Sugarcane Jane, otherwise known as Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee —Americana’s husband-wife duo from Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Between them, they have decades of rich musical experience: Anthony’s an in-demand multi-instrumentalist and producer who has worked with such notables as Neil Young, Steve Winwood, and Dwight Yoakam. The music they make together is simple and direct, rooted in country and rock, and anchored by their sweet and soulful harmonies.
After a request from Dwight Yoakam to put a backing band behind them and join his Fall 2019 tour as support act, they introduce The Bucket Fillers to their ensemble – Pete Nice on pedal steel, lap steel, and mandolin, Leif Bondarenko on drums, and Gary Edmonds on electric guitar, all hailing out of Birmingham, Alabama. After four standing ovations in a row opening for Dwight’s devoted fans, the Bucket Fillers has become a more prominent part of Sugarcane Jane’s sound and will continue to tour with them in 2020.
