Joey Fatone was born in Brooklyn New York, to Phyllis and Joseph Anthony Fatone, who is an actor and musician. He is of Italian descent. At age 13, his family moved down to Orlando Florida. After graduating from high school, he started to work at Universal Studios. There, he met a co-worker named Chris Kirkpatrick. Joey also became friends with a member of The All New Mickey Mouse Club (1989) named JC Chasez. In 1995, he was at a club and ran into Chris, JC and a another guy named Justin Timberlake. They started a singing group, but something was missing and so Justin called his vocal coach and got Lance Bass. So, Joey became a member of the dude-group called *NSYNC. Since his NSYNC days, Joey has branched out into film acting roles, co-starring in My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002), and appearing as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars (2005).

His much anticipated solo single and music video for “Smoke” is out now! “I know that music heals, it’s saved me time after time, so it makes sense for me to make the music I love, with a full heart, and hope that it does the same for people who find joy in these songs. This is the best chapter of my life and I can’t wait to share it.”
