Grammy Award winning New Orlean’s Neville Brother, Cyril Neville, has been called a philosopher, poet, and one of the last great southern soul singers. In 1970 he released his debut solo single, ‘Gossip’ b/w “Tell Me What’s On Your Mind,” which included backing music by brother Art’ new outfit, the Meters. It just so happened at this time that the Meters, who have since won the grammy's lifetime achievement award, were looking to expand their lineup, and asked Cyril to join in on vocals and percussion contributing to the classic Meter’s albums such as 1972’s Cabbage Alley and 1975’s Fire on the Bayou. Later that year The Rolling Stones invited the Meters to support the bands World Tour and Mick and Keith wouldn’t have it any other way “you guys should come on tour with us with Cyril as your singer.” is how it was put to the Meters who obliged.

Cyril has co-written songs with Bono of U2, Taj Mahal, Daniel Lanois, to name a few and was the one that Lanois credits as the musical catalyst that led to the Neville’s Grammy Award winning record “YELLOW MOON.” the Voice of the Wetlands All-stars, The Neville Brothers, and continues to do shows with his own group Tribe 13. His most resent television have been on 2011’s episode of JimmY Kimmel LIVE and HBO’s hit series “Treme.” Cyril is featured on recordings by Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Dr. John, Tab Benoit, Edie Brickell, Willie Nelson, plus many more. He has performed all over the world including the infamous Amnesty International tour with U2 and the Police and has sung for Nelson Mandela. There is no doubt that with in the first few vocal notes it is easy to tell that musical royalty runs deep in Cyril’s blood and he remains a percussionist to be reckoned with.
