He is a singer, songwriter, and an actor, best known initially from the music band New Kids on the Block, which he has been a member of since 1985.
Joey was raised in Jamaica Plain by Thomas McIntyre who was a union official, and Katherine Bowen who was a community theatre actress. Katherine died on 30 November 2014 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s, and Thomas died on 12 November 2018. Joey is the youngest among nine children. He attended the Catholic Memorial School in West Roxbury, Massachusetts and then became focused on his career as a singer. Joey joined the New Kids on the Block music band in 1985 when he was about to turn 13.
The band went on to become one of the most successful boy bands in the US, having two of their albums reach #1 on the US Billboard charts – by 1991, the band was making more money than Madonna and Michael Jackson. However, they split in 1994, only to reunite in 2008 and they have been performing since then. In 1995 not long after his band split, Joey launched his solo career and made his debut film appearance in “The Fantasticks”. His first solo album “Stay the Same” was funded by himself as he couldn’t find a recording contract, so he went on to sell it on his website. He signed his first contract in 1999 with Sony Music USA, and his album was released officially, with its lead single “Stay The Same” becoming popular worldwide.
His second album “Meet Joe Mac” was released in 2001, his third in 2003, while his fourth album “8:09” dedicated to his wife was released in 2004. His final album before the New Kids on the Block’s reunion was “Talk To Me”, which came out in December 2006.
Joey gained recognition as an actor when he played Jon in the “Tick, Tick… BOOM!” musical in 2001, and in 2002 featured in the “Boston Public” TV program. He starred alongside Mila Kunis in the “Tony ‘n’ Tina’s Wedding” environmental event in 2004 and then went on to compete in the “Dancing with the Stars” TV competition series. He has made several appearances in films and TV series throughout the years, some of which are “The Heat” action comedy film in 2013, “The Hot Wives of Orlando” TV series in 2014, and “Angel from Hell” film in 2016.
