I am interested in collaborative work.


Tzipporah (She/They) is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and educator with over 8 years of performing and teaching experience. She graduated from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities with a dual major in classical guitar performance and global studies with an emphasis in Middle Eastern history and politics in 2015. They have since become a regular performer in the Twin cities folk and Jewish music scenes. Tzipporah has been involved with multiple organizations focused on uplifting and empowering people through music such as Hopewell Music Cooperative North and She Rock She Rock. In 2019 her artistry propelled her to the semi-final round of Sun and Sky Entertainment's "Celebration of Music" competition and talent search (back then they had not yet reclaimed their Hebrew name). She released her first EP, "Ain't No Power" under her Hebrew name in 2020 shortly before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been described as "the honest sound of rebellion with raw energy combined with powerful lyrics... a powerful ethnic folk voice speaking to us is on full display - and quite lovely." Their first full length album, "Tales of the Diaspora," was released in 2023 and was described by Ellen "Mother Banjo" Stanley of the KFAI Radio show Womenfolk as "a moving, powerful exploration of their Jewish roots. It has been a favorite on Womenfolk!" Tzipporah believes in the healing power of music and its ability to foster positive change on scales both large and small. She currently teaches guitar and ukulele at Sarah Jane's Music School in the Northeast Minneapolis area.
