The band members conceived of Uncle Wade on the Hudson River train line, as a way to capture and convey the joys of simplicity in music. Art Labriola is a prize-winning soundtrack composer for TV. Jerry Krenach has drummed with Lou Reed, Chris Whitley, and Daryl Hall. Peter Rundquist is a top NYC-based jingle composer at Sacred Noise and member of the sonic-experiment band Zoar. Andy Revkin is the odd man out. When not picking and grinning and writing songs, he is a prize-winning environment reporter for The New York Times and author of The Burning Season, a bio of slain Amazon defender Chico Mendes that was made into the HBO film of the same name, which won three Golden Globe Awards. His Times story on Judas Priest's search for a new lead singer was made into Rock Star, the 2001 heavy-metal comedy starring Mark Wahlberg & Jennifer Aniston.
