2016 has been the year of The Krickets. When Lagniappe readers first learned of this all-female group, The Krickets were using Kickstarter to finance their debut album. After the campaign’s success, this quartet of veteran Gulf Coast artists entered the studio with Muscle Shoals producer Ben Tanner, also known for his keyboard work with Alabama Shakes.

Before long, the public was enjoying the sweet sounds of The Krickets’ debut album, “Spanish Moss Sirens.” Aptly titled, the release features The Krickets’ beautiful, ethereal harmonies and memorable arrangements.

Subsequently, The Krickets quickly made quite an impression with audiences on the Gulf Coast and beyond. Critics and the public alike have warmly embraced the foursome.

The Krickets recently traveled to New York City to attend the Independent Music Awards, where they were named “Folk Artist of the Year” for “Spanish Moss Sirens.” The Krickets are definite crowd pleasers, as well as a great excuse to spend Sunday evening in Olde Towne Daphne.
