Nemeth John- Memphis Grease (w/ the Bo-Keys)

John Nemeth was probably the only kid in Boise who grew up in the 1980s listening to Chicago blues... In the three decades since, Nemeth has transformed himself from a fan to a modern soul-blues purveyor of the highest order, receiving five Blues Music Award nominations in 2012 and two in 2013, including the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year award. It's a journey that took him to San Francisco, then Oakland, California, followed by a relocation to the birthplace of blues, soul and rock-and-roll.......Memphis. He landed in the perfect place: Electraphonic Studio, home of producer and musician Scott Bomar, who composed the film scores for ''Hustle & Flow'' and ''Black Snake Moan' and produced Cyndi Lauper's ''Memphis Blues.'' Support by the Bo-Keys...... Bomar's group of veteran Memphis performers who made their names backing the likes of Al Green, O.V. Wright, Rufus Thomas and the Bar-Kays, Németh quickly laid down thirteen tracks that as he describes it, ''Live in the style like I live in the style.'' That style is a deeply forged amalgamation of scorching harmonica-driven blues and sweet blue-eyed soul ala The Box Tops or Roy Head, delivered via two fistfuls of originals and a trio of carefully chosen covers...................
