“Lohninger shapes an adventurous but accessible session that ideally showcases her voice. Dark and dense as blackberries yet lustrous as pearls, it is a stunning instrument that deserves smart, sympathetic support.” 
– Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times

“Elisabeth Lohninger is a powerful performer and a highly-skilled improviser and composer.” 
New York Times

“Austrian-American Elisabeth Lohninger is emerging as a major creative force in jazz vocals. …She is as ready to perform an original composition as a time-honored standard, tossing both off with the same ease Goethe did verse. Her skill as a composer ranks among the best currently recording.” 
– C. Michael Bailey, All about Jazz

“…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.
