Denver – The Walnut Room

When booking tours, always remember that 14 hours away, means 14 hours away.

That drive was brutal!!! I left so quickly after the Boise show, that I hope I didn’t forget to say “goodbye!” I drove all the way till 5am, slept at a rest stop till 9, then drove till 5PM and got to Denver 10 minutes before my sound check. I’m too old for this…

The Walnut Room was an AMAZING venue. For my SD peeps, it’s about the size of the dance floor at Belly Up, but with the same size stage and sound! After check, I was able to hear Katey Laurel and Rachel and the Kings and once again, I was the least talented of the bunch. I seriously need to take guitar lessons…

The room was packed!! Everyone was so attentive and it was one of those nights like we have at Lestats. I can’t believe I got to play there!

This blog is not my best, but all I did all day was listen to the Patriots game and the 49ers game and then kill in 2 fantasy leagues, but get creamed in the one that mattered… Ugh. Other than that, I literally just drove. I guess I saw a car hit a deer. That was cool.

During my set, I popped a string and Katey let me borrow her guitar. I wanted that one as well, it sounded so good!

Well listen. I’ll post a better blog soon. I’m so tired and I actually have a bed tonight, so I’m going to use it!

Goodnight guys!
Dream big.

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.
