Description

BBC award-winning Martyn Joseph has announced a 28-date UK autumn tour showcasing this new album - amazingly his 30th recording. Few singer songwriters have the hammer blow "once seen, never forgotten" effect of this colossally talented and charismatic Welshman - one of acoustic music's brightest stars.

Shades of Springsteen, Knopfler and Dave Matthews there may be - but Joseph is a performer like no other - his diverse current album 'Vegas' recently gaining 4 stars in a Mojo review. Bob Harris has praised the "outstanding lyrical intelligence" of his songs which can range from rock to blues, jazz and even, according to one critic , "funk folk"!

A mean guitar player with a powerful voice, he was voted Best Male Artist in the BBC's Welsh Music Awards and with a string of Top 50 hits to his name (including "Dolphins Make Me Cry" and "Please Sir") he has been in demand on both sides of the Atlantic for over two decades, touring with the likes of Art Garfunkel and Jools Holland and winning fans everywhere with his uncanny fusion of material.

This album traces the organic morphing of some of his best loved songs - the Kosovo lament "The Good In Me Is Dead", the fervent "Proud Valley Boy" of his roots and the exquisite "Have An Angel Walk With Her" - songs that have taken on a life of their own, delivered with ever more passion, sometimes barely recognisable now from their original format.
