About the Band:

Brainstory is a tale of brothers bounded by blood, by fate, and a small town with nothing to do. Kevin and Tony Martin, along with drummer, Eric Hagstrom, make up Brainstory, a band that’s all about stripped down funk, jazz improvisation, and spacious vocal harmony seeking to take the listener to a place of expansion, a place of dancing, liberation, and love.

From the San Bernardino Valley, brothers Kevin and Tony Martin grew up in a rich musical world inspired by their father’s love of Gospel, their grandparent’s avid love of jazz, and their own love of punk. Miles Davis, The Doors, and Bob Dylan were only some of the wide array of eclectic influences that inspired them. While Tony spent years in the San Francisco Bay Area honing his jazz chops with his upright bass, Kevin played guitar with local acts. Encouraged by longtime friends, Chicano Batman, Kevin began to create his own project. Thus, Brainstory.

Originally an acoustic guitar duo, the band grew into a full piece outfit with the return of Tony and the addition of longtime jazz trio member, drummer, Eric Hagstrom. Armed with a renewed love for the electric jazz sounds of their inspiration, the trio of destiny was now complete. The work on the new EP Brainstory Presents: A Natural Phantasm began in 2012. The album released on El Relleno Records in 2015. Their eponymous mini-album, Brainstory, was released in 2017.
