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.

Studio Land

Buried deep in album project. It’s not something I like to do much in the daytime, all the best stuff happens at night. The phone is reasonably silent and the world is lot more distant from my mind. I can get lost in there. It’s going well, not so much down on tape yet, just working it all up and getting ready for those dawn moments when you stare out the window and know your onto something.

Went to see Dave Mathews and band at Wembley last night. Amazing musicianship, along with genuine community and kindness on stage. Could have done with a little less jamming and a few more songs but that’s a small gripe on a superb performance. Strange he isn’t so well known here, though a packed Wembley arena would suggest different. (I have that strange problem everywhere!) A lot of Americans present I think and I still can’t see his albums in record stores.
