Our upstairs neighbor Sean just pointed me to a relatively-new music service that I’m excited to share with our clients: Jamendo, launched in 2009, claims to be “the world’s #1 website for free and legal music downloads under Creative Commons licenses.” With over 10,000 tracks from 4,500 artists as of this post, you just might find the perfect track for your next project.
Their annual rates range from $23 for a corporate video or internet use on up to $60 for a regional spot or $180 for a national spot. As a point of comparison, the track that Phuel Marketing licensed from Tenth Avenue North for a recent spot we lensed and cut cost considerably more than $60! Of course, you’ve never heard of any of the artists at Jamendo, but if budget is a concern it certainly is worth at least a glance.
We’re becoming familiar with the library, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like some help finding the perfect track for your next project.
