John Németh had already established himself among the very top ranks of blues musicians and modern soul singers when he decided to break the mold with his new record, Feelin’ Freaky. Drawing from his strong influences in blues and R&B, as well as contemporary sounds in hip hop and rock & roll, Németh fearlessly crushes all barriers of style and genre with an album of original songs that defies all the usual pigeonholes. John’s songs are groove and melody-driven, laced with thoughtful lyrics and nuanced humor, and cover themes from social issues of gun violence and class values to the pure hedonistic joy of dancing, sexuality and marijuana. For this album John brought his new songs to his great touring band, the Blue Dreamers – Danny Banks on drums, Matthew Wilson on bass and guitar, and Johnny Rhodes on guitar – so they could hone the groove and finish building the album as a group. Under the simpatico guidance of Grammy-nominated producer Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), Feelin’ Freaky emerges as a modern personal masterpiece.
“I am so proud to announce the official release of my latest album Feelin’ Freaky on my new label, Memphis Grease Records! This has been a long time coming and is a huge milestone in my career. Feelin’ Freaky is an all-original album from the deepest reaches of my bag, produced by Luther Dickinson and performed by the Blue Dreamers along with the grooviest staples of the Memphis Scene. I have remixed, reformatted and remastered this album to meet my highest standards. Pre-order today and receive the title track “Feelin’ Freaky” to enjoy ’til this bad boy is fully released on May 19th. Available on 180 gram vinyl, MP3 and CD from all music retailers. Be sure to check out www.johnnemeth.com for my tour dates and awesome swag! Thank you for your support!” – John Németh

“There aren’t many true soul men left in the world, but John Németh is one of them” — James Joiner, Esquire Magazine
“John Németh proves a retro artist of a different stripe. The music has a driving, rock-n-soul punch that makes him seem spiritual kin to long-gone stompers Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Jackie Wilson.” — The Philadelphia Daily News
