Aaron Neville

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

With his distinctively refined, silky voice, Aaron Neville began topping charts in pop and R&B in 1966, a tradition of excellence continued in his latest project: A selection of doo-wop and vocal group covers ranging from Hank Ballard and the Midnighters to early Curtis Mayfield. Produced by Don Was and Keith Richards, My True Story sounds warm, clean and timeless, though most of the songs first appeared on the charts more than 50 years ago. These tunes had an impact on singers from Elvis to Zappa because they feature the human voice as a primary instrument and show its capabilities to convey a degree of emotion seldom seen outside of opera. When the voice in the spotlight is Neville’s relaxed, high tenor, even the songs that might feel a little sanitized by contemporary standards are brought to life, infused with the implicit seductive power they held for the first teenagers who heard them.
