Joe Uveges has meandered the path of quiet musical anonymity on Colorado's front range for more than 20 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.
Joe is currently promoting album #9, "When the Smoke Clears", a true country disc he co-produced with co-writer and fabulous vocalist Stephanie Pauline. This disc is a rather large departure from Joe's folk roots, but remains true to the quality of writing he strives to achieve. You can read more about the production under "Albums".

I have been slowly inching my way out of the rabbit farming business, not that the term “business” actually applies in the current context. If I could in some way write off the losses accrued while farming rabbits, like a regular corporate expense, I think then the term could be appropriate. Sadly, because I am not a large farm, nor a business too big to fail, nor a union worthy of subsidy, nor a Congressional staffer, um, let's just say I've lost some money..
My buddy Brad Hartman has been maintaining for years that I have a performance future as “Joey Vegas”, a chintzy looking shmoozer dressed in plaid polyester and dark eyeglasses who does nothing but 60's and 70's covers in the style of Tom Jones. He is fairly certain that should I go this route I will finally find the fame which has thus far eluded me. I believe that he is in error on this, but I'm not sure. Joey Vegas has a nice ring to it. “Yo, Joey V! You know what I mean!”.
