Martyn Joseph is a completely unique and mind blowing artist. Take everything you think you know about singer songwriters… and rip it up. For one man and a guitar he creates a performance with a huge far-reaching sound that is energetic, compelling and passionate. Be it to two hundred people or twenty thousand, he blows the crowd away night after night.
There is a versatility to his music that is hard to categorise. Many have tried, resulting in labels such as Folk, Rock, Soul, Folk Funk and Americana; all of which somehow miss the mark. But sometimes music doesn’t need a defining genre and with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyn’s music and social commentary manage to empower and speak for many. His songs are pictures, and stories, and feelings all put to music and delivered by a master craftsman.
With a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances, autumn 2018 will see the release of his 33rd studio album, produced by Gerry Diver (Tom Robinson, Lisa Knapp and Sam Lee).
Driven by passion and a love for his trade, Martyn continues to write, sing and play from the heart. It’s a road he’s been travelling for most of his life and, as he often tells his audience, “You keep turning up and so will I”.
“Stunning, heartfelt music” Bob Harris BBC Radio 2
