About Joseph McDade

As a musician (a music do-er, or "maker of music"), audio engineer, lover of too many styles of music, and follower of many channels and podcasts, I'm tired of terrible stock music, and crazy prices for custom work. As a music-school grad, I know all too well how much of a nightmare music licensing is. That class was painful.

So this is me fixing it. I make 1 high-quality song every other Friday for creators to use - no license agreement needed!  All I ask for in return is that you choose to support me here on Patreon with $5+ dollars a month and credit me — Joseph McDade — if possible, however you can in whatever you create. That's it. 

Don't want to spring for premium music without hearing it first? Here is a link to all my premium songs:

Having trouble finding the right song? Use the Featured Tags at the top left of the page to quickly access songs! I even have a list of completely free music - no patronage necessary!

Need something custom? Just email me at [email protected]!

So how exactly does this work legally?
As a $5+ patron (Roadie and Executive tier members), you are allowed to use any Patreon Premium song in any context or media form, personal or professional, while your patronage is still active. You may edit the files in any way you wish and combine them with any other songs or media files. You may not create any derivative works or songs based on them or redistribute their files.
If at any point you decide to cancel your patronage, used Patreon Premium songs may remain in whatever works you have already created. However, you may not use them in any new or additional works, unless patronage is reactivated.
