Return to List of Categories

ELECTRONIC RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a 5-Star Film/TV Music Publisher for a few (up to) $10,000 placements in a Popular TV Series that's going into its 3rd Season!

Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with these references:

WARNING: Some of the references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"Run Wild” by Thutmose ft. NoMBe

"Boss B*tch” by Doja Cat

"Keep it Mello” by Marshmello ft. Omar LinX

IMPORTANT NOTE: We’ve been told that the Music Supervisor of this show likes Songs that are "cutting-edge, innovative, and ahead of the curve musically." They will be looking to break new artists and music with this show! If you want to grab their attention, give them something that's fresh and forward-thinking, yet still has commercial appeal.

Please submit well-crafted Rap/Hip-Hop Songs that have a distinct Electronic influence or sound. Your productions should have an equal and tasteful blend of current-sounding Electronic music and Rap/Hip-Hop. Be sure your vocal performances have a fresh, current delivery that’s lyrically engaging from start to finish. At the company's request, the screener will be largely focused on the marketability of your Songs, concepts, and relevancy when deciding to forward them or not.

Lyric Tip: They would love to hear "lyrics and hooks that can set the tone for fast-paced action scenes, drug deals, and wild teenage parties, as well as Songs that will embrace the positive side of the inner city."

Please avoid references to specific names, dates, places, times, and brands in your lyrics. 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. Do NOT submit material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: The sync fee we were quoted is $10,000 for each of these placements. However, our experience tells us that this quote is probably based on the show licensing Songs from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fees could be lower for an unknown, independent act. We would “guesstimate” that the range for Songs of an unknown artist would be in the $2,500 to $5,000 range, each. It could go higher – we’re just being cautious and conservative.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please make sure the Songs you submit aren’t already signed to other libraries or catalogs. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees, and you'll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for 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 who was handpicked by the Publisher. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, June 17th, 2020.  TAXI # S200617LC

CHILLHOP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Film/TV Music Publisher for a bunch of (up to) $2,000 placements in an Animated, Kid-Friendly Show on a Major Streaming Service!

They’re in need of quite a few Down-to-Mid-Tempo Instrumentals that would fit well on a playlist with the following references we got from our client:

“New Vision” by e'rror

“No Turning Back” by Low Grade

Quoting the Publisher: “Instrumentals can be a mixture of styles that range from Hip-Hip to Electronica; however, the mood and vibe must capture the chill sound that you hear in the references.”

Please send well-produced Chillhop Instrumentals that have the mellow, easygoing vibe and feel of the references above. Your submissions should have innovative instrumentation, creative programming, and cool arrangements. Be careful not to overdo it for this request, give them something that's very chill and laidback! Please avoid submitting anything that's aggressive or energetic.

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes in length (give or take), with Non-Faded endings. 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 avoid any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media.

NOTE: Genre-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed – in other words, cool Lo-Fi recordings could work for this!

The estimated license fee for each of these placements is between $1,000 to $2,000, depending on the ultimate usage. This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please make sure the Instrumentals you submit aren’t already signed to other libraries or catalogs. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees, and you'll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity.

Lots of Sci-Fi, Lab-Style TENSION INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a European Music Library that's looking for a quite a bit of music in this style! We would guesstimate that they'll want to sign at least 10 Instrumentals in this style!

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV shows, feature films, documentaries, and cable news specials being written now and going into production when the “all clear” (or mostly clear) sounds. As you might imagine, there will be a boatload of these projects coming up, and that means this company will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

Please listen to the following references to get in the general stylistic ballpark of what they’re looking for:

"Bat and Pig" by Cliff Martinez

Plague Inc Evolved

"The Birds Are Doing That" by Cliff Martinez

If you really, really want to be at the top of your game, watch all these movies and TV shows, and take notes when you hear music! It will help pass the time while you’re cooped up, and you’ll be a pandemic-music-making genius when you’re done! Seriously, do it now, and tell your family to leave you alone because you’re “working,” lol!

Please submit well-composed Sci-Fi, Lab-Style Tension Instrumentals (and/or Cues) that could support suspenseful Lab scenes in Sci-Fi TV Shows and/or Films! Think of the type of music that might play when scientists in white lab coats are working ‘round the clock looking into microscopes and Petri dishes trying to come up with a world-saving vaccine. We’re not going to tell you how to compose these, but you might try experimenting with a very subtle (soft, muted, no top-end) percussive, mildly arpeggiated approach, and some pulsing synths. Add some unsettling tension, and voila!

You’d be smart to stick to a singular motif throughout. Your goal is not to score the film or show. They’ve already got somebody to do that. Your job is to create music that editors can fly into a scene, and it works well because it doesn’t go through the changes that a score likely would!

Submissions should be about 90 Seconds long, give or take. Non-faded endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material 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 any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. 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.

Several TRADITIONAL SPANISH FLAMENCO GUITAR INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a U.K. Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (#D200506SF) but the company wants to hear MORE material! If you submitted to listing #D200506SF, please send in different material this time around.

They’re looking for a bunch of Instrumentals in All Tempos that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of these examples:

"Rio Ancho" by Paco De Lucia

"Barrio Negro" by Tomatito

"Tres Puñales" by Enrique Montoya

"Peteneras del Cafe de Chinitas" by Carlos Montoya

Although some of the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company has a high bar and they tend to gravitate towards 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 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 well-composed Flamenco Guitar pieces with great musicianship and an authentic sound and style. Craft your Instrumentals around a central melodic motif and mood that’s cohesive throughout. Your arrangements can range from solo guitar performances to a fuller, traditional Spanish-style band accompaniments with castanets, cajon, and palmas. Please stick to traditional instrumentation, and steer clear of anything that sounds stiff, MIDI-driven, or unnatural.

NOTE: We don’t recommend using virtual guitars for this pitch, unless you are extremely masterful and your virtual instruments sound indistinguishable from the real thing!

Your submissions should be 90 seconds to 2 minutes in length, give or take. Non-faded endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it 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 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 as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Lots of EPIC POP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with a GREAT track record of placements in Film and TV!

The client is looking for a whole bunch of exciting, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference they gave us:

“Say Now” BY Raphael Lake, Aaron Levy, Ambrose Arnold

Quoting the Music Library: “Please pay attention to the tempo, driving energy, instrumentation, form, and polished productions."

IMPORTANT: They would like you to submit at least 5 Instrumental Cues! They would prefer that you submit an entire album of 10 Instrumental Cues, but that's not a requirement! They like to sign full projects, so we are telling the Screeners working on these submissions to look for top-notch batches. That said, if the majority of what you submit is really strong, but one or two are A-minus, they will likely forward your batch. We can't promise that; but if the Screener thinks the overall project sounds really strong, but hears a couple of minor things that could be fixed, they will likely be forwarded and we'll let the Company reach out to you to suggest what they think would improve your "batch."

Although the reference has vocals, this request is for Instrumental Cues only!

Please send well-crafted Instrumental Cues that have an epic and anthemic Pop feel, vibe, and style. Your productions should include big-sounding synths with engaging melodies and driving drums/percussion (as heard in the reference). Build your Cues around a central melodic theme while adding and removing layers of instruments as your pieces progress to create forward momentum and a developmental arc.

All submissions should be at least 90 seconds in length (give or take). Non-faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best. Please do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. 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 100% of your Master and Copyright.

Lots of AMBIENT DRONE INSTRUMENTALS (and/or Cues) with a MIDDLE EASTERN FLAIR are needed by a leading Music Licensing Company for “pandemic projects” that will air on Middle Eastern-themed TV programs and Documentaries. They could also air anywhere in the world that airs shows with scenes that take place in the Middle East, and we think that's quite a few!

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV shows, feature films, documentaries, and cable news specials being written now and going into production when the “all clear” (or mostly clear) sounds. As you might imagine, there will be a boatload of these projects coming up, and that means this company will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

Please listen to the following references to get in the general stylistic ballpark of what they’re looking for:

“In Doubt” by Peter Gabriel

"Time & Again" by Gilad Benamram

“10 Open” by Peter Gabriel

If you really, really want to be at the top of your game, watch all these movies and TV shows, and take notes when you hear music! It will help pass the time while you’re cooped up, and you’ll be a pandemic-music-making genius when you’re done! Seriously, do it now, and tell your family to leave you alone because you’re “working,” lol!

Please submit well-crafted ambient Instrumentals that have a consistent, droning quality and include hints of Middle Eastern instruments, melodies, and/or percussion. Think of what would work well in scenes where the plot is developing, the virus is being revealed, and the scientists conclude that the world is in for quite a ride! You could try a cinematic underscore approach that’s nearly atonal and presents more of an ambient texture rather than any significant melodic movement, just be sure it incorporates some Middle Eastern elements throughout. Some non-lyrical, Middle Eastern-sounding vocalizations could work as well, but that’s not a requirement… just a brilliant idea we had, lol.

You’d be smart to stick to a singular motif throughout. Your goal is not to score the film or show. They’ve already got somebody to do that. Your job is to create music that editors can fly into a scene and will work well because it doesn't go through the changes that a score likely would!

Your submissions can have some cinematic sound design elements, but don’t go overboard. Less is more! Keep it simple and ambient. Remember, your music isn’t the star of the scene, but the scene would suck without it! If viewers notice your music rather than feel it, you might have gone too far! Repeat after me: Simple and ambient, simple and ambient, simple, and ambient…

Submissions should be about 90 Seconds long, give or take. Non-faded endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material 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 (and/or Cues) that you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. Any sync fees will be split 50/50 with 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 Instrumentals (and/or Cues) as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

DARK, SUSPENSEFUL INSTRUMENTALS are needed for an (up to) $500, Direct-to-Producer placement in an Independent Feature Film!

This film's Producer is currently looking for a Mid-Tempo Instrumental that would work well as a replacement for “Re-Animation,"  which is currently temped in:

“Re-Animation” Peter Godfrey

The film's Producer is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

The client is looking for an Instrumental that evokes feelings of skepticism, as this will be played when characters awake into an alternate reality. Judging from the reference the film's Producer gave us, well-composed Orchestral-driven Instrumentals will probably work best. However, other arrangements could work as long as they evoke the right emotions. We’d recommend listening to the reference a couple of times so you can really hone in on the “vibe,” as this request is all about setting a skeptical, suspenseful mood!

NOTE: You’d be wise to stick to a singular motif and mood throughout your pieces, so your submissions are cohesive from top to bottom. Please also avoid submitting anything that has an overbearing, horror-movie sound.

Your submissions should be about 2 to 3 minutes in length, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned endings will work best. Do NOT copy the reference in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The license fee for this placement is (up to) $500, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the License Fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD.

TAXI Tip: If you’re using samples or Virtual Instruments, please be careful to avoid anything that sounds synthetic and/or MIDI-driven. Please also avoid submitting anything that sounds too busy, as it could potentially interfere with dialogue.

Your submissions should be about 2 to 3 minutes in length, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned 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, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Lots of SCI-FI INVESTIGATIVE TENSION INSTRUMENTALS AND/OR INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed for “pandemic-related projects” by a successful Music Library with tons of AWESOME placements.

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV shows, feature films, documentaries, and cable news specials being written now and going into production when the “all clear” (or mostly clear) sounds. As you might imagine, there will be a boatload of these projects coming up, and that means this company will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

Please listen to the following references to get in the general stylistic ballpark of what they’re looking for:

“Move Away From The Table” by Cliff Martinez

Suspenseful Background Music

"Get Off The Bus" by Cliff Martinez

If you really, really want to be at the top of your game, watch all these movies and TV shows, and take notes when you hear music! It will help pass the time while you’re cooped up, and you’ll be a pandemic-music-making genius when you’re done! Seriously, do it now, and tell your family to leave you alone because you’re “working,” lol!

Please submit well-crafted Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues that convey an unsettling, moody feeling that that could work well in investigative scenes. Think of what might play when scientists are doing research and looking for clues on how to stop the pandemic! Electronic and/or Orchestral Instrumentation can work, but don’t add too many layers – just enough to give your Instrumentals and/or Cues some forward momentum and to keep them from sounding repetitive.

You’d be smart to stick to a singular motif throughout. Your goal is not to score the film or show. They’ve already got somebody to do that. Your job is to create music that editors can fly into a scene.

Submissions should be 90 Seconds long, give or take. Non-faded, Stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT 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. They ONLY want to hear new music that has never been signed or distributed by anyone else. This includes publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby, TuneCore, DistroKid, etc.

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 keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. 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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, June 25th, 2020.  TAXI # S200625SC

Lots of Light-Hearted HIP-HOP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with a GREAT track record of placements in Film and TV!

The client is looking for a whole bunch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

“iSpy (Instrumental) ” BY KYLE ft. Lil Yachty

“Broccoli (Instrumental)” by DRAM ft Lil Yachty

“Marmalade (Instrumental)” by Macklemore ft. Lil Yachty

IMPORTANT: They would like you to submit at least 5 Instrumental Cues! They would prefer that you submit an entire album of 10 Instrumental Cues, but that's not a requirement! They like to sign full projects, so we are telling the Screeners working on these submissions to look for top-notch batches. That said, if the majority of what you submit is really strong, but one or two are A-minus, they will likely forward your batch. We can't promise that; but if the Screener thinks the overall project sounds really strong, but hears a couple of minor things that could be fixed, they will likely be forwarded and we'll let the Company reach out to you to suggest what they think would improve your "batch."

Please send well-produced Instrumental Cues that have a carefree and playful feel, vibe, and style. Your productions should have bouncy, feel-good melodies, and should include elements like (but not limited to): pianos, organs, and banging Hip-Hop drums. Build your Cues around a central melodic theme while adding and removing layers of instruments as your pieces progress to create forward momentum and a developmental arc. While we can’t guarantee this will be the winning combination, we think using some organic-sounding instrumentation and putting it over some speaker-knocking, Hip-Hop drums could put you in the sweet spot for this request!

All submissions should be at least 90 seconds in length (give or take). Non-faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best. Please do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. 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. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of 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 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, June 14th, 2020.  TAXI # S200614HH

MODERN SURF ROCK INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Music Licensing Company that specializes in music for content creators as well as TV shows and Film projects!

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references:

"Mojave" by Insect Surfers

Please send well-composed Instrumentals that have a contemporary California Surf Rock sound and style. Make sure your productions sound like authentic bands with solid musicianship and the kind of instrumentation you’d typically hear in Surf Rock.

Anything that’s obviously synthetic-sounding or MIDI-driven won’t work well for this company.

All submissions should be about two to three minutes in length (give or take). Non-Faded, Button/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 both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to sign an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material that’s already signed with other libraries or publishers for this pitch. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals 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 Tuesday, June 9th, 2020.  TAXI # S200609SR

Please submit current-sounding Latin Pop Songs in the ballpark of the references above. Contemporary Pop elements with some melodically and rhythmically appealing Latin-flavored instrumentation could help get you in the wheelhouse for this request. Your Songs can feature vocals performed strictly in Spanish, OR you can use a combination of Spanish mixed with English!

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.

“Tuyo” by Rodrigo Amarante

“LA REBELION” by Joe Arroyo

Also, 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 Latin Songs that have a traditional sound and feel. Your productions should have the kind of authentic instruments, rhythms, and melodies heard in the references above. Your submissions should be lyrically engaging with compelling vocal deliveries performed in Spanish.

“break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored” by Ariana Grande

“Lay Low” by Roxie

Please send youthful, radio-friendly Pop Songs that have a noticeable Urban quality and flavor to them. Top-notch songwriting, slick production techniques, and polished vocal performances are all elements that could help you sell your Songs to the artist and her Record Label!

LYRIC Tip: While your lyrics should fall on the younger side of the Pop spectrum, they do not want to hear any bubblegum Pop, as they’re trying to build a more mature repertoire for the artist. Keep your lyrics fresh, cool, and current!

NOTE: If your Songs are accepted, this label gives 100% of the buyout fees (for the Master Recording and the Publisher's share) to the songwriters/producers of the Songs, which normally range from $800 to $1,000 each. The songwriter(s) keep 100% of the Writer's share of the publishing.

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced so that it represents your Songs well. The specific deal points will be negotiated on a Song-by-Song basis directly with the Record Label. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include lyrics.

Several EDGY FEMALE RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS (with Female Vocals) are needed by a 5-Star Film/TV Music Publisher for a few (up to) $10,000 placements in a Popular TV Series that's going into its 3rd Season!

They’re searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the stylistic ballpark of artists like:  Saweety, Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, etc. Please listen to the following Songs our client gave us to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need:

WARNING: Some of the references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

“My Type” by Saweety

"Rules” by Doja Cat

“Captain Hook ” by Megan Thee Stallion

IMPORTANT NOTE: We’ve been told that the Music Supervisor of this show likes Songs that are "cutting-edge, innovative, and ahead of the curve musically."  They will be looking to break new artists and music with this show! If you want to grab their attention, give them something that's fresh and forward-thinking, yet still has commercial appeal.

Please submit current-sounding Rap/Hip-Hop Songs that have an edgy, risque style and sound – the kind you might hear in strip clubs! Songs with banging beats, fresh lyrics, and sassy vocal deliveries (with plenty of attitude) should help you grab the attention of this Music Publisher and Music Supervisor.

LYRIC TIP: Lyrically they're looking for Songs with risque concepts and themes for this request. Avoiding lyrics that refer to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place.

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. Also, do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: The sync fee we were quoted is $10,000 for each of the placements. However, our experience tells us that this quote is probably based on the show licensing Songs from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fees could be lower for an unknown, independent act. We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s Song would be in the $2,500 to $5,000 range. It could go higher, we’re just being cautious and conservative.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please make sure the Songs you submit aren’t already signed to other libraries or catalogs. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees, and you'll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for 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 who was handpicked by the Publisher. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on  Thursday, June 18th, 2020.  TAXI # S200618FC

MODERN, SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a 5-Star Film/TV Music Publisher for a few (up to) $10,000 placements in a Popular TV Series that's going into its 3rd Season!

NOTE: Over the course of the next few days you will see several requests from this Music Publisher, as they are looking for a variety of R&B and Hip-Hop styles for this show and will be using TAXI as their primary source to find that music!

Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with these references:

WARNING: Some of the references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"Higher ” by DJ Khaled ft. Nipsey Hussle, John Legend

“Sue Me ” by Wale ft. Kelly Price

"This Is America” by Childish Gambino

IMPORTANT NOTE: We’ve been told that the Music Supervisor of this show likes Songs that are "cutting-edge, innovative, and ahead of the curve musically."  They will be looking to break new artists and music with this show! If you want to grab their attention, give them something that's fresh and forward-thinking, yet still has commercial appeal.

Please submit well-crafted Rap/Hip-Hop Songs with a style and sound that’s in league with the references mentioned above. Your submissions should have creative metaphors, inventive wordplay, and empowering choruses that deliver strong, socially conscious messages! Please be sure vocal performances are rhythmically and lyrically engaging. At the company's request, the screener will be largely focused on the marketability of your Songs, concept, and relevancy when deciding to forward them or not.

Lyric Tip: While socially conscious lyric themes and concepts would ideally work for this request, they would love to hear lyrics and hooks that can set the tone for fast-paced action scenes, drug deals, and wild teenage parties, as well as Songs that will embrace the positive side of the inner city. Do you have Songs that meld these two things: socially conscious, and good for fast-paced action and/or party scenes?

Please avoid references to specific names, dates, places, times, and brands in your lyrics. 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. Do NOT submit material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We’ve been told that the Music Supervisor of this show likes Songs that are "cutting-edge, innovative, and ahead of the curve musically."  They will be looking to break new artists and music with this show! If you want to grab their attention, give them something that's fresh and forward-thinking, yet still has commercial appeal.

Please submit well-produced Rap/Hip-Hop Songs with a contemporary, mainstream sound. Songs that are structured around great beats, fresh lyrics, and confident vocal deliveries full of swagger should help you nail this request. You’d be wise to send Songs that sound more like records, rather than material that sounds like it came from a stock Music Library. At the company's request, the screener will be largely focused on the marketability of your Songs, concepts, and relevancy when deciding to forward them or not.

Lyric Tip: They would love to hear lyrics and hooks that can set the tone for fast-paced action scenes, drug deals, and wild teenage parties, as well as Songs that will embrace the positive side of the inner city.

Please avoid references to specific names, dates, places, times, and brands in your lyrics. 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. Do NOT submit material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: The sync fee we were quoted is $10,000 for each of these placements. However, our experience tells us that this quote is probably based on the show licensing Songs from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fees could be lower for an unknown, independent act. We would “guesstimate” that the range for Songs of an unknown artist would be in the $2,500 to $5,000 range, each. It could go higher – we’re just being cautious and conservative.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please make sure the Songs you submit aren’t already signed to other libraries or catalogs. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees, and you'll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for 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 who was handpicked by the Publisher. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, June 16th, 2020.  TAXI # S200616AP

Songs For COVID-19 Pandemic Projects

Return to List of Categories

A WIDE RANGE of HEARTFELT SONGS with Inspiring Lyric Themes about HOPE (and Male or Female Vocals) are needed by a leading Music Licensing Company for “pandemic projects” that will air on Middle Eastern-themed TV programs and Documentaries. They could also air anywhere in the world!

NOTE: We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. This Company is open to all commercially viable styles and genres, but they MUST have a Middle Eastern twist. Incorporating Middle Eastern instrumentation, scales, and/or melodies in your Songs should help you get in the right stylistic wheelhouse.

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV shows, feature films, documentaries, and cable news specials being written now and going into production when the “all clear” (or mostly clear) sounds. They’re going to need several of these, as there will very likely be a boatload of those projects coming up. That means this company (and others!) will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

Please submit well-crafted Songs with emotionally touching melodies, poignant lyrics, and inspiring choruses that tug at the heartstrings. Think of the type of Songs that would play during montage scenes where they find a cure for the virus, or when they're showing stores and restaurants opening back up! Great vocal performances with touching deliveries could help you stand out for this request!

LYRIC Tip: Lyrically, your Songs should have inspiring themes about hope, overcoming hardship, getting through tough times, seeing light at the end of the tunnel, beating the odds, rising from the ashes, etc. Lyrics must be in a language from a Middle Eastern region – no English, please.

Lyrics that avoid reference to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this company, and ultimately the Music Supervisors who will use them in their scenes. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

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 keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and please include a lyric sheet. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, July 1st, 2020.  TAXI # S200701ME

A WIDE RANGE of SONGS with Positive, Uplifting Lyrics about STRENGTH and HEROISM (with Male or Female Vocals) are needed for “pandemic projects” by a successful Music Library with tons of Film and TV placements.

NOTE: We are also running a TAXI Listing for Lyrics about Strength and Heroism for a different client/company, as listing #S200521CV, so please don’t confuse the two. Given that each of these companies regularly places music (much of it from TAXI members) we encourage you to increase your chances by submitting to BOTH of these Listings if you've got the Songs!

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV shows, feature films, documentaries, and cable news specials being written now and going into production when the “all clear” (or mostly clear) sounds. They’re going to need several of these, as there will very likely be a boatload of those projects coming up. That means this company (and others!) will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

NOTE: We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. However, this company tends to request the following commercially viable genres from TAXI, so you’d probably be wise to focus your efforts on Pop, Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Country, Indie Folk, Rock, and Hip-Hop Songs.

Please submit well-crafted Songs that would make listeners feel hopeful and inspired! Think of the kinds of Songs you might hear at the end of the movie as the heroic protagonist is being honored for finding the lifesaving cure (we can hope)! Your production styles can vary, just be sure to have great vocal performances, and genre-appropriate instrumentation and arrangements.

LYRIC Tip: Lyrically, your Songs should have inspiring themes about heroes, heroism, strength, being strong, staying strong, staying tough, sacrifice, resilience, taking care of others, coming out on top, etc.

Lyrics that avoid reference to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to Music Supervisors. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

Broadcast Quality is needed.

If you really, really want to be at the top of your game, watch all these movies and TV shows, and take notes when you hear music! It will help pass the time while you’re cooped up, and you’ll be a pandemic-music-making genius when you’re done! Seriously, do it now, and tell your family to leave you alone because you’re “working,” lol!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company ONLY wants new Songs that have never been signed or distributed by anyone else. This also includes publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby, TuneCore, DistroKid, etc.

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.

Lots of SONGS with Lyric Themes about “Getting Through Tough Times” (and Male or Female Vocals) are needed by a really cool Music Licensing Company with tons of credits in Feature Films, TV Shows, and Commercials!

NOTE: We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. However, this company tends to request the following commercially viable genres from TAXI, so you’d probably be wise to focus your efforts on Folk, Singer/Songwriter, Rock, Pop, and R&B Songs.

Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs are usually more easily placed, but if you have really strong Ballads or Down-Tempo Songs, those could work as well in this context.

Please submit original Songs that deliver a hopeful message about rising above the tough situations in times of adversity. Your Songs can range anywhere from very simple, stripped-down versions, to fuller productions with more instrumentation. Whichever genre or sub-genre you’re pitching, be sure to have genre-appropriate instrumentation and productions. Be sure your submissions have great melodies, well-crafted lyrics, compelling choruses, and vocals that are well-performed from start to finish.

Lyric Tip: Lyric themes should focus on concepts revolving around:

  • Getting through tough times
  • Overcoming hardships
  • Facing the fear of the unknown
  • Staying strong in the face of adversity
  • Coming out on top
  • Beating the odds

TAXI Tip: We strongly suspect these Songs will be used in the inevitable TV shows and movies about the Coronavirus Pandemic.

As always, you'd be wise to avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase the chances of your Songs getting signed and ultimately landing placements. You'd also be smart to avoid lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Company offers both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to sign an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material you've already signed with other libraries or publishers.

A Bunch of SONGS with LOVE and FRIENDSHIP Lyric Themes (and Male or Female Vocals) are needed for “pandemic projects” by a European Music Library that's looking for a quite a bit of music in this style! We would guesstimate that they'll want to sign at least 10 Songs in this style!

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV shows, feature films, documentaries, and cable news specials being written now and going into production when the “all clear” (or mostly clear) sounds. They’re going to need several of these, as there will very likely be a boatload of those projects coming up. That means this company (and others!) will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

NOTE: We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful. However, this company tends to request the following commercially viable genres from TAXI, so you’d probably be wise to focus your efforts on Pop, Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Country, Indie Folk, Rock, and Hip-Hop Songs.

Please submit compelling Songs that drive home an emotionally moving message about Love and Friendship. Think of the kinds of Songs you might hear at the end of the movie when two friends have survived the pandemic or what might play when the protagonist is finally reunited with his/her love interest! You can go with a relatively simple Stripped-Down Guitar/Vocal or Piano/Vocal performances, as well as versions with fuller productions. Having well-performed vocals could help your Songs stand out for this request!

LYRIC Tip: Lyrically, your Songs should have themes about (but not limited to) love, familial love, romantic love, making sacrifices for those we love, the importance of love, friendship, friends and the importance of having them, banding together, sticking together through thick and thin, connections, togetherness, gratitude, and support.

Lyrics that avoid reference to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this company, and ultimately the Music Supervisors who will use them in their scenes. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

A WIDE RANGE of SONGS with Positive, Uplifting Lyrics and Male or Female Vocals are needed by an awesome Music Publisher that will be pitching to “Post-Pandemic” TV Commercials in the near future!

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV Commercials they anticipate will feature messages and images about “life after the pandemic."

We’ve come up with some key concepts, keywords, ideas, and phrases 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!

Concepts and keywords:

  • A brand new day
  • Time to go out and play
  • Getting out
  • Getting together
  • Rise up
  • Living life again
  • Taking or getting your life back
  • Moving on
  • A fresh start
  • Feeling free

Lyric themes:
Common sense tells us that most of these TV Commercials will show montages of people at the beach, parks, family gatherings, out shopping, and generally living life again once this pandemic is just a memory. We're all ready for that, right?!

General concepts in your lyrics could work better than telling full stories. Lyrics that also avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to Ad Agencies. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

Your Songs should have a positive, uplifting, advertising-friendly mood that could easily work for a wide range of placements in Post-Pandemic TV Commercials. Your productions and vocals need to be strong enough that they would sound great in a big, national TV Commercial. In other words, top-notch vocals and Broadcast Quality.

Possible genres and styles:
We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. However, this company tends to request the following commercially-viable genres from TAXI, so you’d probably be wise to focus your efforts on Pop, Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Indie Folk, Rock, and Hip-Hop Songs.

Tempo:
Up-Tempo Songs that convey an upbeat, inspiring vibe will likely work better in this context than Down-Tempo Songs that feel melancholy or sad.

Our A&R team will have a simple mandate:
Is it GREAT? Can you imagine hearing it in a big, national ad campaign? Does it sound ready-to-go as-is? Does it fit the emotional vibe and message that would likely be in TV Spots about this general subject/topic?

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. 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 by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, June 10th, 2020.  TAXI # S200610UP

For this request, you can submit very simple, stripped-down Songs or you can submit more fully-arranged productions.

Genre appropriate music productions, memorable melodies, great lyrics, and well-performed vocals are all required for this request! Female vocalists only, please.

NOTE: Please submit old masters only. Authenticity is key! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC VINTAGE RECORDINGS.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality will work. They’re interested in finding music with reasonably good fidelity that sounds authentic to the time period.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please include the Years your Songs were recorded in the lyric sections of each of your TAXI submission forms! You DO NOT need to include the lyric sheets for this request, but you can if you like. However, you MUST provide us with the years the Songs were recorded, if you'd like to be considered for this request.

Original, VINTAGE GRUNGE ROCK SONGS that were Recorded in the 1990s with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Publisher that gets a lot of Film, TV and Commercial placements.

They’re searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that fit the vibe and style found in these references:

"Nearly Lost You" by Screaming Trees

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana

"Plush" by Stone Temple Pilots

"Pretend We're Dead" by L7

NOTE: They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They're looking for AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, OLD-SCHOOL RECORDINGS, and only if the sound quality is reasonably good.

Please submit authentic-sounding Grunge Rock Songs that sound like they would have been heard all over rock radio during the 1990s! Your submissions should have authentic-sounding Rock instrumentation, engaging rhythm sections, and big anthemic choruses. Your vocal performances should have some attitude to them, with the kind of edge you’d typically hear in '90s Grunge Rock Songs.

Lyrics that do not mention specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will potentially make your Songs more usable. 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.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality will suffice. They’re interested in finding music with reasonably good fidelity that sounds authentic to the time period.

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 Thursday, June 18th, 2020.  TAXI # S200618NG
