Janet Feder is a Denver, Colorado based composer and guitarist. She is a classically trained guitar player best known for her work in the prepared guitar genre. A genius guitar player with a lyrical heart, an instrumentalist with a compelling voice and a truly original offering, Janet Feder makes the seemingly disparate naturally coexist as she journeys ever more deeply into an aesthetic ideal all her own. She cut her baby teeth on folk and rock guitar then polished them with a passion for classical playing. In the early 1990’s Janet broke bad and began preparing her instruments; it’s on the baritone guitar where she most clearly recognized the sound of her own voice. Janet’s sound is derived from the achievements of folk, jazz, pop, minimalism, classical, and the avant garde – and is simultaneously unmoored from the trappings of any of them.
