Martyn Joseph is a powerful singer and songwriter whose expressive and poignant lyrics speak to the soul. With a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances, the versatility of his music touches genres of folk, rock, soul, folk funk and Americana, yet somehow all these labels cannot define the spirit of his music.
A unique talent driven by passion, social awareness and love for his trade, Joseph’s music manages to empower and speak for the many. 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.'
“Really what I do is to try and write songs that might step up and make some sense of a moment in time," says the songwriter. "A good song makes you feel like you’re not alone in the world.”
Regularly performing across the UK, Europe and North America, Joseph 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 continues to write, sing and play from the heart. It’s a road he’s been travelling for most of his life and, as he often tells his audience, "you keep turning up and so will I."
