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.
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, 33 albums, over 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 mesmerizing 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, he’s 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.”
There is a versatility to Martyn’s music that is hard to categorize. 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.
