Ermal Meta

 

Ermal Meta is one of the most interesting singers and songwriters in the Italian and Albanian contemporary music scene, besides being a very talented author and also TV personality thanks to his participation in the "Amici" talent show as contest judge.

 

His music combines steady dance beats, upbeat pop melodies, and smooth swooning vocals.

Meta was born Fier- Albania 1981 and moved with his family to Bari-Italy when he was 13. He played guitar with the Italian band 'Ameba4', who released their self-titled debut album in 2006.

 

Ermal then joined "La Fame di Camilla" in 2997 as the band's lead singer and songwriter until their breakup in 2013. During his time with this band he also wrote songs for Patty Pravo, Marco Mengoni, Chiara, Annalisa, Lorenzo Fragola and many other Itlian artists.

 

He embarked on a solo career in 2013 and released his debut album 'Umano' in 2016. His 2017 follow-up 'Vietato Morire' reached number one on Billboard's Italian chart and placed third overall competition of Sanremo music festival 2017. 'Vietato Morire' won also the 'Mia Martini' Critics award in the same festival.

 

After a successful summer tour across Italy, Ermal Meta will be touring Europe in November 2017. Appearing in the Grand Social in Dublin on Friday 10th November.
