About this project

GRAVITY A : New Beginnings

Click HERE for a longer version of the video and a more in depth view at Gravity A

[All music in the video are clips of recorded music by Gravity A, some to be included on the upcoming album]

GRAVITY A has been working extremely hard in and around New Orleans for almost 8 years. In a city filled with music, we feel we provide a unique voice, blending the funky sounds of the Crescent City with modern electronic elements. The band has gone through a few line up changes in the past few years, and the current group (Mike Fou, Drew Meez, Danny Abel, Devin Kerrigan) is a force to be reckoned with.  The sound is difficult to define, but we consistently win crowds over. And we keep getting the same question: "Do you have a CD?" Short answer, yes. Long answer, yes but...not with the current line-up, and not with the current material.

That's where you come in. We have been working on our latest CD and have many elements in progress. We're doing everything in our power to keep the cost of this album down, while at the same time creating something highly produced and ground-breaking. To finish our project, we are in need of some assistance. As our work progresses, our bills add up. 

We still need to pay for mixing, mastering, guests, studio time, art work, royalties, printing, pressing, and probably some other unforeseen expenses, too. Any contribution is greatly appreciated. 

We love the Gravity A family and hope we show that with every set we play for you. Thanks for being there for us!

Extended Goals: If we can raise extra money, we have additional elements we will include.

$7,000 -  We will make a video for one of the tracks off the album in addition to the LP.

$8,000 - We will make a video for one track and we will print the album to vinyl!

$10,000 -  We'll make the video, print to vinyl, and we will make a live CD as a follow up to this one!
