Album Notes
Replete with dynamic drum instrumentals, their signature all-original gypsy/celtic/cabaret songs and a sprinkling of french vocals as well as English, the CD is an exciting and spirited blend of songs perfectly mirroring The Gypsy Nomads' live show. The duo’s high octane energy is captured in this fun and lively CD.

The Gypsy Nomads, now known as Frenchy and the Punk*, seamlessly combine raucous live guitar looping, cheeky ballads sung in English and French, danceable, modernized old-world inspired melodies and thunderous tribal-march-style drum instrumentals. Get transported to a world full of humor, theatricality, whirling dance and bohemian spirit. Experience their genre-busting non-traditional take on world cabaret with a vaudevillian and steampunk flavor rooted in folk, punk and the vineyards of southern France.

French-born Brit. lead vocalist and percussionist, Samantha Stephenson and American-born punk veteran guitarist Scott, make up this spirited duo. The two powerhouses don't disappoint as they unleash the raw passion of their love for music, dance, and a roaring good time.

Touring incessantly coast to coast since 2005 and racking up over 150 shows a year and four full-length albums and a live DVD, they bring their pulse-poundin' tribute to the free spirit lifestyle to alternative music festivals and steampunk/sci-fi/cabaret conventions across the U.S.

*About Frenchy and the Punk:
Imagine Django Reinhardt, the White Stripes, Johnny Ramone, Siouxsie Sioux and Edith Piaf jamming together at an event hosted by Deepak Chopra. This is what it might sound like. A sultry French-born singer, percussionist and a fiery punk rock guitarist from the golden days of the hardcore scene formed Frenchy and the Punk in 2005. The unlikely pairing has since released 6 full-length CDs, produced a live concert DVD and have performed all across the U.S. and in Europe. In May 2012, Yahoo Music called them one of the top 25 duos in the US. Their show is a carnival of two that will take you from Paris to CBGBs and back again. A rollicking flapper folkpunk cabaret with cleverly crafted songs, Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro pounding drum instrumentals and true DIY attitude.

Percussive duets and whimsical instrumentals contrast with tunes in French and E
"At the Carnival Eclectique" gives the listener a broader view of what Helland and Stephenson are capable of.
Percussive duets and whimsical instrumentals contrast with tunes in French and English..."Ian McTroll" is just plain fun, with guitar lines that hark back to Helland's solo work, particularly 2006's "Catapult". The lilting "Spellbound Chariots" would fit in perfectly at a renaissance fair; and the charming "Oh Gypsy" contains a lyrical surprise! Summerland closes the album with celtic yearning.
