Intended Immigration is a musical project known for its ability to cross borders, decades and genres while blending modern electronica with influences from across the world.
The creative force behind Intended Immigration is Swiss-born musician and producer Thomas Feurer, who has proudly contributed to neo-retro remixes on albums by his all-time heroes Herb Alpert and Quincy Jones.
Thomas is also an accomplished saxophonist and highlights of his performance career include live shows and/or recordings with Joss Stone, Jessica Simpson, Willie Nelson, The Tempations and many more. Fun fact: Thomas happened to be in the band that Stevie Wonder hired for his daughter’s wedding and got to play “Aren’t They Lovely” [sic] with the man himself.
Thomas honed his majors and minors at the American School of Modern Music in Paris and the Berklee College of Music in Boston, studied law at the University of Zurich, Switzerland and received a Certificate in Intellectual Property Law from New York University.
He currently lives in the New York metropolitan area and releases music with several projects on his own label Wooden Hat Records. He is fluent in English, German, French and Schwiizerduetsch, and has been rumored to yodel when enjoying fondue.
Music by Intended Immigration has appeared on compilations in Europe and Japan; in U.S. TV shows including American Woman (with Alicia Silverstone), The Newsroom (HBO), Black Box (ABC), Ugly Betty (ABC), Better Off Ted (ABC), Love Bites (NBC); in the film Every Day (with Helen Hunt and Liev Schreiber); and in advertisements by Suave, Chobani and Macy’s.
