Me vs Gravity

In the short time they've been together, Me vs Gravity has been blowing up the Boston scene with their epic pop/rock style. Since their first show a year ago, Me vs Gravity released a self-produced, self-titled seven-song EP along with a music video for the EP's lead single, "Walls," which now has more than 200,000 views on YouTube. With a strong online presence, a bombastic live show, and a drive like no other, Me vs Gravity is a force to be reckoned with.

Melanie Lynx discovered she had a talent for singing at an early age and began her musical journey, succeeding at competitions both locally and nationally. Some noteworthy accomplishments include her participation in Hollywood Week on Fox's American Idol season 10, performing at the Apollo Theater and Carnegie Hall in New York, and performing in more than 350 shows with one of New England's top cover bands. Lynx is currently developing her original music with producers Chris Leon and Jay Weiss, as well as producing YouTube covers.

When asked how to describe her sound, 18-year-old Carly Tefft responds with, “There’s a lot of rock and roll influence from the Police, mixed with some funky alternative roots from Sheryl Crow and Jason Mraz, blended with the lighter sounds of Sara Bareilles and Colbie Caillat.” The Cape Cod singer-songwriter strives to be “creative without being cliché." With one year at Berklee College of Music under her belt, Tefft has hit the ground running, releasing her first independent studio EP, Loud and Clear. Kathleen Szmit of The Barnstable Patriot describes it as “an album that could easily hold its own against the likes of Gwen Stefani, Hayley Willians, Sara Bareilles, and, yes, Taylor Swift."
