Amy Black and Daphne Lee Martin & Raising the Rent
Amy Black is a Boston based singer/songwriter with storytelling and Southern tradition in her blood. In record time, she’s become one of the most sought after acts in New England, sharing stages with Chris Isaak,The Courtyard Hounds, Suzy Boggus and Rodney Crowell and playing to a packed house at The Boston Music Festival. Black also recently made her mark down south on the live radio show Music City Roots hosted by Jim Lauderdale, and as a headliner at The Basement (Nashville) and Eddie’s Attic (Georgia).
The Boston Herald wrote that her “stunning debut” of original music on One Time brims with “beautifully imagined sound and soul.”
Wrung from the rags of New London’s speakeasies, Daphne Lee Martin & Raise the Rent stir together a wicked musical cocktail. Fusing honky-tonk torch vocals with swing and gypsy fiddling, swirling jazz-pop, and ragtime harmony singing, they bring together the gems of their own original songs with a top-shelf selection of beloved American broadsides of a bygone age.
