Joe Uveges has meandered the path of quiet musical anonymity on Colorado's front range for more than 18 years now. Raised a farm kid in Schoharie New York, pummeled by liberal academics at Union College and Catholic University, a grizzled veteran of bar bands and coffeehouses, he should be a burned out skeleton of a man playing Allman Brother covers, tipping lukewarm Coors from a can, and lamenting broken marriages and illegitimate kids. He is not.
His woefully-quirky folk anthem "Self Employment Swing" sets the stage forWorkaholics Anonymous, and while the song manages to maintain an unwavering sense of humor right up to the final chord, beneath its bubbly surface is the constant unease of a real-life workaholic.

Gooey is Chicago's unique power-pop quintet led by singer/songwriter Juan Avila. Their laid-back vibes coupled with the energetic undertones of artists like Matthew Sweet and The Beatles deliver an emotional rollercoaster of sound.
For Workaholics Anonymous, the band offers the gentle revelation that is "Busy Day," a magical morning overture that keeps its gaze toward life's new adventures, whilst still clutching onto the playful innocence of youth.
