Authentic and excellence are the words most often used to describe Gypsy Soul and its music. The duo’s multicultural heritage helps inform both their message and sound, attracting audiences with their soulful blend of roots, pop, blues, and jazz. Their wistful story began in Scotland when Roman Morykit (UK) and Cilette Swann (Canada/USA) made a promise to each other to make both their living and their lives from their art.
Like its creators, Gypsy Soul’s 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, struggle, love, and determination infused with many textures, nuances, and flavors. Their message is both universal and intimate, familiar yet otherworldly.
Over their twenty-year career, Morykit and Swann have garnered a Top 40 hit (“Silent Tears”) and have won numerous songwriting and performance awards, including International Acoustic Music Awards, Independent Music Awards, and others.
Their music has also been selected as “Critic’s Choice” in over seventy magazines and newspapers and has been used in numerous hit TV shows and motion pictures. Most recently, songs from their latest album, True, are being reviewed and played throughout the United Kingdom, Ireland, and mainland Europe.
I really enjoyed Gypsy Soul’s True! They are a truly unique sound. Cilette takes ‘Hallelujah’ to a new place!
Cilette Swann’s voice is haunting and Roman Morykit’s musicianship is superb. Their music stirs the soul and moves the spirit.
A musical marriage that spans the globe, a self-invented, organic sound that has roots in rock and soul, country and folk, blues . . . with vocals and lyrics intertwined like a pair of life-long partners inspiring others to follow their dreams.
