The Krickets are a female Americana group from the gulf coast who's music is what Paste Magazine describes as "a truly stunning, one-of-a-kind sound." Fresh out of the studio, the band just finished a sophomore album entitled 'Redbird.' Produced by Grammy nominee Sam Ashworth and recorded at Brown Owl Studios in Nashville this album has everything from traditional country to folk rock steeped in harmony and an earthy instrumentation.

2016 IMA Folk Song of the Year winner for their single "Cool Cool Water," The Krickets are a female swamp-folk band that 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. They were also named the 2016 IMEA Folk Artist of the Year.
