Discovered at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, UK’s singer-songwriter Joe Martin is now coming to London for one show at the The Islington.
Joe Martin is a singer-songwriter based in the north west of England, and his story-telling writing style rooted in the country genre has seen him perform his own songs to audiences all over the world including the home of country music itself; Nashville Tennessee. Joe has always loved country and American folk music, growing up listening to artists such as James Taylor, Glen Campbell, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan. It was only after stumbling across artists such as the Civil Wars, Chris Stapleton and more recently Jason Isbell and Brent Cobb did Joe realise Americana was alive and kicking!
After also being largely inspired by the American TV show, ‘Nashville’, it was a humbling moment when Joe was asked to perform at the pre-eminent Bluebird Cafe.
“The night I was at the Bluebird, a young Englishman with a rich voice named Joe Martin seemed primed for bigger things” – Jeremy Egner, New York Times
Nashville had a lot in store for Joe, from meeting one of his idols John Paul White to writing with Garth Brooks’ guitarist, Johnny Garcia and Dave Cobb’s in-house songwriter Aaron Raitiere at RCA studios.
Joe gigs extensively around the UK and has recently performed at venues ranging from Liverpool’s Cavern Club, to the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow. He has released two singles over the past six months and plans to release his next single ‘Letters Of Regret’ mid-May.
“Joe Martin is an artist who knows who he wants to be and has a voice of his own, a rare original glimmer in a sea of Nashville wannabes” – Six Shooter Country
