The “Select Influences” feature is one of the innovative aspects of the “Advanced Search” function on While musicians and music buyers may describe music by using terms such as “orchestral”, “rock”, “energetic” and “electric guitar”, they often think of the production music that they are looking for based on the sound and feel of a popular band, such as The Rolling Stones, or a famous composer such as John Williams. This is why we built the “Select Influences” feature into the “Advanced Search” on

As an example, if you are looking for a royalty-free music track that sounds or feels like music by John Williams, click on “Select Influences” in the “Advanced Search” on, scroll down and click on “John Williams”, then click “Search”.
