After two years spent wielding a backpack and guitar through Asia and Europe for her Global Studies degree, Kora Feder moved back to the U.S.
with a uniquely keen eye for capturing the details and feelings of a place and time. She brings listeners from the colorful, poverty-stricken streets of Varanasi, India to the mountains and refugee camps of Northern Thailand; the characters of Italian train stations to 1000-year-old homes in Southwestern China.
Since her return to the States in 2017, Kora has continued to capture snippets of the world around her. “We keep living in America in these automatic times,” she pleads with the audience in her response to American gun violence. NPR’s All Songs Considered called it “an emotional weight that can stop you in your tracks, even long after the song has finished.”
Spring of 2019 brought the release of her first full length album, In Sevens, produced by Rich Brotherton in Austin, TX. The album received critical acclaim, drawing comparisons to Pete Seeger (Roots Music Report) and Iris Dement (Americana Highways, Minor 7th). In Sevens spent four months on US Folk Radio charts with one song, a piece Kora wrote in high school about lack-of-romance and the Sound of Music, surpassing half a million streams on Spotify.
Although originally from Northern California where she was (and occasionally still is) a touring member of her mother (Rita Hosking)’s country folk band, Feder is loosely based on the East Coast these days.
