All Things Music with Joey Stuckey!
Hi Joey! Thank you for speaking with me today! Glad to be with you!
What have you been working on lately? Well, I have been working on some new T-shirts featuring my avatar, Blink, who is a blind stick figure with a guitar, sunglasses and cane. These shirts are silly and a lot of fun for fans and while I can’t take credit for drawing them, they are my idea for good merch that works with my brand and as Blink is a stick figure, they aren’t super expensive to produce making me and the fans happy LOL. Here's a link to check them out Joey Stuckey - Other Cool Stuff. I am also putting the final touches on my next album that will be out this year, most likely mid-September. The album is called “One Song At A Time” and it has been a little slow in coming out because of 2 factors. First, I have some songs that I co-wrote with my dear friend Charlie Hoskyns from the UK. Sadly, Charlie passed in 2017 and a few of the songs we recorded I don’t have the multi-tracks for so I am working hard to make our original demos as polished as I can! These songs are just a small fraction of the music on this record, but they mean a lot to me and I know music fans will love them like I do, so I just felt like it was time to share them.
How would you describe your work to someone at a dinner party that’s never heard it? Progressive Americana—a genre I totally made up, but it works LOL. Basically, it is eclectic and the Americana genre is a broad umbrella. I call it progressive as it has a lot of styles mixed together. it is rock based with lots of blues, a little country and some jazz influences.
What is your dream project? I have a lot of dream collaborations and a few of them I have actually accomplished, like working with my friends Randal Brambletthttps://open.spotify.com/track/0WMg4G6g3QiLxvtLy553S2?si=1166cd58a8244918 and Al Chez https://open.spotify.com/track/5xVRG5Yvj5DF8inaSGdmmT?si=ec67b01c79124a65, but would love to do something with Tony Levin and James Carter, just to name a few!!! I just love doing music either as a recording artist, session musician, recording engineer or producer! So, if you got a project, I am ready LOL!
What are you most proud of to date? Oh, so much to be grateful for, like getting a chance to be recorded on the Edison Wax Cylinder—https://youtu.be/qHbhxDY-EY8 And getting to learn from and become friends with Alan Parsons, and charting on the CMJ top 40 jazz charts at number 9 back in 2013 with my “Mixture” album, but the thing I most value is being there for other artists just starting their journey. I love being able to make their first experience in the music biz a great one!
What keeps you making music? I am not complete without it! It is a natural extension of my spirit!
