Legendary Music Supervisor Maureen Crowe to Receive TAXI's Lifetime Achievement Award At Road Rally 2014

Dear Passengers,

I'm extremely proud to announce that legendary Hollywood Music Supervisor Maureen Crowe will be our Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and Keynote Interview this year at the TAXI Road Rally, November 6th–9th in Los Angeles. I had dinner with Maureen some months ago. I learned so much about how music supervisors think and what makes them choose one piece of music over another that it made my head spin.

Maureen pioneered much of what today is known as the craft of music supervision, long before supervisors became the much sought after "rock stars" they are today. If you want the people who choose the music that gets placed in Hollywood blockbusters and TV shows to pick your music, then you need to know what they look for and why they look for it.

Maureen Crowe knows that and so much more.

I PROMISE you this will not be like any other "standard" interview with a music supe. This will be the one you'll never forget! Why?

Because Maureen Crowe is so smart, so experienced, and so insightful that you won't be able to write notes quickly enough to keep up with her! Trust me, I've tried!

Time is Running Out
With little more than two months until the Road Rally explodes with the information and contacts you need, it's time to get serious about booking your TWO FREE seats (if you're already a TAXI member), or joining TAXI now to get your TWO FREE tickets if you're not already a member.

We're still putting the finishing touches on all the panels, classes, speakers and One-to-One Mentor sessions, but you can get a good overview of what you can expect at the Road Rally by clicking here!

Get Great Deals on Virtual Instruments This Year!!!
I've also just confirmed that Westlake Pro (LA's premier provider of everything you need for your studio, no matter what size!) will be sponsoring this year's Road Rally! They're going to have TONS of Virtual Instrument libraries there at really great prices. And lots of other gear sold at Road Rally discounts as well!

Finally, a Road Rally where you can find out what the best Virtual Instrument packages are for you, and get them at killer prices. Yay, Westlake Pro! Check out all the brands of gear and software they sell! BTW, they'll be happy to ship your gear to your home state for those who'd like to save taxes and the hassle of schlepping stuff home on the plane!

This is shaping up to be by FAR the best Road Rally ever! We're doing even more panels that are what you want and need, rather than the same old stuff served up elsewhere. You'll go home knowing where to start, exactly what to do, and how long it will take you to start earning your living doing what you love!

If You Think This is Hype…
If you think this is hype, think again!!! We don't charge you to come to the Road Rally. We don't make a penny whether you come or lose money if you don't. We go through thousands of hours of preparation to put on the best convention of its kind for one reason only — to help you succeed.

Okay, we admit it... we also want you to go home and tell your friends how great TAXI is. Just like you want the people who hear your music to tell their friends how great it is.

You can find everything you need to get your TWO FREE tickets and book your hotel room by clicking here! And remember, TAXI doesn't make a dime if you come or you don't! We are NOT motivated by money. We're motivated by helping our members to live their dreams instead of just dreaming about them.

Talk to you soon,
Michael

P.S. And don't forget to carefully check out this entire new batch of Industry Listings. TAXI's Listings are always real, from people who actually need new music. We never pay anybody or split submission fees with the listing "companies" like the TAXI copycats. We like to do things the old fashioned way, with integrity.

PLEASE NOTE!

If you are submitting by mail (ground submissions) and sending in a CD or tape, please enclose a S.A.S.E. (self-addressed stamped envelope) if you would like a response. Thank you!

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.
