Meet Jenna and Stuart Walker, the siblings who make up country duo, The Reklaws. Although part of a family of seven in total, these two found their passion at a young age, leading them to ultimately pursue a career in music together. Talk about a big family btw!
Jenna, being the oldest of the two, has been singing and showing off her vocal chops ever since she could talk. Stuart on the other hand began learning the guitar and singing at the age of nine. The Walker family (fun fact: Reklaw is actually Walker spelled backwards), grew up in Cambridge, Ontario, where they spent much of their younger days at their “adventure farm.” Jenna and Stuart say they both used to dress up as hillbillies and play for tourists at pig races. We would LOVE to see that! ????
It was not always fun and games though. The duo used to also work on the farm, which they say, ultimately helped shape who they are today. They learned early on that hard work pays off. The duo also says that working on the farm taught them to understand the true meaning behind country music. They say,
“It’s easy to see how you can write songs about places like this, the beauty and the stories behind every old farm is like a book of songs”
There’s way too many things we can let you know on writing, but we would let the band tell you themselves. Check out this exclusive video Q&A about their new single and more!
