Abby Feferman is a singer/songwriter/musician from Chicago, Illinois. Her inimitable fusion of smooth pop, rock melodies, and powerful lyrics have captivated many listeners. 


Music has always been an important part of Abby's life; she began writing her own songs at age seven, and bought her first guitar at age twelve. As a child, Abby listened to and was inspired by pop and rock music from the 1960’s and 1970’s. A diversity of artists, including Carole King and The Beatles, helped ignite Abby’s passion for music and continue to inspire her today.


During her teenage and college years, Abby focused on honing her talents in songwriting, singing, and music. She studied guitar and voice one-on-one with local instructors, and then spent three years at the highly-regarded Old Town School of Folk Music. While at Old Town, Abby participated in many group performances with other music students and local musicians in a variety of genres, including The Music Explosion's "Little Bit 'O Soul" and Simon and Garfunkel's “59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy).”


In 2008, Abby built a recording studio in her home and started recording demos. It was in this studio that Abby recorded her first single, “Inside Out,” which was released in 2010. Fans described the song as "beautiful" and noted the "lovely depth" of Abby’s music. In 2012, Abby began recording at Chicago’s Mystery Street Recording Company. Her first official music project "Blur," recorded and co-produced with Mystery Street studio owner Joe Tessone, was greeted with excitement by fans. Listeners described Abby’s vocals as “inspiring” and “heartfelt,” with lyrics that “enthrall,” “engage,” and “keep [you] coming back for more.”


In 2015, Abby began working on recording new music with Gravity Studios in Chicago. Her new EP, "Dear One," was released in February 2016.


Abby's lyrics are musical poetry, and she finds her true expression through song. Abby's powerfully intimate music transports and inspires listeners with the joy of shared song.
