After college, Neal moved to Nashville, TN and began kicking around the scene as an aspiring solo artist. However, it wasn’t until he embarked on a three-month journey to Nova Scotia, Canada, where he found his roots as an artist. “I rented a house in the middle of the woods on a secluded lake near the ocean. It was surreal. I lived a life of complete seclusion – writing music, learning production and living off the grid.”
In February 2019, Neal released his debut EP, Up My Sleeve, which is just a sample of what’s to come in the future. In July 2019, Neal played the Electric Forest Festival, where he served as the house pianist/performer for Calliope Presents. Keep your eye out for this Detroit artist that’s striving to merge the soul of Motown with the funk of the 70s and polish of modern production.
