Hi everyone! I’m so excited (still!) to say that Sophia Patsalides, quite possibly my favourite JESC singer ever, kindly agreed to an interview for the blog! Here it is:
Lewis: Do you have any new music coming out soon – an album maybe?
Sophia: I am working on many new projects, stay tuned!
L: Are there any artists who have inspired you and your music?
S: I like to sing R&B mostly, so my musical influences are Lisa Fisher, Diana Krall, Jasmine Sullivan and many more great artists!
L: Is there a singer (Cypriot or not) who who’d love to collaborate with?
S: The best thing for me would be being the opening act of a famous artist’s tour!
L: What has been your favourite Cypriot ESC song?
S: Life Looks Better In Spring.
L: Would you consider JESC again or the ESC in a few years’ time?
S: Yes, the ESC would be an interesting and challenging follow-up!
L: Besides performing, what was the highlight of your time in Malta?
S: The rehearsals and preparations. Also, the friends I made and the time I spent with them!
L: Since you wrote ‘I pio omorfi mera’ as well as performed it, would you also consider composing as well as singing in the future?
S: Yes, I already compose and sing my own songs.
L: Did the scooter incident being so close to the final worry you?
S: We were joking around during preparations with my team! Everything was fine!
L: How do you think JESC has changed you personally and you as an artist?
S: I learned to handle competitive environments well, and it was a really amazing experience in general.
L: Anything else you’d like to say to our readers?
S: Thank you for reading this interview, and thank you for your support! Have a beautiful day!
Also, I’d like to finish by thanking Sophia for her time and generosity, she replied to my message pretty much straight away. Also, Rory, James and I are looking forward to what Sophia does next with her music!
See you all soon!
