About Nefesh Mountain:
The multi award winning singer, songwriter and author Doni Zasloff is a beloved presence on stage throughout the country. Her unique backgrounds in singing, musical theatre, and Judaism make her one of the most in demand and unique artists today, and she brings these multifaceted talents directly to Nefesh Mountain. Also known as Mama Doni, she produced 8 children’s albums relating to Jewish themes and holidays with a playful funky twist. Multi-Instrumentalist Eric Lindberg brings his jazz and classical background to the acoustic forms of bluegrass and old-time music. After graduating with honors from Mason Gross School of The Arts with a degree in jazz performance, he toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. After forming together the band Nefesh Mountain, Lindberg and Zasloff have become known widely in the Jewish and Bluegrass worlds today. Nefesh Mountain was featured in Billboard Magazine, and their song "The Narrow Bridge" was voted Top Ten Country Songs of the Week on Rolling Stone.
