Tucker Lane was formed in 2015 by Leslie Stanwyck and Johnny Sinclair. The core members Leslie Stanwyck (vocals), Johnny Sinclair (bass), Warren Medernach (drums) and Brent Carlin (guitar) are all Saskatoon residents.
Leslie and Johnny were members of the well-known internationally acclaimed band The Pursuit of Happiness. They made two albums with TPOH, Love Junk which went platinum and One-Sided Story which went gold. Both albums were produced by the legendary Todd Rundgren. The duo learned a lot about music production from this experience. They also toured through Europe with the Eurythmics and the U.S. with Duran Duran. Leslie and Johnny then left in 1990 to form another renowned band called Universal Honey. They put out another seven albums all of which they had a hand in producing and recording. To date they have well over 50 placements in tv shows and movies. They also toured North America for many years opening for seemingly everyone from Alanis Morisstte and No Doubt to Everclear and the Goo Goo Dolls. The latter of which they opened over 100 shows for, as well as multiple headlining club tours from Halifax to San Diego and Miami to Nanaimo!
In 2010, with their young son, they decided to take the huge step towards a quieter life and move from Toronto to Saskatoon where Johnny Sinclair was born and raised.
In Saskatoon, they started playing local clubs as an acoustic duo and soon put together a band that would perform several times a month. In 2015 they recorded their debut album as Tucker Lane and in 2017 they were nominated as SCMA Best New Group. With plenty of performances and festivals under their belt they earned a spot on the national cast of the beloved Telemiracle 43.
Leslie and Johnny are also both members of the SCMA and volunteer their time to the music community whether it be in the form of planning and working on events or mentoring Saskatchewan artists.
This year Johnny and Leslie also launched their indie label and production house Honeytunes. They have produced and recorded a track for Lane Shields (I’ll Cheers to That) and 3 tracks for upcoming Saskatchewan artist Katelyn Lehner with Tucker Lane as the backing band.
Tucker Lane have now written another album's worth of new material and is ready to record with the goal of releasing in 2020.
