Branden Martin
Kentucky native Branden Martin is set to release his debut album 001 on Friday, August 12. This 13-track album features five co-penned award-winning songs.

I wrote these songs while I was dealing with some of life’s challenges. Though we didn’t go into this project with a collective theme in mind, these songs captured a unique period of my life; so they ended up having an underlying theme when we wrapped it up. My previous EPs served as a preface for this new album 001, so this is my Chapter 1.”– Branden Martin

With 001, an album produced by Kyle Manner (Brad Paisley & Dierks Bentley), Branden brings vulnerable songs about real life to his fans, with gritty country riffs boldly setting him apart. His authentic songwriting envelops listeners to share in the struggles of love and life.
