Reckless Kelly sets '10 for new CD

Thursday, November 26, 2009 – Reckless Kelly will release "Somewhere in Time" on Feb. 9, 2010 on Yep Roc Records. On their third self-produced record, the band returns to its roots incorporating the "hardcore cowboy songs" of Idaho native Pinto Bennett.

"While this is Pinto's material, this is very much a Reckless Kelly record," said vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Cody Braun. "It's simply a bunch of great songs we wanted people to hear."

His brother Willy Braun said, "I think this time we did again what we always set out to do which is to make a record we can be proud of."

Along with band mates, David Abeyta on lead guitar who co-produced the album, Jay Nazz on drums, and Chris Schelske on bass, Reckless Kelly explores their country influences and introduces Bennett's music to fans.

Debut single Best Forever Yet will be released to radio in early 2010.

This release follows 2008's "Bulletproof "

CD reviews for Reckless Kelly

Sunset Motel CD review - Sunset Motel
With "Buckaroo" off Reckless Kelly's "Sunset Motel" the band gives us one of the best hurtin' songs in recent memory. "You were my angel/I was your buckaroo," they tell us with deep regret. And after all the booze has worn off, the cold, harsh facts of life come clearly into view. "Now that I'm sober/I wish you were home." "Sunset Motel" is like a sturdy truck, strong and dependable. It also contains plenty of creative charm. »»»
Long Night Moon CD review - Long Night Moon
The Austin-based Reckless Kelly's follow-up to "Good Luck & True Love" has a somewhat softer edge than their acclaimed 2011 release, though songwriter Willy Braun's cynical view of love and relationships remains fully intact. The opening title track sets the tone ("I wonder why I keep torturing my soul/Beneath the urban sky") that pervades the album. There are still some solid country rockers, including Real Cool Hand and Every Step Of the Way, and particularly I »»»
Good Luck & True Love CD review - Good Luck & True Love
The latest from Austin-based Reckless Kelly is primarily songwriter Willy Braun's exploration of relationships delivered in a mix of hard-edged rockers and country ballads. The band is at their best with the cynical rocker She Likes Money, He Likes Love ("They'll stay together 'till they find something better") which features hot guitar licks from David Abeyta. Braun's jaded view of love is also on display in the mid-tempo Weatherbeaten Soul ("This old heart »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

The name Turnpike Troubadours suggests traveling music. Strap yourself in and get ready for an exhilarating ride. This Oklahoma-based roots-rock unit soars on its fourth release. Not to diminish the strong songwriting from leader Evan Felker, it's the band's pulsating musicianship with an array of electric instruments combined with fiddle and pedal steel that makes the sound so arresting. »»»
First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
