Erseb Productions, a renowned company in the local festival circuit with well over thirty years of experience, has given rise to several talents along the years, including artists such as former Eurovision Song Contest representatives; Fabrizio Faniello (2001, 2006) and Miriam Christine (1996). With a spectacular range of promising talent, the local music scene in Malta continues to evolve, and there is a general feeling that talent is to be promoted on the international circuit.

La Voix Academy under the tutelage of  vocal director, Gillian Attard was the most successful in terms of students who acquired these tickets, managing 16 out of the 18 possible slots.

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
