"[Aaron Neville] still sings like an angel who's swallowed a wah-wah pedal. It's that blend of unforced sweetness, honesty and melodic sensibility that still makes his music so believable after a career spanning more than five decades."
Aaron Neville’s incredible career has seen him move seamlessly back and forth between the funky stuff he’s favored when working with his esteemed band of brothers, the Neville Brothers, and the angelic balladry you associate with him when he’s punching his own time card as a solo artist.
His first hit single was the landmark “Tell It Like It Is,” which held the #1 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’s Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, and reached the country charts with the title track of 1993’s The Grand Tour. This intimate duo features Michael Goods.
- “I like the laid-back quality of the duo, just coming off the top of my head with things, not having to worry about whether we rehearsed it. Sometimes I put Michael on the spot, because I’ll come up with something he’s never heard before, but then he’ll catch it and that will make it even cooler. I bring the audience back to where I first started, with some Nat King Cole or anything that comes to my mind…” – Aaron Neville
