In the last year alone, Angeline recorded 2 albums and toured with the Narada Michael Walden Band, rocked the stage with Santana when he joined Narada’s band at their most recent show, joined forces with reggae and ska legend Ernest Ranglin, laid down some serious shredding bass on Gretchen Menn’s album Hale Souls (and works regularly as her touring bassist), recorded 4 instructional DVD’s for Hal Leonard as well as a demo video for GHS strings, joined the all-female Led Zeppelin tribute band Zepparella and continues to moonlight as a hired gun in the studio and for local shows.

The sophisticated sounds of Gypsy Soul
“Authentic” and “excellent” are the words most often used to describe The Gypsy Soul Experience.
Their soulful blend of Roots Rock, Blues, and Jazz is born from love, heartache, struggle, and determination and has a multi-textured yet nuanced message that is both universal and intimate, familiar yet otherworldly.
Gypsy Soul began 20 years ago 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. They call their shows, “Around The World With Gypsy Soul.”

Aided by their faithful, but endearingly overweight dog Bruno, Madame Souza sets out to rescue her grandson, Along the way, they meet a trio of aging jazz musicians, the Triplets of Belleville, who, in their own inimitable way, provide invaluable assistance in the rescue attempt.
