Miss Jupiter – “Sunshine/It’s All In You”
A Spill Exclusive Canadian Music Premiere
Chicago-born/LA-based multimedia artist-musician Michelle Rose aka Miss Jupiter stands out as a beacon of consciousness among the Los Angeles music scene. Taking in a rare performance earns you a front seat to a multifaceted DIY experience courtesy of her arresting stage presence and self-made costumes. Jupiter is an outspoken front-woman, with self-as-art visuals and musical aesthetics that bring to mind The Man Who Sold The World-era Bowie, with traces of transcendental rock à la The Entrance Band and the riotous shimmers of Karen O/Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The debut single “Sunshine/It’s All In You” is the uplifting first release from a concept LP slated for September 2016 on Miss Jupiter’s own label.
The story of Miss Jupiter begins a very long time ago and very far away, in some senses at least… for in all likelihood this story is not at all unique and is probably happening constantly everywhere at a fairly consistent pace…
It was amid a particularly nasty nebula of wastefulness and cruelty, that a tiny new star painstakingly escaped and made its way out into a clearing in space. After about 3 billion years of shaking off the cosmic debris, sighing over its inability to save the small family of stars it had loved so dearly, and searching for a new home, this teensy spark of light found its way into our galaxy, and pinned itself in the sky just far enough to barely glimpse with the average mammalian eye. As the star peacefully watched over all the other solar systems, it began to witness the descent into darkness of one of the most graceful, balanced & beautiful planets, Earth, which began to remind it of the nebula it had once escaped. Being a dwarf star, in fact not much larger than our sun, this little ball of gas decided it could help this time.
The star’s energy embodied a human Earthling, and asserted that the best way to initiate the force of positive change would be through music, for it is vibration that unites all life through shared sensation. It gave its host the gifts of song, word, and magic, and the stage name of Miss Jupiter to express the concept of massive power despite diminutive size or circumstances.
Miss Jupiter’s gravitational pull has engaged Earth-based musicians Rachel Fannan (Only You, Bomb), Angelica Tavella (TV Heads, Nyx), Quincy Larsen (Future Shoxxx), and Andrew Vega (Sisters Ov The Blackmoon) to contribute their talents to her mission.
Host person for Miss Jupiter, Michelle Rose is also the proprietor of a Los Angeles boutique, Spacedust, which serves as retail home to artists and creators of all kinds. Michelle also provides custom printed t-shirts and pinback buttons to the local music community through her business Naked Merch, and is the chief stage costumer for Miss Jupiter and bands such as Deap Vally & Fever the Ghost.
