Neville Jacobs

Neville Jacobs is the convergence of two well-worn paths of two diverse and singular artists. This unlikely connection between Ivan Neville of New Orleans’ first family of funk’s deep musical bloodline, and Cris Jacobs, the eclectic and soulful Baltimore-bred bandleader and songwriter, began at an even unlikelier place. One day during the great celebration and intermingling of music and culture known as New Orleans Jazz Fest, Neville and Jacobs found themselves killing time between gigs, seated next to each other at a poker table. After a few hours of tossing cards and chatting about music, a friendship was formed with a plan to one day create some music together. When the stars finally aligned, the undeniable synergy between the two created a fresh and timeless sound - equal parts soulful, funky, sweet, and dirty. This batch of well crafted songs, with some written by Ivan, some by Cris, and several co-written by the two, feature their two distinct voices and grooves complimenting the other perfectly. This first
chapter of Neville Jacobs is the beginning of what is sure to be a long lasting and fruitful collaboration between two truly unique talents.

Over the years, Peter More and his bandmates have called many places home. Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, More joined forces with Spanish flamenco guitarist José Juan Poyatos, Mexican bassist Diego Noyola, and French-American drummer Adrien Faunce in San Miguel de Allende, the colonial arts haven three hours north of Mexico City. There, the band began to record with prolific drummer Rick Shlosser (who played on many Van Morrison and James Taylor classics, among hundreds of other credits). A chance encounter with Steely Dan's Donald Fagen, who happened to be visiting San Miguel, led to Fagen producing More's debut album, "Beautiful Disrepair," and his follow-up EP entitled "Shoulder."

Best described by Donald Fagen as music with "a smart savvy edge...its an American dish served with hot sauce." More's layered stories naturally have evolved with the band’s continual movement through recording sessions beyond San Miguel that took place in Fort Worth, New York City, and Woodstock. Wanderlust underscores More's music, weaving the many influences and intersections from the songwriter's unconventional journey. The road just seems to strengthen the bond between the band-mates and the power of More's heartfelt songs.
