Album Notes
The Gypsy Moth women are eco-funky folk rockers, Raina Rose (the blonde) and Meredith Cushing (the brunette). The girls met at age 8 at summer camp on the Oregon Coast and have been friends ever since. At 14, they started playing and singing together, something they had both done separately for years, and a musical road trip commenced. At 21 the girls released their self-produced debut on White Rose Media, for which they have received critical acclaim. The album is the larval stage for Meredith and Raina, this first shot out the box is raw and bursting with emotion and talent, lovely, spirit lifting harmonies, and honest lyrics. A simple phrashing of just two voices and two guitars. folk music at it's best.
Check out the website to find out when the moths will be playing around the Northwest! In October of 2003 the moths were joined by Trent Hinchman the jolly funky bass player and Justin Burkhart, a maniac on the skins. The moth men and women are working steadily on their second album at Mississippi Studios ( maintaining their lyrical and vocal integrity, while metamorphosing into a moth dance machine, complete with Meredith ripping on an electric, funky solid bass lines and tight groovin drums.

downloads of LIVE ON KBOO, 4-7-04 are available on the website.

here is a review found on

The Gypsy Moths: The Gypsy Moths (White Rose Media) By: Mark A. Lawrence the IV

This wonderful self-titled first effort for this Portland Oregon based duo, whose songbird vocals float atop the base of duel guitars, shows both talent and heart. With beautiful songs like "Grey Sky" built on image inducing lyrics woven by the combination of Meredith Cushing and Raina Rose's vocals. An album you appreciate most when you can take the time to devote an attentive listen, maybe sipping the first cup of coffee on a
Sunday morning. What you find is a wonderful collection of songs including the softly spoken ingenuity of "Every Love Song" and the more rambunctious and politically conscience "The Funk." The Gypsy Moths have a sound that mixes styles like Patty Griffin, Sarah Harman, and Ani Difranco, with their strong emphasis on fleshed out song writing and beautiful, if simple, instrumental phrasing. This CD hopefully marks the first step toward a bright future for this talented musical team. A future I look forward to witnessing cause not only is there great skill and artistic vision between these two but also great opportunity for growth, providing for the greatest of possible outcomes.

Creative songwriting, amazing harmonies, masterful guitar playing!
The Gypsy Moths first CD is an infectious and addictive collection of harmonies, talented songwriting and excellent guitar playing. On your initial listen, you hear echos of Ani and the Girls, but you know immediately that this is something unique. Raina and Meredith's voices blend, complement and contrast in a hugely appealing way. I've listened to this disc many times over and never get tired of it.


This cd is a must have for any early morning espresso, afternoon drive to the coast, and wistful dusk... And any other time. Particularly touching is "Forgivness", which. Brilliant are "Money Changing Hands" and "Body Invisible". Not only have these women created an absolutely stellar first album, but they are also some of the best live performers Ptown has seen in a long time.


Solid lyrics, solid harmony, Rock Solid music
Never have I heard such crystal clarity and driven lyrics. Always uplifting, the songs and the girl's voices remind of the way the world could (or should?) be. From the near poppy Grey Sky to the gutsy dirty blues of Rustle in the Wind, the masterful harmonies and talented guitar work kick your legs dancing, with no sign of lettin up. Driving in the car or doing the dishes or making dinner, this is great music that never grows old and is always well received. I see a very bright future not far ahead.


Great CD!
I'm surprised - no one has mentioned Little White Candles - that is the track that cinched it for me - I had to own it!


Love this CD!
Love this CD. The harmonies are delightful and the lyrics are original and heartfelt. Definitely worth adding to your listening collection.


Beautiful harmonies, poetic lyrics, and awesome guitar skills
What a nice debut cd from very talented girls. I love to listen to it when i have the time to hear all the lyrics, as they mean more to me every time. Having seen them live, i know they are the real thing. the whole band sound is unbelievable~!


The Gypsy moths have a soulful sound with beautiful harmony
This album is so relaxing and it fills the room with the beautiful harmonies. The quality of this CD is very clear and well-produced. The girls are fantastic guitar players, and I like the way they alternate songs. They sound very Ani, but definitely have a distinct sound all thier own. I love to listen to them in the shower, sing along in the car, or just about anytime. Great CD +++++


I heart the Gypsy Moths
Ahhh i love this CD, i have gone to the summer camp that they talk about (camp westwind) for somthing like seven years, I met raina there and was so moved when i heard her sing 'the glace'. although she left westwind a few years ago, her music still is sung. My favorites are Fallacy, Every Love Song, The Glance, Forgivenss, but i love all of them.


Who let the Moths out?
If you seek music that will touch your soul, your quest is over because this CD is it. The music is addictive and the lyrics are potent with real-life experiences, emotions, and issues. Meredith and Raina speak eloquently to that small (or large) part of your heart that loves rainy days, needs to spend time alone sometimes, favors the funky lawn ornaments of city neighborhoods over the McMansions of the 'burbs, or wants to toss the Coors twins a beach towel. Music this good shouldn't be passed up.


ridiculously great.
Every track is so complex and soothing...gypsy moths are the truth.
