ROMANTIC, EUROPEAN-INSPIRED INSTRUMENTAL ARTISTS are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label looking for new talent to sign to their roster. Submit well-crafted Instrumental pieces that highlight your ability to create compelling tracks with an authentic European flair. Quoting the source: "Think French café music, Spanish Flamenco, or Italian music you'd hear while cruising in a gondola, etc. Your recording and production quality should be strong enough that we can release your music as is. Acts need to have something special and unique." Please avoid anything that sounds stiff or MIDI-driven. They're looking for Instrumentals that sound like the real deal. The specific deal points will be determined on an artist-by-artist basis directly with the Owner of this Label. Please submit one to three Instrumental performances online or per CD, and be sure to include your photo and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

TAXI # Y140903EI

Submit your music to this opportunity now.



ALL STYLES of TRADITIONAL sounding LATIN SONGS are needed by the Creative Director of a high-end Music Library that's creating a brand new catalog Latin music for great placements in Film and TV. He needs Songs in virtually ALL styles of Latin music, except contemporary Latin genres. Please keep your Marc Anthony inspired songs on the shelf for this one. Quoting the source: "We don't currently represent any Latin music, so we're looking to build a Latin section of our catalog one artist at a time. At this point we're just looking for exceptional talent, so we're indifferent if they're from Puerto Rico or Spain, solo or full band. Lyrics can be in English or any other Latin dialect, male or female. As long as it's authentic sounding, and of a high quality, we are open. In general, we always prefer actual artists as opposed to just mass songwriter/producers - but we're open to hearing both for now on this search." They're very focused on capturing the traditional sound, so don't submit anything that's obviously MIDI-driven, or electro based. Although they're really open for this pitch, submissions still need to be well performed musically and vocally. Be sure your lyrics are universal and PG-Rated, and please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, and brands. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). This company offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal, so please be sure that your songs are NOT already signed with any other catalogs or libraries. You must own or control 100% of the Master and Copyright. 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.

Procrastination Is Easy
Failure is Embarrassing

Dear Passengers,

Procrastination is easy.

Author Steven Pressfield puts it words any musician can relate to:
"Procrastination is [easy] to rationalize. We don't tell ourselves, 'I'm never going to write my symphony.' Instead we say, 'I am going to write my symphony, I'm just going to start tomorrow.'"

Of course, tomorrow becomes next week, next month, and finally it becomes, "I'm going to come to the Road Rally next year." That's procrastination at its finest!

The Road Rally is FREE!
Ask any of our successful TAXI members and they'll be very quick to tell you that the Rally is a "must do" if you really want to be successful with your music. Especially, if you want to start becoming successful now.

So why procrastinate? Do you really want to get started on your path to success a year from now? How can you rationalize that?!

Can you really hear yourself saying, "I'm going take advantage of the single greatest thing I can do to kick my music career into high gear, but I'm going to wait until next year, even though it's FREE!"

  • Do you really want to wait another year to learn what Music Supervisors, A&R People, Publishers, and Music Libraries need from you?
  • Do you really want to wait another year to meet those people face-to-face and have them hear your music?
  • Do you really want to wait another year to make friends with TAXI members who can show you the ropes and knock years off your timeline to earning income from your music?

The list of reasons to come to the Road Rally is nearly endless. But the best reason of all is that you'll go home at the end of the weekend knowing exactly what the industry needs, how to make it, and how to pitch it to them. And you get to learn all that for FREE!

You Could Procrastinate Another Year...
You could continue to take less-than-great advice from the handful of local musicians you know. How successful are they compared to these guys who make Six-Figure incomes making music with no lyrics and no vocals! Watch the video now, then read the rest of this email.

Choose Procrastination, Stay Stuck...
You can remain isolated in your basement studio for another year, procrastinating, and staying stuck right where you are now.

Or you could take a bold step forward and join the friendliest, most helpful and supportive group of fellow musicians and music industry professionals you'll ever meet. Change your life this year, not next! Remember, we DO NOT make a single penny if you come to the Rally or you don't! Here's why I'm practically begging you to come...

We Want to Brag About Your Success!
That'swhat motivates us to spend hundreds of hours planning and executing what everybody says is by far the best conference of its type anywhere! We know that if you come to the Road Rally, your chances of success go up dramatically!

And when you're successful, your musician friends will see it and want to do exactly what you did.

Save Big Bucks by Acting Now
I know that November 6th–9th feels like it gives you plenty of time to procrastinate, but you know how that will end up ;-)

Why pay more for your plane ticket when you can save a boatload of money if you buy it now? Why wait until the discounted Road Rally hotel rooms sell out and pay a lot more than your fellow members who've already reserved them?

Steven Pressfield is right about procrastination. The two gentlemen who make Six-Figure incomes with their music didn't get to that level by saying, "I am going to write music for Film and TV, I'm just going to start tomorrow."

Click here to learn more about the Road Rally. Why would you procrastinate when you've got a FREE ticket for you, and a second FREE ticket for a guest? Are you waiting to go to another conference that charges you at least $700? I didn't think so!

See you at the Rally,
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 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.
