Together they released the bands debut award-winning album Flower Torania, a concept album inspired by video games, fantasy and 80’s sci-fi films. Flower Torania won a host of incredible reviews and was Notes Reviews No.1 Album of 2020.

The album features a plethora of talented vocalists including Eric Gillette (Neal Morse Band) John Mitchell (Arena/Lonely Robot/Frost*) - Corvax - Hayley Griffiths, Magda & Miranda and Gabriel Agudo (Incontinuum Band /Steve Rothery Band.)
