''The Reklaws have just released their best work yet with their new EP Sophomore Slump,'' says Kim Cyr, NOW and THEN Magazine. ''Sophomore Slump is full of heart with vulnerable lyrics of life's journeys and experiences told in unique ways that really draw you in. The fun side of Jenna and Stuart really plays itself out in each one of the songs that really show the growth of these two singer/songwriters. It's infectious. You can't help but feel you are having fun with your toes tapping and singing right along with them.''
''This is the 2nd full-length album to be released by The Reklaws with real-life stories and lyrics that you can feel that really showcase just how much these two both have grown and honed in the craft of real storytelling. They have tapped into that real emotion you need to connect with your audience. They both feel so strongly about representing real-life experiences that they have lived through their music. It is what I loved when I first met these two who had just come off the stage as the Emerging Artists of the Year at the Boots and Hearts Music Festival years ago. The Reklaws are one of the hottest country acts in Canadian country music today and this EP shows us why.''
''Jenna has a beautiful voice that lends itself beautifully to storytelling. She knows how to be vulnerable and allow the lyrics to carry her that delivers the heart of the song. It is really nice to listen to. Stuart, well what can I say? From the shy young guy who played guitar at the festival to the frontman singing the words he lives and breaths, I would say he has found his voice,'' says Cyr.
''This EP is really going to be a lot of fun to hear live and is very radio-friendly. On Sophomore Slump the CCMA-winning duo mix that playful side and the sweet, toe-tapping vibes of ''You Problem'' to go with a smooth cool little song like ''So Crazy It Just Might Work'' that just might give the magic back to what love is all about. Perfect for what is happening in the world today. Here’s hoping you give these ones a spin.''

About The Reklaws
Raised on their family farm in rural Ontario, The Reklaws, made up of sibling duo Jenna and Stuart Walker, signed their first major record deal with Universal Music in 2017. They found success with their second single “Long Live the Night” when it quickly became platinum-certified. The single went on to win the 2019 CCMA for top-selling Canadian single of the year and 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 Reklaw's first #1 at Canadian Country Radio and is certified Gold in Canada. In 2019 the duo completed their first national tour with Dean Brody and Dallas Smith, earned their first JUNO nomination for “Country Album of The Year”, released their first full-length album, and received their 3rd Gold Single for “I Do Too.” This year the duo released the single "Can't Help Myself” with their long-time country music hero, Dean Brody, and the now gold-certified single “Where I’m From”. To add to their growing list of accolades The Reklaws were 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. The duo reached another career milestone when their debut album Freshman Year was certified GOLD on the one-year anniversary of its release. Most recently The Reklaws were nominated for four Canadian Country Music Awards including the prestigious Entertainer of The Year award. Sophomore Slump is the duo’s latest full-length album. There’s no doubt that The Reklaws, who have garnered over 125 million streams to date, is poised to be the Country’s next superstars.
