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.

Sorry for delay since last entry. Been driving home late at night as we are mainly in the south now and haven’t been able to find the space to write something due to other stuff going on. Have been finishing off new tracks for the ‘best of’ album and spent our day off on Wednesday mixing a new song, ‘Thunder and Rainbows’ with Nigel Hopkins. I have to say I’m really pleased with it. Played it to my manager Colin yesterday and even he got excited which is saying something! Gigs have been fine. It was good to play the new Stables Theatre in Milton Keynes, the old stage is now where the foyer is! Looking forward to my own show there in Dec. I seem to have settled on a set list now

Please Sir
Arizona Dreams
The Good In Me
Thunder Road

I may change it tonight though! Last night was the only slightly tough gig on the tour with the bar raising the noise level during the set at the Shepherds Bush Empire, not a big problem though. Went to dinner with Colin after, it was good to spend some time with him as he is so busy right now with the current success of Travis and Craig David. We have been together for ten years now and its good of him to hang in with me! Drove home and got in around 2am, took kids to school this morning, saw the chiropracter about the war wounds and here I am, 15 mins before show time in Warwick. Once more into the breach…
