Keyboardist Vikram Shankar Joins Gravity!
Gravity is excited to announce that keyboardist Vikram Shankar has joined the band as our newest full-time member! Joe Capka, who has been with the group since 2006 and helped write and record our full length releases Into Oblivion and Midnight Sonata, will no longer be performing with us in a full-time capacity after accepting a financial analyst position outside of Cleveland. We want to wish Joe the best of luck as he takes this significant step in his career path – as a band member and close friend, it’s been an amazing experience performing with him over the past six years!
Over the past several months, we auditioned several keyboardists as possible replacements for Joe. Eventually, Vikram came to our rehearsal and greatly impressed us with his technical abilities and deep understanding of our music. After a couple “live auditions,” including opening slots for symphonic metal band Rhapsody of Fire and progressive metal legend Dream Theater, we officially welcomed him in as a full-time member! We feel that he adds a lot of new and exciting elements to Gravity and can’t wait to see what’s in store. Make sure to say hello and congratulations to Vikram at our upcoming shows!
