See how these influencers use music to pack a punch.

Content creators need many elements to make compelling videos. One of those is the right sound, which can elevate your visuals and tap into the emotions of your viewers. We partnered with a few who take their content to another level with music—and here they give you a behind the scenes look at how they use it, and why it matters.

 
Naturally Stefanie
Fitness Vlogger | 206K followers Stefanie demonstrates workout routines for her audience, and one important thing about good form is breathing—which means not talking! How do you fill the silence? Music that fits the mood, keeps the viewer engaged, and (most importantly) won’t be taken down by YouTube for copyright violation.
Kane and Pia Muehlenbeck
Lifestyle Vloggers | 397K followers Kane and Pia travel to breathtaking locations, capturing footage that makes viewers crave experiencing those places for themselves. To evoke even more emotion from the viewer, Kane selects music that fits the scene as if it was composed just for that shot—because in the end, it’s music that sets the scene and creates the atmosphere.
Brooke Saward
Travel Vlogger | 81K Followers Brooke is very selective about the gear she uses to get the best results from what she shoots. From seemingly simple items like the right tripod, to more complex items like the right drone. That’s why when it comes to finding the right sound for her content, she selects a track from the Shutterstock library that perfectly complements the visuals she captures and the natural sounds she records.
