Nomi Teplow

Gifted with a voice of rare beauty, versatility and range, Israeli soul singer Nomi Teplow sings in a variety of styles ranging from opera to rock. Nomi is a dynamic performer who reviewers have called “inspirational”, “captivating”, “bubbling”, “extraordinary.”

"Nomi Teplow is a unique phenomenon on the Jewish music scene... When this soul singer gets up on stage and begins to sing, the audience is riveted with wonder for she sets a different standard, higher than anything else known to date."
-Roni Maimon, Besheva

Nomi Teplow was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and she completed both her Bachelors and Masters degrees at Columbia University (B.A. Barnard College). In 1990 Nomi decided to leave the life she knew, which included a successful career as a corporate banker, and fulfill her lifelong dream of making her home in Israel.

Nomi began her musical career singing opera, show tunes and popular music. A coloratura soprano, she gave recitals and concerts throughout Israel and performed as a soloist with many of Israel's symphony and chamber orchestras. Nomi participated in several Israel Festival productions and her performances have been aired on Israeli radio and television.

Nomi has worked with leading Israeli artists such as Yoni Rechter, Shlomo Gronich, Dudu Tassa and Roi Levy and she has collaborated with American artists such as Craig Taubman, Judy Ginsburgh and Neshama Carlebach.

Nomi writes and sings soul, pop and rock music with a contemporary Israeli/Jewish flavor. Several of Nomi's songs have been included in American Jewish compilation CDs (Celebrate Shabbat, Voices For Israel) and cantors worldwide sing her "Eshet Chayil" (Kumi Ori). Nomi's music has also been published in “Mizmor Shir,” a publication of Israel’s Ministry of Education. Nomi’s music is heard on Israeli and international radio stations and she performs her music throughout Israel, bringing uplifting messages of faith and hope during these difficult times

Nomi has released three CDs: "Kumi Ori", "My Brothers I Seek", featuring her Shir E-l Choir (not yet for sale in the US) and her third CD, "Like a Rushing Spring" (Kamaayan Hamitgaber). The recordings, produced by Moshe Wohl and Nomi Teplow, present a variety of musical styles and utilize the musical talent of some of Israel’s leading instrumentalists. Both of Nomi's solo CDs feature the vocals of “The Black Hebrew Gospel Singers”.

In addition to singing, Nomi is a choral conductor and voice teacher as well as a coach to choral conductors within the Ministry of Education. She is a popular lecturer at seminars for teachers and choral conductors and she gives vocal workshops and master classes throughout Israel.

"Listen to Nomi Teplow's performance...Do yourselves a favor and listen...In her music there is delicacy, tenderness, and attention to the inner voice, the one that always knows before we do."
-Einat Barzelai, Maariv NRG

"Nomi brings with her vast experience in classical music, jazz and vocal arrangement and, above all, a voice extraordinary for its quality and its abundance of color and nuance."
-Itai Indik, The Observer

"The energy in the hall was electric, the colors spinning around everyone but above all stood out the mighty voice of Teplow...with masive vitamins of smile, with a storm-wind spirit and lots of faith, she sings from the heart, and vibrates hidden veins."
-Dikla D. Gal-Ed, Nashim (Women) Magazine

Nomi is very polished…The energy on stage at the Duhal Amphitheatre…[southern Tel Aviv] can light up the entire Ramat Gan [city north of Tel Aviv]."
-Shai Lahav, Maariv, Weekend Magazine

"I was very impressed with her voice, her musicianship and her captivating personality. "
-Yoni Rechter
