At 21, Davinia is already a seasoned artist, having performed in London, Milan and extensively in her native Malta. Labelled ‘the girl with the husky voice’ by Pink Magazine, Davinia has been singing for as long as she can remember; “at six years old, I knew my destiny… singing is my passion and my joy, and all I ever wanted to do” she says.
A dream was ticked at the age of 13, when Davinia found herself enrolled in London’s Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. With rigorous tuition in singing, vocal range, stage presence and technique, the hard work had well and truly begun. Tring Park, which was key in preparing big names like Julie Andrews, Jane Seymour and Sarah Brightman for their future careers, provided the solid creative environment Davinia craved.
The building blocks continued to be laid when Davinia further developed her skills in audience interaction, microphone technique, harmonies and backing vocals at Vocal Tech Music College. Here she also joined various bands as a lead singer, exposing her to many genres of music including jazz, pop, blues, rock, country and reggae.
After college Davinia based herself between London and Malta, and now juggles a demanding career between the two places. Life in London is fast-paced, and sees Davinia swiftly moving from gig to studio, to audition and back. Back in Malta, Davinia is an established name. A great introduction came through the 2011 Bay Music Awards, where she gave a high-octane performance alongside fellow artist and friend Muxu.
It was here that Davinia was also nominated for the Best Newcomer award. A string of hits ensued, namely 'You are My Home' and 'Sail Away', with ‘Bottled My Teardrops’ hitting the number one spot. Davinia cites her dramatic debut at last year’s Malta Eurovision with ‘Betrayed’, as her greatest achievement to date. The bold performance in front of thousands, landed her a well-deserved third place.
Davinia has since worked on TV projects in Malta, and in Milan working with different producers and experimenting with new sounds. As a result, one of her cover tracks now features on a compilation called “Dolce Vita” available throughout Italian record stores.
Progress on her album is also well-underway, and she has once again qualified for Malta Eurovision 2014. The song is an infectious number entitled ‘Brand New Day’, and is penned by Muxu and Elton Zarb, with vocal direction by Gillian Attard at La Voix Academy.
Following the track's digital release on iTunes and Spotify, she went back into the studio, with Carlo Gerada and Muxu lending her smooth vocals to the song 'Ouch!', which has peaked at number #2 on Malta's Top 10 with Nathan D on 89.7 Bay. Represented by Ironic PR & Artist Management, an extension of La Voix Academy, Davinia’s future is looking nothing short of bright.
