At age 4 Joey began singing alongside his father, the late Cousin Joe, who was one of Michigan's premier acoustic entertainers. Joey's mother (Jeri) was a full time nurse, singer and actress - he grew up watching both his parents on stage.
Around Age 5 Joey started playing piano, at age 7 he settled on the guitar. In middle school he started playing with his father in bars and clubs around Michigan, and they continued to play together as a father son duo for the next 10 years. After his fathers passing in 2005, Joey took some time off from music. He then returned with a newfound passion in 2007, started a band, and performed as a solo acoustic entertainer - just like his father taught him, and he never looked back!
Red Tail Lights is the soundtrack of a life long road musician. The album reflects on love and friendship, heartache, and struggles with drugs and alcohol - with a dash of social commentary. It tells a story of coming to terms with decisions you've made and the cards you've been dealt. The 10 song album was recorded at Michigan's Rustbelt Studio, with engineer/producer Steve Lehane. Joey's looking forward to its release in 2024.
"It's my life in music. I put everything I have into this record. Holding the mirror right in front of my face and not holding back. I think people will relate to the music, there's a little something for everyone."
- Joey Spina
