Joey Nebulous is a pop project crafted from the mind of Joseph Farago. Starting in his college dorm in late 2015, the band began as an operation of close friends. With the support of Farago’s gifted and reassuring bandmates, Joey Nebulous has performed around the country, playing at huge venues like Brooklyn Bazaar with Remember Sports and performing alongside indie rock legends like Soccer Mommy. Farago was also lucky enough to collaborate with his musical hero Frankie Cosmos on the single “Break,” which was released in April 2023.
Once Farago left school, new band members were added to the lineup in 2018 and 2019: Margaret McCarthy on keys and vocals, Logan Novak on drums, and Wilson Brehmer on bass and vocals. Together, the group set out to craft unequivocally light-hearted music that appealed to a different audience in Chicago’s rock scene. Their songs about pop culture, gay relationships, and comical fantasies were quickly noticed by the queerdos of the city’s music community, illuminating a pathway for the band’s longevity.
After years of performing around the midwest, Joey Nebulous is gearing up to release their debut on Dear Life Records. The album contains more than half a decade of songwriting and determination, a tireless output only achieved by the support and input of Chicago’s loyal music scene.
