Serena Jost: Petals and Thorns
Serena's return to Pangea tonight marks the launch of a new 2020 studio recording with her stellar band ~ featuring Julian Maile, guitar (Losers Lounge, Steely Dance), Rob Jost, bass (Dear Evan Hansen, Imogen Heap) and Robert DiPietro, drums (Norah Jones, Alex Cuba). Expect to hear songs of spirit, poetic invocations and transformations and a cover or two!
Serena Jost writes and performs songs that are at turns seductive, edgy, affecting, and otherworldly. A dynamic singer and multi-instrumentalist with a hauntingly beautiful voice, she is a unique performer whose music evokes vivid emotional landscapes. Her latest album, Up To The Sky , solo voice and cello, was released in 2018 to critical acclaim. Her previous album, A Bird Will Sing, was produced by the legendary Anton Fier (Golden Palominos) and recorded with her band. Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright) produced her debut, Closer Than Far.
"Serena 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
"Imagine mixing the sound of Mary Hopkin with the haunting sound of Nico, and you might begin to have some idea what the overall vibe is like." Baby Sue
"the Elizabeth Barrett Browning of avant-classical folk" Stereo Ember Magazine
"It was as if she stepped off a cliff into the musical abyss and lived to tell" WUSB-FM Finn Miller
"Jost gets props for her cello work, but shes also a brilliant singer at Joe's Pub, she and her full band soared and occasionally roared through the songs on her sensationally good new album A Bird Will Sing." New York Music Daily

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it "a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
