Blind Chart Topping Producer Joey Stuckey Releases All-Female Southern Artist Compilation

Macon, GA – Blind producer Joey Stuckey, the official Music Ambassador for his hometown of Macon, Georgia—a true music city—has released an all-female musical compilation, “Joey Stuckey Presents Ladies of the South”, that encompasses twelve incredible artists that he has produced over the past 6 years.

Stuckey’s roster of musical legends with whom he has worked includes Alan Parsons, Chuck Leavell, Jimmy Hall, The B-52s, Mike Mills (REM), Trisha Yearwood, Hughie Thomasson (Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Outlaws), and many others.

The decision to release this compilation was made after Stuckey’s co-writing the album’s feature song “What You See Ain’t What You Get” with Charlie Hoskyns (The Popes), Will Morrison (Modern English), and Paul McGuinness (The Pogues). Says Stuckey, “We wrote this amazing song about incredibly strong women and loved it so much that we had to record it. We chose long-time friend and Georgia treasure Sue Wilkinson (aka Sue Lu) to perform the lead vocals on this track. We needed the attitude of Janis Joplin and the vocal chops to go with it and Sue was the perfect woman to bring the song to life. After ‘What You See Ain’t What You Get’ was completed, I realized that I knew and had worked with so many amazing female artists across all genres that it was time to share that talent and ‘Joey Stuckey Presents Ladies of the South’ was born.”

Whether you are a fan of rock, pop, singer/songwriter, country, or contemporary Christian, this compilation has it all!

The artists and songs included in this southern exposé are:
1. The Shadow Bandits featuring Sue Lu “What You See Ain’t What You Get”
2. Kim Meeks “Everybody’s Pretty”
3. Hugh Hession featuring Camille Scoggins & Sue Tomlin “Start Over”
4. Someday Merry featuring Eline Chavez “With You”
5. Vanessa Moses “Danish Cookies Is My Name”
6. Tyler Moore featuring Camille Scoggins “Box Labeled Questions”
7. Katherine Daniel “Lonely Boulevard”

Genre Busting Blind Guitar Legend and Producer Joey Stuckey To Release New Audio Described Video

Macon, GA – On June 11th, blind guitar legend, recording artist and producer Joey Stuckey was named Jazz Artist of the Year at the 5th annual Georgia Music Awards. Never knowing how to slow down, Joey is busy working on a variety of projects including writing music with his good friends from the UK Charlie Hoskyns (The Popes), Will Morrison (Modern English) and Paul McGuiness (The Pogues).

However, currently Stuckey is most eager to share his latest music video which has been audio described for the blind.

“To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time a music video has been audio described or narrated for the blind. There have been a hand full of movies, like ‘The Passion of the Christ’ but, I’ve never heard of a music video getting the same treatment,” says Stuckey.

Audio description takes a narrator telling the story of what is happening on the screen. It is kind of like an audiobook, but in this case, it is directly relating the story being told by pictures or video in spoken word form so that the blind can also enjoy the antics and adventure of Joey and his band as he desperately tries to get to his concert. Complete with a thrilling car chase, this video is a lot of fun to watch and the blues guitar and vocal prowess of Stuckey can’t be denied.

Special thanks to Delaney Holliman and Doug Diamond for the video production and friends Nash and Jenny Mayfield for writing and narrating the video.

The video and single “Blind Man Drivin’” were released last year while Joey was on tour in the UK, where the song was the official theme song for the first ever Visually Impaired Musicians’ Lives Conference, which took place at the University College of London.

Macon Blind Guitar Legend Joey Stuckey Working On New Blues Album Feat. Chuck Leavelle, Jimmy Hall and Renowned Producer Ross Hogarth

Macon Blind Guitar Legend Joey Stuckey Working On New Blues Album Feat. Chuck Leavelle, Jimmy Hall and Renowned Producer Ross Hogarth

Macon, GA – Joey Stuckey is a blind guitarist, producer, educator, recording artist and media personality.

Born in Green Cove Springs FL, a city that has honored him with the key to the city and now residing in Macon GA, for whom he is the official music ambassador, Joey Stuckey is a power house of music talent. He has worked with icons from Alan Parsons to Ted Nugent and Joe Solo, producer of Macy Gray to Sammy Nestico, arranger of the Count Basie orchestra.

Last year saw him take on the UK where he toured and released his latest single “Blind Man Drivin’”.

The song and it’s accompanying video was a runaway hit and became the official theme song for the Visually Impaired Musicians Lives Conference, held at the University College of London where Stuckey was also a keynote speaker and performer.

While in the UK, Joey also became friends with research teams from Queen Mary University of London and Goldsmith’s University and has worked with them extensively to improve music technology for the blind. As a blind person, a studio owner, producer and professor of music technology at Mercer University, this was a roll Stuckey took on with ease.



2016 is already shaping up to be a land mark year as Joey prepares to release the full length album “Blind Man Drivin’” in early summer.

Says Stuckey, “Music is the thing that makes me know I am a live. It is my spiritual bread and butter and the best way I know to encourage and provide comfort and inspiration to others, while at the same time entertaining and sharing stories about who I am. When I first started making my own music it was a combination of southern rock sensibilities mixed with bands like The Smiths and The Cure, I used to think of myself as the Morrissey of Macon. I have played a lot of jazz and my jazz album ‘Mixture’ was number 9 on the top 40 CMJ jazz charts for 5 weeks back in 2013, but, the thing that really seems to enthrall my audiences is blues and that is now what I am focused upon.”

And no wonder that blues is what Stuckey fans want to hear! With his versatile voice that can whisper or shout with equal alacrity and his guitar playing that can make one note cry or explode like a super nova with seemingly a thousand notes a second, blues is Stuckey’s true calling.

To make this debut blues project truly memorable, Stuckey is working hard to gather old and new friends alike to add some truly one-of-a-kind performances.

These artists include:
Ross Hogarth – Producer (John Melloncamp, Van Hailen R.E.M…)
Chuck Leavelle – Keyboards (Rolling Stones, Alman Brothers, Black Crows…)
Jimmy Hall – Sax and harmonica (Wet Willie, Jeff Beck, Hank Williams JR…)
Shannon Forest – Drums (Toto, Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts…)
Additional drums by Brandon Khoo, Maypex endorsed artist.
Charley Hoskyns – Bass guitar (Shayne McGowan, The Popes and Pete Maher…)

Macon Guitar Legend Joey Stuckey Receives Prestigious Award, Gains New Endorsers and Composes Radio Theme Song

12/5/2011 – Macon, GA – Truly one of the hardest working people in the music industry, 2011 has been a landmark year for blind recording artist, engineer, producer and inspirational speaker Joey Stuckey. With the release of his latest acclaimed CD ‘The Shadow Sound’ in February of this year, Stuckey has been hitting the road performing and speaking all over the country – October alone saw Stuckey in Hawaii, Los Angeles and Nashville. However, October was a landmark month because Joey was honored by a non-profit organization in his hometown of Macon, Georgia where he serves as the official music ambassador. The organization “New Town Macon”, a non-profit tasked with revitalizing the downtown area of Macon, presented Joey with a special recognition award for his contribution to his community. Joey has been instrumental in shaping Macon’s musical landscape. Stuckey was also recognized for his active role in preparing for Macon’s future.

“I’m honored to be recognized for my efforts in promoting the music and history of Macon,” says Stuckey. “I look forward to being of service to my community for the rest of my life. I feel like this area, and Macon in particular, has as much musical talent as New York City or Los Angeles. We just have to find a way to make sure the rest of the world knows about it and come together as a community to ensure our musical economy continues to prosper!”

Stuckey’s father accepted the award on Joey’s behalf, from Greg Dent, a New Town Macon board member. Dent presented the award and said: “As Macon’s first official ‘Ambassador of Music’, Joey is a tireless and enthusiastic promoter of downtown, whose life work advances the city’s musical legacy. Joey’s business, Shadow Sound Studio on Third Street, brings musicians from around the globe to downtown Macon to record. Several of (Joey’s) own recordings have been nominated for Grammys. Joey is a band leader, educator, and promoter of civic activities who leads with a powerful and generous spirit. He has donated his time and talent to area schools and local organizations and recently provided a young boy in hospice care with his wish of recording in Joey’s studio. Anyone who knows Joey Stuckey knows that his enthusiasm and love of Macon never waivers.”

While October was a busy month with many exciting and amazing events for Stuckey, November has also been busy and a month of growth. First, Joey welcomes two new endorsers to the family. To enhance his studio and live performances and take his music production ability to the 23rd century, Joey has partnered with Misa Digital makers of the “Kitara”. “The Kitara is one of the most remarkable instruments to come out since the advent of the electric guitar,” says Stuckey.

This amazing MIDI controller gives guitarists new and innovative ways to make music both live and in the studio. For more information please visit http://www.misadigital.com, http://www.facebook.com/misadigital, twitter: misadigital, YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/misadigital

To add even more reasons to come out to one of Joey’s live performances, Joey has partnered with Kazoobie Kazoos. “As the official ambassador of music for Macon, Georgia – the birthplace of the kazoo – I am thrilled to partner with Kazoobie Kazoos to provide a limited number of souvenir kazoos to be given away and used during the audience participation parts of my concerts and inspirational talks,” says Joey. “I am excited that my fans will have this unique souvenir and fun musical instrument which truly allows us to share the gift of music! As a blind musician, sound is the only thing that I care about and Kazoobie Kazoos are unparalleled in their tonality and quality construction.” For more information or to acquire your own Kazoobie Kazoo go to http://www.kazoos.com

Stuckey’s studio records theme song for Talent Watch Radio: “We are proud to be working with Talent Watch, the fastest growing source for new talent discovery on the internet! It’s like ‘American Idol’ but better – and a great way for talent bookers, record labels, management firms and artists to connect.” Joey Stuckey, recording engineer, producer and owner of Shadow Sound Studio, was hired to compose and record the Talent Watch theme song being used to audio brand the Talent Watch radio show. Joey was also used to produce the most current episode of the radio show http://soundcloud.com/talent watch/talent watch-radio-show and train the staff of Talent Watch on producing future episodes of said show. Stuckey also has his voice heard in the intro of the show and the various promos for the show, both video and audio and throughout the program between songs branding the show.

Says Hugh Hession, Talent Watch radio host and partner of TalentWatch.net, “Talent Watch Radio decided to record and produce our latest show at Shadow Sound Studio with owner Joey Stuckey. We chose Shadow Sound because of Joey’s reputation of being a results-oriented engineer and producer. He understood our vision and was able to transform that into the caliber of show we desired. Talent Watch highly recommends Joey to anyone who wishes to up their game.” To check out Talent Watch and what it has to offer to both artists and industry pros alike visit: http://www.talentwatch.net
