Gravitation
Gravitation
Formed along the reaches of the Great Dismal Swamp, Gravitation’s sound is melodic vocals, intricate and hard-hitting guitar riffs and throbbing tempo variations with a heavy dose of today’s rock/metal grind. With a voice likened to a fallen angel, lead-singer Meghan Powell was featured in several local bands in northeastern NC in her early teens. During her high-school years she immersed herself in the local theatre and music scenes and continued her performance training at East Carolina University. With a load of natural talent, guitarist Chris Herrin began playing on a public stage when he was only fifteen years old. He was the lead guitarist for a number of local cover bands before finding his hard rock niche with Meghan and Karl. Drummer Karl Gupton, originally from Claremont, Virginia, played the Tidewater/RVA music scene for many years in bands like Last Call and J.C. Possum. Influenced by a gamut of musical genres, Gravitation formed in 2010 when the members met while working on another musical project. By a combination of hard work and extreme luck, Gravitation met legendary rock guitarist and producer John LeCompt in October 2015. In a collaborative effort with LeCompt on bass guitar, Gravitation recorded Accelerate, their first EP at Red Room Studios in April 2016. They are hitting the road November 2017 to promote the release of their debut full length album.

Accelerate EP available now anywhere digital music is sold or streamed.
Shadow Show
Shadow Show
Asheville-based indie rock band, Shadow Show, formed in a sweaty basement during February 2015. Having evolved from a two-piece guitar duo, Shadow Show has since secured a slightly-less-sweaty studio space and crafted a sound that leaves room for shoe gazing and head banging alike, often within the same song. They released their debut EP, Vendel, in September 2015, followed closely by a live EP, Live at Satellite Studios, in December. The lads of Shadow Show are taking to Asheville and surrounding cities to promote this effort and spread their music through the local rock/indie scenes, while honing in on material for their first full length album. Shadow Show is proud to play songs that are authentic and diverse, having gleaned their sound from multiple genres; they are the only area band known to sport Grateful Dead and Brand New shirts on the same stage. With catchy choruses and a song-writing process focused on melodic energy and dynamics, Shadow Show serves up a musical buffet, prone to leaving listeners hungry for more.
Go Jenny Go
