Stone and Snow
Stone & Snow is an alt-folk pairing of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Karen Bridges and Clint Thomson. In 2012, they began a collaboration filled with close harmonies and thoughtful lyrics. They gave it a name that gives nod to the mountain landscapes of the West– Stone & Snow.
Successful crowdfunding campaigns resulted in three self-produced full-length studio albums: Love is a Weapon (2019), Devil That I Know (2016), and These Are the Hills (2014). All three albums were recorded by David Rossi of Bombsight Recording Studio (Bloomington, IL). Love is a Weapon was mastered by Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room (Fort Collins, CO). Devil That I Know and These Are The Hills were mastered by Collin Jordan at The Boiler Room (Chicago, IL).
Their songs have taken them on the road to places like Summer Camp Music Festival (Chillicothe, IL), Mile of Music Festival (Appleton, WI), the NAMM Show (Anaheim, CA) and the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
They currently reside in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Karen and Clint are co-creators of a micro-venue with Chris Gray and Joel Hunter of Half Hazard Press. The Hallowed Hall is a 50-seat listening room in Bloomington, Illinois. An acoustically beautiful room, The Hallowed Hall affords guests an intimate musical experience. All guests receive a poster designed by Half Hazard Press. Many of the performances at The Hallowed Hall sell-out in advance, and it’s the only dedicated listening room in Bloomington-Normal.
