Neal is a song-writer residing in Baltimore, MD. He has been called a "human chorus factory" and sings in The Great Heights Band and Origami Army.

The Great Heights Band was signed to a recording contract within a few months of releasing music independently, and since then, has toured the eastern half of the United States extensively and has shared the stage with the likes of Andrew WK, Unwritten Law, Punchline, Metro Station, Never Shout Never, Hellogoodbye, Vacationer, New Politics, Fenix TX and several other notable artists. The band won the "Emerging Artist Award" at the 2015 Milwaukee Summerfest by fan vote. TGHB released one album called "Songs in Eastern Standard Timing" in 2015, and the band's follow-up "rad-pop." is expected to be out in 2017 via CI Records.

Alternatively, Neal's side-project, Origami Army, has a much more ambient and reflective sound, with the band releasing their debut EP independently in 2017 called "What is and What Can Be."

Neal is influenced by the classics such as The Beatles, Elton John and Queen, but began learning music through the punk and grunge explosion of the 90s and early 2000s. His songs with TGHB have been compared to the likes of Weezer, Ok Go, The Rentals, Blink 182 and others. He's capable of writing original custom songs as well as covering fan favorites through either an acoustic or full-band arrangement.

Neal currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland, where he is also a lawyer and owner of a creative media company that creates content for businesses and brands.
