Daphne Lee Martin - Masterpiece (Big Thief)


A new music series and a return to publishing. Born in the Quarantine. We've all been around a lot longer than the last year but it seems like we are learning new ways to get by. Music has always been there for me but I've found that by challenging myself to learn about and share the new music being founded in the midst of this horrible mess... the art and the shared experience might just be what we need to find our light. 

This woman is a gift. One of my favorite vocalists, and a thoughtful writer - Daphne Lee Martin is a living paintbrush (and the perfect subject to kick off this 2021 music series.) This song and a number of really amazing others floating around in Daphne's head have come to fruition over the last year. Some dozen-plus are going to be appearing on her upcoming album The Starter Wife (an LP) with lots of surprises (think multi-media and big). Also recorded in these small and socially segregated sessions are a series of remarkable promotional Cover Songs for which Masterpiece is the first. And what a start!

Masterpiece was:
Dane Scozzari on drums
Andrew Sovine on guitars
Daphne - vocals, arrangements, everything else
Recorded and Mixed at Pleasure Loves Company in New London, CT
Mastered by Jim Carpenter at Loco Dare Productions

Upcoming in 2021: Three years in the making, songwriter Daphne Lee Martin's The Starter Wife is the much anticipated follow-up to Martin's knockout Scared Fearless album (2018). It's a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Kieran Ledwidge and producer Duane Lundy. In her own words: "A departure from the road-weary adventurer in Scared Fearless, The Starter Wife swan dives into the maelstrom of divorce, shattering, reinvention, healing and hope."
