Saskatchewans country band with a little twang.
Leslie Stanwyck and Johnny Sinclair were “one twang away from a country song,” their manager used to say. The pair made two albums with pop-rock legends The Pursuit of Happiness and another seven with Universal Honey, then after relocating to Saskatoon, Sask. found themselves adding that twang to their new band, Tucker Lane.
The band — core members Leslie (vocals), Johnny (bass), Wayne Pearson (drums) and Brent Carlin (guitar) with guest utility player Justin Bloudoff — grew out of the foursome’s rootsy cover band, Undercover Pirates, which put their spin on songs by Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Black Keys, Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones, The Clash and others. It then seeped into their originals.
Tucker Lane’s debut album, West of Minnesota, North of North Dakota — produced by the band — is chock full of upbeat country-pop like “Same Place;” “Wishing You Were Here,” “Sentimental Fool” and “You Still Love Me” with some edgier material such as the Stones-style rockers “Think You Know (Someone Like Me)” and “What It’s About?.” Banjo, fiddle and peddle steel are featured on nine of the 13 songs.
The couple, who met in TPOH, recorded 1988’s Love Junk and 1990’s One-Sided Story with Todd Rundgren before leaving to start Universal Honey in 1990. They had a fantastic run in both bands, a journey through music that they write about on West of Minnesota, North of North Dakota’s closing song, “What’s It About?”
