Joey Clarkson is an internationally touring Pop/Rock/Country artist from Vancouver Island, Canada.
After returning to LA in early 2015 to write and record "Loving You is Breaking Me" with Publisher/Producer/Songwriter Steven McClintock (Los Angeles, 37 Records) and Producer/Songwriter Kevin Fisher (Rascal Flatts) Joey spent the remainder of the year on the road touring her new single throughout western Canada, and internationally in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Greece.
In 2010, Joey released her first full length self-titled album “Joey” and placed as a regional winner for Canada Music Week and Astral Media's 2012 National Competition RadioStar with her single "Get Out". In 2012, Joey completed a 12 day tour of the UK with backing vocalist Breanne Larson. Accompanied by videographer Chad Weber of VI multimedia, they documented the 12 day adventure meeting and interviewing several artists from the local music scene along the way. This footage became a documentary style film, which at the request of the BBC premiered at the BBC film festival in Norfolk later that fall. In the winter of 2012, Joey was chosen as the recipient of the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce Youth Leadership Award and was a 2013 Vancouver Island Music Award Nominee with her single "Johnny the Radio". Joey also was an ArtStarts Artist in the classroom, touring schools sharing her music and philosophy. Her second album "See You, Love You, Behave Yourself!" was released in 2013.
2016 is set to be a year filled with more national and international tour dates following the release of her new album with 37 Records later this fall.
