Furry Music is a term that is often used to describe music (of any particular genre) that is either performed by self-described members of the furry fandom, or revolving around themes of a furry nature, or both. There is occasional dispute about which definition can be considered the "correct" one, however the former has mostly become the general understanding and its sentiment is shared across all of the listed current/recent furry music projects.

Since June of 2023, Spotify now has a "furry" discovery algorithm tag. (Tweet by @FurryMusicIntro)

Alternatively, Furry Music is anything that wants to call itself "furry music".

Music within the fandom[edit]

The term "furry" has historically and primarily been used to describe a readily-recognizable genre of visual art, often to the point of being used synonymously. Due to the overabundance and accessibility of visual media, manifestations of typically furry themes in other artistic forms of media (i.e., literature and music) have figured in lesser levels of prominence and quantity.

Nevertheless, music within the furry fandom exists; In fact, in recent years it has become a lot more prominent. What started out as a smaller niche which included more or less universally known artists like NIIC, Pepper Coyote, Fox Amoore, Scratch21, GOJII and Car Seat Headrest (quite a few of which making it quite big) has become a very quickly growing community of producers, singers, labels, DJs and events.

The Furry Music space is quite an open and welcoming space, and a very creator-driven environment. The vast majority of releases are distributed under free licenses for commercial use by streamers, YouTubers or animators.

By far the most common genres among furry producers would be various forms of EDM, Dubstep, VGM, Punk and Hip-Hop.

In huge parts due to the growing availability to self-distribute through commercial services like DistroKid (owned by Spotify), or by community-owned projects like M.A.J.I.C Records, Aural Alliance or Walking Dog Music, you can find most Furry musicians nowadays all across various platforms from Bandcamp to YouTube over Spotify, Apple and Amazon Music.

There have been various attempts at creating "Furry Music Lists" and databases. Here are the currently best sources to find various artists through (as of August 3rd, 2023):

Charity within the furry music community[edit]

Charity is generally quite common among furry communities and this trend continues into its other artistic niches like music. There have been numerous releases or small labels dedicated to giving their entire revenue to charity. In this category the most notable project ran purely for charity is the Furry Music Anthology that has most recently released their 4th collection and are rumoured to release their next across more platforms.
