Gypsy Soul

A Journey of Soulful Grooves, Hypnotic Melodies... Alternating between haunting melodies and atmospheric soulful grooves, Gypsy Soul creates a lush, unforgettable musical landscape. Cilette Swann's exquisitely powerful vocals lead, while partner Roman Morykit balances the bands 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 ten CDs to his credit, handles all the production for Gypsy Soul. Their extraordinary music has been likened to artists from Sarah McLachlan & Loreena McKennitt to Chris Isaak & The Cowboy Junkies.

The two met in Scotland and have traveled the world together bringing to their music the influences of many cultures. Gypsy Soul's inspiration also stems from their diverse roots: Roman is British, of Italian and Ukranian decent, while Canadian-born Cilette's heritage is Irish and South African. Their music reflects this diversity and is as much World/Folk/Rock as it is Celtic/Americana.

Their three independent CDs, Test of Time, Sanctuary and their holiday release, Sacred have garnered enormous critical acclaim and radio support. Their songs have been heard on over 700 radio stations nationwide and abroad charting at #36 on the Gavin AC Chart with "Silent Tears". Gypsy Soul has received press in most of the entertainment trades including: Billboard, Album Network, R & R, Raygun Publications huH and Bikini, Hollywood Reporter, Dirty Linen and Performing Songwriter among others. Sanctuary is also an enhanced CD and features a MTV quality video along with interviews, live footage and photo gallery.

Gypsy Soul has just completed their fourth CD, entitled Superstition Highway, which is scheduled for an international release in the Spring of 2000. To date their CD sales have reached approximately 31,000.

The band's songs have aired on numerous film and television shows on all the major U.S. Networks. These include the season finale of the hit NBC show, Providence, an ABC movie of the week entitled, Purple Haze, CBS' The Young and The Restless, and The Melissa Etheridge hosted show, Beyond Chance among others. The song "Talk To Me' is also featured on the upcoming Brooke Shields feature film entitled, After Sex.

In the performance arena, the group has toured nationally and internationally at hundreds of festivals, colleges and respected night clubs including: The Troubadour, Luna Park, The Coach House and Key Club among others. Gypsy Soul has also opened for many award winning artists including: Grammy winners Larry Klein and Toni Childs, Los Lobos, Beth Neilsen-Chapman and Martin Page to name a few.

With the advent of MP3.com, Gypsy Soul is making great in-roads on the web. Six of their songs have been featured in numerous categories. Their music has charted at #29 in overall MP3 downloads. They have consistently been in the top 10 in the following categories: Folk-Rock, Folk, Seasonal/Holiday and Jazz vocals. Most recently the A&R staff at MP3 has chosen "Silent Tears" as song of the day in January 2000.

The group also runs their own independent label, Off The Beaten Track Recordings. The label is home to three other artists they have produced. Now with the recent consulting agreement and association with The WorldSound Corporation, Off The Beaten Track Recordings is able to provide its artists with licensing, distribution and promotion in both the national and international arenas.
