About Sinplus

Sinplus consists of the two brothers Ivan and Gabriel Broggini. In December 2011, they were chosen by the Swiss TV public to represent their country in Baku.

Ivan and Gabriel Broggini: Two brothers, both musicians, both with a natural talent for songwriting. They grew up listening to Queen, Bob Marley and U2 and began playing music at an early age. Ivan’s passion was the guitar from the very first. Gabriel played keyboards and drums, but soon picked up the guitar too and discovered his passion for singing. At the age of thirteen, both brothers were already playing in their own bands and were spending hours practicing in their father’s practice room.

When Gabriel left college, he decided to head to San Diego. He was able to sample the city’s underground music scene. When he returned from America, the brothers decided to form a band on their own and to write songs together. Thus they established the inFinity project. Their first single, entitled Without Identity, made it to the charts, and the corresponding video clip was broadcasted by several television stations including VIVA. They also had the chance to perform at major venues throughout Switzerland such as Kofmehl and Dynamo and won various contests.

Meanwhile the band was named “Sinplus”. The two brothers recorded a new EP entitled Get Control, produced in Zurich featuring a single entitled “1984”, which is included in a prestigious Californian compilation. At that point, the brothers felt the need for a change of scene and so set off for LA where they recorded another EP entitled Happy And Free. The single was aired on various Swiss and Italian radio stations and the video clip was broadcast in both countries. Meanwhile, the brothers wrote Shoot, a track that became one of the official anthems of the 2009 World Hockey Championships. Their song was included in a compilation featuring the top shots of the swiss music business like Krokus. Furthermore, Sinplus were given the chance to perform in front of thousands of people at various ice rinks including the BernArena in Switzerland.

On December 10th 2011 Sinplus were elected to represent Switzerland in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku with the single Unbreakable. The duo has just finished recording their first LP entitled DISINFORMATION, featuring eleven tracks, which will be released at the end of April 2012. Sinplus are currently performing in several cities all over Europe.
