About the duo:

Grant, who plays guitar, bass and synth for the band started his music career 8 ½ years ago at the age of 12, sitting in his basement watching the movie Rock Prophecies. This movie was about legendary rock photographer Robert M. Knight, finding and transforming a young, unknown guitarist from a small town into a worldwide success. Inspired and motivated, Grant spent the next few years honing his guitar skills, writing music, and later learning the business side by attending college for business marketing. At age 20, Grant was invited into the Brotherhood of the Guitar, by founder Robert M. Knight, leading to endorsements with Ernie Ball Music Man and JH Audio.

While Grant was performing with another group at a local battle of the bands, he came across a mesmerizing singer by the name of Kenny Parry (vocalist, drummer and synth for Jupiter Hollow), who was almost performing as if he was possessed on stage, hitting notes that seemed impossible by any guy. Kenny Parry started music at the young age of 2 years old, setting up pots and pans like a drum set and banging away. This led to an obsession with music, and a discovery of his unique talent. In his teenage years, Kenny won himself the title “Best Drummer in Ontario” 3 years in a row. Around this time, Kenny started learning how to sing after being inspired by singers such as Maynard James Keenan, Mike Lessard, Dan Tompkins and Ian Kenny to name a few. Through years of strengthening his vocal abilities in choirs, bands and hours of dedication, Kenny has acquired an articulate vocal range, relentless endurance, and almost shocking performance through his uncontrollable stage presence.

Shortly after meeting, Grant and Kenny knew that their talents combined would create something truly unique, and Jupiter Hollow was born. Since then, the duo effortlessly created music in Kenny’s basement for months on end. The concept grew to be a two-man band, since Grant and Kenny wrote all of the music and wanted to keep it that way. The two musicians use technology to their advantage, allowing them to perform with a dominating stage presence, while captivating their audiences with their unique sonic journey.

“Jupiter Hollow warps the landscape of progressive rock for 2016. With youth on their side, Grant and Kenny venture into unknown musical realms and take the listener on the journey of a lifetime! Executed with precision, they prove rock is alive and has a place in our future, present and past. Perhaps it was always with us. Simply put Jupiter Hollow makes the world a better place.” – Pat Gillett, Down With Webster/Honors (Guitar/Vocals)

“Jupiter Hollow are starting curves in the rock space that I haven’t seen anywhere else. Dynamic, progressive compositions; with vocals that pull and soar; giving me satisfaction that is hard to come by in this space.” – Arthur Kalimidis, Landmark Showcase Festival (Founder)

“Grant MacKenzie and his band Jupiter Hollow are a hard playing impressive band that has emerged out of the Ontario music scene in the last year. I was very pleased when I could include Grant in my Ernie Ball Brotherhood of the Guitar program, and know they are now on the path to much wider discovery of their music. Grant is extremely driven and that is what it takes to make it these days!” – Robert M. Knight, Legendary Rock Photographer)

“Jupiter Hollow consists of only two guys; there’s a Grant, and there’s a Kenny. They put all of the music together themselves, and it’s pretty spectacular if you ask me!” – Noah Campbell, Rock 95.7FM (Radio Host)
