Martyn Joseph
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.

He is gifted with the rare ability to speak to the soul with his expressive and poignant lyrics and has a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances.

Compared to Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, he has created his own style and reputation as a mesmerising                                                                                                                                                                                            live performer and stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives. A unique talent driven by passion, social awareness and love for his trade, hes a jaw dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed up with a powerful show stopping voice, and has been called The Welsh Springsteen

In addition to his 5 top 50 UK hits, the importance of his work has been recognised by programmes such as BBC Radio 2s prime time series on Singer/Songwriters. Social justice has an essential presence throughout his music, which has been recognised with various humanitarian awards and plaudits.

Concerned with making music that is relevant and vital to his audience, he engages with challenging narratives tackling the complexity of the human condition, underpinned with a promise of hope. In his own words Really what I do is to try and write songs that might step up and make some sense of a moment in time. A good song makes you feel like youre not alone in the world.

There is a versatility to Martyns 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 doesnt need a defining genre and with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyns 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.

In 2013 Martyn released a CD of Bruce Springsteen songs, to great public and critical acclaim, with the glowing endorsement of Dave Marsh, acclaimed American music critic, official Springsteen biographer and close friend of the Boss himself.

2014 saw him take the spirit of his music onto a more practical footing with the launch of his Let Yourself Trust, a not-for-profit organisation which aims to make a small difference out of great love and commitment by challenging injustice wherever its found, educating via advocacy, campaigning for human rights, and raising issues that have been forgotten or ignored via fundraising initiatives, thus bringing about greater awareness for beautiful people in powerless situations. Hes also Patron of Advantage Africa and Festival Spirit in the UK and Project Somos in Canada/Guatemala.

He has won the love of audiences from USA and Canada to Europe through an impressive number of live dates, and has previously toured with the likes of Art Garfunkel, Jools Holland, Ani DiFranco, Suzanne Vega, Mike and The Mechanics, Joan Armatrading, Celine Dion and Shirley Bassey. He is hailed as a raconteur weaving tales on topical concerns, as well as stories on the fragility of love, with a magical ability to reach out to his listeners through his passion and humour. Stunning reviews single him out as an unmissable solo performer whose music stays with you long after the show has ended.

2016 was one of Martyns busiest, playing over 170 shows worldwide, he was also asked by the EFDSS and British Parliament to write and perform as part ofSweet Liberties with Nancy Kerr, Sam Carter and Maz OConnor to mark 800 years of British democracy, One of his songs from this, Nye celebrating Nye Bevan, the author of the NHS, has been enthusiastically received by audiences everywhere, as well as having BBC national airplay on Mark Radcliffes Folk Show and Tom Robinsons 6 Music show.

Autumn 2018 will see the release of his 33rd studio album, produced by Gerry Diver (Tom Robinson, Lisa Knapp and Sam Lee)

Martyn Joseph. A unique talent driven by passion and love for his trade, continues to write, sing and play from the heart. Its a road hes been travelling for most of his life and, as he often tells his audience, you keep turning up and so will I.
