Having a piece of background music for your podcast helps you to communicate professionalism and give you another way of showing your brand. Music has the ability to give the feel of your brand rather than just the logo.
Here’s 20 great ideas for great music to use in your podcast openers and stings.
- Big Dipper – Conservative. Upbeat, melodic piano instrumental with electronic elements that give it a mystical and spacey sound. By Robert Wayne Johnson
- Biker Punks – In Your Face. Fast, rocking, punk, guitars with great upbeat hooks. Perfect for a sports or high energy corporate presentation. By Robert Wayne Johnson
- Explodopop – Energetic. Great drums on an alt rocking track. By Tom Curiano.
- High Velocity – Technology. Upbeat yet urgent, pulsing, electronic orchestral. Exciting for a chase scene without the dark tinge of so many electronica pieces. Maybe useful for a commercial – think Jason Bourne chasing someone whilst wearing his $100,000 watch. By Doug Sparling.
- New Dawn – A Powerful and inspiring rock track with layered guitars that create a passionate feel. Great for many different projects. By Dan Phillipson.
