Sunshine vibes are a plenty as LA's soulful outfit Zona reveal their very lovely debut album "Peace, Love & Understanding", an impressive collection of songs that journey through deep and soulful house through to Disco and gospel vibes.

The album includes an array of West Coast vocal talent including dancer for Madonna and Brittany Spears no less, Valerie Moise, who sings on the uplifting "I Am Beautiful"; and the sensual tones of "Time" and also teams up with Greg Brown on for adult on "Never Forget You".

Angela McGary lends her stunning voice to deliver the positive message on the hugely funky album title track "Peace, Love and Understanding", which calls out for unity and also features on the delightful sun-drenched grooves "It's Alright" and mellow "Happy".

Other highlight's include the feel-good "Love To Love You" sung by Chezere Brathwaite and two fantastic Gospel offerings from Wade Chandler on "Love Of My Life" and the high spirited "Jesus Is" sung by Chellena Back. Spring is in the air and this is the perfect feel-good soundtrack!
