Zach Mayer brings people together through the power of nigunim, spiritual wordless melodies, rooted in Jewish tradition. Zach channels his family lineage of the four generations of cantors before him, as he helps communities around the country find their own joyous voices in song.
A singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and teacher, Mayer has over 35 million hits on YouTube for his “Subway Sax Battle.”
“Zach Mayer is a wonderful, embracing, enthusiastic musician and a real mensch. He brings knowledge, passion and warmth to his teaching.” - Frank London, Klezmatics
“Zachary is one of the top Jewish instrumentalists and singers of his generation. He is also a high-level pianist, saxophonist, arranger, composer and improviser who has already contributed wonderful original nigunim to the contemporary canon. His warm personality and compelling spiritual presence have enabled him to rise to the top as a leading figure in the contemporary resurgence of Jewish music”. -Dr. Hankus Netsky, Chair of Contemporary Improvisation at the New England Conservatory
Zach Mayer has performed with John Zorn, Frank London, Michael Alpert, Joey Weisenberg, and Bobby McFerrin. He performs internationally with Zion80, a 10-piece Jewish Afrobeat band inspired by the music of Shlomo Carlebach. His folk sextet, Night Tree, has toured internationally and has released two albums produced by Seamus Egan of SOLAS.
