As a singer-songwriter, Nir has led the alternative rock/pop bands Noria and Bell Always, with whom he has recorded three studio albums and played hundreds of shows.
His songs were selected four times for Song of The Week on Israeli national radio 88fm.
Tsfaty currently records his fourth album, planned to be released mid-late 2023. His upcoming album is a collection of poetic pop songs with a cinematic appeal and incorporates original string quartet arrangements in the centre of his work.
Nir's new album follows a concert series called About Whales, in collaboration with Invictus Quartet. Together, the five musicians have played several sold-out headline shows in Melbourne, including the premiere night at Melbourne Recital Centre.
Nir's musical skills, versatility and broad knowledge allow him to compose in different genres and styles while maintaining an authentic, original voice.
His music is warm and dynamically broad - from whispery solo instrumentals through chamber sound and up to symphonic emotional peaks. His production approach brings to each project polished compositions with a hand-crafted quality.
Nir is also a dedicated educator with twelve years of experience teaching guitar, composition, songwriting and music theory. He has 3.5 years of experience as a classroom teacher and developer of unique musical courses.
