Cass Anawaty is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and award-winning audio engineer. Beginning musical life as a drummer, he quickly adopted acoustic guitar as his main instrument and studied classical technique while attending college. He was intrigued by the world of steel-string alternate tunings and attended master classes with Alex DeGrassi. While living in Northern California, he began studying flamenco guitar with Mark Taylor, and once relocated to Portland, Oregon, studied jazz theory with renowned guitar instructor Don Latarski. As a child of the ’80s, he was always drawn toward the adventurous synthesizers sounds of his youth and began experimenting with sound design in a musical context. Also an adept bass player, he performs with internationally-known new age icons Majestica and 2002. He released two records with “Anawaty/Russell” with garnered critical acclaim. Cass owns and operates Sonoran Music, in Scottsdale AZ, where he provides services related to audio and audio production. His work has charted on Billboard and numerous Indie charts in a variety of genres.
Sherry Finzer believes that music can heal. Her musical journey has taken her from classical to jazz, pop, world, and flamenco, to today, where she feels her music does the best work by helping to calm, soothe and bring people to a state where they can begin to create self-healing through her meditative music. Fueled by stories shared by listeners and fans of how her music helps them deal with stress, depression, and physical ailments such as tinnitus, stroke, and cancer, she records, performs, composes, and runs Heart Dance Records – a label consisting of artists with a focus on creating music to be used to help mentally and physically heal. Sherry specializes in the low flutes - alto, bass, and contrabass, as well as Native flutes. Sherry's music can be heard on SXM Spa Channel (68), Pandora, Spotify, Music Choice Soundscapes, Galaxie Spa Channel, Calm Radio, River of Calm, Journeyscapes, international radio programming, multiple airlines, and overhead music channels.
