Canadian duet chooses South MS to debut

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - They're not the typical country music artists.

"We're the Reklaws," said Jenna and Stuart Walker. "We're from Canada, Ontario Canada."

The brother and sister duet came to South Mississippi to debut their newly released single, "Kiss Kiss."

"We had choices to go anywhere, but Mississippi is kind of like a place you don't think of very often and we heard that it's a beautiful place and that's exactly what it is," said 22-year-old Jenna Walker.

"Everybody here makes you feel like you're family. It's incredible," said 19-year-old Stuart Walker.

"Our last name is Walker... Reklaw is Walker spelled backward," said Jenna explaining how they chose their name.

"Well, we grew up on a farm and it was a theme farm and we did pig race shows," said Jenna Walker. "Stuart played the banjo first and since he's done that, we've been playing and singing."

"We're just happy playing music. We're not in it for the money. We're not in it for the fame," said Stuart.

Their music hasn't been released for long and they haven't traveled the world, but the 19 and 22-year-old duet have big plans for their future and they knew where they wanted it to begin.

"Forever Mississippi will hold a place in our hearts and we're definitely coming back," said Jenna with a smile.

It's a beginning they say that will open a gate to a limitless future.
