The Sounds of The California Coast
A musical journey celebrating California's Coastal Parks. This is timeless music with a west coast flavor. Musicians include Tim Heintz, Charlie Bisharat, Dan Higgans and Grant Geissman.
Music composed by Randy Petersen and Bill Mize. Produced by Orange Tree Productions.
Something magical happens where the ocean meets the shore along the scenic California coast. Experience this magic as this CD explores the most beautiful and diverse coastline in the world. Waves from the blue Pacific pound against the rocky shore, songbirds sing in the sanctuary of a towering redwood forest, a summer storm brings welcome rain to a coastal island, a spotted owl calls out in the wilderness as night beckons. From the rocky cliffs and redwood forests of the north to the sandy beaches and arid landscapes of the south, California is blessed with more than its share of nature's bounty. Recorded on location in the Redwood National and State Parks, Point Reyes National Seashore, Muir Woods National Monument and Golden Gate National Parks, Channel Islands National Park and Cabrillo National Monument, and in other areas along the California coast.
A portion of each sale is donated to Redwood Natural History Association, Southwest Parks & Monuments Association, Golden Gate National Parks Association, Point Reyes National Seashore Association, and Cabrillo National Monument Foundation.

Gorgeous Review by Grognard
This is gorgeous. I grew up on the California coast from Carmel to Point Reyes - my parents met in Carmel on VE Day. The red-winged blackbirds singing in the Garrapata track took me straight back to my youth. The Point Reyes track is spot on.
I also recommend the Northwest CD. (Posted on 9/15/16)

Relaxing but not what I expected Review by Darren Standard
If you are looking for more sounds of nature than sounds of music, I would look elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, this is relaxing but it is about 90% music. I was expecting more nature sounds. I still use it for relaxing background noise to fall asleep too. (Posted on 8/27/14)
The California Coast Review by Tucker211
Beautifully done! Not only do I love this musical interpretation of the coast but it calms my cats: they all curl up on something soft, breathe a deep sigh and drift off to sleep! If you can't live there, then listening to this CD is the next best thing you can do. (Posted on 5/16/14)
Relaxing music and sounds of the California Coast Review by Traveling Fool
Nice music and nature CD. Have been up and down the California Coast many times and this really captures it for me. Very relaxing, can easily put you to sleep. I never get tired of it. Cypress Grove is my favorite. (Posted on 8/1/13)
Great! Review by Kiwi7215
This is a fantastic CD to accompany any trip up the California Coast. It's part of a series made for the National Parks System, all of which are really well done. The music is relaxing and incorporates natural sounds from the area as well as nice, relaxing music. It's a great listen while driving -- well worth it! (Posted on 8/22/12)
relaxing Review by kathy
I love this CD. Got it when I was in Mendocino and played it while I was driving highway one. Sounded so authentic. I now have it in my waiting area in my practice so my patients can be relaxed while they wait. Love it even though heard it all day long, on repeat. (Posted on 5/29/10)
