Wreckless Strangers

The Wreckless Strangers describe their sound as a blend of blues, R&B, Americana, and good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. On Orange Sky Dream, the sextet's latest EP, that blend is heavily laced with late-70's / early-80's FM radio rock. The EP's six songs on this release evoke an era of cassette tapes and Cameros, and a generation of older Americans still shy of Social Security eligibility are going to feel like they're listening to songs they might have sung along to in high school.  

Wreckless Strangers are thrilled to announce their fall tour schedule and forthcoming EP. With exciting new shows in some of the Bay Area's most legendary concert halls - The Fillmore Auditorium, The Independent, Golden Gate Parks' Bandshell, Sweetwater Music Hall, Moe's Alley, and more - there's ample opportunity for Wreckless Strangers' fans to catch them live.

The Wreckless Strangers have been busy on the road this spring playing to new fans in the Pacific Northwest and Southern California.

From historic watering holes and outdoor festivals to free community celebrations and beer gardens to Zen barns, there are a variety of places to catch the Wreckless Strangers and their brand of “California Americana Soul” over the coming months.
