ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Music of Gypsy Soul is a "Conversation With God".
- Neale Donald Walsch, New York Times Best selling author.

Reviews of Silent Night from Scared: "I loved this song as a child, but as I grow older it's one of those songs I dread hearing again as the Christmas season draws near. It has been done to death, and it's greatest weakness is how slow and soft the song is. Monotonous and sleep-inducing... until now. Gypsy Soul takes this timeless classic and turns it's weakness into a powerful strength. With vocals by Cilete Swann that rival Enya's most hypnotic work, and expertly woven classic guitar which could make the hair on the back of one's neck feel a brush of angel's wings. They've breathed life back into an old standard. A must listen for this season."

BIOGRAPHY:

Gypsy Soul create an unforgettable musical landscape that is as rootsy as it is atmospheric and haunting. Cilette Swann's exquisitely powerful vocals lead, while partner Roman Morykit balances the band's ethereal
edge with inspired bass and guitar counterpoint. Cilette writes lyrical tales with impassioned insight and Roman creates the evocative musical tapestry, which the two effortlessly marry. Roman, an experienced producer with fourteen CDs to his credit, handles all of the production and most of the instrumentation for Gypsy Soul's CDs.

Their extraordinary music and unique sound has been likened to artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Eva Cassidy, Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Allison Kraus, Shawn Colvin and Loreena McKennitt for its depth and beauty.

The two met in Scotland and have traveled the world together for 13 years. Between the two of them, the duo has lived in five different countries, thus, bringing to their music, the influences of many cultures. Gypsy Soul's inspiration also stems from their diverse family roots: Roman is British, of Italian and Ukrainian decent, while Canadian-born
Cilette's heritage is Irish and South African. Their eclectic "Triple A" sound reflects this diversity and is categorized as "World/Acoustic-Rock" as often as it is called "Celtic/Americana".

Of their eight critically acclaimed CDs, Gypsy Soul have sold over 75,000 CDs independently without distribution. Through the band's relentless touring they have garnered enormous regional support through fans, media and radio. Their songs have been heard on over 900 radio stations nationwide and abroad.
