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.

Love from Seattle

I’m writing from Seattle. Played a show here last night at a place called ‘The Tractor’ and very fine it was too. Tonight we play Portland (I always say we as if I’m a band..hmm) and then fly down to California. The tour has had a great start with a week primarily in the sno

Beautiful Banff, a night in Penticton that I would rate in my top 20 gigs of all time, Vancouver memorable too and a wonderful visit to Prince George which felt like a coming home show. I’m making the shows a little more concise, a little more focussed and it’s intriguing to me, and I don’t want to sound conceited, but it actually feels like a whole new MJ thing is happening. New songs ploughing through and I don’t think I have ever been more on top of things live. I have had a lot of practise though! As we head south now it will get a lot warmer before we head off to snow again in Denver. It’s hard to pack for tours like this. My buddy Simon flew home yesterday and I will miss him. It’s great though to be able to share these experiences with others close to me. I miss home more than ever these days. A sort of panic like fear that time and moments are passing without my presence. I have amazing support from that tribe of mine.
