Brianna is the Resident Musician at Moksha Yoga Uptown, where she plays chill acoustic arrangements of tunes ranging from Bon Iver to Motown, Joni Mitchell to Justin Bieber, and everything in between. She loves working in collaboration with different instructors and crafting set-lists to achieve a specific vibe for the class. Brianna started playing music at age 13 after she woke up from a dream where she’d been strumming a guitar. Since then, she’s taught herself guitar. banjo, ukulele, mandolin, bass, and harmonica. Brianna has experienced the power of music to influence growth, healing, and even just turn around an otherwise crummy day; she aims to express those intentions through her playing. Brianna has performed as an instrumentalist in a jazz big band, several orchestra pits for musicals, and even a klezmer combo. As a singer and instrumentalist, Brianna has performed as part of indie rock band The Wave Theory (2012-2015), and now makes up one half of Oakwood, a fun guitar and ukulele duo, along with Nancy Silverman. More about that below.
Brianna also performs as part of Oakwood, an acoustic guitar and ukulele duo with Nancy Silverman.
Nancy Silverman and Brianna Goldberg are Oakwood — a delightful ukulele and guitar duo from Toronto that specializes in chill, fun, acoustic covers sung with close harmonies. Nancy and B went to high school together, but their musical collaboration kicked off in 2016 when they performed a wicked cover of “No Diggity” at a fundraising event for a yoga charity. They had a ton of fun singing together and coming up with a quirky acoustic arrangement — and the audience seemed to like it a lot, too; they’ve been jamming ever since. Oakwood has sold out performances of their fun interpretations of Fleetwood Mac‘s hit album, Rumours, and Alanis Morissette‘s Jagged Little Pill. They are always dreaming up new projects, and can’t wait to tell you about what’s next.
