Up To The Sky
"it’s nothing but cello and voice and those ecclesiastic acoustics – one could be persuaded that the church was designed with the eerily predictive intention of helping shepherd this one piece of work into the world." (Stereo Embers Magazine)
Up To The Sky is a solo album of songs for voice and cello, captured live in the historic St. Peter’s Church in Chelsea, NYC. It was recorded under the church’s rafters with eight microphones over two days by Adam Gold, then mixed by Chris D. Butler in Brooklyn. The album includes originals, some unusual covers including a song by Molly Drake and an array of instrumental and vocal improvisations. Second Kiss Records.
