Jessika, winner of the TVM Award and the Tele-Voting portion of the 2014 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with 'Hypnotica' composed by Philip Vella to the lyrics of Gerard James Borg, has kept herself busy with a string of unplugged performances around the country. The latest, at Hugo’s Terrace, featured an original song and two cover versions, with the support of Lulu Agius, whose most recent release was ‘Letter 25’ alongside Lyndsay.

The original, 'Hypnotica' is her recent success story to which an official music video has also been recorded and released in recent weeks. The covers were 'Roar', originally by Katy Perry and 'Fix You', originally by Coldplay. Jessika has never sounded better, and it seems that she will once more be trying her luck to represent Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest with the submission deadline for the 2015 edition nearing closer. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.

Published in Local Music News

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.

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! :)

As always stay tuned to my Facebook Fanpage & Twitter Account for status/picture/video/music updates and video updates. My special thanks go to Marc Calleja Bayliss and the whole editorial team at escflashmalta.com for making this possible, Gillian Attard at La Voix Academy for always supporting me every step of the way the whole team at Ironic PR & Artist Management who have been wonderful these past couple of weeks in setting up my image and last but not least, my family, who have always been there.

Malta: October's Favourite Tunes by Ira Losco

Whilst September was one of the busiest months for Ira Losco as she prepares for the autumn/winter schedule, she has been kind enough to continue her collaboration as set forth between escflashmalta.com and Jagged House. The former Eurovision Song Contest representative on behalf of Malta, is one of the most recognised female vocalists in the country. Last year, following an extended period of time off, Ira Losco returned to the local music scene with the track What I'd Give which won her several accolades. Soon after, the launch of both the album entitled The Fire and the second single, bearing the name The Person I Am featuring guest vocals by David Leguesse. The third single off the album entitled Me Luv You Long Time recently got a music video, one which has almost amassed a quarter of a million views.

This month was CRAZY!!!! I didn’t have time to breathe, why doesn’t a day have 48 hours instead!!! I also fell late with submitting my TOP5 as you may have realised! However I’m super proud of the reception of my Video Me Luv u Long Time. The video has gone over 200,000 in just two weeks!! It hit the number 1 spot after 2 weeks of its release too. Good times!!! Welll done once again to ALL involved in the production of my music video namely The Bigger Picture. Here go my top 5 this month!

Phillip Phillips - Gone Gone Gone (USA)

This guy’s name makes me think, what he went through when he was at school. It’s a right div’s name. But it also has a cool ring to it. Lol  I really like the positive energy this song has. It reminds me of a thousand other songs released this year, but just more credible and honest.  Considering he is the product of the Eleventh Edition of America’s  Pop Idol.

Lorde - Royals (New Zealand)

I don’t know why but this girl’s cool and composed style reminds me of Suzanne Vega, vocally she is in the league of ‘SIA’ and ‘ Florence and The Machine’ (in the studio please note). I love the way the beat drops in this track. The last track which had a similar vibe in my opinion was ‘Jem’s’ They. I seriously think her album is gonna be the bomb. It’s the kind of music you come home to, pour a glass of wine, get tipsy and moon people from your balcony to.

Coldplay - Atlas (UK)

I just LOVE the piano on this track. My God can Coldplay write an amazingly dark piano line and make it work in pop. I’m not a HUGE fan, however I can always find myself listening to their songs on repeat, just to wait for my favourite chord, arpeggio, vocal delivery. I haven’t watched The Hunger Games yet, to which this is the soundtrack to apparently … dunno what I’m waiting for, rain and clouds, for a dvd afternoon I guess…oh yes and being slightly less busy heheh!

Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball (USA)

I’m not a fan of Miley. I don’t dislike her, I just never liked her music because it wasn’t directed towards an audience my age. However this track is unbelievable. The video did its purpose. She wanted people to take note, they did. Hammer licking..CHECK, underwear shot…CHECK…swinging naked on a wrecking ball…CHECK ….I guess people everywhere now knows who Miley Cyrus is…even those who would’ve never cared. The song is extremely well written to be the smashing power ballad it needed to be on her new album.

Bastille - Things We Lost in The Fire (UK)

The Londoners ‘Bastille’ are my Top choice. I just love these guys. They remind me of a more posh and pop toned down version of ‘The Bravery.’ I love their effortless way of writing a great pop song.

THIS Friday I will be playing LIVE at the KSU Campus Fest. Can’t wait to see you all there!!!! We will be hitting the stage at 22:30HRS. Entrance is FREE and I will be holding Meet & Greet sessions after the performance. Looking forward to meeting all of you!!!
