Reckless Johnny Wales

The son of a son of an immigrant, Reckless Johnny Wales tells his tale in his latest album, "American Heart." From Boston to San Francisco with various ports of call in between, Reckless Johnny Wales sang his songs of the '60's while sailing on a U.S. Navy Tanker during the Vietnam War years. Immersed in the Folk/Rock scene of the times, he left his mind and his ears open to many other musical genres along the way. 

By the time Reckless Johnny discovered Nashville in the '70's, his talents were noticed by record executives at Warner Bros. Records where he was hired as National Promotions Director and soon worked his way up to Senior Vice President of Promotion, Marketing and International Marketing; eventually becoming the General Manager for the company throughout the '80's and '90's. 

He retired in 2001 after helping to build the careers of Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams Jr., Randy Travis, Dwight Yoakam, Faith Hill, Keith Urban and many more. Since that time, Reckless Johnny Wales has focused on his songwriting with alter-ego co-writer, Bob Saporiti, as well as performing at clubs like the legendary Bluebird, as well as music ­festivals and venues in Europe and the United States.
