Searching for a musical soul mate, Swann traveled to Europe chasing her Celtic roots. After a few years singing in French jazz clubs, her quest took her to Scotland where she met world-class musician and producer, Morykit. The duo has since recorded ten CDs over a decade. Through their relentless touring and unforgettable performances, these esteemed performers have sold over 110,000 CDs in the U.S. alone without label support. Their music has aired in numerous countries and over 120 times in films and TV shows including Providence, Felicity, Roswell, After Sex, Quicksand and others. Like an exquisite dessert, Gypsy Soul's eclectic sound and acoustic excellence is a rich, multi-layered experience that has been described by KLOS RADIO as "Gourmet Music."
