The Krickets are a female ‘swamp folk’ group from Florida’s Gulf Coast. Produced by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes, they released their debut album ‘Spanish Moss Sirens’ in May of 2016. Folk harmony-driven with an earthy acoustic instrumentation, the music is what Paste Magazine describes as “a truly stunning, one-of-a-kind sound.”
Recently named the 2016 IMEA Folk Artist of the Year and recipient of the 2016 Folk/Singer Songwriter Song of the Year at The Independent Music Awards, the group originally came together to play a cancer benefit in honor of Cristina “Cricket” Russell. Now, they are able to support the cause by donating a portion of every album sale to The Cricket Fund and Beyond which provides women’s health services to the uninsured.
