Although it was never released, “Sugar Daddy” throws back to the early days of Detroit’s original R&B/Soul. Written by Grammy™ winning legend and Songwriters Hall of Fame™ inductee Barrett Strong Jr. when he was just a teenager.
From a woman’s point of view, Eliza Neals‘ additional lyrics adds just the right amount of sweetness with tongue-and-cheek fun. In walks the handsome award-winning blues guitarist King Solomon Hicks as the featured artist.
Eliza Neals honors the gut-wrenching, soul-splitting intent the American roots of contemporary blues represents with inspired songwriting, live performances, and magic not seen in years. Guitarist/singer King Solomon Hicks has a fierce and distinctive style all his own.
We are proud to premiere their new summer single and official music video for “Sugar Daddy.”
