Description: Canadian Roots Rock

Press Release:
SALTWATER GYPSY

The release of their debut CD titled “Fifth” has long been anticipated by fans from all over. On this CD lead single “Everything Heals” is about an abused child at the hands of his father. Its lyrical content is powerful sung with conviction and emotion. This song has an abundance of melodic sections, with multiple guitars in sync, in the zone and in the moment. One unique aspect is that Kevin’s 14 year old daughter lends her vocal talent to some of the groups songs. Audience reviews indicate that this song is by far the best they’ve heard from this group. They have received some great reviews, one of which was from Artie Kornfeld, a co-creator of Woodstock. This “Fifth” has been released in its digital format and is available at most iStores. At this time Saltwater Gypsy play small acoustic showcases but are ready to move to a larger scale if the need arises. Putting together a complete band to answer the challenge of working a larger arena has been always a goal in their minds.
 
Saltwater Gypsy is currently working with A & R Select in West Hollywood, Ca. for licensing, publishing, a record deal and/or placement opportunities.

Biography:
SALTWATER GYPSY

Saltwater Gypsy is a Canadian roots rock brand of music based in Calgary, Alberta. Saltwater Gypsy has been making emotionally authentic music since 2008. Founded by musician/songwriter Kevin Schmitke (with help from long time friend and student Justin Spearing, who may also be considered a co-founder). Kevin now serves as SWG's principal songwriter, singer and performer, the music genre is a combination of hard rock and blues, with elements of a classic country aesthetic. The recordings are the product of a dedicated and multi-talented singer-songwriter, and so the music is defined by a headstrong and independent spirit, hearkening back to the Southern rock'n'roll of the '50s.

While Saltwater Gypsy has been in recorded existence for a short time only, the music is a product of Kevin's twenty-five year history of songwriting, performing and recording. Kevin's storied history of growing up on a gypsy homestead with no running water in Manitoba, on his own by the age of 17 and heading to Hollywood at 19 to pursue a prestigious musical education, all reflect in the music produced by Saltwater Gypsy.

Saltwater Gypsy released it's first EP, entitled "Fifth", in 2010. These early recordings marked the brand's first attempt to release a series of songs with strong conceptual connections and a narrative arc. The album's standout track, “Everything Heals,” is an unsettling but ultimately redemptive meditation on abuse. The rest of the tracks on the album wrestle with similar themes of hardship and loss, co-mingled with a genuine hope for healing. Whether in the tremulous plucking of a guitar string or Kevin's growling, tortured, hard-living voice, the emotional tone and narrative authenticity of their songs always ring true.

Kevin and his brand "Saltwater Gypsy" stand apart from his peers even further, as the capability of recording, producing and mixing the music is always available. Kevin is a graduate of both the American Audio Institute’s "Recording Engineer" program and the Musician’s Institute’s "GIT" program, and after recording the first SWG EP "Fifth", in very humble beginnings, Kevin set about and constructed an impressive recording and production studio. Now formally known as "SWG Sound", this studio comes complete with a long list of premium instruments and session players waiting for their cameo call. Kevin is now moving forward with SWG, focusing on recording the ideas inspired by a 25 year history of playing/performing and a lifetime love of music and recording.
