“Authentic” is the word most frequently used to describe GYPSY SOUL and their music. They are a duo, (Canadian-born singer/lyricist, Cilette Swann and British multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer, Roman Morykit), with an intimacy that comes through clearly, attracting listeners with their unique blend of Roots Rock, Pop, Blues & Jazz and a DIY back story every bit as compelling.
"A musical marriage that spans the globe, a self-invented, organic sound that has roots in rock and soul, country, folk and blues ... with vocals and lyrics intertwined like a pair of life-long partners inspiring others to follow their dreams." — Hits Daily Double Magazine, Roy Trakin
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, their music is much like fine fusion cuisine; Italian, Irish, South African and Ukrainian to be precise. As with any work of art, their music is born from heartache and struggle, love and determination brewing with many layers, textures and flavors. Their message is both universal and intimate, familiar yet otherworldly.
Their 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 in to keep the performances fresh,” states Morykit.
Enticing but never predictable, the duo mixes every influence they love, creating the familiar sound that is exclusively Gypsy Soul – Roots Rock, Pop, Blues & Jazz. Over the years they have produced 13 independent CDs and although there is always a through-line with Morykit’s rich orchestrations and Swann’s captivating lyrics and near 4-octave vocal range, you will never hear two songs alike.
