An Evening With Ivan Neville

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome ­­­­­­­­­Ivan Neville to the Museum’s Rooftop Terrace for a special evening celebrating his incredible career and the release of his first new solo album in almost 20 years, Touch My Soul. The evening will include an intimate conversation with Ivan about the making of his new album including his collaborations with Bonnie Raitt, Michael McDonald, Aaron Neville, Cyril Neville, Trombone Shorty, David Shaw and members of Preservation Hall, as well as his creative process, career, musical influences, and more, followed by a very special performance. Attendees will also have an opportunity to enjoy incredible rooftop views and a cash bar prior to the program. 

As a standard bearer for the musical culture of New Orleans, Ivan Neville takes his anointing as seriously as the swamp water that courses through his veins. From the ferocious funk he makes with his bandmates in the dynamic Dumpstaphunk to his high-profile gigs with Keith Richards and Bonnie Raitt, he embodies the irrepressible spirit of New Orleans.  

Ivan’s blood line runs through two of the most influential groups that New Orleans has produced, and that he has played with them both. 

His uncle Art Neville was the vocalist and keyboardist with the Meters, who epitomized New Orleans funk and are among modern music’s most sampled groups.  

Art also founded the Neville Brothers with Ivan’s uncles Charles and Cyril, and his father, the great balladeer and stylist Aaron Neville. The Nevilles’ musical range not only spanned generations but also idioms like carnival rhythms, pop, soul, R&B and jazz; their collective identity galvanized Black New Orleans’s cultural life to create a musical identity that focused their individual gifts with grace and grit.

Ivan is even more humble about his stature at the highest echelon of modern music. He has performed and recorded with the Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley, Robbie Robertson, Ani DeFranco and the Spin Doctors, among many others. He’s a charter member of Keith Richards’ X-Pensive Winos. He’s a founding member of the New Orleans Social Club and the group Neville Jacobs, in partnership with the songwriter Cris Jacobs.  

Touch My Soul — Ivan’s first solo album in almost 20 years — is tough-minded but also tender, filled with joy, beauty and pain. It exudes an unmistakable New Orleans ambience and breathes new life into his singular sound. It’s both a love letter to the Crescent City and a celebration of his emotional and spiritual journey as an artist, a father and a man.  

The album includes the singles “Hey All Together” – featuring Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville, Michael McDonald and David Shaw (The Revivalists), with instrumental sparks from Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and violinist Theresa Anderson – and “Greatest Place On Earth,” a deliriously Mardi Gras-styled salute to the Crescent City packed with incisive rhythms, booting horn parts, and vocal fireworks, featuring special guests Trombone Shorty along with Preservation Hall Jazz bandleaders Ben Jaffe and Charlie Gabriel.

Ivan most recently performed on the GRAMMY-winning track “Stompin’ Ground” with Aaron Neville, Dirty Dozen Brass band, and Eric Krasno which was released in the documentary Take Me To The River and took home the award for Best American Roots Performance.
