Through the national final season, we’ve been teased on who Bulgaria will be choosing for Eurovision this year, with a bunch of song titles and hints thrown at us earlier this year. Yesterday we saw the social media accounts light up as the reveal loomed closer.
Yesterday it became clear that a group titled Equinox would be representing the recently successful Eurovision nation with the song called Bones, and the delegation also decided to release the lyrics of the song. Fast forward a day, and we now know the details behind who has written the song as well as who will be performing.
The song, Bones, was produced by Symphonix International, who you’ll know also worked on Austria’s entry this year. The team behind this was Borislav Milanov, Trey Campbell, Joacim Persson and Dag Lundberg. Symphonix International has been a part of a bunch of recent Eurovision entries, including the last two Bulgarian entries which have been the best placing Bulgarian songs in Eurovision history.
The group Equinox consists of five members:
Zhana Bergendorff, who was the winner of the second season of Bulgaria’s version of the X Factor back in 2013. She has become a successful but at times controversial artist recently
Vlado Mihailov, who is a singer/songwriter from Bulgaria and the lead on popular groups Safo and Sleng. He was also a backing vocalist for Kristian Kostov at Eurovision last year
Georgi Simenov, who is a singer, songwriter and producer. He started off in a boyband, but broke out as a solo act in 2013, and has since worked as a vocal producer for some of Bulgaria’s most popular acts
Johnny Manuel, who originates from the USA and came to fame on America’s Got Talent, where he reached the semi-final. He is also working on his debut album with Symphonix International
Trey Campbell, who is an LA based songwriter and one of the composers of the song. He writes for artists such as Bebe Rexha, Julie Bergan and Alexandra Stan
