Happy Novembeard! (Monthly Newsletter)

Nope, it’s not a typo. It’s Novembeard! (where you don’t shave!) Aren’t you glad that I’m not celebrating “Movember”” The month of the Mustache??? 😀

This month’s e-mail is coming a little late, cause I’ve been going nuts working on the new album and finishing up several other projects. So here’s what’s going on!

1. Tour Finale– The tour was AWESOME! I’m sure many of you came out, and thank you! To those of you who just signed up because you wanted my tour camera, I’ve got a winner to announce!!! It’s @CDBLENDER, (Hailey) who gave me some sound advice by saying I should, “1. Check the time zones 2. Sleep 3. Bring Snacks.” (All things that I think are sound advice for every day of the week… :-P)

The tour was awesome. I’ve never felt so liberated and excited by life! I lost my wallet in Oregon, then had the cops find it, and mail it to me in Colorado, Visited for 8 hours with my brother without having any sleep the night before, and hit a deer in New Mexico!!! How much more adventure can one ask for in a 3 week period??? 😀

Thanks again to all my new friends, and old friends who I hadn’t seen in a while. I hope you’ll help me get more people out to the next tour!!! 😀

2. New Album– I currently have the Bass/Drum tracks done for the new album, and I’m SOOOO stinking excited to share these tracks with you when they’re done. I’m not sure what the title of the record is gonna be, but I’m formulating something cute… and i think you’ll like it! 😀 Next, we’re doing the organs, and pianos! (Did you hear A.J. Croce is my new piano player??? yeah… crazy… :-D)

3. Upcoming Shows– THIS SATURDAY in San Diego is going to be awesome. I’m playing with two of my favorite San Diegans, Joanie Mendenhall and John Meeks. (Click http://johnmeeks.bandcamp.com/track/slow-skippin-record to hear my favorite song off of their duet ep. No joke… it’s beautiful… you may cry…)

I just got word that I’ll be opening for Shawn Colvin at the Belly Up mid-December. Tickets are 38-40 bucks because of how legendary it will be. 😀

IF you can’t make either of those, I’ll be opening for my favorite AZ band, “Ryanhood” on December 1st, and guess who’s birthday is coming up… (yeah… it’s mine… December 30th at Lestats!)

4. Miscellaneous- I really like the word miscellaneous… I don’t know why. I’m working on alot of the kickstarter prizes that don’t involve the album. (Because I don’t have them yet…) So check www.youtube.com/joshdamigo regularly to see some of the covers that people donated for! 😀 (I may have done a Taylor Swift cover today… jussayin….)

Thanks again for all the support. As always, please tell somebody about me, and add me on facebook, twitter, myspace, etc., and e-mail me anytime! Love hearing from ya! (All you gotta do is hit “reply”… crazy huh…)

Love you guys!

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.
