JOSH SAVAGE: LIVE FROM THE LIVING ROOM

Josh Savage is a prime example that determination and courage go a long way when pursuing a dream. Supported only by a love for his craft, the singer/songwriter tours the world, recruiting supporters one living room at a time. You see, this 26 year old tours on request, booking private shows in people’s homes and performing for intimate crowds. This, according to the singer, “allows artists to find their feet and to get an idea of how the industry works before being influenced by someone that’s already in the industry.

We want our songs to have meaning and texture, we want to set ourselves apart by taking people on a trip with our youth. This album we’re releasing is called, “The Day Moon,” because whenever it’s broad day, or before sunset, there’s a day moon that’s just so beautiful; that acts as a beauty mark in the sky. The vibes you get are too surreal sometimes.” 

A passion that acts as a canvas, we sat down with Nicholas Bodenstadt of The Howlies to talk about the ambitions and idea behind San Diego’s latest “psychedelic surf rock” band.
