  1. Stephen,

    I like your background music very much. It’s the best I’ve found and suits my purposes extremely well. I produce videos for associates with small businesses, community events, charity functions etc. who do not have funds for big budget productions, but still require local promotion. I do charge for this service, but only enough to cover my costs as this is a retirement project, rather than a commercial endeavour. I’m 65 years of age.

    I would consider it a privilege to use some of your music as background? I would naturally give you credit for the composition. Please let me know if this is possible.

    Also, please advise me as new music is created.

    That is possible for your work for charities and other non-profit organisations or private individuals (and you would have to inform the client that the music is not included in the production charge). The problem is that almost all the songs (except #10) make use of pre-recorded loops which come with their own licensing restrictions that preclude commercial use, so the songs could not be used by profit-making companies.
