Anthea Feaver - Press Kit

BIO

Anthea Feaver is a Wolfe Island-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Knitting together the old and new, Anthea’s original music combines the syncopated rhythms and repetitive melodic appeal of her favourite folk traditions with impressionistic lyrics that meditate on family, love, loss, and the passage of time. Alongside these enduring themes, Anthea’s songs reflect on social issues, neurodiversity, and environmentalism. From icicles falling on heads to long-lost family letters, her songs shift deftly between bleakness and hope.

 

Anthea’s signature finger-picking is inspired by Piedmont blues players such as Elizabeth Cotten and Etta Baker. Her original songs contain echoes of some of her favourite songwriters—Big Thief, The Mountain Goats, Joni Mitchell, and John Prine. Upon falling in love with trad folk, Anthea took up the banjo and the fiddle, studying under Teilhard Frost and at Live Oak Fiddle Camp. With 20 years of experience on the guitar, Anthea’s repertoire spans many styles—if you ask nicely, she may even play a jazz chord or two. 


Anthea’s EP Play It Back (2021) has received acclaim from campus and community radio stations in North America.
