Album Notes
An assembly line of blues and rock drives “messin with a fool,” it captures Detroit’s independent spirit with true grit and motor city soul. Eliza Neals sought out the unique talents of veteran writer/producer Martin ‘Tino’ Gross (Kid Rock, RL Burnside) and united him with Detroit legend Barrett Strong (Marvin Gaye, Temptations) to begin provocative recording sessions. Eliza’s “strangely sultry blues voice” and cool writing style melted with the two masters forging a solid union. Completing their first song plus music video in the summer of 2010, proved “Misery” could truly bring happiness!

“messin with a fool” is finished, thirteen songs hammered into a Bluesy Motown-Rock-Soul-Fortress! Rocking Detroit, New York City and multiple stops in between refined and hardened the sound. MT cover girl Eliza Neals is “handily bridging the idea of a blues chanteuse, the classy, sexy singer, to a genre that seems to be overrun with style-over-substance singers.…Husky crooners don’t come along like this very often.” –Metrotimes fall 2011

"Eliza Neals’s 'messin with a fool' is the record that people who have seen Neals live will have been hoping she would release. Neals, for the uninitiated is the sultry swingin’, croonin’ jazz Queen of the D. She’s like Amy Winehouse without the obvious addiction issues or the hair. The songs are certainly in place. Oh, and she has a tune called “Rainin’ in Detroit”, which is appropriate because she was performing when the storm hit the Arts Beats & Eats Festival back in the summer of last year." - Metrotimes Jan 2012

Detroit Street-cred would sum things up, the album has songs written by Barrett Strong (Money, Heard it Through the Grapevine, WAR, etc), Tino Gross (Uncle Kracker, Howling Diablos), Johnny 'Bee' Badanjek (The Rockets) and Don 'Doop' Duprie (The Inside Outlaws). Musicians include Tino Gross, Barrett Strong, Jimmie Bones (Kid Rock), Leonard Moon (Mitch Ryder), Mike Smith (770), Johnny Badanjek, Don Duprie, Kenny Robinson, Duke Fakir Jr (Four Tops), Steve Dresser and Eliza Neals plus more.

"The new songs are inspired by whats happening right now in Michigan and around the world" says Mr. Strong, "people need to understand the problems and fix em, sometimes good music breaks down those barriers."

"Awesome your album is gonna blow minds..." Tino Gross
