Above Gravity is an all-girl 4-piece rock band from Chapel Hill NC who channel No Doubt, Paramore and All American Rejects. The 2010 winners of the Cat’s Cradle Orange County High School Battle of the Bands, these four young women have been entertaining audiences with their infectious stage energy and dynamic musicianship for more than 5 years. Friends since elementary school, the band’s line up features a rhythm section of twins, Jewell and Katie Brey, Sarah Howard and Shannon Elliott. Even more impressive than their average age of 16 is their multi-instrumental talent. All sing, all play guitar, all write songs together.
The Band is just releasing their full-length debut recording, Falling Skies, and has shared the stage with Kimya Dawson (of Juno fame) and Punk-Folk locals, Midtown Dickens. Above Gravity will be volunteering for the triangle’s non-profit Girls Rock NC summer rock camp and performing their fourth year at the Carrboro Music Festival.
