Tucson Morning Blend, Goofy, and the Glass Onion

This morning’s show was a ton of fun. I don’t think I’ve been around a crew that loves to laugh as much as the peeps at the Tucson Morning Blend. I read up on the hosts before the show, and Alex is a real sport, and Anne… You think she’s gorgeous in pictures??? Wait till you’re looking her in the eyes with a camera rolling… Your knees will buckle just as much as mine did! They’re smart, funny, and obvious hardworkers. I dig that. Hopefully video from the show will be up soon.

I got to meet Bobby and Greg from the Bobby Rich Show on 94.9 Mix FM. Super great guys and a lot of fun! They suggested going to Ryanhood’s show in Tucson tomorrow night and I double that! In fact, it looks like Cameron Hood may be coming over to get a writing session in before I play at the glass onion tonight. I’m stoked, cause after hearing their melodies last night, I can definite see a similarity in writing styles and good people can be wicked hard to find in this business.

Goofy was also at the show today, and he assured me that he remembered me from my trip to Disneyland when I was 4. That was cool. I figured he probably remembered me, cause we talked about bugs for a good 3 minutes.

Anyways, tonight is the show at the Glass Onion. I’ll be playing with the Brandon Jim Band and the show starts at 6:00. Hopefully a few peeps will come out and buy some CD’s. 😀

So if you know anybody in Tucson, I’d love to meet ’em! 😀

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.
