Uniquely soothing and emotive, soul, RnB and Gospel inspired singer-songwriter Sully Gravity has been writing songs since he was 12. He balances his studies at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance with teaching and performing in choirs.
Born in Spain to Nigerian parents, Sully’s musical education was a wide-range one. He studied classical music in the conservatoire while gaining deeper knowledge in gospel and performance every Saturday in church. He grew up listening to everything from classic soul (Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin & Donny Hathaway) to Nigerian Pop/Afrobeat (Fela, King Sunny Ade & Lágbájá) through RnB/Gospel artists such as Whitney Houston, Kirk Franklin and Emeli Sandé.
His debut single Lessons was defined by Jiji M Ugboma as "a song that takes you back to a place of conscious listening and awakens a deep appreciation of the art of music. It has an effortless but intentional rhythm with lyrics that reflect the deep authenticity and passion of Sully” and has achieved a considerable amount of media coverage from radios and blogs.
He’s recently released his second single, Worn Out, which “toes the line between pop and the decadence of a perfect love indie-ballad. The empathetic offering, shows one way to look introspectively, warmly, and decisively.” according to comeherefloyd. It’s also been chosen as track of the week in Torrent FM, spanish local radio.
Having played at several venues all over London (Hard Rock Café, Birthdays and Under the Bridge), he’s currently working on his debut EP, epokhe, to be released 2019’s fall.
