About the Artist
The Recks are a gypsy, jazz, folk, funk, genre-bending, mind-melting, slap-dashing, five-piece from the Isle of Sark in the Channel Islands.
Formed in 2012, The Recks quickly gained positive reviews and became known as the “kings of schizophrenic folk” appearing at festivals such as Board Masters, Isle of Wight Festival and Boomtown Fair.
Releasing their long awaited album, The Beast From The Sea in June 2018, The Recks have been riding a wave of success, culminating in an appearance on the BBC Introducing Stage at Latitude Festival; a raucous performance that earned them airtime on The Late Junction on BBC Radio 3, Bethan Elfyn on Radio Cymru and Huw Stephens show on BBC World Service. The Recks returned to the BBC a few months later to perform a rare acoustic show at BBC Music Introducing Live 2018 for Sentric Music Publishing.
As well as performing many local shows and festivals in the Channel Islands, 2019 has seen The Recks embark on a successful ten show tour in the South of England, support up and coming band ‘King Nun’, perform at Beautiful Days Festival, packing out the Big Top Stage and play three unique shows in Sweden at the INES Showcase, ‘Live at Heart’ to full houses and rave reviews.
