The Jackie Boyz is an American multi-platinum singer/songwriter tandem that consists of two brothers, Carlos Battey and Steven Battey. The Jackie Boyz were acquired by Universal Music Publishing as songwriters in 2009.

History[edit]

The Jackie Boyz were born and raised in Savannah, Georgia[1] where they began their music careers at the pier on River Street performing for the local people in their hometown. Their inspiration and love for music was instilled in them by their mother Jackie, hence the name. The Jackie Boyz was created by the brothers to recognize and carry on the name of their beloved mother. Devastated by the death of their father in 2003, tragedy lurked right around the corner as their mother Jackie died the following year. The loss of their parents influenced and motivated Carlos and Steven to leave Savannah, Georgia and pursue their music careers. The brother duo arrived in LA three years ago and they have been making a name for themselves in the music industry ever since.


In 2011, the duo won their first Grammy at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards for their contribution to the David Guetta One Love Club Mix of Madonna's “Revolver”.[1][2]
