Something Like My Own

Purchase "Cafe Society":


—Bill Falconer, Coda

What sets Feather apart is the use of her imagination to stimulate your own and to draw you into the heart of an emotion, whether joy or melancholy. In short, it’s like listening to a story on the radio. With a Feather lyric, you don’t just hear, you somehow see! … I just can’t wait till her next release.

—Phil Elwood, Jazz West

[Her CDs] represent the most imaginative, impeccably composed and sung vocal jazz since the breakout of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross in the late 1950s/early 1960s era.
