You're going to have a rough time finding someone who embraces the quintessential San Diego sound more than Josh Damigo, who's been a CityBeat friend for a long time. Though he wasn't born in Southern California, his easygoing acoustic tunes drip with sunshine, flip-flops and day-drinking at the beach.
In this episode of A Trolley Show, Damigo's finger-popping guitar work and smooth vocals mask dark lyrical content on "Pocket Change," which gives the song (like much of Damigo's material) an intriguing duality. The blues never felt this sunny.
