Reviews & Premieres

Folk Radio UK Song Premier: Dance With Me (2019)

Houston Music Review of SWRFA 2018 Records (2018) 

"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."

Divide & Conquer: Marigolds (2017)

"Feder manages to fit a novel worth of lyrics into a four-minute song without it sounding crowded or pretentious. In that way, her songs reminded me of Paul Simon which is impressive, to say the least."

Beautiful Songwriting Vol.6/Compilation Record Review (2017)

"I found myself gravitating increasingly towards the second half of the compilation, and I credit that mainly to Kora Feder‘s Written In Change, which closes Beautiful Songwriting Vol.6. 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."

Compilation Record by A Lonely Ghost Burning, UK (2017)

"Earnestly melancholic, Marigolds plays like a melodic salutation to all that is neglected and forgotten by a world at the mercy of Father Time; the carefully conceived work of a thoroughly engaging and exceptionally capable storyteller."
