know you've heard it said that good things come to those who wait.
But time waits for no one.
So how much of it will you waste?

It's time to find out who you are.

And when it's all said and done you don't have a clue.
But you know there's so much more than what life is handing you.

You're trying to find out....

Who you are

Requiem

Written By: Darius Mooring

There's a light in the dark house I have left burning for you.
So that you'll find your way home and I will be waiting for you.

I leave it on for you.

I stare at the doorway hoping that you will walk through.
And I've been here for days denying what I know is true.

So I leave it on for you.
For you....

I leave it on for you.
I'll carry on for you.
I will be strong for you.
For you...
