Neha CD Release

A gifted singer, composer & pianist, Neha’s style can be characterized as a smorgasbord of musical personalities.

Adam Zwig

Acclaimed for his insightful folk-pop songs and dynamic performances throughout the U.S. and around the globe, the multi-talented performer’s groundbreaking work as a psychotherapist goes hand in hand with, and is an extension of, his deep musical aesthetic.

Because his concerts and workshops convey the very same messages, the Portland, Oregon based Zwig – who has been favorable compared throughout his career to Bob Dylan and Neil Young – was once dubbed by Seattle Musician as a “rock and roll guru” and “professor of rockology.”
