A night of Jamming with Let Gravity Band

Let Gravity band members: Alden Acosta, Ram Chaves, Rigil Borromeo and Donne Santos

Not a lot of people know I’m a huge music fan. So when I was asked if I’d like to attend the launch of an OPM all-male band called Let Gravity, I immediately agreed. Let Gravity is composed of five men whose lives were connected with one another in one way or another. Most of them were members of different bands but perhaps they were really destined to form their own band because things just fell into their right places. Hence, that’s how Let Gravity came into existence. 

Let Gravity band is composed of Sam Santos, Donne Santos, Rigil Borromeo, Alden Acosta and Ram Chaves. Guitarist Sam Santos is a professional songwriter who composed the teleserye theme song “Alipin,” as well as a host of other telenovela themesongs. Meanwhile, his brother Donne Santos was the founding member of the indie-band called ‘Goodbye Tracy’ and is a former member of a band called Sutil. Acoustic and electric fingerstyle guitarist Rigil Borromeo is a music teacher by profession, Alden Acosta was a former member of a band called “Happydaysahead” and the more popular group “CallaLily.” Lead vocalist Ram Chaves, who was the last one to join the group also used to have his own band named after him and was formerly a runner up in the GMA 7 Pinoy Idol Season 1 competition.

They have just launched their very first album called “Let Gravity Defy” under Star Music which also features the carrier single "Defy." The said single charted on OPM and Monster Radio RX 93.1 and reached the TOP 10 charts for several weeks. Meanwhile, their song "With A Kiss" as well as its music video has been getting a lot of raves and positive reviews and it has been featured on MYX and Net 25. 

Come July, watch out for more from the Let Gravity band as their only Tagalog song on their debut album, "Alamat" which incidentally will be the theme song of the historical film and biopic Hermano Puli directed by veteran film maker Gil Portes featuring actor Aljur Abrenica under T-Rex Entertainment which is slated to be out commercially by the month of September.

I personally liked the haunting lyrics of Let Gravity's song, "With A Kiss," because it's a melancholic song for the hopeless romantic. I'm sure a lot of people can easily relate to it and will definitely enjoy listening to it. It's now on MYX, so fans can help out by voting for the said song.
