Biography

Needham, Boston MA, United States ( 1999 – present)

Joseph Mulrey McIntyre, born 31 December 1972 in Needham, Massachusetts, was the youngest member of the 1980s supergroup New Kids on the Block.

Just before his 13th birthday, McIntyre joined New Kids On The Block, replacing Jamie Kelly. Since the other four members of the group were already long-time school friends, he initially found it difficult to blend into the group. However, New Kids on the Block became one of the most successful boy bands to date, eventually disbanding in 1994.

Following the group’s split, McIntyre busied himself with songwriting and sought a record deal. He also appeared in the movie The Fantasticks alongside veteran actor Joel Grey.

Disenchanted at his inability to find a recording contract, McIntyre used his own money to record a solo single, “Stay the Same”, and sold it on his website. He also took the single to local Boston DJs, helping it eventually to receive national airplay. The combination of airplay and website sales for “Stay the Same” led to McIntyre signing a recording contract in 1999 with Sony Music USA, which, under the Columbia label, had previously been home to New Kids on the Block. An album was released on the Sony Works label, accompanied by a re-released “Stay the Same” album; this featured the extra track “I Love You Came Too Late”, which became his second solo hit.

Also in 1999, McIntyre recorded a track for the film Southie, which starred former band mate Donnie Wahlberg. The song was titled “Remember Me”.
