Josh Damigo will be headlining at Copper Rock Coffee Co. on September 13, 2013. The San Diego based singer and songwriter just released his new album, “Live at Lestats” on August 30. In 2013 so far, he has played over 80 shows in listening rooms and festivals all around the country and opened for Andy Grammer, Eric Hutchinson, and Matt Nathanson, all as an independent artist. Not bad!
Josh Damigo became a household name after the HBO Film “Wartorn: 1861-2010” was released in 2010 featuring his brother, Nathan Damigo, and his struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The flim which was produced by the late James Gandolfini told the story of the military families and their struggles with loved ones coming home with PTSD. This is an important topic to me personally, as my father struggles with devastating PTSD from the Korean War, and many good men have had it even worse. The devastating effects of war need to be better understood and our vets given the support and help they need, not abandoned by bureaucrats as often happens. But I digress.
You can see a clip from the movie featuring Josh and Nathan Damigo here, with Josh’s song, “Never Gonna Let You Go”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV9WXRs9_20. Readers of this blog can download his song “How Am I Not Supposed to Fall."
