CANAJOHARIE — Over the past weekend, from Friday through Sunday, Utica-based artist Anthony Bianco — who releases albums and performs under the moniker Waails — finished recording his upcoming album “Earthworks” at the Upstate Chapel (formerly Sts. Peter and Paul, at the corner of Walnut and Cliff streets), Canajoharie.
“Earthworks”, scheduled for release sometime this fall, is shaping up to Waails’ most accomplished, organic work. Bianco said that while he’s been working on this album for quite some time, having recorded most of the album’s electronic production, access to the Upstate Chapel’s grand piano, harpsichord and towering pipe organ — and “having the chance to record there … to be in the space”, allowed him to “bring a warmth” to the recordings.
