“In 15 years as RECKLESS KELLY we've had to learn things the hard way and figure out what works for us and what doesn't,” says the band. “Trial and error. We've always recorded to 2-inch analogue tape and we've always earned our fans one at a time. (Grass roots baby!) Over the years we've dabbled in conventional methods of promotion, touring and, of course, recording. Starting a record company and releasing our own records is something we have strived for our entire carrier. Now we feel we are finally in the perfect position with our business and band and are doing just that.”

GOOD LUCK & TRUE LOVE is quintessential RECKLESS KELLY with a blend of the gritty and the sublime. There are road songs ("Weatherbeaten Soul," "Hit The Ground Running"), tunes about music ("New Moon Over Nashville," "I Stayed Up All Night Again") and others about hard times (“Save Me From Myself”) and good old-fashioned heartbreak (“Give It A Try,” "Guarded Heart," "She Likes Money, He Likes Love" and "I Never Liked St. Valentine"). “Taking our old school approach a little bit further on this record, we made a rule that if someone in the band can't play it, it's not going on the record,” explains the band. “We are proud to say that with the exception of an outstanding harmony vocal by our good friend Dani Flowers, we played every instrument on this record and tracked almost everything live.”

RECKLESS KELLY formed in Bend, OR in 1996 but quickly established themselves as a strong live act in and around Austin, TX and have been praised by Country Weekly for “injecting its hooky songs with rock ’n’ roll propulsion without sacrificing melody or meaning” (2009 review of Bulletproof). Michael Corcoran of the Austin American Statesman called them “a rock band that writes country songs” and said "Bulletproof is an aggressive album with an anti-war song that outprotests James McMurtry. Even in the most stagnant of subgenres (alt-country), the Kellies strive to remain fresh…(6/11/08)”

Bulletproof earned the group a #1 Americana and #1 Texas Charts song spot with “Ragged As The Road.” That album also earned them an Americana Music Association nomination for “Duo or Group of the Year (2009).”
