One of the greatest guitarists and singers who have ever lived, and a legend in Asia, Paul Ponnudorai passed away prematurely in the summer of 2012, leaving behind "Right On Time" as the only testimony of his musical stature.
Produced by his friend and hardcore fan Enrico Crivellaro, this fantastic album shows a virtuoso guitarist and a superb, inspired singer, who defies musical boundaries with disarming easiness. Paul proves that he is one of a handful of musicians around the world who rather than just playing music, can afford to play with music. In fact, "Right On Time" is an exceptional document of his ability and audacity in first dismantling, and then restructuring and reshaping songs, to make them sound unlike anything you have heard before.

"A man who is quite possibly the greatest musical interpreter of our time performs every weekend at Harry's—an ordinary bar in a Singaporean shopping mall. There, before a half-empty room, while soccer matches are screened and waitresses ferry beer and fries, Paul Ponnudorai sings with astounding virtuosity, accompanied only by his Spanish guitar. His voice swoops and growls with the range and soulfulness of mid-period Stevie Wonder, and his fluid, polyrhythmic style of guitar playing appears to have little precedent. But it is his choice of material, and the inventiveness with which he arranges it, that cloaks Ponnudorai in the aura of genius."
