Leave The Light On

Though born from the desire to rekindle enthusiasm for the grand, orchestral sound of mid-20th century blues, Love Light Orchestra is much more than a nostalgia act.

Though born from the desire to rekindle enthusiasm for the grand, orchestral sound of mid-20th century blues, Love Light Orchestra is much more than a nostalgia act. Formed in 2016 as a nod to the sound and visual flair prevalent early in careers of beloved Memphis stalwarts B.B. King and Bobby Bland, the Love Light Orchestra is as much a manifestation of the current moment as it is a throwback to a bygone era of nightclubs packed to the brim with partygoers eager to take in an evening of down-home musicality with a touch of class.

Completion of Leave the Light On, the group's studio debut, reflects three years of sheer determination to coordinate schedules of a group consisting of Memphis’ most in-demand artists, in addition to navigating the unforeseen impact of a global health crisis on the entire music industry. Though the maturity and dexterity of the orchestra members shone loud and clear on the group's first release, the sophomore effort refines and elevates the group’s presentation, employing clarity and quality complementary to the veteran musicianship within Love Light’s ranks. Tossing the songbook aside in favor of mostly original tunes, Love Light proves their staying power and reinforces an outlook pointed toward the future while honoring the context of their collective musical past.

According to Németh, “I am excited to be working with Nola Blue. The band and I had a ball cutting this record. I love the thrill of cutting live to a tape machine like all my favorite classic records. This young band is truly inspiring and have the experience to back me up. I felt the need to cut loose after rising from a crippling injury and struggling to stay positive through these trying times. My fans have been so good to me, it’s really unbelievable. I’m so grateful to share this record with the world right now. Enjoy!”

MAY BE THE LAST TIME

"The aptly named May Be the Last Time, along with being a great recording, is a testament to the warmth and communal sharing of the blues community. Responding to a possible career-ending and life-threatening illness, John's West Coast brothers of Kid Andersen’s Greaseland community stepped up for what could have been his last recording. As of this writing, those prayers have thankfully been answered ...  The album has already skyrocketed to the top of charts and is sure to earn multiple BMA nominations. Kudos to Andersen and crew for stepping up in a big way.
- Jim Hynes,Making A Scene
 

"A wonderful album of blues and soul that carries an extra poignancy knowing the circumstances. This May Be The Last Time…I fervently hope it’s not but, should it prove to be, it’s a remarkable swan-song. When John does make his comeback, it presents a problem for him…top this one John!"
- Tom Dixon, Bluesdoodles


“Wow – what an album this is!  I think everything worked the way it should for this group of players to create very traditional blues with the energy & skills hoped for in the 21st century roots artists.” 
- Dave Gallaher
Talkin’ the Blues with Microwave Dave


John Nemeth’s righteous pipes and respectable harp are bolstered by an energized vocal chorus and “up” vibes all around on a set of mostly covers.”
- Duane Verh, Roots Music Report

 

 

LEAVE THE LIGHT ON

“The album is an enticing nod to nostalgia, with a vintage, ‘50s retro feel.  This band really wants to turn on its love light and let it shine on you (any band hip enough to name their group after Bland’s 1961 hit can’t be wrong, can it?).  Listeners will be more than pleased to bask in the glow.”
- Wayne Goins, Living Blues
 

“On this recording, Nemeth is at the top of his form as a singer and matched by Franklin’s handsome arrangements and superb band backing. Leave the Light On is outstanding.”
- Ron Weinstock, Jazz & Blues Report 
 

“John Nemeth is a highly experienced and well respected vocalist and here he is backed by a nine-piece band of seasoned Memphis musicians … great stuff!  All lovers of B.B. King, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Big Joe Turner, and Junior Parker, etc. will enjoy this fine album.” 
- Dave Drury, Blues Matters
 

“I usually try to avoid hyperbole, but every cut on this album is just terrific.  This record is simply chocked full of splendid and authentic Memphis-style blues and soul.  I can’t recommend this album enough … I imagine, given the energy and potency of the record, The Love Light Orchestra is absolutely killer live.”
- Randy Murphy, Cascade Blues Assoc.

 

 

STRONGER THAN STRONG

"What a hell of a record!   Stronger Than Strong is already in my personal list of the best albums of 2020!" 
- Philip Verhaege, Keys and Chords
 

"...mingling evocative balladry with tunes that kick up a righteous ruckus ... no question here: when he called this one Stronger than Strong, Nemeth wasn't pulling our legs." 
- Living Blues
 

"His soulful tenor voice and fierce harp work are present in full force on Stronger Than Strong, and the two-time Blues Music Award (BMA) winner and multi-BMA nominee has never sounded better or more urgent. ... John Nemeth is a modern master of American music and this is his mightiest record yet.  Highly recommended." 
- Rock and Blues Muse 
 

"Even when he was fighting a mysterious infection last fall that had him bedridden and more recently, sidestepping the ongoing Covid pandemic, Nemeth managed to create one of the most impressive albums of his career ... an uplifting roots blues outing." 
- Metronome Magazine
 

"John Nemeth has a blues tour de force with his tenth and latest album release, Stronger Than Strong.  Nemeth's albums are constantly evolving, showcasing songwriting with wit and social wisdom, mixing irresistable dance grooves and soulful ballads." 
- Laura Carbone, Elmore Magazine
