MEET country duo Reverie Lane! I was introduced to them in November 2018 when they performed at the Light the Night walk hosted by Charles Esten. The duo has an EP out now available for purchase and stream. Reverie Lane’s sound calls upon traditional country music tones and the two singers sound great together. I am anxious to hear new music from them and watching their career take off
What’s your favorite kind of sandwich?
Spencer Bartoletti: I love me some hot chicken… also, the caprese sandwich Presley speaks of is my favorite homemade sandwich.
Presley Tucker: Oooo that’s a tough one. What a great invention though, truly. I’d probably say a balsamic chicken sandwich. I’m sure it’s out there somewhere else, but I like to think I created it. It’s basically a caprese salad on perfectly toasted ciabatta bread with pulled chicken, extra crispy bacon, and the perfect touch of balsamic glaze. It’s just simply delicious.
The Beatles or Elvis? Why?
SB: I love both, but am partial to The Beatles. Their lyrics, themes, harmonies… can’t get enough.
PT: I think that is an Apples to Oranges question. The Beatles took you to another universe with their creativity and imaging the world could be greater. Elvis was an enigma. A very handsome one at that. He is my namesake. I still wouldn’t be able to answer this question because the Beatles and Elvis have both influenced my life greatly, as I’m sure they have most of the world.
Lyrics to live by?
SB: All of them!!
PT: Hakuna Matata
“Desert Island” album?
SB: Fleetwood Mac Rumors or weight of these wings Miranda Lambert (there are 24 songs on that one haha!)
PT: I’m honestly not sure I could choose, but the first thing that comes to mind is The Eagles Greatest Hits… or The Band Greatest Hits.
What country music artists do you listen to the most?
SB: Miranda Lambert, Fleetwood Mac, any old country really!
PT: Glen Campbell, Merle Haggard, and Lee Ann Womack
How would you describe your “sound”?
SB: 90’s throw back country with some edge.
PT: True grit.
Where do you see your musical career in 5 years?
SB: Hopefully touring and meeting new fans!
PT: Traveling the world singing for anybody that will listen ❤️
Are there any instruments you don’t play but wish you did? Why?
SB: I would love to play Dobro and Fiddle. I play guitar, a little mandolin, banjo and piano.
PT: I can play guitar, but I’m not good enough to play on stage just yet. There isn’t an instrument out there that I wouldn’t want to know how to play, but I’d have to say my two favorites are dobro and mandolin. I’m just in love with their sound.
What was the best advice you have received?
SB: Remember this: very little is needed for a happy life.
PT: My grandpa always said, “Don’t take any wooden nickels (don’t be fooled)”.
And my dad always said, “Buck up”, no matter how hard it gets.
I believe He will never give you what you can’t handle.
What advice would you give to yourself at the start of your musical career?
SB: It’s gonna be a lot of work. Stay tough.
PT: Keep doing the work. When you think you‘ve worked as hard as you can, keep going. There is always something you haven’t learned. Practice makes you better, not perfect.
Where does most of your inspiration come from?
SB: Real life or friends/family.
PT: My mother, along with everyone that has worked so hard to get where they are today.
What do you consider to be your biggest achievement in your career so far?
SB: All the experiences and memories made along the way are achievements.
PT: Meeting my other half, my sister, and one of my best friend’s that I am lucky enough to share this journey with.
What’s on the horizon for you that you would like to share?
SB: Staying safe and at home right now and working on writing new music. Hoping to put out a new EP this fall!
PT: We’ll have to wait and see 😉
