Listen to: So Far (Joey Stuckey)

Joey Stuckey is an award-winning blind guitarist, songwriter, singer, composer, producer, radio personality, teacher, and sound engineer. Stuckey lost his sight and sense of smell as an infant as the result of a brain tumor. Despite these limitations, he remained in mainstream education. Scholastically outstanding, Joey Stuckey graduated from high school at the age of 14.

At the age of 17 he began his musical career by taking classical guitar lessons from noted music professor Terry Cantwell, while attending classes at Mercer University. Joey has also studied with renowned jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan.

At the age of 21, he released his debut album “Take a Walk in the Shadows” which has been highly acclaimed. Stuckey has subsequently opened his own digital recording facility called Shadow Sound Studio and has hosted three radio programs dedicated to preserving and promoting Georgia music.

His current album entitled “So Far” is a collection of the favorite songs from the previous four records with two new tracks. Stuckey’s classically trained chops and great ear have been acclaimed by the Atlanta Society of Entertainers with their Recording Artist of the Year Award in 1999, the Little Jimmy Dempsey Award for Musical Excellence in 2000 and 2005, and the Jazz Artist of the Year in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005. He won the Cotton Carrier Award in 2000 from the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame for his numerous contributions to the Georgia music community. Stuckey won the 2004 Reader’s Choice Award in the Eleventh Hour Magazine for best singer/songwriter. Joey has been featured in many national and international media publications including PRI’s “The World”, GPB’s “Georgia Gazette”, and “Big Takeover Magazine”.

In short, Joey Stuckey is a young man with an enormous talent, clear vision, and a tireless work ethic who is well respected by his peers, fans, and even a few legends.

Review from CDBaby.com:

Reviewer: Michael Walenceus -- Director of Tours and Promotions at RGA Rec
Throughout my years in various bands, recording studios, concerts, radio stations, etc., I have come across many unsigned bands and artists who think they are the best. And we have all seen who the mainstream radio and media tout as the best. But I'm here today to tell you that Joey Stuckey really is the best. His talent is evident in this album, "So Far." The music is just great: classic song structure, guitar finesse that has been sorely lacking in today's music, and a powerful voice that cuts through this album with true emotion and power. Tracks to listen to over and over again: "Hold" (16), "Take A Walk" (10), "My Sociology" (5), "Funny" (7).... Hell, listen to them all over and over again. You'll want to do it. You'll need to do it. Trust me. This is a "greatest hits" album in more ways than one.
