About Rock Proper

Rock Proper is an online music distributor providing high quality, free album downloads with the legal consent of their creators. Please download this music, burn it, share it and stay tuned for future releases.

This collection of music is curated with enduring attention to creativity and honesty in every step of the creative process, from writing, to recording and distribution.

The ultimate goal of Rock Proper is to unite artists and listeners in the most effective and efficient ways. By embracing the technologies of today, Rock Proper is constantly exploring new channels of music distribution and revenue generation.

In the past, the ways we discovered music felt immediate and personal. Mix-tapes, fan-zines, underground radio, and uncle John’s LP collection all celebrated music well beyond the boundaries of commerce. Like these old models, Rock Proper seeks to deliver music of integrity with immediacy and care.
