Jam with #Jamendo. #Free #Music

There’s a site that provides creative commons music to the public to download and listen to for free. Sometimes, you can even use it for your YouTube videos and film projects depending on a particular artist’s regulations for distribution. On the website, the artists will put something that lists how they want their music to be used; like this:

You can copy, distribute, advertise and play this track as long as you:

  • Give credit to the artist
  • Don’t alter, transform or build upon this album
  • Don’t use this album for commercial purposes

It’s a great tool for singers and stand-up comedians to use to share their music.

For example, one of my favorite artists is ProleteR.  He’s an artist based in France who fuses jazz, hip-hop, instrumentals, and electroswing that’s energetic and super fun to listen to. You can download both his LP, Curses From Past Times, and his EP, Feeding the Lions, for free. Jamendo is  not only a wonderful resource for performers, it’s great for audiences to discover new and interesting music from all over the world.
