“Although this self-titled album is Love Light Orchestra’s debut album, it’s not too not much to say that this is one of the best albums of the year”

Living Blues, Dec 2018

The Love Light Orchestra album review page 38, Blues Review Dec 17 issue

“..It was a surprising delight to find another US bluesman with a high-energy, full-flow take on the blues and a widely admired confidence and power that took the crowd by both storm and surprise. John Nemeth was, for me, the true show-stealer. His set was blistering and perfectly pitched while his own songwriting talents were also clearly unmistakable, with much of the set featuring tracks from his current album, Feelin’ Freaky. Nemeth made the absolute most of his stage-time, ripping along with an assurance and style that was truly masterful. On this evidence, Nemeth is clearly a guy to catch and get to know..”
