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.

New York and Boston

Typing late at night here in Boston hotel room. Snow falling outside on a cold night. New York was fine, small crowd which I expected not having played there since 93, but up for it. Hooked up with Doug Yowall and Billy Masters from Suzanne Vega’s band and had a hilarious dinner somewhere on the East Side at a new restaurant with a very enthusiastic French owner. You would have had to have been there but it was memorable!

Boston tonight was great. Club Passim, full of folk history; Dylan, Phil Ochs, Odetta, some of the names who have played there. I really enjoyed the show, played two new songs. Lots of cool stories from the audience about there connection to the music but none to top a young guy called Shane. He was at the Tower Records signing session and show I did in Boston after opening for Rossane Cash in 93..he was two years old. His Dad got me to sign an album for him that day and now he plays and said some nice things about how the music has inspired him etc. That felt good. Snow still falling. We fly to Houston for tomorrow’s nights show in the morning. No snow there but more stories, always stories.
