Eliza Neals
Manhattan - New York - United States

Eliza Neals is a prolific songwriter, confident producer, arranger, bandleader, pianist, and one-of-a-kind live performer. Eliza sings with unearthly passion and velvety grit, effortlessly pushing air to new heights. Her operatically trained voice has been called both sexy and menacing. None of this is surprising, of course, as Eliza mentored with Detroit’s songwriting legend Barrett Strong Jr.

“Eliza Neals and the Narcotics” is a combination of modern electric Blues, Psychedelic Rock with a twist of Jam band and Southern Soul. Original compositions have garnered Eliza a 2018 Detroit Black Music Award for “Blues Artist of the Year.” and FIVE Detroit Music Awards. A total of eight nominations in the newly formed “Independent Blues Awards” along with “Get Ready To Rock UK’s” glowing Best Artists awards in five categories. 

Eliza’s history of performing/opening for legendary musicians goes back many years from Detroit’s songwriting godfather Barrett Strong to George Clinton, The Four Tops, Kenny Olson, Mike Zito, Tommy Castro, Walter Trout, Poppa Chubby, Albert Castiglia, Micki Free, Victor Wainwright and recently Blues Foundation HOF man Joe Louis Walker.

Eliza last full album “10,000 Feet Below” is a ‘Top Album of 2017’ after landing on so many best of lists. “10,000 Feet Below” finished 2017; #14 on the Blues-Rock chart and #41 on the Blues RMR chart.

SIRIUS XM CH.74 B.B. Kings Bluesville has had Eliza Neals in rotation since she released her incendiary ‘Breaking and Entering’ literally breaking her into the National Blues scene. A total of FIVE of Eliza’s songs have been played on Sirius XM satellite radio. Her blues ballad “Another Lifetime” reached #6 on Rack-of-Blues and her most recent single New Orleans infused “Love Dr. Love” reached #12 on Rack-of-Blues in 2018. Eliza’s albums have made it onto Billboard Top #25 and had 5 singles in the TOP 5 spots on Amazon and Itunes for over 3 months.

A cadre of amazing musicians has backed up Eliza Neals over the years. “The best in the business” is what people are saying with an all-star line-up wherever Eliza goes, the audience will be thrilled with her band and plethora of special guests.

Her radio charting and press is phenomenal, however, the standout is seeing Eliza Neals perform live. Eliza’s live shows are exciting, intoxicating and jam-packed with sultry powerful vocals, spirited moves, and soulful piano playing, all while leading her stellar band not missing a beat. Phil Ohlinger the president of the Ohio “Big Bend Blues Bash” who booked Eliza said… “In seventeen years we have had some great women vocalists perform but NOT ONE has outperformed Eliza. I think we have a new crowd favorite!.”
