Happy September! (September Newsletter)

Happy September!

I hope that you’re getting ready to put kids to school, go to school, or just remember something from school… 😀 This month is jam packed with things, so let’s get at it!

  1. Kickstarter is still going strong, but we’re a little less than $2500 away from our goal. If you haven’t yet backed, or haven’t shared, please take two seconds to go to the website, and check it out!  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshdamigo/help-josh-damigo-make-a-new-record
  2. I have another tour starting this month! I’ll be playing in San Diego, LA, San Francisco, Redding, Portland (Oregon), Bend (Oregon), Coeur D’Alene (Idaho), Moab (Utah), Durango (Colorado),Denver (Colorado), Boulder (Colorado), Dallas (Texas), Austin (Texas), and Phoenix (Arizona). (I might have house parties in Albuquerque, Oklahoma, and Seattle– If you are interested in hosting a party, please e-mail me!)  
  3. I’m playing my monthly residency at the ROXY in LOS ANGELES tonight! (It’s this club on top called, “On the Rox”.) It’s only 5 bucks, 21 and up, and starts at 8:00.  I need help building this show, so I can start bringing my band with me. If you can invite a few peeps from LA to come down (And say my name when you get your tickets!!!) that would be great!!

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now! Thank you so much for all the support! I hope that your September is the best! Remember that you can always go to www.joshdamigo.com for blog updates and info! I hope to talk to you all soon!

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.
