First 2022 entry: Intelligent Music Project - Intention 🇧🇬05 December 2021 at 16:30 CET
The band’s participation was announced at a special press conference given by the CEO of broadcaster BNT Emil Koshlukov and Dr. Milen Vrabevski; creator of Intelligent Music Project, with its ever-changing line-up of superstars.
Perhaps the biggest surprise is that rock god Ronnie Romero (lead vocalist of legendary Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow) will front the ensemble!
The band also features Bisser Ivanov, Slavin Slavchev (the winner of X-Factor Bulgaria), Ivo Stefanov, Dimiter Sirakov and drummer Stoyan Yankoulov.
Eurovision fans will recognise Stoyan from his two previous outings at the Contest with vocalist Elitsa: Voda (Water) finished 5th in Helsinki 2007, while Samo Shampioni narrowly missed out on a Grand Final place in Malmö 2013.
For those about to rock… 🤘
Over the years some of the most popular rock musicians in the world have contributed to the project, including: Simon Phillips (TOTO, Protocol), Bobby Rondinelli (Rainbow, Black Sabbath), Joseph Williams (TOTO), John Payne (ex-Asia), John Lawton (Uriah Heep, Lucifer’s Friend), Carl Sentence (Nazareth), Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, etc.), Todd Sucherman (Styx), and Time Pierce (Joe Cocker, Michael Jackson).
If you’re into hard-rock songs with progressive hooks, driven by catchy guitar riffs and keyboards, there’s plenty of Intelligent Music Group’s back catalogue to enjoy online.
As we learned in Rotterdam: rock and roll never dies!
