Previous Projects

Joey was born in Buffalo, NY to a pastor’s family in which music was integral. Growing up in and around Alabama and Tennessee, Joey’s formal education also involved playing in school bands and singing in vocal groups that he also arranged for. After a year and a half of college, Joey was asked by his brother, Mark Kibble, to consider replacing former member Mervyn Warren and joining the 10-time Grammy Award-winning vocal group Take 6, for which Mark was principle arranger. The decision seemed to fall into place, considering that Joey grew up studying his older brother’s arranging skills, and as a result, developing the necessary ear training for his own musical and vocal abilities. Joey returned to Oakwood University to finish his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in 2000 while simultaneously touring with Take 6. After 26 + years of experience in the music industry, Joey has had the privilege of working with musical greats such as Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Marcus Miller, Ray Charles, Al Jarreau, Don Henley James Taylor, and Sheryl Crow, to name a few. Take 6 has had the honor of performing for four sitting U.S. Presidents. Joey counts it a blessing to practice, as a living, one of his greatest passions... music.
