10,000 Feet Below

Eliza Neals

CD Baby 2017

Review by David Bowling

 

Eliza Neals is a gritty, down to earth blues singer, keyboardist, and songwriter who strides the line between traditional and modern day blues.

Her vocals have a primitive quality that reach back to the delta, while her music, especially with guitarist Howard Glazier, have a connection to the present.

Songs such as “Cleotus,” “Downhill On A Rocket,” “Call Me Moonshine,” “You Ain’t My Dog No More,” and the only cover song, “Hard Killing Floor,” explode from the speakers and grab your attention.

10,000 Feet Below is a primordial ride through the mind and music of Eliza Neals. It is a ride worth taking.
