The Berliner-by-choice plays more than just guitar, he sings, breathes, spits, makes infinitely beautiful and ugly things visible. One is spared elsewhere. Tristan Brusch's talent only fully unfolds when you experience him on stage. He doesn't spare himself, not the audience, just sitting next to them with a beer, that's not possible here. Stage magic, that's a word for the next time you play Scrabble, but at a Tristan Brusch concert you get an idea of what that could actually mean.
Still, it took eleven English-language albums until we can now experience Brusch in this way. In German. Raised on classical music and violin lessons, he wrote his first songs at the age of 14 and toured after school with the album "My Ivory Mind", released in 2008. But despite numerous releases, success was a long time coming. Then came the turning point in 2012: Markus Winter, alias Maeckes, became aware of the native of Tübingen and sampled the melancholy acoustic guitar from Tristan's song "Little Funny Man" for the Orsons hit "Jetzt". The resulting contact eventually leads Brusch to German lyrics, he becomes standard support for the Orsons, collaborates with Mine and Cro, is significantly involved in Maeckes' 2016 solo album "Tilt" and is signed to the Berlin label Staatsakt. His music moves between light electronic indie pop and schlager, which is why he expressed an unusual wish to DIFFUS: "[...] I want Helene Fischer to no longer be a schlager goddess, but I to be the new schlager goddess."
Tristan Brusch's concert is part of the funding project "c/o pop 2022 musichubgermany " and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
