Joey Canyon is an artist that believes in performing music from the heart. Canyon’s vocal style is simple and direct. There’s not a lot of bells and whistles, as he prefers to draw on the deep emotion of the lyrics on his songs such as “I Can’t Live My Life Without You,” and “The Most Important Thing.”
Joey Canyon’s long-awaited second album, The Rhythm of Livin’, delivers the tearjerkin’ and boot-stompin’ strum of ageless, timeless, classic country – as country was meant to be. Canyon never disappoints, inviting his fans on a journey from the danceable “He’s Comin’ Back Home To Her For Good” to the soulful and heartrending “You Don’t Love Me Anymore” – a tune you just can’t help but play on repeat. Through it all, in traditional Canyon style, he props his feet up and embraces life’s trials with downhome sensibility – reflective in the wisdom of “Life’s Graduation” and his title song “Rhythm of Livin’”.
