    Jackiem Joyner – Church Boy

    Born in Norfolk VA and raised in a single-parent household in Buffalo NY, Jackiem Joyner came through the church choir before taking up the saxophone in high school. After high school Joyner returned to Norfolk. There Bishop Michael Patterson of the World Harvest Outreach Ministries in Newport News made him head of the music department. Joyner not only sharpened his musical and production skills in this capacity, he also had a chance to play for audiences in Nigeria, Sudan and Kenya on a Missions trip in 2002.

    “Church Boy stems from my time as a young and eager boy who wanted to play a part in the music ministry. I can remember very well a time when I couldn’t wait until church service was over so I could get a chance to bang on the instruments! One day the pastor of my church told me that I was going to learn an instrument and be very involved in the Gospel ministry. I had no instrumental ex¬perience and had no idea what he was talking about. Church Boy takes me and the audience back to church. Although my previous albums are in the ‘jazz or smooth jazz’ genre, I have always believed that my music comes from God. Every new talent that I acquire, I make it a point to dedicate it to my Father God and Lord Jesus Christ. This album will confirm my place in the music ministry of God.”

    Church Boy features a collection of contemporary Gospel songs including Toby Mac’s “City On Our Knees,” Israel & New Breed s “You Are Good” and Kirk Franklin s “Hosanna.” Kirk Whalum joins Jackiem on Kirk Franklin’s “I Smile” and Jonathan Butler plays the lead acoustic guitar on Tye Tribbett’s “Bless The Lord (Son Of Man).”
