September - 2010. The concept was merely that, just a concept, not yet a reality, but soon to become one. The initial idea was based around a metal-core sound; harmonized guitar riffs, clean vocal choruses, and of course mixing in some breakdowns. During the winter of 2011/2012 the band began playing live and recorded their debut release. Over the next year and a half live shows were the primary focus of the group which proved to pay off as the band found themselves quite busy and also were presented with a lot of opportunities to provide local support for national touring acts at some of the area’s largest venues.
After laying the foundation and building a solid fan base, the time had come where a new recording was in order. As material was being compiled for this recording tension began to grow and creative differences started to become apparent. These were trying times and caused the band to take a brief hiatus and ultimately led to losing a member and the band continuing on as a 4 piece.
Here and Now:
Annabel Lee is moving forward and feel that they are stronger than ever. There’s a whole new level of drive and determination with the group and a very bright future ahead of them.

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 “pissed-off 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.

Hello, my name is Andrew Bryant, I've been producing for about 9 years. I originally started playing piano and slowly shifted my passion towards electronic music (still play the shit outta the piano)
I was born in Rome Italy youngest of six older siblings. I traveled all around southern Europe and eventually finding my way to Russia not far from 8 years old. There I learned to play the piano and have been playing since with a great passion.
I got into electronic music at the age of 14, compiling loops I found in Garage Band. Then was able to hook up my keyboard and start recording my own compositions and fell in love with the electronic music world. I then started to produce music with FLstudio making electronic instrumentals and drum & bass.
As my skills evolved I was able to start producing bedroom psytrance with big influences of Infected Mushroom and Astrix. When I moved to Argentina at 16 I continued my passion with my set of headphones for the next 2 years producing many tracks and even "albums" that I later organized. Always showing friends and family for feedback. The scene at the time was very big on Minimal-techno and slowly was able to appreciate it. There was a skatepark that I escaped to that converted into a very shanty club after the day. There I started to DJ and as well as produce (at home) more and more minimal techno with always my own spin for complex rhythms and textures.
I now reside in Reno after returning from 4 years in Argentina and graduating from a Music & Art highschool named Centro Polivalente de Arte. I continue my production with the dream of once getting discovered for my talents in Piano and Music Production.
