NEW LISTING -- MAINSTREAM, TOP 40 POP SONGS are needed by a Legendary A&R Person/Producer for a young artist he's currently working with. We recently ran this opportunity as Listing #Y150316PO, and he's still looking for more songs!! They need a full record's worth of material, and they're using TAXI as a primary source. If you made a submission to that listing, please send different material this time around. They're casting a pretty wide net for this pitch, so feel free to submit Songs in All-Tempos. If you submit ballads, they'll need to be exceptionally strong! We think Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs will have the best shot, but a KILLER ballad could work! Your submissions can range from material that would work for artists like: Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, etc., etc., etc.

On the slower side, if you've got songs that could work for the references above, take the shot! Like we said, this artist is pretty wide open. The Producer did tell us to shy away from "songs with dumb lyrics," so consider yourself forewarned. If you've got songs with lyrics that skew a little "deeper," those should put a smile on the Producer's face.

Although this artist isn't signed yet, she's working with one of the greatest (and most well-connected) A&R people of all time. He tells us she's got all those special things that add up to being chart-bound, and nobody knows better than this guy! This is a great chance to get in on the ground floor and become part of her "camp" before she hits and the competition to get songs to her becomes much, much harder. It's also a great opportunity to be on this producer/A&R person's radar for other projects as well.

Your songs should have infectious melodies, well-crafted (not "dumb") lyrics, and a big, fat Pop chorus with tons of commercial appeal. They'd prefer to hear demos with high production quality. However, this producer is a "song guy" who is also willing to listen to basic stripped-down guitar/vocal or piano/vocal demos if the song is "exceptional." Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. 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 Monday, April 20, 2015.

How to Get 3,000 Placements For Your Music

Dear Passengers,

I know I talk about the TAXI Forum, the feedback from TAXI's A&R Team, and our free, members-only convention, The Road Rally all the time. You're probably sick of it, but those three things, combined with our weekly episodes of TAXI TV are some of the greatest tools ever offered if you truly want to become successful with your music.

I got the letter below a week or two ago from one of our members who embodies everything a TAXI member should be! Lydia Ashton is a valued member of the TAXI community, and beloved by all of us who know her. Besides being a great composer, she's also a mom with three kids!

Rather than me saying anything else, just read the letter below. It's about as inspiring as it gets. Here's a little hint: 3,000 placements, and 12,000 plays in more than 150 countries!

If you're using all the things TAXI brings to the table for you, you could be sending me a letter like the one below. I'm so proud of Lydia that it puts a lump in my throat every time I read her letter. Thanks for sending it in Lydia!

Dear Michael,

You asked recently that members report their deals, so here is a letter sharing some of my successes. I am very thankful that you started TAXI and for how you sincerely care for all the members. I have much to thank you for!

I joined TAXI summer of 2008. At the time I had scored several indie films, but had never written for TV. Since then, I have learned much through writing for TAXI listings as well as through being active on the TAXI Forum and attending the TAXI Rally.

Being a mother of 3, who homeschooled my children the last few years, I have not been as active submitting to listings or writing music as many of my colleagues. The last few years I have spent about 15-20 hours per week on music (if even that). That said, through staying focused and using what I have learned through TAXI I have still been able to accomplish much. I would not be where I am at without TAXI - I am very thankful for the things I have learned through TAXI and the connections I have made.

I signed a couple of pieces due to a forward back in 2012, but most of my success is due to networking done on the TAXI forum and at the TAXI Road Rally. Here are some numbers...

• I have signed with 15 libraries since joining TAXI in 2008
• I have signed 348 pieces since 2008 (95 of these are collaborations) Never underestimate the power of collaborating!)
• I had my first placement summer of 2010. I have had about 3,000 placements since then. (Counting reruns and foreign airings I have had about 12,000 plays)
• My music has been used in over 85 TV shows.
• My music has been heard in 150+ countries.

Due to connections made on the TAXI Forum, I landed the Main Title Theme for the Nate Berkus Show, a syndicated daily talk show on NBC, which aired 2010-2011. (This was another collaboration, btw.)

TAXI gave a stay-at-home mom from the middle of nowhere a chance at a career writing music for TV, and I am so thankful I get to earn money doing something I love.

Thank you!

Best regards,
Lydia Ashton

PS. The children went back to school last fall, and thus I am now spending more time composing. Watch out world - here I come! ;)

PPS. You can see my list of my TV credits here, and my film credits here.

If you're not a member of TAXI yet, it's probably time to just do it!

If you haven't renewed your membership, what have you done since that's worked out as well as being part of the TAXI community like Lydia Ashton?

If you're a current TAXI member, and you're not using our Forum, going to the Road Rally, using the feedback from our A&R people, or watching TAXI TV, how many more letters like Lydia's do you need to see to be convinced that it's the combination of all that TAXI offers that helps our members achieve the success they've always wanted?

Talk to you soon,
Michael

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.
