Dean Evenson’s album RELAXATION ZONE received double honors at the recent INATS trade show in Denver, Colorado. It won the COVR Visionary Award for ALBUM OF THE YEAR and BEST NEW AGE MUSIC. The COVR is Coalition of Visionary Resources, the trade organization that represents new thought stores, producers and creators of visionary books, music, videos, websites and sideline products. Soundings of the Planet is honored to have been frequently recognized by this important organization in the fields of health, wellness, earth and spirituality.
Charting a new direction, Dean Evenson actually put down his flute for this album to create his lovely keyboard compositions that are uplifting as well as comforting and supportive. The resulting ambiance is perfect for healing arts practitioners and others who have been asking him for music with a little more rhythm but still with that signature ‘Evenson’ mood. Gentle rolling rhythms, atmospheric grooves, soft percussion and a touch of didgeridoo invite you relax into the moment.
