ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
COFFEE HOUSE GYPSIES: WINNERS OF NINE STATUS QuO SOUTH FLORIDA INDIE LIVE MUSIC AWARDS IN DECEMBER OF 2008!

Known for their many contributions to the South Florida Community, the CHG’s charity work includes: cancer awareness and charity concerts, including several appearances at the Love Fest Music Festival in Hollywood, Florida ~ HIV/AIDS Awareness & Research fund-raising concerts in Downtown Miami ~ performances in support of Equal Rights/Human Rights Campaigns ~ a benefit concert supporting victims of Batten Disease in direct association and collaboration with the do-gooders at DreamOneWorld.org ~ several supply & food drive performance concerts (with U of M) to raise support for our U.S. Troops stationed overseas ~ Eco-Awareness & Enviro- Conservation performances, including two "Save The Everglades" festival performances in Florida ~ a Police Benevolence Association performance ~ a Child Bereavement Center fund raiser performance ~ and several performances in support of independent music and arts, including a performance at Woodstock 2003.

The CHG’s debut studio album “The Artist” (which released online for MP3 download on Halloween 2007 and becomes available in stores and at CHG shows in hard copy Spring 2008) is a collage of folk, pop, and rock music sprinkled with spoken word poetry. It supports Miami’s indie underground by featuring cameo performances by several other SoFL independent artists.


"The Coffee House Gypsies have a sound that is refreshingly new, yet hauntingly familiar!"
(A. J. Roxx, music critic and radio personality)


"Just when you think you know where this talented band is going, they take you in a new and exciting direction... I'm sure we'll be hearing more from this talented So. FL band."
(Dan Noris, DJ for WA1A 107.1 in Melbourne, FL)


"The Coffee House Gypsies cover of Simon and Garfunkel's Sound of Silence is my favorite (cover) and probably one of the best covers ever made."
(Dirk Faes of the FMLegacy in Hoboken, Belgium)

ALBUM REVIEW BY MUSE'S MUSE 2008:



The music of the Coffee House Gypsies from the Southern tip of Florida is as magical as their name implies. The songs morph from track to track to offer something for fans of any genre or any decade. The band can sound like Retro 80's, 70's Classic Rock, or 60's Singer/Songwriter while maintaining their own individuality in each song.

The production and engineering team at Dorian's Mode Studios in Miami has incorporated a variety of instruments to showcase these songs and the talents of this fantastic band.

Standout Tracks:

The CD is introduced by spoken word from the band over saxophone and the strum of an acoustic guitar, and is one of the finest introductions to an album that I've heard. Coffee House Gypsies credit their muse and from there, show they have paid close attention to all the artists who have walked this path before them.

Imagine Stevie Nicks singing The Allman Brothers' 'Sweet Melissa' and you get the idea of 'Bittersweet', the song's third track.

Coffee House Gypsies have captured a beautiful cover of 'Sound of Silence', played acoustically with moving harmonies and worth the price of the CD alone.

But wait, there's more: The raspy 'Let's Stay' is a smooth ballad built over a marching drum beat.

'Not Even Love' sounds like it would be right at home on Carole King's "Tapestry" album, with a beautiful voice wrapped in acoustic guitar and synthesized strings.

Verdict: This album, titled "The Artist", pays tribute to music as an art and these artists have nailed down their craft to span generations of sounds. I strongly suggest this CD to any fan of James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac, or the Eagles.
