Video Premiere: Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers, “Gravity”


Videos by American Songwriter

We’re excited to debut the brand new video for Massachusetts rockers Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers’ “Gravity,” from their critically acclaimed album Gift Horse.

“‘Gravity’ is about not being afraid of the future and embracing what is real,” says Kellogg. “Your family, your friendships, a good laugh. Like everyone, I worry about health, money, failure, you name it… and I wanted a song that would feel like a celebration of the things in life that overcome fear and worry. The stuff you’ll remember when it’s all said and done.”

Director Stephanie Keane says: “Knowing that Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers wanted an animated music video, I could not help but think of them as characters living out the song ‘Gravity.’ There is so much heart in the lyrics, I felt the band’s natural state — that backstage feel — was key to the concept. They helped by collecting personal videos that I edited to the music and then rotoscoped, letting the fantasy of animation and reality of these handpicked memories intertwine. Nearly 1,500 hand drawings went into making ‘Gravity’ come to life.”
