Brainchild of Manhattan based writer/musician Matt Butler, Reckless Sons thrive on being one of New York’s most versatile and interesting up and coming acts. Inspired by a truly eclectic set of influences, Reckless Sons are the product of Butler’s vision of a brand new school of American Rockn’roll. From Springsteen to The Replacements, from The Rolling Stones to The Stone Roses, Reckless Sons are an expression of love for timeless songwriting paired with an urgency that only comes from the young and hungry.
Reckless Sons’ fearless live performances have garnered them critical praise and loyal fans, as well as opportunities to support acts as diverse as Crash Kings, Hercules and Love Affair, Peter Bjorn and John, and Littl’ans. Moreover, Reckless Sons have toured The United Kingdom as well as both coasts of The United States.
Reckless Sons are no strangers to New York City’s fashionistas. After a live performance in what was formerly CBGB, Reckless Sons were chosen by John Varvatos to become the face of his new clothing brand, John Varvatos STAR USA, and have been featured in Spin magazine, Vanity Fair and various other fashion outlets since.
In preparation for the recording of their first full length album, Butler and his accomplices travelled across the US, working with esteemed writers and producers such as Angelo Petraglia (Kings of Leon), Raine Maida (Our Lady Peace), Mike Viola (The Candy Butchers), and Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, The Sounds).
With all this said, Reckless Sons will begin recording the initial tracks for an EP expected in the fall of 2010, to be followed quickly by their debut full length album. Head over to RecklessSons.com for some free music!
