humans of mac+mae: Jupiter Project

This photo is one of the first photos of us jamming in our early days as Jupiter Project – as you can see, it’s no frills, bedroom musician stuff. Just having fun and making music for the love of it.

We didn’t have the most expensive gear or equipment but the music we made in that basic bedroom studio turned out to touch so many different people around the world. This photo allows us to look back at the time and gives us great perspective. We always worked hard and tried our best but at the core of it all was just a pure and simple love for music. To this day, we still make sure that is the reason why we do what we do.

To be able to share our art with with the world is something that we are truly grateful for. We’ve met so many beautiful people from all walks of life and had some crazy adventures along the way. It’s literally changed our lives. But we’ll never forget where we came from!
