Gypsy Jayne and The Travelers are an energizing shot of pure passion. Earthy eclecticism (think old-school country, jazz, Latin, a splash of metal, gospel, and rock, and you’re just beginning to scratch the surface) and sheer, contagious joy make every show an unforgettable experience. The unique trio from Lubbock, Texas has captivated audiences at the Cactus Theatre, The Blue Light, 4th on Broadway, First Friday Art Trail, Burk Brothers Memorial Bash, the Texas Boys Ranch Telethon, Abuelo’s, Mean Woman Grill, Skooner’s, The Spoon, and Pub50.
The group’s leader, Gypsy Jayne, is a soulful singer reminiscent of Janis Joplin. Her intense rhythmic guitar style was honed playing folk in Colorado, jazz standards in Texas, and blues in the deep south of Alabama. Along the way, she developed an honest and humorous writing style that covers everything from personal loss and social injustice to love and life as a pirate.
