POSITIVE, ACOUSTIC-DRIVEN SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with MALE VOCALS are needed by a huge, powerful Artist Manager who needs Songs for a chart- busting young artist who's working on a new record. They need original, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would appeal to fans of artists like Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Brett Dennen, etc. Give them positive, light-hearted Songs with a fun, bright, and youthful vibe that could be perfect for a summer hit. Your Songs can have a bit of an island inspired sound, but it's not necessary. If you go that direction, please don't submit corny, steel drum-based songs you'd hear while drinking umbrella drinks on a cruise ship. Stick with cool, contemporary songs that have HIT written all over them, with infectious melodies, inventive hooks, and a chorus that instantly attracts young, female listeners. Your overall production needs to be competitive. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

Who Needs Stripped-Down Demos?

Dear Passengers,

One of the long-standing myths about TAXI is that all the listings require fully produced demos. Doing a quick search of the last batch of listings we published on April 1st, I found more than a dozen opportunities that allowed for "stripped-down" demos.

I found them in the Adult Contemporary, Country, Pop, and Singer Songwriter categories!

Two things have happened in the last couple of years that seem to be pushing a resurgence of industry people listening to more basic, stripped-down recordings.

  1. A&R people, publishers, and producers realized they might be missing out some really great songs because people with basic demos have been afraid their recordings weren't strong enough
  2. While more and more people are becoming great at producing great demos with home studios, they've spent more time learning the gear and production side, but concentrated less and less on good old song craft! Why do you think we're seeing more producers, record labels and publishers looking for "top line" writers — meaning songwriters who have great melodies and lyrics?

I think the answer is simple: They can bring the "lyric and melody people" together with the "production people" to get the result they need — a hit record! Duh!!

If you are recording a stripped-down piano/vocal, or guitar/vocal demo, the primary instrument still needs to be recorded well, and the vocal performance needs to be really good to help "sell" the artist and label on using it! And let us not forget that the song itself has to be great, and something the label or artist needs!

So, whether you're a current member, or just thinking about joining TAXI, check-out these Listings, and simultaneously hold down the Command and "F" keys if you're on a Mac, or the Control and "F" keys if you're on a PC, and you'll see a little box pop up in the bottom of your browser that lets you search the text on the page. Type in "stripped-down," and you'll be able to tab through all the current listings that don't require full productions.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by what the music industry is looking for today!

Talk to you soon,
Michael

PLEASE NOTE!

If you are submitting by mail (ground submissions) and sending in a CD or tape, please enclose a S.A.S.E. (self-addressed stamped envelope) if you would like a response. Thank you!

Submission Policies

  • You must be a current member of TAXI to submit your material. If you're not already a member, click here to find out how to join.
  • The Submission Fee is $5.00 per song for every listing (unless otherwise noted). Listings that ask for up to three songs per listing would be $5, $10, or $15 based on whether you are submitting 1, 2, or 3 songs to that listing.
  • You must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with the proper amount of postage with each submission if you would like to receive a critique and/or have your tape/CD returned. Enclosing one SASE with a several submissions doesn't work. Multiple submissions go into a different bins or to different screeners as soon as we receive them, and are returned to you at different times.
  • We notify you by postcard if forwarded for any listing--No SASE needed for forward notification.
  • Late submissions slow everything down. We are very pleased to have significantly improved our listing turnaround time. We can't accept late submissions and stay efficient.
  • You must use your official TAXI Music Submission Form with the BarCode information at the top. Roll up your burritos so that Bar Code is exposed and readable without having to unwrap or re-wrap your burrito. It's OK if your check covers the bar code, because we take it out before scanning the bar code anyway.
  • Those of you who have seen the music room know what kind of volume we handle. All of these little rules help us to serve you better.
  • Miguel's Tape Burrito
    (Always filling, Low Cal, Non-fat, Never delicious)

    Place the submission form face-down with the top pointing away from you. Place the lyric sheets, envelopes, etc. on top of it in the same fashion. Place the cassette near the bottom of the sheets, and roll it all up from bottom to top. The end result will give you a tape burrito that will be 8 1/2 inches wide, and have the girth of a cassette. The submission form will end up on the outside, and your name and the listing number will be readily visible for our data entry people. No folding of anything! Please tuck your checks in the rubber bands so they are easily found without unraveling the whole enchilada.






REMINDER!!

REMEMBER TO PLEASE INCLUDE A SELF-ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE WITH YOUR SUBMISSION IF YOU WANT A CRITIQUE BACK.



CUSTOM CRITIQUES

If you have material you would like critiqued without responding to a specific listing, you've come to the right place. Fill out the submission form with the song title(s) and author(s) as usual, but in place of the listing number write "CUSTOM" in capital letters.
Please include a note specifying the aspects you would like the listener to address.
For example, some members like to have their craft (lyrics, rhyme, structure, etc.) closely critiqued. Others want to know for which genre their writing is best suited (sorry, but we can't recommend specific listings for you to pitch to). Still others want a review of their photos, bios, package, etc.
The submission fee is $20 per song. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and make sure to specify if you want the tape (or CD) back, or just a critique. Remember, these critiques are for your own edification and development and NOT targeted for a label or publisher, and therefore will not be forwarded.
