"David Feder is one of the most exquisite and breathtaking guitarists of our time" Paco DeLucia meets Stevie Ray Vaughn (Watch the Video!) This is Hillbilly Flamenco. David (& Nyan's) music is sensually dazzling, with a rural, outdoorsy freedom that swings just where it should. (Time Out)

Biography

“Dave has a magic way of making you feel like an old friend with songs that are original and intimate.  He is a master guitarist who plays his own intricate Flamenco influences finger-style music with laid back island feel.” – NPR

Dave Feder has carved out a niche of his own, playing a signature blend of Flamenco-infused Folk music. His laid back style easily disguises the complexity of his blazingly deft finger picking. Three decades of island-living in the Florida Keys has influenced Feder’s breezy, approachable, and sophisticated music..  His musicianship incorporates miles of style, (savvy yet innocent, intelligent yet accessible) woven into a personal journey telling stories about life through the strings of his guitar.   Feder has been praised by NPR’s All Songs Considered, World Café Live, PBS Art Loft, NPR’s Folk & Acoustic Music, The Miami Herald and Time Out magazine among others.  Feder spent six weeks at the top of the Broadjam World Music Chart with his critically acclaimed album “Black Emerald” and has been featured on All My Children (ABC), Art Loft (PBS), the NBC Good Morning show, National Park Service Educational Videos, and Florida Everglades Documentaries. Feder is a founding member ICE — a 501C3—that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships for students pursuing arts, music and dance.

Lyrics

Right with the World

Written By: David Feder

I'm gonna be right with the world
I'm gonna be right with the world
I'm gonna be right with the world
I'm gonna be right with the world
I'm gonna tell you I love you,
Cause I feel like I must.
I'm gonna do what moves me to the light I can trust.
I'm gonna live in the spirit, and flow like the breeze.
And I'm keeping my heart open so that I can truly be
Right with the world.
I’m gonna be right with the world.
There’s no partially hydrogenated oil in my food.
No corporation’s bottom line prefabricates my mood.
I’m living in the spirit and I definitely will,
let no politician tell me whom or when that I should kill.
I’m gonna be right with the world.
I’m gonna be right with the world.

You hate them, and they hate you.
That’s just exactly what I aint never gonna do.
I’m gonna be right with the world.

We don’t teach our children the politics of greed.
They don’t get their education from watching the TV.
And they’ll never need some preacher man to tell them when to give.
We’re raising them on honesty and praying that they Live….
Right…. With the world.

So I'm gonna tell you I love you,
Cause I feel like I must.
And I'm gonna do what moves me to the light I can trust.
I'm gonna live in the spirit, and flow like the breeze.
And I'm keeping my heart open so that I can truly be
Right with the world.
I’m gonna be right with the world.
I’m gonna be right with the world.
Right!

The Reason Why

Written By: David Feder


The Reason Why

You tell me how you love me
I can’t imagine why
So hovering above me
Hoping this won’t be goodbye haven’t got a tear to cry
How time rearranged us
We take it day by day
Those who have come before us
Say that it can last forever
But they never found the way

Chorus:

Drink up all the sweet sweet water
I’m your master not your daughter
Willing give your life to me
Remember how it used to be
Sweet Osirus can you count the ones who loved you?

Reflection’s gone you’ll understand
I can only be your man
Lillith you can come out of the darkness.

They fly around in circles
And wait for something to die
You take em while they’re laughing
Still you fear the coming dawn
Changing what is right or wrong

Repeat Chorus:

Now I stand before sunrise
Drink the night in through my eyes
Nothing’s supposed to live forever
Now I know the reason why.

Dogma Condom

Written By: David Feder

DOGMA CONDOM
Gonna walk out in my land
Gonna sing my little song
Gonna put my dogma condom on so I can get along
Gonna get some big old cotton balls
And stuff em in my ears
That Red Neck paranoia’s not the tune I want to hear (right now)
Chorus:
And I’m proud to be an original
Cause I know my mind is free
And I won’t forget the men who lied and tried to take that right from me
We got no Child left behind, Gonna send em all off to the war.
We don’t need no Education…on that Killin floor..

Been walkin past them History books Ignored by boys and Girls
Gonna Put my Dogma Condom on and go out and Love The World!
Chorus…
Gonna Blow up that old TV set and walk right out the door
And put my Dogma Condom on
I won’t take that Shit no more…..

Discography

Black Emerald is "Hillbilly Flamenco" in its purest form. Its captivating and intoxicating rhythms transport you to the Islands of romance and reverie. Born in the volcanic depths of the Azores and bred with the American mountain spirit, this music is truly the meeting of worlds. More than fusion, more than a marriage of styles, Black Emerald is a glimpse of the living dance of life. Instrumentation is Acoustic "Hillbilly Flamenco" guitar with fiddle, Flute, flugalhorn and a fantastic Latin rhythm section. This is the "Hillbilly Flamenco" CD we have been promising. (Broadjam #1 World Music, XM Radio, NPR,...)

"Waiting For Sara", Released in 1997, is a firey and beautifully romantic Latin/Jazz guitar CD. It's the music you want playing when she walks through the door. It's the scent in the air, on the beach when she first kisses you. It's the sound track of romance. These alluring gut string melodies will find thier way into your heart. Featuring players from Spain, Argentina, Venezuela and the U.S.A.,"Sara" is a wonderful listening pleasure!

The Reason Why (Funk and Blues with the Saltwater Blues Band) "If you don't want to hit the dance floor, something's wrong!" Someone once said that writing about music is comparable to dancing about architecture. There's no way to convey through the written word just how good the performances on "The Reason Why" are; I can only suggest that you get the CD and find out for your self. If you like cool jazz, hot blues, rock, swing, Michael Franks, Stevie Ray, or Steely Dan, you will love this CD. When you get the disc, turn off the phone and TV, turn the lights down low, pour yourself a glass of fine wine or other suitable spirits, perhaps light up a cigar, sit back, pop in the CD, and get ready for some great music. "The Reason Why" ...? Well... Why Not?

This Time in Between (The Ultimate Island Spa Mix) "This Beautiful, all acoustic CD was inspired and co-produced by working therapists and aestiticians for use at The Blu Bamboo, an exclusive spa in the Florida Keys. This is the best spa and massage music out there. This is Not New Age machine generated Music. It is all acoustic guitar, flute and percussion played by real musicians with no computerized anything. This is organic music, tailored for that perfect integrated relaxing experience.
