      It was so nice to be able to see you play. I also loved seeing what is in the songs reflected in your wonderful spirits. It is meaningful that you are on a path of light. I will probably never see you live because I'm in SF, but this was AWESOME.

Authentic Is The Word Most Often Used To Describe The Music and Fan-Funded Career Of Gypsy Soul.

Gypsy Soul are a duo with an intimacy that comes through clearly, attracting listeners with their unique blend of roots rock -meets- acoustic soul and a DIY back story every bit as compelling. It’s “music to set your heart free."

You’ve heard of crowd funding a CD… but what about an entire career? Gypsy Soul have cultivated and nurtured an audience of life-long fans; not simply via their musical excellence, but because of their dedication to all aspects of their craft. Their humble story as immigrants combined with their unwavering passion, work ethic and approachability, have garnered Gypsy Soul’s, Cilette Swann and Roman Morykit a permanent place in the hearts of their fans. The exchange that’s come from these relationships has inspired their loyal supporters to donate over $81,000 for different CD projects. In fact, the duo's entire 19-year, professional music career has been mostly funded (save a few licensing deals and number of TV/film uses) by the continued patronage of fans to over one thousand of their live shows.

Perhaps their music is best described as, “Gypsy Soul is gourmet music for music lovers,” shared on the air at K-LOS Radio in Los Angeles, California.

Like its creators, the music of Gypsy Soul is much like fine fusion cuisine…..Italian, Irish, South African and Ukrainian to be precise. And, as with any work of art, their music is born from heartache and struggle, love and determination brewing with many textures, nuance and flavors. Their message is both universal and intimate - familiar yet otherworldly.

Their roots, blues and soul sound is a true culmination of the very best of both Cilette and Roman's tastes, experiences and cultures. Morykit, Gypsy Soul’s producer shares that he feels True is their most unique CD to date as it is a combination of both a live and studio record. "We like to call it a “performance” record as we limited ourselves to one or two takes to keep the performances fresh for our listeners,” states Morykit.

British-born Morykit, is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer whose musical roots dig back to his childhood training in classical piano and guitar. In the early 90s, after several years in London as a highly sought-after studio musician, and as the bassist for emerging band Raising Cain that was released from its recording contract with A&M Records, Roman relocated to Edinburgh, Scotland to pursue new musical opportunities.

There he met Canadian-born singer/lyricist, Swann, who had also recently relocated to Edinburgh after spending time in Paris, singing in French jazz bands. The two began writing and recording together and quickly fell in love. Love lead to marriage, marriage lead to relocating to Hollywood, and while in Hollywood, Gypsy Soul was born.

GYPSY SOUL'S own GENRE: Roots Rock, Blues and Acoustic Soul

Enticing but never predictable, Gypsy Soul mixes every influence they love into their compositions, creating the familiar sound that is exclusively Gypsy Soul –Roots Rock, Pop, Blues & Soul. Over the years the duo has produced 13 CDs. Each a collection of exquisitely composed songs reflecting their lives at that particular moment in history, and each a journey evolved from and moving beyond those that came before.

Gypsy Soul have had a Top 40 hit at Adult Contemporary radio with “Silent Tears,” and have had a number of other songs in the Top 5 on many other radio charts. Throughout their professional recording and touring career, they've won numerous independent music awards along the way, including the Independent Music Awards, International Acoustic Music Awards, Just Plain Folks and honors at Lilith Fair. The duo has sold over 140,000 CDs independently and had over 1.6 million downloads and plays of their songs on various online platforms.

You may have heard their music on TV shows: Providence, Roswell, Felicity and 90210. Or, you may remember their songs from the motion picture films, Quick Sand (Michael Caine) and After Sex (Brooke Shields,) but nothing compares to experiencing Gypsy Soul's virtuosity, humor and story-telling like one of their live performances.

You can experience these consummate professionals on tour during one of their many sold-out concerts from Triple Door in Seattle to the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale, Arizona. To truly appreciate Gypsy Soul’s passionate and commanding performances, they are best enjoyed in an intimate setting with impeccable acoustics in 200 to 2000 seat theaters.

TRUE is to be officially released on Earthday, April 22, 2016. You can go to GypsySoul.com for free downloads and more.
