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.

Coming down

Just coming down after the tour has finished, though I have two small shows in Wales this week that I’m looking forward to. The dates we have just completed in the UK have been the most memorable for me for some time. It was great to have Miranda adding that low end with great sensitivity each night and I thought Martin Sexton did a wonderful job of starting the show each night and playing to a UK audience for the first time.

Leeds on Saturday night was a riot, and we recorded the show so I’m looking forward to listening back. Thanks for the great feedback on the new stuff too. There is always a little emptiness after a long run of dates. If I include the Show Of Hands tour, which started back in October, I have played around 85 shows up till Sunday. There was also a bit of surgery in between! I find myself a little restless around 8.00pm and it actually feels weird not to be travelling to somewhere. After this week I will get into studio mode for a while and see what can be captured.
