ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The CD takes flight with Track 1 “How High Can You Fly” an inviting intro piece that flows and ebbs its way through to emotional fruition with its flowing rock rhythm, impressive Slide Guitar accents against hypnotic vocal vibe from Mathur. Track 2 “Making a Fool out of Me” is an upbeat follow-up that serves up driving rock rhythm against rocking guitar against a grand slam chorus. Track 3 “Mister” shifts gears a bit with its thought provoking wisdom that offers a heartfelt vocal delivery, amazing harmonies against compelling lyrical content. As the CD slowly unfolds, I can hear many different musical textures reminiscent of classic acts like John Mayer, Todd Rungren, Peter Gabriel, John Lennon, Bob Welch and Chris De Burgh with respect to some of the vocal harmonies, worldly rhythms and dynamic writing style. The music itself is an impressive blend of progressive, alternative, and classic rock. Mathur's voice goes down smooth and is full of passion, vulnerability and bold honesty. The musicianship from all the session players involved is world class. Also present besides the 4 piece standard you will notice sizzling guitar solos, impressive percussive accents, lush-layered harmonies, well placed Keyboard accents all built upon a thick as a brick rhythm foundation. The songs themselves are extremely consistent, dynamic, and melodic in nature. The songwriting is extremely creative and highly original. Each song possessing a unique personality, flair and signature groove. I especially like how the whole CD just flows across the ears song for song and note for note - each piece interconnected with the next. From heartfelt “Rise and Shine” to epic “A Matter of Time” to eloquent ”Pennies to Gold” to upbeat restless Fool” to earthy Good Friday” to slamming Granted” this CD has something for just about everyone. The CD ends with Track 16 “Wine and the Time of a Man” the prefect finale statement for a CD of this caliber. " - Cyrus Rhodes, IMD

"His debut album “A Matter of Time” is the result though far from a self-indulgent ego trip, rather a moving and elegiac artistic statement from start to finish. This is not your overly predictable Ramon Noodle Singer/Songwriter, no Mathur goes much deeper than that. In-fact Mathur could be classed as a 4 genera artist: Alternative Rock, Pop, Singer-Songwriter and even R&B. Mathur has way too much precision and clarity to live in the shadows of overly-predictable Pop Rock. Indeed this is clearly evident in songs like “How High Can You Fly”, “Good Friday and the title track which methodically ups the ante to a very respectable level of catchy musical expression and craftsmanship that transcends typical pigeonholing. The music is also commercially viable with a fresh sound and an entertaining vibe that makes a real connection with the listener. All pieces within this album hold the attention span of the listener perfectly. In a nutshell this is John Lennon meets John Mayer. " - Heather Savage, Topicalise
