What a GREAT Month!

This last month has been a really great one for me. I’ve had a lot of cool things happen, and I’m so grateful for all the opportunities to find new people who dig the tunes! Here’s a quick recap!

I’m not bragging… I just need to remind myself sometimes. Last night, I found myself sitting in my room feeling like an overweight, pasty white, nobody who hadn’t done anything. It’s good to celebrate your victories and remember to take a step back and be proud of yourself for a sec. BUT it’s also important not to get hung up on your own press. While these were all positive, I’m sure I could google and find people who disagreed with all of the good things people say about my music.

THANK YOU for your support, and for all your help this last month. Let’s keep it up! 😀

I’ll be playing at Molly Malone’s to kick off the 5th Annual SoCal Music Live Awards. (I was one of their judges!!!) And this Wednesday, I’ll be playing 2 songs at the Blue and Green Showcase at Room 5! Hope to see you at one of these events! 😀

Love you,

About Josh Damigo

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his homemade EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident, Damigo 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, Eric Hutchinson, 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 release, 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, Damigo spent much of year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his latest album, "Just Give Me a Call", available now, on Randm Records. From the up-tempo single, “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.
