RECKLESS KELLY, named after iconic Australian highwayman Ned Kelly, is a country-rock outfit led by brothers Willy and Cody Braun.
Beginning with Millican in 1998, RK has blazed a trail and created a trademark brand of road-screaming country-rock music that's big on loud guitars, clean popping drums, and tremendously hooky songs. Released in 2008, Bulletproof was Reckless Kelly's standout album - All killer, no filler.
In 2019, Reckless Kelly’s new live recording Bulletproof Live is a presentation that all of the band’s fans will appreciate. The set list features all 14 songs from Bulletproof in the exact same sequence as they are presented on said record. Audiences get Bulletproof in its entirety in the same sequence as its original studio presentation, but better, because it is presented in a live setting. Some of the versions are close to the original studio takes, while others, such as ‘American Blood’ and ‘Passing Through’ give audiences a slightly different, take on those classics.
PATROLLED BY RADAR
You can trace an almost linear route from the unfiltered moments of Dylan and The Hawks through Gram Parsons, to Tom Petty (with a slight detour along the way for chunks of the Rolling Stones circa 1969-72 and a speed-bump called Tom Waits in the '90s).
The latest extension of this musical highway is paved by Patrolled By Radar. On their new album, Cool Your Jets, the Los Angeles-based band fuses the finer elements of the past four decades to craft rock songs whose appeal defies genre or classification.
Peter Curry of Los Straitjackets, who produced their albums, says, "Jay Souza has more in common with The Kinks than any of the current crop of 'Americana.' His songs tell stories that are simultaneously funny, sad and ironic, and the music rocks. He's one of those rare songwriters who crafts melodies as strong as his lyrics."
