Bone & Bell is part breath, part bellow. Led by Texas artist and musician Heather Smith, Bone & Bell combines haunting vocal harmonies and lush instrumentation to create a dissonant prayer: both heavenly and tension-filled.
Heather spent her childhood exploring the forests of Poetry, Texas, with a song on her lips and a dog on her trail. Over the years, Heather accumulated a series of instruments and with them wrote a series of songs. "Loom", Bone & Bell's first EP, is a sampling of baritone ukulele songs. "Organ Fantasies", Bone & Bell's second EP release (May 2012), is a collection of songs inspired by vintage organs gathered from alleyways, fleamarkets and secondhand stores.
Bone & Bell has evolved over time. What was once a solo effort has become a quintet. Heather recently joined forces with Ryan Farnham (drums- formerly of Catfish Haven), Rick Roberts (bass, keys) and Jason Tuller (guitar, bass).
"Songwriter Heather Smith has a special talent for melancholy, precise folk songs that are instantly hummable and carefully crafted. Her music is regal and charming, possessing a literary feel."- Matt Garman, Chirp Radio
"Epically chill bump inducing... These are the beautiful doldrums, or the spooky leftovers from something mysteriously charged that make you sit still and soak it all in."- Sean Moeller, Daytrotter
