On his debut album, Németh blows and bellows his way through a set of mostly original songs that crib a lot from the veterans. The soul of this music is dictated by the personality of the player, he says. You can really tell a lot about a man by his songs.
Németh was born in Boise, Idaho, where he grew up listening to AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. Then one day a friend played him some Junior Wells, Freddie King, and Little Walter. It was some of the most funky, gritty music Ive ever heard, he says. Németh gigged around Boise before settling in San Francisco a few years ago. Its the freedom of the music, he says. Its pretty badass.
