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.

 

2016 was one of Martyn’s busiest years yet, and this was acknowledged by him being nominated in the Hardest Working Artist category at the UK Independent Music Awards, being the only folk artist to receive any nomination. Playing over 170 shows worldwide he was also part of the Parliament/EFDSS project, Sweet Liberties, marking 800 years of British democracy, with Nancy Kerr, Sam Carter and Maz O’Connor.

With a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances, autumn 2018 saw the release of his 33rd studio album, produced by Gerry Diver (Tom Robinson, Lisa Knapp and Sam Lee).

A unique talent driven by passion and love for his trade, Martyn continues to write, sing and play from the heart. Stunning reviews single him out as an unmissable solo performer whose music stays with you long after the show has ended. Come and see why at Huntingdon Hall, Worcester this January.

Intelligent and enlightened songs are both energising and provocative… from subtle tenderness to growly indignation. A Welsh national treasure” MOJO
