Here two musicians did not necessarily search for each other, but definitely found each other. With their acoustic records "Adrift" (Wino) and "Raw Love Songs" (Conny Ochs) they were first labelmates. Then, during a joint tour, where one supported the other singer-songwriter, what belongs together grew together. The two troubadours recognized themselves as brothers in spirit and decided to make common cause. The result of this fruitful collaboration is now available in the form of the album "Heavy Kingdom", on which both are fully committed to the service of their respective songs. "Heavy Kingdom" is, of course, like the solo works of the protagonists, kept purely acoustic, which absolutely benefits the intensity of the songs. Robert Scott Weinrich alias Wino and his new congenial partner are equally involved in the songwriting of the individual pieces. But with "Highway Kind" they also used a track from Townes Van Zandt. Despite its acoustic instrumentation "Heavy Kingdom" is a huge record with ingenious songs from Americana, Folk and Rock.
