EUROVISION 2023 | ANDREW LAMBROU – CYPRUS : “I want people to relate to my song and my personality and let the rest follow naturally. “

At age 5, Andrew Lambrou won first place in an eisteddfod held by the school, singing “Do-Re-Mi” from The Sound of Music. The same year, his mother enrolled him in music school, realising he had a musical inclination Lambrou first gained attention in 2013 after uploading a cover of Evanescence’s “My Immortal” to YouTube. A 15-second cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” uploaded onto Instagram was shared by a music page in Spain and earned Lambrou over 2,000 followers overnight.

In 2015 Lambrou took part in the seventh season of The X Factor Australia. After years of posting his viral covers, Lambrou transitioned to writing music of his own building up his ever-growing fan base. He was noticed by Sony ATV and was signed by Maree Hamblion in 2017. This allowed Andrew to develop his own musical ability and collaborate with other artists. In early 2021, Lambrou signed with Sydney-based label City Pop Records and released his debut single “Throne”, a dark and compelling debut that sees the young singer-songwriter signalling his arrival as an up-and-coming pop heavyweight.” In February 2022, Lambrou competed in Eurovision – Australia Decides with the song “Electrify”. He earned 51 points and finished in 7th place.

On 17 October 2022, Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyBC) announced that Lambrou would represent Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. In the same month, Lambrou signed with Panik Records, the leading label in both Greece and Cyprus, with whom the CyBC maintains an agreement for the Eurovision Song Contest entry and for future releases.

On 2 March 2023, Lambrou released his Eurovision entry, “Break a Broken Heart“.

Today, Andrew Lambrou took a journey to Daily Magazine where he gave us an exclusive interview regarding the entire experience of Eurovision Song Contest. ENJOY!

 

 

Hello, Andrew! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to meet you today! How are you feeling as the representative of Cyprus in ESC 2023?

Thanks for having me! It really is an honour to be representing Cyprus. I’m so privileged that they have chosen me, and I’m ready to give it my all. 

What does the Eurovision competition really mean to you?

Eurovision has been a part of my life since I was 5 years old. It is something that has played a big part in my music career. It’s an amazing event that unites the world, and I’m so glad to be a part of it.

What defines you as an artist? And how can you describe yourself in 3 Eurovision songs?

I think every person is unique in their own way, and being an artist that is creatively portrayed to the public. 3 Eurovision songs that describe me are ‘Break a broken heart’ 😉 Molitva and Zitti E Buoni

What are your best daily motivations as an artist in ESC?

Being a participant in this year’s contest is all the motivation I need! But my family is also a huge part of that, as well as Cyprus! 

What is the story and the message of your song and how much do you find yourself in the song?

The song is about experiencing difficulties in a relationship resulting in a broken heart, but bouncing back from that and becoming the strongest version of yourself. Unbreakable in a sense. I find myself by relating to my own personal experiences and connecting with the lyrics. 

 

What details can you give us regarding your show on the stage?

I can’t say too much but I know it’s going to be EPIC!

If you could make a duet or a revamp, what artist and song from ESC would you choose and what would you add?

For me it would be either Maneskin or Eleni Foureira. Maneskin because of their amazing abilities and success following their performance at Eurovision and Eleni for the same reasons and having that connection together with Cyprus. She made us all very proud.

Why should people vote for you in Eurovision Song Contest?

I just want people to vote for me in hopes that they love what they see and hear on that stage. I want people to relate to my song and my personality and let the rest follow naturally. 

What will be next after Eurovision?

Post Eurovision I hope to flourish even more musically. Write songs, perform and live out my dream of being an artist. 

For the end, share a message to all your European fans and to Daily Magazine readers!

To all my European fans and Daily Magazine, I want to say thank you! I hope you love my Eurovision song, and my goal is for it to connect with you. Your support inspires me everyday, kali epitihia Kypros!
