Martyn Joseph (GB) – ein gigantischer Songwriter!

Er steht in einer Reihe mit Richard Shindell, John Gorka, Peter Mulvey …

Martyn JosephDer mehrfach preisgekrönte Songwriter-Guitarist Martyn Joseph liegt stimmlich, atmosphärisch und qualitativ recht nahe bei Richard Shindell, der im September 2016 im Wilhelm13 wohl eines der besten Singers & Players Konzerte in all den Jahren gegeben hat. Mit “Here Come The Young” legt der Waliser sein 22. Album vor. Als einfühlsamer Mahner an souverän gespielter Gitarre singt er, ähnlich wie Steve Knightley von Show Of Hands, mit charismatischer Stimme dennoch optimistisch über eine Welt, die ziemlich aus den Fugen geraten ist.

“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 … he is a performer like no other: Shades of Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be – but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives delivering his ‘songs of lyrical intelligence’” – Bob Harris/BBC
