Gypsy Soul Records was founded in Toronto in 2009 by Renan Yildizdogan to develop the careers of cadre of like-minded artists. The early roster was made up of mainly roots rock and Americana artists. In 2013, Gypsy Soul Records was launched and Stone River’s debut album “Valley of the Butterflies” was the first to be released internationally on the label. Since then the label has been involved in the release of over forty albums, eight of which have been released on the Gypsy Soul imprint with our distribution partner Warner Music, FUGA and Proper Music UK.
Over the years Gypsy Soul has grown into a full service artist collective. Being on both the business and artistic sides of the music industry provides us with a unique perspective, which helps us keep our ears close to the ground anchored by an in-depth knowledge of the current landscape. We love what we do…believe in working hard… and following both our instincts and our hearts.
In 2017, It was apparent that the label needed access to an in-house recording facility and someone to collaborate with who had a solid background in record production and state of the art faculties. Gypsy Soul Records expanded with its partnership with Ross Hayes Citrullo which fit the Gypsy Soul model like a glove. This partnership fulfills our mandate of being a true “full service” label – able to produce, manufacture, distribute and promote records.
Gypsy Soul Records artists are distributed by Warner Music in Canada, FUGA and Proper Music Group internationally.
