Bio: Stone Breath is part of the earth. Metal, hair, wood, skin, flesh, leaf, breath, and bone make our songs. We sing of ghosts and the green wood. ..Stone Breath is not new. It is cracked. Broken. Imperfect. Hidden. Weathered by the seasons... ..Stone Breath began in 1995 and continues today.
“...Twist of Thorn has quickly become one of my favorites. Almost completely avoiding the traditional guitar, Twist of Thorn is mostly centered around the use of harp and "lute guitar" (a guitar with a lute body, giving it a much more lute-like tone), and the outcome is nothing short of pure musical magic. With the much more "ancient" sounding instruments (harp and lute both predate the guitar), this collection of songs takes on a much more pastoral, mystical and medieval sort of character. At his most bard-like, Renner's calm, sleepy baritone only furthers the "Renaissance" comparison. A quiet, sparse exercise in modern American folk perfection.”
