Joey Batts - Everbody's Best Friend
Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Joey Batts is one of the most recognizable faces in Connecticut’s hip-hop scene. This is, in part, because you can see his smiling face on just about any telephone pole, or road sign, in the eastern half of the state thanks to his “Joey Batts is your best friend” promo sticker. Batts is about more than promotional tactics, however, as he and his band, Joey Batts & Them, have been making a name for themselves with their combination of hip-hop aesthetics and hard rock sound. Whether he draws a listener in with a freestyle about what the people in the crowd have in their pockets, or someone is digging a drum solo, the band’s goal is to have something for everyone, and have all of it be great.

This week, I caught up with Batts to find out more about his music, his latest album, Bowtie Chronicles, and the insanity of attempting to film at every landmark in the 860 area code for his video for “860.” Batts also revealed the ups and downs of being everyone’s best friend, which is not as easy as you might think!

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
