The ensemble started out interpreting, covering and arranging famous Rock-, Pop-, and Soulmusic with 4 female voices and soon began to each write their own songs, which are as different as the groups 4 individuals. After numerous concerts and gigs, the band decided to go to the studio and produce their first album "ONE".

Wo'Xang : One    onsale

Review: Ines, Nicole, Sylvia and Marina are members of the fast-rising new Austrian a cappella quartet WO'xang, and One is, appropriately enough, their first release. These talented, beautiful young women have a fresh, avant-garde sound with elements of Folk, Jazz, Pop, and Choral with many original arrangements, compositions and lyrics that catch and hold our attention. Favorites are "Sweet Temptation," with lyrics by Nicole added to a Venezuelan traditional melody (with some non-vocal percussion); "Sunday," "I don't know" and "Just for Yourself," with music and lyrics by Marina, the powerful "Black Dog" and "Tickles" by Nicole Weiser; and "Supervibe" with music and lyrics by Sylvia. Strong covers of Judie Tzuke's "For You," Tori Amos' "Leather," Joni Mitchell's "Shadows and Light" and George Michaels' "Father Figure" mesh perfectly with the original material. The final cut, "Kyrie," joins the music of Marina with Nicole's lyrics, and is guitar accompanied. All songs are in English. Beautiful voices that stand alone and harmonize effortlessly, wonderful, provocative lyrics-"One" impresses and moves us in so many ways-one of the best debut CDs of the year!

Songlist: Sweet Temptation, Sunday, For You, Black Dog, Supervibe, Leather, Tickles, I Don't Know, Shadows and Light, Just for Yourself, Father Figure, Kyrie
