Latvia’s National Semi-Final of Supernoava is just one day away and EI team got the chance to meet up with lovely Laura Lo. and Chris Oak, one of the acts competing for a chance to fly Latvia’s flag at Eurovision Song Contest 2017 this May.
Here is our little interview with them:
Can you tell us more about yourself? (Who is Laura Lo. and Chris Oak?)
I’m a young singer songwriter from Latvia. I learned to play the guitar by myself at the age of 15, then I started to compose my own songs. This year I felt ready to participate in Latvian National selection “Supernova” for Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
I somehow met young, talented musician Chris Oak by chance and offered him to do a duo.
We know you are also the composer of your song “Little Weird”. After listening to it we can’t help feeling that there’s a nice story behind it. Would you like to share it with us? (how this song was “born”)
Yes indeed, the lyrics and music of the song is written by me and produced by great Latvian producer Kaspars Ansons who is well known in Latvia.
The song is about love. It clearly describes that wonderful feeling when you fall for someone. It’s based on the true story, my emotions and my real life experience.
What are your favorite Eurovision Songs?
We both love one of the last year’s Eurovision Song Contest song “If I Were Sorry” by Frans
What would it mean to you to represent Latvia at Eurovision Song Contest 2017?
It would mean the world to us and it would be huge ‘Wooow!’ an honor and achievement to represent our country at Eurovision Song Contest.
We would do our best to transmit the song message – if you love and you are loved nothing matters anymore. Spread the love! 🙂
How can your fans get in touch with you?
There are different ways:
And last, what would you like to transmit to our readers and fans that will read this interview on eurovisionireland.net?
It is incredible feeling knowing that my music is listened not only in our country but abroad.
Anything is possible if you truly believe in it. Dare to dream out loud!★
