PSA: this is not your typical cello playing. Serena Jost is soon to release her album, Up To The Sky, a collection of vocal/cello songs, recorded in Chelsea, NYC’s St. Peter’s Church. Up To The Sky, released via Second Kiss, includes covers as well as original songs by Jost, all utilizing her signature vocals and cello playing.
Up To The Sky follows Jost’s previous records that she released with her band (Julian Maile, Rob Jost and Robert DiPietro), A Bird Will Sing and Closer Than Far. Jost will celebrate her album release with a performance on April 19th at St. Peter’s. Appearing on Up To The Sky is a cover of “Happiness” by Molly Drake. Jost’s powerful and ethereal vocals definitely do the song justice. While just a small taste of what is to come, “Happiness” encompasses the precise skill that Serena Jost possesses. This is not a record you’ll want to miss.
