Event Info

Joe Martin performs his debut album ‘Empty Passenger Seat’ stripped back and acoustic. A story telling, singer songwriter evening for fans of James Taylor / Paul Simon / Don McLean.

As described in his own words, Joe Martin is an independent singer songwriter and modern day troubadour…

As a youngster, listening to a wide range of genres from the 60s pop of the Beatles and Beach Boys to American folk artists like Simon and Garfunkel and Bob Dylan, Joe knew that he wanted to recreate that magic feeling of a captivating story through songwriting.

Now, the comment he receives most from his live audience is; ‘your songs sound beyond your years’. His descriptive lyrics capture the stories of people and encounters picked up on the road. Tales of friends and strangers blend seamlessly with Joe’s own experiences into masterfully crafted songs that paint a picture with every verse and the magic of his live performance lies is in his ability to connect a room of people with the emotions of a life they have not lived.

“Superb melodies accompanied by a fantastic voice and outstanding lyrics.” – Fatea Magazine
