Vocalist and harmonica player John Németh will be a featured guest on National Public Radio’s “Weekend Edition” program on Saturday, June 26th. Host Scott Simon will interview the Blind Pig artist and discuss and spin tunes from John’s latest album, Name The Day!
The dynamic singing sensation is reinvigorating vintage American rhythm and blues with his uncanny ability to skillfully blend retro and modern blues and soul into compelling music that is simultaneously old and new.
In the process, he’s drawing high praise from renowned music critics such as Lee Hildebrand, features writer for the San Francisco Chronicle and Living Blues, who called Németh “the most accomplished male vocalist of his generation traveling the blues highway today.” The Jazz-Blues Report said he “might be the best white R&B singer on the planet.” And the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette concurred, “he sings as well as any blue-eyed soul man on the planet right now.” Other critics say he recalls great R&B singers such as Otis Redding, Sam Cook, Jackie Wilson, and Solomon Burke.
