Gypsy is a uniquely gifted singer-songwriter and published poet. Her musical roots were deeply cultivated by her upbringing. She wrote her first song at the age of five while listening to her mother''s "jam sessions" with the likes of Tag Lambert (lead guitarist for Bob Wills) among others. Her mother was a songwriter and her uncle, Don Rollins wrote the smash hit, "The Race Is On" recorded by George Jones, Ricky Nelson and The Grateful Dead. Writing is in her blood and in her heart.
After attending University as a theatre arts and music major, Gypsy went on to study at The National Shakespeare Conservatory in New York. After living in Greenwich Village and singing at local clubs and open mics, Gypsy moved to L.A. to pursue a career in music and film, continued to write songs, record, and act in a handful of commercials and films. Eventually, Gypsy joined the pop trio, Angels of Ecstasy (with Astrid Plane of Animotion) and Kelly Sullivan. She and Kelly then went on to form Zuzu''s Petalz, performing in LA clubs before Gypsy went solo.
Gypsy''s debut album, "Heart of a Traveling Wind" is flavored with the guest performances of many talented musicians, including Ed Tree (Spencer Davis), Martyn LeNoble (Jane''s Addiction, The Cult), Tony Sales (David Bowie), Rick Shlosser (Van Morrison, Jackson Browne) and David Palmer (Rod Stewart). Gypsy''s influences include Joni, Van, Maria McKee, Jewel, Marley and others. Her songs are essentially her poems set to music with lilting, breathy and melancholy vocals amidst a folky-pop backdrop of music. She is performing throughout California, limited engagements in Arizona and Florida, festivals around the U.S., and is planning a European club tour in the Spring of 2006.
Gypsy recently played at Monterey''s Red, White & A Little Blues Festival, Mamapalooza in Berkeley, for thousands of folks on the main stage at the Whole Earth Festival, the Pine Mountain Music Festival, the Venice Carnevale and the LA Marathon for the second year in a row.
