Blues
Return to List of Categories

NEW LISTING -- VINTAGE RECORDINGS of ORIGINAL (no covers) of 1960’s – 1970’s Male “Celtic Blues” Artists who would fall in general category of Van Morrison are needed by an A-List Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing opportunities. If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with Van Morrison’s greatest hits, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

"Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfmkgQRmmeE

"Moondance" by Van Morrison
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lFxGBB4UGU

"Tupelo Honey" by Van Morrison
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DbTIKHYwog

Van Morrison is pretty singular in his style and sound, and his genre has been called everything from “Celtic Blues,” “Celtic Jazz,” “Celtic Soul,” “Celtic R&B,” and Rock, so it’s pretty hard to call him just one thing. To state this in its most easily understood form, this publisher gets requests from Music Supervisors who ask, “Do you have anything old in that Van Morrison vein?”

So that’s what they need, old recordings from that time period that sound like they are influenced by Mr. Morrison, but are NOT clones or rip offs!

You can submit old masters or demos for this pitch. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They’re much more interested finding music that sounds authentic to the time period!

This Publisher is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and big Feature Films when they need music that is authentically from a particular time period. The Publisher pays you upfront for the master rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share of the publishing and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization.

This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buy out, cash-up-front deals with this company. Several have even received up front checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.

They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit one to three songs online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, September 4th, 2016. TAXI #Y160904CB

NEW LISTING -- WEST COAST STYLE RAP/HIP HOP SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Music Supervisor-Owned Music Licensing Company with a long list of great TV and film placements. They're on the hunt for current Rap Songs in All-Tempos that could fit in the broad RANGE of these references:

WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"Why You Always Hatin?" by YG:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-A9RnIASIk

"Boss' Life" by Snoop:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKS08HkGMA4

"King Kunta" by Kendrick Lamar:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRK7PVJFbS8

Give them well-crafted Songs that sound like a believable Rap act, with an obvious "West Coast" vibe. Your beat should be rhythmically and melodically interesting, with plenty of ear-candy to keep the audience engaged. Your vocals should use street-smart language, in a current, rhythmically compelling way. Although they didn't ask for universal lyrics, generally speaking, lyrics that don't use specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will generally get more placements.

Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists/bands or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

This Company offers both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you're inclined to do an Exclusive deal, please don't submit material for this pitch that's already signed with any other libraries or publishers. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Company and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Friday, September 9th, 2016. TAXI #S160909WR

VINTAGE RECORDINGS of ORIGINAL (no covers) of Late 1980s to Early 1990s ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by an A-List Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing opportunities. If you've got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with artists like these, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

"I Will Follow" by U2:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_2qeKGxDQI&list=PL77479CBDF3A09F40

"Twilight" by U2:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDA0A_-k7vA&indexAnything from the album

"Ten" by Pearl Jam:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYtsLtTCwZU&list=PLN8xvNIb_G5ZluRB4vu8QMXoSMTSiwoI2A

nything from the album "Automatic for the People" by R.E.M.:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yptn2jF2DbI

They are open to hearing ANYTHING you've got that would be in the Rock genre from the late 1980s to early 1990s. If your music would be on a playlist with the references above, they'll want to hear it! They're not just looking for material that sounds just like those references.

Please do not copy or rip off these artists or their songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as reference to the stylistic ballpark your material should be in!

Please send them old masters or demos of your original (no covers) of Vintage, Late 1980s to Early 1990s Songs. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today's broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They're much more interested finding music that sounds authentic to the time period!This Publisher is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and big Feature Films when they need music that is authentically from a particular time period.

The Publisher pays you upfront for the master rights and the Publisher's share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer's Share of the publishing and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization.This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who've been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buy out, cash-up-front deals with this company. Several have even received up front checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.

They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today's market!

Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS!

Please submit one to three songs online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Saturday, August 27th, 2016. TAXI #S160827RS

NEW LISTING -- 1980's INSPIRED POP/ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Major Record Label for a newly signed band that's working on their debut album. They're looking for current, catchy, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with Songs like:

"Human" by The Killers:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIZdjT1472Y

"Girls On Film" by Duran Duran:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWYA9BvxMso

"Shut Up and Dance" by Walk The Moon:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JCLY0Rlx6Q

Quoting the source: "Looking for big Pop hooks, highly stylized Tracks, led by strong synth hooks and edgy programmed drums. Lyrically, evoke a call to arms for disenfranchised kids. Themes like lost love, chasing your dreams, and being misunderstood but not caring what anyone else thinks will work well for this band."

Please submit rhythmically, melodically, and lyrically engaging songs that are current, but with an apparent '80s inspiration. You'd be wise to have a slick, polished vocal performance and overall production to get them excited about cutting your song.

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 11:59PM (PDT), on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016. TAXI #Y160907PR

NEW LISTING -- UNIQUE, DREAMY, INDIE POP/ROCK SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a really large media company for placements in several projects, including hit cable TV shows, other shows on their own network, and online media. They're looking for Original, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally be found on a playlist with these references:

"No Light, No Light" by Florence + The Machine:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGH-4jQZRcc

"Gunshot" by Lykke Li:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIruwzhozTc

"Glass" by Bat for Lashes:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLcCu414Ftg

Please submit inventive, haunting, emotional Songs that generally reflect the vibe references above. Your submissions should be well-crafted from start to finish, with fresh melodies, plenty of ear-candy (melodically, rhythmically, and lyrically), and a great chorus. Your vocals should have plenty of intensity and a certain amount of "theatrics." Universal Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably be appreciated, but we don't think they're absolutely necessary.

Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced Songs or Artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, and overall live sound. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

This new, Exclusive, In-House Library will pay an initial buyout fee of $250 for 100% of the Composition and Master rights. On top of the song track fee, you will also get 100% of the Writer's share of the publishing and make applicable performance income. This Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the music you submit for this pitch CANNOT be signed with any other publishers or catalogs.

Please submit 1-3 Songs Online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, September 11th, 2016. TAXI #S160911PR

Singer / Songwriter
Return to List of Categories

MOODY, Stripped-Down SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male and/or Female Vocals are needed by a really large media company for placements in several projects, including hit cable TV shows and online media. They pay an upfront fee of $250, see below for more details. They’re looking for acoustic guitar-based, Intimate sounding, fairly Moody and Melancholy, Down-to-Mid-Tempo Singer/Songwriter Songs with Male or Female Vocals in the general stylistic wheelhouse of songs like:

“Parachutes” Extended Version by Coldplay:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44bElffx0IE

“Faust Arp” by Radiohead: (Music starts at :44)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApToBDuDwz8

Stripped-down, LO-FI, Singer/Songwriter Songs with a very introspective vibe and some minor and/or 7th chords might work well in this context. Notice that the recordings sound very lo-fi, so don’t give them anything that’s too clean or slick sounding. They didn’t specify any lyric themes, but based on the references, your lyrics should be pretty moody and introspective as well. An intimate vocal delivery (whether Male or Female) should do the trick, and you’d probably be wise to avoid any specific names, dates, places, times, and profanity. Finger picked acoustic guitar also seems like a good idea for this pitch!

Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced acts/artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Lo-Fi home recordings will work just fine for this pitch! Your songs should be from two-three minutes long, and don’t worry if you go a few seconds short on long! Short, moody, and Lo-Fi… yeah baby!

This new, Exclusive, In-House Library will pay an initial buyout fee of $250 for 100% of the Publisher’s Share and Master rights. On top of the per track fee, you will also get 100% of the Writer’s share of the publishing and make applicable performance income. This Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the music you submit for this pitch CANNOT be signed with any other publishers or catalogs Please submit 1-3 Songs online or per CD.

Submit your music to this opportunity now.



ACOUSTIC-BASED, SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by the Head of A&R at a Major Record Label for an awesome young artist working on his latest album. Submit songs that could be found on the same playlist as acts like James TW, James Bay, Ed Sheeran, etc., etc., etc. Listen to the following references to get an idea of what they're looking for:

"When You Love Someone" by James TW
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Bf3CJZ4hvg

"Let It Go" by James Bay
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsPq9mzFNGY

"Photograph" by Ed Sheeran
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSDgHBxUbVQ

Send them contemporary, engaging, personable Singer/Songwriter Songs with mainstream appeal. Songs should have emotionally moving melodies that go hand in hand with your relatable, conversational lyrics. This artist has a great voice so don't be afraid to send songs that will challenge his vocal chops a bit.

Stripped-down demos are welcome for this pitch, but your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) 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 11:59PM (PDT), on Tuesday, August 30th, 2016. TAXI #Y160830SS

NEW LISTING -- LIVE-SOUNDING, ACOUSTIC GUITAR-Driven SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a really large media company for placements in several projects, including hit cable TV shows, other shows on their own network, and online media.

This rapidly growing industry giant is building its own Exclusive, In-House Music Library and will pay an initial buyout fee of $250 for 100% of the Publisher's share and Master rights. On top of the per track fee, you will also get 100% of the Writer's share of the publishing and make applicable performance income.

They're looking for Original Songs in All Tempos that could generally be found on a live playlist with these references:

"The Other Side" by Jason Derulo:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJG-PJTs-hA

"Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bLQ6U-1nRc

Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syxhhSFNe-c

Give them live performances that are well-performed from start to finish, with acoustic guitar as the primary instrument. Your vocals should be great as well, with a confident and well-executed performance. Although they're looking for the overall performance to sound live, your recording quality still needs to sound good. Universal Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably work best, but we don't think they're absolutely necessary. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced Songs or Artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, and overall live sound.

NEW LISTING -- MOODY, STRIPPED-DOWN, ACOUSTIC (Piano and/or Guitar) SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Supervisor-Owned Music Licensing Company that has tons of great placements in Film and TV. Take a listen to the following references to get an idea of the wide range that will work for this pitch:

"Lost Boy" by Ruth B:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58TBZnvyGwQ

"Hero of War" by Rise Against:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DboMAghWcA

Please submit emotionally compelling, stripped-down Singer/Songwriter Songs performed with an acoustic guitar or piano, and an emotionally compelling vocal performance. Your songs should be well-crafted from start to finish, with fresh melodies, compelling hooks in all sections of the song, and a chorus that delivers a deep emotional impact. Lyric themes can vary, but should be moody and something that would sound appropriate in the Singer/Songwriter genre.

TAXI Tip: The referenced songs were given to us by the Listing company, and we know that lyric in Hero of War is pretty specific. They're NOT looking for lyrics like that so much as they are looking for the overall, stripped-down production heard in the song. No specific lyric themes were requested, but lyrics that don't mention names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity generally stand a better chance of getting used in TV shows and films.

Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists/bands or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

This Company offers both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you're inclined to do an Exclusive deal, please don't submit material for this pitch that's already signed with any other libraries or publishers.

NEW LISTING -- CONTEMPORARY REGGAE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for multiple, Direct-to-Company, NON-Exclusive, $400 placements in Radio Commercials produced by a massive radio conglomerate for the company's advertisers. They're looking for several, Mid-Tempo Songs that you'd expect to hear on playlists with artists like (but not limited to):

"One Time" by Dre Island:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGCEq6s08Lw

"Keep My Head Up" by Kelissa:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CV4rX1aVIPM

"Dread At The Control" by Micah Shemaiah:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHj97H52EOY

Please submit fresh, current-sounding Reggae songs that sound like a real act, with a solid rhythm section, and a vocal performance that's both rhythmically and melodically engaging. Lyric themes can vary, but should be something you'd except to hear in Reggae music. Universal lyrics that don't use specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will work best. You'd also be smart to submit emotionally upbeat songs and avoid political-related topics for this pitch.

Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (Great sounding home recordings are fine).

The estimated licensing fee will be at least $400 per track, but they could potentially be higher depending on the duration, usage, and the specific commercial the track will be used for.

Get TWO FREE Tickets to TAXI’s Convention!

Dear Passengers,

TAXI member Jimmy Carvalho’s Forum post below tells a story that we hear over and over again. We couldn’t be more proud to have been the catalyst behind Jimmy’s growing success. His personal commitment and the help he’s gotten from his fellow TAXI members have much to do with Jimmy’s success.

The full post is too long for this email, so I’ve included a little bit of the beginning, and the last paragraph as well. Click the link below to read the entire post. I think you might find yourself saying, “Wow, he sounds pretty similar to me!”

And don’t forget to read all of the 35 new Industry Listings we just posted today!

my taxi story.. i just must share .. so good for me so far

Well as some of us might relate, I suddenly found myself getting older and gaining some weight. (LOL) So I did what most people do and jumped on a treadmill. As I walked and walked in a daze, I found myself getting really bored. So, I grabbed my IPhone to troll around YouTube for some interesting videos and mainly to keep my mind off how much I hate walking on that treadmill.

One day, I stumbled upon a TAXI TV YouTube video and found myself watching the full episodes, CRAVING MORE. Needless to say there were many more and I started walking away my extra pounds. I will say, I wasn’t completely convinced this was a legit operation with all the scams I’ve seen in this world (especially coming straight out of Los Angeles). Sooooo... I WAS a very hard sell at this point, but remained interested and proceeded to log in to the LIVE shows with the chat on USTREAM Mondays nights.

So, I researched and researched for almost 2 years, as I was somewhat hypnotized by these darn TAXI TV shows for some reason. This is I think my fourth year, and now “just this year” I’ve had 10+ placements to date (that I know of) and my first “PAID royalty BMI statement” came in just last month. Also, I now have over 35 tracks in [production music] libraries and written over 150 pieces. And again, this is completely because I joined TAXI and became a part of the community. I won’t lie there were moments where I was going to give up. But I now see this will easily take me in the direction I craved for the rest of my life... (Click here to read the whole story!)

Jimmy Carvalho

Jimmy and Thousands of Other TAXI Members Have Already Done the Research...

So many TAXI members tell us they wish they hadn’t waited years to join, once they experience the power of TAXI and its outstanding community of helpful, like-minded songwriters, artists, and composers. Here’s a reason to join now...

Get TWO FREE Tickets to a “Life-Changing” Weekend

Each and every TAXI member gets 2 FREE passes to TAXI’s world-class convention, the Road Rally. Ask anybody who has been there, and they’ll tell you that nothing else even comes close: Information, education, networking with industry professionals, meeting collaborators, and speeding up the time it takes to become successful.

If you already knew everything you need to know to become successful, you’d already be successful. As one Road Rally attendee so eloquently put it, “I’ve learned more in this one weekend than I have in the 30 years leading up to it!”

We’re so sure that you’ll love TAXI and the Road Rally that you can join TAXI, come to the Rally, and STILL get a full refund of your membership fee. Click here to see TAXI’s Guarantee.

Why aren’t we worried that you’ll join TAXI, come to the Road Rally, then ask for your money back? Because the Road Rally is that great, and so is TAXI if you do what Jimmy Carvalho and thousands of other successful members have done – use all the tools TAXI gives you, especially your TWO FREE tickets to the Road Rally!

Talk to you soon,
Michael

P.S. We’re still finishing up the schedule for this year’s Road Rally, but you’ll get a great idea of what you can expect if you look at last year’s schedule!

P.P.S. Want to see some unedited comments from people who were at last year’s Rally? Click here!

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 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.
