THE JOHN MARTYN PROJECT
Featuring Blythe Pepino, Kit Hawes, Pete Josef and Sam Brookes – This is a special project where four artists come together to celebrate the music of John Martyn. Each brings their own story and connection to John’s music which adds to the fabric of the overall experience of the project.
In the wake of a special sold out show in July 2018 at the Jazz café in London the thought of not doing this again was unfathomable and so The John Martyn Project was born. Featuring four of the most interesting vocalists spanning several different musical paths of the UK music scene, the many different aspects and eras of Martyns music is delivered in a sensitive and poignant manner.
‘With his keening tenor vibrato sailing effortlessly into the upper register, there’s something of Tim Buckley about Sam Brookes’
‘[Kit] plays with dazzling virtuosity’
