2007 - full-length record to be released summer 2007

2006 - The Reckless Sweethearts (5-song EP)



The Reckless Sweethearts have been charming audiences in their hometown of Saint John and beyond since 2005 with their polished, hook-driven songs. The Sweethearts' heart-on-sleeve lyrics, affecting harmonies, and pure pop sensibilities with an undercurrent of roots flavor evoke at times Cowboy Junkies, Sarah Harmer, and 10,000 Maniacs.

The ethereal vocals of front woman and principal songwriter Kyla Wright take centre stage. Tracey Lavigne's harmonies and melodic guitar and mandolin riffs transform what could have been solo coffeehouse tunes into turn-up-the-radio gems. The rhythm section of Joanne Sheils on upright bass and Mike Dukes on drums brings it all home. With an EP under their belts and a new batch of big, shiny songs tried and tested on stage, the band plans to release their first full-length record in summer 2007.

The Reckless Sweethearts have shared the stage with such notables as Fred Eaglesmith, David Myles, In-Flight Safety, and The Most Serene Republic.
