WUMB Presents, Christian McNeill


September 15th, 2016 - 7 pm

Christian McNeill. Note the name. If there’s justice in the world, you’ll hear it more.” 
- STEVE MORSE – The Boston Globe

Native of Derry City, Ireland, Christian McNeill is a force of alternative rock and soul, renowned for gritty and passionate live shows and songs with memorable lyrics anchored in infectious melodies. If you trace his career arc back to his early days with post-punk band, Schtum, to his most recent project, Sea Monsters, you will hear a style of singing and songwriting that is ever-evolving and always engaging. The uncompromising honesty of the song "Zero" caught the ear of Steven Van Zandt, who in turn placed two songs from the 2013 album "Everything's Up For Grabs," in heavy rotation on his globally broadcast, Underground Garage.
 
McNeill is a New Englander these days and resides in the Boston area, where he won "Male Vocalist Of The Year" two years running at the Boston Music Awards in 2011 and 2012.. He spent 2015 in songwriting and recording mode working on his forthcoming record, "Trapped On The Planet," which is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2016.
 
*****
 
“Too much music today is culled from formula and false emotion. True believers need a rebirth of passion where honest feelings rule the day. We saw it in Grammy winning Adele -- and we see it in a Boston phenomenon that deserves national discovery -- Christian McNeill. Note the name. If there’s justice in the world, you’ll hear it more.” 
- STEVE MORSE – The Boston Globe
 
“There are untold musical heroes spread out across the country. They play constantly, building local followings and often wondering why national attention doesn’t come their way. In New England there is no one more worthy of grabbing listeners by the collar and shaking their world than Christian McNeill.”
- BILL BENTLEY – Bentley’s Bandstand – The Morton Report
