JOE MARTIN


Joe Martin, a Lancashire based singer songwriter is deservedly gaining major attention on both sides of the Atlantic. As a child Joe was brought up listening to artists from Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt to the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. Songs that tell a story played a big part in what Joe would be listening to in his formative years. This can be heard in the music he’s making now.

As a teenager Joe fronted a country band whilst living in Leeds and studying at university. The band played original songs and toured the UK opening for artists like the Shires and appearing at festivals such as Country to Country. But now as a solo artist Joe has found himself performing more shows around the UK and further afield in Europe and Stateside.

The past few years have been an experience-rich journey helping Joe refine his song writing and storytelling craft. Playing the pre-eminent Bluebird Cafe in Nashville Tennessee was a profound moment for Joe, the feeling of coming full circle, after being inspired by the show Nashville on which the Bluebird was regularly featured. Meeting and taking advice from his song writing idol John Paul White of the Civil Wars a week before his Bluebird debut was also an inspirational moment.

ROB GODFREY


Cambridge born Rob Godfrey is a 22-year-old London based singer-songwriter, Described as “Folk music infused with a voice like liquid gold and a little Latin sass”, his unique sound comes as an amalgamation of folk, jazz, soul and pop, combined with a slightly bitter and twisted outlook on life.

Rob’s debut EP ‘So Alive’ was released in 2016 at a sold out hometown show and received consistently positive reviews (“an awesome EP,” – Pure M Magazine) – the EP went on to reach the top 20 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.
