We were fortunate to sit down with David, Jean, and Sean from the Busker last week to talk about their pathway to Eurovision and more ahead of their pre-party tour and I must say, the conversation was electric.
The guys revealed that one of the biggest struggles they’ve experienced since their win at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest has been that so many people are involved in the process. As a band, they’ve been so hands on with everything from song writing, promotion, performance, and more – and now they have to learn how to delegate.
There was also some conversation around their Eurovision staging, and while they wouldn’t reveal their actual plans they did say “what was received well we plan to put in our Liverpool staging.” Eurovision fans can take that as they wish. David also discussed his time on X Factor Malta and revealed how difficult it is to break out in the Maltese music scene due to the lack of exposure and local support. They also revealed the Eurovision 2023 artists they’d love to collaborate with if they had a chance, but they are also very open to any and all options!
Who are the Busker?
The Busker are an indie pop band from Malta that was formed in 2012, but the only original member who remains is percussionist Jean Paul Borg. Saxophone player Sean Meachen would join in 2014, and after founder and vocalist Dario Genovese left the band in 2021 David Meilak was added. The group has released a number of singles and two studio albums, and have experimented with their sound throughout the years.
The Busker will be representing Malta during the first semi-final of Eurovision 2023, performing second in the semi-final.
