The Great White was recorded throughout the winter of 2015 in three studios across Maryland and Connecticut. Utilizing multiple engineers at each session, we aimed to create a piece of work that individualizes each song and build off of the music we had released prior. We hope you enjoy the music as much as we enjoyed creating it!
