New song I wrote called “Change”. It’s a little different than my normal stuff, kind of reflective and where I’m at in life today. I don’t really feel comfortable singing it, but here are the lyrics. Love you guys. Hope to see you Thursday at Lestats or Friday at Irenic. (Or both!!!)


(C) 2011
Written by Josh Damigo

There’s this moment
between awake and sleep
Where the world starts spinning
And I can stop and think

All of my friends
Went and got new friends
I’ve had a tough year
So I guess I can’t really blame them

And as my tired eyes finally start to see
It’s all my fault, Yes the common cause is me

I hate change

I wish’d I’d never met her
I wish I’d never gone to LA

But I’ve grown so much
And I’m a better man today

I want to tell a friend
I want to tell her everything
But she doesn’t care
She’s done listening

And as my bloodshot eyes finally start to see
It’s all my fault, the blame is all on me

I hate change

Half of me is a stingy jerk
The other half cares
Mixed with an assortment of
loneliness and fears

Part of me is an empty tomb
The other part loves
The rest of me is just confused
and comes off nonchalant.

Some of me is just a kid
Forced to grow up fast
The other bit is an adult
who cannot be impressed

Opinionated and overrated
but Looked up to by a few
I wish that I had all the answers
But I still pretend I do

Bravado hides insecurities
when all I have is want
Failures are the only things
I take notice of

All my best friends don’t even call
Me their best friend
I guess that’s just the way it ends

I hate change


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.
