Neville’s recording career began in the 1960s, and he first hit the charts with the single “Tell It Like It Is” in 1966, which reached No. 1 in the U.S. R&B listings. Neville’s other chart-topping singles came in 1989 with “Don’t Know Much,” a debut with Linda Ronstadt and “Everybody Plays The Fool” in 1991.
In 1977, Neville began recording with brothers Art, Charles and Cyril, forming The Neville Brothers. The Neville Brothers disbanded in 2012, but reunited for a farewell concert in their hometown of New Orleans in 2015.
Overall, Neville has recorded 17 solo albums, including two Christmas collections, and 10 studio albums with The Neville Brothers. Neville’s top solo albums include “Tell It Like It Is,” “The Grand Tour,” “Devotion,” and “My True Story.”
Neville’s latest solo album “Apache,” much of which he co-wrote, was released in 2016, the year Neville celebrated his 75th birthday.
“There comes a time when you look at life and think about your mortality and say ‘How much have I got left,’” Neville said. “I wanted to do something else in my life before I got out of here. And I’ve got a lot more. As I say, I’ve got a long ways to go and a short time to make it in.”
