Liverpool Acoustic & Pipe Records present
Martyn Joseph - “Songs for the Coming Home” Spring Tour 2013
Martyn Joseph is as performer like no other.
Touring in support of a brand new studio album “Songs for the Coming Home”, 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.
Martyn’s ability to transcend preconceptions about how one man and a guitar can sound is testament to his talent and stage presence. In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking that there’s more than one musician on stage.The shows are intelligently constructed, Martyn presenting his audience with challenging narratives and with an intensity that hits with the power of a right hook. He tempers this with songs that comfort and speak to the soul. His great improvisation and immediate topicality lead to an organic fluidity that makes every show different. His comfortable rapport and conversation with his audiences, his sense of humour and his ability to make everyone feel at home lie right at the heart of the evenings success.
Juxtaposition is a key theme in Martyn’s work. The simplicity and the complexity of the human condition and all that it encompasses is underpinned with a heady promise of hope. There is a versatility to Martyn’s music that is hard to categorise. Many have tried, resulting in labels such as Folk, Rock, Soul, Folk Funk and Americana; all of which somehow miss the mark. But sometimes music doesn’t need a defining genre and with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyn’s music and social commentary manage to empower and speak for many. His songs are pictures, and stories, and feelings all put to music and delivered by a master craftsman.
Martyn Joseph. A unique talent driven by passion and love for his trade, continues to write, sing and play from the heart.

WeGotTickets recently announced the results of a study into the carbon emissions of various ticketing systems and as a result are now actively discouraging our customers from printing their confirmation emails - and encouraging them to simply make a note of their booking reference to bring along to your event.
The study shows that a paper ticket sent in the post emits 107 times more carbon than our system, when the email is not printed. When your customer prints their confirmation email it produces 42 times more carbon than if they didn't!
Just think, we could fill the O2 Arena (20,000 tickets) and emit less carbon than a printed ticket event selling just 186 tickets would.
Please help us do our bit for the environment by not printing your confirmation emails - reducing carbon emissions, that's the ticket!
