High Gravity
High Gravity
Joe Martin Music

I wrote this song back in 2018 with Ben (Jonesy) Jones, while in Nashville. The night prior to the songwriting session with Jonesy, I was in a bar downtown and ordered a (FatBottom) beer. It was a good looking beer but came in a schooner (2/3) sized glass. So my first question was ‘does this come in pints..?’. The reply from the bar maid in her smooth southern accent came back; ‘no way, that’s a high gravity beer…!' I’d never heard the term ‘high gravity’, but have later learned it’s an Americanism and just means a high alcohol content ABV 6%. After a few more scoops of the high gravity I woke up the next morning with a rough head, struggling to get out of bed thinking... 'this high gravity is holding me down...' And ping. The lightbulb lit up! I took the idea to Jonesy, he loved it and a few of hours (and strong coffees) later in the writing room of Fort Houston, the song was born! I was keen to have the song sold to an upcoming country star on the Nashville circuit, but it turns out, it’s hard to flog a song in music city, they already have a lot to chose from… So, fast forward four plus years and I’ve finally got around to recording it myself. It’s a fun number to play live and brings back some good memories. The talent of photographer Jonathan Davies brought my quirky artwork idea to life (with a lot of fishing wire and photoshop). I hope you enjoy listening to High Gravity as much as I enjoyed writing and recording it. Share it with your friends and family, kick back and put it on repeat... a good companion with a high gravity beer!

Really nice surprise at how accomplished you are. I was expecting a much less. Good song and killer production. Music DEFINITELY needs a streaming sats platform.

Listened to this song multiple times now. It is definitely your most radio friendly song. reminds me of the Rembrandts and Joe 90 style indie pop rock from the 90s. Small suggestion, lose the thats and the now that in the chorus. all the best.
