Martyn Joseph

For one man and a guitar, Martyn Joseph 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. After a sold-out Hall Two show in 2022, Kings Place welcomes Joseph to Hall One.


Compared to Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews, Martyn Joseph 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’.

2024 kicked off with the release of a new ‘masterful and career defining’ (Fatea UK) studio album, This Is What I Want To Say, along with a sell out UK tour, followed by shows in mainland Europe and North America…

2023 saw Martyn part of BBC Radio 2’s 21st Century Folk project, with his song Albert’s Place and included appearances on BBC Breakfast TV, the Jeremy Vine and Ken Bruce shows on BBC Radio 2 along with Radio 4’s The World at One.

His critically-acclaimed 2021 record, 1960 was made Folk Album of The Month in Mojo and awarded 4 starts by Uncut, and remained in the UK Official Folk charts for much of 2022.

Martyn is also founder, along with his wife Justine, of the Let Yourself Trust.  LYT works alongside Martyn’s music to help give profile to and fund Grassroots organisations across the globe. They have given away over half a million pounds to 14 different projects in the last 8 years.

This event will last approximately, 2 hours 30 minutes, including an interval.
