The Boston Pop/Rock Showcase: Me Vs Gravity / Melanie Lynx / Mike Squillante
In the short time it's been together, Me vs Gravity has been blowing up the Boston scene with its epic pop/rock style. In 2011, the band released a self-produced, self-titled, seven-song EP along with a music video for the EP's lead single, "Walls." That music video can be found on the band's YouTube channel, along with covers, acoustic videos—gathering nearly 500,000 views. 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 merges the pop songwriting of Katy Perry with the live show energy of Dave Grohl. After performing more than 350 shows as the lead singer of New England's premier wedding band, as well as performances at the Apollo Theater, Carnegie Hall, and making it onto Season 10 of American Idol, Lynx guarantees to entertain, from the moment she walks on stage to when you're humming her hooks on your car ride home.
Mike Squillante has performed one-on-one for Grammy-winning artist John Mayer after being selected by Berklee College of Music (his alma mater) songwriting staff. He has played alongside the hit pop band Hot Chelle Rae at the Warped Tour 2010. At 22, Squillante performs regularly around major hot spot venues throughout New York, including the Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery, Sullivan Hall, the National Underground, Dominion, and Crash Mansion.
