"Not sure whether you think this is a compliment (I hope you do) but I really do think you guys sound like a 21st century version of Simon & Garfunkel. Way to go!"
"Pure sunshine + joy + soul. A night listening to these two is always an amazing night!"
"The Wilhelm Brothers are similar to the sounds of Damien Rice but with an Americana influence rather than Irish. There is a certain folk aspect in Wilhelm's voice, guitar melodies and Ensslin's bass lines, but when Ensslin's beautiful cello melodies enter the mix, a unique fusion is created with a passion that is often found in classical pieces such as Bach's Cello Suite."
“The Wilhelm Brothers have that intangible thing..that sound..that makes the difference between a band being good, or being great.. It's hard to describe..a spark..but, we know it when we hear it.. ”
“Your music takes me back to a purer time, there's that centuries-old tradition of folk music and the way it's been adopted and adapted into popular culture over the generations; I'm hearing reflections of people like the Everly Brothers or Simon & Garfunkel - those haunting melodies and the awesome harmonies and the beautiful musical arrangements that complement the artistry of the performance [...] - you seem to manage to do that with a fresh approach and a new sound which really seems relevant for today.”
“Wow! We are sitting in Iron Horse Station listening to the Wilhelm Brothers. They are terrific!”
“You were amazing! Loved every minute of it! It was a nice chill rainy sunday, and the music was the icing on the cake!”
“We have been sending these "thank-you's" out for more than four years…it's tradition. And once in a while we have the privilege to address performers like the two of you that pretty much blew us away. You guys have something special and it was an honor to see and hear you perform. We look forward to the next time!”
“Those Wilhelm Brothers sure know how to cheer a girl up when she's feeling down. Thanks again for making me smile.”
“I got to hear you guys for the first time the other night @ Turntable... I was blown away! ur music & talent are So Great! when i left that night i felt like a new person... so relaxing mind, body, soul! Cant wait 2 see y'all play again!”
“Their music is joyful, soulful and embracing. Their ability to connect and involve the audience is incredible and leaves you with such a positive and personal experience. They make non-singers sing along! What a good fortune to have experienced their unique talent....a great evening. Hoping to see them again.”
