Two Ways Home & Joe Martin | The Castle Hotel, Manchester

July 6 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Two Ways Home & Joe Martin - Manchester

Two Ways Home are made up of songwriters Isabella MaK from Vienna, Austria and Gloucestershire lad Lewis Fowler. A trip to Nashville in 2013 inspired a new name and  anchored their love for Folk-Rock, Country and Americana music. The pair have been  honing their craft and have released several Eps as well as standalone singles.

Since the release of their debut EP back in 2015, Isabella and Lewis have established  themselves as firm favourites on the British Country/Americana scene, having shared  stages with the likes of Phil Vassar and Sarah Darling as well as performing at popular  festivals such as Nashville Meets London and The Long Road.

After being discovered and playlisted by Caffe Nero across 600+ stores worldwide, Lewis  and Isabella embarked on a tour in 2019, playing 33 shows in 3 weeks ending with them  being crowned Caffé Nero “Artist of the Month” in the October of that year.

They’ve also made waves internationally, touring in the US and throughout Europe.  Receiving great support in Germany and Austria, their music has been playlisted in  McDonald’s and major shopping centres throughout the country.

Their ‘Closest Stranger’ EP garnered support from Chris Country Radio, Country Hits  Radio and BBC regional stations have been long-time supporters.

The duo have also been trailblazers for the country scene in London, hosting their own  songwriter event ‘The Round Up’, which has attracted high-profile names from Nashville  such as Charlie Worsham and Lainey Wilson, whilst giving a fantastic platform for  homegrown talent.


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.’
