Ashaneen (aka Piotr Janeczek) is an ambient, new age, cinematic music composer from Poland. His music is a blending of spacey atmospheres and ethereal worlds, dreamy choirs and distant voices. His mysterious and tranquil soundscapes are widely used as backgrounds in a variety of relaxation, meditation, and wellness practices, including a guided meditation by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey called Oprah & Deepak’s 21-Day Meditation Experience: Desire & Destiny. In addition his music was used in the multi-award-winning documentary and trailer Young Ice, created by filmmaker Derek Hallquist from Green River Pictures. Ashaneen has also released several trance mixes under the alias Yans, and in mid-summer will present his first title for Real Music, Waves of Life.

Slide guitarist Chris Haugen is celebrated for his innovative roots playing, intuitive feel, and warm soulful tone. The San Francisco Chronicle says “Haunting and otherworldly, like a time capsule from a lost kingdom. Perhaps Atlantis.” With over 20 years as a touring and recording artist, Chris has collaborated with influential artists including Ken Kesey, Ted Templeman, and Sean Penn. Chris is a natural musician, most at home with an instrument in hand. His music expresses a heart-felt curiosity that draws upon his love of the ocean and yoga practice, and in the fall he will release a title written specifically for use with yoga. When not playing music, you can find Chris surfing the cold, majestic waves in Northern California.
