Bio

Bearded Gypsy Band

‘Leaving Town’ – EP

“The Bearded Gypsy Band were pretty bloody quick to command the room...a really impossible-to-top, five-star performance” - Matt Lee (Metro 2013 with The Cat Empire)

After returning from a successful Canadian Tour, The Bearded Gypsy Band are set to release their début EP ‘Leaving Town’. This EP puts the band in exciting new territory. Vocal harmonies are accompanied by energetic bluegrass licks and lush drum sounds. Something unlike anything you have heard before.

“The musicianship is outstanding, the writing is mature and the performances are sublime. Do yourselves a favour, go to a show and get a CD in your hand or jump onto the Internet and purchase it on iTunes. It’s six tracks of joy on a compact disc. It’ll make you happy… and that in itself is a precious commodity.” – Max Savage (Max Savage and the False Idols)

Love the instrumentation at the start and end of this. Something isn't quite right for me about the vocal melody in this one, but overall it's still very enjoyable listening.

Fun track, great to hear you adding vocals and the singing is great! I would normally be put off by the country feel but it really suits this song. I do miss the eclectic Celtic and other ethnic influences though.

Fun track with super skilled playing. Perhaps a little busy, but I think it would grow on me. Would make a great tune to dance around with friends to at an outdoor party of some kind.
