SINGER

Nissim Black

It is 2018 and jewish music’s rising star is inarguably the very regal Nissim Black.  Nissim will inspire you with his journey to yiddishkeit while his powerful music will both move you spiritually and force you to get up out of your seat and DANCE.  A presence and a performer like none other, Nissim has risen to the top of the Jewish music charts with lightning fast speed.

 
Nissim is a Seattle based recording artist/producer, who made his first impression nationally in 2008 as D.Blackwith the song “God Like”. While his earlier recordings were filled with tales of guns, drugs and violence, it was in 2009, with the release of “Ali’ Yah” that he quickly grabbed eardrums.  As D.Black he teetered on the verge of becoming a household name in the underground, but something was missing, and the man who would become Nissim, found himself in the midst of a spiritual crisis.
 
After a two year hiatus and converting to Orthodox Judaism, Nissim dropped his former moniker, and adopted a new name, he began a new journey, and in his own words, “To make music that inspires and elevates this world, to the world of spirituality and divine purpose.” He appeared on the Shtar song "Rabbit Hole" released in 2012. In 2013, he released  Miracle Music, followed by his debut album, self-titled Nissim. In March 2017, he released his second album Lemala  making waves once again, a presence like none other, in the Jewish music world.
