San Francisco musician John Nemeth may be an unknown in popular music circles, but in the blues world he's generating uncommon buzz. Nemeth recently signed to local label Blind Pig Records, and his third album, Magic Touch, was released on January 30. Blind Pig head Jerry Del Giudice has said, "In our nearly 30 years in the business we have never before offered a new artist a recording contract on the strength of one performance." We'll let the rest of the buzz -- and the music -- speak for itself. And don't forget his CD release party on March 1 at Biscuits & Blues.
