Innessa’s musical adventure started with a passion for writing poetry at the tender age of eight. Her poetry was filled with vivid observations of her surroundings at home in central Russia. At age nine, Innessa was invited to join the local choir and began her lifelong passion for music and performing. After several years of expanding her vocal talents Innessa was introduced to the guitar and by the age of 16 she had combined her poetry, signing and guitar skills and started performing her original compositions. The day she finished University, she packed her guitar and set off to explore the world, and the world of music. She has spent time living, studying music and performing on the Black Sea, Moscow, Egypt, Spain, The USA and has now happily settled in Australia. Innessa has performed at some of Australia’s largest festivals like the Canberra Multicultural Folk Festival and the Woodford Folk Festival. Her song Yasen became a finalist in Queensland Music Awards 2017.
