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.

Belgium and crowds that wont stop singing

Have been a busy boy on the road and in the studio. We started the first leg of the UK Autumn tour a few weeks ago and I have really been enjoying the gigs. I have also been in the studio recording an acoustic version of Lonely Like America which is now up as a free download and putting together the first of a new Live Bootleg album series, with the first volume covering selected live moments from the past eighteen years. I’m really pleased with it and it will be released to coincide with the upcoming UK shows that will commence when I return from gigging here on mainland Europe.

Have just played lovely shows here in Belgium. One was in Oud Heverlee where the backdrop of artistic nudes only added to the already great vibe and last night at Club Fagot in Ingelmunster. Something happened at both of these shows that I have never experienced before. Having been kindly summoned back for an encore I finished off with what I thought would be the last song ‘On My Way’. However at both concerts the crowd wouldn’t stop singing and summoned me back again not by applause but by refusing to quit the song. Wonderful atmosphere at both shows and I’m looking forward to Holland on the weekend.
