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.

Bruce and a missing monkey

Went to see Bruce Springsteen in Manchester last night on his Pete Seeger Sessions tour. It was one of the greatest gig’s I have ever been present at. I have seen Bruce play so many times, all good, but there was something special about this, something unmentioned and maybe not apparent. It was glorious. Not a hint of ego, inclusive, celebratory, meaningful, entertaining, an eye on justice, an eye on a better place. Everything that I think is vital about music happened. The man is in his prime, nothing to prove but everything to give. He has never let me down. And the DVD is out, and a monkey got off my back!
