The Rhythm Room w/ RyanHood

Tonight’s show was amazing. The crowd in Phoenix was stupid fun and I loved playing the Rhythm Room! The staff was awesome, and really make the bands feel appreciated!

I just walked off stage and RyanHood is playing a set that is pretty much captivating every single person in the room. Such a great night, and even if the rest of the tour sucks, it was worth it for this show!

I’m currently chillin in the green room and looking at all the posters and stickers. Notable ones include, The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Leon Russell, Of Montreal, Tony Lucca, Ernie Halter, Bob Schneider, and The B*Side Players.

Tomorrow morning I’m playing on the TV show, “Tucson Morning Blend” on KGUN 9. 11:00 and I’ll be playing 2 songs and talking about the tour. 😀 (sounds like a fun time, right?) Then I’m playing at my absolute favorite hippie coffee house “the Glass Onion” around 6:00. (Free show w/ a suggested donation, but no one will be turned away!!!! I think… :-P)

Love you guys. Nights like tonight remind me that this is what I’m supposed to do. 😛

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.
