International College Champion 2013 The Newfangled Four
Joey started singing in the seventh grade taking private voice lessons. At Edison High School in Huntington Beach, he sang in chamber choir, jazz choir, show choir, and the madrigal ensemble. He was put into his first quartet, Short and Sweet, in his freshman year in high school and since then he has never stopped singing barbershop music. He sang tenor in a high school quartet, Barberque Sauce, which placed second in both the Far Western District high school competition and the SoCal Novice Contest.
Joey is a dual member of The Westminster Chorus and the Masters of Harmony where he has earned several chorus Gold Medals. He says, “I decided, if I were a member of both choruses, it would only help to make me a better barbershopper in the end, and the resources that have been provided to me have proved to be very valuable.”
Joey has two International Collegiate Championships. One with The Vagrants in 2009 and the other with District Champs The Newfangled Four , both with Joey singing tenor.
Joey currently lives with the Bass and Lead of his quartet in a house that they rent in Lakewood. You can only imagine what kind of shenanigans those three get up to.
