The Reckless Famous cut loose on their new blues-rock barnburner Goodbye Sorrow — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
A fiery cut from their recent self-titled sophomore EP, Goodbye Sorrow bursts out of the gates with a raging riff, and succinctly follows through with savoury vocals. Mingling their influences of rock, blues, soul, funk, jazz, and even hip-hop, The Reckless Famous have carved out a unique place they can call entirely their own.
Hailing from the Treaty #6 Territories of Saskatchewan, The Reckless Famous include Adam Jack, Kyle Wuttunee, Jesse Fehr, Harlan Blayne Kytwayhat and Ray Pambrun, who are all members of Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation or Onion Lake Cree Nation. As they explain, “Our individual origin stories in music are vast and have intertwined, whether realized or not and, ultimately, our collective stories leading down roads that have accumulated into the reckless dream that indigenous rockers from the Prairies will be counted as our heroes.
“Reckless describes the unrelenting desire to transform the world using the power of music, and through focus, determination, and adaptability, this is accomplished. Famous is a tribute to our predecessors whose music has changed society for the better, whose music served as a catalyst for inner-transformation; essentially, whose music inspired, and thus is our mission and our statement: We stand to be counted among you, we are The Reckless Famous.”
