Andie Kay Joyner and Heather Stalling had to experience life before they felt ready to write and sing about it. After meeting in 1992, both were already accomplished musicians/vocalists, having grown up in musical families that exposed them to bluegrass festivals and folk scenes at an early age. For the next decade, the girls further groomed themselves for their own band by playing in several other bands, backing dozens of Texas artists like Mark David Manders, Bob Schneider, Ed Burleson, Johnny Lee, and Max Stalling. The two shared a house and wrote almost every day for a year and a half. With maybe a half dozen songs penned, they played every Tuesday at the legendary Dallas honky-tonk, Adair’s Saloon, and held that gig for a little over a year. Heather then signed on for a regular stint with Texas singer-songwriter Mark David Manders, while Andie Kay frequently came along to sing backup vocals. They took up songwriting in earnest and became self-described “world-class hotel jammers.” Over time, these sessions evolved and there was finally enough material to complete an album. With the help of a few friends and the assembly of a group of extraordinary musicians, blacktopGYPSY was formed.

Witty lyrics, wonderfully selected covers, powerful lead vocals, beautiful harmonies, great instrumentation, and specifically a fiddle I'm truly in love with...this will be one quickly addictive album for anyone. Such an excitement that it's finally available! You girls (and guys) ROCK!!!

What a revelation. Just saw Blacktop Gypsy at The Canadian River Music Fest and they brought down the house. Full of energy and good hard hitting music and wonderful harmonies. See them live whenever you get the chance.

As an artist and Owner of An Entertainment group I had the pleasure of running sound at the Crandall Cotton Gin for BalcktopGYPSY. I even more amazed with them than the first time I heard them. I am honored to have met and become friends with them all. The girls with thier harmonies are just unreal. I look forward to seeing them again and I will have all my friends there to see them. Most amazing group this musician has had the honor to see perform..

Wonderfully talented group! I have had the honor of seeing them live at The Hangar Bar in Greenville, TX and it was one of the most enjoyable shows I have ever seen. Andie Kay and Heather are also two of the nicest women I have ever met. Their music is incredible and they are both very talented musicians. Don't miss a chance to see blacktopGYPSY live. Their CD is just as good as their live shows - it is one of my favorite CDs!
