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.

To Twitter or not?

I knew it had been a while since I last wrote a diary entry but I was surprised at quite how long! Sorry. I hit the road hard after I got back from America and its all been a blur. Thanks to all of you who made the shows and as ever for your fantastic support. I loved the tour and we had some great nights. It was also good to be trying out a bunch of new material that I’m now going to start recording before heading back to Canada at the beginning of May.

As well as recording in my studio I have booked a few days with a small band set up next week to see how that feels with tracks like Lonely Like America and You’re the Moment. This last week saw me recording a song called ‘On This Celtic Morning’ which is my attempt to write a song for the Ryder Cup that takes place for the first time on Welsh soil in October. It will be sent off to the powers that be and I’m hoping I might have created something that will capture the passion and magic of what is going to be an amazing week at the Celtic Manor.

Tonight I’m near London where tomorrow I will play golf with my dad in a tournament we have been playing in now for thirty-five years. The Fathers and Sons tournament was first played at West Hill Golf Club in 1931 and is a wonderful event. We play in the first round tomorrow afternoon, though it’s a knock out event so once we lose a match we head home. The results are usually reported in the Telegraph but I will be honest enough to let you know how we get on in the next epistle.

A bunch of people have been trying to persuade me start twittering, including Mr Simon Mayo, but I remain unconvinced. I mean look how long it takes me between these diary entries let alone every half hour. We shall see but I do promise not to leave quite so long before the next update.
