“At ﬁrst glance, Neals’ voice shares a Janis Joplin and Etta James singing style; but her own unique and tremendous talents make her speciﬁ cally superior and very, very likable.” - Blues Music Magazine
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.
