Teemu William Brunila[1] (born November 24, 1976) is a Finnish singer, songwriter, musician and producer. Brunila became known as the lead vocalist and songwriter for the Turku-based pop group The Crash. During their career, the band released four studio albums and one compilation album.[2]

Later career

After The Crash disbanded, Brunila has concentrated on writing music for other Finnish artists, including Anna Abreu and Jenni Vartiainen. He has also written songs for British acts like Pixie Lott and JLS and American R&B artist Trey Songz.[3] When a song "Never Again" was featured on Songz's album Chapter V, Brunila became the first Finn to have co-written a song for an album at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart.[4]

Studio Killers

In 2011, a new virtual band Studio Killers started to gain success with their single "Ode to the Bouncer" and was said to have members from Finland, Denmark and the United Kingdom. The group has never disclosed the identities of its members, but Brunila is assumed to be the band's singer.[5]
