Album Notes
Kai Mata's 2018 released record was produced by Indonesian Rizal Abdulhadi and mixed/mastered by Racka Bintara in the heart of Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. In the tropical jungle land where creativity swarms just as much as mosquitos do, these songs came to life.

Kai Mata is an Indonesian-American Singer/Songwriter whose personal lyrics and soulful voice transport listeners into her wild journey: a twenty-year-old who has spent the past seven years exploring the Earth, and thus herself. She is best known for her emotive singing, impressive instrumental versatility, and vulnerable lyricism that paints the human existence. Time to Shine shows the development of her worldview.

The nine songs on Time to Shine explore various genres, from a more bluegrass sound to rock to the stripped guitar and vocals, all of which are rooted in an earnest storytelling in true folk fashion. The album is anchored by an acoustic guitar with layered vocal harmonies giving depth and emphasizing the songwriting. It allows the vocals to frolic both the masculine, lower range in her voice, as well as let her feminine, vulnerable upper register shine. The genuine openness is what captures the heart and makes the ears stay to listen. Time to Shine dives into the depths of courage, communicating the radiant light in life we all choose to create, and also remembering the shadows it casts. And in true Kai Mata fashion, the heartbeat guides the journey.
