FANS will tell you that Martyn Joseph is a completely unique and mind blowing artist.

Take everything you think you know about singer songwriters….and rip it up. For one man and a guitar he creates a performance with "a huge far-reaching sound that is energetic, compelling and passionate".

A spokesman said: "Be it to two hundred people or twenty thousand, he blows the crowd away night after night.

"April 2019 saw him win a Wales Folk Award for Here Come The Young, the title track of his most recent album, of which Uncut magazine said. 'He’s never sounded more potent than he does here'."

In 2018 he was honoured with a 'Spirit of Folk' award by Folk Alliance International in Kansas USA and he also received Fatea magazine’s 'Lifetime Achievement Award' here in the UK.

The spokesman said: "He is gifted with the rare ability to speak to the soul with his expressive and poignant lyrics and has a career spanning 30 years, 32 albums, over a half a million record sales and thousands of live performances.

"Compared to Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, he has created his own style and reputation as a mesmerizing live performer and stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives."

And that's not all.

The spokesman added: "A unique talent driven by passion, social awareness and love for his trade, he's a jaw dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed up with a powerful show stopping voice, and has been called The Welsh Springsteen."

And the good news is, he has a date at Worcester's Huntingdon Hall on January 23, at 7.30pm.
