Boasting members from along the Gulf Coast, The Krickets’ sweet, harmonic Americana quickly made this all-female supergroup a hit across the nation. The quartet recently used online fundraising to bankroll the follow-up to their debut “Spanish Moss Sirens.”
While the group prepares to return to the studio, band member Emily Stuckey continues to perform her original tunes as a solo act. This Fairhope native’s sound is a mix of influences including Dolly Parton, Stevie Nicks and Billie Holiday.
Stuckey will entertain her Manci’s crowd with her homegrown songs, four of which can be found on her 2015 self-titled EP. Stuckey’s work on this album is a clever mix of folk, pop and traditional country with a tinge of soul, courtesy of Stuckey’s beautiful vocals. Even though the album features a full band, Stuckey’s bold acoustic guitar and pristine vocal work should provide exceptional live delivery of these tracks, as well as others from her catalog of originals.
