The Whispering Gypsies were formed by Malachi Mills and Logan Pethel, and it started as a joke. As baseball teammates in high school, they met up to jam together, and soon decided to book a gig at Picnic Cafe in Dahlonega, GA. After a few other gigs together and positive reactions from local fans, The Whispering Gypsies officially became a band. They soon met bassist Sean Thomas and began writing their own songs. Very shortly, with the help of Mile1 Records, they released their first single "If I Was Yours" on iTunes and Spotify.
Beginning in January of 2016, The Whispering Gypsies will begin working on their debut album/EP. They share a common love for Blues, Rock, and Soul with a southern influence.
