New York singer, songwriter and cellist Serena Jost recently released her debut solo album titled "Up To The Sky." It was recorded and the historic St. Peter's Church in Chelsea, NY over the course of only two days. The new 10-song release begins with the steady, flowing vibe from the cello during "Window" as Jost's voice only needs that one instrument to support it. You can feel the emotion in her performances of "The Cut" and "Happiness," while her version of "Lullaby" will simply put your mind at ease. She finishes up her new album with the beautiful serenade of "Silver Star" and "Red Door." To find out more about Serena Jost and her latest release "Up To The Sky," please visit serenamusic.com.
Los Angeles pop/soul pioneers, God's Children will finally get some of the recognition they deserve in the newly release compilation "Music Is The Answer: The Complete Collection." It features 14-tracks that are taken from the band's 1971 long lost recording sessions. Beginning with the title song "Music Is The Answer," you are instantly transported back to the seventies when the lines of rock, pop, soul and R&B were being blurred. The keyboard-heavy, gospel feel of "It Don't Make No Difference" and the stellar vocals of Lydia Amescua in "If You Ever Go Away" will certainly remind you of this magical period in music. Of the album's 14 songs, eight of them have never been previously release and the other six are taken from the band's long out-of-print 45's.

From the street of New York/New Jersey comes the debut album from the "electropunk" duo The Wilderness. Their new album titled "Sorry About Tomorrow" contains 10-tracks inspired by the avant-garde sound of the art/pop music scene in the seventies and early-eighties. They begin their new release with the Velvet Underground-sounding "Full Time Woman" and the more experimental, dance hall piece ""Brdthrwr." The rhythm and beats become bigger on the cosmic tones of "P.O.N.K" and in the darker tones of "Well." The Wilderness wrap up their new album with the more pop-oriented "Drop Dead" and the R&B flavor of "D.O.G."
