Biography

Universal Honey was formed in 1992 by Johnny Sinclair and Leslie Stanwyck.
Sinclair & Stanwyck met in 1988 while playing in the Canadian band The Pursuit of Happiness, which achieved moderate success world wide. Sinclair played bass, was a vital member from their inception and Stanwyck sang backing vocals and played guitars. They recorded 2 albums with TPOH (both produced by Todd Rundgren), 1988’s “Love Junk” and 1990’s “One-Sided Story” and toured North America and Europe.

During this time Sinclair and Stanwyck started a song writing partnership that ultimately lead them in a different direction than TPOH and early in 1991 the duo left the band to form their own group. They put together a pop rock band to play the songs they had written and then slugged it out touring extensively before recording their debut album “Magic Basement”. The album blended many influences of them both but had a sound that was unique and fresh which introduced Stanwyck’s charming vocals against a back drop of melodic yet driving guitars. The album received rave reviews and the singles “Just Before Mary Goes” and “Upfront With You” broke out on to the air waves with cross over appeal by getting college, alternative and rock radio support in Canada and the U.S.
Sinclair & Stanwyck, as a new and exciting writing duo already started making headway as credible song writers by having songs from their first album winning spots in television shows and movies. “Just Before Mary Goes” was used in it’s entirety in the opening scene in Ashley Judd and Luke Perry’s movie Normal Life.
