Steel Blossoms

Discovering the music of Americana duo, Steel Blossoms, is a lot like finding yourself at a party with trusted friends … the kind who know all your secrets, share great memories and funny stories, poke fun at your foibles … and their own.

Steel Blossoms is the musical collaboration of Sara Zebley and Hayley Prosser, artists (and former elementary school teachers) who met by chance at a festival in their home state of Pennsylvania, where each was performing with separate groups. They recognized an instant chemistry and a shared perspective; an appreciation for life’s moments, ironies and quirky little truths.

The two began to write together, while also growing more involved in the music scene in and around Pittsburgh. Sara and Hayley made their way to Nashville and Steel Blossoms quickly bloomed as regulars at Music City honkytonks, and as house concert favorites. Soon, the duo began playing top flight clubs, concert venues and festivals across the US, sharing the stage with artists including Rhonda Vincent, Tracey Lawrence and Collin Raye.

Sara and Hayley write and perform relatable songs about real life and real challenges, about people they’ve met and experiences they’ve endured, all with a refreshing sense of humor, optimism and occasional, satisfying sarcasm. While cleverly turning a phrase and weaving a tale, the duo’s appeal is punctuated by musicianship and skilled harmonies.

Relationship building comes naturally to Sara and Hayley, and as Steel Blossoms, the two have traveled the country, like the troubadour days of decades past, making fans one venue, one house show at a time. Onstage and off, they engage their fans as friends, and maintain those relationships long after the equipment is loaded into the van. Their fans are fervent, following the duo to shows, and providing support with travel, lodging, recording costs and more.

A debut EP, Year Number One, was released in 2015, followed by a full-length album, Country Enough, one year later. Steel Blossoms caught the ear of multi-award-winning songwriter, Jerry Salley, who had recently become the Creative and A&R Director of Nashville’s newest Americana label, Billy Jam Records. In early 2019, Steel Blossoms became the first act signed to the emerging label.

A self-titled album released in Spring of 2019 on Billy Jam Records, a new page in the Steel Blossoms’ story, one that continues to unfold with inspiration, creativity, and some great big dreams.

Nefesh Mountain

Nefesh Mountain is the place where American Bluegrass and Old-time music meet with Jewish Heritage and tradition. Band leaders, genre-pioneers, and husband and wife Doni Zasloff and Eric Lindberg are the heart of this eclectic offering, and share their love for American music, their own cultural heritage, and each other with audiences throughout the world. The result of this unexpected and beautiful mix is staggering; and while complete with the kind of adept string virtuosity and through composed arrangements one would hope for from a newgrass band with influences from Bluegrass, Old-Time, Celtic, and Jazz, they also play and sing songs of the heart creating music with a sense of diversity, oneness, and purpose for our world today.

Their newest and most adventurous recording to date called “Beneath The Open Sky” was a tour de force for the band, featuring friends and bluegrass luminaries Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tony Trischka And David Grier, along with their own band members Alan Grubner and Tim Kiah. The album’s 11 songs collectively weave together a groundbreaking and beautiful patchwork of new American music, being called “refreshingly eclectic” by Rolling Stone, and “One of the finest, wholly bluegrass records one will hear in not only 2018 but as a touchstone moving forward” by No Depression magazine.

Currently the Nefesh Mountain touring band/quintet plays over 150 dates worldwide with performances all throughout the US, Canada, Israel, England, and Australia. Their mission whether at a concert hall, festival, workshop, school, camp, or synagogue, is to spread the joy and magic of American roots music and help to champion and reinforce the powerful messages of diversity, wholeness, and harmony for our ever changing times.

“Refreshingly eclectic” - Rolling Stone

“The sound is crisp, clear, magical, an instant favorite, the type of record that cleanses the dirt underneath, in between, and unforeseen, the album is perfection” - No Depression
