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.

Late blog

Well, slap my wrist, as it has been a while. Sorry everyone. I should be a little more regular though am wary of constant blogging as so many do this and I’m thinking why? Journals used to be private, or saved for the end of a journey where perspective could be gathered and items pondered. These days we are constantly letting each other know how we feel, what we`re doing and I’m not convinced people are that interested, its just that no one seems to want to say so.

Anyway, having said that here we go. The tour with Stewart has long since ended and it was a joy. I have a bunch of the nights recorded and am beginning to listen to see what we have. Since then I have been on a round of solo shows and very good they have been too. After a festival in Belgium this weekend I have some weeks between shows and that will take some getting used to. One special show last week was in Cardiff with the Storys and Amy Wadge and I’m happy to say we raised over £2000 for Banardos which is great news. I also did a session on Radio 2 with Bob Harris which is a bit like two old friends nattering over tea. I thought it was our best chat ever and it was good to air two new songs to which we have had a really good response. I’m contemplating a few things over the next few weeks including recording an EP of material which is building up and have some other creative ideas so will see where that leads. Steve Knightley and I are also pondering a few shows together.

Am enjoying albums by Melody Gardot, The Handsome Family and watching the box set of a Band Of Brothers which I have had for a while now but never watched. But hey, this is really blogging now so I will stop. More real news soon!
