Dr. Joseph Akins has been deeply involved with music all his life. As a youth, he performed as a keyboard and saxophone player in his family’s country-rock band, and with a local-sensation pop-rock band from Chattanooga TN, called Blaze.
Joey (his nickname) attended college to study composition, electronic music and jazz piano eventually earning a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee and a Master’s degree from Radford University. Since that time, he has sustained a career in music and higher education with the release of eight solo albums and teaching at various colleges. Today, he divides his time between writing, recording and teaching as a tenured professor for the Department of Recording Industry at Middle TN State University. He earned a doctorate in education in 2006 but his wife still calls him Joseph.
