He has worked with such legends as Elvis Costello (The Specials 1979 - Chrysalis Records), David Byrne (Fun Boy 3 Waiting 1983 - Chrysalis Records), and Ali Campbell (Today's Specials 1996 - Kuff Records/Virgin), to name only a few.
Some of Neville's recent projects and collaborations include hooking up with Roger Lomas, in Coventry, England to record Skinhead Girl and Conquering Ruler for Trojan Records (UK), and co-producing with John Avila (Oingo Boingo) The Best of The Specials & Fun Boy 3 Performed by Neville Staple for Cleopatra Records.
Since 1998 Neville has been on a mission to entertain, successfully touring North and South America extensively on his own.
It is well worth seeing Neville's live; his captivating stage presence and distinct voice are well worth it! The man has a purple aura and warm affect. If you didn't come to skank, you'll leave skanking down the street. Catch his show these days, and you'll get a mix of old favorites plus loads of his brand new original solo material.
