Inside The Whale

by Christian McNeill

Hello Music 07:19


The "Inside The Whale' EP was recorded in 2004 at Camp Street Studios, Cambridge, MA. It was meant to be my first ever solo release. For reasons which make no sense to me now, I decided not to release this EP back then. I realize that it was foolish of me, because upon listening back to this collection of songs 16 years later, I feel this is some of my best songwriting from that decade.

Fast forward 16 years, and it is finally available in its entirety for the very first time, right here on Bandcamp.

I sincerely hope you enjoy these songs which feel like a time capsule from a much different world. Everything has changed and so have we.

Thank you so much for your support.

Christian McNeill 💚
