John NmethJohn Nmeth is a rising blues star; 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. Performing major music festivals around the United States, Europe, Canada and Asia has brought him critical acclaim."Either John Nmeth is one of the greatest vocalists in the world or this was the best performance of his life, or both."Bob Horn, Washington Blues SocietyJohn's origins are an unlikely breeding ground for such an impressive blues talent. A thirty year old native of Boise, Idaho, he grew up singing in a Catholic church and started playing in local bands as a teenager.Hands down the toughest young harp player I've ever heard.Nmeth was a featured artist with Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets in 2005 and 2006 as well as a featured artist with The Junior Watson Band in 2002. The Cascade Blues Association selected Nmeth as a crowd favorite at the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival in 2002, and the Washington Blues Society called him the show stealer at the Winthrop Rhythm and Blues Festival in 2003. Greg Johnson of Blues Notes writes, "John Nmeth possesses rich harmonica tone that easily brings to mind Sonny Boy Williamson and Little Walter."
