With an acoustic guitar, giant stomp box, and punk rock tucked away in his back pocket, Greg Rekus' unique brand of Folk Punk or “Riot Folk” is like no other. He tours Europe regularly from London to Ukraine. He consistently plays all around the United States and Canada. Finally, he has released two full length albums and a 7 inch in several different countries through a network of indie labels.
With a new album on the horizon, Greg has again enlisted audio genius John Paul Peters (Royal Canoe, Comeback Kid, Propagandhi) as an engineer/producer. Aside from Rekus, the album will feature local musicians Tabitha Hemphill on bass and backup vocals and Erik Strom on drums. The album boasts 13 original tracks and picks up where his previous release “Punkoustic” left off, but with more of a pop punk, catchy feel. With more mature lyrics, tasteful arrangements, and diverse tempos, this album will be amongst Rekus' best work. He is very excited for a release in early 2017 and already has major touring plans in the works. Punkoustic” broke the top 30s on college charts across Canada and the USA and boasted a number 10 spot on Vancouver CITR. In addition, the album climbed all the way to number 1 on CKUW Winnipeg!
