Raised in rural Ontario, The Reklaws are comprised of the brother-sister duo Jenna and Stuart Walker. Growing up on an “adventure farm”, The Reklaws have had a love of entertainment from a young age, performing at different venues across Canada and began to turn heads in 2012 when they were awarded the CCMA Discovery Artist title followed by the 2013 Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase title. Since then, they have shared the stage with some of country’s best including Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Thomas Rhett and more. The pair have spent long hours in Nashville crafting their songs and their efforts have paid off as they came back with an infectious sound, with an authentic mix of pop and country and a “soundtrack-to-your-life” vibe. The Reklaws took the summer of 2017 by storm with their major label debut on Universal Music Canada and the release of their debut single “Hometown Kids” which quickly charted at #15, garnered over 1 million streams, and major playlist adds including Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “PM Mix”.
The Reklaws have had a massive start to 2018 with their second single “Long Live the Night” being the most streamed song of all Canadian country artists released in 2018. Achieving Gold certification and being selected as the theme song for Thursday Night Football on TSN as an integral part of the weekly CFL broadcast, the Reklaws have solidified themselves as the next Canadian superstars in country music. In August of 2018 they released their debut EP, Feels Like That, which over the weekend was the #1 selling Canadian country album in Canada again on iTunes and has earned adds on some of Spotify’s biggest country playlists. The duo performed on the live broadcast for the 2018 CCMA Awards on Sept 9 and won the SiriusXM Rising Star award along with their nominations for Video of the Year (for Hometown Kids), and Group or Duo of the Year. While their original half-time kickoff performance in Winnipeg was unfortunately cancelled due to rain, The Reklaws were soon surprised by CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie and TSN host Kate Beirness live on TSN with an invitation to perform on the Sirius XM Kickoff show at the 106th Grey Cup at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium on November 25, 2018 which broadcasted live to 3.25 million fans nationwide.
