Elysian Jane (N.F.) * explicit lyrics
In this song, Elysian Jane, occasionally punctuated by another extremely deep voice, expresses the pain and difficulty of life. This is reminiscent of spoken-word poetry, with the performer speaking over a piano part in the background.
Nearly York (Time Alone)
Atlernative rock song with chugging guitars, atmospheric keyboards and harmonies. Ponders how to stay grounded after losing the stabilizing force in his life: "I don't wanna know where I will float to without you to Anchor Me Down"
KNova (Warped Passages)
Driving, syncopated beats set the foundation for minor, electronic synths. Sort of sounds like the soundtrack to a nature show about Planet Earth, but leaves you feeling like this planet is doomed
Available for Artist Recording Projects Only (instr trax available) - Song in the style of Reba, Martina McBride, Faith Hill
Available for Artist Recording Projects Only (instr trax available) - Song in the style of Beth Orton, Lucinda Williams meets One Republic
Sacred Jason (Century Egg)
A bizarre and dreamy low-beat song about cough drops, cats, and life in quarantine. Appropriate to a kind of bored, lazy, meandering scene or moment.
Shawn Mathews (Blue)
Hip hop song about cutting ties with an ex after being scorned. The lyrics feature expressions of betrayal and keeping your guard up: "Don't say hi to me" and "I won't let you lie to me"
Shawn Mathews (Blue) ** instrumental version **
Epic hip hop beat featuring rubbery bass synth, glitchy melodies, and an infectious drum machine.
Shawn Mathews (Blue)
Downtrodden hip hop. Mathews laments on the feelings of depression, anxiety, stress, and the need to reset. Could be used in any scene featuring a character who is at the end of their wits.
KNova (Warped Passages)
Warbled synthesizers zig zag with melodies that shift dark and back to bright. Sounds a bit like old video game music.
Egon and the Slimers (Searching For An Exit Door) ** Instrumental Version **
Aggressive hard rock music with a Nirvana In Utero vibe. Hard hitting drums, heavy distorted guitars, and a cacophony of feedback that will take any action scene up a notch or three!
Egon and the Slimers (Searching For An Exit Door) * instr tracks available
A hard-hitting yet heavy driving beat song that shares a glimpse of the speaker's dark thoughts and rough patches in life. Great for a scene that signifies the "rock bottom" moment for the individual.
Shawn Mathews (Blue)
Stuck in a rut where every day feels the same. The stresses and anxiety of what your situation is can make you just want to Erase It.
Shawn Mathews (Blue) ** instrumental version **
Music box synths dance with a hard hip hop drum beat. Brings on a heavy feeling good for dramatic montages.
Lucas Gienow (Falling Apart)
Featuring electronic artist Cam Alexander, Falling Apart shows the struggle of aging and realizing that some dreams take longer to come true. Provides a feeling of reflection on who the person has become based on the trials and tribulations they have faced.
Sam Machin (In the Stars)
A deeply personal and reflective song that allows the listener to reminisce on days gone by and truly wonder about if "Living Happily Ever After" is truly a fairytale.
With her looping device, a guitar, and her own voice as her weapons of choice, Angela Sheik pours forth an anthem for anyone who has ever felt they were destined for something more. The instrumentation mixed with the lyrics provides a solid environment for someone who can't seem to get it right, but can be seen working hard to change the alignment of their stars.
Nearly York (Time Alone)
Ambient piano song about someone you care about who hides out in their head from all the stresses and demons in life.
Shawn Mathews (Blue)
Pushing to try harder, go farther, a little bit higher. Perfect for scenes with characters persevering and trying to better their lives.
Shawn Mathews (Blue) ** instrumental version **
Instrumental hip hop song with evolving synth textures, complex rhythms, and a solid groove.
Three scenarios about persevering through hardship.
Soft, dreamy ballad about being lost and trying to find oneself. Would work well in any scene that depicts loss or heartache.
Sherri Mullen (Shadows)
This calming, gentle, medium-paced song that reflects on the times where there is a moment of calm and clarity about a difficult situation. This calm and clarity will show that people need to push through and stay the course that they are on, leading them to get it done and everything will be fine.
Egon and the Slimers (Searching For An Exit Door) * instr tracks available
Hard rock with a slow build and electronic production. This song expresses the defeated feeling of having to constantly roll with the punches.
Egon and the Slimers (Searching For An Exit Door) ** Instrumental Version **
Moody, sad music with a slow burn. Features many synthesizers and gated reverb on the drums giving it a slightly electronic and 80s feel.
Lucas Gienow (Lost In The City - Single)
Featuring electronic artist Cam Alexander, Lost in the City is an upbeat yet reflective pop-electronic song about feeling lost, whether the feeling comes from romance, moving to a new place, or from life in general. With Zedd-esque builds and instrumental drops and a catchy chorus, this song is a great fit for all kinds of visual projects.
Clovadine (Clovadine)
Calming and hopeful with tones of aspiration to successful future endeavors.
Cristabelle Braden (Hope Survives) * instr tracks available
Piano and vocals start this song about perseverance though hardship. Drums, guitars, harmonies, and keyboards sift in and out to embellish the powerful lyrics about never giving up.
Elysian Jane (N.F. Single)
Framed like a voicemail message, this slow song is a remorseful, yearning message left for an ex-lover. Good for use in a sad break-up scene, montage, etc.
Elysian Jane (N.F.)
A moody and atmospheric description of meeting someone new and feeling the potential for something new. Investigates the urges, seductions, and especially the doubts of a new relationship.
Elysian Jane (N.F.)
Electronica-inspired dark pop with female lead. Features a steady "four on the floor" pulse with simple harmonic progressions, sweeping synth leads, tribal-esque auxilliary percussion patterns, and cinematic sound effects at transition points. Note: Outro after guitar solo includes a spoken word section to conclude the narrative.
Cristabelle Braden (Declaration) * instr tracks available
Electronic pop song about being resilient, persevering, and never giving up no matter what.
Starts off acoustic and simple before building up to a dramatic song about someone who feels they are past their prime or at least considered by others to be past their prime...
Egon and the Slimers (Searching For An Exit Door) ** Instrumental Version **
A mosaic of keyboards, guitars, and strings ebb and flow through this piece that has a seriousness to it, but also feels good at the same time.
Egon and the Slimers (Searching For An Exit Door) * instr tracks available
The eerie compressed keyboard serves as the perfect introduction to this story that almost sounds like a more somber version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles. Perfect for an angsty and confused character that is trying to find their way in the world or through a lucid dream.
A vulnerably sung acoustic song that suggests a resolution to relationship issues in the form of a letter. Rather than following a strict storyline, DeSantis paints a lyrical picture of tension and reflection that allows the listener to fill in the blanks with their own personal experiences.
Cristabelle Braden (Start With Hello) * instr tracks available
Song with spiritual themes about struggling through hard times, but being lucky to have someone go through it with you. "You are right there / With me in my fear"
Sherri Mullen (Shadows)
Slow, melancholy piece that can play with the emotions. There is some hope near the end, but the song still has that overwhelming sad feeling. Can be used in a scene about a break-up of a long relationship or a marriage gone wrong.
Shawn Mathews (Blue) ** instrumental version **
Video game like synths build tension around a loose drum groove. Relaxed and nostalgic with a dreamy vibe.
Clovadine (Clovadine)
A song about remembering the pain and regrets from a past love. The burden of heartbreak makes it impossible to sleep or move past painful memories.
Nearly York (Time Alone)
A song about using your favorite music to work through the demons in your head; the storm will come but it will pass eventually
Nearly York (Time Alone)
With a bit of a cabaret feel, "Stuck In These Ways" intertwines piano and organ with a rock song about being unable to change your ways for the better.
Nearly York (Time Alone)
Jazzy guitar and piano create a tense musical bed for this lyric lamenting the grounded feeling of being stuck in a rut in a humdrum existence. Worst of all "you stopped coming round to take me higher"
Maria Wilson (Epiphany Rising)
A slow and contemplative descending melody evokes a lonely and forlorn feeling. Perhaps the feeling of a loved one passing away, or the end of a treasured relationship.
Desperate, sad, and sparse. Sounds like a hero's regret at the end of his days. Broken and defeated. Would work in any scene that needs a somber swan song.
November Lounge (Therapy)
Mellow, lyric driven song about second chances and moving on.
Reflective hip hop with a soulful hook and a haunting vibe. Features introspective rapping about life while contemplating change. Perfect for any scene that needs an urban soundtrack with deep lyrics.
