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.

These three days off the road have gone so quickly. Off to Stamford tommorow to continue the FFA tour. I`m looking forward to that as i love being on the road, but cant help but glance a reluctant eye over my diary for the next six months.

Its going to very busy and it looks like i`m going to be away in Canada and America for two months this summer. Before that i have the trip to Brazil, a week in Scotland filming for Songs Of Praise ( they have promised to make me look like a rock God!!) and a gig, two shows in London,a week in Portugal, a week in West Wales ( granted its a holiday) and i have to write and record a new album ready for touring at the end of the year. Combine that with the second volume of live stuff i`m currently working on, the PQ freebie CD and various other projects on the boiler with other artists and its all rather daunting. I`m not complaining, but cherish the days with the family, hence my comment about the last three days. I`m reading a great book at the moment. Its called `The Wind Up Bird Chronicles` and is written by Haruki Murakami. It normaly takes me a long time to read a book but i`m rushing through this, its very different and absorbing stuff. I cant begin to explain it but would highly reccomend it if you are looking for something a little different. OK, lets see if i can mix another track before dinner.. M
