Sun Star Records artist Joe Galaxy is anything but your typical musician. The multi-hybrid rhymer showcases a futuristic sound that crosses genres and delivers music that appeals to fans of techno, pop, rock and hip-hop. Influenced by everyone from Beethoven to Nirvana and Led Zeppelin to Lil Wayne, Galaxy got his break after meeting Still Hustlin’ CEO and flagship artist Renegade Foxxx at a radio station. Foxxx, an innovative star in his own right, was immediately drawn to Galaxy’s magnetism and passion for music. The two quickly began collaborating on tracks, birthing the infectious dance club anthem “Crazy Sexy” and the motivational “Bankroll”. Joe started 2013 dropping the smash hit single “Hot College Girl” in February. Joe continued 2015 by completing his album and double releasing “Walk It” Ft Pitbull & Renegade Foxxx and “Drinkin the Night Away”. 2016 is the year to be “Grateful” and release the debut album early Spring called the same: “Grateful”.
An accomplished actor who has appeared in various commercials and even an episode of America’s Most Wanted, Joe Galaxy will continue working on his craft as he pursues his career in music. With a few movie roles on the horizon, Galaxy will be making an impact on popular culture in every facet of entertainment. Galaxy is the definition of a modern entertainer, crossing boundaries and pushing the limits while still staying true to himself. Joe looks forward to dominating the rest of 2016 and introducing his sound to the world.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
JOE GALAXY: I was born in Georgetown, D.C. and raised in Alexandria, Virginia. D.C.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
JOE GALAXY: Well, I played the recorder in 4th grade and one time I bought a Steinway & Sons grand piano just because I could. It was always my life’s dream to own one. Other than that, in college I literally started with 2 turntables, a microphone, a DJ sound system and crates of old music records. I’ll never forget going through all those records looking for loops, drinking a 40 instead of studying. I used to DJ parties and clubs in college. I taught myself how to make beats and produce. I produced a 5 song demo tape, and I was told it was terrible, lol. But we all start somewhere, hahaha. But that lead me to making my smash single, Joe Galaxy “Drinkin the Night Away”. Also check out my latest promo video on my Youtube Channel, @1JoeGalaxy.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
JOE GALAXY: Because music is the answer fam! The power of one song, the power of music with the people is beyond comprehension but look at how it makes you feel good or sad, or confident. I love the process of creating something big and then sharing it with the world. Music is the ultimate challenge and the reward with friends and followers is equally worth it. I’m an actor too, but music is definitely where it’s at! It’s just plain fun and life it too short to not have a lot of fun. The feeling of having your music played on radio and in the clubs and people enjoying themselves and forgetting their perceived problems for a moment means they are in the moment. To have anything to do with that means I entertained and contributed to happiness.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
JOE GALAXY: My songs are about having fun, success, positivity, and winning at life. My song, “Bankroll” lyrics go, “Ain’t nuthin’ movin’ but my Bankroll, if your gettin money and your holdin your own, then you can join my party, welcome to my Galaxy, you can join my party“. This is a party for winners holding their own. That summarizes the whole movement. Let’s go! Also, my songs are about partying and having fun! I am a grinder, but I love to have fun. I say work hard and play harder. So my songs are about grindin’. Stay tuned for the release of my single, “Grindin By Myself” later in the year and the release of “I’m So Drunk”, It’s the hangover sequel to my current Gorilla single, “Drinkin the Night Away”.

If you ask me, I’m going to say I’m from Outer Space that’s why my name is Joe Galaxy. I am really down to earth and humble. I just try not to take myself too serious even though I am all about it and serious about my music career and putting out hit records. We are going to have fun and bring the party because we are winning over here.
