Serena Jost writes and performs songs that are at turns seductive, edgy, affecting, and otherworldly. A dynamic singer and cellist with a hauntingly beautiful voice, she is a unique performer whose music invokes vivid emotional landscapes. Tonight’s show celebrates the release of Serena’s new album, A Bird Will Sing. Exquisitely produced by the legendary Anton Fier (Golden Palominos) and recorded with her band, the album moves from spare art songs to whimsical ballads to cello-led rock tunes. Serena is joined by her band Julian Maile (guitar), Rob Jost (bass), and Robert DiPietro (drums) plus very special guests.
“seamlessly merging classical and pop melodies” -Lucidculture
"Jost writes gently eccentric songs and sings them in an elegant alto, often accompanying herself on cello, but it isn’t quite right to call her a singer-songwriter. The term art song—normally tied to 19th-century concert music—usefully characterizes Jost’s carefully arranged pieces and succinct lyrics, neither quite rock nor folk." -Time Out NY
