Carousels 03:27
Carousels We've been walking ancient roads, jumping over fences. Just rolling down a mountainside, filling up our senses. Stop to take a photograph, a moment caught in amber. I mean a moment caught in amber's something I'll always remember. Hey now, Look at all this history we're making. There's not one thing for granted I am taking. No, no. Meanwhile all the city's architecture's reaching up into the night. And it's been a long day's journey, through carousels of refracting light. I don't know what the future holds, I hope I'm holding you in the future. I mean to hold you in the future's something I'll surely remember. Hey now, Look at all this history we're making. There's not one thing for granted I am taking. No, no. We are walking ancient roads and jumping over fences. That fog rolling down a mountainside is filling up our senses. Stop to take a photograph, a moment caught in amber. I mean a moment caught in amber's something I'll surely remember. I said, hey now, Look at all this history we're making. There's not one thing for granted I am taking. No, no. No, no. __________________________________ __________________________________

about

"Carousels" is my first official release in 5 years. I wrote the song in January of this year. With everything that is going on, I thought it would be a nice thing if my friends and fans heard it now. It was recorded by 5 musicians in each of our home studios, over a three week period in March and April 2020.

I am offering this single with the previously unreleased track, 'A Boston Sunrise' as a free download, OR pay what you want. Anything people pay for will help me record the next batch of songs.

about

Christian McNeill Boston, Massachusetts

Christian McNeill is an underground legend whose music demands to be experienced. Longtime Boston journalist, Nate Dow, describes him best, "..his blend of styles and influences is intoxicating, turning elements of soul, gospel and R&B into a cocktail that rocks. McNeill’s stage presence is natural, unaffected and powerfully evocative, almost overwhelming. It is part of the entertainment package." ... more
