Jaya first Indo-British singer to be signed by major label

Her debut single is already receiving much applause

4th March 2010: It will sound music to your ears especially if you are an Indian! Indo-British artiste Jaya has become the first Indo-British woman to be signed by a major label.

MOBO awards have already described her as “a star in the making”; and her debut single “DJ Do It Again” is already receiving applause.

Releasing on 8th March by “All Around The World/Universal Music”, it is proving to be the first club smash of 2010 with its dance floor-friendly disco beats and “feel good” quality, which is combination of pop, urban elements, and dance.

Jaya’s songs combine R&B, electro pop, Pop, and Hip Hop. She has been described as “charming, articulate, determined, creative, confident, larger-than-life, sexy, next Rihanna, and having charismatic and clear voice.

Daughter of a Hindu priest, said to be the catalyst for her music involvement, she is reportedly collaborating with producers Jonas Jeberg, Parker & James, and Hawkeye.

Congratulating Jaya on her unprecedented success, Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) urged Indian youngsters not to forget the rich musical heritage of India in the wave of pop and other Western music.

The elements of musical theory in India were first found in ancient Sama-veda, said Zed, chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation.

Jaya, 21, born and raised in Wembly in United Kingdom, reportedly wanted to be a mermaid or a primary school teacher. But now wants to be a worldwide brand.

Her favorites include Spice Girls, A. R. Rahman, Aaliyah, Beyoncé, Ryan Leslie, Michael Jackson, Destiny’s Child, VV Brown, Chipmunk, N Dubz, and Pixie Lott.
