Austin’s own Reckless Kelly is made up of brothers Willy and Cody Braun, who paired their state-required education with a musical school of learning taught by their father, along with Jay Nazz, David Abeyta, and Joe Miller.

Their Grammy-winning album Long Night Moon (2013) was the follow-up to 2011’s Grammy Nominated Good Luck & True Love, which took home four Lone Star Music Awards, and sent three singles to #1 on Texas Radio. Produced by band members Willy & Cody Braun, along with Lead Guitarist David Abeyta, Long Night Moon was mixed by Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris), and features additional instrumentation from legendary steel guitar player Lloyd Maines, as well as Bukka Allen (piano, organ) and Jeff Plankenhorn (dobro).

When Willy Braun, frontman and principal songwriter for the band began writing songs for Long Night Moon, he quickly found a theme emerging. “About halfway through writing this record, I noticed that almost all of the songs I was writing, whether they were songs about the road, life, or love, had something to do with traveling. It started as an accident and I decided to just go with it. Before we knew it, there was a definite theme.” It’s honest, original and constantly evolving. The group is known for their explosive live shows and a passion for making albums of substance.

On September 23rd, Reckless Kelly will celebrate their 20th anniversary with the release of Sunset Motel, their first album with Thirty Tigers and follow up their Grammy Award winning 2013 release Long Night Moon.
