escflashmalta.com in collaboration with Ironic PR & Artist Management is proud to present a monthly blog written by Davinia, a two-time Malta Eurovision Song Contest participant, and currently one of the most recognised female vocalists in the country. Since emerging onto the local music scene back in 2011 with "Bottled My Teardrops", a number #1 hit on Malta's Top Ten with Nathan D on 89.7 Bay, she has been working in the studio night and day, doing what she enjoys doing the best. With her latest single "Ouch!" composed by Carlo Gerada with lyrics by Matthew Mercieca, Davinia has managed to peak at number #3 whilst maintaining a top ten position for more than a month, signalling that she is still well into form with a bright future ahead.

July!! What a busy month it has been, especially with the seasonal plans to move to the United States of America. It will definitely be a new challenge for me but knowing that I will be working even harder to succeed gives me the energy and drive to do it in the best possible manner. Without getting all emotional and teary eyed, something that will eventually happen, mark my words! I would like to thank you all for the massive support throughout these past couple of years, noting that taking part in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest has given me the opportunity to get noticed by a larger segment of the audience, one who appreciates the music I put out there. Anyway, enough with the chit-chat, these are my TOP TWO songs for the month of June!

Chandelier - Sia (Aus)

Sia's vocals on this track are are just inhumane, they are so good !!! I havent hear sia ever sing like this in any of her songs shes always the type of artist to have a very chilled vibe to her work but what shes done here is pure genius so so powerful! definatley my ultimate summer track!

Summer - Calvin Harris (UK)

The title of the song speaks for itself ! such a summer tune everytime it comes on the crowd goes wild , great vibe well done calvin once again

Kylie, a female vocalist whose credits include participation in both the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza and the Malta Eurovision Song Contest is back with "Someday Soon", a new single composed by Carlo Gerada to the lyrics of Matthew Mercieca, recently co-responsible for Davinia's radio hit "Ouch!". For several years, Kylie was known as the younger sister of Klinsmann, currently front-man of the band Planet Seed, for the simple reason that he had achieved status on the first time of asking, by virtue of finishing in third place at the 2007 edition of the Malta Song for Europe, behind Olivia Lewis and Trilogy. 

Kylie made her impact in the local music scene by reaching the final of the Malta Eurosong competition in 2009, with her entry "Let It Shine" languishing in a bottom position. It was not a taste of things to come with success following in the next couple of years. In the meantime, "Someday Soon" marks the first original song in English for the female vocalist since the track "Day After Day" which competed in the 2011 edition of the Summer Hit Song Contest, which in turn is making it's return on F Living this weekend. The song, a mixture of genres, is progressive and gives the listener a good vibe. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news from the local music scene.

June!! Known to be the month where everybody finishes exams, the days grow longer, and people are always sun kissed, meaning that happiness is spread quickly. It is also the time for sun, sun, sun, and of course, a couple of parties here and there. Music is still at the forefront of my daily routine, and the music released this past month deserves a round of applause, because it is off the beat. In the meantime though, I would like to thank you ALL for the massive support that you have given my latest single "Ouch!" which has been receiving AMAZING feedback both from YOU the general public as well as radio stations alike. Anyway, enough with the chit-chat, these are my TOP FOUR songs for the month of June!

Shake That - Dansson & Marlon Hoffstadt (DE)

This is by far the best tune this month, and everytime it comes on the radio or at a party, I automatically get into a good mood and start dancing :) It has an extremely good vibe and the rhythm is just awesome.

Marilyn Monroe - Pharell Williams (US)

It would have been silly to leave this out of the top tunes of the month, considering that I adore every second of this song. His vocals are so slick on this track that it takes me back in time. That said, it does have a modern twist, and one which will be on several playlists during the course of June and the rest of the summer months.

Solo Dancing - Indiana (UK)

If you have not heard this track just yet, then you are going to fall in love, instantly. It is catchy and addictive, giving the listener a sense of peace and freedom. It is going to be another one of thise massive ones this season, for sure.

A Sky full of Stars - Coldplay (UK)

Coldplay need no introduction in music, and they have indeed done it again. This track is beautiful, making you think of that someone special, and giving you hope that one is in love whatever the circumstances in life actually are! :)

Whilst listening to Malta's Top Ten with Nathan D on 89.7 Bay a couple of years back, I remember one female vocalist in particular. Peaking at number #1 with a debut single is not easy, but this was Davinia, an individual who works hard and never takes no for an answer. Acquiring the attention of songwriters Elton Zarb and Matthew Mercieca, a fruitful collaboration ensued leading to the release of "Feel Good Song" and "Sail Away", successful radio singles.

It was towards the end of 2012 that Davinia tried her luck and sent in a submission to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. "Betrayed" had a Bond vibe surrounding it and the professional panel of judges definitely made the right call by putting it through, eventually allocating it in third place. A debut which led to a top three finish in a year where the festival was seemingly all about Kevin Borg. Davinia has not shied away from the local music scene in the past year, going onto release three singles; "You are my Home", "Brand New Day" and most recently "Ouch!", the latter being a collaboration with Matthew Mercieca and Carlo Gerada.

On Monday 12th May, established female vocalist Davinia released her new single 'OUCH!' across the airwaves in Malta. Nevertheless, for those wishing to purchase a copy of the track, it will be available on major digital platforms such as iTunes, Deezer and Amazon as from the 24th May. The track is a collaboration with award-winning Maltese DJ and producer Carlo Gerada, singer/songwriter Matt Mercieca, with mastering by Elton Zarb at Freetime Studios.  The two latter names are responsible for Davinia’s past releases, ‘Sail Away’, ‘Betrayed’ and ‘You Are My Home’.

'OUCH!' is the second release of Davinia in 2014, having previously published 'Brand New Day', the song with which she made it through to the finals of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, and was then subsequently released on all major platforms following public demand. With lyrics symbolic to new beginnings, positive outlook and restored hope, Davinia dedicated ‘Brand New Day’ to the LGBT community in support of the passing of the Civil Union Bill in Maltese Parliament. The passing of this bill was celebrated by a mini-concert held in Palace Square last month, and was headlined by Davinia herself. In stark contrast, ‘OUCH!’ adds new colour to Davinia’s already colourful muscial portfolio. 

Known mainly for jazz and soul influenced ballads, this latest offering is a bold move away from Davinia’s past work. Although ‘OUCH!’ talks about a failing relationship, it posseses playful elements, with a beat tailored to a fun and mischevious Mediterranean summer. As a genre, ‘OUCH!’ classifies as Electronic Dance Music (EDM) which at times shifts towards Dance. It is expected to be played at Malta’s top festivals and clubs over summer, including Society and an open air venue, for which details will follow. 

We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, for more information above Davinia and her latest projects, please visit either her Official Website or her Official Facebook Page.
