Native Ohioans Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist launched Over the Rhine as a quartet in the spring of 1989, naming the ensemble after the historic, bohemian Cincinnati neighborhood Over-the-Rhine, where they lived and first wrote and recorded together. Their early demos and performances quickly struck a chord with listeners, and they already had a solid local following by the time they launched their recording career with a pair of well-received independently-released albums, Till We Have Faces (1991) and Patience (1992).
Their latest album, Meet Me At The Edge Of The World is a two-CD set recorded with producer Joe Henry and released on the band's own Great Speckled Dog label. It is described as a landmark in Over the Rhine's large and remarkably accomplished body of work, exploring some challenging new musical territory while featuring some of the duo's most compelling songs and performances to date. "It's a collection of songs that required some extra real estate," says Linford Detweiler.
