RSB brought in two new fiery guitar slingers, Bart Walker and Tyrone Vaughan to breathe new energy into Royal Southern Brotherhood’s sound and help the venerable Cyril Neville and powerhouse rhythm section Yonrico Scott and Charlie Wooton up the funk while maintaining the blues and rock edge that has brought the band a worldwide audience.

Bart Walker is a classically trained musician who cut his rock/blues chops with The Screamin’ Cheetah Willies featuring SRV keyboard player Reece Wynans.
His debut, Waiting On Daylight, led to him signing with Ruf Records “Joining RSB was the best idea anyone had for me,” said the affable Walker.

Tyrone Vaughan is the son of Jimmie Vaughan and the nephew of the iconic Stevie Ray Vaughan but has developed his own gifted style and signature tone by gigging in Austin and packing clubs around Texas. He’s developed a soulful voice along with an “all in your face” guitar tone that mixes blues, rock and country.

Founder member Cyril Neville has long been considered a New Orleans Icon and musical royalty for his stints in the Grammy Award winning Neville Brothers, Galactic and The Meters. Neville’s career has spawned over 45 years of making music with Bono, Joan Baez, Dr. John and Tab Benoit. In 1989, Cyril penned, the Civil Rights song “Sister Rosa” which USA Today chose as one of the most inspirational song about Martin Luther King’s, “I Have A Dream,” speech.

Cyril has also been interviewed by drummer, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, for the “Sonic Highways” documentary on HBO, to gain an understanding of New Orleans’s unique musical sound.
Cyril Neville’s experience and talent, combined with these energetic players creates a new sound that remains reverent to the blues traditions.

RSB’s new album 'Don’t Look Back: The Muscle Shoals Sessions' highlights the magic that happens when great songs are performed by a great band!
