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.

Under Lemonade Skies – October 2010

Under Lemonade Skies is the album that Martyn Joseph has always wanted to release. It takes his trademark “one take” up close sound and adds startling textures, stunning instrumentation and expressive vocals that will stop you in your tracks.

In a career spanning 30 years, Martyn Joseph has built a phenomenal reputation as one of the most charismatic and arresting solo performers on either side of the Atlantic, and this album demonstrates that unique ability to connect with an audience, wherever they stand on life’s journey and taps them on the shoulder to let them know they aren’t alone.

We are taken on a cinematic journey across Continents through the album, from the scene-setting opening song, Always will Be to the closing affirmation of friendship and kindred spirits of Brothers In Exile. Along the way we share in the breathless beauty of Seahorse, the affirmation of love in You’re the Moment and visit icons of US movies and literature in Lonely Like America. After hearing the music, just as with a great movie, you are left believing in the power of the human spirit and the hope, inspiration and confidence as to what we can all achieve together.
