NEW LISTING -- Mainstream, Top 40 Pop Songs needed by Legendary A&R Person/Producer for an extremely talented, hard-working, young Female Artist. They're casting a 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. Your submissions can range from material that would work for artists like: Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, 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 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, March 16, 2015.

NEW LISTING -- HEARTFELT, ACOUSTIC-BASED INDIE SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the Head of A&R at a Major Record Label for a really talented, charting artist working on a new record. Give them story-driven, Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that would appeal to the fans of artists like Damien Rice, Laura Marling, Bon Iver, etc., etc., etc. This is for a Female artist, but a submission with a Male vocal could work as long as the lyrics could be sung from a female perspective. Quoting the source: "Songs should be sensitive and introspective, with visual lyrics. Subject matter is open. Structure should be solid. Songs should have memorable melodies that support a delicate, but emotionally resonant delivery." Submit songs with a strong melodic structure that draws the audience in, coupled with a fresh, well-crafted lyric that keeps listeners fully engaged from start to finish. Be sure your vocal performance captures the honest and believable delivery the referenced artists all share. 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 by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Label - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than Friday, March 27, 2015.

How Long Do Music Supervisors Keep Music On File?

Dear Passengers,

Nothing frustrates musicians more than getting their music "forwarded" by TAXI, and not hearing back from the person on the receiving end. Not knowing if your song or track is going to get used probably feels like slow, painful form of torture. We understand, but that painful waiting period can produce some remarkable results!

Several years ago we sent a member's song to the Music Supervisor of the HBO show, Californication. It was a cover of the Beatles' song, Blackbird. He didn't hear anything for SIX years! The member quit submitting to TAXI and hasn't been a member for years.

He recently re-kindled our friendship and told me that the A-List Music Supervisor reached out to him six years after we sent his song to her. She licensed the master recording of his Blackbird cover for the CBS primetime show, Unforgettable.

The Supervisor had kept it in her iTunes all these years, and remembered that she had it when she needed it. He got a check for $7,500 — for a cover, no less!

Longtime TAXI member John Mazzei just posted this on the TAXI forum:
"Here's a little story that illustrates the old but true adages that "things tend to move slowly in this business," and "patience and write, pitch, forget, repeat" still ring true.

Some old timers here may remember that I landed a placement on True Blood back in Season 1. This was 2009. The placement was for a piece I wrote in 2007 or 2008 for a completely different pitch, but eventually it ended up in the hands of the supervisor for True Blood in 2009. This placement, BTW, was the result of a relationship started with a TAXI forward sometime in 2006.

Yesterday (Wednesday the 25th of February 2015), out of the blue, I get an e-mail directly from the True Blood Music Supervisor wanting to use the same piece in an indie film. He had the piece but he couldn't remember where it came from. I immediately put the publisher in touch with him and we are waiting for a contract to come over. There is a fairly decent sync fee associated with this placement as well!

So here's a piece I wrote 7 or 8 years ago still out there working for me.

For those who get discouraged when you get a forward and don't hear back from the listing party, keep in mind that it's highly likely that even though they didn't choose your piece for that specific opportunity, it's probably in their iTunes library categorized so they can find it again. Sometimes you'll hear back months or even years later about that track. Sometimes you never hear back but that's really the nature of the business.

Hang in there and keep writing and pitching!"

Back to the studio,

Peace,
Mazz

Fact: Music Supervisors Often Keep The Music They Love On File Until the Day They Need It!

If you're a current TAXI member:
Let these (not-that-uncommon) examples help you from becoming discouraged. While most placements don't take this long, some do. Keep planting those seeds, and over time, some will blossom!

If you're a former TAXI member:
Think about how many other "seeds" you would have planted if you hadn't stopped submitting because you get frustrated! Our members coined the often-used phrase, "Write, submit, forget, and repeat" for good reason! Keep feeding the beast, and know that some of them could turn into $7,500 checks!

When people ask — as they often do — "Did you make enough money to pay for your membership?" do the math! That $7,500 check would have paid for 37 years of TAXI membership and renewals. Thirty-seven years!!!!

If you're not a TAXI member yet:
How many seeds have you NOT planted during the years you've been thinking about joining TAXI? We'll give you the access you need and the tools to find out what you do best. We'll also give you motivation you need to keep going.

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.
