Music: Mad at Gravity

Standard

Band Picture CD CoverMad at Gravity, albeit a very short-lived band, are worth recommending because they are genuinely and simply amazing. They were an active band from 2000, when they formed in Southern California, until their split in 2003. The band was made up of J.Lynn Johnston on vocals, James Lee Barlow on guitar, keyboard and backing vocals, Anthony Boscarini on guitar, piano and keyboards, Ben Froehlich on bass and finally, Jake Fowler on drums.

The band only managed to release one album, Resonance, under ARTISTdirect records. The album peaked at number 41 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Check out the band’s Wikipedia page to find out more.

What makes their music so beautiful is the clever combination of the instruments in complimenting J.Lynn’s beautiful voice. It is for this reason I think their music became so popular at the time and why I love it now but I do have to admit that, in my opinion, if it wasn’t for J.Lynn’s unique and powerful voice, the band would be another struggling rock band.

The band split up, according to their Wikipedia page, because J.Lynn left and the others failed to find a suitable replacement. Since then J.Lynn has continued his musical career but recently his music has become a hobby rather than his career although he still has a strong passion for it. J.Lynn has two YouTube channels which he occasionally updates, a channel for music and a channel for vlogs, it is from these that I first learnt about the band Mad at Gravity and it is the reason why I bought the band’s CD (which still available on Amazon).

These are some examples of Mad at Gravity’s music. The last video in these examples is one of J.Lynn’s solo tracks to show you all, my faithful followers, the absolute magic that his voice is…
