Finally! License Popular Music for $25 With SongFreedom!
If you shoot a lot of weddings or have a need for music for your photography business, then you know that licensing music can get costly pretty fast. Now, thanks to the heads up from Lee Morris at FStoppers.com, we found out that for $25, you can license a popular song for each project at Song Freedom.
What is Songfreedom?
Songfreedom is a digital music platform that enables artists and labels to promote and sell their music directly to fans. The company was founded in 2008 by CEO Kevin Skinner and President David Macias. Songfreedom has offices in Nashville, TN and Los Angeles, CA.
Songfreedom recently became FyrFly. They now offer a monthly membership for $24.92 per month billed annually. This includes many features, such as the Fyrfly Video Player, Unlimited Indie and Cinematic Music, Access to Mainstream Music, Curation and much more.
As Lee mentions in his article, the owner of Song Freedom, Matt Thompson, was able to strike a deal with some major record labels in order to get us this price. You can also purchase packages starting at $600/year for up to 50 song licenses/year, which breaks down to $12/song.
