Reckless Skyline features an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk. Produced by acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault and recorded live in four days at the cavernous Sonelab studio in Massachusetts, the band worked fast and hard, cutting 19 tracks in all. Along with Canty, they create a sound that harnesses the grit and spark at the heart of American music, tempered with a voice both haunting and distinct.
“A casually devastating voice and unshakable poise” - San Francisco Chronicle
“Reckless Skyline manages to combine elements of folk, blues, country and rock without sounding unfocused” – AllMusic
“A stirring, pedal steel-powered pep talk from a Nashville-bound songwriter” – NPR Music
"A delight... Fine songwriting on an album of 12 really strong songs" – The Telegraph
“The Vermont-raised singer-songwriter has an Appalachian grit” – The Bluegrass Situation
“Tapping into blues, country, mountain ballads, and roots rock, Canty’s songs have an elemental sound – reflecting the influence of such songwriters as Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Johnny Cash and Tom Petty.” - Acoustic Guitar
