Exclusive: Escflashmalta enlists Simon Casey for CommentaryWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
The general aim of this web portal is to bring you the latest news with regards to the local music industry from across the board and the foreign one where it concerns the Eurovision Song Contest. Apart from that though, we love to make this experience even more special when it comes to the live reporting whereas we bring in heavy weight names from the local and foreign music industries to comment on the songs prior to the competition and then even for the live shows. Earlier on this week, we announced the first commentator to be none other than Raquela, a Maltese singer who takes ones breathe away but today, we unveil our foreign commentator for the second semi-final, a man who hails from the country of Ireland, the stunning Simon Casey.
Clearly he is a man who does not require a lot of introduction having joined the panel for the past two years making this a third time. Without a doubt, we are always honoured to be working with such a professional artist. Simon first appeared on the Irish music scene through the competition You're A Star which was selecting the Irish representative and entry for the Eurovision Song Contest between 2003 and 2005 owing to mixed fortunes. The songbird took to the stage of the finals of the competition with a song entitled The Better Plan, a song which was finish second yet still top the charts and also receiving a triple platinum certification. This would lead to a record deal with Universal Music Ireland which released his first two albums, one entitled The Heart and Not Like Me both which received a certification, one platinum and one gold. Following a different direction in creativity, he parted ways with Universal Music Ireland and is soon ready to release his third album as an independent artist. His latest music is astonishing because it truly comes from within the soul and the talent that makes him special is still very much existent. Stay tuned to www.escflashmalta.com for the last name to come out within the next couple of days.
