Do you want to listen to my music?

Go right ahead:  They’re all free! Really, feel free to download all of my songs and I guarantee I won’t sue you.

The only thing I ask is:

If you enjoy it, please share it with your friends. Post a link to your Facebook profile, email a song to your friends, Tweet it, etc.  I appreciate any or all of the above!

If you want to actually buy any of my music or videos, that’s cool too. All of the money I make will go back into making more music. I’m selling them on a name-your-own-price basis from my online store.

If you like my music or even if you hate them, I would love to hear from you. Drop me a line. And if you feel like helping out, you’d be my hero.

Thanks for listening.

Want to use and abuse my tunes?

What’s the catch? Just one: you need to provide attribution. Somewhere, visible to anyone who will see your work, mention my name and the song title in the credits, along with a link to my website URL. An example:

Some guidelines for specific uses:

  • For YouTube videos, please list the attribution in the info box below the video.
  • For in-store or on-hold music, you’ll need a license unless you clearly announce the attribution at the end of each song used.
  • For website background music, the attribution should be by the play/pause/etc controls, or somewhere else which makes sense in your design.
  • For video game music, it can either be in the starting credits or the game itself as the music plays. The key is that it must show every session where the music is used (ie, not in the closing credits).
  • For recorded cover songs, remixes or other derivative works:
    • Make sure the attribution is listed anywhere the song is used. I don’t require ShareAlike, but you’ll want to make sure anyone who uses your work knows that my attribution is required for any derivatives of your work.
    • You may not list the song for sale through iTunes/Amazon MP3/etc, as their services are incompatible with the CC Attribution license.
    • You may not submit the song to any YouTube Content ID matching services.
  • For concerts or other live performances, you can either provide attribution in the program, or just by announcing it before the song.

For anything else, feel free to drop me a line and ask.  Click here to Email Me

A Note for YouTube Partners

If you’re filling out the monetization form, and it asks you to check “I can provide proof of commercial use rights”, in the drop down below it, choose the “I have an online license for some or all of my content”. In the description box, enter “Creative Commons Attribution music by Christopher J” and provide a link to the song page on my website.

Go crazy! You’re welcome to use my music, free of charge for your projects. This includes movies, ads, podcasts, YouTube videos (for partners or otherwise), karaoke, recording techno/Mariachi covers, anything. There’s no problem using them for commercial purposes, and it’s all 100% podsafe. You can use them as is – instrumental or regular, or you can hack them apart to use in your songs or projects.

All songs written, performed and produced by Christopher J unless otherwise noted. These recordings ©2002-2013 Creative Commons Attribution license . 100% Royalty Free and Podsafe.
