- Simeon Lozanov – Monyx was born in 1976 in Sofia. He debuted on the Bulgarian music scene in 1995 with the band “Coco Mania” as its founder and guitarist. Their first hit single, which he wrote, called “You didn’t come” and went directly into BG Radio’s chart “The greatest 1000”.
He deals with music for 14 years, his involvement includes sound engineering and sound recording. Currently Monyx is one of the most sought sound engineers for big concerts and studio recordings.
After the group “Coco Mania” split in 2009, Monyx went through a difficult period, during which he almost gave up playing and even wanted to sale his instruments and equipment at one point. His relatives changed these negative plans and inspired him for a new beginning.
He decided to start a solo project, in which he will not be only a guitar player, but also a singer.
In December 2009 he wrote his first single “Coffee is over”. The song is supported by close friends of Monyx. For the text he trusted Hristo Hristov, guitarist of PIF.
In February 2010 Monyx filmed the video for ‘Coffee Is Over’ with a team assembled by Adriana Yankulova. The video completes the emotion of the song. It spread incredibly quickly from person to person among musicians and fans even before the official promotion. In September 2010 “Coffee is over” entered MTV – World Chart Express and the band was invited to take part of SeeMe Music Conference. In July 2011 the song reached the first place in to the American chart for indie music “The Radio Cafe Top 10 Indie Music Countdown” in the Detroit radio WDVD-FM – 96.3 fm and stayed there for four weeks. The single is so successful that it leaves no doubt that MONYX will be noticed.
On 24th of June 2011 Monyx has played on the main stage at Elevation Music Festival alongside Stereo MC’s, Morcheeba, Hurts and Jamiroquai. http://www.elevation.bg/
His first album “Coffee is over” was released in 2013 and it’s available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and other digital stores. The lyrics included in the album was written by Hristo Hristov & Svetoslav Todorov.
