Today is June 11. Our album launch party was on April 11. Apparently, it took us two months to get this first video from the event ready--that should tell you that Social Gravy is all about perfection, no matter how long it takes!
In the next few weeks we are to going post more videos of our love show at the Behind Every Yes launch party. Thank you to Nick Maybury on guitar, David Goodstein on drums, Dave Yaden on keyboard, to the amazing back vocals singers Sharlotte Gibson and Carol McArthur for sharing the stage with us that night!
Thank you to Daniel Lir of DolceFilms who made this video. Thank you to No Name who hosted our opening night (though no photo policy was a bummer ;) Thank you to the Social Gravy's friend Carshenah Jefferson who helped us distribute the download cards. Thank you to all of our fans, and friends, and friends of friends who came out to support us and hear our music live. Thank you to all of you who couldn't be there but kept asking about the videos from the event--here you are now. And thank you to those of you who listened, gave feedback and shared our songs. More to come--stay tuned!

Stone Cold took us a long time to write, with many structural and lyrical revisions. The whole process took probably several months off and on. Tweaking with the lyrics went on through the actual recording at the East West Studios.
The song’s structure is unusual: it has a very slow opening supported by Hammond and ambient noises only, all the way through the second verse where drums kick in, and full force only in the second chorus.
This song is about a personal journey. A journey of someone who is not quite sure where and how to find the support to go forward. There are existential thoughts. You know, like the feeling you sometimes have that the ground beneath you starts to give way, and you don't know if you'll be able to push on. I think this song evokes the feelings of angst, anxiety--but resolving into a stronger you. There’s introspection, triumph, healing, partnership, peace, gratitude, and rebirth. ~ Vee Bordukov, co-writer/ co-producer
"In Stone Cold, we wanted a kind of indie, lonely, thoughtful and somewhat troubled sound. We think we got it. The vocal is quite distorted and when the track drops it's quite intense."
