Personal life[edit]

Neale was born on a farm in rural Virginia.[3] In April 2020, Neale left Los Angeles at the start of the pandemic, returning to the family farm in Virgina. "Looking at the world from a distance and getting in tune with her own rhythms, she wrote and recorded steadily for two dreamlike years, driven by a need to make order out of chaos. Forged in isolation, Star Eaters Delight is a vehicle for returning, not just to civilization, but to celebration," according to bio section of her website. [7]
