Melanie Martinez Wiki

Brother is a character created by Melanie Martinez for her debut album, Cry Baby. He is portrayed by Edwin Zabala in "Dollhouse" and Ian Volandt in "Cry Baby."


Brother is first mentioned in "Dollhouse" as part of Cry Baby's family. Cry Baby mentions that he is "smoking cannabis", indicating that he has a marijuana addiction, in which his mother does not seem to care. In the music video he is seen smoking and growing marijuana plants in his room.

Brother appears in the music video for "Cry Baby" as a young boy. He lights his Mom's cigarette, which foreshadows his smoking addiction as a teenager in Dollhouse. It is also shown that he is the reason why Cry Baby was given her name, as he wrote it down on the birth certificate when his mother groaned about his sister being a "crybaby".

Brother is older than Cry Baby. He is portrayed as both a young boy and an older teen.


  • Although only being mentioned once on the album, he appears in two music videos.
