A Beautiful Purity to his Voice."    - ****   BROADWAY BABY  -Edinburgh

"So Much Soul and Edge for a young man. If you put Jonny Lang, Chris Robinson, Diesel and perhaps me in a blender you'll get a powerful cocktail for sure. But nothing will prepare you for the New taste of Old Soul that is John McNamara." - ERIC MARTIN (MR. BIG Vocalist)


Australian Soul / Blues Artist John McNamara is set to release his Debut Album mid 2013.

Taking Cues from soul Greats such as Otis Redding & Sam Cooke mixed with Fiery Blues and slick Guitar playing makes John McNamara the artist to watch.
