A side project of John Wendland and Andy Ploof of Rough Shop, the Wilhelms are an acoustic duo with a penchant for solid songwriting, intertwining strings and soaring harmonies.

At a glance, the Wilhelms appear to be a simplistic entity: two men playing two instruments, and singing. Only when you really start to listen does it becomes obvious that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Those familiar with Rough Shop will find the same level of musicianship in the Wilhelms.

The stripped-down arrangements show off just how well Wendland and Ploof are able to weave their voices and instrumentation into songs with unique flare. If you think folk music is bland and boring, give the Wilhelms a listen and see if they can't change your tune.
