Hailing from Austin’s fertile indie music scene, Brazos began as the solo recording project of songwriter Martin Crane, who debuted his smart, lyrical songs in 2007 with the acclaimed EP A City Just as Tall, which The Austin Chronicle called “an exciting revelation.”

Now a full rock band, Brazos spent the majority of 2008 recording their highly-anticipated debut album, Phosphorescent Blues, a hypnotic tour-de-force that combines raw energy and dance rhythms with the subtle intricacies of jazz and folk. “Their sound is all at once jazzy and melodic, moody and bright… [2009] should be their year to make good on roughly a year and a half worth of buzz,” wrote The Tripwire.
