New Album By Ajay Mathur Produces Three Award Nominated Singles

Acclaimed solo artist Ajay Mathur’s new visionary album, A Matter of Time, nicely blends both pop and rock genres with traditional Indian instruments and an ensemble of fresh new tracks that are a tribute to his talent as a singer/songwriter and musician.

Born and raised in India, Ajay performed at some of the hottest clubs in Delhi and Mumbai during the height of the 1970's. While some of the biggest international musicians from the West, including Jimmy Page and Don Cherry, were touring the country in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment, they joined Ajay onstage for unforgettable jam sessions that lasted through the night.

In the 1980’s, love brought Ajay to Switzerland. It was there that Ajay celebrated success with his rock group, Mainstreet. Along with sold out tours across Europe, the group had an impressive four singles and two albums make it to the top 20 on the Swiss radio charts, enjoy airplay on various European radio stations and month-long club power play in Tokyo's Hard Rock Cafe.

In just three months, Ajay has reached an incredible 85,000 plays and nearly 23,000 views with NumberOneMusic.com, a music portal dedicated to the development and exposure of artists and bands. He is also topping the Rock-Pop genre and creating a solid fan base through the site.

Ajay’s newest CD release, A Matter of Time, is his first album since his days with Mainstreet. The new album is a culmination of many years of songwriting and the dedication of several masterful musicians, including Ajay's close friend and renowned blues guitarist Richard Koechli- each who has added their own unique touch to the music. A Matter of Time headlines three hot new singles: Rise and Shine, Granted, and Easy. All three songs have earned Ajay nominations in several Songwriting contests and each captures the versatility of an artist who has evolved over the years by re-forming both his life and his music. The tracks also exemplify Ajay’s creativity and style as a crossover artist who truly offers something for everyone.

Rise and Shine received semi-finalist status for Song of the Year 2012 competition
Granted received runner up for Song of the Year 2011
Communicate received finalist status for Show Me the Music 2011 songwriting contest
