Zona ‘Peace, Love & Understanding’ Album
70×7 Records /March 2016
‘Peace, Love & Understanding’ is the silky smooth debut album from LA based band Zona (aka Dimitri Craven and Jerry Andrew).  Together with an array of talented local West Coast vocalists and musicians they’ve created an uplifting musical trip of irresistible Disco fused grooves, jazzy sun-kissed vibes and seductive Deep and Soulful House.
The album includes an array of the band’s celebrated singles including ‘Never Forget You’; their hugely popular song of self empowerment, ‘I Am Beautiful’, ‘Time’,  beautifully sung by regular cohort Valerie Moise who is joined by Greg Brown on ‘Never Forget You’. More treats include ‘Love To Love You’ sung by Chezere Brathwaite (The Roots backing vocalist) and the album title ‘Peace, Love and Understanding’, with the message that calls out for unity, delivered by Angela McGary. There are also some Gospel vibes as Wade Chandler contributes with a stunning performance on ‘Love Of My Life’ and Chellena Back features on a vibrant Gospel high with ‘Jesus Is’.
