(Macon, GA) February 16, 2015  –  Joey Stuckey, Macon’s music ambassador, will be travelling to London for a 10 day tour in just a few weeks. The tour will include a two-day conference for visually impaired musicians on March 10 and 11. Joey will be performing and speaking during the conference. His single, ‘Blind Man Drivin’ will be featured as the theme song of the conference and released at the trendy Ivey House in London on March 12.

The Visually-Impaired Musicians’ Lives conference will be held at the University of London’s School of Education. Their mission is to “bring together visually-impaired performers, music teachers (sighted and visually-impaired), researchers concerned with visual impairment and music, representatives from the music industry and organizations in this arena. It will address key issues surrounding the musical participation and learning of visually-impaired people, including: music education and lifelong learning; participation choices and approaches to music; the relationship between musical approaches, musical genre and sight; and how technologies are shaping the music-making of visually-impaired people. These will be explored through presentations and performances.”

For many years, Joey has worked to improve the lives of those around him through music. Working to further the mission of enhancing music education remains Joey’s top objective. The conference has given Joey the opportunity to share his passion for music education. “As a blind person and brain tumor survivor, I have some limitations physically. But I am so excited to share [personal] inspirational insights with the University of London and the Blind Musicians’ Lives Conference attendees. My talk about living a successful life as a blind person and brain tumor survivor, making music education accessible for everyone, and a performance of original songs will be the finale of the conference.”

Joey’s single, ‘Blind Man Drivin,’ is the theme song for the conference. According to Doctor David Baker from the University College of London’s Institute of Education, “Joey's participation reflects his great enthusiasm for bringing musicians together and supporting the interests of visually-impaired artists across the globe. We are honored that he has dedicated his new song "Blind Man Drivin" to this event too, which is attracting visually-impaired musicians, specialist music teachers, people working for visual impairment charities, and developers of accessible music technologies from across the world. 


‘Blind Man Drivin’ was written by one of Joey’s closest friends and collaborators, Henry Oliner, who also appears on the ‘Blind Man Drivin’ music video.  The single will be officially released March 12 and the album with the same title will be released in September 2015.

While in London, Joey will be giving talks and performing at various venues. For more information about his tour, Gateway Macon will be featuring daily blogs and photos of Joey beginning March 9 through March 17.

Tueazee - I Know #Flyah Review

Tueazee is an exciting music group based in Augusta, GA, and they have been making music for about a year now.  Releasing music under the J Tizzle Muzic label, the group recently unveiled a new, exciting single titled “I Know.”The song is a great example of Tueazee’s pure and uncompromising combination of new and old-school hip-hop, making for a driven, direct and fast-paced feel that knows no compromises whatsoever. Their flow echoes the work of seminal performers such as Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Common or J Cole, bridging the gaps between the unmistakable tone of the 90s golden age and the modern feel.Ultimately, “I Know” stands out as a perfect combination of old-school hip-hop and modern punch, making for a striking, professional and world-class production value.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
