UK Singer songwriter Kal Key released his debut EP ‘Lifetimes’ on April 6.
The first musical offering from Kal, ‘Lifetimes’ charted in the top 10 of iTunes UK singer/songwriter chart. The artists spent years working on the trading floor, working hard to live “the life of a magazine” – with many high profile overseas trips and all that goes with it. One day while travelling to wrok on London’s Tube, he noticed how exhausted everyone looked, while at the same time plugged into their phones and tablets, desperately seeking fulfilment. Kal saw his own life reflected in this, and he realised his happiness would have to ultimately come from going deeper. He discovered his purpose to share feel-good music, with meaning, and direction.
The 5 track EP, ‘Lifetimes’, opens with ‘Hometown’, a catchy ode to the “suit dwellers”: city workers, beaten down and grey. Another line references Kal’s own life – “They promised happiness, and the life of a magazine, an empire of emptiness, just another programmed machine”. People can have everything material, but they can’t fill the internal emptiness.
Kal Key’s life is certainly looking up. He was chosen by the Prime Minister of India’s exec team to perform for the PM on his state visit to the UK, at Westminster Central Hall, London. The event was broadcast to over 100 million people around the world.
