Local music talent Kenneth Calleja has launched his first solo EP titled ‘Living in a Song’
The Maltese artist, previously frontman of the band Fire and regular guest singer for a number of prestigious local shows such as Rockestra, The Farsons Beer Festival and Teatru Unplugged, has been working on his solo project for more than a year and has gained the support of the Malta Arts Fund as well as a number of top local and international brands.
The Project Support Grant by the Malta Arts Fund supports the development of high-quality artistic projects and focuses on the development and production of an artistic project which has innovation, quality and artistic development as a primary aim. Living in a Song is the only rock project selected by the Malta Arts Fund in this particular round of funding.
The Living in a Song EP consists of four original compositions, including the main single, a radio-friendly rock ‘n roller track, a power ballad and a rock song featuring bagpipes which were all written and composed by Kenneth, who also led the initial production of the demos, where he produced the tracks for the rhythm electric guitars, acoustic guitars, piano, bagpipes as well as the main vocals and backing vocals.
Living in a Song gave Kenneth the opportunity to collaborate with a number of local musicians as well as the internationally acclaimed guitarist Luca Colombo of Sanremo fame who accepted the invitation to feature on the EP’s single This Time as well as its music video, which was directed by Jean Pierre Gatt and Matthew Camilleri, co-founders of Media Factory Malta.
