Joey Stuckey is a blind guitarist, singer, songwriter, composer, producer, radio personality, 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 a normal educational environment, not a school for the handicapped. Scholastically outstanding, Joey Stuckey, graduated from high school at the age of fourteen, while living in Jacksonville, Florida.
At the age of seventeen he began his musical career by taking classical guitar lessons from noted music professor Terry Cantwell, while attending classes at Mercer University where he obtained a minor in history and began working towards a double major in marketing and music.
At the age of twenty-one he released his debut album Take A Walk In the Shadows which has been highly acclaimed by those who have listened. Stuckey's intuitive knowledge about blending musical styles and sounds into a cohesive format that really speaks to the listener attracted legendary musicians such as Savannah's great bassist, Ben Tucker, violinist for Kansas and The Smashing Pumpkins David Ragsdale; guitarist for the Outlaws and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hughie Thomasson and many others to participate in his first project.
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, featuring music greats like Charlie Daniels, Derek St.Holmes (vocalist for Ted Nugent), Chuck Leavell (keyboardist for the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton), George McCorkle (guitarist for Marshall Tucker), Jeff Sullivan (drummer for Drivin N Cryin) and Jimmy Hall (harmonica, sax and vocals for Wet Willie) just to name a few.
