"One of acoustic music's most original voices, and most forward looking of his generation of singer/songwriters." — Q Magazine
"the beautiful business of being alive with all it's jokes, absurdity and sadness, seared by music for the heart and head."
Across a 25-year career, and having released his 30th album Evolved in October 2008, which traces the organic morphing of some of his best loved songs, Martyn's song catalogue is an awesomely impressive archive of our times, our tribulations, our wonder and our wounds. Always charming, sometimes alarming, Martyn Joseph is a unique songwriter who digs deep and delivers an ultimate, life affirming message. One of the most unusual and compelling performers you are likely to encounter.
