Welcome to Soulful Silverback®

Hi, my name is Neville. I'm a storyteller and I founded Soulful Silverback to write stories about overcoming challenges through education, understanding, and love. At the Silverback, our intention is to inspire everyone who is grappling with the tougher questions in life to be their most authentic selves.

In addition to our passion for writing, the Silverback brand embodies our love for timeless fashion and clean brand design. The brand icon features a confident gorilla with a soulful message enclosed in a powerful narrative. You can read more about the writing project and our brand mission over on the "Learn" page. 

We're selling brand apparel to fund the development of this evocative tale. Enjoy reading the pieces at your own leisure but for now, thanks in advance for shopping to support Soulful Silverback!

Cheers,

OUR STORY
Soulful Silverback is a narrative about tribulation and success. Our mission is to inspire everyone who is wrestling with the tougher questions in life to be their most authentic selves.

The brand design elements feature a bold 1970s orange and a modern silverback icon that is modeled after Auguste Rodin’s sculpture, The Thinker.

OUR INTENTION
Continue developing a multimedia storytelling sandbox toward producing a soulful memoir that gives voice to the Black millennial experience in the 21st century. At the Silverback, our goal is to develop a community that is united in understanding and love.

OUR HEART
We are evaluating educational non-profits to partner with but in the meantime, we continue to volunteer time speaking to universities, high schools, and sports teams. If you have ideas for partnership, let’s find the time to connect.

OUR VOICE
Neville “The Silverback” is a storyteller and a small business owner. He writes first-person stories with a soulful sound and he formed this space as a creative outlet for his passions.

We’re selling brand apparel to fund editing our writing, piece by piece. As we continue to tinker in this digital workshop, we invite you to enjoy the Silverback experience: the soulful story of a creative brand.

OUR SOUND
Soulful Silverback’s debut reading playlist paints a vivid picture of his experiences grappling with racism and white supremacy as a Black American. The e-book “mixtape” is titled "Chaining Day" and features a collection of (12) written essays that center around his experiences with race as a 6’1 250-pound Black guy from the People’s Republic of Brooklyn, NYC.
