Daisy Martin (fl. c.1914-c.1925) was an African American actress and blues singer who performed in the classic female blues style that was popular during the 1920s. She toured America's eastern and midwestern states in black vaudeville in the 1910s and early 1920s. In 1914 she appeared in the revue My Friend From Kentucky at the National Theater in Chicago, Illinois. In 1917 she performed in the musical comedy My People, which also featured Sam Gray and Julia Moody. In 1920 she appeared at the Strand Theatre in Chicago in the revue Hello 1919. Daisy Martin became one of the first black women to sing blues on recordings when she recorded for the Gennett and Okeh labels in April 1921. On her first sides, "Royal Garden Blues" and "Spread Yo' Stuff," she was accompanied by the Five Jazz Bell Hops, whose identities are unknown. In total she recorded 16 sides, ending with her final session in July 1923.show more
