Background Music

I love geeking out about background music, but this topic can be overwhelming at first: where to find background music, can I use it legally, where to get free background music, etc. But I will cut to the chase:

My all time favorite place for background music right now is Epidemic Sound. You get affordable, high quality music in all genres, and the best part is: when you use my link, you can get your first month free. All the songs you could ever want, free for 30 days. Click here to give it a try now (full disclosure, this link and others on this page are traced back to me, and I'll get a commission when you signup at no additional cost to you).

For free background music, I highly recommend you take a look at Incompetech.com or YouTube's audio library. Both of those places are the easiest places to find totally free background music.
