(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.

21 Savage - Hot Take on Cheating?

21 Savage was spotted on the Million Dollaz Worth the Game Podcast. He was asked to give a hot take on amid cheating topics. 21 starts off by giving his experience a light that was hidden from the public view for many of years. Back in 2016, 21 Savage was caught in an affair with Wiz Khalifa's now turned ex-wife Amber Rose.  21 also was in a committed relationship with a woman he since then had met on Instagram but this woman has since moved on away from 21 as forgiveness was not given to him.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
