Biography

Claudia Brücken (born 7 December 1963, Berching, Germany) is a German singer who fronted the synthpop groups Propaganda and Act. Since 1996 she is working with her current partner Paul Humphreys, first without a name, since 2004 as Onetwo. Together they also founded the independent record label There(There).

In 1982 Claudia joined German band Propaganda and relocated to London when they signed with ZTT Records. She was married on 14 February 1985 to Paul Morley, one of the ZTT conceivers. A few months later, the first Propaganda album A Secret Wish was released. While promoting their first album and writing songs for a new album, internal tensions rose. This was mainly caused by the relationship between Brücken and Morley, and the profitless contract the band had signed with ZTT. In 1986 Propaganda left ZTT, and Claudia left Propaganda to stay with ZTT.

She joined Thomas Leer to form Act, who in 1988 released their only album Laughter, Tears and Rage. In 1991 she released a solo album Love: And a Million Other Things for Island Records. In the United Kingdom two singles were released from this album “Absolut(e)” in 1990, and “Kiss Like Ether” in 1991. The rest of the 90s, Brücken concentrated mainly on motherhood (she has a daughter, Maddy, with Paul Morley) and made some guest performances on albums of other artists. She met Paul Humphreys (of OMD) in 1996 when she was working on songs for a possible second solo album. They started just as co-writers, but now live and work together in London.
