about

Joey Sweeney has been writing songs and non-fiction since he was a teenager in the 1980s. Over the years, he has fronted the groups The Barnabys and The Trouble With Sweeney, as well as recording and performing as a solo artist.

Meanwhile, he’s also written for a wide array of publications, including Salon.com, Philadelphia Weekly, the Philadelphia Inquirer and his daily perch, Philebrity.com, a cityblog he established in 2004. His songs and records have received widespread critical acclaim over the years; of his last record with The Trouble With Sweeney, Fishtown Briefcase, Pitchfork said “[Sweeney] mixes autobiography and fiction against the group’s 70s-inflected indie pop, resourceful— and unabashed— enough to digress into an E Street interlude or an AM-rock guitar coda.” He’s also garnered curse and praise as a writer of prose, having won the AAN Award for Music Criticism and appeared in Best Music Writing 2002.

From 2004 through 2010, Sweeney mostly shied from performing and recording, focusing instead on his role as Publisher & Editor of the website Philebrity.com. In 2011, however, Sweeney stepped back into his old role of singer-songwriter, this time fronting the rock band Arctic Splash. Joey Sweeney Your Life Is Calling compiles the best of everything before the Splash.

In early 2013, Sweeney went on to record Long Hair, with Grammy award-winning producer Aaron ‘Luis’ Levinson, Lushlife aka Raj Haldar, and others. Long Hair is slated to be released in 2013 by the eclectic La Société Expéditionnaire imprint (home and spawning pool of Lewis & Clarke, Judson Claiborne, Strand of Oaks, Arc In Round).

*This album project is a collaborative release with BITBY.TV Philadelphia, PA
