In 1979, when Dudley and Dean Evenson first sold their tapes out of the back of their van at craft fairs, they had no idea that 40 years later their sound healing music would be listened to over a billion times on Pandora alone.
The Evensons were among the first to combine the sounds of nature with their peaceful music with the intention of bringing awareness to protecting Mother Earth. People had never heard such relaxing music and said they would have to create their own genre.
The year 2019 marks an exciting chapter in the story of their label, Soundings of the Planet. They are releasing Peace through Music 40th Anniversary Collection, curated from four decades of award-winning tracks popular in the fields of massage, yoga, meditation and relaxation.
Additionally, the Evensons have a vast collection of videos produced since 1970. They are currently in the process of archiving hundreds-of-hours of video interviews with yogis, gurus, Native American wisdom keepers, healers and new thought leaders. Their book, Quieting the Monkey Mind: How to Meditate with Music, brings together the wisdom of their life experiences. Their music can be heard on all streaming services worldwide.
