Jackie's Boy
R&B Artist
California, USA


Born in Savannah, Georgia, singer songwriter Carlos Battey, known as Jackie’s Boy, first fell in love with music at the young age of ten. Early in his career Carlos Battey (Jackie’s Boy) embarked upon his musical journey by singing on the piers of River Street in his hometown of Savannah, Georgia. He went on from there to write several #1 records, received four Grammy nominations, sold over 18 million albums, and won a Grammy in 2011 for Madonna’s best remix recording “Revolver” featuring Lil Wayne.

Jackie’s Boy credits his Mother as being the source of his love and inspiration for music. He often sneaked into his Mom's cassette tapes to listen to some of his biggest influences such as Michael Jackson, Prince and Fleetwood Mac. He feels these influences helped formulate his new sound of Progressive Soul, he defines as the sultry sounds of Rhythm and Blues with a contemporary energy.

Jackie’s Boy underwent a life changing surgery in December of 2016 to remove a tumor in his bottom right jaw known as Ameloblastoma. He credits his change of path to his solo singing career when he faced permanent paralysis of his mouth when undergoing this seven hour surgery. Jackie’s Boy who has now made a full recovery has focused his energy on his solo singing career to share with the world his love of music by releasing several singles that have topped the charts in Germany, Japan, U.S. and Canada. Jackie's boy has now found a new lease on life and wishes to touch the hearts and minds of the masses through his story of survival and the celebration of Life.
