 Notes & Reviews
 
Trailing Joey Canyon's three decades of storied accomplishments in the country music and entertainment industries comes his greatest country music compilation to date. Joey weaves together genuine heartfelt down home values along with experiences and lessons gained from life in Los Angeles to the Rocky Mountains and Nashville. Into ten songs collectively titled 'Canyon Country'. His newest release is a collaboration with award-winning bass player and producer Curtis Stone of Highway 101. Singing at the age of eight and playing the guitar at 11, Joey Canyon began performing professionally in 1973, quickly earning featured billing in numerous NFL Video compilations alongside the likes of Hank Williams Jr., George Strait, Lorrie Morgan, Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, Reba MacIntire, Clint Black and Wynonna Judd. He's performed everywhere from local bars to his church, Mile High Stadium and Coors Field. Joey also contributed to a number of popular television series, national commercials, Viacom and PBS productions. Joey's lifetime accomplishments are wide-ranging - a professional singer and recording artist, songwriter, co-producer and co-director, voice-over artist and actor. In 1978, he was awarded Colorado's Governor's citation for writing it's anti-pollution song, 'Save Our Colorado'. In 1991, Joey co-directed and managed production and scripting for his starring video 'Take My Money', which later became the Most Added Country Music Video nationwide at top country music nightclubs for three consecutive months. Earlier in his career, Joey performed with his band Both Barrels, with upbeat solos and duets leading him to some of the most noted recording studios in America. Prior to this, he was recruited as a backup singer produced by legendary Cliffie Stone following his first stage performances at the world-renowned Palomino Club in North Hollywood. Joey was born in Los Angeles and grew up the eldest of six siblings raised of modest means. His musical influences span country's Waylon Jennings, Marty Robbins, Vern Gosden and Alan Jackson to Neil Diamond, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.
