About the Artist
Love Gypsies consists of Walter Liskiewicz and Jimmy Shellberg . Walt has always enjoyed music and thru the years began to write his own songs and lyrics. When he retired from the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at an early age, he discovered his true passion, which was music. Walt has always been a big fan of a wide range of music. This has influenced his style as he draws from a wide range of musical ideas to create songs which are original and fresh. Walt does most of the song creation and writes all the lyrics, does the lead vocals and assists in production of the music. Jimmy owns Sonic Landscapes recording studio in Jackson, Michigan and is a multi-talented individual with regards to his musical abilities. He is outstanding on the guitar, does a great job of singing,does a touch of song writing and a great job of song production. Jimmy has always been involved in music and has performed in various bands since his late teenage years. His taste at this point in time is heavily influenced by many genres but he likes the 70's rock sound, look and feel. Walt and Jimmy have worked hard on this project to create a CD which they feel is a step up for them musically. It is truly an effort that they are proud of and would like to recognize the contributions of some very talented people. Taryn Hofert is an extremely talented young lady with an extensive musical background. She brings a new dimension to the Love Gypsies with her vocals and keyboard work. We are glad to have her in the Love Gypsy camp and she is truly one of a kind. We thank her for her contributions to our CD. We would like to thank Bennie Poole for his sax performance on Body and Soul. His talent is timeless and his performance helped to make this song world class. We would like to recognize Jimmy Judge for laying the law down on keyboards. His work on the songs Basics of Love was the final piece of the puzzle to make this song guilty as charged: so good, it would be a crime not to hear it. Finally, we would like to thank Kathy Church of Hillsdale, Michigan for her vocal performance on Voodoo Lady. She came to the studio with another member of a band she sings for locally. Her friend said she could sing so we said let's do it. And she did with great style and poise. The girl can sing. The Love Gypsies will to continue to make the music they love, love the music they make and make the music they love even better and better. Enjoy!!
