Jupiter Vinyl

 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

The blend of Ed's unique upbeat island guitar rhythms and Corinne's strong harmonic voice could be described as a meeting between Jack Johnson and Karen Carpenter. The trio's modern spin on retro sounding harmonies is hard to classify, but it would fit in well with Indie Folk Pop.

Biography

Corinne Bohjanen, Ed Horey, and Jen Webster create a beautiful tapestry of folk-pop harmonies. Their music is original, creative, and hard to classify. They are a versatile trio, having covered hundreds of stylistically different songs including Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire”, Modern English’s “I Melt with you” and Radiohead’s “Airbag.” In early 2012 Corinne and Ed decided to collaborate on an album of original songs, the result of which is their debut LP, “Lazy Ash Tree". That album was released by Paint Can Records (formerly Liquid Evergreen Productions) in December of 2012. "Lazy Ash Tree" embraces the simple and upbeat style of Alt Indie Folk. Jupiter Vinyl's mellow back porch style, intimate and engaging live performances, and inventive song writing and vocal harmonies set Jupiter Vinyl apart as a new up and comer in the Pittsburgh music scene and beyond.

Corinne and Ed began performing together as Jupiter Vinyl in August 2010. Their music is reminiscent of a modern day Johnny Cash and June Carter. Their new and interesting style grew out of their very different backgrounds.

Ed hails from just south of Pittsburgh, PA, a city that is experiencing an exciting renaissance of music and art. He has studied guitar and piano for over 33 years. Ed runs Paint Can Records an independent record label that’s been producing music since 2002. He’s released several albums ranging from solo classical guitar to indie rock and teaches private guitar and piano lessons. He brings simple, reserved, yet highly sophisticated guitar work to the table.

Corinne, on the other hand, is from the small rural town of Marquette, MI, where she camped, hiked, fished and enjoyed an active lifestyle in the wilderness of the Upper Peninsula. She grew up singing in school musicals, competing in state honors choir competitions and was a member of the University of Michigan Glee Club. Her musical style was also influenced by the summers she spent singing around campfires along the beautiful pristine shores of Lake Superior. Her gifts lie in playing the bass, mandolin, and writing and singing unique harmonies.

In 2012 Jen Webster began performing with Corinne and Ed. The addition of Jen's vocal harmonies and rhythms round out Jupiter Vinyl's upbeat indie folk sound. Jen hails from just north of Pittsburgh. She has studied drums, bass, guitar, and vocals for 23 years. She grew up in a house that was always full of music that formed the basis of her musical influences. She enjoyed singing along to folk tunes with her mom.

Lyrics

Plastic Hero

Written By: Corinne Bohjanen

Those days waiting for an action figure
A plastic hero battling with a spaceship in the sky
He wasn’t real yet he wasn’t imagined
He was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing he was there was something

Every day waiting for an actor
A made up character acting in a show about nothing
She wasn’t real yet she wasn’t imagined
She was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing she was there was something

They took a nonsense world and made it right
Built a real life out of nothing
Turned an imaginary room into their own house of truth

He was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing he was there was something
She was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing she was there was something
They were nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing they were there was something real

WABASH
Lyrics by Corinne Bohjanen

Let’s go out and play tonight
Heading north over the Fort Pitt bridge
Cutting through the city to the south side of town
Set this place to music and make it our own

We all have a story to tell
Pouring our hearts out into our songs
Sharing our music and the night
We all can sing along
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la

It’s been a good long night
Toting our guitars to the open mic
Twenty good musicians and some bottles of beer
The night is over and we can’t stay here

Time to take the road back out
Leaving the city and heading south
Through the Wabash tunnel and heading home
We set the south side to music and made it our own

Magic Soap

Written By: Corinne Bohjanen

I know I can’t read it in my horoscope
Or in the shower on the magic soap
Even the fortune in my take out dish
Won’t tell me how to handle this

Why does the whole world think it could tell us what to do

They tell us that our dreams won’t pay the rent
Life can’t be lived in a circus tent
We need to buckle down and do it their way
Everyone has too much to say

I don’t want to hear (I can’t hear)
All your bad advice
I know I can’t read it in my horoscope
Or in the shower on the magic soap
Even the fortune in my take out dish
Won’t tell me how to handle this

Picnic

Written By: Corinne Bohjanen

City of glass and steel silver rivers down below
On this hilltop above the haze
Is where we have to go
Leaves of many colors provide the cover for the ground
These trees above the city stand so still and make no sound
They tell not of our presence they stand tall over our love
As we watch the real world passing time down below
From our hiding place above

The late sun warms the hillside
And showers everything in light
The warm sun is our blanket
And protection as we hide out in plain site

Below the bridges close the gap
With steel arms extended they pull us toward a time
When all these moments have ended
Hide out hide out in plain site
Though now we come bearing quiet love
It can’t be swept aside no no no
Someday we'll walk the streets down below
With nothing left to hide
