Aaaaand the tour is done!!!

So I just got off stage in San Diego (at comic con) and I’m ready for bed. 😛 But I’m actually going to hang out with Scott Krinsky and Mark Christopher Lawrence from NBC’s “Chuck” after the gig. I guess there’s a Chuck party down the street and that will be fun. 😛

The tour was awesome, but I compiled a few notes that I learned on tour:
1. If you tour during July, go somewhere that’s not 105 degrees.
2. Don’t try to explain “Carmageddon” to people not in LA.
3. There is NOTHING open in downtown Phoenix on a Wednesday night.
4. When talking to a girl in Phoenix, if her first sentence is, “I have two kids, but you’re really cute.” She’s probably drunk.
5. Singer/songwriter Kyle Phelan will switch bars on you extremely quickly. So text him 5 minutes before you get to the place he told you to go.
6. Apparently, I am allergic to cats AND dogs.
7. Trevor is still my best friend.
8. Pay attention to time changes in different states.
9. Don’t forget to mention the show that you are playing when being interviewed on the morning show.
10. Albuquerque is hot. Don’t wear long sleeves. And wear deodorant.
11. I tend to forget things in Oklahoma City. (At hotels aaaaand venues.)
12. Girls don’t know how to drive.
13. Double check that the guy you’re talking to in Durango, CO is actually a guy.
14. When pumping gas, leave your wallet in the car. You WILL forget it on the roof of your car, and loose half of the money you made on tour, your driver’s license, and all credit cards.

So that’s everything. 😀

Hopefully I’ll be doing it again soon! Thank you to all the new people I met on tour!

My kickstarter.com fundraiser will start August 1st to help with my new album/tour support! Thank you in advance for helping dreams come true!

Love you guys, and thanks for a great tour!

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.
