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 evokes vivid emotional landscapes. She is currently completing a new solo album of songs for voice and cello recorded at St. Peter's Church in Chelsea, NYC. Her recent album, A Bird Will Sing, was exquisitely produced by the legendary Anton Fier (Golden Palominos) and recorded with her band, Julian Maile, Rob Jost and Robert DiPietro. Serena has performed in Europe and the UK and throughout the US and Canada.
Growing up between The Midwest and Switzerland, Serena walked along the Great Lakes (she found her cello wrapped in a brown blanket in a basement in northern Michigan) and over mountain passes (she comes from a long line of gown-wearing, horse-riding yodelers). She happily calls NYC home, where her Midwestern friendliness and Swiss persistence come in handy. Serena has performed at seminal NYC venues such as Joe’s Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room, Barbès, Pete’s Candy Store, Tonic, and The Kitchen. She has collaborated with poet Dan Machlin (Immanent Audio, Ugly Duckling Presse), and numerous dancers, including Douglas Dunn and Kathryn Sanders (Wally Cardona). She led a 50-cello performance on Governor's Island with co-composer/cellist Matthew Robinson in July 2015, and has sang, played and recorded with many musicians and composers. Serena was an original member of Rasputina, the well-corseted cello group.
