Fabrizio Faniello, the male singer-songwriter who has twice represented Malta in Europe's most favourite music competition, recently made an unexpected guest appearance on Xarabank, discussing the personal struggles faced with drug addiction. During the courageous interview, he spoke about the strength that he had to find from within, and as a result, his return to the love of music, the creation of a new song, "Walking Away".

Co-written with Noel Borg and Philip Vella, the emotional ballad has truly touched the hearts of many and will be officially launched tomorrow, during Ħadd Għalik on Television Malta. Following the performance, the song will be made available on all legal platforms like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and is in the distribution abroad by Universal Music including major promotional campaign in Germany where his production company CAP-Sounds is based.

Since his comeback in 2011, with the aforementioned "No Surrender" co-written by Johan Stentorp and Johan Bejerholm, Fabrizio has gone onto win the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza with the song "Aħfirli Jekk Trid" composed by Dominic and penned by Rita Pace.

Kurt Calleja, the male singer/songwriter who represented Malta in the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with "This Is The Night", a song he co-wrote with Johan Jamtberg and Mikael Gunneras, has been in touch with the editorial team at escflashmalta.com to deny possible submission into the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, which is officially set to take place on the 22nd November at the Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa.

"I wanna return one day to Eurovision with a bang - give it my all - at the moment I have so many projects at once that I will end up doing it with very little energy - Eurovision requires focus, determination and a positive message ... which I generally have but it is scattered on my one thousand and one different projects going on. So as much as I would love to be on that stage again very very soon - as much as I love it and miss it - 2015 is gonna be a miss for me ... good luck to all the participants - wishing them all the very very best - may the best man, woman or duo or group win."

In recent weeks, Kurt Calleja has been extremely busy promoting his latest single release "Vertigo", off his debut album "Love on Mars" for which you may see the recently launched music video. The song, produced in a pop/dance manner has also entered Malta's Top Ten with Nathan D on 89.7 Bay by peaking at number #8.

In 2013, one of the surprise packages of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest was female singer/songwriter Davinia, whose entry "Betrayed" composed by Elton Zarb to the lyrics of Matt Mercieca finished in 3rd place. True to her character, she returned with a second entry, "Brand New Day", but the result was not as expected and did not trouble the scoreboard despite touted as a potential winner.

Davinia, a guest writer on escflashmalta.com has confirmed to this portal that she does not intend to submit an entry for the 2015 edition of the Malta Euroviion Song Contest for the simple reason that she will be relocating to the United States of America, where she will be studying vocal technique and music theory.
