Soul man John Németh has followed an unusual path. Born in Boise, ID, to Hungarian immigrant parents, he got his start singing at Catholic Daughters of America luncheons and made a living as a truck driver. But he always followed his muse. After living for a time in Oakland (“the most southern city on the west coast,” he says), John relocated his family to Memphis last year to be closer to the birthplace of blues, soul, and rock ‘n roll. Though his rental truck broke down in Arizona en route, two days later he was at Scott Bomar’s Electraphonic Studio with the Bo-Keys, cutting his new album Memphis Grease.  Memphis Grease is an aptly-titled, 13-track album, out on Blue Corn Music March 25. It’s slathered with fatback soul and blues done the Memphis way: tight horn lines, whirling organ with John’s soaring voice and wicked harp playing front and center.  Join us, just days before the release of Memphis Grease, for an insightful discussion with Nemeth, moderated by Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman, and exclusive performance.
