Lotus was formed in Indiana in 1999, around the time of the emergence of other electro-jam bands. After starting out playing mostly funk-influenced music, Lotus decided to change their sound, and they began to incorporate different genres into their music, including improvisational jam, jazz, rock, and ambient electronica. Their love of dance-y/house music can be observed in the development of their songs.

In 2007, Lotus was signed onto SCI Fidelity Records, and the album that was released was named "the Best Live Album of 2007" by Guitar Magazine. With rising popularity, the band started touring heavily around the country, with over 100 shows per year. Similar to other live electronic acts, Lotus is known for their complex light show and large amounts of improvisation. Their energetic live shows has contributed to the band being booked at many music festivals around the country, including Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, All Good, High Sierra Music Festival, Rorthbury, Summer Camp, and at large venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
