The band Folk is People is essentially Stacey Bennett. She is the singer/songwriter who wears her Appalachian Roots on her sleeve and weaves it through her music. Crisscrossing the country on tours including high-profile festivals like South by Southwest, the Jacksonville transplant has achieved the status as North Florida’s preeminent alt-folk troubadour.
Former <Folio> music writer Nick McGregor once called Folk Is People’s sound as “catchy and thorny, full of propulsive, breakneck folk songs played with a propulsive buzz, imbued with Bennett’s powerful voice.”
Stacey sat down at the <Folio> HQ with Rob Nicholson to play a few tunes and to talk about where her head is at in the game.
