CURRENT-Sounding ADULT CONTEMPORARY BALLADS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Licensing Company with a long and impressive list of great placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

"If the World Was Ending" by JP Saxe feat. Julia Michaels

Lyric Tip: We think that you could go in a variety of directions for this pitch, lyric-wise. Whether you submit Ballads that are about love and being content, lost love and sadness, or anything in between; be sure that your lyrics and vocal deliveries feel honest and authentic.

Lyrics that avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably make them happiest. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share, and you'll get 100% of the Writer's share.

INDIE POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a successful Marketing/Branding Company that’s building a catalog and pitching to a bunch of ad agencies for placements in TV Commercials!

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the broad, general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references and other acts in the ballpark:

WARNING: The references may include graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"No Sweat" by Jessie Reyez

"Best Friend" by SOFI TUKKER feat. NERVO, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno

"Make It Look Easy" by Danger Twins

Please submit cutting-edge Indie Pop Songs that have an ad-friendly sound and vibe. Super catchy melodies and simple, catchy lyric phrases in the choruses could really help you get their attention. Be sure your vocal performances are confident and well-executed with some distinct Indie flare. Any and all software sounds or samples you utilize should sound modern and high-quality (nothing dated, please). They want positive, fun, emotionally upbeat Songs that will make consumers feel good about buying the product being advertised.

Although they didn’t request any specific lyric themes, positive, feel-good lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis with the client. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener.

Country

Return to List of Categories

MODERN, YOUTHFUL COUNTRY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Top Notch, EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company with a very long list of awesome placements in TV, Film, and Commercials.

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

"Just the Way" by Parmalee & Blanco Brown

"wAnt me back" by Lindsey Ell

"Cool Again" by Kane Brown

Give them well-produced, current-sounding Country Songs with a ton of mainstream appeal. Your submissions should have super solid melodies, great rhythms, and singalong choruses with well-crafted lyrics. Since they're looking for material that's youthful and modern, we think a healthy dose of modern ear-candy and some Pop-leaning beats could be a good idea for this pitch. Well-executed vocals with lots of Country attitude are essential for this pitch. If you could imagine a teenager blasting your Songs while they're driving around town in their pickup truck, you might be onto something!

Your lyric themes can vary, but avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, and brands is commonly a good idea for Film and TV music. It might also be a good idea to have lyrics that don't rely on a lot of visual details and a specific story like you'd typically find in Country songs on the record side of the industry. Film and TV music supervisors prefer more general, universal lyrics. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share, and you'll get 100% of the Writer's share. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. Since this is an Exclusive deal, please be sure your material is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

CONTEMPORARY, “TRADITIONAL-Leaning” COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a well-known Music Row Publisher for a recently signed, up-and-coming Artist who’s working on his debut album!

NOTE: We previously ran a similar request as TAXI Listing #S200427CT, but the Label wants to hear MORE material. If you submitted to listing #S200427CT, please send different material this time around.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Song request is for a unique artist with a one-of-a-kind sound. Although the references are dated, the client says that they’re looking for Contemporary Songs that have a "2020 Waylon Jennings swagger with the old soul of a Don Williams."

Please listen to the references below to get a general idea of the style they're looking for:

"Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" by Waylon Jennings

"Tulsa Time" by Don Williams

Please submit one-of-a-kind Country Songs that will get this artist and the Record Label excited about recording them! Your submissions should marry the swagger of Waylon Jennings with Don William's soulful vibe. We think traditional Country instruments paired with modern arrangements and songwriting sensibilities could be a winning combination! Be sure that your songwriting fires on all cylinders with well-crafted melodies, memorable choruses, and excellent lyrics.

NOTE: Your submissions can be stripped-down demos or full productions as long as your material is competitive with writers on the Row.

Your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Publisher on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, September 25th, 2020.  TAXI # S200925CN

Electronic

Return to List of Categories

QUIRKY ELECTRONICA/SYNTH POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an extremely active Music Licensing Company with a really long track record of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic range of the following references we got directly from them:

"Over And Over" by Hot Chip

"You and I" by Caribou

Send them cool, quirky Electronica/Synth Pop Songs with unique synth parts, inventive beats, and intriguing melodies. Your submissions should have great production and well-performed vocals with a distinct vibe and sound. Be sure that the electronic elements or samples you use sound super current – nothing dated will work for this pitch!

TAXI Tip: We think that you can get creative with your submissions, but don't get so crazy with your arrangements that they could distract from what's happening on the screen. They want quirky, but not so left-of-field that your Songs wouldn't work for Film and TV placements.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing to the Licensing Company and Music Supervisors. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal. This Music Library splits ALL sync fees 50/50 with you. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please do not send material for this pitch that has already been signed to other libraries or catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020. TAXI # S201014SP

Lots of HARD EDM SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a U.K. Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

The client is looking for a whole bunch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following examples we got directly from the client:

"Standing in the Way of Control" by Gossip (Soulwax Remix)

"Girl Crush" by Boys Noize feat. Rico Nasty

"Electric Feel" by MGMT (Justice Remix)

NOTE: The client does NOT want to hear any Dubstep for this request.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company has a high bar and they tend to gravitate toward music that “sounds like releasable commercial Songs” rather than material that sounds like it came from a "typical music library." Also, this company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked with libraries and licensing companies in the past, and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Please submit well-produced Hard EDM Songs equipped with a ton of fist-pumping energy, gritty synths and bass, and cool melodies. Any electronic sounds or samples you use should super up-to-date. Be sure your vocals are well-performed and add to the cool, gutsy vibe of your tracks.

TAXI Tip: This is a case where you can include longer intros in your Songs – EDM tracks of this kind typically build tension with long intros before the main vocal lines come in.

Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands could give you an added edge. Do not copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. You'll keep 100% of the Writer's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, September 26th, 2020.  TAXI # S200926HD

Gospel

Return to List of Categories

CONTEMPORARY GOSPEL/SPIRITUAL-Flavored SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with a GREAT track record of placements in Film and TV!

They’re looking for quite a few Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Glory" by Common & John Legend

"Stand Up" by Cynthia Erivo

"Rise Up" by Andra Day

Please send them outstanding modern Gospel/Spiritual-flavored Songs that embody an inspiring, soulful vibe and sound. Your submissions should have stirring melodies, excellent choruses, and really well-crafted lyrics. Stripped-down arrangements with just piano and vocals or more filled-out productions could both work for this pitch. Whichever approach you decide to take, be sure that your production is polished and has a ton of authentic heart and soul. Honest, heartfelt vocal deliveries (sung, rapped, or both) could put the cherry on top. Imagine the type of music you might hear over a civil rights protest scene in a movie – that's what they're looking for!

Lyric Tip: Although they didn't request any specific lyric themes, we think the following ideas might be a great place to start (we encourage you to come up with some of your own too!) "Overcoming," "Rise Up," "Marching Together," "Freedom," "We're in this together," etc., etc., etc. Our observation is that songs that don't heavily rely on religious lyrics tend to do better in this genre, because there are more scenes they could work for.

Avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics as it will make your Songs more “sync-able.” Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, October 13th, 2020.  TAXI # S201013GS

Hard to Classify/Specialty/Novelty

Return to List of Categories

EPIC, TRAILER-Style COVERS of Well-Known SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a hard-working Music Library that’s always landing placements in TV Shows, Film projects, and Movie Trailers!

They’re looking for renditions of well-known songs that could fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the references we got directly from them:

"Something In The Way" (Nirvana) Cover by Samuel Kim

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" (Nirvana) Cover by Think Up Anger feat. Malia J.

"The Final Countdown" (Europe) Cover by Damned Anthem

Please submit reimagined Covers of well-known Songs that fire on all cylinders from start to finish. Your submissions should evoke a similar epic vibe in the general ballpark of the references. We think adding some orchestral, rock, and electronic elements could amp up the larger-than-life sound of your Covers. Any and all software instruments or samples you use should sound current, fresh, and not dated, obviously quantized, or MIDI-Driven. Be sure to stay as close to the original lyrics and melodies as possible so the roots of the Songs are recognizable. Compelling vocal performances with strong, expressive deliveries are absolutely key for this request!

TAXI Tip: We think that some cool sound-design elements like crashes, bangs, risers, etc. might add to the "epic" factor of your submissions! You can also consider doing things like taking a song that was uptempo in its original form and slowing it down... or the opposite! Get creative and change it up!

Broadcast quality is needed.

This Library offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 Deal. You’ll get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s Share. You’ll keep 100% of the original copyright and master recording. You must own or control the Master and Copyright to submit to this pitch. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Someone from the Publishing Company may screen some or all of the submissions. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, October 1st, 2020.  TAXI # S201001CV

Indie/Alternative

Return to List of Categories

Several ANTHEMIC INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a successful Music Library with International Distribution and a great list of TV, Film, and Commercial placements.

This company is looking for a bunch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of (but not limited to) these references:

“Start a War” by Klergy & Valerie Broussard (starting at 1:55)

“HEY CHILD ” by X Ambassadors

"Believer" by Imagine Dragons

Send them top-notch Indie Rock Songs that would feel right at home in a promotion for an MMA fight or a sports recap video! Your submissions should have bombastic rhythms, memorable choruses, and well-performed vocals with a ton of attitude. We think polished, grade-A production with typical Rock-band instrumentation and some cool, modern ear-candy could set you ahead of the pack for this pitch. If you're using any software instrumentation or sounds, make sure they don't sound dated, stiff, MIDI-driven, or over-quantized. The more your submissions sound like they're performed by real bands, the better!

Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. Any sync fees will be split 50/50 between you and the Company. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

A Wide Range of MODERN INDIE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals is needed by a super well-connected Publisher for placements on a new Teen Drama TV Show!

They're looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"So Hot You're Hurting My Feelings" by Caroline Polachek

"Me & You Together Song" by The 1975

"It's A Trip!" by Joywave

Give them cool, well-produced Songs that have a decidedly Indie vibe and sound. Since these are for a Teen Drama show, think of the type of music you would hear on shows like Riverdale, Outer Banks, or Love, Victor, and you could be onto something. Your submissions should have catchy melodies, captivating choruses, and polished, current-sounding productions. Strong vocals with an inherently "Indie" style might catch the Company's ear.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced artist/acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal with a 2-year reversion (they will also consider NON-Exclusive Deals). Sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. If you’re inclined to sign an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material that’s already signed with other Companies, Catalogs, or Publishing or Administration deals, including any online distribution companies such as DistroKid, TuneCore, or CD Baby. Using those companies is totally fine for the distribution of your music, but the publishing or admin. (monetization) deals can preclude you from entering into publishing deals with most other companies! You need to own or control your Copyright and Master Recordings.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Time permitting, someone from the Publishing Company may screen some or all of the submissions. Your submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, October 4th, 2020.  TAXI # S201004ND

MODERN INDIE POP ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Film/TV Music Publishing Company.

NOTE: This Company is NOT looking for “typical library music.” They’re looking for music that's from real, working artists or bands. They want artists that are not working with a ton of other companies at the moment so they can work closely with them.

Please listen to the following references (we got directly from them) to get an idea of what might get this Company interested in your work:

"Strangers" by Sigrid

"Peach" by Broods

"everything i wanted" by Billie Eilish

Please submit Indie Pop Songs that have a cool "Indie" aesthetic and state-of-the-art production style. Your submissions should have innovative melodies, catchy choruses, and great lyrics. Any electronic instrumentation or elements you use must sound modern and current (not dated). Having a distinctive Indie vocal sound and identity could put the cherry on top!

Note: This Company is looking for authentic artists that they can pitch to sync opportunities, so they’re going to want to know more about you in the form of a bio. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an authentic Artist or Band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to do an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material that’s already signed with any other libraries or publishers, and that includes "monetization deals" you might have signed with online distributors – read the fine print. You must own or control your Masters and Compositions to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI A&R Screener who works closely with the Company. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, October 12th, 2020.

Several ANTHEMIC, INSPIRING ROCK INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a NEW Music Library started by a successful Editor for Major TV shows that loves the music they've been getting from TAXI Members!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Dispatch Listing #D200912PK, but they want to hear MORE material. If you submitted to listing #D200912PK, please send different material this time around.

Note: This company has already signed music from dozens of TAXI members, and they need a lot more to fill up their catalog!

Because this is a new company, they're essentially building their full stash of Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumentals (and/or Cues) that could fit on a playlist with the references below:

“Orphans” by Coldplay

“Walk Me Home” by P!nk

“I Bet My Life” by Imagine Dragons

Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals (and/or Cues) only for this pitch.

Please submit Rock Instrumentals (or Cues) that have an inspiring, anthemic vibe and feel. Your submissions should have engaging rhythms, soaring melodies, and polished production with typical Rock-band instrumentation. We think it might be a good idea to add some contemporary-sounding ear candy to help your Instrumentals/Cues really pop. If your pieces make listeners feel uplifted and inspired, you could be headed in the right direction!

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long for Instrumentals and roughly 90 seconds to 2 minutes for Cues, give or take. Non-Faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues as you'd like, online or per CD.

Match.com Commercial

Apple Commercial

Uber Commercial

Publix Commercial

Your arrangements can be simpler, Piano-only Cues, or you can add more instrumentation to create fuller productions – just be sure that Piano is the focal point.

They want Cues that can be emotionally uplifting to viewers – give them that, and you could be on the right track!

TAXI Tip: Avoid getting too fancy or overly complicated with your Cues! They're not looking for the next Mozart or Rachmaninoff – they're looking for music that will underscore the mood of whatever scene they're in without distracting from what's happening on-screen. Less is usually more!

Submissions should be about  45 to 90 seconds long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned endings will work best. Please do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

WARNING: The references may include graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"We Paid" by Lil Baby & 42 Dugg

"For The Night" by Pop Smoke feat. Lil Baby & DaBaby

"Laugh Now Cry Later" by Drake

Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumental Cues only for this pitch.

Send them current-sounding Instrumental Cues that exude the vibe and attitude of today's Hip-Hop scene. Your submissions should have great beats and super catchy hooks. Shiny, state-of-the-art production with a healthy dose of modern ear candy could help you stand out, as well. Any and all software sounds or samples you use should be fresh and cutting-edge (nothing dated, please).

All submissions should be at about 2 minutes long (give or take). Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best. Please do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for overall feel, texture, and tone. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

A Wide Range of Styles of ORCHESTRAL/HYBRID INSTRUMENTAL CUES is needed by an EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company with a long and impressive list of great placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

They’re on the hunt for a range of Instrumental Cues in various styles. Here are some examples, but you don't have to be in the stylistic ballpark of these - they're just some ideas to get your gears turning:

"Dream Is Collapsing" by Han Zimmer

"This Is How It Ends" by Sebastian Böhm

"We Are Gods" by Audiomachine

"Origins of A Nebula" by Mattia Turzo

Valhalla | Officiel Trailer I 2019 (Starting at 0:33)

Give them top-notch Instrumental Cues that seamlessly combine Orchestral Instrumentation with Electronic and/or Rock elements. Craft your submissions around a singular motif and mood and layer instrumentation in and out as they progress to create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics. Any and all software sounds or samples you use should sound high-quality and not dated, obviously quantized, or MIDI-driven.

Remember, you're not trying to score an entire scene with changing moods or ideas. Imagine a music supervisor (for instance) looking for a Cue that would work in a scene about the long ride home from a cemetery after a funeral. It would be sad all the way through, right? It wouldn't become anthemic or happy because the scene probably wouldn't change to that mood. Even if it did, you wouldn't know at what point in the scene that happened, so you couldn't effectively compose to the timing of that change. No matter what your style or mood, stick to one thing throughout!

TAXI Tip: We think adding some cool sound-design elements like crashes, bangs, risers, etc. to your Cues might help them stick out and add to their "hybrid" aesthetic!

All submissions should be at about 2 minutes long (give or take). Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best. Please do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for overall feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share, and you'll get 100% of the Writer's share. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. Since this is an Exclusive deal, please be sure your material is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs.

All submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Lots of ELECTRONIC-Based DRAMEDY INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Music Library with great Reality TV placements.

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (#D200805CC), but the Licensing Company didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #D200805CC, please send in different material this time around.

NOTE: They’re open to hearing a range of Uruguayan styles including (but NOT limited to): Uruguayan Tango, Candombe, Murga, Milonga, etc., etc., etc.

“Candombe Del Mucho Palo” by Jorge Do Prado

“Milonga Del 900” by Francisco Canaro

Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues only.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Please submit original Uruguayan Instrumentals (or Cues) that have a traditional sound and feel. Your submissions should have generally similar authentic instruments, rhythms, and melodies heard in the references above. We think incorporating Candombe drums, hornpipes, or flutes (traditional Uruguayan instruments) into your submissions could really help you catch the Company's ear! You can read more about Uruguayan music by clicking here.

IMPORTANT NOTE FROM THE CLIENT: The client is NOT interested in hearing pre-made loops or synthetic, "in-the-box"-sounding Instruments. Your submissions must sound and feel like the real deal. Authentic performances and instrumentation are the key to nailing this request! We don’t recommend using virtual instruments for this pitch unless you are extremely masterful and your virtual instruments sound indistinguishable from the real thing.

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long for Instrumentals and roughly 90 seconds to 2 minutes for Cues, give or take. Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best for this request.

INSPIRING, MODERN ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Successful Publisher with an awesome track record of really BIG placements in TV Commercials!

"Wasting Time" by The Mowgli's

"Break the Rules" by Unsecret feat. Anna Mae

"The Champion" by The Score

Please submit current-sounding Rock Songs that could make the viewers feel unstoppable. Your submissions should have engaging melodies, soaring choruses, energetic rhythms, and standard Rock-band instrumentation with awesome guitar tones.

Well-executed, strong vocals are essential for this pitch if you want to get this Publisher excited about your tracks. Songs that are positive, upbeat, and make the listener feel good about the product in the commercial are the order of the day!

TAXI Tip: Per the client, “please try not to rely solely upon loops.” Get creative with your programming, and feel free to push the boundaries.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing to this Music Publisher. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use the examples only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal with a 2-year reversion. If they do not acquire at least $1,000 in sync revenue from your track within the term, you can get your rights back. Pretty sweet! Any sync licensing fees are split 50/50. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share.

ORIGINAL 1960s-Style ROCK PROTEST SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the Publishing division of a well-known Label for Film and TV placements.

They’re looking for original Songs in All Tempos that could be found on a playlist with the following references (which we got from the client):

"Street Fighting Man" by The Rolling Stones

"Volunteers" by Jefferson Airplane

"Ohio" by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

"Revolution" by The Beatles

NOTE: This Record Label would prefer to hear original vintage pieces that actually date back to the 1960s, and the sound quality must be reasonably good. They will also consider recent recordings; however, they must authentically sound like they were recorded around the same time as the references. They’re not looking for in-the-box Pro Tools Projects that sound like they were recorded recently. They want to hear a Raw and Real performance by authentic musicians. Submissions CANNOT sound modern, clean, and/or computer-processed.

Send them great Rock Songs that capture the attitude and feel of protest music during the '60s. Your submissions should have well-crafted lyrics, unforgettable choruses, and authentic '60s Rock-band instrumentation. Top-notch, honest, and passionate vocal deliveries might really get this Publisher excited about your tracks!

LYRIC Tip: Your lyrics need to be consistent with themes commonly heard in protest Songs during these eras. Lyrics with concepts about (but not limited to): anti-war, protest/protesting, peace, the need for change, injustice, fighting the power, and standing up for your rights should help you nail this request! Be sure to also keep your lyrics relevant to the '60s (no talk of cell phones, internet, etc.).

Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity would be optimal, but we (and the company requesting music) realize that for this type of song you might need to include some specifics. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality will work just fine. The deal points will be negotiated directly with the Publisher on a song-by-song basis.

Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener who has a strong relationship with the Record Label Owner. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, October 4th, 2020.  TAXI # S201004PT

EDGY ROCK BANDS with some Hip-Hop Influence and Male Vocals are needed by the CEO of a hard-working Indie Record Label that’s looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its eclectic roster.

NOTE: Due to the unique nature of this request, we didn't include references as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. Imagine what a modern version of Nickleback, Stone Temple Pilots or Filter would sound like if Eminem or the Beastie Boys fronted it. Those are the type of acts they’re looking to hear!

Quoting the Label's CEO: "We’re looking for something that is a little left-of-center or wants to go in that direction. There’s a lot of range with this. The sound does not have to specifically be of those artists, as the quality of the Songs is most important.”

Please send Rock Songs with vocals that are influenced by artists in the stylistic wheelhouse of Eminem and/or the Beastie Boys but still highlight your individual, one-of-a-kind sound! Your submissions should have an undeniable edginess to them accompanied by engaging rhythms, solid musicianship, authentic-sounding Rock band instrumentation. Be sure to have excellent vocals that exude attitude and swagger!

Demos are okay to submit, as long as your recording quality is good enough to represent your Songs well. You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fan base, and impressive sales or streaming figures in your bio, although it is not a requirement. While the client would prefer that the act is SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-based, it's not a necessity. If you live someplace else, but you have an amazing sound and the Songs to back it up, they would still like to hear from you!

Please submit TWO or THREE Songs to show depth in your catalog, online or per CD; and include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, October 12th, 2020.  TAXI # S201012BB

Your lyric themes can vary, but avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity is commonly a good idea for Film and TV music.

"July" by Noah Cyrus feat. Leon Bridges

Captivating melodies, great rhythms, and memorable choruses are all ingredients that will make your submissions stand out. Your production should be well-executed and competitive with other artists in the genre. We suggest sticking to mostly acoustic-based instrumentation (Guitar, Piano, etc.), but some modern ear candy sprinkled in here and there could give your tracks more mainstream appeal. Be sure that any and all software sounds or samples you use sound fresh and modern and not dated, stiff, or obviously MIDI-driven. Heartfelt, well-performed vocals could give you an edge, as well!

Earnest, inviting vocals with an Indie-style delivery might put the cherry on top!

TAXI Tip: If you want a more in-depth look at how to get great Indie-style vocals, check out this episode of TAXI TV!

Vintage

Return to List of Categories

Original, VINTAGE MAINSTREAM ROCK SONGS with Female Vocals that were Recorded before 1995 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

"I Love Rock 'N Roll" by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

"Our Lips Are Sealed" by GoGos

"Call Me" by Blondie

"Cherry Bomb" by The Runaways

"Dreams" by The Cranberries

"Barracuda" by Heart

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality, and you can submit old masters OR old demos.

Quoting the Publisher: "We're looking for some female-fronted mainstream rock. We're not looking for Riot Grrrl-type music, more radio rock."

Send them top-notch, female-fronted Vintage Rock Songs that would've felt at home on the radio the year they were recorded. As the Publisher said, they're not looking for super heavy, punky music – they're looking for stuff with mainstream appeal. Your submissions should have era-appropriate Rock-band instrumentation and super solid melodies, choruses, and lyrics. We think well-performed, expressive vocals could really get this Publisher excited about your tunes, as well!

Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than great demo recordings! This Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period. This is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and Feature Films when music from a specific time period is needed.

The Company pays you upfront for the Master Rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization. Win-win! This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000 to $15,000 (or more!). Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the Songs signed by the Publisher.

Make sure your Songs were actually recorded before 1995, otherwise this company cannot use them! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only if the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your Songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the Copyright and Master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.
