“With ‘Take You Home’ I wanted to create a Pop/Dance record with some edge,” Neel said about his latest song. “It’s about meeting a girl and feeling an instant attraction towards her. You just want to spend more time with her, bring her home, and show her your world.”

He has been trained in Eastern and Western classical music and is skilled at playing the piano, keyboard, harmonium, tabla, drums, and guitar.
