Bone & Bell is part breath, part bellow. Led by artist and multi-instrumentalist Heather Smith, Bone & Bell combines haunting vocal harmonies and finger picking patterns to create a dissonant prayer: both heavenly and tension-filled.

The beginning:

Beginnings are often simple. For Bone & Bell, it all started with a baritone ukulele and a voice. Over the years, Heather accumulated a series of ukuleles and with them wrote a series of songs. Loom, Bone & Bell's first EP, is a sampling of those songs. It was recorded at home by Jason Tuller and was released September 2010.

The build:

Just six months after releasing Loom on the internet, Bone & Bell was opening for Oscar award winning Marketa Irglova (Tomorrow Never Knows Festival), performing live on National Public Radio (WBEZ's 848) and recording a session at Daytrotter. The remaining year has included highlights like opening for Peter Bjorn & John and playing the first Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements Festival.

The future:

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).

A new album is anticipated for Spring 2012.
