Martyn Joseph is a performer like no other: 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 delivering his "songs of lyrical intelligence" according to BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris.

Because We Can Again

On the road with the great poet again and what a wonderful time is being had. I have

forgotten just how mad he is and he keeps me amused and thinking at all times. These shows are quite unique and it’s a shame we don’t get to do it more often. There are moments when I look across at Stewart and feel so proud of both him and language in the sense that words can do so much. This is good work and, though the schedule is tough, you can feel the ripple going moving out and beyond. Grab the show while you can.

Whilst in Scotland last week I spent some time writing with Karine Polwart. That went well and we will do some more and see where it leads.

And a word for my dear brother Michael Baumann in Germany. So much heartache in his little town of Winnenden and indeed close to those he loves. What a crazy world my friend, we are all thinking of you.
