Born on a farm in Virginia and now based in LA, Lael Neale debuted with a traditional, country-esque strand of folk-pop in the late-’10s. In an attempt to unleash herself from more stereotypical song arrangements, her Sub Pop debut – 2021’s Acquainted with Night – strips production back and focuses on her poetic style of storytelling, which Mojo says “levitates with light and serenity.”
She still has a flip phone and there were no screens involved in the creation of her new record Star Eaters Delight which is out April 21, 2023 courtesy of Sub Pop Records.
She splits her time between rural Virginia and Los Angeles.
She loves walking, Emerson, fantasy fiction, espresso and not listening to music. She is an amateur gardener, painter and musician.
