Brazos is the musical project of Martin McNulty Crane. Raised in Texas and currently residing in Brooklyn, his 2009 debut brought instant notoriety and gigs with notable acts such as Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, The National, Iron & Wine, and pals White Denim. Back on the scene with an album recorded with new bandmates Spencer Zahn (bass) and Ian Chang (drums), Martin has further honed his unique style of pop storytelling. In this episode of BTR Live Studio, the trio plays some new songs and reveals the background of the project’s name.

Featured song: “Always On”

Brazos’ newest release, Saltwater, is available May 28.
