Nir Felder

Called “the next big jazz guitarist” by NPR, Nir Felder is a new voice in instrumental music. Equally adept across a wide range of genres, inspired by icons from John Coltrane to voodoo chile Jimi Hendrix, Felder has forged a unique and highly recognizable sound at a young age and quickly become one of New York City’s most highly sought after musicians as both a solo artist and as a sideman. He has performed with, among others, Chaka Khan, Diana Krall, John Mayer, Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lyne Carrington (with whom he recorded the Grammy-winning “Money Jungle”), Vijay Iyer, Jack DeJohnette, Meshell Ndegeocello, the New York City Opera, Dianne Reeves, Joe Lovano, Snarky Puppy, Bobby McFerrin and Lizz Wright, at venues including Radio City Music Hall and the Village Vanguard and on major national televised programs including the NBC Christmas Special. He is also a member of the new co-lead all-star band Band of Other Brothers (with Jeff Coffin, Jeff Babko, Will Lee and Keith Carlock). Seeking a more personal creative outlet, Felder first formed his own group in 2010, performing shows throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia. Felder’s critically acclaimed debut “Golden Age” (Sony/OKeh) has been called “absolutely beautiful” by The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, “lyrical and lofty” by The New York Times, “mesmerizing” by The Boston Globe, “a melodic triumph” and “mind-boggling” by All About Jazz. “If the hope, thought, depth and heart displayed on this recording are any indication, Felder sees his own golden age happening right now – and I wholeheartedly agree. A great recording.” – Downbeat Magazine Editor’s Pick. Felder’s next release is slated for 2017. The new album, tentatively titled “Interregnum”, seeks to build on the direction established with “Golden Age” – taking jazz music in a new direction for the 21st century.
