Steve Robertson is the founder and CEO of EvolvingPlanet7.org/ProjectPeaceOnEarth.org (PPoE), the PeaceSongAwards.org, SupportVeteransNow.org, and co-collaborate on the globally free (all active-duty soldiers, veterans, and refugees) Third Ear app globally sound healing (gongs, sound bowls, guided meditations, and inspirational music). Robertson’s early interest in New Age / Transformational music was sparked during college in 1982 when he first heard Mike Oldfield’s album QE2. He would then become a DJ at his college’s radio station to give airplay to this inspiring music and those of similar artists. He subsequently became an audio file on every and all things New Age / Transformational music.
After college Steve would meet backstage with Kitaro in Dallas, TX on his first North American tour, then have dinner with Yanni after his second album “Out of Silence”, then meet Jon Anderson lead singer of the group, Yes. After reading a Newsweek article on the Self-Esteem movement he would connect with self-esteem pioneer and 30 plus year CA legislator (Silicon Valley Assemblyman / Senator) and Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee John Vasconcellos, John became a mentor, father-figure, and best friend to Steve and would later accept John’s invitation move from Dallas to Santa Clara/Sacramento and roommate so they could better work and collaborate. During his time in Sacramento, and through John’s gracious introductions, Robertson would connect with almost every one of the state’s top legislators and pioneers of the self-esteem/human potential movement. He would then go on to develop board affiliations with sacred music record label pioneers Peter Bauman of Private Music (Yanni’s label), Ann Robinson co-founder of Windham Hill Records (George Winston’s label), and Dan Selene co-founder of Higher Octave Music. He spent years researching all leading-edge types of sacred music by its spiritual intent, emotional impact, and timelines in order to catalog and scientifically/medically present and prove this particular type of music could heal and empower people.
Steve would spend 11 years writing a thesis paper on the effects of music and consciousness and then go onto develop close relationships with the early pioneers of holistic medicine (Bernie Siegel MD (Love, Medicine, and Miracles), Larry Dossey MD (Time, Space, and Medicine), Dean Ornis MD (Reversing Heart Disease), and Deepak Chopra MD in order to correlate the relationship between their conclusions on how negative emotions created diseases and how transformational music could inform and shift these emotions into a more positive state. Later, his clinical research project with Dr. Todd Forman at UCLA’s Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica would prove that his theories about the power of sacred music effect which did fact clinically, reduce pain and stress during the birthing/delivery process.
In the early stages of his career, Robertson was a Professional Motocross Racer. After college, he became a Fortune 500 Sales Engineer Executive (Industrial process control computer industry, youngest sales executive in the $4 Billion dollars Johnson Controls Company’s history), Fortune 500 Insurance Sales Executive (Health Markets Co. and ranking 2nd out of some 4,000 field agents). He became an Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, Global Peace Event, Benefit album and Concert producer.

On May 26th, 1999 in working partnership with Todd Forman, MD and UCLA Medical School, Robertson gained approval and was granted permission for a Music Therapy project that would conduct clinical and scientific research to determine if certain types of music, inspirational/new age/sacred and devotional, could reduce both pain and stress during the labor and delivery process.
The findings of the study indicate that the music Robertson selected and played in the research study (inspirational/new age/sacred) during the labor and delivery process significantly reduced the pain and stress for over 70% of expected mothers. The music was also found to significantly impacted how 80% of delivering mothers experienced the quality of their hospital stay which included: their interactions with doctors, nurses, staff, family members and friends during the labor and delivery process. This data differed substantially from the control group which came from patients who either watched television, listened to their own music, or chose no interactive media during their delivery experience.

2014 Studio Head of Transformation Film/TV Content Facility, Castaic Lake, CA:
Filmmakers Sanctuary Studio in Castaic — replete with more than 70,000 square feet of studio space — officially opened in February, said its studio head and General Manager, Steve Robertson.
The studio includes six sound stages, two screening rooms, editing bays, full-production and post-production offices, and an 80-acre back lot for outdoor filming. While it’s a full-service studio available for traditional media projects just 30 miles north of Los Angeles, the studio also hopes to become a center for the creation of projects that are inspiring and uplifting. Anyone can make horror movies, for instance, but the Filmmakers Studio wants to be a catalyst for storytelling and movies that inspire people, Robertson said. The studio wants films and projects with heart.
“We want to inspire, uplift and empower people toward (achieving) the greater good and greater peace on earth,” Robertson said. “When you touch someone’s heart and give them goosebumps, you inspire them.” The family-friendly consumer market is some 50 million people large, Robertson said referring to LifeStyles of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS). It’s an educated demographic with highly disposable income and a $355 billion market in the United States alone. The studio also welcomes high-tech and other companies to become involved in the entertainment community for a wide variety of projects ranging from feature films, TV series, music videos, commercials, mobile media series, webisodes and more — anyone interested in becoming involved in socially conscious and family-friendly projects.
The vision, Robertson said, is for the studio to become a total production hub from A to Z for anyone with great talent and great ideas to bring their content to Filmmakers Sanctuary Studio. It seeks people with artistry and talent to uplift people in the process of developing and making their projects. In essence, the studio campus would also become a community. “We’ll help them fund it, produce and distribute it,” he said. The long-running success of The Oprah Winfrey Show on network television proves, Robertson believes, that people want socially responsible entertainment. Syndicated from 1986 to 2011, Oprah’s rising success came after she switched the format from a tabloid talk show to cover broader topics that helped her audience learn and grow.
And, there’s money as well that can be made from producing positive content, he said, pointing out the success of the movie “The Blind Side” starring Sandra Bullock as real-life Leigh Ann Touhy who adopted Michael Oher, taking him from an impoverished life into one of the most coveted sports jobs as an offensive lineman for the National Football League. The film grossed more than $300 million. The intent of Filmmakers Sanctuary Studio is to promote content that is “transformational” for society. While others see how far they push the boundaries of subject matter, this studio is flipping the Hollywood model of fast-cash upside down, he said. “We want to inspire people to be more kind and present in the moment,” Robertson said. “It’s a short distance to our own heart, but a very long journey to get there.”
(2014) Shanti Samsara Environmental Consciousness Album for UN Climate Change Conference
Executive Producer In October of 2014, Robertson became an Executive Producer and the Artistic Mentor on the Shanti Samsara Environmental Consciousness benefit album.

Prime Minister Modi presented this album during his November 2014 UN Climate Change Conference Keynote Speech in Paris to every Presidential attendee at the event. The 150-page pictorial coffee table book and 2 CD album set involved over 500 musicians and 40 countries. He also Executive Produced one of the albums 6 accompanying music videos: https://youtu.be/-EiYdvVo1So and
(November 2014 – 2016) Creator/Executive Producer, International 2 Unite All Middle East Peace Benefit Album
Robertson created and Executive Produced the 2 Unite All benefit album to bring surgical teams, medical supplies, and PTSD Therapies into GAZA and the Middle East Region to support greater peace. The album features numerous world-famed Grammy-winning musicians …30 major musicians including Peter Gabriel, Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), Philip Lawrence (Burno Mars), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Thomas Bergersen (2 Billion YouTube video hits), Gary Nicholson (Grammy Winner and TX Hall of Fame) and many more. The 2UnniteAll album is endorsed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Professor Noam Chomsky, Oliver Stone, Vera Baboun (former Mayor of Bethlehem) and many more.
Rick Allen and Lauren Monroe
Peter Gabriel’s quote for the 2 Unite All album:
“Although I am sure both the Palestinian and Israeli people would benefit enormously from a just and fair two-state agreement based around the ’67 borders, we have watched the Palestinians subjected to more and more suffering for far too long, especially in Gaza.
Meanwhile, their long-held land is repeatedly stolen by force for illegal settlements. I am not and have never been anti-Israeli or anti-Semitic; I am anti-Israeli government policy, anti-injustice, anti-oppression, and anti-occupation.
There is clearly a growing movement around the world willing to speak out, including my own country’s Parliament. I am happy to be one of these voices now asking the Israeli government, ‘Where is that two-state solution you have so long said you wanted?’ and more simply, saying, ‘Enough.’”
Rick Allen and Lauren Monroe
Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) quote for the 2 Unite All album:
“The story of the little girl Shymaa in Gaza who lost her entire family sparked the idea for the 2 Unite All benefit album for Gaza, Palestine, and Middle East Peace. It is a story that is far too familiar. In Gaza 1.6 million people, adults and children alike live in what is essentially an open-air prison. They have no control over their borders, airspace or coastal waters. They live under the constant threat of attack from their heavily armed and hostile neighbor Israel. There is a movement in the Global Civil Society to protest their intolerable situation, a movement which I wholeheartedly support. I have given my song “Each Small Candle” in support of the important Project Peace On Earth album in the hope that, along with all the other songs donated by concerned artists, it will help to shed light on the plight of the Palestinian people, and encourage progress towards equal rights, justice and freedom for all the peoples of this Middle Eastern region regardless of ethnicity or religion.”
Rick Allen and Lauren Monroe
Philip Lawrence (Bruno Mars) quote for the 2 Unite All album and his inspiration for writing an original song for it:
“Throughout my life, I’ve been blessed in so many ways but most humbly through the gift of my children. I live to protect, teach and love them unconditionally so they can then share that life experience wherever they go. Knowing there are children and families in the world who have experienced lives of pain, trauma, violence, injustice, and feelings that they’ve been forgotten simply breaks my heart and should never be tolerated.”
He continues: “…I wanted to be part of this album to use my God-given gifts to give these children and families some peace even if only for a moment. In the end, we are all one family and those are all my children, brothers, and my sisters.”
