NEW LISTING -- EMOTIONALLY RAW, ACOUSTIC-SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Major International Record Label for an amazingly talented, award-winning artist working on a brand new record. They're eager to find emotionally moving Mid-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of artists Damien Rice, David Gray, Ben Howard, etc. Quoting the source: "The lyrics need to be emotionally raw, vulnerable, visual, and conversational. The imagery and vocal phrasing needs to be contemporary. Solid structure and melodic transitions that underscore the lyrical message are best." Songs need to be well-structured, with captivating melodies, intriguing hooks, and a really extraordinary chorus. Acoustic demos will work, but your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. All deals are made on a deal-by-deal basis. Please submit one to three songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener hand-picked by the Label and must be received no later than Tuesday, November 18, 2014.
TAXI # S141118AS

Submit your music to this opportunity now.



NEW LISTING -- MOODY, ACOUSTIC-BASED, CONTEMPORARY SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with FEMALE VOCALS are needed by the Owner of a busy, A-List Music Library that's running their first round of listings with TAXI! Give them original, well-crafted Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist as artists like Missy Higgins, A Fine Frenzy, Rachel Yamagata, etc., etc. Submit TV-friendly songs with captivating melodies, well-crafted lyrics, and a super engaging chorus that can emotionally connect with the audience. Your vocals should sound believable, honest, and inviting. Universal lyric themes about lost love and the trials and tribulations of life will work best for this pitch. Please avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll keep 100% of the Writers share of performance royalties and the company will get 100% of the Publisher's share. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure your material is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright to pitch for this. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). Please submit one to three songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than Wednesday, November 19, 2014.

How Approachable Are Music Supervisors?

Dear Passengers,

I hated that I had to work last Saturday when everybody else had the day off. But something started to happen that made it all worthwhile!

Every few minutes, I'd hear the "ding" that announces a new email has just landed in my inbox. One by one I opened them up, and with each successive email the smile on my face grew broader. Why?

Because the emails were from a bunch of super heavy-weight music industry pros confirming they'd be more than happy to join us in three weeks for the Road Rally — our FREE, members-only convention. One email in particular really put a smile on my face. It was from Music Supervisor Tracy McKnight, and it simply said,

"Hi Michael,
I would be happy to be on the panel. This sounds fun! Thanks for including me.
Best,
Tracy"

At face value, Tracy's email might not say much. To me, it spoke volumes!

I've been told by reliable sources that Tracy is "The coolest Music Supervisor ever." The fact that she is taking time out of her extremely busy life to help our members become successful would have been enough to make me smile. That her intuition told her the Rally would be "fun," was icing on the cake. She's already got that famous Road Rally "vibe."

But when she thanked me for "including" her, I knew Tracy would fit right in and be a great panelist. That's the pervasive spirit at every Rally — inclusion! There's a tremendous feeling of comradery there — even with the industry pros!

Here's a woman who's been the Executive in Charge of Music at Lionsgate Films and/or Music Supervisor on 121 films, and she's thanking me for including her! Click here to see her credits. And she's one of five Music Supervisors who will be hearing our members' music on that panel in three weeks. And that's just one of many great panels!

So, what are you doing that could possibly be better than spending a weekend with Tracy McKnight and nearly 100 more music industry executives, mentors and experts in just about every area of the business you could ever want to learn about? Seriously?!

Just Three Weeks Left!
The Road Rally is just 3 short weeks away (November 6th-9th). To get a cheap plane ticket, you need to get it in gear! The time is now. The Road Rally is free. You only need to miss one day of work to get what people say is a lifetime of information in just three days.

Is the Rally Really Worth It?
"I know travel expenses don't come easy especially during these tough times. It would never be for me to say how someone else should juggle their already stretched budget. If you want to make the most of your TAXI membership and career, attending at least one Rally is invaluable. I just wanted to mention how much one can learn in a few days -- things that could turn the direction of a music career around in the blink of an eye."
–Casey Hurowitz

Bring Your Spouse to the Rally?
"I'm a new member and my wife talked me into the Rally. I am glad she did. It was a life- changing event for me. I have never been to any conference of any kind in which the folks were so open and friendly. I thought my wife would be bored, but she loved it! The information was eye opening and I really have an idea now of what it takes to succeed."
–Marlin Fowler

If You're a Little Shy...
"There is a feeling of camaraderie at the Road Rally — even the most shy will make friends. This is a must-attend event. There are years of knowledge and experience to be gained from this incredible weekend."
–Hugh Lehane

Need a refresher course on what's happening at the Road Rally this year? Click here!

If You're Not a TAXI Member Yet...
Starting your membership now, then going to the Road Rally will give you a tremendous advantage in coming out of the gate strong! Why spend a whole year trying to figure out what the industry needs and how to give it to them, when you can learn it all in just one weekend?

Click here, and we'll see you for this life-changing event in just THREE WEEKS!

See you soon,
Michael

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.
