Whilst listening to Malta's Top Ten with Nathan D on 89.7 Bay a couple of years back, I remember one female vocalist in particular. Peaking at number #1 with a debut single is not easy, but this was Davinia, an individual who works hard and never takes no for an answer. Acquiring the attention of songwriters Elton Zarb and Matthew Mercieca, a fruitful collaboration ensued leading to the release of "Feel Good Song" and "Sail Away", successful radio singles.

It was towards the end of 2012 that Davinia tried her luck and sent in a submission to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. "Betrayed" had a Bond vibe surrounding it and the professional panel of judges definitely made the right call by putting it through, eventually allocating it in third place. A debut which led to a top three finish in a year where the festival was seemingly all about Kevin Borg. Davinia has not shied away from the local music scene in the past year, going onto release three singles; "You are my Home", "Brand New Day" and most recently "Ouch!", the latter being a collaboration with Matthew Mercieca and Carlo Gerada.

Today, is proud to present Davinia as the new monthly guest blogger ready to share with you all her top five songs of the month whilst including some tidbits, events which we will follow. This come to fruition after the 1 year agreement with Ira Losco came to a formal end earlier this year. We would like to thank the outgoing blogger for her services as we continue to support her music endeavours. On behalf of Ironic PR & Artist Management, Matthew Mercieca is proud to present Davinia to the editorial team and hope that her attitude towards life, a bubbly one will be shown through her writing. Stay tuned to even on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.

Davinia, second runner-up at this years' edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the track Betrayed composed by Elton Zarb and penned by Matt Mercieca was a special guest on the television programme; TVPM hosted by Corazon and Peter Carbonaro yesterday afternoon. Apart from performing three cover versions with pianist Paul Giordimaina, Davinia also gave a short bi-lingual interview to Corazon, the hostess of the programme. In this interview, she spoke about the positive effects of her third place result at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. She added that she would love to participate once more and therefore, is proud to reveal that Davinia might very well be the first finalist in next years' edition.

Davinia is currently promoting her latest track entitled You Are My Home which is written by the same aforementioned songwriting duo. The official video accompanying the track was exclusively revealed on earlier this week. The track is currently being played on all of the local radio stations whilst also getting broadcasted abroad in countries such as The Netherlands amongst others. It is yet unknown what the selection format will entail noting that Anton Attard, Head of Delegation possibly wanted to re-invent the way the song and artist are chosen. Nevertheless, participation was confirmed just days after the eighth place result achieved in Malmo, Sweden. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news about the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2014.
