Chris Haugen’s new single Water to Land is light and refreshing. As old fans will know, Haugen is a master when it comes to describing life both in the sea and at the beach. It is a place to relax and slow down or get active; it is up to you! Water to Land will be released on Friday as a part of myndstream’s Summer Song Flight.
Chris Haugen lives in San Francisco and has performed and published music with Phil Lesh, Ken Kesey, and Sean Penn. He has also published 50 commissioned songs on the YouTube Audio Library.

Hear Chris Haugen present Water to Land:
Water to Land is an easygoing and laidback track with a playful guitar and light percussion. Even though there are no sounds of nature, the listener can sense the waves, taste the salt and feel the seaside ambiance. The 1970s vibe makes Water to Land even more charming. Haugen’s guitars sound amazing; I love his unique technique and skills. He makes every note sound interesting.
Water to Land is not meant to be analyzed. It is simply about enjoying beach life and having fun. That in itself is an important message in a world plagued by stress and fear.
It is true what they say; Life takes you down many paths, but the favorite ones lead to the beach!

It offers a radical and refreshing twist on the old album/single perspective. When you get to know the release, you will see that a new way of releasing music takes shape. It is a concept where every track counts even more than before, both as a part and a whole.
