Audionautix – Jason Shaw, Free Music for Book Trailers, Videos

Audionautix free musicWhere do you get free music for book trailers and YouTube videos?

A friend suggested using to add to a YouTube video I made for another friend in the publishing business. The idea sounded fine until reading the terms of use, which meant spending $200 or facing potential prosecution and legal fees. No thanks. FreeplayMusic, despite the name, is definitely not free for most uses.

Fortunately Audionautix, a truly free music site operated by Jason Shaw, had just what I needed in track #48, Wheels. There were nearly 300 instrumental songs to choose from–plenty of them would have complemented the YouTube video nicely. Jason Shaw’s only request: You are free to use the music (even for commercial purposes) as long as you credit “” where possible. Music must be part of some other created works. No further permission is required.

You got it, music credits in the description on my friend’s YouTube video. Audionautix also has a PayPal donation button; I was happy to contribute $5.

Check them out for free music. Any other recommended sites and artists? Please post them in the comments.

    It’s always great to see that some people like what we’re doing so much that they actually take the time to spread the word! I can’t thank you enough, but hey, I’m busy creating more music for you! That should count for thanks!

    With havin so much written content do you
    ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but
    it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.
    Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen?
    I’d truly appreciate it.
