Free to use, with credit, in any project.

The Basics

My songs and albums are written and performed by me, Chris Zabriskie (You've Been a Wonderful Laugh Track, ASCAP).

They are available for purchase at my Bandcamp and most digital music stores, and I also share them via the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license.

If you'd like to use my songs in your own work, credit is my only requirement.

The credit can be as simple as "Music by Chris Zabriskie" or "[song title] by Chris Zabriskie," and you're welcome to place it where it makes the most sense for your project.

This includes commercial and noncommerical projects alike: feature films, advertisements, YouTube videos, podcasts, video games, apps, Kickstarters, you name it.

Please take a moment to read the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 licensing terms for more details.


The best way to show you love what I do is to share my music with your friends.

The second-best way to show you love what I do is to buy my music online.

You can pay any amount for my albums and songs at my Bandcamp.

They're also available most places digital music is sold or streamed, including iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.

I am an independent artist (no label, management, etc.), so I truly appreciate every dollar spent on my music. Thank you!

Usage Without Credit + Other Licenses

If you are unable to give credit to me in your project, as required by the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license, I'm happy to provide a written license waiving the credit for a fee per song/per project.

I do not have set fees for licensing any of my songs. Doesn't matter if you're an independent filmmaker or a Fortune 500 company. All I ask for is a combination of what you can afford and what you think is fair.

For any formal licensing, including festival and broadcast, email me directly.

High-Quality Song Downloads

If your project requires my songs in high-quality audio, WAV, FLAC, and other file formats are available at my Bandcamp.

YouTube Copyright Notifications

If you've used one of my songs in a YouTube video and have received a copyright notification or claim, it did not come from me. I don't place copyright notifications or advertisements on any videos using my music.

If you receive a copyright notification on a video that includes one of my songs, please contact me immediately and we'll get it taken care of.
