El Camino Real

CD of Joey's fifth release "El Camino Real."

El Camino Real de los Tejas is on an old, well-worn road anchored by Louisiana on one end and old Mexico on the other. Once known as “The King’s Highway,” this thoroughfare springs from Louisiana’s west central side, arcs downward through the Brazos Valley, winding southwesterly through the Texas Hill Country, until it ultimately rests in Mexico City. I find it uncanny how the road parallels my life’s journey.

The songs on El Camino Real capture the hopes, disappointments, discoveries, and goodnesses I’ve experienced on my own “royal road.” As you journey onward, may you discover truths that set you free, good friends who stick closer than family, and revelations of love and life that leave you reeling with the beauty of mystery, and with a hope that inspires a continual child-like curiosity.

Much peace and love to you, - Joey McGee

Released 2017. The fourth independent release, this album is the Texas-based songwriter's deeper dive into an Americana sound that is seasoned with classic country cadence, gritty rock, high-up-on-the-hill bluegrass, spicy zydeco, and the good ole gospel.

Love Is The Way

Joey McGee

MUSIC is language. Transcending the mind and moving stealthily beyond intellect, it strikes the heart and renders you senseless, catapulting you to plains of euphoria and arresting you in realms of another world. I LOVE MUSIC. It has been a friend in dark hours, a sage to my ignorance, arevealer of truths, an exposer of lies, a brother in the call to war, a sister speaking peace to my anxiety.

MY HOPE is that these songs bless you as music has me. May you be filled with peace; may your lies be exposed; may your truths be revealed; may you live; may you laugh; may you long. Ultimately, I hope you learn to live a life of love - Love Is The Way!

LOVE & THANKS TO: Elohim, for grace, mercy and guidance; Christine, for love, growth, friendship and learning; Steve Carr – you da man! You really are a master musician and engineer! Shirley Carr, for putting up with noisy late nights; Michael Holleman, Skot Jakubiec, Randy Watkins, Billy Hue, Karl Rehn, & Kyle O’Connor - Wow - I’m blessed to have worked with such awesome musicians! Randy & Greta Watkins, for introducing me to the art community in the Brazos Valley; Greg Tivis, for connection, encouragement and just awesome playing! Tim & Kristin Douglass - for awesome photos and conversations; Heather Morrison, your creativity rocks! Adam Saenz, Jacob Kail, Mark Douglass, Shawn McGee for coffees, cigars, conversations, and encouragements; Restorative Dreams, Douglass Gathering, & Community Church for deconstruction, healing . . . and being groovily weird! Pittsburgh & Ohio Families and Friends - you are loved and missed; Those Whose Names I Missed - I am sincerely sorry, but I love and thank you; YOU who are reading this and bought the CD - THANK YOU!

Peace, Love, and Groove! Joey McGee

Alive and In The House

This recording was captured on a crisp & cool Texas night at the home of my good friend - more a brother, really - Adam Saenz (aka Lou). Being a live recording, this CD captures all of the nuances of such an event: forgotten lyrics, wrongly-played chords, songs sung out of tune, and mindless bantering with the audience and your fellow musicians. It all comes with the territory of the live experience. What else can I say? We tried ☺

Hopes & Prayers: In all things it is my sincere hope and prayer that you gain peace, restoration, and connection with some really cool people who become like a loving family to you. May you also experience the joy and freedom we experienced during both our brief visit with friends and the night of the concert. May you reach that place of resolve to deal with your fears and, thereby, begin to experience life in all its fullness.
