Half the songsonBrand New Blues are original material co-written by Cyril with the perspective of an outspoken advocate, from his work with Amnesty International on Human Rights to the plight of Louisiana’s dissipating Wetlands. The new release churns up a lifetime of musical influences & passions; blues, funk and soul. Producer/musician Brian J of The Pimps of Joytime is at the helm of most production chores by playing most of the instruments to recording and writing with Cyril. A barrage of support appears on the record from family and friends who help Cyril achieve his vision of what is “Brand New Blues.” Guest appearances include brother and fellow Meter Art Neville (Organ) Ivan Neville (Organ), Ian Neville (Guitar), Tab Benoit (Guitar), Waylon Thibodeaux (Washboard) and Jumpin’ Johnny Sansone on harmonica. The sessions were recorded in Brooklyn NY, Austin TX, Houma LA & New Orleans LA.
“There is no one in the entire world more soulful. Nor is anyone more serious about their calling. With a heart full of love and concern, which are ever, present. Cyril Neville is a beautiful treasured gift of the garden. And I am glad to say, my friend. Allen Toussaint
