“Heart of a Traveling Wind” – Music is no stranger to a fairy princess like singer, songwriter and published
poet, Gypsy. A songwriter since the tender age of five, Gypsy grew up from a musical family with a country crooning mother
and an uncle who wrote music that was later recorded by the Grateful Dead. Gypsy, who is now performing solo after a couple
of group performances, has recently released her debut album, “Heart of a Traveling Wind”. A diverse, satisfying
blend of her picturesque poetic songs with stunningly gorgeous voice tops off this dynamic showcase of poems transformed into
music. Sure to receive a nod of approval from legendary great Van Morrison for her cover of “Into the Mystic”,
Gypsy covers the classic song with a voice of an angel, she nails it so perfectly, no other female musician could quite top
it like she did. Expect this kind of result from the rest of the CD. It’s a mentally stirring sandstorm of remarkable
poetry mixed in with striking songwriting, sure to evoke strong feelings of wanderlust, love and hope. Stamped this CD with
an “A +” rating, “Heart of a Traveling Wind” is pure, 100% amazing by a truly, gifted artist.

Touching & well-written songs
performed with childlike charm.
Material: Gypsy is modern folk-rock in the same vein as acts like
Jewel and Loreena McKennitt. "Yours" is an acoustic love song with a country feel. "Into the Mystic" is a Van
Morriston cover that gives Olivia's excellent backup vocals a chance to shine. The best song Gypsy offers comes last.
On the aptly titled "Simple Country Song," the ensemble took their skills to another level playing it.
Starting with a soft rock ballad, the band displays fine form. Bass, drum and guitar are all competent.
Their heart and intent were more than present.
Summary: Gypsy has a certain childlike
charm that is simply alluring. She is a pleasure to listen to. Her songs are touching and well written.
