Renee & Jeremy

Jennifer Paskow
When you hear Jennifer Paskow’s rich, honey-like vocals and her honest, uplifting, hypnotic melodies, you feel like you’ve been dipped in a warm, soothing bath.

Nina Lee
The perfect music for pregnant woman preparing for their birth journey & then as a beautiful soundtrack on their journey as mothers.

Bachan Kaur
The power in her music lies in its purity – vibrating as a living prayer, evoking deep states of healing and love.  Her latest CD is spectacular!

Katie Wise & Bhakti Explosion
Mantra-rock kirtan band with a warm sound infused with sacred sanskrit, funky grooves, and a dose of chick power and angelic harmonies.  Absolutely love Katie’s music, just makes you melt and feel warm and fuzyy!

Snatam Kaur
I’ve hears Snatam’s mesmerizing music at many births, but I first heard it in yoga classes and just had to have it.  Her music appeals to the modern ear and awakens an ancient yearning in the soul.
