LOHNINGER & FISCHBACHER: SOUL GARDEN
Elisabeth Lohninger and Walter Fischbacher step out again as a duo, a suitcase filled with a wide variety of musical influences and revelations in tow. This is the backdrop for an atmospheric, intimate and colorful arc that tells the story of two people who went out into the world to find themselves and each other. Poetry, passion and groove.

In an intimate set of ballads vocalist Elisabeth Lohninger and pianist Walter Fischbacher travel with the listener through the peaks and valleys of love.

ELISABETH LOHNINGER BAND: CHRISTMAS IN JULY
"Vocalist Elisabeth Lohninger, in collaboration with guitarist Axel Fischbacher and pianist Walter Fischbacher, has chosen twelve songs from disparate corners of the world in nine different languages to create an international cornucopia of Christmas music. At times joyful, at times pensive but always hopeful, the set is firmly rooted in the jazz idiom." (press release)

TRIONADA
"Guitars and amplifiers be damned, TrioNada needs only a vibes player (Tim Collins), a renowned jazz singer (Elizabeth Lohninger), and one of the best tap dancers/body percussionists in the world (Max Pollak) to create their dizzyingly eclectic brand of music. Yoruba folk songs, Afro-Cuban rhythms, soul-jazz, and more make up the typical TrioNada mélange, all bound by Elizabeth's fearless, do-it-all vocals."

ELISABETH LOHNINGER QUARTET: BENEATH YOUR SURFACE
This CD titled "Beneath Your Surface" (Lofish Music, 2004) consists mostly of originals, with 2 German songs and my favorite Joni Mitchell tune. The CD features Walter Fischbacher on piano, Steve Doyle on bass and Hari Ganglberger on drums.

TERADOX: IF
teradox is an electronica collaboration with pianist Walter Fischbacher.
Remixing some tracks from Elisabeth Lohninger's pop cd "alien lovers" (under the alias tera) and writing a bunch of new hooky songs from scratch, Lohninger and Fischbacher went for the atmospheric, slightly melancholic, loungy sound, with loads of haunted vocals and luscious harmonic layers and walter's knock-out keyboard playing. oh, and there's even a remix of a 17th century christmas carol on it!

PERFECT ROOMMATES: AUSTRIAN LIEDGOOD
This duo recording with pianist Walter Fischbacher is a chamber-musiclike mix of Austrian folksongs and jazz. It was released on the Austrian SBF label in 1998 and led to some extensive touring in Europe.

TERA: "alien lovers"
"Tera - that's vocal soulrock, a gutsy, individual musical vibe, tons of groove and lyrics you can't quite let go of. Tera's voice, velvety, throaty and rangy at the same time, is terriffically enhanced by her savagely rocking band of outstanding musicians." (Press Release)
