The solo project of Ines Kolleritsch is an ode to the art of their favourite singer-songwriters and composers, celebrating music in which they have found inspiration and the ongoing passion for composition throughout the past years, as well as performing original songs that exist between Pop, Soul and Singer-Songwriter-Jazz.
In this project drummer Julian Berann and vocalist and pianist Ines Kolleritsch are discovering new musical paths through their passion of composing together. A journey where the intimacy of singer songwriter music meets modern jazz, hip hop and R’n’B, where two musical minds are about to become one.
XING is an Austrian Singer-Songwriter with Chinese roots. Growing up in a Chinese household, as an adolescent she found it difficult to find representation. Her music explores themes such as 'culture clash', racism, body shaming and self-acceptance. She approaches these topics with searing honesty and authenticity, defining her own path in music and life. Her art is influenced and inspired by genres like Soul, R'n'B and Hip-Hop.
Since autumn 2022 Ines is happy to be firstly working with one of Austria's most fascinating singers, composers and multi-instrumentalists, Golnar Shahyar. Born and raised in Tehran, the Iranian/Canadian singer and multi-instrumentalist Golnar Shahyar (GolNar) settles in Vienna in 2008. She has become known as one of Europe’s most accomplished contemporary and improvised vocalists, as well as a composer and producer of her own music and collaborator in dance, Theater and Opera projects. She is a tireless advocate for social justice in all it forms and has succeeded in making this passion and integral part of her music.
