Meet Daphne – After a whirlwind affair with roots music, garnering her several songwriting and performance awards, including CT Music Awards’ 2012 Country Artist of the Year and Whalie Awards’ Album of the Year, Daphne Lee Martin is back in force with a new collection of songs on her latest pair of records, Frost & Moxie (Telegraph Recording Company).

Moxie charted in the Top 200 CMJ weekly chart (with over 45 adds) and was included in Under the Radar’s official SXSW Sampler followed by three national tours including SXSW. In 2014 Daphne was nominated in the New England Music Awards for Female Performer of the Year as well as the CT Music Awards Singer/Songwriter of the Year.What’s Next?
