Biography

July 15, 2008- Nashville, TN –Formed in the shadows of Nashville’s diverse musical terrain The Rust’s, vocalist/guitarist Nick James, keys Chris Scott, bassist/vocalist Greg McCool, guitarist Justin Davenport, and drummer Tom DuPree III surface with edge and energy that combines the city’s broad musical elements into a fresh package of hard-hitting rock-ballads with a face-melting melodic hard rock sound.

The band changed its name to Throwing Gravity in 2010.


The sonic spirit of the bands varied influences come to fruition on their 2008 debut album, Anticipation, released November 15th, 2008. Produced by Jon King (Augustana, Alabaster Box, The October…), Anticipation captures the tightly charged and potent rock of The Foo Fighters and the sensible melodies of Tonic to form a brooding, heart pounding album of shout out loud pop rock songs.

What is now ‘The Rust’ really began with just Nick James Newhouse and his obsessive, uncontrollable habit of writing face-melting melodic hard rock. Enamored as a youngster by hard rock and alternative bands like Metallica and Chevelle, Nick began crafting hard-hitting songs, working it all up in bedroom-demo fashion. As he grew in his craft, he began melding these sonic qualities with song-smithing sensibilities gleaned from progenitors like Fuel, Foo Fighters and Default.
