Zach Adam and Adam Joseph, the two Adams collab to create a powerful song about depression in their new single "Gravity" right off of Zach's new LGBTQ Label, Magic Town Media. This is definitely a timely subject given the sudden and tragic deaths of two powerhouses, Fashion Icon, Kate Spade and Celebrity Chef and Beloved Television Personality, Anthony Bourdain who both allegedly committed suicide.
“Originally, we had the idea to do a song about love being a force of nature but a new, deeper, meaning and feeling began to develop as we started laying down vocals in the studio.” “Suddenly, our love and break up song revealed a layer that might raise awareness and give comfort to those who need it most,” says Adam Joseph. Written by the powerhouse duo and produced by Zach, “Gravity” is a soaring pop track about yearning to overcome addiction and depression. It features Adam Joseph’s soulful tenor vocals over lush synths, sweeping choruses and intense percussion.
Zach Adam and Adam Joseph have had experience with depression and suicide, both personally and through people they loved. Says Zach, “We’re artists. We feel things deeply and have had to go through the motions. I’m hoping this song and its music video spark a conversation about suicide and help to bring it out of the dark because change will only happen when the stigma loses its power.”
In addition to the radio version, Magic Town Media is releasing a remix package for “Gravity” featuring dance versions of the song by DJ Pacifico, GSP, Max Grandon, Melodika, Angelino Loren, Pumpkin Spice, Thiago and Adam Joseph.
The accompanying music video was directed by Zach Adam and shot in New York. Adam Joseph flew in from Los Angeles and he and Zach shot it in two days. “I will never forget how unhappy I was putting my face on that Brooklyn sidewalk,” Joseph admits. “Just imagining how many dirty shoes and dogs that cement had seen before me was very unsettling but I sucked it up and did what I had to do.”
“It was just one more thing that proved this multi talented guy can do it all,” laughs Zach. “Adam’s voice and energy shine brilliantly in ‘Gravity’ and I’m happy we did this together.”
