After two years spent wielding a backpack and guitar across Asia, Kora Feder (Feder rhymes with Peter) returned to the U.S. in 2017 with a Global Studies degree and a collection of songs written along the way. A self proclaimed "songwriter and concerned citizen," she has already gained international recognition for her craft (International Songwriting Competition, Kerrville New Folk, Telluride Troubadour, etc.). "The most talented new singer-songwriter I've heard in the past decade,” says Rich Warren, host of Chicago’s acclaimed Folkstage.
Kora's 2019 debut full length record 'In Sevens' spent four months on US Folk Radio Charts, with one track reaching over half a million streams on Spotify. NPR described a performance of a song off the new record as carrying "an emotional weight that can stop you in your tracks, even long after the song is finished.”
Although originally from Northern California where she was a touring member of her mom (Rita Hosking)'s folk-Americana band in high school, Kora lived in NYC for a couple years after college and moved to Philadelphia in 2019.
