ox and Bones is a conceptual folk collaboration between American songwriters Sarah Vitort and Scott Gilmore based in Portland, Oregon. Both artists in their own rite (Sarah Wild and The Watch, Just People), the pair had an instant spark when they met, which quickly translated to an electric songwriting chemistry. The duo combines lush two part harmonies and a complex, heartwarming lyrical landscape with soft-spoken yet rich musical accompaniment. Live, they draw their audience in with their quirky banter and adorable onstage chemistry, creating – and inspiring in their fans – an archetype for true love in the modern world.
The duo released their debut, self titled 5-song EP in August, 2017 to critical acclaim. Chris Young (Vortex Music Magazine) calls their first single “Warm” “Intimate, delicate … a soft, beautiful, harmony-rich salvo” and describes their second single “Gravity” as “countrified, in the best possible way…the lyrics share deep thoughts while discovering essential connections with another and the universe.” They are currently in the studio recording their full length album with Justin Phelps (Cake, The Mars Volta) at the Hallowed Halls in Portland, OR.
They will be embarking upon a month long European tour spanning Germany, Austria and Switzerland in November in support of the new EP followed by a nationwide US tour in early 2017.
