Although Jenna and Stuart Walker aka The Reklaws are no strangers to the country music world, you’ve definitely never seen them look or sound like this before. After spending the past three years cutting their teeth in Nashville, they’re back with a fresh look and sound that blends their small-town roots and love of country music with their collegiate curiosity and passion. Re-introducing themselves with their major label debut at Universal Music Canada, the duo kicked off this past summer with their most recent single, “Hometown Kids,” and are looking forward to making more waves in the new year.
“2018 is the year we’ve been working towards the past 6 years, I think what I am most looking forward to is getting our new music out and seeing how the fans react. I also can’t wait to get on the road to play shows, the stage is where we thrive,” Stuart shares.
“I think 2018 is the year we have been waiting for… we finally feel excited and full of anticipation to be able to share what we have been working on for a long time! We look forward to pushing our boundaries through both our music and our fan base! The Reklaws music is Universal and our dreams are big, we cannot wait to see what the US fans think of it!” adds Jenna.

Born and raised in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, the musically talented siblings spent their childhood days on their family’s “Adventure Farm” where they would perform for hundreds of tourists that would come to see the corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and pig races. The two kicked off their careers and brought the name The Reklaws into country music in 2012, where they won the CCMA Discovery Program. Following this success, The Reklaws entered the 2013 Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase and took the crown along with a single release by Big Machine Canada. In 2013, the duo opened for Dierks Bentley on the main stage at Boots & Hearts in front of 40,000 of country music’s largest fans. The Reklaws were invited back to the festival in 2014, 2015, and 2016 where they hosted the main stage and opened for acts like Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Thomas Rhett, and more.
