Things of Stone and Wood

Things of Stone and Wood or ToSaW were an Australian folk-rock band which formed in 1989. The original line-up was Michael Allen on bass guitar and backing vocals; Greg Arnold on lead vocals and acoustic guitar; Justin Brady on violin, mandolin and harmonica; and Tony Floyd on drums and percussion. Two of their albums, The Yearning (7 March 1993) and Junk Theatre (26 March 1995) peaked at No. 8 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Their 1992 single, "Happy Birthday Helen" reached No. 9 on the ARIA Singles Chart, which was written by Arnold for his then-girlfriend, whom he later married. At the ARIA Music Awards of 1993 the group won 'Best New Talent' for "Share this Wine". Arnold won 'Songwriter of the Year' at the 1993 APRA Awards.
