My name is Peder B. Helland and I am the founder of Soothing Relaxation.
Below you can see a short timeline of my work and the journey we have been on together.
In 2009, I uploaded my first music video to YouTube.
In 2012, I started making music on my digital keyboard. I quickly found out that I had a passion for making music. I experimented with a lot of different music over the years, ranging from Halloween music to meditation music. This was the first video I uploaded to my channel dedicated to original compositions.
In 2014, I decided that I wanted to make a special place on YouTube dedicated to relaxing music that I made. That's how Soothing Relaxation was born. It never crossed my mind that Soothing Relaxation could grow to the size it has today. I started the channel because I loved making music and also with the hope of being able to bring something positive to the few people that I imagined would visit the channel.
Here's the first video uploaded to Soothing Relaxation.
In 2016, Soothing Relaxation reached 100,000 subscribers.
In 2017, Soothing Relaxation got its own website (the one you're visiting now).
In 2018, the channel reached 1,000,000 subscribers in March and 2,000,000 later during the year. I find it hard to fathom how many people have somehow stumbled upon my music. However, I am deeply grateful. 2018 was also the year that Soothing Relaxation became its own official company, called Soothing Relaxation AS.
It brings me so much joy that I am able to continue doing what I love. All of this would never have been possible without all of you. So thank you. Thank you so much.
I am looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish together in the future.
