Malta: Richard Edwards Ready for a ChangeWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
Richard Edwards has become one of the most prominent male artists in Malta by virtue of his classic runner-up finish at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest back in 2011 with the song Finally which even managed to rank first with the jury and third with the tele-voters which means quite a lot for someone who had previously appeared only once as a soloist and twice as part of his family group known as The Mics. He is quickly garnering a reputation for having a stunning vocal range which was even heard during this years' edition of the same competition as he competed with the track Look At Me Now. He is known for writing the lyrics to his tracks whilst Jan Van Dijck is the man behind the music. Nevertheless, Richard has shown that he has a career outside of the world of the Eurovision Song Contest.
He has released two tracks which have been equally successful amongst his fans, the first being You're Gonna Thank Me and then the second being none other than My Mistake. Now he returns with a completely new sound one given to his debut solo track actually. The track entitled Change was his very first entry into the Malta Eurosong competition in 2010 and made it to the television stage of the competition before being eliminated completely unfortunately. Nevertheless, there had been a lot of positive acclaim and it showed because Richard returned with an even stronger track and continues to be successful to this very day. The re-working of the track has been done by DJ Toby and as always, the music video has been directed and edited by Karl Alin who was also the same individual behind the videos of Finally and My Mistake respectively.
