Soul man John Nemeth has followed an unusual path. Born in Boise, ID, to Hungarian immigrant parents, he got his start singing at Catholic Daughters of America luncheons and made a living as a truck driver. But he always followed his muse. After living for a time in Oakland ("the most southern city on the west coast," he says), John relocated his family to Memphis last year to be closer to the birthplace of blues, soul, and rock `n roll. Though his rental truck broke down in Arizona en route, 2 days later he was at Scott Bomar's Electraphonic Studio with the Bo-Keys, cutting his new album 'Memphis Grease.
