Mystikjipsy is a singer/songwriter/actress/dancer born on May 20, of musical background and Native American, African American, Irish and French heritage in Hartford, Ct. One of the main qualities she finds in her vocal and instrumental presentation is the ability to be widely diverse, by incorporating spirituality, love, femininity and other-worldly scenarios.
Mystikjipsy is enthusiastic and open to new possibilities musically and has an upbeat attitude and down to earth mindset for the people she comes in contact with personally and professionally. She is one who believes we just have to step through the glass of illusion and believe and know that we can achieve heights we never dreamed we could accomplish. This is where she is within herself and this is what she wants to show the world through her music.
Mystikjipsy is working on new music to be released very soon. Visit her blog at http://www.notyouraveragejipsy.blogspot.com, as well as her Soundcloud page at http://www.soundcloud.com/mystikjipsy. There are also free downloads available on Soundcloud.
Let me start by saying that seeing all of you beautiful and extremely talented people on Broadjam and other places in the music industry makes me proud to call myself a musician! Your presence alone makes my musical existence possible. I feel honered. Thank you.
My birth name is Cher, thanks to my mom and aunt. I love my name and wouldn?t change it, thanks mom! :) As for my name here on Broadjam and as a stage name..I just love the name Mystikjipsy for numerous reasons. One because Mystik just seems to have a presence that speaks to me on many spiritual levels. Then, the other, Jipsy because in my younger years we moved around A LOT and even lived in a van for a while?so Gypsy just seemed befitting. I just changed up the spelling a bit. I just recently within the last 2 years really honed down on the music thing and started getting things straight in my life with where I want to go with this. I?ve been writing songs since about 13 years old and playing keyboard since before that. All the songs that you hear on my site I?ve recorded myself. I only used a Yamaha PSR-290 keyboard and a Roland BR1200 Digital home studio. I did all the vocals and all the backgrounds. I?ve never used a home studio before so I am pretty impressed with myself. (smile) I am still learning a lot about it. I only bought the studio about 8 or 9 months ago.
I really believe that anything is possible in life if you really believe it. We just have to step through the glass of illusion and believe and know that we can achieve heights we never dreamed we could accomplish. This is where I am within myself and this is what I want to show the world.
