It all started when Maria and Dan were living abroad and collaborated on “Martin”, the last track on their debut EP, a song about Maria’s dying dog. 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 do. As soon as they returned to the U.S. in 2016, they formed Brother Martin.
The Philadelphia-based indie pop band is comprised of Maria Mirenzi, Dan Espie, Jake Kelberman, Jack Synoski, and Austin Wagner, who all met in music school once upon a time. The band creates a quirky, dreamy world that is intimate and powerful, blending contrasting styles. Imagine if Portishead and Carol King had a baby.
After their release of “Led-Son”, the band toured throughout New Jersey, New York, Baltimore and Asheville. They are now setting their sights on grander adventures!

"This sweet lil EP knows exactly what it's doing the whole way through, and it is a truly impressive put out for Brother Martin, seeing as the debut EP feels solid and put together." - The Hook Journal
