Hello & Welcome!


A lot has happened, to say the least, since my “just returned from Paris” post a few months ago. I hope you’re all right; here in Rochester, so far so good. I’m staying at home, communing with my cat Albert, and writing lyrics.

I was going to be recording the first half of my new album, My Own Particular Life, at the end of April. That’s on hold for now, but the project does have a cover! The composers are my co-producer Eddie Arkin, and my other treasured co-writers Russell Ferrante, Shelly Berg, and Dave Grusin

The musical I've been working on with composer Nan Schwartz in LA and show creator Kat de Blois, in Paris, is still in progress.

Best wishes for all of us to get through this challenging time, and find much to be grateful for on the other side of it (as well as in the midst of it).


Latest Album by Lorraine Feather

Math Camp

  • - DownBeat

    At this point in her career, Feather could find a way to spin the phonebook into a collection of engaging and catchy tunes.

  • - JazzTimes

    Feather’s latest is another wellspring of cleverness that bounces between sweet, sardonic, poignant and mirthful ... think of it as an intellectual jazz lab dedicated to the dissection of the human condition.

  • – allaboutjazz.com
    Math Camp contains the most cleverly composed original songs since, well, Feather's last recording, Flirting with Disaster ... this is perfect music.


  • - Janet Coleman, Cat Radio Cafe

    I think she has marked new boundaries for herself as an artist and created a bigger, more dazzling musical ballpark for jazz and jazz song.

  • - Jazz Weekly

    Lorraine Feather has carved a niche not just for her jazz delivery but for unique and almost Tom Waits-like lyrics to moody and sepia toned songs. She mixes bop with eerie bohemia ... gets you into the corners of life on "In A Hot Minute" and "Some Kind of Einstein." Cerebral swing.

Lorraine Feather

Lorraine Feather was born in Manhattan. Her parents named her Billie Jane Lee Lorraine after godmother Billie Holiday, her mother Jane (formerly a big band singer), her mother’s ex-roommate Peggy Lee, and the song “Sweet Lorraine.” She is the daughter of the late jazz writer Leonard Feather.
