Every band has a beginning. Gypsy Stone, is one of trial, tribulation, and corrective actions. Our first gig took place in a small town outside of Cincinnati Ohio. A woman took the stage when the world told her it would never happen. But with a supportive husband standing behind her on the bass, the story had only just begun. The guitar starts, the hit of a kick drum, the lights shine, and then you hear it.
It was a voice that leads to Nashville. The idea for the band started on that stage, and so began the search for the right talent, personality, and sound.
Different names, different sounds and the names multiplied inside the basement rehearsal space. All with their own reasons for being here, money, a chance for stardom, etc. The right talent took over 60 months of trial and error to find the members to deliver the promise that is Gypsy Stone today, a party band with attitude.
The band debuted at a church festival in July, 2008 and Peter gave the band the name, "Gypsy Stone" And you ask for the meaning to the name? A mix of music covering country and rock-n-roll. Over the next few years, the band played their own versions of cover songs around the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. Playing covers is fun, but not enough.
In the spring of 2012, they started working with an Indie label in Nashville, TN. “Prophesy" was our first collaboration.
With this task accomplished, a bigger dream was born. In the fall of 2012, song ideas were pitched, 10 songs were chosen to fit their style to perfection.
Studio 19 in Nashville, TN, was where their new dream began of an original collaboration, and that's where “Brownsville” was born.
The future lies in front of us!
Gypsy Stone was quickly recognized around the Cincinnati area, featured in “Cincy Vibe” April 2009 “Jammin with Gypsy Stone” and in April 2010 “Gypsy’s just wanna have fun”. On July 13, 2012 Gypsy Stone was Cincinnati's Local 12 News, Band of the Week!!
In July 2012 Gypsy Stone and Visionway Records Nashville joined teams and started work on Gypsy Stone's debut CD "Prophesy" now available at shows. A new album, "Brownsville", is still under production and the first video for the title song is under construction.
