Sometimes you just need a thoughtful, beautiful royalty free music track for your project, right? Like…you want everyone who sees your project to start balling like a big baby. This track is probably the going to get you the tears you are so desperately looking for. Singing about being ‘scared of heights’, the song is really about being able (or not being able) to take that next step in life. Melody Ann Jones pairs her voice with simple piano and guitar to help punctuate the heartache and worry that the song conveys.

This Royalty Free Music track is some kind of crazy Irish Quirk fest. Don’t rush to twitter to check #irishquirkfest, it’s not there. Basically, take the Dropkick Murphys and mix in a little bit o’ whistle, and you get this Dublin Jam. Washed in Whiskey and Guinness, this St. Patrick’s ready track is all you need to get this jig thing started.

Sultry, sexy, and holy moly, sass-tastic. This royalty free music track, written and performed by Rosabella Gregory recalls the fantastically well-documented female singer-songwriter movement of the mid-90’s, with Tori Amos being an obvious comparison (and likely influence). Rosabella’s music, and this specific song, also take Amos’ rawness but then morphs into moments of Fiona tenderness and Vanessa Carlton pop-sweetness. A solid drum groove holds down the piano and bass interplay, while the song’s bridge allows the band to morph into a larger, more expressive space, all the time singing, “walking in your shade”. Beautiful.

You want to see a video? Ok, fine…here’s a video:
Check it out: Silverspoon Rebel
It’s little bits of Jason Mraz, sprinkled with James Taylor’s soaring upper-range sitting on top of a solidly adult-contemporary smooth groove. Don’t let that scare you away, as his way of channeling Bob Dylan to tell an interesting story about his cross-country adventure is nothing short of captivating…and he uses a wah-wah guitar lick to simulate a lady talking. So, that happened, too.
We like this track enough that we just want to sit around and listen to it, forget about all this licensing chatter. Ok…don’t forget about it, but ya know what we’re sayin’.
Check out this video from the artist…different song, still cool:

Raucous, vicious, and downright….DOWNHOME. That’s right, if you need a royalty free music track that takes a turn for the country, this might be a match. The female vocalist brings to mind Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride (esteemed company, eh?), while the band is pure Nashville gold. You can hear the cans of Miller be cracked open as we speak at state fairs across the country, everyone ready to kick back and hear about a good country woman done wrong!
