Dance off your holiday hangover with Folk is People as they showcase their eclectic indie-folk pop sound at The Acoustic Coffeehouse on January 4th. Florida natives, Strangerwolf, also join the bill. THIS IS A FREE SHOW that begins at 8PM.
Folk is People is a Jacksonville-based indie folk band led by singer-songwriter and dad joke expert, Stacey Bennett. They are embarking on a southeast tour following their new release, The Devil Always Comes, a conceptual piece depicting the inner dissonance experienced when one reflects on and attempts to reconcile past misdeeds in the present pursuit of virtue. The record sounds like indie rock married a folk song and started a pop band. Folk is People has played alongside fellow indie sweethearts, Shovels and Rope, and recently headlined the 5 Points River City Pride Block Party in Jacksonville, FL.
“Folk Is People is singer/songwriter Stacey Bennett’s full-time gig, and she’s killing it. On her new album, The Devil Always Comes, there’s a raw clarity in her voice, with a bit of a yodel here and a growl there, that carries over some pristine indie folk pop. It’s loud, jangly, hopeful music, even when it’s sad and angry.” -Meeghan Kane, Auntie Bellum Magazine.
