Live Music Featuring The Loving Thorns says
After closing up shop on their last band, a hard rock outfit called R50, in 2003, singer/guitarist Geoff Abraham, guitarist Finn Walling and bassist Aaron Aker took a little break before hitting the scene again.

It would be four years before they put together a proper new project. In early 2007, they returned with a new sound and a new batch of songs, calling themselves The Loving Thorns.

The Loving Thorns play what can only be described as modern American rock 'n’ roll, with a pinch of country and blues thrown in — classic without sounding “classic rock.” The buzz-genre they get lumped into is “Americana”; in fact, they just won Creative Loafing’s Best Of The Bay Reader’s Poll for “Best Local Americana/Roots/Alt-Country Act.”
