As we say goodbye to 2009, we remember some fairly amazing things that happened for us. It's been a busy year for Gravity Tree, and we hope it was a good year for all of you.
Way back in February we released a 3-song EP (for free! Drop us a note if you've been a fan and didn't get it);
In the spring and over the summer we hit some big numbers on the music sites, including one million plays on the Progressive chart at NumberOneMusic; and were making some good progress again at last, on writing and recording for the new album.
In September, we released a brand new song, "Building", as a web-only download (you have your copy, right?). Among other things, it hit #1 in its genre on RadioIndy, and #6 on the NumberOneMusic.com progressive chart. Yeah, we were surprised too - should we be worried?
At the end of November, we released a newly remastered version of our song "Wait" appearing on Melodic Revolution Records' new holiday compilation disc, "A Very Progressive Christmas: Vol. I". ("A Very Progressive Christmas" was the fifth compilation disc we've been a part of over the last seven years.) As of this writing, it is still in the Top 5 selling albums at the Mindawn music site. We were honored to be included, and hope you've had a chance to check out the sonically superior new version of the song. If not, it's still available for download here:
The end of the year finds us at work on more new songs. With all of this going on (plus trying to catch a little sleep once in a while, teach a guitar lesson, or write some new music for someone else), we've learned our lesson about guessing when music gets done; and will let you know as soon as we have a firm release date.
Which brings us to the end our quick look back at 2009. Now we can look forward to giving you some bold new progressive music to match what we hope will be an exciting new year.
BTW, if you're really interested in we do, join the street team and help us tell everyone about this crazy music. (In return, you'll get free stuff.)
