GOLDFEATHER is a Brooklyn-based folk music band-meets contemporary classical ensemble, with a dash of cabaret for flavor. Led by native Minnesotan singer and violinist Sarah Goldfeather, Goldfeather's music explores unusual melodies garnished with three-part harmonies against a lush indie-folk-pop backdrop. Sarah and her fearless conservatory-trained five-piece band - Dylan McKinstry (mandolin/voice), Katie Martucci (guitar/voice), Nathan Koci (accordion/banjo/voice) and Pat Swoboda (double bass) - have collective musical backgrounds in almost every genre imaginable, including classical, contemporary classical, folk, bluegrass, avante-garde jazz, rock, musical theater, electronic music, and more, all of which factor into Goldfeather's unique sound. Sarah herself, in her concurrent life as a contemporary music violinist, was recently featured at TEDxMET at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and spent the fall touring with Courtney Love. The band, which was recently featured at the Ecstatic Music Festival in New York City and the Times Two Series in Boston, has a 2014 EP called Goldfeather (released under their previous moniker, Sarah Goldfeather) and will release their first full-length album, Patchwork Quilt, in 2016. Goldfeather is licensed by Finegold Music.
