This year we’ve been fortunate enough to receive excellent Christmas track submissions from our community of professional musicians. And what makes these royalty-free Christmas music tracks so great is the diversity of creative approaches even within one public domain Christmas song. For example, we have 17 versions of “Silent Night” .

Here’s a version, by Four Seasons Music, that uses piano as the lead instrument while drums and bass keep a light groove.

While this version, by Reel People Music, is performed completely on nylon acoustic guitar by virtuoso James Cobb:

We carry 27 versions of “Jingle Bells” -royalty free, and 17 versions of “Deck the Halls” – royalty free.

Other Goodies

We’ve also been lucky enough to receive music submissions that would do quite well in a situation where a producer can’t afford the rights to, for example, a Lady Gaga song, but a royalty free Lady Gaga music “style-a-like” would do quite well. Here are some examples:

Lady Gaga (royalty -free)…sorta:

Crystal Method (royalty-free)…sorta:

James Brown (royalty-free)….sorta:

We are so lucky to have such a great collection of music online and available for licensing in TV, film and website media. We believe that the world of production music licensing will evolve to a place where musicians living anywhere in the world who create every style imaginable will have an opportunity to easily offer their music for licensingin film, TV, and website media. Their music will be protected, respected and positioned in a way for them to receive fair compensation for their creativity while filmmakers and media producers enjoy an precedence level of musical variety in one place.

MusicRevolution is that place. So, musicians..submit your tracks, however great or small, because somewhere out there right now is a media producer wondering, “What music will we license for this project?”

Come join the Revolution!
