John Németh is a rising blues star; he is a singer steeped in the tradition and reminiscent of B.B. King, Ray Charles and Junior Parker, and a harmonica player of riveting intensity and virtuosity. His decade long career has found him opening for Robert Cray, Keb Mo', and Earl Thomas, as well as performing at major music festivals around the United States, Europe, Canada and Asia.
Németh was a featured artist with Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets in 2005 and 2006, and with The Junior Watson Band in 2002. He performed at the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival in 2002 and the Winthrop Rhythm and Blues Festival in 2003. In 2004 John recorded "Come And Get It" with the Junior Watson Band. And he later signed a multi-record deal with Blind Pig Records in 2006. His recent album Magic Touch—one of the most remarked upon releases of its year—was released in 2007.
