As the grandson of a famous songwriter in Mexico, Joalby comes by his musical talent honestly.
An accomplished composer and lyricist, he has written and/or produced material for Todd Evans of NBC's Fame, Candice Coleman of American Idol 2, & Veronica Stewart of Australian Idol 1 under his own label, Crazy Baby Records. He finds fulfillment in collaborating with other artists and his upcoming debut album "What's Done Can Not Be Undone" (set for release late 2011) will feature guest vocals from Leah Andreone, Skott Freedman, & former producer Jason Latendresse.
Yet the goals Joalby has for his music entail much more than performance and recording. While his "passion will always be in the arts", he says his "calling has always been in helping others. " The overarching goal is not to simply support a cause but to bring attention to social issues and the actual human suffering related to that cause. In a recent interview with V Generations, Joalby said, "[I find it] incredibly selfish of myself to stand by and not do anything with my gift to benefit others." Indeed, during the past few years, Joalby has proven that music can be used as a tool to reach out and touch the lives of the oppressed as well as serve as a catalyst to energize others in support of social causes.
Defying the concept of failure, Joalby has single-handedly launched or collaborated in support of several significant projects relevant to a wide variety of social causes tied to persecution of the human spirit, including diversity acceptance, anti-hate crime, and other LGBT-related issues. He is currently collaborating with Erik Eldenius (producer) and several established artists in the production of his new single, "Let There Be Love", in support of the NoH8 Campaign. Joalby describes himself as "one person wanting to make a difference and let people know that you don't have to be a celebrity or have million in the bank to make a difference."
