Description: Dan-O is the owner of DanoSongs.com, a royalty free production music library where millions of people world-wide use his music in their YouTube videos, films, slideshows, games and podcasts.



Bio: I started the DanoSongs.com Royalty Free Music site several years ago as a place to post a few tracks I recorded as a singer/songwriter. Then one day I added some instrumentals I created for fun. Since then the requests from visitors for music for YouTube videos, games, indie films, and slideshows has been non-stop.

Now I record a new instrumental MP3 users can download and use about once a week. Since I was a Music Business major in college I knew just what to do to set up a very user friendly license. If you have questions about using the music you can read the License FAQ.
