In 2015 when Maria and Dan were living in 2 different countries, they began a long-distance musical collaboration on “Martin,” a song about Maria’s dying dog, which is the last track on their debut EP. There’s something so heartbreaking about not being able to say goodbye to the pet you grew up with, but a song would have to suffice. It always does. Their first song captures the band’s sensitivity and depth — you can’t help but feel a little weepy. When they returned to the U.S. in 2016, they formed Brother Martin and continued to write songs about their neighborhood’s lead pollution, political anti-anthems, and songs of divorce.
The Philly-based indie rock band is led by singer/saxophonist/accordionist, Maria Mirenzi, and pianist/vocalist, Daniel Espie. The band creates a quirky, dreamy world that is intimate and powerful, blending styles of rock, jazz and folk.
Their debut EP “Led-Son” was released in January of 2018.
They are currently back in the studio working on their first full-length album and are set to release 2 new singles in the summer of 2019.
