ROYAL SOUTHERN BROTHERHOOD

HEARTSOULBLOOD

2014-06-24

Super group Royal Southern Brotherhood {Devon Allman, Cyril Neville, Mike Zito, Charlie Wooten and drummer Yornico Scott} are back for their second studio release. This release takes off where the first left off combining Southern Blues, Rock and Soul in a way only these five musicians can. The amazing thing about this group is how ego free they seem and how cohesive of a unit they have become. On the 12 musical gems contained within this disc the members share songwriting, vocals and astounding guitar rifts by both Mike Zito and Duane Allman. With the talents contained here and with the Allman legacy, this could have been a lengthy jam band release, but is instead a spicy gumbo of cohesive Rock, Soul and Blues. I can only hope we will be treated to a third course from the Royal Southern Brotherhood in the near future. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
