Detroit and New York. Gospel, Neo-Soul, and Jazz. Two vocalists at the top of their game join forces to move, to mesmerize, to raise up their audience. Accompanied by the Walter Fischbacher Trio, the quintet weaves a spell-binding fabric of resilience, inspiration and joy.
Austrian-American vocalist Elisabeth Lohninger has proven herself to be a powerful and elusive talent. Singing Austrian folk music with her sisters at a young age, Elisabeth has since performed at international jazz festivals and jazz clubs worldwide, releasing 12 albums under her name in the process. Her lyric alto voice is tailor-made to express the myriad of colors and shades of the Human condition. Recent albums such as "Soul Garden" and "Eleven Promises" showcase her adventurous spirit and deep love of song. Her music, though rooted in jazz, defies genre definition. Style serves song. Her songs run deep. And in Elisabeth's book, that's all that really matters.
