About Aaron Neville
With 2013’s My True Story, one of the world’s finest singers is revisiting the music he grew up with, and adding a few new spins along the way. Neville’s latest release is a collection of twelve classic doo-wop numbers, performed in his utterly inimitable vocal style. The selections on the album include classics by such vocal-group giants as Little Anthony and the Imperials (“Tears on My Pillow”), Hank Ballard and the Midnighters (“Work With Me, Annie”), and the Drifters (“Money Honey,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “This Magic Moment”). To Neville, though, these songs weren’t just the soundtrack to his youth; they became the underpinning for all of the remarkable music he has created across five decades.
Aaron Neville’s incredible career has seen him move seamlessly back and forth between solo work and his role in the first family of New Orleans music, the Neville Brothers. His first hit single was the landmark “Tell It Like It Is,” which held the Number One spot on the R&B charts for five weeks in 1967. He went on to win Grammy Awards for his triple-platinum 1989 collaboration with Linda Ronstadt Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, and reached the Country charts with the title track of 1993’s The Grand Tour.
Neville’s accolades are many and varied: he has had four records go platinum; he has scored four top 10 hits; he has been inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and the Delta Music Hall of Fame.
