“Whale Belly was formed by Todd Bogin and Nick Smeraski in 2010. What started as two friends’ experimentations in songwriting and recording has turned into a debut album called …The Smile at the End of the Slope, an intense, raw mix of determined folky-blues-rock which has been receiving enormous praise. In their short existence, Whale Belly has toured as a supporting act for nationally-known bands, been featured on various radio stations, and gained a cult following around Brooklyn with fun and rollicking live shows.” — Mercury Lounge website
