The award-winning singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist, Martyn Joseph, will be stopping off at Swaffham Assembly Rooms tomorrow as part of his UK Autumn tour.
With a career spanning thirty years and over half a million record sales, this charismatic and energetic solo performer shows his versatility across folk, rock, soul, folk-funk and Americana.
A powerful singer and songwriter, he’s been compared to Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, but has carved his own style and reputation as a mesmerising live performer.
A unique talent driven by passion, social awareness and love for his trade, his music manages to empower and speak for the many.
With five top 50 UK hits under his belt, Martyn was awarded Best Male Artist at the 2004 BBC Welsh Music Awards and in 2012 his song, There’s Always Maybe, won the best folk song category in the World Independent Music Awards.
Social justice is ever-present throughout his music, which has been recognised with numerous humanitarian awards and plaudits.
Concerned with making music that is relevant and vital to his audience, Martyn delivers challenging narratives, tackling the complexity of the human condition but underpinned with a promise of hope.
He said: “Really what I do is to try and write songs that might step up and make some sense of a moment in time. A good song makes you feel like you’re not alone in the world.”
Martyn Joseph’s show tomorrow starts at 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £15 and are available online at www.wegottickets.com or from Ceres Bookshop, in Swaffham, on 01760 722504.
