Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas.
The band’s co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They performed on The Tonight Show twice. Their father taught his four sons a professional ethic – integrity, persistence, hard work and professionalism – honed over three generations. They overcame hardships, struggled for recognition, and learned the lessons of the trial and error that defined them.
In one sense, it’s remarkable in the way of any musician, athlete, or businessperson who bucks the odds.
In another, though, it’s utterly natural that Reckless Kelly, born in the dreams of the two Braun brothers and their heritage but nurtured in the bumpy road of maturity, became the very essence of Americana music in all its far-flung glory.
“We came along in that second wave of the movement,” Cody Braun says. “Son Volt’s album Trace had a major effect on us. People like Joe Ely, Ray Kennedy and Robert Earl Keen were always big supporters. Our goal was to make music that had a country vibe but a solid rock edge.”
In the end, all the recipe required was to just add water. Water facilitates life. It enriches the soul.
As Music Row magazine proclaimed, “In my perfect world, this is what country radio would sound like.”
“This” is Reckless Kelly.
Born in Victoria, Texas to a musical family, prolific recording artist and singer-songwriter Dustin Schaefer began playing the guitar as soon as he could hold it and took to performing live as early as high school. Shortly after college, he leaped into the Texas Country scene, joining Micky and the Motorcars in 2011 and appearing as a session guitarist on albums by Parker McCollum, Reckless Kelly, Aaron Einhouse, Drake Hayes, and other artists widely circulated on Texas radio.
He released his debut solo album “Playtime” in the spring of 2016, and shortly after moved to Nashville, where he joined the Black Lillies and began touring with them as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Dustin released his second album “Disconnected” in the fall of 2017, and he continues to tour both with the Black Lillies and as a solo artist. He plans to record his second album late 2019.
