The Crazy Things You've Done
to Kill Your Music Career!

Dear Passengers,

I started this year's TAXI Road Rally with a speech, but it wasn't the speech I'd written weeks before the event. Something happened that stopped me dead in my tracks. I ripped up the old speech and looked out at a ballroom full of songwriters, artists, and composers from all over the world and told them this...

"Every year, we have a theme that seems to permeate the Road Rally. One year it was Generosity. Another year it was Perseverance. This year was supposed to be Integrity, but that speech ended up in my trash." Why?

Because something happened a week before the convention that blew my mind! If I hadn't heard it many times before, I might not have believed it. I re-named the theme of this year's Road Rally, Tough Love! Are you dying to know why?

Here it is: We ran a Listing for a new music library. Small? Yes. New? Yes! Credible? Absolutely! We carefully check companies out before we'll run a TAXI Listing for them, and this new little company passed the test.

We got a little more than 100 submissions for their first listing, and 10 of them made it onto the library owner's desk. He reached out to 3 of the 10. It was a non-exclusive deal, so it was pretty much a no-risk deal.

And here's what happened...
One of three people responded, signed the deal, and his music was sent to the executive producer of a big, primetime, broadcast network TV show. Executive producers are typically the bosses of the music supervisors, so that was a pretty big deal!

Another one of the three decided he didn't want to sign with a "new" music library - even though, in my opinion, he couldn't get hurt because it was a non-exclusive deal. Even if the library did nothing, so what? Why then did that person submit to a Listing that said, "new music library" in the very first sentence if he wasn't interested in signing with a new music library?

Go figure!

But it was the third person whose actions, or lack thereof, who really blew my mind. Person number three didn't even respond to the email from the music library... at ALL!

Oh, we've heard this before. Dozens of times! And we've heard it from really big, important music libraries and publishers. Musicians don't respond to their emails, phone calls or deal offers! We've reached out and asked people why they didn't, and the number one answer was... wait for it... "I got scared and was worried that they'd try to steal my music or offer me a bad deal, so I just didn't respond."

So, let's get this straight...
You've wanted to get paid for the music you make for your entire life! You've joined TAXI and become good enough that you music gets forwarded to really good companies — companies that TAXI thoroughly checks out before we'll take a Listing from them. And when they hear your music and want to sign you, you don't respond because you're "scared"... ughhh!

You could have called us to further check them out. You could have asked for opinions from your fellow members who've done deals with them and made money! You could have Googled them!

The very last thing you should ever do is get scared and freeze!

My staff and I go to extraordinary lengths to bring you the very best opportunities in the business. We check the companies out before we'll even run a listing for them! We keep tabs on them to make sure our members who sign with them are happy.

We've been fooled, kind of!
And only twice in our 22 year history have we ever regretted running a listing for a particular company. And in both of those cases, their so-called "sins" weren't really that egregious. But, out of an abundance of caution, we quit working with them. That's twice, out of thousands upon thousands of Listings over 22 years.

Hoisted by your own petard?
And this example I've just told you about is only one example of the crazy things we've seen musicians do to kill their music careers. Someday, I'll write the book!

But for today, one thing you can do to AVOID killing your music career is to take the time to REALLY read the Industry Listings we've just sent you! These people have signed deals, and have or will earn income with their music because they read the Listings and responded to the companies that reached out to them.

What are you going to do? Don't make me come to your house and chew you out ;-) Tough love, baby... tough love.

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.
