The Krickets are a Folk-Americana group from the Florida Gulf Coast. Released late last year, their second full-length studio release, Redbird, has had an impressive reception.
Produced by Sam Ashworth at Nashville's acclaimed Brown Owl Studio, the album showcases the band's musical depth and diversity of talent.
Their first album, Spanish Moss Sirens, produced the hit single, Cool Cool Water, named Folk Song of the Year by the Independent Music Awards. The Krickets won the Folk Artist of the Year IMA in 2016.
The Krickets are Amanda Kolb (guitar, fiddle, mando), Emily Stuckey (guitar, percussion, mando), Lauren Spring (guitar, fiddle, mando) and Katrina Kolb (bass). They donate of portion of each album sale to support The Cricket Fund and Beyond (named for Cricket Russell) providing women's health services for the uninsured.
Ben de la Cour was raised in the artistically rich and musically diverse neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York. As a teenager he formed a band with his brother and began playing local bars and dives well before either boy could legally be inside those establishments.
Ben has lived in Havana, London, Los Angeles and New Orleans, soaking up the musical culture of each place along the way. He finally settled in Nashville. Hot on the heels of his first album, Midnight in Havana, Ben won the prestigious New Folk Competition at the Kerville Folk Festival in 2016. In 2018 he released The High Cost of Living Strange, which debuted at number 22 on the Americana music charts and received favorable reviews from NPR and No Depression (The Journal of Roots Music).
Troubadour and former syndicated cartoonist Roy Schneider has developed a devoted fan base for his particular flavor of Americana music through international radio airplay and consistent touring with life-and-stage partner Kim Mayfield.
Playfully dubbed Blue-Twangled Folk ‘n’ Roll, Schneider and Mayfield have brought their musical blend of the gritty, fun, soulful and sweet to delighted audiences across the USA and Europe.
They have won honors at the Kerville New Folk Competition, the Telluride Blues & Brews Acoustic Blues Competition and the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase in New York. Roy and Kim have received ganerous airplay on both sides of the Atlantic and glowing reviews from major industry players including No Depression and the UK's Maverick Magazine.
