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!

OUR SOUND

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.
