Q​-​Dee Rock and Soul Series #8

by Sea Monsters

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The much anticipated release from the Sea Monsters- never before heard, except from stage.

    “Slowly but surely, the Sea Monsters have become one of Boston’s best, most inspired bands. Founded by Celtic rocker Christian McNeill and blue-eyed soul singer extraordinaire Jesse Dee, the Sea Monsters always deliver a varied, high-energy evening. It’s hard to describe how good these guys have gotten. They’re full of Boston all-stars and they prove it every time they play.” – STEVE MORSE

    A potent batch that fuses fiery emotion and lasting hooks over a thick backdrop. It's like the E Street Band hopped up on funk scriptures, or Otis Redding spending time with the Who.

    The 45 is a premium direct metal master (clear sea green) vinyl disk and includes a beautiful toploading cardboard jacket. Recorded at Q division especially for this release, each disk of 500 is individually numbered.

    Also includes immediate download of 6-track album (INCLUDES 3 Bonus TRACKS!) in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

Sea Monsters have built a reputation by playing music for the right reasons. Lead by roots-punk rocker Christian McNeill and using his songs for ammunition, the band consistently features the best singer/songwriters and players to grace the music community in Boston and Cambridge, MA.

What started as an “anything goes” acoustic forum for a group of songwriters to work on each other’s creations has evolved into Boston’s most electric live act—usually eight-strong on any given night and always welcoming guest musicians. As a result, Sea Monsters have steadily won over a following and built a loyal community, all without the help of modern promotional tools. No website. No Facebook page. No Myspace or Twitter account. Just word of mouth and most importantly, the positive energy that comes from an honest-night’s live experience. There's no faking it here. Just songs.

Having recently closed the books on their Boston Music Award-winning three-year Sunday residency at Precinct—a cool, dimly lit spot that used to be the headquarters of the Somerville police station—the band has taken to the legendary Q Division Studios to capture the vibe. This is the same room that local greats like Morphine, Aimee Mann, Peter Wolf, Dropkick Murphy’s, and the Pixies have all used to make their bread.
