Finding Jupiter started in 2009 when Sarah and Dean met in a blues band as undergrads at Stanford. They realized they both wanted to rock harder, so Finding Jupiter was born. From the beginning, Finding Jupiter merged straight-ahead rock with a healthy dose of '90s alternative and the occasional fierce guitar solo.
With Peter on bass and Luke on drums, Finding Jupiter recorded and released a full-length LP, "Racing Against the Sun," and Brad crafted a companion remix album, "East of Orion." The band's first single, "Raze the City," won Best Pop Song in MTV's Ourstage competition in January 2011, and "Racing Against the Sun" notched a perfect 10 out of 10 review in the Stanford Daily. When Luke graduated, Taylor took his place on drums, and the band released a follow-up EP, "Io."
Finding Jupiter played at the biggest parties on campus and in venues throughout the Bay Area before the band members graduated and went their separate ways.
