On the 21st and 22nd November, the Public Broadcasting Services will be hosting the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest at the Marsa Shipbuilding. 20 acts will be taking centre stage, in hope of representing the country at next year’s edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, being held in Vienna, Austria. Over the next couple of weeks, escflashmalta.com will be publishing a series of interviews with all the participants. Whilst thanking the Public Broadcasting Services for this opportunity, we are pleased to introduce Lyndsay.
Would you kindly introduce your entry to our readers and also identify the meaning behind the lyrics?
Hello dear readers 😀 my song is entitled “Home”, written and produced by Boris Cezek. It’s a power ballad which talks about the journey of finding a place where you belong and being loved endlessly.
In Malta, the Eurovision Song Contest is considered to be a major outlet for the music industry, and you stand here as one of the semi-finalists. What does the whole experience mean to you?
This experience is undoubtedly a turning point in my music career and such a golden opportunity to express my talents on a wider scale, being the most popular local festival in Malta. It’s my first time in the festival and I’m very excited to be opening the show on the night!
Recently, Malta has been rather successful at the Eurovision Song Contest, making the final on four of the last five participation attempts. What do you think is the reason for this success, and do you believe that your entry has what it takes to continue this positive trend?
Well, I think there are many reasons for this success. First and foremost, I’m very happy that we are finally learning to give a chance to the new comers and appreciate real music. I also think that there has been so much improvement in general and I believe that it’s completely fair for the jury to cast their final votes, choosing the winner based on a wise decision.
I think that my Eurovision entry is strong enough to stand out and I believe that I have a professional team behind me to give my very best on the night. I also think that the song brings out the potential in my voice and it suits me perfectly as an artist. It would be such an honour to represent my country in the contest and I feel ready to carry out the responsibility!
If you were given the opportunity to sing another one of the competing entries in the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, which one would it be and why?
Hmmm…well there are my favourites of course but I still wouldn’t sing another song from the competing entries as I feel that my entry is too special and made especially for me on a personal note.
Do you have any plans to release more music in the future, and do you have any particular projects in the pipeline?
Yes 😀 my music career is like a roller coaster ride from one opportunity to another and I just love it! In fact, I’m working on a very exciting project at the moment were I have been handpicked to work on a debut album collaborating with professional management to be exposed towards international labels and markets in the music industry for the upcoming year. Fingers crossed!
Would you like to say anything to our readers at escflashmalta.com?
I would like to thank everyone for the ongoing support and feedback towards my song and participation in the festival. It has been such a fun journey so far and I just can’t wait for the final night. May the best song win!
