With an acoustic guitar in his hands and a giant stomp box under his feet, Winnipeg’s Greg Rekus delivers his own unique brand of punk rock-infused folk music guaranteed to shake rafters, move floorboards, and get even the most stoic of concert-goers out of their seats.
Greg has just announced the release of a new album for 2020, as well as new tour dates for March / April 2019! All dates can be found on the official tour poster.
On this tour announcement, Rekus comments:
“It is a need for me to tour regularly! There are some artists who have had success and tour very little, if any at all. Some people just get lucky, but by far, the most successful artists, especially today, have got there from grinding it out on the road. Some people can’t stand it, but I love it! It makes me feel so free and alive. Time seems to move differently on the road also. You are meeting so many new people and places everyday…
I’m on the road approximately 6 or 7 months a year. It may seem like a lot, but it is usually only like 150 shows a year. Imagine you only worked 150 days a year! That’s more than half the year days off, so it’s actually pretty manageable.
After this tour, I’m going to stay home to start working on a new album. This new album is not far from where I left off with ‘Sibling Cities’, my last record, but kinda an upgrade. Stay tuned!”
