As the name implies, their style is nomadic and even a bit spooky.

Gypsy Ghosts EP
Bird Language EP
Mad Men Only LP
In one epic year of writing and rehearsing, the Gypsy Ghosts accomplished a lot. After releasing their first EP in the fall of 2012, they won $4000 from 98.1 Free FM to record their next EP, Bird Language, and were nominated for a London Music Award. Since then, they have gone on to play numerous shows across Ontario and release their debut full-length album, Mad Men Only.
