The Sandpaper gets ready for powerhouse Eliza Neals on April 8th in South Jersey


To fittingly wrap up Women’s History Month, the Lizzie Rose Music Room has announced some stellar female acts upcoming in the next two months.

Detroit born, Jersey-based blues rocker Eliza Neals will return on April 8 to perform tunes off her second record, Badder to the Bone, produced during the era of COVID-19. Via her own record label, Neals has captivated the world since 2015, garnering attention on international radio and in various music publications, and hitting iconic festivals on tour. She is often featured on SiriusXM station BB King’s Bluesville.

While attending Wayne State University Music School, Neals was discovered by Motown legend Barrett Strong, who penned the hits “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” and “Papa was a Rolling Stone.” She became a Strong protegé, going on to become a five-time Detroit Music Award winner and 17-time nominee for the Independent Blues Awards. Most recently, Neals swept the Detroit Black Music Awards’ “Blues Artist of the Year.”

Taking her own twist on a vocal style sometimes likened to those of blues greats Etta James and Janis Joplin, Neals is not to be missed.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. Tickets are $32 in advance and $40 at the door.”
