Michael Walenceus -- Director of Tours and Promotions at RGA Rec

A phenomenal effort from a man truly blessed by God.
Throughout my years in various bands, recording studios, concerts, radio stations, etc., I have come across many unsigned bands and artists who think they are the best. And we have all seen who the mainstream radio and media tout as the best. But I'm here today to tell you that Joey Stuckey really is the best. His talent is evident in this album, "So Far." The music is just great: classic song structure, guitar finesse that has been sorely lacking in today's music, and a powerful voice that cuts through this album with true emotion and power.

Tracks to listen to over and over again: "Hold" (16), "Take A Walk" (10), "My Sociology" (5), "Funny" (7).... Hell, listen to them all over and over again. You'll want to do it. You'll need to do it. Trust me. This is a "greatest hits" album in more ways than one.
