The Krickets are a female Americana group from the gulf coast who's music is what Paste Magazine called a "a truly stunning, one-of-a-kind sound." IMA Folk Song of the Year winner for their single "Cool Cool Water," The Krickets released their first album "Spanish Moss Sirens" in May of 2016. Produced by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes and recorded in Muscle Shoals, the album debuted at #1 on Amazon's ‘Best Sellers’, ‘Movers and Shakers’ and ‘Modern Folk’ charts. Blending country, bluegrass, folk and Americana has allowed them to play for a diverse audience since then from Nashville's famous SPBGMA Bluegrass convention to the indie folk lovers at SXSW.
The band just released their sophomore album entitled 'Redbird' and were excited so their title track of the album take home Alt Country Song of the Year at the 2019 Independent Music Awards. This time the band headed to Nashville to work with Grammy nominated producer Sam Ashworth (Joy Williams, The Lone Bellow, H.E.R.) resulting in an album that has everything from traditional country to folk rock all steeped in their signature swamp harmony. Originally coming together to play a breast cancer benefit in honor of Cristina "Cricket" Russell, The Krickets continue to support the cause by donating a portion of proceeds from every album sale. This fund, created by Sacred Heart Hospital, provides screenings to the uninsured in rural north Florida. Click here to donate to the Cricket Fund.
