“Daphne Lee Martin is the voice of futuristic folk-rock/alternative-roots music... exploring the outer reaches of nostalgic melody... ” ~ Jim Apice, No Depression
“Martin’s style is Highly unique, giving new tinges and interpretations to every song....” ~ Bill Bodkin, Pop-Break
“Crooner Daphne Lee Martin is, in every sense of the word, true to her craft.” ~ Pen’s Eye View
"Lemme tell you it's a badly behaved set of tracks. It's a liquored up weekend whose hangover lasts well into the work week." -Anthony Fantano, The Needle Drop
"With her strong writing style and sultry vocal delivery, Martin has you in the palm of her hand from track one." - Troy Michael, Innocent Words
Magnet Magazine stated it best when they said – "And now for something refreshingly unpopular: Among the people who wear giant sunglasses and tight jeans, Singer/songwriter Linda Draper has been kicking around New York's folk scene long enough to remember her antifolk coffeeshop days with Kimya Dawson and Regina Spektor; she recorded 4 albums with indie-icon producer Kramer." Despite, or perhaps because of her still relative obscurity, Linda Draper is just warming up in her second decade of a music-making career . "Pushing Up The Day", an exclusive digital EP, follows on the heels of her highly praised LP "Bridge And Tunnel" along with an appearance on the excellent tribute collection – "Beautiful Star: The Songs Of Odetta" (Wears The Trousers Records, UK) which has collected notable attention and praise via indie music bible Pitchfork and other music review outlets worldwide.
In 2001 Draper recorded her debut LP "Ricochet" with producer/indie music icon Kramer (Low, Ween, Galaxie 500, Urge Overkill, Lou Reed). Their partnership continued with her next three LP's: 2002's "Snow White Trash Girl," 2003's "Patchwork," and her debut LP with Planting Seeds Records' "One Two Three Four". In 2007 she co-produced her next LP "Keepsake" with Major Matt. In 2009, Draper returned with her 6th LP (released by Planting Seeds Records), called "Bridge and Tunnel", produced by Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson). "Quietly and methodically, New York songwriter Linda Draper has climbed into the ranks of the elite" (Lucid Culture). Drawing such comparisons to songwriting luminaries such as Joan Baez, Suzanne Vega, Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell, Linda Draper has still managed to carved out a sound that is all her own.
