Happy March!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s March already! It’s been a crazy year for me. As many of  you know, my apartment in San Diego was robbed twice as I was moving to LA. Well guess what… My car was robbed here in LA. They got my navigation system, a few of my nicer jackets, my guitar….:-( (I can’t catch a break!!!) Now before you go and chew me out for having my guitar in my car, it was locked, AND locked in my underground parking lot… ALSO everyone plays the “monday quarterback”… so I’ve already heard it… LESSON LEARNED…:-P

Here’s the good news. (Mom is giving me a new navigation system, and I’m probably gonna just break into someone else’s car to get new clothes… that’s how Karma works… right??? If your stuff is stolen, you get to steal someone else’s???) THEN I received a call from Abraham Wechter, and I’ll be flying out to Indiana on the 15th. While I’m there, we’ll be shooting a video and taking pictures for Wechter Guitars, and I’ll be introduced to my BRAND NEW GUITAR!!! 😀 (I also have a show out there in FORT WAYNE, INDIANA… so I hope you midwesterners are prepared to drive!!!) So all I need to do is get some new jackets… who wants to take me shopping???

I’m doing a TON of writing sessions in LA, and tomorrow I’ll be heading over to the SESAC building to write with a good friend of mine here in LA. (Brittany Bouchard– You need to check her out!)

2 San Diego Shows- Both Acoustic this month. We were hoping to do the LIVE recording this month, but it didn’t work out. (Schedule Issues.) I’m playing this Saturday with Mike Moran and Sunday Lane. (They’re amazing!!!) Then I’m playing on the 17th with Tyler Hilton. (Ever heard of him???) I’ll also be doing a podcast and on the front page of the San Diego Troubadour next month! How cool is that?

At the end of the month I’ll be back at Zoey’s in Ventura, for a songwriter’s night with B Willing.

Things are going REALLY well for me. (Minus the whole insecurity of my possessions thingy…) I’m excited to have some new things to show you guys soon!

Love you like crazy, and please tell a friend about me! 😀

About Joshua Lodge

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses and clubs. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident Josh retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for "Best Acoustic" and "Best Local Recording," opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third EP, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Josh spent much of the year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his album I Will Be There out now on Randm Records. From the joyous encouragement of “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
