Return to List of Categories

ROMANTIC DUETS with Male and Female Vocals are needed by a really impressive Music Licensing Company with a very long list of great Film, TV, and Commercial placements!

Please submit Duets in the following genres: Adult Contemporary, Pop, Singer/Songwriter, and R&B.

This Company is searching for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that have the general style and vibe of the following references and others in the same wheelhouse:

"Perfect Duet" by Ed Sheeran & Beyoncé

"U Move, I Move" by John Legend feat. Jhené Aiko

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

"Best Part" by H.E.R. feat. Daniel Caesar

Please send heartfelt Duets that could enhance the mood of a romantic scene in a TV show. Captivating melodies, well-crafted lyrics, and memorable choruses are all required for this pitch. We think stripped-down performances and more filled-out arrangements could both work for this pitch. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production should be on the same general playing field as the references and other artists like them. Any and all software sounds or samples you use should be high-quality and modern, as well. Well-performed, compelling vocals could help you seal the deal with this Company!

Lyrics that avoid specific references to names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs more appealing. 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 deal, with a 50/50 split on applicable sync fees. The Publisher will get 50% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share and 50% of the Publisher’s share as well. Sweet deal! 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. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

A Bunch of MODERN, HEARTFELT ADULT CONTEMPORARY BALLADS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by a Successful Record Producer for several (up to) $5,000 placements for some notable artists in the Chinese market!

This Producer is looking for lots of Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

"Hello" by Adele

"Perfect" by Ed Sheeran

"Shallow" by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper

"All of Me" by John Legend

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your lyrics DO NOT need to be in Chinese. Lyrics in English are fine. If your Songs are selected, your lyrics will be translated into the appropriate language. You will most likely keep the majority of your publishing, but you may need to share a percentage with the Chinese lyricist who translates your lyrics from English.

Please send top-tier, current-sounding Adult Contemporary Ballads that are melodically and emotionally engaging, with captivating melodies, soaring choruses, and honest, well-composed lyrics. Stripped-down performances or more filled-out/developed arrangements could both work for this pitch. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production should be polished and generally competitive with the references. If you're planning on using any software sounds or samples, they need to be high-quality and modern – nothing dated will work, here. Heartfelt, well-executed vocals could help you seal the deal with this producer!

The estimated songwriter/producer's creative fee is (up to) $5,000 per placement. You can potentially earn an additional fee if they choose to keep your productions "as-is," and they buy entire Songs from you!

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.

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Producer on a Song-by-Song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD; include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Tuesday, March 9th, 2021.  TAXI # S210309AC

"New New" by Club Yoko

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!

Please send top-notch Indie Pop/Rock Songs that showcase your ability to create music that would feel right at home in TV commercials. Your sound can lean more towards the Pop or Rock sides of the spectrum. No matter your approach, your Songs should have solid melodies, super catchy hooks, and lots of fun energy. Please be sure that your production and any software sounds or samples you use are high-quality and modern, as well. Confident, well-performed vocals paired with impactful lyrics could help you seal the deal with this Publisher!

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 references in any way, shape, or form. Use the example only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Americana

Return to List of Categories

"Twinkle Twinkle" by Margo Price

"What a Drag" by Nathaniel Rateliff

"Dylan Thomas" by Better Oblivion Community Center

Please send top-notch Songs that push the boundaries of the Americana genre and showcase your unique sound and style. Your submissions should have great rhythms, compelling melodies, and great musicianship. We think typical organic-based Americana instrumentation will be your best bet for this request. Innovative, well-crafted lyrics paired with honest, well-executed vocals could help get this Label excited about your music!

NOTE: This Label is NOT looking for straight Country or old-school Americana acts. They're looking for cool artists that have a definitive Alternative vibe and sound. Listen closely to the references to understand what we mean.

TAXI Tip: We recommend that you submit at least THREE SONGS per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

You’d be wise to highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have. If you’re a new artist or band and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the Songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. 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.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. 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 Thursday, March 18th, 2021.  TAXI # S210318AA

"We Praise You" by Matt Redman feat. Brandon Lake

"The Blessing" by Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, & Elevation Worship

Please send well-written Praise & Worship Songs with compelling melodies, instantly memorable choruses, and solid arrangements. Instrumentation that's generally similar to the references and other artists like them will work best. Please be sure that any software sounds or samples you use are high-quality and modern. Passionate, well-performed vocals paired with heartfelt, well-crafted lyrics could be the cherry on top.

TAXI Tip: Since this Label wants Songs that could work in a corporate worship setting, your melodies, lyrics, and rhythms should be memorable and easy to sing along with. Having really strong, anthemic bridge sections is also a really big plus for these kinds of Songs – listen closely to the references to see what we mean by that!

Live recordings are okay to submit for this request, but they need to be extremely polished and well-mixed. Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. 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.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD, and include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, March 25th, 2021. TAXI # S210325WS

Songs with vocals throughout and Songs with limited lyrics (like the 3rd reference) are both okay to submit for this request.

Quoting the Company: "We're looking for EDM Songs that are sexy, sophisticated, luxurious, and a bit mysterious with lush beats and cool energy. Think sexy party music. Songs that have an anthemic-ish feel or big rave upbuilds are okay, but not required. Energy level is important – the Songs need to have movement but still be subtle. We are not looking for tracks with over-the-top House music-type energy."

Please submit sophisticated-sounding EDM Songs with pumping beats, great melodies, catchy hooks, and lots of cool, sexy energy. Slick production featuring state-of-the-art software sounds and samples is a must for this pitch, as well. Compelling, well-executed vocals could help you seal the deal with this Company!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this client. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The Licensing Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. 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. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Hard to Classify/Specialty/Novelty

Return to List of Categories

A Wide Range of SONGS with Lyrics about "Going Crazy" in ALL GENRES with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a high-quality, boutique-sized Music Licensing Company that’s been signing quite a bit of music from TAXI members lately!

We’re not giving references for this request, as we think they may be too limiting. Genre-wise, we think you’d be wise to go with popular genres like Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, R&B, Folk, Pop, Country, Rock, Hip-Hop, Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Soul, etc. You’d be smart to avoid genres that aren’t relatable to a wide audience.

This Company is open to hearing Songs in All Tempos.

Here are some key concepts, keywords, ideas, and phrases we got from the Company to get your creative gears turning, but please don’t limit yourself to just these! We encourage you to come up with some of your own: going crazy, going nuts, losing my mind, feeling crazy, going out of my mind, driving me crazy, losing it, sanity, insane, insanity, crazy people, craziness, batty, bonkers, angst-ridden, bored, boredom.

Quoting the Company: "We're open to hearing Songs in any mood, but we DON'T want to hear anything overly focused on sadness/depression/feeling blue. We'll listen to romantic-driven crazy, but we're ideally looking for broader situations – not just romantic."

Please submit well-produced Songs with great melodies and well-crafted lyrics about "going crazy." Stripped-down arrangements or more filled-out, full-blown productions could both work for this pitch depending on which genres you choose to submit. Whichever approach you decide to take, be sure that your production is polished and competitive with other artists in that genre. Strong vocals with excellent, genre-appropriate deliveries could set you ahead of the pack!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this client. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The Licensing Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. 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. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Lots of ORIGINAL, TRADITIONAL TURKISH INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a U.K. Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV!

TAXI Tip: Want to be a standout with little competition in a particular genre in this company's catalog? Here's your chance! Less competition = More possible placements!

This Company is searching for Instrumentals/Cues in All Tempos in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Aman Karpouz Kestim Yiyen Yok (Ankara)" by Kemal Tanriverdi

"Agri Dagindan Uctum" by Turku

"Muğla Zeybeği" by Nihat Jelebioghlou (from 2:10)

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 Turkish Instrumentals/Cues that have a traditional sound and feel. Your submissions should have top-notch, authentic-sounding rhythms, instrumentation, arrangements, and melodies. We think incorporating the TamburNey, Kemenche, or other traditional Turkish instruments could make your pieces sound more like the real deal.

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. If you're from this region and grew up playing this type of music, that's a plus!

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 for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced examples 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 Instrumentals (or Cues) you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. 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 Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Imagine the type of music you might hear in a Crime Drama TV show – that's what this Company wants!

Submissions should be about 1 to 2 minutes long, give or take, and have non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

YOUTHFUL, CURRENT-Sounding POP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal for placements in a range of Promos, Advertisements, and TV Programming aimed at a younger audience.

This is a catalog you want to be in! Please listen to the following examples the Library gave us to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need:

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Company: "We would like to hear pieces that are clearly on the POP side of things. Having some funky, soulful, etc. influence is cool, but we don't want to hear 'authentic 70s funk' or the like."

Please submit top-notch Pop Instrumentals with a youthful, stylish vibe and sound. Slick synths, fun beats, and polished production featuring state-of-the-art software and sounds are essential for this pitch. You'd be wise to craft your Cues around a singular mood and motif, and layer instrumentation in and out to create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics. This Library looking for pieces that have a generally similar vibe and sound to Pop music that's on the charts right now – give them that!

TAXI Tip: Although they're looking for youthful music, they do NOT want Cues that are childish. Think fun, fresh, and upbeat – not nursery rhymes!

All submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Good edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are required. 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.

NOTE: This company is NOT interested in composers that turn in 1 or 2 tracks every couple of months, they want composers who have experience writing full albums in this genre. They're only interested in signing material from composers who have worked with music libraries and music licensing companies in the past, and understand how those deals work. If you don't understand the drill on library deals, they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

This Music Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal with a cool twist.  You’ll keep 50% of all gross income generated by your music, plus you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share income generated by your PRO. In other words, if the company licenses your music under a blanket deal, you’ll get income. If they license it for a YouTube video, you’ll get income. Not all music libraries pay you for things like that! The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share.

Because this is an Exclusive deal, the music you submit for this pitch cannot already be signed with other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Composition rights. Please send as many Instrumental Cues 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 Sunday, March 14th, 2021.  TAXI # S210314PC

FOLK-Influenced INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal and has tons of credits in Big Films, Countless TV Shows, and Commercials!

This is a catalog you want to be in! Please listen to this example the library gave us to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need:

Instrumental Example

Quoting the Library: "We want to hear Cues that build throughout and have acoustic, organic arrangements with Folk-influenced chord structures and style. We want music that's clearly warm and positive, but doesn't feel too corporate. Here are the moods we're after: wholesome, warm, uplifting, positive, inspiring."

Please send well-produced, wholesome Folk-influenced Instrumental Cues with a positive and uplifting sound and style. Organic-based instrumentation with some subtle, high-quality synth pads layered in should suit your submissions well. If you're planning on using any virtual instruments to replace organic ones, they need to be top-notch and modern – nothing dated will work, here. Craft your Cues around one clear motif and mood, and create a sense of forward movement and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. If your pieces sound like they could be playing under a positive, uplifting scene on the Hallmark channel, you could have what this awesome music library is looking for.

TAXI Tip: You'd be wise to stick with simpler melodic ideas without any super prominent leads so your Cues won't be distracting under dialog.

All submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Good edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are required. Do NOT copy the reference in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

INSPIRING, TV PROMO-Friendly ORCHESTRAL HYBRID TRAILER-Style INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal for placements in Commercial Advertisements for Healthcare and Well-being-related Food or Personal Care Products.

This is a catalog you want to be in! Please listen to the following examples the library gave us to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need:

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Library: "We're looking for Trailer Cues, but not 'huge cinematic Cues,' rather 'underscore-friendly Trailer Cues for TV promos.' The theme/mood we're looking for is 'Arise From Ashes.' We'd like to hear music with a hybrid approach; not too classical-sounding, nor getting into huge, bombastic, warfare-cue-style hybrid. The Cues should start very subdued, then develop into an epic resolution, but NOT action or battle in mood/style. Imagine scenes in which a character needs to find the way through a challenge, come up with a solution, and finally finds it – all leading to a big resolution."

Send this library top-notch, inspiring Instrumental Cues that feature Orchestral Hybrid instrumentation generally similar to the references. Your production should be polished and feature high-quality software sounds and samples. Stick to a singular mood and motif throughout your pieces so they remain cohesive, and build throughout by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress.

NOTE: Cues that follow a "three-act" Trailer structure or typical Instrumental Cue structure are both okay to submit for this pitch.

All submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Good edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are required. 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.

This Library is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"positions" by Ariana Grande

"Anyone" by Justin Bieber

"Therefore I am" by Billie Eilish

NOTE: This Library is NOT interested in songwriters that turn in 1 or 2 tracks every couple of months. They want songwriters they can work closely with. This is a great opportunity to build an ongoing relationship.

Please submit well-written, modern Pop Songs that might feel at home at the top of the Billboard Pop Chart! Solid melodies, instantly memorable choruses, and polished production are essential for this pitch. Please be sure that any software sounds or samples you use are modern and high-quality, as well. Confident, well-performed vocals paired with impactful lyrics could be the cherry on top.

Your Songs need to be 2 to 3 minutes in length (it's fine to go a bit longer). Please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity. 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.

RE-IMAGINED COVERS of BEATLES SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Publisher for targeted placements in Television, Advertising, and Film!

Genre-wise, we think you’d be wise to create covers in popular genres like Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Jazz, R&B, Indie Folk, Pop, Country, Rock, Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Soul, etc. You’d be smart to avoid genres that aren’t relatable to a wide audience.

This publisher is eagerly searching for COVER SONGS that could fit on a playlist with the following references:

"Across the Universe" cover by Fiona Apple

"Happiness Is A Warm Gun" cover by The Breeders

"Hey Jude" cover by Wilson Pickett

"Something" by Billie Eilish

"Drive My Car" cover by The Donnas

Please send top-notch re-imagined Beatles Cover Songs that are engaging from start to finish. We think both stripped-down performances and more filled-out arrangements could work for this request. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production and arrangements should be polished and high-quality. If you're planning on using software sounds or samples to replace organic instruments, they need to sound like the real thing and can't be dated or obviously MIDI-driven. Any other software sounds and samples you use should be modern and top-quality, as well. Captivating, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

TAXI Tip: We recommend sticking as close to the original songs' melodies and lyrics so they're easily recognizable to listeners! Stylistically, you can try some different approaches like slowing down a fast song, going faster on a slow one, take an edgy song and try a softer, dreamier approach... you get the idea!

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your music used during that term, you can get your rights back. Since this company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control your Master recordings. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener.

TAXI Tip: This Producer/Music Supervisor is NOT looking for heavy '90s to 2000's Pop Punk tracks à la blink 182, Green Day, etc. They want stuff that's fun, upbeat, youthful, and on the lighter side of Pop Punk with a much more Pop-driven, mainstream sensibility. Take a listen to the references to understand what we mean.

Please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. Do NOT copy the referenced songs or artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

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. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. NO DEADLINE EXTENSIONS for this request. Sorry folks, but we're on an extremely tight deadline, so please don't ask!  Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, March 21st, 2021. TAXI # S210321HH

This awesome Company is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"1, 2, Many” by Luke Combs feat. Brooks and Dunn

"End of the Line” by Travelling Wilburys

“Take It Easy” by Eagles

Please submit top-of-the-line Country Rock Songs with a timeless sound and feel. Your submissions should have great rhythms, catchy melodies, and instantly memorable choruses. Old-school-style Country Rock Songs (like the Travelling Wilburys and Eagles references) and modern takes (like the Luke Combs reference) could both work for this pitch. Whichever approach you decide to take, we think traditional Country instrumentation like kicking drums and twangy guitars will suit your submissions best. Well-performed vocals with Country flair could help you seal the deal!

TAXI Tip: Authentic-sounding performances are key for nailing this request; so if you're planning on using any virtual instruments, be sure that they don't sound low-quality, stiff, or obviously MIDI-driven. The more your Songs sound like they're being performed by real musicians playing real instruments, the better!

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 Label is looking for original Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"My Best Friend's Girl" by The Cars

"One Way Or Another" by Blondie

"What I Like About You" by The Romantics

"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar

You can submit recently recorded Songs in the general production style of the references; or, if you’ve got any authentic vintage recordings (recorded back in the day), they would love to hear those as well!

Quoting the Company: "We'd like to hear Songs that are radio-friendly and memorable. We don't want to hear anything that sounds MIDI-driven. Please keep electronic/synthetic elements to a minimum."

Please send top-notch Pop/Rock Songs that sound like they're straight out of the New Wave era in the 1970s and 1980s. Your submissions should have great rhythms, catchy melodies, excellent musicianship, and lots of fun energy. Typical New Wave-style instrumentation will suit your submissions best, and your production should be high-quality. Well-performed, authentic-sounding vocals are required for this pitch.

NOTE: This Label is NOT looking for other genres from the '70s and '80s like Hair Metal, Hard Rock, etc. They ONLY want to hear authentic-sounding New Wave-style Songs!

Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, and brands would be optimal for this pitch. 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. If you're submitting vintage recordings, the sound 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 Label on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened by a TAXI Screener who has a strong relationship with the Record Label Owner.

Please submit top-notch modern Alt-Singer/Songwriter Songs that showcase your ability to captivate an audience.

TAXI Tip: We recommend that you submit at least THREE SONGS per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

You’d be wise to highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have. If you’re a new artist or band and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the Songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

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 between 2000 and 2005, otherwise this company cannot use them! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old.

This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE ADULT CONTEMPORARY/POP SONGS with Female Vocals that were RECORDED between 1995 and 2005 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 they need:

"All By Myself" by Céline Dion

"I Will Love Again" by Lara Fabian

"I'm Alive" by Céline Dion

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

Please submit top-notch Adult Contemporary/Pop Songs that would've felt at home on the charts between 1995 and 2005. Your submissions should have memorable melodies, great choruses, and well-crafted lyrics. Your production and arrangements should be on the same general playing field as the references and other artists like them. Having captivating, well-executed vocals are a must if you want to get this Publisher excited about your Songs!

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 between 1995 and 2005, 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.

A Whole Bunch of ANGSTY ALT-ROCK SONGS with Female Vocals that were RECORDED between 1990 and 1995 are needed by a super well-connected Publisher for a few placements on an upcoming TV project!

NOTE: We previously ran a very similar request as TAXI Listing #S210110FM, but the Publisher didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S210110FM, please send different material this time around.

IMPORTANT: This Company ONLY wants to hear Vintage Recordings that have INSTRUMENTALS available. If you do not have the Instrumental tracks for your Songs (without vocals) on hand, please do not submit to this request.

This Publisher is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo songs; authentic recordings that might fit on a playlist with the following references:

"Only Happy When It Rains" by Garbage

"Down By The Water" by PJ Harvey

"Rock Star" by Hole

While the client is most interested in Angsty Alt Rock Songs that were recorded between 1990 and 1995, they're willing to consider recordings from the latter half of the nineties as well, but only if they are a perfect fit for this request. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s Broadcast Quality! Good demos and master recordings are all of interest to this company!

Your submissions should have solid melodies, killer rhythms, grungy guitar parts, and a healthy dose of chaotic, angsty energy. Well-performed, unapologetic vocals accompanied by defiant lyrics are musts for this pitch, as well.

NOTE: 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. It doesn't have to be super hi-fi, but reasonably good, well-balanced recordings and mixes are needed.

They will need instrumental-only versions of your Songs as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now are the Full Songs with vocals. Please have mix-minus-vocal versions on hand and ready to send at a moment’s notice, if you get a call or email from the Music Publisher. If you don’t have the ability to get your mix-minus-vocal versions in the hands of the Music Publisher within an hour after being contacted, please do NOT submit for this!

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 (PST) on Monday, March 8th, 2021.  TAXI # S210308AF

TRADITIONAL-Sounding WORLD SONGS in a FOREIGN LANGUAGE with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-known Indie Label.

NOTE: Songs can be in languages as wide-ranging as Spanish, Arabic, French, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Hindi, Japanese, etc. Just no English, please! Naturally, the most common languages will be more appealing to the client. Obscure languages from lesser-known countries could be less appealing to the label. Sorry, Liechtenstein!!

We purposely avoided putting references in this request as we felt they could be more misleading or limiting than helpful.

Please submit well-crafted Songs that embody the essence and spirit of the Country/Region/Continent/Culture you choose with authentic-sounding melodies, instrumentation, and arrangements. Submissions can range from solo performances or small ensembles to larger, fuller arrangements. Your production should be clean, clear, and represent your Songs well. Top off your submissions with some compelling, authentic-sounding vocals, and you could have just what this Label is searching for!

TAXI TIP: They’re open to hearing recently recorded Songs AND authentic vintage masters recorded back in the day, as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. We recommend that you submit at least TWO or THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Label. Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD; please include lyrics, photo, 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, March 22nd, 2021.  TAXI # S210322WS
