A Soul Surmise Podcast in which I chat to my good mate, the Welsh singer songwriter, Martyn Joseph.
Knowing Martyn for 30 years I was keen to talk to him about stage craft. Martyn can do up to 200 gigs a year and was just back from the west coast of North America when we spoke. Over the years I have chatted too him about the live show, watched him eagerly seek ways to do it better and more importantly watched him grip a crowd.
So, how does a gig come together and how might it change mid show?
Secondly, I wanted to chat about 1960, Martyn's most recent and maybe best record ever when he trails through his life and in the subjectivity of his life touches all of our lives.
Listen to the interview here, with a sneaky wee live snippet, almost bootleg sounding, of Martyn's very first social comment song - Ballad For The Children Of Ireland.
