Mid tempo piano & guitar based composition ala Coldplay, One Republic. Good for scenes where character is longing or wanting something they can not have. Also good for montage, flashback, flashforward...and scenes of deep thought as well as showing gentle and tender moments.
Upbeat, happy, fun tune with a reggae vibe. ...about pushing oneself to the limit in life, being stressed out, and yet taking it all in stride. "Life is a trip...are we having fun yet?". A reggae influenced rock song with a Beatles-esque chorus and harmonies. Sounds like The Beatles, The Police
A reflective piece with strong emotional flow. Conjures up visions of walking down a deserted beach, driving through the country, or sitting on a mountain as the autumn leaves fall and the sun rises or sets!
Melancholy guitar jam with shades of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Evokes the feeling of having to leave someone you care deeply for. Would be great for breakup scenes, funeral scenes, or any scenes involving a taxing moral dilemma.
Acoustic guitar/violin based piece with a Arabian desert/snake charmer feel to it. Good for driving scenes, themes involving an enchanter or enchantress, or documentaries involving our slithering little reptiles
Mid tempo starting out with gentle lonely guitar in the verses, building into big full band chorus and bridge. Would work for montages, and scenes where character is contemplating, or thinking about past or future events. Also would work for travel scenes.
Up tempo acoustic guitar based rock song ala Matchbox 20, Rob Thomas...lots of movement to this one. Good for travel scenes and montages. Would work for lab scenes or evidence collection in your favorite CSI shows. Also perfect for advertising campaigns...phones, retail, travel, shopping, and more!
25 Second Soundbed for commercials, newscasts, and other media. Works well with opening and closing credits or commercials with a regal feel. Traditional theme with big horns and percussion, mixed with minimal sitar to create just a touch of Bollywood.
Pop/Rock about that feeling of trepidation you get in the pit of your stomach when a big change is coming in your life and is utterly unavoidable. Could be something good like getting married, or something bad like a family member dying. This song is perfect for any scene depicting big changes in a character's life.
One man band? More like one man orchestra! Jon Smith plays everything from the piano and drums, to the clarinet and trumpet on this fun and robust sounding song about unintentionally offending someone and wanting their forgiveness.
Light, free flowing acoustic piece that would work well for travel, news, and scenes with gentle motion. Great underlying theme for a weather cast... "And for the weather today, there will be a high of 78 degrees ..."
An upbeat, feel good song (ala Pentatonix) with a universal theme, delivered a capella "family style" (performed by Sherri Mullen featuring her sons Shane & Brett). Anyone that has a loved one living far away will embrace this tune. "In my heart you're here with me . . . and the rest is just GEOGRAPHY!"
A very full sounding and fun instrumental with groovy bass, explorative chord progressions, syncopated drums, percussive chants, and plenty of fun synthesizers! Makes you feel like everything is okay and life is good!

A head-banging rock tune to get any party started! Great for a montage scene of someone riding a motorcycle or background music being played at a bar. The added keyboard effects are also great for a space-themed film.
The music has sort of an old school Hollywood vibe, which is very fitting because amongst the accordian, piano and trumpet, is the sad observation of a valuable and talented human being who is only appreciated for her exterior.
Mellow finger-style guitar treatment, gives the impression of someone travelling in the country. Gives off the feeling of someone going away from home for a long time. Good for open road cross country driving scenes.
Haunting bluesy vocals layered on top of a single acoustic guitar and bass, with piano highlights added in for good measure . . . this song is all about never quitting and making the best out of your current situation. "I'm down but I'm not out, yeah I can take it . . . cause life is what you make it!".
Starts with acoustic guitar and cello playing a nostalgic tune but quickly speeds up into a fun and happy jam. Then slows back down to end where it began. Perfect for scenes of reminiscing about the old days, particularly the good times involving family memories, fun and games! Can also provide the feeling of looking forward and making new memories!
Gentle acoustic guitar ballad. Dreamy, thoughtful guitar with arrangement that feels like a mix of country meets the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood". Great for relationship scenes, montages, sleep or dream scenes, scenes of deep tought, sailing on the ocean, fishing in the bay, hiking in the quiet backwoods.
Uplifting, cinematic pop rock which suggests hope and victory are close at hand! Repeating piano ostinato over a huge wash of big synths, which gives way in the chorus to a heroic melody played by two trumpets,all supported by a gritty rock guitar.
Features guitar, piano, cello and percussion building up and then cutting out. Has that calm, happy feel like you would hear in a Sims game or in various Nintendo games. Would work for scenes in Film/TV that show happy homes or small towns.
Classic rock song that would sound at home on Bowie's Man Who Sold The World album. Tells the tale of Reginald who attempts to warn his peers of a danger but fails as they just want to have fun. Ends with a magnificent woodwind coda.
An emotive acoustic guitar ornamented with dramatic keyboards creates a versatile soundbed that could soundtrack the next phase in life. Perhaps finding a new love or letting go of a lost one? A bittersweet soundbed appropriate for many types of scenes.
Piano & cello - Erie, sad, atmospheric, gentle, dreamy, suspenseful - lovely backdrop for contemplative, sad, dream scenes...or looking out at the ocean and thinking, floating on the water, walking along the beach...or gentle, graceful sports themes (gymnastics, swimming, diving, etc.)
This piece has a real Hoe Down feel to it. Perfect for scenes up in the mountains or out in the sticks. Especially good for hoe down/country gathering scenes with the band strumming hard on their guitars and folks dancing like there was no tomorrow. Would also work for chases or running from something or someone!
Upbeat alternative rock with quick fire vocals, dreamy chord progressions, and a fun in the sun lyric. Perfect for scenes of escaping into a fun, carefree and warm life. Features a tempo change and dip into reggae!
Airy, uplifting theme with a "Champagne Supernova" (Oasis) feel. Good for documentaries, emotional "crossroads of life", scenes involving travel, or commercials/cues for airline, train, cruise, or travel agencies.

Soft, lonely piano ballad that builds from a gentle ballad to a Muse, Evanescense like rock song. Song kicks in with heavy drums and distorted guitar in the bridge. Has tension and would work for anything from relationship scenes, to loss, thought, travel, discovery, and more! You can feel the sadness...
Quirky guitar and piano based pop tango that should've been written by Quentin Tarantino. "Marching" drums throughout and makes you want to dance oh so mysteriously. From "Dancing With The Stars" to sports shows...has a real tension to it, so would also be great for action, adventure, travel, exploration, and a great backdrop for animal planet type of films. This one is fun and mysterious at the same time!
Electronic piece that evolves and develops. Changes feel from a slow groove, to a 1-2-1-2 polka feel, and goes back. Pensive and pondering, then excited and determined, back to thoughtful and wondrous.
Acoustic foot stompin', guitar based Americana/New Country with an upbeat and happy feel! Layed back in the verses and then driving in the chorus! Plus a really nice guitar lead for the bridge section. Great for ad campaings for anything from retail, to fast food, to viagra! Also a great background jukebox song in a country pub or use in humorous scenes where the characters are getting into (or trying to stay out of) trouble!
