RoyaltyFreeKings.com, a music licensing website selling royalty free music for video production, has been on a mission to get independent producers using better background music within their projects.
Recent additions to the catalog of royalty free music include: two 'Ambient Acoustic' albums - featuring atmospheric guitar and piano based music, Patriotic Jazz - American patriotic songs performed by an authentic jazz quartet, Epic Space Battle - intense action suspense orchestral music, Pop Rock Christmas - well known Christmas carols set to modern pop rock arrangements, and The Blues - 10 authentic blues tracks covering a range of blues styles including New Orleans and Chicago-style.
RoyaltyFreeKings.com licenses instrumental production music, otherwise known as 'stock music' or 'library music'.
Up until now, an independent producer in need of background music had to choose between being locked into expensive subscription based plans with major production music libraries, or spending hours sifting through a massive collection of 'royalty free' music just to find a usable track.
Royalty free production music websites using a 'crowd sourcing' business model, where anyone is able to upload and sell their music, are usually plagued with mediocre music. This is largely in part because of the difficulty in vetting the thousands of tracks that get uploaded. Another common problem in the royalty free world is that libraries continue to build on collections that date from the early days of home studios - when music technology was primitive by today's standards. With few exceptions, little effort is made to weed out this old and dated sounding music, resulting in a negative buying experience for the customer, who has to waste time sorting through it all just find something usable.
RoyaltyFreeKings.com aims to be the solution to the problem of such dated, mediocre and 'cheesy' music. The music available on the website has all been hand picked to ensure a premium Hollywood-grade level of quality, while offering tracks and albums at royalty free prices. Only available to independent producers (for use within projects with a budget of less than US$250,000), the music is paid for once and then can be used again and again by the customer, for life.
RoyaltyFreeKings.com is truly an international project. To help round out the collection of music available at RoyaltyFreeKings.com, the LA based composers managing the website teamed up with more than twenty award winning and successful musicians from all over the world, including a pop rock producer in Finland, a Nashville based folk and country expert, a heavy metal specialist in Italy, a renowned acoustic guitarist in Hawaii and several well known trailer music composers.
RoyaltyFreeKings.com recently added a large expansion of their free background music download section. Available to anyone working on a project with a budget of less than US$250,000, each free track is available for immediate download. The range of styles and genres include: epic dramatic orchestral, ambient piano, jazz, comedy, rock and suspense tension. The selection of royalty free music for free covers full length tracks and music loops.
The music featured in the free section is aimed at people who need legal clearance for the music they use, but don't necessarily have the resources to pay for it. Owners of YouTube ''partner' accounts fall into this category - where using unauthorized music runs the risk of getting an account suspended, or worse: getting sued by the owners of the music.
RoyaltyFreeKings.com's growing collection not only covers the most used styles and genres of music, such as: pop rock, acoustic and romantic, suspense tension and heroic inspiring, but also a growing list of unique 'hybrid' albums. Some of these include 'Epic Patriotic' - US patriotic songs in an epic trailer music setting, 'Patriotic Punk Rock' - American patriotic songs set to edgy punk rock arrangements, 'Jazz Patriotic' - featuring live saxophone, piano, drums and bass, and the upcoming releases 'Acoustic Christmas' and 'Epic Christmas'.
