Stone Breath - 1998 - A Silver Thread To Weave The Season

Stone Breath was not a part of any collective, or any commune. Stone Breath was not a part of any scene. Stone Breath was part of the earth. Metal, hair, wood, skin, flesh, leaf, breath, and bone made our songs. We sang hymns to God and the green wood.
Stone Breath was not new. It was cracked. Broken. Imperfect. Hidden. Weathered by the seasons.
Finally, an American inclusion into the apocalyptic folk genre that does not pale in comparison to its European counterparts, and a recording that Stone Breath should be proud of. Timothy Renner writes songs like a true-born troubadour and lyrics like some sort of a modern day William Blake, crafting them into gentle, yet jarring compositions that equal no other. Acoustic guitar that sounds folk, but not like beatnik or hippy folk, but like the music that one must have heard at the formation of the American nation. Bluegrass sounding Banjos, whistles, flutes, dumbeks, dulcimer, catfish guitar, and harmonium all lend a uniqueness to this recording that stands out amongst the crowd, evoking a time when studios, filters, and electricity were not needed to make finely crafted music.
