ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In everything that Sat Nishan Kaur does, the overall goal is to contribute to creating a more Peaceful and Loving world. She is motivated by a deep desire to help bring more light to this planet so that all of us can know love and peace in our lifetime. She uses the power of voice, yoga and meditation to increase her energy frequency and experience her aliveness. She is a singer/songwriter who writes songs from the soul as a way to heal, grow, and connect to the Divine.


Born, Amy Sunshine Therrien, Sat Nishan Kaur began singing and vocalizing when she was three years old. She began writing and sharing songs in 1995, performing throughout Maine and New England. She has recorded and released two folk-rock albums of her original songs (Breathing,1999) & (Fires Burning, 2005). Many of the songs on both of her first albums were written and performed with her husband, Vaikko Allen.

Holding a BA in Psychology, Sat Nishan worked in the Young Adult Abuse Prevention Program (YAAPP) for five years, traveling throughout Maine and New England with a team of violence prevention educators on a mission to promote healthy realtionships and peaceful behavior. Her songwriting began as activism, performing her first original song "Hush" (can be heard on Fires Burning) at Portland's Take Back the Night Rally, a rally to raise awareness about and call for an end to sexual violence and continued as an organizer and performer at this event for 6 years.

Sat Nishan completed a 250 hour Teacher Training course in Kundalini Yoga at Golden Bridge Yoga in Hollywood, CA, to become a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor recognized by the International Association of Kundalini Yoga Teachers. She was blessed to learn from world renowned teachers: Gurmukh, Tej, Gurushabd, and Harijiwan. As part of this Spiritual path she has received the name, Sat Nishan Kaur. In her studies of Sound Healing, Sat Nishan attended Jonathan Goldman’s 9-day Healing Sounds Intensive in Loveland, Colorado in 2004 and attended a 7-day intensive at the School of Sound Healing with Zaccharia Blackburn in 2005.


Weaving her dynamic gifts, Sat Nishan brings a richness to her work that is powerful and transformative. Her journey has led her to sacred and healing sounds and this is revealed in her new album Surrender, 2011Produced by Thomas Barquee, (producer of artist, Snatam Kaur). The depth of her work has been a result of a lifelong journey of service through creative expression and also the unique devotion of motherhood.

Review excerpt from Music & Media Focus
As a music journalist, one of the things I treasure the most is the opportunity to write about music that is uplifting to the body, mind, and spirit and that promotes positive energy, unity, and world peace. The music of Sat Nishan Kaur certainly fits that description. Yoga and spirituality are basic elements in her music and lifestyle. Her latest release, Surrender, was produced by Thomas Barquee, who also produced recordings by the popular devotional singer Snatam Kaur. In addition, he adds vocals, keyboards and bass on the recording. A number of other fine musicians, including her husband Vaikko Allen add their talents on guitar, percussion, cello, flute, vocals, and santoor (a Persian stringed instrument).

The album opens with the title track and its clear from the start that Sat Nishan is a gifted songstress. The tone and timbre of her voice is quite lovely, and is sweet as honey with a touch of spice. I was impressed with the way she was able to sustain long notes, adding just the right amount of vibrato and modulation, giving her voice an almost instrument-like quality at times. Acoustic guitar is another of her “voices.” Some of the songs, such as the second track start with a chanted mantra before evolving into lyrics sung in English. The tabla drums on this track, as well as on others, add a bit of Eastern vibe and world music flavor. While Sat Nishan’s voice is the jewel in the lotus of these compositions, there is definitely an ensemble feeling to the music. I particularly liked how her voice soared above a rich choir of background vocals towards the end of a track called “Love Is The Fire.” The last song on the CD, “Remember,” is a nice showcase for the range of Sat Nishan’s voice, which can go from a soft, almost-spoken tone, to a more powerful spirit-filled chant.

The music on Surrender has been compared to that of Deva Premal, Snatam Kaur, and Tina Malia, and I’m sure that fans of those angel-voiced vocalists will find a kindred spirit in the deeply devotional and heartfelt offerings on Sat Nishan’s latest release.

Beautiful, uplifting songs and chants
I love this album! In 2010 discovered Kundalini yoga and the incredible talent of Snatam Kaur. When I saw that Thomas Barquee was producing this CD, I knew the quality would be fantastic - and it is. It's also music that I find myself laughing to, crying to, singing and chanting with. I feel joyful and more deeply connected to myself and the Divine when I listen. I love Amy's versions of the Kundalini chants and her songs are gorgeous. When I want to shift my energy into a more positive place, I reach for this style of music and Surrender is now at the top of my list.

Can't Say Enough!
I can't say enough about this album! It crosses over genres and speaks to anyone. I listen to it over and over in the car and while I'm walking. The songs are uplifting and calming at the same time. I love it!

Music like an Angel
I listen to Sat Nishan every morning when I take my walk. If I start out worrying about anything, her music soothes me.
She has a beautiful voice and sings from her heart.
I can feel her sincerity in every mantra.
I recommend her CD to anyone who is trying to find the peace that lies inside themselves.

Love this music
Listening to Sat Nishan Kaur makes me feel rejuvenated and peaceful. Her sweetness in her voice reminds me
to be pure and loving. I shared this CD with my yoga class last week and they all commented on how they loved it.
It brought energy to the flow of class and also peace in each breathe. The music is also vibrant and joyful. It makes my heart feel full of life and love. Thank you for sharing your voice and soul. Blessed Be.
