I’m a Russian-born singer-songwriter now living in Australia, Sunshine Coast  🐨
After experimenting with the sound for the last few years, I found my niche infusing alternative folk with Eastern-European influences. I like drawing on my Russian roots and experiences travelling the Western world, mixing them together.
💿 Since moving to Australia I released four albums and a few singles:
🔸 2011 - CD "Innessa"
🔸 2015 - CD "Folkloria"
🔸 2016 - CD "Love-n-Jazz"
🔸 2017 - DVD "Folk Horizons"
+ Singles “Apart”, “It’s Time”, “Golden Wreath”, “Shallop” etc
Innessa - gaudi - square2

“FANTASTIC! They were the perfect addition to the evening. Incredible performers and brought just the style and atmosphere I wanted for the evening”

Ellie (Director of the Scandinavian Film Festival)

Tina and I want to thank you so much for the beauty you shared with us on Friday. Your voice is superb and we were overwhelmed by your feeling and ability. Bravo. We wish you ongoing success.”

Ewen and Tina Thompson

“I love Innessa’s wonderful voice and her marvellous performances. Innessa thoughtfully crafts her performances to suit the occasion – from her visually demure, damsel-like singing at ‘Poet’s Ball’ evening soiree to her full-on energetic exaltation of the ‘Folk Horizons’ concert."

John Pedio


Depending on the budget I can perform solo (guitar/vocals/looper), duo (guitar/vocal + piano or lead guitar), trio (guitar/vocal + piano or lead guitar + percussion) or a full band.
