Since Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler founded Over the Rhine (shortly after completing undergraduate degrees at a small Quaker liberal arts college in Ohio) the band has quietly sold hundreds of thousands of records around the world and steadily built a loyal grassroots following.
Performing Songwriter magazine stated, “Karin Bergquist is a singer unparalleled in her subtle twists of emotion. Her voice has the power to stop the world in its tracks.”
PASTE included Over the Rhine in their list of 100 Best Living Songwriters and wrote, “There can be no adequate labels for music this dense, this conflicted, this emotionally charged. Over the Rhine creates true confessional masterpieces that know neither border no boundary.”
Over the Rhine has accepted invitations to tour with artists as varied as Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Cowboy Junkies and Ani DiFranco.
