Slovenia 2015: interview with Clemens
LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIA – The team of oikotimes.com continues to follow closely the EMA 2015 preparations, through which the country will decide its participant for Vienna’s Eurovision Song Contest. Today we chatted with Clemens, participant in the Slovenian national final this year in collaboration with www.evropesma.org
Can you please introduce you to our readers?
I am a 22 year old student, with big dreams involving music, acting and performing. CLEMENS is my musical project. First I started with recording covers of popular songs and putting them on youtube, but i realized i have the ability to write my own music. My first single Pozab na bonton (in eng. Put your clothes back on), became an instant hit on radio charts in Slovenia. I try to write quality pop songs which are easy to listen, with a good vibe, and memorable lyrics.
When did you decide to apply for EMA?
I always wanted to attend EMA and this year as a new artist in Slovenia, i applied for a position in EMA contest. I got in, which is unbelievable for me, and shows that my hard work and a great song, was the right thing to go with. I am really happy and honoured, to be a part of EMA.
Can you tell us something about your song?
My song is presenting a story in which everyone can find a bit of them selves. It’s not too complicated, the main goal was to have a good time and hopefully people will feel that.
Among other contestants, who do you think is your biggest rival?
I didn’t hear the songs of other contestants, but just being on EMA is for me, as a new artist in Slovenia, who has one hit single Pozab na bonton, amazing!
What is your favorite Slovenian Eurovision entry and some other favorite Eurovision entry?
My favourite Slovenian song must be Sestre – Samo ljubezen, witch was a really fun and catchy song. Over all i love the song from Marija Šerifovic, Molitva, it still gives me goosebumps.
In the end do you have a message for our readers?
I would like to invite the readers to watch my latest video for Pozab na bonton, add me on my FB page Clemensofficial and follow everything that is happening with EMA and i can’t wait to present to you my new single and entry for EMA 2015.
