Front man Georgian Banov immigrated from Bulgaria during the 1960’s. Georgian Banov was born in communist Bulgaria. As a teenager, he was a founding member of the first official rock'n roll band in the country. He escaped the iron curtain and was mightily saved after coming to the United States. It was during the tale end of the Jesus Movement in 1974 that he had a powerful encounter with Christ in Southern California. Soon after getting saved, he became a leader of Silverwind in the1980's. He was also the co-writer and co-producer of famous children classics such as Music Machine and Bullfrogs and Butterflies, which sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide and earned Grammy & Dove Awards.
