Our services also include consultation, networking and music industry courses as well as artist showcases abroad. From 2012 to 2018 MME were sponsored by only UK or German companies with ironically absolutely no funding from Malta. June 2019 sees our new revamped website to promote Maltese music still further as we seek partnerships with international music trade associations.
Malta Music Export (MME) is the main Maltese music industry body and operates in the areas of education and export to develop artists, musicians and any music connected to Malta through information and advice resources. MME was established in 2012 in Sliema, initially as a low key way of representing the interests of the local Maltese music industry.
We help our clients to establish connections and present their music. MME is the only voice representing Malta music at international showcases, fairs and exhibitions. These included for 2019, MIDEM in France, The Great Escape in the UK and the Reeperbahn Festival in Germany. For 2020 MIDEM online and various online conferences and festivals due to Covid 19.
At Malta Music Export we offer everything from Music Industry Courses to Skype, Messenger, Telephone and E-Mail advice. We also offer specialised consultation through to offers on events for all Maltese and Malta based artists of any nationality. Our opening online hours are 3pm to 5pm on Tuesdays and 1pm to 5pm on Fridays. (Subject to change). During the Covid 19 pandemic email us and we can be relatively flexible to help you on your project or give advice.

MME help Lynn Chircop with song cover in Germany
German artist releases new single
TV personality Stefanie Rhein releases summer track ‘Came Back For You’
WDR television presenter and music artist Stefanie Rhein has covered the song ‘Came Back For You’, a track that was co-written by MME’s Richard Rogers with former Eurovision star Lynn Chircop. Richard explained the story behind him writing the lyrics, ‘It’s basically a love song about going back to the person you love after a long time. Lynn added some great piano to the song in Zurrieq which we wrote as far back as April 2008 and was originally performed live by the artist Darshan in 2009, so this song has a long history’.
Dusseldorf television personality and singer Rhein said ‘I am thrilled to have recorded this track co-written by Richard and Lynn and excited to be releasing it as my new single. Thanks to the MME team for making the connection with Lynn in Malta’.
The song is from Stefanie’s new album ‘Happiness And Other Crimes’ and features the remixing skills of Tony Catania and piano from Vasyl Humnytssky.
There will be a number of mixes of the track and a video as well. Already ‘Came Back For You’ has been used on a Coronavirus Yoga video filmed in Germany in 2020.
Dr Lynn Chircop releases ‘Came back For You’ in Malta
Ex Eurovision contestant releases new single
New video to tie in with the release.
In a strange coincidence Malta’s Dr Lynn Chircop Faure has also released the Rogers/Chircop penned track ‘Came Back For You’ as a single at the end of August 2020 in Malta barely two months after Stefanie Rhein released her version in Germany. Neil McAffer, General Manager at MME was quoted as saying ‘Amazing, the song was written in 2008 and gets two releases in two months by two different artists in two different territories. It’s like waiting for a bus then two come along at once’.
Former Eurovision contestant Dr Lynn has also made a video for the single based on the Mediterranean island.
‘Came Back For You’ is the follow up to another Rogers/Chircop co-written single that Dr Lynn released in March of this year called ‘Treading On Eggshells’ that received great press in The Times and Independent and was well received before Covid 19 kicked in.
