Give it up for the lady pounding on the keys, carrying the melody!
Detroit born- New Jersey resident, Eliza Neals, doesn’t have your normal 9 to 5. Her office is the stage; her desk is the piano.
The award-winning blues/rock singer has been in music for most of her life. She sang with her sisters while she was living in Detroit, earned an opera degree, and now has an album that is on the charts, third worldwide.
Eliza took her opera background and headed in a different direction: the Blues/Rock scene.
“I started singing everywhere I could,” Eliza Neals said. “Every CD bar in Detroit there was.”
Creating her own brand of rock n’ roll blues, Eliza produced a few albums including “Sugar Daddy,” “Kansas City,” and her latest, “Breaking and Entering.”
“The vibe is pretty much you put it in your car, you’re going to drive to the Jersey Shore, you’re going to listen from the beginning to the end,” Eliza said on her album “Breaking and Entering.”
The band behind the tunes is called “All Star.” Gabe Gonzalez from P. Funk, George Clinton and Enema Squad is on the drums, iconic blues guitar player Howard Glazer is on the strings, and Eliza is on those keys!
#HipNJ’s Kendall Zoppa got a sneak peak live performance of “Pretty Gritty” from “Breaking and Entering!”
Eliza describes her music as grungey. We say it is hip and fabulous!
