Joe Martin | Barnoldswick Music & Arts Centre
June 30 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
After what feels like a lifetime of no live music Joe Martin has been eagerly waiting to connect with an audience again. His UK tour this June promises a night of ‘Americana songs and stories as seen through Joe’s British eyes’. Joe has been performing his American Folk sound to audiences all over the UK and Europe for the past few years, but unlike previous tours he is bringing his full band along with him this time. He insists that his songs be performed the way he intended them to be. The tour will celebrate the release of his newest EP ‘Bound For Lonesome’, which comes hot on the heels of singles ‘Heartbreak Cult’ and ‘Doesn’t Rain in LA’. Both singles were released to critical acclaim by the British Country and Americana scene, receiving airplay on Country Hits Radio and Chris Country Radio.
Joe explains; ‘I’ve been sat on these songs for a while, playing them out in the States as well as all around the UK, as I first wrote them, on my guitar, stripped back, with the lyric front and centre. On this tour, I want to bring a full band sound and step up the energy, show people how the songs can be with a great backing of talented musicians. We’ll be playing the EP in full, renewing some old songs with the band and debuting some brand-new songs that have been waiting to be heard! I’ve had a tour like this in the works for a while now and after a year of not being able to do what I love doing most, live shows, it’s finally time to make it happen. I’m really excited to be back playing for a crowd and I hope it will get people fired up about live music again.’
