Return to List of Categories

SONGS with Lyric Themes that have “Children of the Revolution” in them are needed by an A-List Music Licensing Company that pays up front Buy Out Fees up to $500. Male or Female Vocals are both welcome for his pitch. They are open to ANY contemporary genre, and we’re pretty sure they have a specific placement in mind for this. We don’t think the songs they choose will sit in a file waiting for the right request to come in. It’s pretty clear they have a target, and we’re guessing that it might be a TV series that can use songs wit this them more than once.

They’re open All Tempos, as well as a variety of current genres (Rock, Hip Hop, Singer/Songwriter, EDM, Chillwave, etc., etc. are ALL possibilities for this!) as long as the lyric theme of your song has “Children of the Revolution” in it. We think it might be best if that phrase is in the chorus. The screeners will be looking mostly for songs that strike them as cool and interesting, with the lyric phrase obviously included. Your production and arrangements can rage from stripped-down, Lo-Fi Guitar/Vocal to trippy Electro, to straight up Rock, and anything else you can think of. This is a case where something that’s on the edge might work, but don’t go overboard. Universal lyrics are probably still a good idea, so please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places. “Appropriate” Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). This company offers an EXCLUSIVE Buy Out Deal. They buy the Copyright and Master recording rights for $300 to $500 per song. You keep 100% of the writer’s share, and make performance income on the back end from your PRO.

We think "I Put a Spell on You" is her signature song, so if you've got anything that sounds like that vibe, from that era, send it in!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 sounds authentic to a particular time period.

Not a problem Ð they're looking for authenticity!

Check out the examples below to see if you’ve got some old demos or masters that would work for this pitch:

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 sounds authentic to a particular time period. 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 checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) while still keeping their writer’s share of the publishing and getting performance royalties from their PRO on the back end! Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the number and quality of the songs singed by the Publisher.

Even if your recordings were recorded live to mono or stereo tape, or done in an old 4-track, 8-track or 16-track studio, they could still be perfect for this company if they sound reasonably good.

Changes at TAXI in 2016...

Dear Passengers,

TAXI has come screaming out of the gate in 2016! Just in case you haven't noticed, we've upped our game when it comes to bringing in more opportunities, and more importantly, even better opportunities! We've been really humping it since the holidays, and the efforts have begun to pay off pretty quickly.

We've also started adding links to referenced artists and/or songs (whenever possible) in our "Regular" Industry Listings that we publish on the 1st and 15th of every month, not just in our daily "Special" Listings that go out nearly every day of the year! We've already seen an uptick in members hitting the sweet spot and getting more forwards now that most listings have links to the references in them.

We're glad you're listening before you submit. It's the smart thing to do!

Maybe You Didn't Know This...

By the way, I had a phone call from a member last week who was telling me how much she appreciated our Listings, but she wondered why so many of them have deadlines that are just 4 days away. Together, we figured out that she had not been paying attention to the emails we send out on the 1st and 15th of every month. She didn't realize that the 3 or 4 Listings that appear right under the daily "Special" Listings are reminders of upcoming deadlines for the "Regular" listings.

I would imagine that she's not the only person who might not realize that the FIRST Listing in the daily updates are hot off the press, and the Listings that follow the first one are reminders about the Listings published on the 1st and 15th!

There are generally about 35 brand new Listings published every two weeks. It's really important that you take five or ten minutes to look at those emails on the 1st and 15th so you can find the opportunities that work for you and have plenty of time to get your submissions in on time.

If you think those Listings you see in the daily emails all have short deadlines, you're probably overlooking the big batches sent out on the 1st and 15th and you could have had MUCH more time to get your music to us.

Thank You!

And finally, I'd like to thank each and every one of you who have sent condolence cards to my family and me since the passing of my mother in December. We are very touched by your thoughtfulness, kind words, and prayers. I don't know of too many other companies who are blessed to have customers who are more like family than "customers."

You are a very special and wonderful group of people, and you are deeply appreciated!

Thank you,
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 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.
