CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with a soulful vibe and Male Vocals are needed by a well-connected, Nashville Publisher for a relatively new, yet promising Country Artist that's already had a Top 20 Single! Give them well-crafted, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the stylistic wheelhouse of artists like Brantley Gilbert, David Nail, Luke Bryan, etc., etc., etc. Quoting the source: "This artist's first single went to the top of the Country charts, which is a pretty amazing accomplishment, so songs need to be strong enough to keep him there. He co-writes a lot, so keep in mind that songs pitched for the listing will need to be immediately recognizable as current and competitive. He's on the younger side of the Country market, so lyrics need to be age-appropriate. Songs about being married, middle-aged, having kids, etc., aren't a realistic fit for him. The songs you send should be current sounding, with radio-competitive melodies that stay in your head, and choruses that are easy to sing along with, and relate to. Well-crafted stories with tons of imagery and innovative lyrical concepts are essential." Submit songs that are as current as it gets, with well-developed melodies, hooks, and lyrics. Your themes should focus on a visual story, with a conversational, compelling, and direct approach. Be sure your chorus has a quality that's clearly above the rest! Your demo quality should be competitive with songs being pitched on Music Row. Please submit one to three songs online or per CD, include lyrics.

Is TAXI's Success Rate Exaggerated?
You Be the Judge!

Dear Passengers,

I got an email from one of the Film/TV Music Publishers we work with a couple days ago. He sent me a Cue Sheet showing the music used in just one TV show, and the remarkable number of TAXI members who had their music in that show!

What was even more interesting was how many of those members had more than one piece of music in the show. One guy had six placements, another had seven, and yet none of our members took the time to even let us know about those placements!

TAXI's "Success Rate"
This has been an ongoing problem since I started TAXI, way back in 1992! While we've always said that 6% of our members typically get deals in any given year, we've only counted what we are told about! When I see cue sheets like the one I'm holding in my hand right now, I've got to believe that number is much, much greater than we've ever reported.

And we don't even count the "multi-deals" like this:
My direct-to-Supervisor forward becomes much more...

"Was lucky enough to have 3 scary pieces get forwarded directly to the music supervisor last week, for the [TAXI] horror cue listing. He reached out to me yesterday inquiring about the PRO info for 2 of 'em (to which I eagerly replied).

After bouncing emails back and forth, [the music supervisor] was interested in me sending over everything I have in that style, that wasn't already signed to a library. Now he has 15 pieces of music to potentially use in his series.

I was sort of daydreaming about something like this happening. After approaching the conversation cautiously, it came to fruition!

This is gonna be good! Be cool ... Be thorough and cordial ... Get to the point ... and make them want to work with you!"

Time to write some more,
Peter D'Angelo

Should that count as 1 deal, 3 deals, or 15 deals?

I was looking for more examples of unreported deals or placements on our Forum, and saw this post:

Season 5 Premier of Shameless features lots of TAXI members
"Got my first major placement last night! whoo hoo!! 2 years with TAXI, dozens of forwards and about a couple dozen songs in a few different libraries.

The song used in Shameless was the result of a TAXI forward almost a year ago. It was a collaboration with Axel Bauer and I (under the group name - Mom's Basement).

About 40 seconds of the instrumental was used during a pretty cool fight scene in the Season 5 premier of Shameless on Showtime last night.

The really cool thing - that same episode also featured music from [TAXI member] Paul Otten and another song by [TAXI members] Bamtone & Rich Trevor. How cool is that!!

Here's the link to the full song."

Eric Campbell

Wait Till You See This List!
I'm pretty sure I'd heard about some of those other placements in Shameless, but I was curious to see if any other TAXI members had placements on the show. I searched my computer and found 7 members who had placements in Shameless in 2014!

My curiosity was really piqued at that point, so I searched my computer for "TAXI member placements," and found this list compiled two years ago, in 2013. And again, these were just what we were told about, and this list is already two years old!

Why am I telling you this? Three reasons:

  1. If you're a TAXI member who is getting deals and placements, please take the time to let us know! Email us at memberservices(at)taxi(dot)com or deals(at)taxi(dot)com, and put MEMBER DEAL in the subject line.
  2. If you're a member who hasn't renewed because you were frustrated that you got "forwards" from TAXI but didn't hear back from the listing company, I'll bet many of you eventually did! And how many other great opportunities have you missed while you didn't belong to TAXI?
  3. If you're not a TAXI member yet, but you fall into the "I've been reading your Industry Listings and 'watching' you guys for years" category, then consider this...

The vast, vast, vast majority of those TV placements (not even mentioning the thousands of publishing deals, film placements, and TV commercials not listed here) are from musicians very much like you. Most of them had never made a plug nickel licensing their music before they joined TAXI. Hardly any of them were "ready" when they joined TAXI. And virtually all of them used TAXI to learn what the music industry wanted and how to give it to them because they joined TAXI.

Can we promise you overnight success?

No.

• Can we promise that you'll have the same opportunities our successful members get? Yes!

• Can we promise that your music will always be heard by the same highly-credentialed, genre-specific experts our successful members are heard by when you submit to TAXI? Yes!

• Can we promise that you don't need a big, expensive home studio to make music that makes money? Yes! You'd be shocked by how many of our successful members have relatively basic studios!

And if you're thinking that you just don't have the time to work at this because you have a family, job, and a mortgage, read these inspiring articles. Click here and here.

Current members, stick with the plan and use the deadlines to keep you motivated and productive.

Former members, where would you be now if you had stuck with it?

Future members, what excuse do you have for not getting started when you see overwhelming evidence that TAXI works for everyday people just like you?

Talk to 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.
