International pop singer-songwriter ViennaCC is proud to rep his hometown of Vienna, Austria. Known as the theater and music capital of the world, Vienna offers its storied lineage of creativity to all who wander its historic streets. Since his youth, Heinz Riemer—ViennaCC’s real name—studied the likes of Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart on piano while walking in their footsteps around town. Awakening to the sounds of modern pop he found his true heart’s home. His musical roots are Britpop and poets like Bob Dylan . He then spent years cutting his teeth with pop, rock, punk, and dancehall bands in Vienna’s illustrious nightlife scene. Now, with refined skills and an attuned pop songwriting sensibility, he’s brought his unique and fearless musicality to audiences worldwide.
