Their debut album, Lovolution, is praised by Dave Stringer as combining “beautifully nuanced country and Americana influences, inflected with just the right amount of Eastern mysticism.” Produced by Grammy-nominee Ben Leinbach and featuring guest vocals by Jai Uttal, Lovolution has received acclaim in the US (Yoga Journal, Yoga International), UK (Kindred Spirit, Yoga Magazine) and Australia (Soul Traveller Radio, and Australian Yoga Life), and was named “best chant album of the year” by American promoter Lloyde Barde. David Newman calls leader Katie Wise "a solid force and presence for those who look to their music for peace, heart, groove, and spiritual inspiration.”
