What a fun interview with one of the number one online and in-print Blues magazines in the world American Blues Scene. Here are a few outtakes but your gonna have to read it all at their website by clicking the headline above.
“There has been a lot of talk the last few years concerning the “decline” of Detroit. Well, Detroit is on the rebound. Take for example the rockin’ blues of Detroit native Eliza Neals. Originally trained as an opera singer, she has been tearing it up in local venues, and around the country as well. She sings with the power of Beth Hart, the emotion of Janis Joplin, yet the voice is still her own. Her music is powerful as well. Neals blends rock and blues seamlessly, throwing in a pinch of soul for good measure.”
“American Blues Scene recently spoke with Neals about her musical journey, her killer new album, Breaking and Entering, and why Detroit is still very, very cool.”
I answered questions like:
“ABS – Tell us a little about your musical background growing up.”
“ABS – When did you decide that you wanted to pursue blues instead of opera?”
“ABS – Let’s talk a little about your new album, Breaking and Entering. You used a lot of your friends in making this album.”
