Kyle Featherstone (born June 27, 1991), known professionally as Feather, is an American electronic dance music producer and vocalist.[1]

Early life[edit]

Kyle Featherstone was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and grew up in Hudson, Wisconsin.[2] Growing up he always loved music and when he was in 3rd grade he started playing the piano. He began singing in his high school choir after auditioning for the musical at his school. After graduating from Hudson High School, he moved to Madison, Wisconsin where he went to the University of Wisconsin Madison.[3] Featherstone began playing in bands inspired by Coldplay, Jack's Mannequin, and Augustana when he was a sophomore in college. In 2016 left his touring band & moved back to Minneapolis, where he started working on producing electronic music.[4]

Career[edit]

Featherstone started releasing remixes while working on his own original music. In June of 2018, he released his first remix for Lauv's song "I Like Me Better" through the YouTube channel Proximity.[5] Ben Allen of ElectroJams reviewed the track saying "In a style reminiscent of an Odesza/Autograf lovechild, Feather infuses the year-old Lauv track with a wash of synths, accented by beefed-up percussion, culminating in cinematic builds and drops".[6]

After experiencing success with his first release, Feather released a remix for Timeflies song "Little Bit" on August 10, 2018.[7] One week later, a remix of Loote's song "Wish I Never Met You" was released, which was released through Island Records.[8]

Featherstone uses BitWig Studio, Logic Pro, and Ableton to produce his music.
