Peace Through Music

Gift of Music Keeps Giving

Music is the gift that keeps on giving all year long. A CD is a small item, but it fills your whole home with peaceful vibrations. When you purchase a full album for yourself or as a gift for friend or family member, you are directly supporting the artist who created it. We thank you deeply for supporting independent musicians.

As you may know, Dean Evenson and I (Dudley) founded Soundings of the Planet to share our peaceful music almost four decades ago. We have grown with each change of technology. We began in 1979 making cassettes. Then in the late ‘80s, we started making compact discs. Then, file sharing came in and thankfully, Apple founder, Steve Jobs, invented digital downloads so people could pay a small amount to deliver music to their computer.

Now, there are new delivery systems such as streaming services like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube, Spa Channel, etc. There, you can create your own Dean Evenson, Dudley Evenson, Tom Barabas, Scott Huckabay or Soundings Ensemble channel or station. We receive a small fee each time you listen so we do benefit somewhat. But the best way to support the musician is by purchasing an actual CD of the music.

In our case, we spend a lot of time putting together a flow of the music, so there is a much greater benefit to owning a whole album versus just listening to one or two songs in random order. Our music is different from Top 40 songs because people use our music for healing and relaxation. We want you to stay in that mood and have no big surprises in the midst of your listening experience.

We are extremely grateful to you for supporting our mission of Peace Through Music.  May your holidays be filled with joy and peace. Remember, when you comment on our blog at soundings.com we will send you a free mp3 track of our music in appreciation. Seasons blessings to you and yours! Take advantage of holiday special.

Peace On Earth. Peace Through Music!

Peace Through Music blessings from the Soundings of the Planet team
(l to r Brett Steelhammer, Dean Evenson, Dudley Evenson, Alycia Willson, Phil Heaven)

We at Soundings of the Planet send you the blessings of Peace Through Music this season and every day. We firmly believe peace is possible in our daily lives in spite of what mainstream news wants us to believe. We live by the principle – ‘What you focus on expands’ – and we choose to focus on the goodness inherent in every person, the bounty and abundance of the Earth, and the knowledge that peace is a goal worth striving for.

We realize it’s been quite a year and we aren’t living in a cave without awareness of the tragedies that exist in our world. We do know that each one of us has the opportunity to make a positive difference in our family, our community and our world and so we move forward with hope and gratitude for the gifts we do have. We all have our ups and downs but we deal with what comes, keeping a positive attitude and doing what needs to be done.  Peace Through Music has been our mission since we founded Soundings of the Planet over 35 years ago and it continues to this day. We hope that our offerings are a benefit to you and your family or if you are a massage therapist or healing arts professional – to you and your clients. Or if you are a teacher – to you and your students. Or if you are a parent – to you and your kids. You get the gist! Continue reading Peace On Earth. Peace Through Music!
