Kora Feder is a rising voice in the new generation of songwriters up to the task of confronting the times we live in. "The most talented new singer-songwriter I've heard in the past decade,” says Rich Warren, host of Chicago’s Folkstage. After a couple years wielding only a backpack and guitar in places like China, Thailand and India, Feder moved to New York City in 2017 with a Global Studies degree and a collection of songs written along the way. Spring of 2019 brought the release of her first full length album, In Sevens, produced by Rich Brotherton (of Robert Earl Keen, Mary Gauthier, etc.) in Austin, TX. In Sevens is receiving critical acclaim, with Americana Highways describing Feder as “much too young to have produced an album this mature and consistently terrific.” Although still in her early twenties, she has managed to gain international recognition for her craft: from winning second place in the International Songwriting Competition in 2019 (19,000 entries from 140 countries), to being featured for her writing at the Kerrville Folk Festival and Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2018. NPR’s Pilar Fitzgerald recently described one of Feder’s songs as carrying “an emotional weight that can stop you in your tracks, even long after the song has finished…”

"Folk singer/songwriter Kora Feder looks much too young to have produced an album this mature and consistently terrific." - Americana Highways

"A folk wanderer in her own right, musician and singer Kora Feder prompts the listener with gentle urgency of art’s continuing consequence on our lives." - B Sides & Badlands (2019)

“Feder’s voice is striking. It is soft and feminine yet strong and haunting…her songs reminded me of Paul Simon which is impressive, to say the least.” – Divide & Conquer (2017)

"Her songwriting is full of imagery and tightly crafted, showing an amazing command of the English language applied to her lyrics. Her timing and syntax add that extra emphasis to what she wants the listener to pay attention to. This young lady will go far." - Houston Music Review (2018)

“the carefully conceived work of a thoroughly engaging and exceptionally capable storyteller” - A Lonely Ghost Burning, UK (2017)

"Kora is wise beyond her years…everyone listening was blown away." - Bill Wagman, DJ & Concert Host

“For the winter wanderer, either walking to work, walking elsewhere or walking nowhere with purpose, Feder is running the inn which always has a light on – regardless of weather or season. ‘Come all you fickled fellows drink your sorrow away tonight’ she sings, her voice dancing with all the sincerity and guile of the sober scholar.” – Craig Reviews Music (2017)
