In a June 2017 article, Billboard selected Felder as one of the seven music supervisors to watch.  And that should not come as any surprise with her varied repertoire of work on several hit series including Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘The OA’  ; and Showtime?s ‘Ray Donovan’ ; FX ‘Better Things’,  and the full seven season run of  ‘Californication’.
