Daniel Chin and Caffeine

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I just want to take a moment to tell you that Daniel Chin is a ridiculously talented photographer. If you have ugly friends, hire him to take their pictures, and they will become beauty queens, stars on the movie screen, and have all their dreams come true.

Daniel’s done 3 photoshoots of me now, and every time I’m blown away by his talent. I don’t think I’m particularly beautiful, but he definitely makes me feel that way.

Okay… now that the mushy stuff is done… let me tell you about the rest of my day… 😛

I’m currently compiling my media list for the tour coming up. It’s an annoying hourly process which makes me a little cranky, but hopefully one or two people will read the press release and I can get a blurb in a paper, appearance on a show, or maybe even a radio interview? All I can say is that it’s gonna be a LONG trip… I’m going to need lots of coffee and hopefully couches to sleep on. (No cats….)

I’ve been rockin out in this starbucks for a few hours now, listening to Eminem, The Rock Mafia, and other things that make me look like a weird white guy bobbing his head… I’m sure the baristas are all looking at me funny. 😛

I’m playing a benefit show tonight for victims of this terrible tragedy in Joplin, Missouri. If you’re in LA, please consider spending your night with me… wait… that didn’t come out right…. Just come to the show…

Okay. No more caffeine. I’m out.

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.
