We all know the stories of groundbreaking bands and musicians like the Beach Boys, but you probably haven’t heard Brian Wilson’s story and the album called SMiLE that was never finished.

Season 4 of “BLOOD ON THE TRACKS” is all about pressure, expectation, and being pushed to the limit while digging into what led Brian Wilson to go down a path of self-medication that made him paranoid beyond belief. Tune into the first episode of this season’s “BLOOD ON THE TRACKS” to learn more about Brian’s journey in a part true crime, part historical fiction, part spoken word lo-fi beat noir brought to you by Jake Brennan.
