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.

    Hi Martyn,

    I know you are a big fan of Springsteen, as am I, but he may also be a fan of yours too.
    It is interesting that he has titled his latest album release “Wrecking Ball”… possibly an ‘homage’ to your album cover on Evolved…?

    Good luck with the US tour…return safe to UK.
