GYPSY STAR BIO:
The original music of Gypsy Star artfully fuses indie folk rock with sounds and rhythms
from around the world. Imagine if Fleetwood Mac, Blackmore’s Night, Loreena
McKennitt and the Gipsy Kings got together to form a new band… throw in a bit of jazz
and classical music and it might sound very much like Gypsy Star.
Gypsy Star’s songs feature classical flamenco guitar, an array of hand percussion, a
tight rhythm section of bass and drums, sultry vocals and harmonies. The band often
features additional performers on violin, accordion, cello or woodwinds.
The mystique behind this dynamic band are songs that lie at the creative hand of guitarist and composer Billy Keen who merges his own musical roots in American rock, folk and
blues with a more global influence tapping into Spanish, Celtic, Latin, Mediterranean
and Caribbean flavors. Long time bandmate, vocalist and percussionist Belinda
Brodsky, breathes poetry into Keen’s tunes with lyrics that capture the essence of
ancient tales, the insight of modern storytelling and the charm of timeless, heartfelt
sentiments. Together they weave a colorful, melodic tapestry of enchanting, uplifting
Spirited folkloric dancer, Kimara Lee, complements the band’s music through the art of
The band has recorded and released 3 albums…the self-titled debut album Gypsy Star in
2007; Once In A Dream 2012; Under The Moonlit Night in 2017 and a holiday music
single… The Tale Of The Mistletoe in 2015.
They have performed live on radio and television in concert throughout Florida and the
Eastern United States with exciting shows that are a cultural feast for the eyes and ears!
