Themes like love shared, heartbreak, regret, or any other general relationship-based theme would work best for this pitch. Songs need to have a solid song structure, with well-positioned hooks, both melodically and lyrically. A chorus that showcases both Male and Female vocals together would work really well for this pitch. The overall vocal performance should be sung in a way that immediately connects to the audience, with an honest and heartfelt delivery. They ask that you have an instrumental version on hand, but you don't need to send it in now. General and Universal lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, profanity, or detailed storylines will work best. Broadcast quality is needed (excellent home recordings are fine). This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split the sync fee 50/50. You'll retain 100% of the Master rights, and the Library will keep 100% of the Publishing for any placements they generate. You must own 100% of your Master and Copyright in order to submit for this opportunity. Please submit one to three songs online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than Thursday, January 1, 2015.

NEW LISTING -- LOVE-THEMED, ACOUSTIC-BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Grammy Award Winning Producer who's eagerly hunting for awesome material for artists he's currently working with. Give him well-structured, emotionally upbeat Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would immediately appeal to the fans of artists like Priscilla Ahn, Colbie Caillat, Sara Bareilles, A Fine Frenzy, etc., etc., etc. Quoting the source: "Songs don't have to be solely acoustic, but acoustic guitar or piano should be the primary focus. Whistles and handclaps would be a great addition, but they're not absolutely necessary. Lyrics should be refreshing, not the same lyrics that we've all heard a million times before." Give him lighthearted songs with compelling melodic and lyrical hooks to keep listeners engaged, with a big, sing-a-long chorus that's instantly memorable. Lyric themes about the positive aspects of love and relationships only for this pitch, please. Acoustic demos can work for this pitch, but your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, and good enough to represent your song well. Fully produced demos are also welcomed, as always. 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, January 6, 2015.

This company really gets out there and hustles! Give them innovative, emotional, Down-Tempo Ballads that could be found on the same melancholy playlist as artists like Agnes Obel, Christina Perri, Dillon, etc. Tug at the heartstrings with heartbreaking lyrics sung in an honest, sincere, and emotionally gripping way. Your songs should be piano-focused, with plenty of room for the vocals to emotionally connect with the audience. The more simple and stripped down the better, although, other instrumentation can be used as well. Keep you lyrics universal, avoiding references to specific names, dates, places, brands, and profanity. Also, please do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. This Library offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You'll keep 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Writer's share. They'll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Publisher's Share. You must own or control 100% of the Master and Copyright. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

NEW LISTING -- MALE and FEMALE, ACOUSITC-BASED SINGER/SONGWRITERS are needed by the Head of A&R at a Major Record Label that's seriously eager to find some awesome new talent to expand their roster.

They're open to artists that are piano or acoustic guitar focused, as long as you've got some chops. Touring experience, a growing fan base, and any CD or online sales are always a big plus, so please be sure to include that info in your bio.

NEW LISTING -- FEMALE, ACOUSTIC-BASED SINGER/SONGWRITERS with some POP APPEAL are needed by the Head of A&R at a Major Independent Record Label that's in expansion mode at the moment. Give them great Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would instantly appeal to the fans of artists like Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, Ingrid Michaelson, etc., etc., etc. They want artists who are out there, actively making a name for themselves, and eagerly ready to take their career to the next level. Your submissions should be centered around Piano or Acoustic Guitar, with a well-crafted song structure full of engaging hooks both melodically and lyrically. Ideally, they want artists who can craft songs that deliver a relatable story. Touring experience, a growing fan base, and any CD or online sales are always a big plus, so be sure to include that info in your bio. Vocal and instrumental presentation needs to be very impressive! All deals will be negotiated on a Deal-by-Deal basis. Please submit two to three songs online or per CD, include lyrics, photo, and bio.

Her star is rising in the U.K. so we want the right songs to help her connect with the U.S. market." Give them incredibly well crafted songs with heartfelt lyrics that anyone can relate to. Your melodies need to be highly memorable, with plenty of hooks to keep the audience fully engaged from beginning to end. A standout chorus that's super compelling, with all the appeal of a hit will help you rise to the top for this pitch. Thoughtful lyrics themes that don't go to the sad or moody lane will work best. Stripped down demos are okay for this pitch. 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.

What Music Supervisors Want Most

Dear Passengers,

My recent article, "The Dumbest Thing You Can Say to a Music Supervisor" got 500% more clicks than any other article we published in 2014! If you haven't read it yet, click here to learn what NOT to say to a music supervisor.

Shortly after the article was published, I got an email asking, "If that's the dumbest thing you can say to a music supervisor, what's the thing music supervisors want most?"

Music supervisors want you to make their job easier, and you can do that by solving problems for them. Give them music they need for whatever they're working on at the moment and they'll love you for it! Get it to them in a hurry, make it easy to license, and you'll have a friend for life.

And this rule of thumb isn't just for music supervisors! It generally applies to everybody in the music industry: Music libraries, advertising agencies, publishers, and even A&R people at record labels. Most industry professionals are working on specific projects, and they frequently have deadlines they need to meet.

Some examples:

  • When music libraries found out CBS was going to launch NCIS New Orleans, they all rushed to find great Cajun and New Orleans Jazz songs and instrumentals. When Christmas is coming they scramble to find fresh new holiday music they can pitch.
  • Publishers find out that a major label artist is getting ready to record a new record and they all rush to get a "cut" for one of their writers on that record. They're competing against all the other publishers, so they can't be lackadaisical. The first publisher through the door with the right song wins!
  • Crushing deadlines and very specific needs means that industry professionals don't have the time to sit around listening to "cool music" that can't solve their problem. Give them what they need when they need it. Solve their problem, and make their job easier. That's what they want most!

    And that's why TAXI goes to great lengths to bring you listings that are very fresh and current. That's why we go the extra mile to give you the details that help you pitch the right music — what tempo is needed; which lyric themes will work best; which reference songs or tracks are truly the best examples of what they need; what type of instrumentation and arrangement could get you closer to the target; what kind of approach you should take on the vocal... all those details you read in our Industry Listings are in there so you're not guessing or wasting your time, effort, and money.

    I was looking at the listings on another well-known site this morning and saw that 16 of their 47 listings had been running since early 2013. That's nearly two years! I've seen listings descriptions on other sites that are only two sentences long.

    How could you possibly give a music supervisor what they want most when you're not given the information you need to help them solve his or her problem?

    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.
