Preview: Martyn Joseph at The Musician, 11th April

plus Luke Jackson
Martyn Joseph is as performer like no other. Touring in support of a brand new studio album “Songs for the Coming Home”, shades of Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be – but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.

There is a versatility to Martyn’s 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 songs are pictures, and stories, and feelings all put to music and delivered by a master craftsman.

“Britain's best kept secret… a challenging songwriter and a compelling courageous live performer” - **** MoJo

Martyn is one of our most intelligent writers. He gets better and better like the finest of wines”Bob Harris

“One of the most charismatic and electrifying performers in Britain today” - Tom Robinson, BBC 6

Support comes from BBC Radio 2 Folk Award double nominee Luke Jackson, an emerging young roots singer songwriter from Canterbury.
