Real Country is a Music On Hold album immersed in Americana and the spirit of having a good time. The tracks are straight forward and pleasing to the ear – the perfect way to put your customers in the spirit of having a good time and enjoying your business.
“Pull Over” wakes you up with the sweet pangs of the electric guitar while forcing you to tap your foot to the snare drum keeping time throughout. The tight drum pattern lends a sincerity to the track and keeps a quick tempo.
The business that rocks out to “Aiming High” certainly works hard, but plays hard as well! Your customers will enjoy the charming piano and harmonica riffs featured intermittently throughout. This track would work excellently for brand that wants to show they get the job done with confidence and personality.
“Cock Fight” starts out unassuming as the band tunes its instruments and the leader calls out the count off, but then right away gets your blood flowing. The wail of the guitar and fast pounding drums demands the listener’s attention while your Message On Hold program is playing. This track is a great fit for business who want their customers to get up and move!
“Let Go Reverend” leads in with a little piano and gives way to a lead electric guitar that reminds you of gathering with old friends. If your business involves people and getting them together,, this track helps to convey that sense of community and involvement. The electric keyboard pops up at times and lends a modern but still bluesy feel to the piece.
Finally, “Sweet Thing” is one of this collection’s most mellow tracks and perfect for a variety of types of business. Subdued and wistful, the tempo still works for keeping your customers engaged and attentive while waiting on hold.
Real Country is a collection of down-home music that will make your customers feel like they are part of your brand and family. Customers who wait on hold sometimes complain that they feel unimportant or neglected by being on hold, but Real Country has a way of bringing them right in and making them feel appreciated.
Crisp Clean Acoustic is a on hold music album befitting of its name. Ideal for a variety of professional services, the tracks featured throughout this album are warm, inviting and inspiring. Heavy on string instruments, the entire album has a light and airy feel to it.
The title track, “Crisp N Clean”, kicks it off with a modern and uncluttered sound that conveys a sense of trust and welcome, important for many businesses and professions. It allows the listener to picture a sunny weekend afternoon with a good book and cup of tea in his own living room. It has a comforting sound and pace, with a quick strumming guitar.
As its name suggests, “Ocean Way Drive” does have a bit of a “beachy” sound due to its calming and confident pace, easing into a jazzy guitar solo with acoustic strumming and strong backing chords. For clients who may be contacting you for the first time on the telephone, it’s important to be perceived as a “solution destination”–a business that can get the job done the right way, the first time and every time. Any office looking to convey knowledgeable yet approachable staff would be wise to give “Ocean Way Drive” a listen.
“Walking Free” is a theme perfect for any business that wants to simultaneously express creativity, personality, and professionalism. Its alternating pace and bouncy feel suggest an uninhibited spirit, while the tight chord progression and piano introduced into the second half of the track show class and accountability.

This album is mostly upbeat and features a variety of styles, all with exciting melodies.
“Innovative Plain” is a fun track and get your nodding your head. There is one dominant melody line that appears throughout, with different pieces progressively building around it. The instrumentals are stylistic guitars, and an expressive and driving drum beat. I like this track because it is entertaining without being obnoxious, and is pleasant to listen to. It also gives off a welcoming vibe, which is the most important thing if you’re trying to attract customers.
“Life Ambition” is an uplifting track that just has a very positive sound to it. While listening to this one, you can feel yourself being driven forward.

This track will help you appeal to new customers and maintain loyalty from existing clients while complimenting all of your on hold content.
My personal favorite on this album, “The Difference”, is…well, a bit different than the tracks we’ve heard so far. The first minute is entirely electronic, but then it really kicks in with some piano, strings and hard hitting drum beats. This track is catchy and fun to listen to.
I think the most important thing to keep in mind when choosing hold music is to pick music that your customers enjoy listening to. For many businesses, this means finding the right mix of entertainment, professionalism, enjoyment, and comfort. Big & Juice Underscores 2 can help you achieve these goals
The album Super Duper Grooves has a bit of a funny name, but it does have some good grooves that just might be what you’re looking for in your new Message On Hold Program. I like these tracks because they sound very current, and are a far cry from most “Light Jazz” type on hold music. Many of the tracks on this album are a bit unorthodox in regard to Message On Hold, but there are definitely a few that are big winners in my book. This album is great if you want to give your on hold content a modern feel.
“Transporter” is probably the marquee track of this album, as it is very accessible and is frequently chosen by our clients across the spectrum of industries. I like this track because it’s a bit dreamy and smooth. It can help you give callers a feeling of comfort and security. This track achieves such a level of comfort and relaxation, while keeping it fun and upbeat. Musically this song is electronic and ambient.
The track “Slim Boy Phat”, a play off the DJ FatBoy Slim, has a much different sound than the previous. It is much more confident, and you can almost picture yourself walking through the casino with money in your pockets. It’s a track that’s exciting and interesting and will make your callers feel confident in your abilities. This track might be a little intense for some because of its electronic sound, with pianos, drums, turn table scratches, and brass, but I like it.
My personal favorite on this album is “Into The Blue.” This track is also an electronic song, but more so in the vein of “Transporter”: ambient but upbeat. I enjoy this track because of the haunting piano melody that airs out above the uptempo drum beat, and the “drop in” intro that just sounds great when timed with the beginning of your Message On Hold content. This song is classy and cool, a great pick for any business wanting to maintain those qualities.
Super Duper Grooves is an ideal choice if you want to use exciting interesting music on hold while maintaining business professionalism. Check out these tracks:
Acoustic Rock Themes is an upbeat contemporary album with fun, catchy melodies, obviously built fundamentally around Acoustic Guitar. This album features tracks ranging from power ballads to light rock tunes. It’s a great album for any company looking for a track that’s exciting and edgy while remaining sentimental and lighthearted. Unlike many of the other albums in our repertoire, these are not just good songs for accompaniment, but quality stand-alone tracks.
“Deliver Me” starts with a driving bass and drum line, and slowly builds with guitar and strings. Throughout the course of the track, the song gains substance and continues to climb until the end where it finally slows down and resolves with a final strum of the guitar. I like this song for a sales-based industry because it has enough of an edge for a sales pitch, but also has a sentimental side that can help show dedication to excellent customer service and understanding.
“Lovely Liz” is an extremely catchy track, with great chemistry between the drums and acoustic guitar lines. This song is upbeat and pleasant to listen to. As is the trend with the entire album, this particular track builds, while adding strings towards the middle, and climaxes before coming to the final note. This track is very accessible in terms of its style and has that glossy feel, which is a great accompaniment when marketing new products and services to your callers on-hold.
“Ride Easy” has a bluesy feel to it, which makes it fun and casual, but still remains elegant. Starting with guitar from the very beginning, this track is perfect for sales, service, and more.
This is a fun album, on which all the tracks feature elegant melodies. I enjoy listening to these tracks and often choose them for application in Message On Hold programs. These are excellent choices for your on-hold material because they are upbeat but not overly aggressive, allowing your content to be accentuated but not drowned-out.
Feelings of levity and fun can keep callers on hold interested in your content. The Music On Hold album Lifestyles has a positive sound, featuring tracks that reflect a very hopeful, optimistic sentiment. This is the perfect album for anyone looking to entertain and reassure callers on hold.
“Telethon” is one of my favorites off of this album. It is upbeat and light, with a fun melody. Quick guitar lines drive this track, with some piano and synth pads to fill it out. The result is an overall enjoyable track that would lend itself well to descriptive content. If you’re looking to add levity while giving a comfortable and casual feel to your Message On Hold content, this song is ideal.
“Smooth Character,” is a classic light jazz track. While some might call light jazz elevator music, I think it is a great background in an on hold marketing program. The tempo of the track is upbeat, and the driving rhythms keep it interesting. As one might expect, jazzy guitars are the feature of this piece, with a tight drum kit, and some keyboard solos thrown into the mix. Adding “Smooth Character” to your program gives it a very confident feel and relatable feel and trustworthy feel. It’s both traditional and unexpected.
My number one pick off this album is for sure, “American Theme.” This song has a very catchy melody which gives it a positive feeling. This track has professional elegance but still remains fun. The guitar leads and airy synth background, along with strumming acoustic rhythms, allow this track to whisk you away and leave you feeling extremely optimistic. “American Theme” leaves your listener with overall good feelings, which is ideal for an on hold program.
This album is full of fun tracks that are interesting all the way through—but they are not too extravagant as to take away from your content. If you’re looking to combine excitement, trustworthiness, and professionalism, Lifestyles has the perfect variety of themes to highlight your Message On Hold Script.
Homes and Gardens is a low-key, warm-sounding album that can be effective for a variety of companies. The tracks add comfort and positive sentiment to content within the context of a Message-On-Hold program, and are all great complimentary choices.
The track “Rustic Charm” features cascading acoustic guitars with rhythmic piano, and a driving drum beat that give a sense of purpose. This is an appropriate tune for a company looking to represent professionalism with unique “charm.” Many tracks on this album bring warmth to content, including this one. Warm music helps convey a sense of trust and reliability, perfect for businesses who want to put callers at ease and assure them that they will be fully taken care of.
I enjoy “Cajun Flavor” because it brings an element of fun to the table. Similar to “Rustic Charm”, it has a warm sound, but it also has a little more of a party feel to it. This song is predominantly acoustic guitar, with a mixture of different types of percussion. On hold, “Cajun Flavor” will keep your callers in a good mood. It’s perfect for a Message On Hold program that needs to be entertaining while still conveying professionalism.
“Designs” has a classy feel that seems appropriate for the more formal marketing messages—but don’t worry, it’s not too stuffy. Once again, acoustic guitars lead the way with light percussion providing a light beat and direction. This track is perfect for the company looking to present themselves as a trusted partner and a vendor that will exceed expectations.
The tracks on Homes and Gardens can be applied to nearly any company wishing to produce an on hold marketing program that exudes trustworthiness. The tracks offer tremendous variety, from those with a party atmosphere, to some with formal flair, to still others that are completely down to earth. And your customers will really enjoy them—they’re among my favorite and are certainly not your ordinary “elevator music.” Overall, choose this album if you want to portray elegance through simple tunes and fun arrangements.

For certain industries, it’s important to keep callers on hold feeling relaxed and comfortable. The airy style of Electro Lounge 2 is a perfect fit for these industries. The melodies are dynamic and interesting while maintaining subtlety that allows for elegance to shine through. If your business is looking to communicate ease and class, this is the album for you.
While listening to the track “Lift”, you can almost feel yourself starting to space out and float away. It’s a somewhat upbeat track, but the repetitive synth pads throughout this song create a light-hearted, gentle, and fun atmosphere. This track enhances the features described by voice over talent. The song mixes some electronic and ambient piano leads intermittently, which give the track some shape, and help create the vibe of kicking back and taking it easy. There is a certain level of elegance in this track as well, which would be perfect for any business wishing to make their callers on hold feel relaxed while portraying an upscale image.
“Flow Buzz” follows somewhat of the same formula, but this track is driven more by an aggressive and repetitive drumbeat. Reverberated cascading flute leads give this song a distinct sound. Combine these with a foundation of mellow tones and light synthesized piano pads, and this song achieves a cool, chic aura. I would recommend this for the business that wants to portray an elite level of service for a memorable experience.
Overall this album features a variety of tracks that are complementary for the facility looking to enhance their voiceover content. These tracks would definitely bring to life the features described, and would allow the listener to wander into the desired mentality of relaxation and renewal. This album is relevant for any business that is looking to put their listeners at ease through peaceful, soothing music.

Breath in, and release. This album is sure to hit the tranquil spot in anyone’s ear. With its spacey themes and soothing synths, it is pure melodic bliss. When listening to this album I feel my inner chi yearning for a yoga mat and a bonsai tree, trying to escape to my room with the fountain in it!
Some of the highlighted tracks you should definitely check out are Human Interest, Cloud Images, and On Target. Human Interest is an upbeat melodic piece with haunting synths that are extremely pleasing to the ear. When listening to this track I feel as if I am floating through space and taking in the wonders the universe has to offer.
Cloud Images is on our themes by industry page, and rightfully so, this track is versatile because it is upbeat, but doesn’t drive your listener to the point of forgetting that part about relaxing. It too has haunting synths and bright melodies spread throughout.
Last but not least is On Target. With a name like that how could you not like this song. It opens with guitar harmonics and piano, then leads into aggressive synths similar to Human Interest and Cloud Images. These three tracks are just a small part of a great album ripe for the picking by you the consumer.
