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.

Bristol, Bragg, Politics..

Great night last Friday at the Colston Hall in Bristol, with Billy Bragg and friends. Steve and i played a thirty minute set along with other folks like comedian Mark Steele and speakers, George Monbiot and Charles Abyrge. The whole evening raised global issues such as Make Poverty History. I was fascinated listening to Billy both on and off stage, especially this close to a general election. His understanding of the political system in this country certainly put me to shame and made me think. My good friend Stephen Fearing from Canada is touring these parts this month. If you can make a show you will love it. He is a great artist.
