Royal Southern Brotherhood

Before they even hit a chord, The Royal Southern Brotherhood have your attention. In the US South, where music is religion, two rock 'n' roll bloodlines tower above all others. In the saloon bars from Mississippi to Maryland, mere mention of the Allman and Neville Brothers casts a magic spell. These aren't just bands, they're gods, and with a lineup comprising both the iconic Cyril Neville and Devon Allman, The Royal Southern Brotherhood come pre-loaded with expectations. Don't worry: they can match them. The family tree might be auspicious, but this new band trades on talent, not genealogy. It's not about rock history: it's about the here-and-now.

This lineup has talent to burn. You'll already know Cyril Neville: poet, philosopher, percussion master and perhaps the South' last great soul singer. Devon Allman. As the son of Gregg Allman, the 42-year-old has rock 'n' roll in his DNA, but he's always walked his own path. Bart Walker, the newest member and young six-string slinger is the winner of the 2012 International Blues Challenge’s prestigious Best Guitarist award and is brimming with talent! Bassist Charlie Wooten and drummer Yonrico Scott: both heavyweight names in their own right, with Charlie's bass chops celebrated on the Southern jam scene for his sets with the Woods Brothers, and Yonrico hitting the skins for luminaries including the Derek Trucks Band, Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers themselves.

Some may say rock 'n' roll is dead, but they’re wrong. Right now there's something in the air, as The Royal Southern Brotherhood drag their thrilling new brand of blues-rock and white-hot musicianship from the Southern States onto the world stage. The South is rising again. Come along for the ride.
