Folk is People is a Jacksonville-based indie folk band led by singer-songwriter, Stacey Bennett. Their music is eloquently crafted into a melodic blend of stringed and percussive instruments backed by Bennett’s driving voice. Each song is a story meticulously written into verse and chorus.
Folk is People came to life in 2012 as a folk duo with members, Stacey Bennett and Rick Grice. After releasing an EP and touring, the pair took on other endeavors and the project was halted with no revival date in sight. Bennett resurrected the project in 2015 after becoming what she describes as “incessantly mundane” and enlisted Grice to engineer and produce the new album. Folk is People’s first full-length album, The Devil Always Comes, was released October 25, 2016. The record sounds like indie rock married a folk song and started a pop band. It is a conceptual piece depicting the inner dissonance experienced when we reflect on and attempt to reconcile misdeeds in the pursuit of virtue.
"Strangerwolf is filled with passion, fury, fear and redemption leaking through every verse. The two [(Rick and Ryan Kennedy, the Murray Hill natives behind Strangerwolf)] cite musical influences from bands/artists such as Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, Father John Misty, and the Avett Brothers. In varying ways, [their] songs will light a fire within you, sting you and ultimately, heal you." — Corey Burke, Indie Soul Media
