Their unique sound blurs the lines between the melodic sensibilities of bands such as U2 and Coldplay, with the gritty, energetic feel of rockers the likes of Bryan Adams or Bon Jovi, just to mention a few.

Free From Gravity embody the dream-like, space-ridden atmosphere the band name implies with their beautiful, direct and catchy song writing. The band affectionately named their own approach to music as kick assed chilled out rock , and indeed their music is soft rock with attitude, bridging the gaps between modern melodic influences and the huge 80s arena rock acts. This is a band to experience, whether the sound is coming from your headphones, or even better from within the settings of a live venue.

In March 2017 we met a guy sitting outside in the rain & he asked for some change. We said no but would buy a Tea, Coffee or Something? we sat down, and he told us his story. He'd had an argument with his girlfriend and came back to his stuff on the street. He didn t know anyone so ended up sleeping rough. We got to know him. He told us the hardest thing was being ignored and because we'd given him time it had changed his day. Since then we have known a number of homeless people and they all have similar stories, it really is a case of There but for the grace of God go I .

The song and project Tea, Coffee or Something is aimed at raising money to get homeless people off the street and into secure accommodation one by one. The project provides funding to help with rent or a guarantor on private or council accommodation. We have had a hand in getting two homeless people off the street who have gone to work and get their own accommodation.
