David & Steve Gordon are a Billboard-charting New Age music and chillout music recording artist duo, record producers and founders of the independent label Sequoia Records. Since their first album in 1982, they have recorded more than 25 albums ranging from traditional new age music and ambient meditative soundscapes to shamanic drumming with native american flute, celtic music and world music-influenced electronica. They are among the first artists to record relaxation music blended with sounds of nature. The Gordon brothers have described their music as an expression of their interests in meditation, Eastern spirituality, and Western nature-based forms of spirituality. A 2005 survey conducted by New Age Retailer magazine ranked David & Steve Gordon as the fourth most well known new age music artist among specialty retailers. The Gordon brothers have also produced several compilations of downtempo recordings, including among others the Buddha-Lounge series, with six volumes released to date.
