Passionate, socially-conscious, and poignant: Martyn Joseph is one of Wales’ most respected singer-songwriters of the last 30 years. With a gruff and earnest tenor, Joseph channels the complexity of the human condition into spellbinding roots-rock narratives. He’s been compared to the cream of modern rock’s legendary troubadours like Bruce Springteen, John Mayer, and Bruce Cockburn for his empowering, compassionate, and heartfelt lyricism.
A staple of BBC Radio, he’s had numerous Top 50 UK hits, and toured with some of the 20th Century’s most beloved roots songwriters including Ani DiFranco, Suzanne Vega, and Joan Armatrading. In 2019, Martyn Joseph released his 33rd studio album “Here Come The Young” to critical acclaim.
