Brothertunes, namely Philly Hansen (guitarist) and Rich Fonje (vocals), have just completed their much-awaited album "Million things to Say", which was produced with no other than RnB/Neo Soul, multi-instrumentalist and Grammy Award winner VAN HUNT and mixed by another big name HANS- MARTIN BUFF , who has worked for over four years at the Paisley Park Studios and as "personal engineer" for Prince. The Bernese band, Brothertunes, made firm footing within the Swiss music scene when winning first prize in the category Pop/Rock at the M4Music (05). Their first radio single “Sincerely yours “ entered the charts straight into the Top 50.
In April 2006 they went on to be voted the “Swiss Top Act “of the month by Swiss National Radio DRS3. Shortly after, the German music magazine "Musikmarkt" praised the two aspiring Swiss artists and their album, convinced that their talent would be recognised beyond Swiss boarders. Further success followed in October 2006, when Brothertunes were voted by listeners of Radio Swiss Pop as the “Swiss Newcomers of the Year”.
This was the first time that such an award was presented by Radio Swiss Pop, so quite an achievement!
