The 2018 Austrian Eurovision representative, Cesár Sampson, has recorded a special New Year’s greeting specially for you!
Cesár Sampson has a special New Year’s gift for our readers. The Austrian 2018 Eurovision hopeful wishes you all a Happy New Year!
Cesár Sampson was selected via an internal selection by Austrian national broadcaster, ORF, in order to defend the Austrian colours at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. The Austrian hopeful is no new face when it comes to Eurovision, as he has been part of #teamBulgaria.
As a member of Symphonix International, he was part of the Vienna based producers collective that lead Bulgaria to their historical fourth and second places in Eurovision 2016 and 2017. Together they created Austria’s entry for Lisbon, which will be unveiled in the new year.
Cesár isn’t an unknown quantity in the domestic music scene either. At the age of seventeen, he started touring the world as the lead singer for some of Austria’s most internationally acclaimed alternative music acts (Kruder & Dorfmeister, Sofa Surfers, Louie Austen).
After that he mainly worked from behind the scenes of the music business, as a songwriter, lyricist and vocal producer in various international productions. In Austria he wrote Louie Austen’s latest album What a comeback among others.
