Biography

Andreas Bruhn started playing the guitar at the age of fourteen, laying the foundations for a pioneering career in music. He got involved with bands very young, soon achieving the distinction of being the only German member of the legendary The Sisters of Mercy (playing guitar on the album Vision Thing). His last day of community work (instead of military service) in April 1989 was also his first day with THE SISTERS OF MERCY. He had just turned 20.

The SISTERS had not performed live for 5 years, but in 1990 the new line-up hit the stage for the worldwide ‘Vision Thing’ tour, with Bruhn as musical director. Andreas had worked with The SISTERS mastermind Andrew Eldritch on the ‘Vision Thing’ Album, composing the music for the B-side: ‘You could be the one’ and the Album track ‘Detonation Boulevard’, as well as working on the singles ‘When you don«t see me’ and ‘Doctor Jeep’, which also appeared on the Album . According to Andreas he was the only one besides Eldritch who really contributed to the record.

He left the band in 1992 and entered the German top 100 with his solo Album ‘Broon’. His second Album ‘Egoism’ soon followed. His songs are about cheating, lust, broken hearts and hope. The lyrics to his first single ‘On my side’ (remixed by David Z. in the Paisley Park Studios) deal with unfulfilled expectations.
After years of successful producing at the Egoism Inc. Studio, Andreas Bruhn moved to a new studio, Ego Park in 1997. Now, predictably, he produces hit after hit, often in collaboration with fellow producer Oliver Goedecke (alias D.O.N.S.).

    The first album is one of my favourite pieces in my music collection. I can hear it over and over again and raises instantly my mood to higher spheres.

    Is Egoism any good? Got the first album and it rocks.
