For many people, John Németh is the best soul-blues voice in the world and a true virtuoso of the harmonica. Boise, in Idaho, is not an evocative place at all when we talk about soul music. But for John Németh is where his love for the genre began and the starting point of a trip that has taken him from his first concerts to get 5 nominations to the Blues Music Awards only in 2013, winning it in 2014 as best soul-blues artist of the world, and best soul-blues album in 2015.
He began his professional career in 1991, and after opening for Junior Watson, Németh toured with this guitarist for USA and Scandinavia, to end up getting into the recording studio and give shape to his solo debut in 2004, “Come and Get It” , with the help of Watson. Years later he moved to California signing a three album contract with Blind Pig Records. The Philadephia Inquirer was the first press media that included him in a list of new talents of soul with James Hunter, Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed, and Sharon Jones.
After recording with Elvin Bishop, he moved to Memphis, birthplace of soul and blues, where in early 2013 he landed in the perfect place: Electraphonic Studio, home of producer and musician Scott Bomar, where he recorded his new album with the support of The Bo -Keys and signed with the Blue Corn Music label.
His last steps have been to create his own record label to edit his future works, and record a live concert with the big band The Love Light Orchestra. An artist undoubtedly with concerns that do not allow him to stagnate and continue his way to the olympus of blues-soul.
