With a name that gives a nod to the Rocky Mountains, Stone & Snow released their debut album, "These Are The Hills" in 2014.  In 2016, the duo ran their second successful crowd-funding campaign and released their sophomore album. The new album represents the next level in their journey as songwriters, evolving into a more electric sound while maintaining their folk roots and delving into themes about the ghosts we leave behind, the devils we know, and how to love through the zombie apocalypse.  Check out their website at www.stoneandsnow.com!
