Mastering musical styles with Daphne Lee Martin & Raise the Rent

Published March 31. 2011 4:00AM

Daphne Lee Martin & Raise the Rent are the musical equivalent of a Happy Hour where you go from drink-to-drink, and it all mixes together in wonderful ways you'd never have believed. They sway from Dixieland to Western swing and zydeco to life-is-a-cabaret/sophisto-lounge treatments - and do so with a sly, sweltering spirit of confident fun.

To answer a question: yes, the long-rumored CD is tentatively slotted for a September release. The tracks are recorded, they're in the mixing-then-mastering stages, and even videos are being shot as we speak.

In preparation, RTR is gearing up for a heavy touring season all over the region; it kicks off Friday at Sneekers in Groton.
