Nadine Axisa, one of the most verstaile vocalists in the local music industry will not be submitting any entries to the upcoming edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, deciding to focus on the release of her debut album, one which is jazz infused and supported by the Malta Arts Fund. The last time that she had been in the final as a lead vocalist was in 2010 when she joined Clifford Galea in a duet for the song Once in a Lifetime composed by Jason Paul Cassar to the lyrics of Mario Farrugia.

Since then, she has taken a step back and participated as a backing vocalist, most notably with first runner-up Kevin Borg and his entry Needing You. Her debut album which is set for release within the month of the upcoming year is set to include a series of original songs within the jazz genre. She has decided to include her fans in every step of the proceedings which will see her record, and producer the collection of songs. Nadine is working with some of the most hard working individuals in the industry and is putting in a lot of effort to make sure that the release will be received in a positive manner.
