Gravitas has been garnering considerable attention due to their unique sound and their contagious live performances. Mixing blues, rock, and batshit-insanity.
Within that time Gravitas has played many popular venues such as Copperfield, and All Asia and booked future venues and events such as The Church, Hard Rock Cafe, and Guitar Con 2011.
Gravitas was originally formed as a two-piece blues progressive rock band in January of 2010 by guitarist Garrett Smith and former drummer Kevin Love. Garrett’s virtuosity in guitar playing and composition, as well as Kevin’s energetic drumming made them a hit in the New England rock and roll scene within a short amount of time. In April 2010 bassist Peter Hung and vocalist Omri Levi joined the band making Gravitas sound more refined and complete. In September 2010 Kevin was replaced with Elton Charles, one of the most sought after studio drummers / audio engineers within Berklee college of music.
With the combined benefit of these energetic and hungry performers, Gravitas has attacked the local scene with force. The bands biggest influences are Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, GNR, and Robert Johnson. Yet they blend the obvious classic rock influences into a unique style that still remains peerless in the New England Rock N’ Roll scene. The band has recently recorded a seven-song demo, which is currently being played on notable Internet radio stations such as Radio UK Intl. They are anticipating a professional EP release in foreseeable future. Gravitas is a sonic force not to be reckoned with.
