Free Music Downloads

Grow Your Music Library For Free – The Legal and Ethical Way

Want to add to your music library, but not ready to commit to purchasing the full album yet.  Here is a solution that is both legal and ethical. Many artists offer free music (or Name Your Price) to download from their website. Most will provide a free song, EP, or album if you sign up to their mailing list or newsletter.   For “Name Your Price” offerings, you choose how much to give to the artist.  I have found that this is a great way to become familiar with an artist’s music before you purchase the album or go see a concert.  More often than not, the free download has led me to purchasing something else by the artist.  In addition, being on the mailing list provides its own benefits, like advance ticket information. Below is a list of musicians offering free music on their website right now (these may change so I will try to keep it current).  I have listed the artist and the available download. Clink on the artist name to go to their website.
