Host of Delicious Destinations
Posted on February 14, 2015
The Host of Delicious Destinations is Gypsy Racco, a singer-songwriter who creates a unique sound of folk, pop and rock stemming from her rich musical upbringing of Americana roots music. Growing up in a musical family, Gypsy wrote her first song at the age of five after hearing many of her Mum and Dad's living room "jam sessions" with the likes of Tag Lambert (lead guitarist for Bob Wills), and others. She was inspired to pursue the life of a musical artist after hearing her Mum's recordings on the local country stations in Arizona. Also, Gypsy's uncle, Don Rollins wrote the smash hit, "The Race Is On" recorded by George Jones, Ricky Nelson and The Grateful Dead. Writing is in her blood and deep in her heart.
After attending ASU majoring in theatre & music, Gypsy was accepted into The National Shakespeare Conservatory in New York. She then moved to Greenwich Village and began singing at local clubs and open mics, then moved to L.A. to pursue a career in music and film. She continued to write and record songs for a brief time in the pop trio, Angels of Ecstasy with Kelly Sullivan and Astrid Plane (formerly of Animotion), and then the pop duo, Zuzu's Petalz. Shortly thereafter, Gypsy went solo. Over the next ten years, she recorded two albums, "Heart of a Traveling Wind" and "Theres Still Hope" (with over 20,000 downloads on itunes and flavored with the guest performances of many talented musicians, including Ed Tree [Spencer Davis], Martyn LeNoble [Jane's Addiction], Tony Sales [David Bowie], Rick Shlosser [Van Morrison] and David Palmer [Rod Stewart]. She is currently recording her 3rd album entitled "Mystikal Kiss".
Gypsy has shifted her main focus to sharing her love of travel, incorporating her intuitive cooking style, sensitive palate and restless spirit to create a travel show that explores the sweet pleasures in life without having to spend a fortune.
