"Something's Better Than Nothing" new Soul-Blues song out FEB 1st from sensation Eliza Neals

By: PRLog

Detroit born, Blues-rock star Eliza Neals and late Grammy winner, SongHall inductee Barrett Strong Jr. wrote "Something's Better Than Nothing." Mr. Strong always wanted Eliza Neals to release her own version of their song. Eliza's version was recorded before his January 2023 passing and Barrett Strong gave her his blessing. Strong often reminded everyone what was important in life through his iconic songwriting. "Something's Better than Nothing" is right on time.

MANHATTAN, N.Y. - Jan. 15, 2024 - PRLog -- "The best things in life are free and so is something's better than nothing," said the late Detroit songwriting HOF, Grammy winning icon Mr. Barrett Strong Jr. to his protégé Eliza Neals. Completing the song in late 2021, Eliza's phone rang… "that's it, you got it, get that out there," said Strong.
Originally written for superstar Bonnie Raitt and released on "Stronghold II," Strong's last album co-produced & co-written by Eliza Neals. Eliza knew "Something's Better Than Nothing," would hit home in these troubled times. "Something's Better Than Nothing," is the second single from Eliza's forthcoming 11th studio album. The Detroit manufactures are; Mike Puwal (Alberta Adams, Kenny Wayne Shepherd) slide guitar [performed on the original], Jason Kott (Robert Randolph) on bass & Peter Keys (Lynyrd Skynyrd) on Wurlitzer 200a, it's a brotherhood. A touch of Nashville adds Tim Grogan (Desert Rose Band) on drums & recorded in Pentavarit analog studios by owner Bobby Holland and Mike Puwal.
The final mix spun by Mike Puwal and Eliza Neals inside Univox1 in Milton, FL with Dave Feeny (White Stripes) mastering at Tempermill Ferndale, MI. "Something's Better Than Nothing" crafted with the motor city hit maker, Barrett Strong Jr. and Eliza Neals.
