“…a musician, an artist, a poet who sings”
a haunting alto of suggestiveness and controlled force” are some of the press reactions to Elisabeth Lohninger’s musicianship and vocal prowess. With her new CD “Songs Of Love And Destruction” the Austrian vocalist, who resides in New York City, has unleashed a haunting, suspenseful and deeply satisfying ode to the brilliant and utterly devastating aspects of love. Her dark, slightly husky sound lends itself to moody and exciting interpretations, infusing songs by the Beatles, Joni Mitchell and K. D. Lang with personality and individualism. Her band, comprised of some of the best jazz players on the scene, supplies a playful, swinging backbone as well as sensitive nuance and groove.
