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

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