About Orange Sky Dream
Orange Sky Dream features soulful ballads, barn-burning blues, and downright dirty rock' n' roll that characterize the live set while delving into new emotional and stylistic terrain.
The album derives its name from a powerful and timely source of inspiration – the pressing environmental crises gripping the planet, particularly in the band's home state of California, where orange skies blanketed San Francisco in 2020 due to wildfires. Beyond environmental advocacy, Orange Sky Dream explores diverse themes, from female empowerment to fostering empathy in a world that often seems divided. These messages are skillfully woven into a musical tapestry of rockin' guitar solos and captivating beats.
Orange Sky Dream will captivate audiences with its unique blend of musical genres and poignant message, serving as a testament to Wreckless Strangers' commitment to delivering a musical experience that entertains and inspires.
The first singles, "Shudda Known," “Fast Girls,” and “Grace of God,” were recently released and are available on streaming platforms now.

About Mark Karan
Best known for his extended time around the Grateful Dead scene as lead guitarist for Bob Weir & Ratdog, Mark Karan is far more than his time in the "land of the Dead" might imply... a consummate team player for many years, his six-string contributions have added something special to tours with Ratdog, The Other Ones, Delaney Bramlett, Dave Mason and Paul Carrack... and as a "value-added" guest for impromptu sit-ins with the Allman Brothers, Trey Anastasio, Gov't Mule, Jackie Greene, ALO, Levon Helm, Chuck Leavell, Little Feat, Phil and Friends and many more.
