She was a founding member, guitarist, and lead vocalist of the indie rock group The Like.[1]

Following the hiatus of the Like in 2011, Berg formed the band Jjamz along with James Valentine (Maroon 5), Jason Boesel (Bright Eyes/Rilo Kiley), Alex Greenwald (Phantom Planet), and Michael Runion.[2] Their debut album, Suicide Pact, was released on July 10, 2012, via Dangerbird Records.[3] Berg is friends with Katy Perry, who publicly expressed admiration for Berg's work in Jjamz.[4]

Music critic Dan Cairns described her voice as "Björk meets Harriet Wheeler".[5]
