** New INO Records’ pop/rock band, VOTA, released their debut album to stores nationwide on Feb. 10 and has received rave reviews from media outlets far and wide:
“VOTA takes a fresh spin on the same players' arena-filling alternative rock offerings and occasional dance-floor fillers.”
“Olesen’s syrupy vocals are perfect for this sort of music, and most of the songs are electric. Vota shows its writing chops
here, re- minding listeners of God’s love and redemptive power, making this a strong debut.”
“ Catchy, honest, and encouraging, 2009 looks to be a big year for VOTA.”
"Lyrically, VOTA exhibits a maturity and depth that belies their newcomer status. VOTA delivers a memorable debut and effectively breaks into the Christian mainstream. They expertly blur the line between cutting edge and familiar while leaving you glad you gave VOTA a chance."

**After a mission trip to Kenya in 2007, the men of VOTA left Africa with the burden to help those in need. They teamed up with Food for the Hungry, and with their digital album release last fall they sold digital download cards and gave a portion of the proceeds to efforts in Kenya, while U.S.Aid also contributed by offering a matching grant toward every dollar they gave to Food for the Hungry. Together they have given over $80,000 to date. To find out more about VOTA’s collaboration with Food for the Hungry and their efforts with Kenya, please visit: http://votaband.com/kenya.
