This website

This is the official John Martyn Website endorsed by John’s estate. This site is published by John Hillarby who is a fan of John’s music just like you and other visitors to the site. This is the only website dedicated to John Martyn that John himself endorsed and approved, John appreciated this site and the contribution made to it by you, his fans. This is not a record company site, it is totally independent. Record companies come and go, we’ve supported and promoted John for over 14 years now and we’ll still be here in another 14 years and for even longer!

Even though John is no longer with us it is important that we continue to celebrate John and his music and that is exactly what we do here on JohnMartyn.Com!

Who operates the website shop?

The shop is an affiliate store operated by Amazon. We’ve been promoting and selling John’s music on JohnMartyn.Com for over 13 years, so please support the website and buy your music, DVDs etc through our shop. Thank you for your support.
