MPAC presents multiple Grammy award-winner Aaron Neville and his new album "Apache".
Aaron Neville - member of the world-renowned Neville Brothers and one of the most recognizable voices in American music history - released "Apache" this past July 15 via Tell It Records and Kobalt Label Services. The album celebrates Neville's 75th birthday, while 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Aaron's first number one single, "Tell It Like It Is."
Apache was recorded at Studio G in Brooklyn and produced by multi Grammy-winning artist and producer Eric Krasno (Soulive, Lettuce, Tedeschi Trucks Band). Of the album Neville says, "It brought out another side of me; people were used to me doing a lot of ballads, but this is more gritty, and some of it has the New Orleans feel." He adds, "One song talks about my roots 'Stompin' Ground.' It names a lot of real people that were in my life at different points in time. Another one, 'Orchid In The Storm,' was inspired by my wife Sarah; she's been my orchid in a storm, and still is. Another song is 'Heaven,' from a poem I wrote a while back. My inspirations come from real things in life and I have many more where these came from."
