LA Gypsy - due 11/1/11



L.A. Gypsy is a ragtag band of musicians who have returned to the melodic rock of their roots to shape the sound of their debut album.

Songwriters Mike Salvatore and Matt Nowicki met riding the train in high school and later were members of a rock band called the Sun City Diplomats. These days Mike lives in L.A., playing music along the Santa Monica coast. Matt currently finds his inspiration in the backstreets of Brooklyn, infusing it with a bluegrass sensibility acquired after spending a few formative years in Atlanta.

Not too long ago, Mike and Matt had a chance to play with saxophonist Todd Gaynor. When Mike and Matt first heard Todd's solo material they asked him to collaborate on a new project with them. A year later, the three began working on a collection of songs that would become L.A. Gypsy.

Todd introduced the N.Y. Rhythm Section--bassist Ben Kogan and drummer Danny Wolf. Danny & Ben met at U. Miami where they played in various groups together and later reconnected to co-found the NY Rhythm Section, a collective of musicians based in Danny's Brooklyn studio.

Last winter, the boys spent two weeks recording in a basement in Huntington, N.Y. The result is a sound that swirls classic Americana imagery and pop production through the electronic prism of a troubled modern time.
