Joey the Jerk
|Info:||Joey the Jerk released his debut album "The Average Joe" in
2003. He's part of the crew LA Symphony.|
On March 20th, 2008 a MySpace bulletin was send out
promoting a new song on his media player. The demo track
"Why" is a soft pop track showing the new musical direction
For his new album he's been co-writing wih producer Otto
Price (from old DC Talk fame), Grant Harrison (John Reuben)
and Matt Dally (Superchick).
Joey's dream is a sublime combination of pop/fun energy,
hip-hop rhythm, and acoustic flavor, tempered by an
organically universal, Southern California chill vibe
expressed with singer-songwriter sensibility. It's an
eclectic mix that has one common denominator: Joey.
At the heart of Joey's dream is the desire that God would
use him, and be pleased with what he is doing musically and
in his life. After the disappointment at the closing of
Squint Entertainment months before the release of the L.A.
Symphony's first album Call It What You Want (2001), Joey
felt the need for a musical reinvention. In that moment, a
new dream, joey's dream, was birthed.
This dream would combine the candor and striving already
characteristic in his lyrics with the full breadth of his
musical influences. Music that would intrigue, exhilarate,
and compel whether enjoyed on the radio in the hustle of a
commute, chanted along with a full band in a packed stadium,
or sung a capella face-to-face.
On September 15th, 2009 it was announced Joey had a new
recordlabel for his solo project Illect Recordings.
