Adult Contemporary

Return to List of Categories

ADULT CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS and BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s eagerly looking for fresh, new talent to sign.

This Label is on the lookout for Songs that could appeal to fans of the following references:

"stranger" by Hanniou

"From The Jump" by James Arthur & Kelly Clarkson 

"The Older You Get" by Daniel Seavey

Please submit modern Adult Contemporary Songs that showcase your unique sound and vibe! Your submissions should have heartfelt melodies, inviting motifs, and well-crafted lyrics with an honest and vulnerable approach. Instrumentation that's in the general ballpark of the references will work best, such as piano, guitars, drums, bass, etc. Please ensure your productions and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high quality and not dated-sounding. Compelling vocal performances that effectively convey the emotion behind the lyrics are key for this opportunity!

We recommend that you submit TWO or THREE SONGS per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. This is not necessary to land a deal with them, just a suggestion! You’d be wise to highlight any licensing experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have in your bio. All those things can help make you more appealing to the company! 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 are still willing to give you a listen!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your music well. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Record Label on a case-by-case basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include a photo and bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, July 2nd, 2024. TAXI # S240702AC

HIGH-ENERGY POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by BMG for placements in Promotions, Advertising, and other TV Programming.

This company gets some really, really great placements, and lots of them! Please listen to the references they provided for us to get yourself in the general stylistic wheelhouse of what they need:

Song Examples

QUOTING THE CEO OF THE COMPANY: "We need Pop Songs that are energetic, bold, and have a supercharged modern energy. They should have dynamic and striking beats, and be suitable for sports highlights and promotional content. Arrangements with breakdowns, build-ups, catchy motifs, and little rhythmical twists will all help. We're looking for authentic sounds and top-notch production. Full vocal songs OR songs with verses and minimal, repetitive lyrics for the chorus could both work."

"Look at the waveforms of the references - It immediately becomes clear how the various sections are arranged in various intensities (dynamic section, buildup, stab section, full-blast section, etc). If you skip around a bit in these refs, it's clear they are very consistent harmonically. It's the arrangement that provides the development here, not 'new ideas' or taking 'harmonies into other directions'. The reference track 'Giving It My All' is a great example regarding options in the structure. You can literally see it in the waveform from a first glance."

Please submit high-energy Pop Songs with tons of bold, hyped-up energy that would work well for sports highlights and promotional content! Your submissions should have impactful melodies, hard-hitting rhythms, super catchy choruses, powerful vocal performances, modern productions/motifs, and well-written lyrics. Pop instrumentation that's in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the reference Songs (and others like them) will work best for this opportunity. Please be sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are high quality and not dated-sounding.

Though not expressed by the Company, we think lyrical themes that relate to competition, working hard, giving it your all, never giving up, and other similar sentiments could work well here. Lyrics should avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. 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. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: This Publisher will need your Songs' instrumental version, stems, and alternative mixes as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now are the Full Songs, but please have your instrumental version ready to go, and be prepared to create and send over the required alternative mixes and stems promptly if you get a call or email from the Library.

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 Copyright. 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, June 15th, 2024. TAXI # S240615PC

Please submit original, well-crafted Drumline Instrumentals that are rhythmically engaging from start to finish and have tons of energy! Your submissions should have excellent drumline-style instrumentation, sounds, and performances.

All submissions should be about 1.5 to 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, stinger endings are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the reference tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of ANY other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT: This Library really wants to find top-notch Composers – not just people who combine different samples or loops without altering them at all. Cleared sample libraries are okay to use, but any samples or loops you include in your pieces should be altered enough that they're distinguishable from the originals. Basically, if you Shazamed one of your tracks and another artist's song comes up, your music would definitely be disqualified by this Company.

This company gets some really, really great placements, and lots of them! Please listen to the references they provided for us to get yourself in the general stylistic wheelhouse of what they need:

Song Examples

QUOTING THE CEO OF THE COMPANY: "We need infectious Songs with an upbeat rhythm/groove. They should stick with one catchy motif, with varying degrees of intensity in the different sections of the track. Arrangements with breakdowns, build-ups, and little rhythmical twists will all help. Sounds can range from the more modern to a more traditional aesthetic. We're looking for authentic sounds and top-notch production. Full vocal songs or songs with verses and minimal, repetitive lyrics for the chorus (suitable for branding/ads) could both work."

NOTE: This Company sent us some detailed and time-stamped explanations of an arrangement that works well for them. Please use them as a reference to understand the type of structure and layout they are looking for, but make sure you are NOT copying or cloning the reference itself.

For the reference song "Feel the Beat":

0:00 - "Track starts and is consistently building up"

0:35 - "The 'chorus' comes in with a slightly different progression that moves upward, but not into a different direction altogether. Note the motif/harmony stays very consistent."

0:57 - "This break is great as a sync point and makes the track easy to cut for an editor."

1:25 - "Notice the breakdown and how it consistently builds up again."

1:48 - "Another break and great sync point."

1:51 - "Choruses again with a gentle build throughout."

Please submit Pop/Soul Songs that are full of energy, excitement, and good vibes! Your submissions should have catchy and memorable melodies, up-tempo rhythms, infectious grooves, hooky choruses, confident vocal performances, modern productions, and well-written lyrics. Soulful Pop instrumentation that's in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the reference Songs will work best for this opportunity. Please be sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are high quality, and not dated-sounding.

Lyrics should 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 only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: This Publisher will need your Songs' instrumental version, stems, and alternative mixes as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now are the Full Songs, but please have your instrumental version ready to go and be prepared to create and send over the required alternative mixes and stems promptly if you get a call or email from the Library.

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

"Look at the waveforms of the references - It immediately becomes clear how the various sections are arranged in various intensities (dynamic section, buildup, stab section, full-blast section, etc). If you skip around a bit in these refs, it's clear they are very consistent harmonically. It's the arrangement that provides the development here, not 'new ideas' or taking 'harmonies into other directions'. The reference track 'Giving It My All' is a great example regarding options in the structure. You can literally see it in the waveform from a first glance."

Please submit high-energy Pop Songs with tons of bold, hyped-up energy that would work well for sports highlights and promotional content! Your submissions should have impactful melodies, hard-hitting rhythms, super catchy choruses, powerful vocal performances, modern productions/motifs, and well-written lyrics. Pop instrumentation that's in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the reference Songs (and others like them) will work best for this opportunity. Please be sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are high quality and not dated-sounding.

Though not expressed by the Company, we think lyrical themes that relate to competition, working hard, giving it your all, never giving up, and other similar sentiments could work well here. Lyrics should avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. 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. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: This Publisher will need your Songs' instrumental version, stems, and alternative mixes as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now are the Full Songs, but please have your instrumental version ready to go, and be prepared to create and send over the required alternative mixes and stems promptly if you get a call or email from the Library.

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

HIGH-ENERGY POP/SOUL SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by BMG for placements in Promotions, Advertising, and other TV Programming.

This company gets some really, really great placements, and lots of them! Please listen to the references they provided for us to get yourself in the general stylistic wheelhouse of what they need:

Song Examples

QUOTING THE CEO OF THE COMPANY: "We need infectious Songs with an upbeat rhythm/groove. They should stick with one catchy motif, with varying degrees of intensity in the different sections of the track. Arrangements with breakdowns, build-ups, and little rhythmical twists will all help. Sounds can range from the more modern to a more traditional aesthetic. We're looking for authentic sounds and top-notch production. Full vocal songs or songs with verses and minimal, repetitive lyrics for the chorus (suitable for branding/ads) could both work."

NOTE: This Company sent us some detailed and time-stamped explanations of an arrangement that works well for them. Please use them as a reference to understand the type of structure and layout they are looking for, but make sure you are NOT copying or cloning the reference itself.

For the reference song "Feel the Beat":

0:00 - "Track starts and is consistently building up"

0:35 - "The 'chorus' comes in with a slightly different progression that moves upward, but not into a different direction altogether. Note the motif/harmony stays very consistent."

0:57 - "This break is great as a sync point and makes the track easy to cut for an editor."

1:25 - "Notice the breakdown and how it consistently builds up again."

1:48 - "Another break and great sync point."

1:51 - "Choruses again with a gentle build throughout."

Please submit Pop/Soul Songs that are full of energy, excitement, and good vibes! Your submissions should have catchy and memorable melodies, up-tempo rhythms, infectious grooves, hooky choruses, confident vocal performances, modern productions, and well-written lyrics. Soulful Pop instrumentation that's in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the reference Songs will work best for this opportunity. Please be sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are high quality, and not dated-sounding.

Lyrics should 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 only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: This Publisher will need your Songs' instrumental version, stems, and alternative mixes as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now are the Full Songs, but please have your instrumental version ready to go and be prepared to create and send over the required alternative mixes and stems promptly if you get a call or email from the Library.

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

"My Son Tim" by John Francis Flynn

"Wild Mountain Thyme" by Ella Roberts

"Chasing Rainbows" by The High Kings

Please submit well-crafted original Songs that capture the spirit of traditional Irish Folk and Celtic music while showcasing your unique sound and style! Your submissions should have authentic melodies, dynamic arrangements, solid musicianship, and well-crafted lyrics. Celtic/Irish Folk instrumentation in the general wheelhouse of the reference tracks will work best. Live and organic instrumentation is strongly suggested. If you do choose to use any virtual instruments or samples, please ensure they are high quality, very realistic, and not dated-sounding. Authentic and compelling vocals are needed!

We recommend that you submit TWO or THREE SONGS per submission, so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. This isn't necessary in order to land a deal with them, just a suggestion! You’d be wise to highlight any licensing experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have in your bio. All those things can help make you more appealing to the company! 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 are still willing to give you a listen!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your Songs well. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Record Label on a case-by-case basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include a photo and bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, June 27th, 2024. TAXI # S240627CB
