Joey Scarbury (born June 7, 1955, in Ontario, California) is an adult contemporary singer best known for his hit song, 'Theme from The Greatest American Hero (Believe It or Not)', in 1981. Growing up in Thousand Oaks, California, Scarbury was continually encouraged in his ambition to sing by his mother. At the age of 14, after being spotted by songwriter Jimmy Webb's father, he was signed to a recording contract with Dunhill Records. Scarbury's first single, 'She Never Smiles Anymore,' flopped, and he was soon without a record label. He stayed around the music business throughout the 1970s, first as a backup for artists like country artist Loretta Lynn, and occasionally recording his own material.
