To meet the release of Fabrizio's Bahasa (Indonesian) album (Kasmaran) and to celebrate one of Malta's best known male artists,
Douwe Reveler of Sechuk.com caught up with Fabrizio just before this years Eurovision Song Contest in Baku. Before we hear
what the Eurovision star had to say, let's remind ourselves of Fabrizio's Eurovision moments...
2001 – Another Summer Night
2006 – I Do
and so to Douwe's interview with Fabrizio
few days prior to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest taking place in
Baku, Azerbaijan we had the pleasure of speaking with Fabrizio Faniello,
the representative of Malta in the2001 and 2006 edition of the contest
about his career post Eurovision, the importance of the contest in Malta,
his participations in the Maltese national finals over the years and his
thoughts on this year’s competition.
it was amazing! Have been there 5 weeks in a row and did all TV Programs
they have there and numerous of interviews and other promotion activities
and some performances, - its great over there and people really appreciate
my music a lot!
highlights of going to
ups and downs like usual, especially after
Then starting in 2009 I was getting keen again to do some new music, was sitting down with my management, musicians, writers and other crazy people and we started again to write and record new songs.
first big single was I NO CAN DO which immediately entered the EUROVISION
ON TOP 20 Charts and has been the record breaking No. 1 record over there,
we went on going to record the new Album “NO SURRENDER” and now I am
back on track and I am very happy to have really a good bunch of great and
loyal fans and followers ….
it gave me lots of experience and showed me how professional you have to
be to “survive” in this music bizz …..
“Another Summer Night” was an outstanding moment for me, so maybe
that’s my favourite from this two, …..
I think, my last both participations have been with extremely good songs, - with “No Surrender” I came back and this song and lyrics is really reflecting my life!
well my last song “I will fight for you (Papa´s Song)” is really
about me, and it is doing quite successful by now being in some Radio
charts in Europe, right now at #2 in the Radio Contact charts in Belgium,
So I really would have loved to present these songs at Eurovision, but
happily I am in a position to release my music as well in all countries
without the need of Eurovision, so I am quite ok with it, ….. music is
my main motivation, not the success of the songs on first place ….:-)
it must always be a perfect package of the right song & right artist,
don’t need to give him advices, sure he knows what’s important, he has
a great song and I hope he will be in the finals!
honestly think, she would have been a great representative this year for
I did not had the chance to hear a lot, I am watching Eurovision of course
and most of the songs I will hear then
for the first time, so I really can not point out a favourite now
yeah , ……. Good idea ….:-) several times we got this question, so it
seems we really have to think about it once, …… let’s see, I have
never spoke to Claudia about it and she never mentioned it to me ….. but
indeed there are many who are asking this …….:-)
I am touring around a bit to promote I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU and play some
gigs in Germany, Belgium, Estonia, - definitely I need to get back to
Indonesia soon as they are organising right now a tour through the whole
country for me with between 10 to 15 concerts, ….. and of course I am
always in the studio to work on new songs, …. So watch out and be
prepared for more …..
want to thank everybody who read until this point as it means it’s a
real fan of mine!! (Right ? …..:-)) )
I am wishing the readers all the best and just want to suggest my motto of
these days > NO SURRENDER – Never give up living your dreams !!
