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. Be it to two hundred people or twenty thousand, he blows the crowd away night after night.
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 mesmerising 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. 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”.
Here is a video of Martyn performing his song “Let Yourself”:
Dan Pallotta is returning to music after a thirty-year hiatus. He says “Some songwriters have a lot to say about life when they are twenty. Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Springsteen. I didn’t really. It took me forty years to get a perspective on life. Much of my writing now comes from whatever wisdom I’ve accumulated in those years, from my empathy for all those who suffer in the world, who struggle in the desert between their potential and their reality, their dream and their situation, witnessed from the perspective of forty years in philanthropy and, well, just living. I love being this age. I love looking at the world, the human condition, and the cosmos from this perch on the tree of life. I try to put what I see from here into words, and marry them to those three chords.”
