THE REKLAWS RELEASE NEW SINGLE, “WHERE I’M FROM,” OUT NOW
SET TO PERFORM ON CANADA TOGETHER: IN CONCERT APRIL 22
17 APRIL 2020 (TORONTO, ON) – Universal Music Canada recording artists and CCMA Award-winners The Reklaws, released a brand new single “Where I’m From” today.
“Amidst all of the craziness that is going on in the world today, we are so excited to announce the release of some new music – “WHERE I’M FROM”! A silver lining to this wild period has been the amount of time we have gotten to spend at home; connecting with family, slowing down and taking time to remember all the small but amazing things in our lives,” shared Jenna and Stuart Walker (The Reklaws). These "weird" times brought us back to our roots…”
“Where I’m From" reminds us of our childhood where the majority of our time was spent at home, with family and neighbours who were our closest friends in our hometown which felt like the whole world. “ they continued. “We hope this song reminds you of those special times and memories in your own world!”
“It has been amazing to see how the world has come together to combat this crisis; farmers, truckers, and frontline workers – members of law enforcement, nurses, and doctors all working towards a common goal. All over, small towns and big cities are banding together, putting aside any and all differences to ensure a better world moving forward. We cannot wait till we are back on the road and getting to visit every single one of you in your “Where I’m From". We are hopeful this will all get back to normal soon. Until then, let's sing, laugh, love and be there for one another.”
Jenna and Stuart Walker’s (The Reklaws) strong sense of togetherness and family is reflected in the song which they co-wrote along with Travis Wood, Gavin Slate and Todd Clark. While imminent touring plans have been postponed due to concerns over Covid-19, Canadians can watch the duo perform as part of Canada Together: In Concert broadcast on April 22nd beginning at 7:30 p.m ET / 7:00 p.m PT on Global TV. The unprecedented broadcast event is in support of Canada’s COVID-19 relief efforts.
An official music video featuring home videos documenting the siblings road to success will be released at a later date.
About The Reklaws
Raised on their family farm in rural Ontario, Jenna and Stuart Walker, signed their first major record deal with Universal Music in 2017. Their second single “Long Live the Night” kicked off what would become a massive 2018. Beyond rapidly achieving platinum-certification, the single would become the most-streamed domestic song of all Canadian country artists released in 2018, win the 2019 CCMA for top-selling Canadian single of the year and it was selected as the theme song for the Canadian Football League’s (“CFL”) Thursday Night Football for the 2018 & 2019 seasons. The momentum continued to build with the release of their debut EP, “Feels Like That”, which was awarded the 2019 CCMA for Album of the year. The title single, “Feels Like That” was also the Reklaws first #1 at Canadian Country Radio and is certified Gold in Canada. 2019 was nothing short of a humbling year for the duo; completing their first national tour with Dean Brody and Dallas Smith, earning their first JUNO nomination for “Country Album of The Year”, releasing their first full-length album and receiving their 3rd Gold Single for “I Do Too.” Most recently, the duo released a single, ``Can't Help Myself” with their long time country music hero, Dean Brody. They were also nominated for Group of the Year at the 2020 JUNO Awards marking the first time in over 20-years that a Country group was included in the category. There’s no doubt that The Reklaws are poised to be Country’s next superstars.
