The Moon Gypsies are a four-piece Americana, Roots-Rock, & Folk-Pop group from Madison, WI (USA). At the core of the band is lead singer/ songwriter/ guitarist, Robert J. Conaway, who was awarded 1st Place in the 1999 Billboard Songwriting Contest for his tune, "A Million Miles Away".
Other members also contribute strong songwriting and vocals as well. Multi-instrumentalist, Chris Wagoner (vocals, electric & acoustic violins, mandolins, lapsteel, accordion, and guitar), recently had his song, "Other People Say", included on MTV's Tom Green's new video release "Uncensored". Mary Gaines (vocals, bass, cello), along with Wagoner, has also done extensive studio session work on major and indie-label releases such as: U2 ("Dirty Day" remix, produced by Butch Vig of Garbage), Smashing Pumpkin's "Gish", EMF ("It's You", another Butch Vig remix), Freedy Johnston's "This Perfect World" (as well as Freedy's most recent, as yet, unreleased recording), and Willy Porter's "Falling Forward" (produced by Neil Dorfman).
"This self-titled debut is filled with groove oriented genre bending bluesy tunes. It's a fine recording of eclectic electric-tinged originals."
Fireworks Magazine (UK)--Nicky Baldrian
"I found myself getting into almost every song. The way the band blends their influences astounds me. Their style ranges from sexy jazzy rock and blues to folk. Their musicianship is of a very high standard and their songs flow with elegance, character, and passion."
Rootstown Music (Belgium)--TRANSLATION
"The strength of this CD is the fact that all four bandmembers share vocal parts and they all do it for the sake of the song: you won't find any one of them that tries to be the star of the song..."Other People Say", with it's "Mustang Sally" beat, is a pretty good example-- the soulful approach that rules the song all the way, makes it quite irresistible. You start humming along and by the end of the day, the melody is still there--no way to get it out of your brain. The super-soft "Orion" has Mary Gaines singing above a beautiful background of mandolin licks, while "The Reggae Zone" brings everything the title suggests. This is, in my opinion, a song with alot of radio-potential. "Devil Sittin' In My Chair" is another Mary Gaines-written-and-sung numbers, and, as far as I'm concerned, the best on of the whole disc ("Franny's Got a Cadillac" being a very solid second...) with it's soul-blues style, it's funny "non-lyrics", and it's unbelievably beautiful lapsteel solo by Chris Wagoner. "Rockin' the Full House", a Robert J. song, is almost as irresistible: pure and plain rock 'n roll, right from the shop where John Mellencamp used to sell his music. "A Million Miles Away", a delicious slow blues with a more-than-fine organ part by Mark Davini, and Wagoner shining on fiddle, shows Mary Gaines in Bonnie Raitt style. The strongest thing is--she does it and she does it so well, she never gets lost. The CD contains one cover song: Stephen Stills' "Bluebird" gets a nice, long version, with crying Dylanesque guitars and a fiddle part that could have been played by the great Dave Swarbrick. I reckon that "Moon Gypsies" is the band's preference song. It made me think of an uptempo Daniel Lanois, because of the simply brilliant accordeon/lapsteel arrangement. This is just a brilliant song and it makes it quite easy for a reviewer. This whole CD is fine, well-arranged, with lots of varied styles, and bringing you some of the best soul, blues, rock, and pop you ever heard on one disc. We don't need much more to call this a very good disc. I think you should do yoursleves a favour and try to get a copy of this beauty: it's more than just worth the effort."
