Truth is, I can tell you honestly, that with some artists the host and his editor work hard to make sure that our guest is comfortable and we end up with a listenable interview. It’s our job. But I should also, in the interest of full disclosure, tell you that there are those artists that sitting down and having a cup of coffee in our studios is immediately like visiting with an old friend.
Gypsy Jayne has that quality. Although we had talked on the phone briefly, when we met and shook hands, it was our first face-to-face meeting. By the time we sat comfortably and did our interview, and then walked out back and sat under some trees and visited for a while longer, I told her that today I felt like I had made a new friend. She is the type of person that puts on very little if any airs, and you never would guess that she is a well-received singer and songwriter here in West Texas.
But as I continue to tell the truth, I will tell you that when she steps up on stage with her three piece band and begins to sing a form of what I call “Texas Soul Music”, she becomes not only a powerful singer but a remarkable musician with her guitar. Her most current album was actually done a couple of years ago with some great tunes. It has a hidden gem in the very last cut. We play that cut on our Podcast, and we think it reveals a lot about the real Gypsy Jayne.
Our special guest Gypsy Jayne, occurs in Episode 28 of the Free Range Texan Podcast and is revealed Thursday, September 12th at sundown. We enjoyed our time spent with Gypsy Jayne, and believe our listeners will as well. Gypsy Jayne’s music is available in the Free Range Texan House of Treasurers and she gives a website for her booking information in our interview. Thank you Gypsy Jayne … we definitely want you to come back.
