ROYAL SOUTHERN BROTHERHOOD
Royal Southern Brotherhood
(Yellow Eye)

If you've heard about Royal Southern Brotherhood you'll know they have a family tree that is two parts genetically impeccable. 

Cyrille Neville is an original Neville Brother while Devon Allman is the son of Greg, who with brother Duane recorded one of the alltime classic southern (white) blues albums, Eat A Peach, as one of the namesakes of The Allman Brothers.

Pedigree though guarantees nothing and the self-titled debut album of these southern aristocrats will inevitably bring unwanted expectations.

It's certainly not startling but in the tightly-knit rhythms and muddy grooves of songs such as Heart In Memphis and Midnight Over The Mississippi you'll hear a band relaxed and refreshingly comfortable in its own skin.
