If you know us, you know we love kick ass music. I’m a promo editor and vfx artist for my day job and I can tell you it’s all about the music. Every track must deliver. Tracks are the emotional connection between the viewer and the video they are viewing.
When we started our vlog, I was licensing tracks individually from anywhere between $19 and $59 per track. At an average of four songs per vlog, each episode was costing between $75 – $200 each, just for music. Obviously this isn’t sustainable for a new vlog. So we searched high and low and discovered the amazing Epidemic Sound.
Let me clarify something, I’m a paying customer. I am not endorsed by Epidemic Sound. They have no idea who I am. I just love this service so much that I want to scream it from the mountain tops.
Back in the day when I worked in Hollywood, one of my many gigs was music supervision. I loved finding the best of the best tracks for our projects. The one thing I love about Epidemic Sound is that this is already done for you. This library has been expertly curated and you can search from video type (corporate, youtube, advertising, broadcasting) genres, moods, tempo, etc. It’s really designed to get you to the right track and get going.
Four Reasons to Immediately LOVE Epidemic Sound

Again, Epidemic has no clue who I am. I just love this site so much. Check out the difference Epidemic Sound makes. Here’s an episode of our vlog prior to using Epidemic Sound:
It’s OK. The music works but it was expensive and took a long time to sort through and find the right tracks. If you’ve ever bought stock music before, you know finding the right tracks can take hours.
Now here’s an episode of our vlog after becoming an Epidemic Sound customer:
The difference is crystal clear. Night and day. I’m an Epidemic Sound customer for life. I get to freely create without worrying about licensing or finding the right tracks. Epidemic Sound FTW.
Step up your vlogging game with the best music for the best prices. This changes everything.
