The Birth of Gravity
During 1998 in the East Village of New York City, Brad was recording at Loho Studio with his band Sacred Mars. With only four songs recorded, the bass player announced he was moving to Wisconsin and the drummer decided to go on tour with a Japanese punk rock band.
With all the band members peacing out, less than three days left in the studio, and fourteen more songs to record, Brad trekked to Ludlow Guitars. He bought some drumsticks and bass strings and finished the record on his own.
Joe Hogan, Loho Studio's engineer said, "I love the music. I'll join the band." Joe invited his friend A.J. to NYC bar Coney Island High for a Gravity gig. A.J. wanted in. Seventeen drummers later (Spinal Tap!!!), Gravity found Michael, and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Forces of Gravity
The band's inspiration and soul. He has written hundreds of songs and is the center of Gravity. He remains true to his artistic beliefs and his bandmates.
The foundation of Gravity. He is always focused on arrangements and live presentation. A.J.'s grounding bass riffs keep Gravity from lifting off the earth. He is an accomplished producer, the co-owner of Threshold Studios and records many of New York City's finest bands.
He screams on guitar, highlighting every break and accenting the band's powerful, high-energy rock sound. Joe is a recording engineer at Loho Studios where he recently engineered The Blue Man Group record. Other recordings include Guided by Voices; The Breeders; Toilet Boys; Ronnie Spector with Patti Smith; Ryan Adams; D-Generation; Yo La Tengo; Misfits.
Michael plays the skins with power and passion and is the glue that holds Gravity together. For the past three years he has been steadily playing live shows with The Good Rats as well as doing studio session work. He answered an ad in The Village Voice for gravity -after listening to the music- he was committed.
The Sound of Gravity
A mix of 80s punk rock, Marshall Stacks and thunderous electric guitars, Gravity's music exudes an inescapeable and powerful vibe. From the first note, Gravity pulls every listener in--
into the lyrics... into the beats... into the show... into the moment.
... Feel the Pull
Gravity is Brad, AJ, Joe & Mikey
