ESCBubble had great pleasure to chat with Salvador regarding his song and his participation in Objetivo Eurovision. We asked him more about the story behind his song, his stage plans, and we also asked him what he thinks Spain should bring to Eurovision in order to be back in the top five! Check out all of that and more in this interview right here:
Hi Salvador! Can you tell us a little bit about your career so far for the start?
Hi everyone! I’m Salvador, I have released two albums so far with Sony Music Entertainment Spain. I love music, and I really want everybody to hear my songs.
How did this Eurovision proposal happen? Did you ever think you would be competing to represent Spain in Eurovision?
I have never thought that this situation could happen. Sometimes you imagine that it would be great if you will go to Eurovision to represent your country, but that’s only in dreams… Right know, I’m in a situation where that dream can come true, and I am very happy!
How did you choose which song to enter? Or did you enter various songs for the selection?
I had several songs ready, and this one was the most appropriate one for Eurovision.
Can you tell us more about your song and the team behind it?
My song is something very current, but at the same time very pure… I believe that it is 100% my style.
How are you getting ready for the national final? Did your ideas for the stage performance all come together, and how is everything going to look like?
Hahahaha not just yet 🙂 There are still some details to be finalized, but they will be at the level that deserves our representation in Eurovision.
Who do you think is going to be your biggest competition to win?
Pffff it’s difficult to say, as everyone is great in their own styles. I see all of the others as very good artists, so the preselection will be really complicated.
What would representing Spain in Eurovision mean to you?
It would be a dream come true!
Spain unfortunately wasn’t in the top 5 in Eurovision since 1995! What do you think Spain needs to send to achieve this kind of result?
I don’t know, but I would bring you a song full of optimism and much truth.
What sort of music do you listen to in your free time, when all you want is to relax?
For example ole bossa-nova, rock, pop… I listen to all kinds of music really.
What do you do when you are not singing?
Hahaha I laugh, enjoy spending time with the people I love, I also read, and I love sport too.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Simple and creative, Bohemian and restless.
Are you engaged in any other projects at the moment?
I am usually busy with my tours, and I’m always thinking of some new songs for the next projects. But right now I’m highly concentrated on our Eurovision preselection.
Do you have a message for all the readers of ESCBubble who will support you in the Spanish national final?
I want to send an affectionate greeting to all the readers of ESCBubble, and I hope that you will feel the message and the story of my song, although it is not in English. I believe that music transcends borders and languages, and I believe that we will make it possible!
