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.

San Jose, Santa Rosa and Wales

At the gig in San Jose were Steve Meredith and his wife. Steve originates from my hometown of Penarth, same schools etc. Had not expected to hear the names of various local haunts back in Wales mentioned that evening, it’s indeed a small world

Right now there is another link between Cardiff and San Jose as due to the NHL lockout, a hockey played called Rob Davidson who normally plays for the San Jose Sharks is playing for the Cardiff Devils. Good to be back playing in Santa Rosa too. A great bunch of folk to play for, especially considering the fact that at one point in the show, when encouraging them to sing along I said ‘come on San Jose’..oops and apologies. Did two radio shows in the day as well. Watched the Superbowl final in the lounge of the Fairmount hotel in San Francisco today which was ok, but I can only imagine the excitement in Cardiff yesterday when Wales toppled the English. It was mentioned in dispatches to a bemused Californian crowd last night.
