The band Die Höchste Eisenbahn started more as a project. First consisting of the singer-songwriter Francesco Wilking, who writes short stories as well as musical poetry, and Moritz Krämer, the two musicians Max Schröder and Felix Weigt joined the project in 2012. Three albums later, you can already say that it is no longer a project, but a German pop band that is unparalleled in the German-language music landscape. The way they tell stories through their music, creating a very personal connection, is special. Their lyrics are often about longing, loss and world-weariness. But at the same time, they are always searching for their own self. Last year Die höchste Eisenbahn recorded a three-song EP with three live versions of the songs Louise, Zieh mich an and Überall.
