Indie Artists Nicolas and Penny Espinoza make up the duo Gypsy Vin Rose; traveling in 'Peniki' their vintage VW van to share their original songs with audiences everywhere. Dedicated to keeping it real, Gypsy Vin Rose writes, composes, and performs songs with a classical smoothness all their own; telling a story with every verse.
While their sound is hard to contain in one particular genre, they resonate comfortably with the genres of Indie Folk & Gypsy Soul, Flaminco, and Calypso Island music.
GVR most-often performs live acoustic and vocals; rarely using special effects, such as reverbing and over-dubbing. What you hear on record is what you'll hear on stage.
The name Gypsy Vin Rose evolved from their daughter's middle name and from a way of life; free spirited and non-conforming in many ways. Traveling from state to state...town to town in their 40 year-old VW Westfalia eventually labeled the duo 'Gypsies' by many who came to know them along the way.
The music of GVR tells tales of love, loss, happiness in life and faith in God, but focuses as well on their travels, and memories made out there on the road--giving in to Wanderlust.
