Aaron Berg (stage name, Mountainwalker) is an American songwriter, performer, and recording artist based in Nashville USA with roots in New York City and South Carolina. His father has owned and operated the independent record store Horizon Records since 1975. Originally, a bassist, Berg attended the jazz conservatory at the New School University in Greenwich Village, New York City (studying with Larry Grenadier, Cecil Bridgewater, Reggie Workman, among others) before picking up a guitar and finding his voice as a songwriter and singer in his early twenties. In 2011 prior to moving to Nashville the following year, Berg became deeply engaged in the Southeastern Hip Hop scene, releasing a mixtape ( 'Public Works' ) and two self-produced albums ( 'American Rhapsody and 'Parlor Songs' ) with DJ/producer Coach K ( scheduled for re-mix/master, re-release July 2019 ). Also a published writer (Midnight Shining Sun) and a self-taught painter, Berg has toured nationally and released multiple studio albums.
