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.

The album is finished, that is to say its recorded. I will mix it when I get back from Canada, but right now a hall full of musical parts have auditioned and wait to see if they have made the production. I listened last night outside the studio for the first time and I like it..can’t say more than that.


Normally I hate it by now but ‘Vegas’ is different, and it had to be with a name like that. I don’t think it’s folk music. My kids like it. I’m in Canada having just played the Vancouver folk festival. Had a wonderful weekend with great shows and response. Highlight was playing on the mainstage last night with the sun going down, a standing ovation (they sit down to start at folk festivals!) and then a birthday cake delivered on stage. Apart from being home with the family I can’t think of a nicer way of spending a birthday. I have now had 4 of my last 7 birthdays here in Vancouver. Have also had a small film crew following me around and I think we have enough for an interesting film.
