Here is what you need to know:
Veteran singer/songwriter Joey Canyon brings you a contemporary version of a traditional country music variety show. Originating out of Colorado, The Joey Canyon Show will feature performances and interviews from veteran country music artists including Mark Wills, TG Sheppard, Moe Bandy, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, as well as many other top artists from the country music industry.
Joey grew up with musical influences spanning from country’s Waylon Jennings, Marty Robbins, Vern Gosden and Alan Jackson to Frank Sinatra. With roots deep in country, Joey has established himself with a lifetime of accomplishments ranging from recording artist, performer, singer/songwriter to executive producer, co-director and actor.
In 1978, Joey was awarded Colorado’s Governor’s citation for writing its anti-pollution song, “Save Our Colorado.” Later in 1991, he produced, wrote and co-directed for his own video, “Take My Money,” which became the most-added country music video nationwide at top country music nightclubs for three straight months.
The show will exemplify the way Joey weaves together genuine heartfelt down-home values with the experiences he’s had growing up in a small town in California to 40 years in the Rocky Mountains and recording over 23 years in Nashville. Joey began singing at the age of 8 and playing guitar at 11. Did you know he had featured billing in several NFL videos alongside the likes of Hank Williams Jr., George Strait, Lorrie Morgan and Reba McEntire?
Special Guest for Wednesday, October 18, 2017: Morgan Riley Returns!
A Maryland native, Riley knew she was destined to be a singer from the start. A dream inherited by her grandmother, who also sang. At five, Riley began performing at weddings and anniversary parties and by 15, she was recording at a local studio. Confident in years of practice and experience gained in live and studio performance, she made the move to New York City at 18.
In New York City, Riley found herself regularly performing with a pop-R&B group and recording at the city’s legendary Hit Factory Studio. In a struggle to find her true sound, she moved back south to Greenville, South Carolina and began to perfect her country edge. “I’m generally undeterred by any type of hardship or roadblock. My mom and dad have been a huge inspiration when it comes to this. They won’t let me give up…” Auditioning for the Pride of Carolinas, she beat out 4,300 people and received single placement on the competition’s compilation album by Koch New York, featuring the best artists in North and South Carolina. Shortly after, she began working with producer Chris Clay (TLC) on her album Affinity. “Chris has always been such an incredible supporter of me and what I do and, of course, is an incredible talent. I so enjoyed working with him on Affinity. The album really represented where I was at the time… Still, I felt I had a bit more country in me that needed to come out.”
Affinity landed in the lap of veteran producer and engineer Frank Green, whose track record includes multiple #1’s and just as many gold and platinum albums. Riley met with Green, performed a few of her originals and was quickly signed to his label, Skytone Entertainment. “My whole life I’ve dreamed of being signed to a label by someone that believes in me and all I do. I’ve certainly found that in Skytone and Frank.” The deal was made sweeter yet when Riley and Green began writing together for Collage material – a writing relationship whose chemistry she describes as “off the chart”. Drawing inspiration from her top musical influences – everyone from Carrie Underwood to Alanis Morrisette, Evanescence to Jewel – has given her unparalleled flexibility when it comes to writing. “I find I can write any kind of genre. I’ve also taken bits and pieces from different genres and pulled them into my writing. Collage is very much a product of that.”
Morgan is currently in the studio recording her brand new EP fixed to release soon. Collage was a success with Riley being nominated for female country artist and breakthrough artist of the year in New Music Weekly national magazine and a few of her radio singles being number one in the country for country music on SoundCloud with over a million views. "I can't wait to see what's next! It's been such an awesome musical journey and I am so blessed to have amazing parents, a supportive family and awesome friends and fans. "SkyTone is a successful label who have always been supportive and help me find my country side. I love singing and I am so thankful God has given me this talent and I love sharing my music with you all!" Thanks for listening and supporting the music! Love you all!
