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!
