From The Krickets
Female swamp-folk band that just released their debut album, Spanish Moss Sirens. Produced by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes an recorded at SunDrop Sound in Florence, Alabama. Debuted at #1 on Amazon's Beller Sellers list, Hot New Releases List and Folk Release charts.
Band members: Melissa Bowman (guitar, banjo), Emily Stuckey (guitar, percussion, mandolin), Lauren Spring (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica) and Katrina Kolb (bass) To make a very long story shorter: Yes, we all were raised on music, would rather play than eat, came out of the womb singing, blah, blah, blah. Basically somewhere between 2011-2015: 2011 - Melissa + Emily had a band in Fairhope Alabama together. 2014 - Melissa moves to Fl and formed a duo with Lauren after playing a cancer benefit for Sacred Heart's Cricket Fund, hence 'the Krickets' came to be. (with a K as to not be confused with Buddy Holly's Crickets) - Emily begins to play with fellow Alabamer Katrina. 2015 - Emily moves to Santa Rosa Beach and Melissa invites Emily to play with her and Lauren. - Emily invites Katrina to play with the new trio. **** wine time + tight harmony = The Krickets are born.**** the wine was that good. made by Vine Ferus. it's magical stuff. Melissa and Lauren would have never played a note together had they not joined forces to play a cancer benefit for The Cricket Fund.
