A FUNKY NOLA MEDIA BLAST!
Cyril Neville’s Magic Honey: Promos Start TOMORROW!
Twice a week with a different view of this beloved singer from NOLA!
Starting tomorrow August 14th, Ruf Records recording artist, Cyril Neville will be posting small visuals of music, photos and quotes to preview his newest CD, “Magic Honey” that will be released on September 10. The teasers will be posted on every Wednesday and Friday leading up to the release date. You will find them on his various social media sites as well as his website: www.cyrilneville.net
Produced by David Z (Prince, Etta James, Buddy Guy) and recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana, Magic Honey delivers an amazing amalgam of sounds, all tethered to Cyril’s most-soulful of vocals, and backed by an all-star band that includes Cranston Clements – guitar; “Mean” Willie Green – drums; Carl Dufrene – bass; and Norman Caesar – keyboards. And if that’s not enough, joining in on the fun as special guests are two roots music icons - Allen Toussaint and Dr. John – on piano and organ respectively, plus fellow Royal Southern Brotherhood bandmate Mike Zito and Walter Trout on guitars.
As in any great gumbo – musical or otherwise – Cyril Neville blends many ingredients to create a signature sonic dish that draws from a wellspring of blues, soul, funk, rock and world music, adds some heat to the mix and stirs it up to a beautiful boil. The even-dozen tracks on Magic Honey showcase an incredibly talented songwriter bringing his words to life with a mystical, spiritual honesty and simplicity that transcends any musical categories. Ruf Records is distributed by Allegro worldwide.
So come along for the ride…
