Cilette Swann and Roman Morykit first met in Edinburgh, Scotland, some 22 years ago, “and it was musical lust at first sight,” she recalls. Vancouver, BC native Cilette, of Irish and South African descent, had been in Paris, singing in French jazz bands, while British-born Roman, with roots in the Ukraine and Italy, arrived from London, where his rock band Raising Cane had just been dropped by A&M Records after it was acquired by Polygram.
“When I first heard her sing, it was one of those ‘oh my God’ moments,” says Roman. “I was just excited to find someone that talented who could create together with me.”
Anchored by lyricist Swann’s crystal-clear and expressive vocals and composer/arranger Morykit’s multi-instrumental musical ability, with a sound that ranges from full-on Americana heartland rock to country, blues, R&B, world beat and New Age, Gypsy Soul have graduated from playing arts and wine festivals throughout the western states to headlining the prestigious 2,200-seat Britt Festival in their current home of Jacksonville in beautiful southern Oregon. They have had a Top 40 hit at AC radio in “Silent Tears,” scored a Top 10 on the International New Age and Folk charts and have won numerous independent music awards along the way, including honors at the Lilith Fair, Independent Music Awards and Just Plain Folks.
