    EMPOWERING A/C POP SONGS with some SOUL/R&B influence and Female Vocals are needed by a Major Label Producer for a HUGE, multi-Platinum, multi-Grammy Award-Winning Artist!

    Our client is looking for radio-worthy, Mid-to-Up-Tempo HITS that could be found on the same playlist as the references he provided:

    “Heat” by Kelly Clarkson

    “A Good Night” by John Legend, BloodPop

    “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyoncé

    NOTE: Although one of the references has Male Vocals, please submit Songs with Female Vocals ONLY and use these references as a general directional guide for productions, style, sound, and vibe.

    Please submit Songs with engaging melodies and big, anthemic choruses that deliver an empowering message. Having well-produced Songs is preferred; however, stripped-down Guitar/Vocal or Piano/Vocal demos could potentially work for this pitch as long as you can effectively get the message across for the Songs!

    NOTE: This artist is known for her amazing vocal range, so please submit Songs that have soaring vocal melodies that could show off this singer’s voice. Please, no explicit lyrics or swearing.

    Your recording quality needs to be clean, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include Lyrics. Time permitting, the Producer himself may screen some or all of the submissions! All submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, August 21st, 2019.  TAXI #Y190821AC

    ADULT CONTEMPORARY/AAA ARTISTS with Female Vocals are needed by a U.K.-based Record Label that's eager to find its next breakout act.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (TAXI #D190730AC), but the company didn’t get enough material. If you submitted to TAXI #D190730AC, please submit different material this time around!

    They’re looking for acts that would appeal to fans of artists like:

    “Water Under The Bridge” by Adele

    “Walk Me Home” by P!nk

    “tiny victories” By Christina Perri

    Please submit well-crafted A/C or AAA (Adult Album Alternative) Songs with a commercial sound and structure. Your Songs should have compelling melodies and emotionally impactful choruses. Your productions should be top-notch, with polished vocal performances that are expressive and that generally reflect the vibe of the references mentioned above.

    They’re interested in artists and bands that are actively working on their careers; so in your bio, please include info about touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an absolutely amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they are still willing to listen to you!

    Submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI A&R team member handpicked by the company – No full critiques.

    NEW LISTING --

    A RANGE OF ORIGINAL SOUL SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a few (up to) $50,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placements in a series of Holiday Commercials for a big Fashion Brand!

    They’re looking for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got from the client:

    “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne

    “Carry You” by The Teskey Brothers

    “Bring It On Home To Me” by Sam Cooke

    “Light of My Life” by The James Hunter Six

    “Many A Wonderful Moment” by Rosemary Clooney

    The Ad Agency likes these references as examples of what might work for this TV Commercial. They are not looking for clones, copies or soundalikes, but they’d love to find something that captures the vibe, sound, and feel found in the references.

    NOTE: Although these placements are for a Holiday Commercial, the client would like to avoid anything overtly "holiday"-sounding.  Instead, they want to hear material that conveys a warm vibe that sounds/feels "like home."  Keep it warm and intimate!

    Please submit soulfully-expressive Songs that capture the nostalgic, timeless feel and style of the references above. Your submissions must have top-notch lyrics, engaging melodies, solid productions, and compelling choruses to bring it all together. Soulfully expressive vocal performances with plenty of confidence and emotion will help your Songs stand out!

    LYRIC TIP: They’re looking for lyrical themes about love, family, home, etc. Lyrics that don’t have specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your Songs more appealing to the Ad-Agency.

    Recently recorded, but Retro-sounding AND legitimate Vintage recordings are all fair game for this request!  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. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is up-to $50,000, depending on the ultimate uses. These will be Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placements. You’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, although we suspect that you won’t be able to license your Songs for any other Commercials for the duration of the agreement, which will be determined by the Ad Agency and you. You must own or control the Master and Composition rights to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a Screener who has been handpicked by the Ad Agency - Short critiques only. All Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, August 27th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190827SL

    Blues

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL BLUES SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a very active and fast-growing Music Library that specializes in pitching primarily to Advertising Agencies.

    This company is still pretty new to requesting music from TAXI's members, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet. This is a great time to build a relationship with them!

    They're looking for Down-To-Mid-Tempo Songs that could fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got from the company:

    “The Sky is Crying” by Gary B.B. Coleman

    “Don't Worry About Me” by Mighty Sam McClain

    Please submit soulfully expressive Blues Songs with tons of bluesy attitude and emotion. Having killer melodies, great guitar sounds (and playing), and strong, believably bluesy vocal performances are all elements that could make your Songs appealing to this Music Licensing company.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should generally fit with what you hear in the Blues genre. Happy or emotionally upbeat lyrics are probably not good choices for this pitch. Please avoid references to specific brands, places, dates, times, names, 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.

    This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You’ll keep 100% of the original copyright. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this pitch. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or on CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, August 25th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190825BL

    Christian

    Return to List of Categories

    CHRISTIAN SINGER/SONGWRITER or CHRISTIAN FOLK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very successful Christian Production Company that’s working on multiple Independent Films!

    NOTE: This company has just started requesting music from TAXI's members, so this is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor!

    They’re searching for Songs in All Tempos that fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury

    “Sweet Dreams” by Andra & Mara

    “Known” by Tauren Wells

    Please submit contemporary Singer/Songwriter or Folk-style Christian Songs with uplifting melodies, inspiring lyrics, and emotionally powerful choruses that draw the listener in. You can go with a relatively simple, Stripped-Down Guitar/Vocal or Piano/Vocal performance, but it needs to be as strong as what you hear in the references. Be sure your vocal performance is heartfelt, honest, and believable.

    LYRIC Tip: This client prefers to hear stuff that isn’t too poppy or too clean. He likes rather serious – but not self-indulgent – material. Consult the references to get a better idea of what they're searching for. Lyrically, consider a theme like "life is a struggle, but beauty comes out of the struggle." You’d also be wise to submit songs with lyrics that don't overly rely on direct references to “Jesus” or “God,” but instead have references to “Him,” “Hallelujah,” “Lift Me Up,” etc.

    Do not copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: There’s been no sync fee given to us yet; but based on similar requests, we're guesstimating the range to be between $150 - $500 depending on the ultimate placements.

    The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, August 21st, 2019.  TAXI #Y190821SS

    Christmas / Holiday

    Return to List of Categories

    PUBLIC DOMAIN CHRISTMAS SONGS in a Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Eastern European, or Balkan style - with Male or Female Vocals - are needed by an International Music Licensing firm with worldwide distribution through Universal!

    NOTE: Due to the unique nature of this request, we purposely didn't include references, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful.

    Give them well-crafted Covers of Public Domain Christmas Songs that have solid productions, great vocal performances, and an approach that captures a Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Eastern European, or Balkan style and sound. Please stick to the original melody and lyric of the song(s) you cover, so that they are familiar to listeners. If you stray too far from the original melody, your Cover may not be as appealing or usable.

    NOTE: Your Songs can vary from stripped-down arrangements (if they're really good) to fuller, more realized productions, as long as the overall mood and vibe have a noticeable influence of one of the aforementioned locations of the world.

    Broadcast Quality is needed.

    In case you’re unsure if your Songs are in the Public Domain, here’s a link that will help:
    Public Domain Christmas Songs

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with any other Companies or Catalogs. Any sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. You must own or control your Master Recordings in order to submit to this pitch.  Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD.

    Country

    Return to List of Categories

    COUNTRY HITS with Male Vocals are needed by a great Music Row Publisher for HUGE, Multi-Award-Winning Country MEGA Star. Please submit great Songs in All-Tempos that could fit in the general stylistic ballpark of these references:

    “We Were” by Keith Urban

    “Thought About You” by Tim McGraw

    "I Lived It" by Blake Shelton

    Please submit Songs with fresh, unique ideas that have good energy and substance. Your submissions should have great Country melodies and super strong choruses that are ready for (top of) the charts! Your vocal performance should be so compelling that it will make this legendary SUPERSTAR beg to cut your Songs!

    In other words – the bar for this request will be high, and we're looking for that needle-in-the-haystack Song! Only the best of the best will be forwarded; but if you should happen to get a cut with this artist, it could be completely career-changing!

    NOTE: Stripped-Down demos and full productions are both okay to submit, as long as your Songs are great and your recordings are clean, clear, and well-balanced!

    NOTEWORTHY: If time permits, somebody from the Publisher's staff who has been trained as a TAXI screener will be "the decider" for this request. That means that somebody who is directly involved in this request and ultimate pitch could be "ears-on" with your submissions.

    The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Publisher. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and PLEASE include lyrics!

    BLUEGRASS and/or NEWGRASS SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several $4,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements in a Feature Film.

    The Supervisor is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist as (but not limited to) acts and songs like these references he provided us:

    “The Ride” by Jerry Douglas

    “The Lighthouse's Tale” by Nickel Creek

    “Big Mon” by Sam Bush

    “Black Mountain Rag” by Doc Watson

    "Sunset Road" by Béla Fleck and The Flecktones

    NOTE: Although some of the references are Instrumentals, please use those references only as a directional guide for the production style, vibe, and sonic approach that could work for this pitch. Please submit Full Songs with Male Vocals for this request.

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: "Looking for Mid-Tempo to Up-Beat Songs with authentic, personal lyrics and great performances. No covers, please! Original music only."

    This search is for well-crafted, toe-tapping Songs that use authentic-sounding Bluegrass instrumentation to create a rootsy, “down-home” sound and vibe. Your Songs should include great melodies and authentic, polished vocal performances. The bar is HIGH, so your chances will increase if you send material that sounds more like records than music library tracks for this pitch!

    Lyric themes can vary, but lyrics that are more on the introspective side of the spectrum will work best. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity will be appreciated by the Music Supervisor as they are easier to place. Do not copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    So, what's NEWGRASS?  It's a modern, progressive form of Bluegrass music, often with fusions of Rock and/or Jazz instrumentation mixed in. More details can be found HERE and HERE.

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $4,000, depending on the ultimate placements. These will be Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fees and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Masters and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD; please include Lyrics.

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several $4,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in a Feature Film.

    The Supervisor is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist as (but not limited to) acts and Songs like the following references the Music Supervisor gave us:

    “She Got The Best of Me” by Luke Combs

    “What Makes You Country” by Luke Bryan

    “Setting The World On Fire” by Kenny Chesney

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “Songs should be heartwarming, honest and introspective, have top-notch performances and powerful lyrics with interesting imagery.”

    Please submit current-sounding Country Songs with quality lyrics, super catchy melodies, and big, powerful Country choruses. Be sure your submissions have a well-crafted song structure with well-played Country-based instrumentation. Your vocal performances should have plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity.

    TAXI Tip: The bar will be really high for this request, so the more radio-ready your Songs sound, the better your chances could be for nailing this request. It’s better to send material that sounds more like records than music library tracks for this pitch.

    Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity will be appreciated by the Music Supervisor, as they are often easier to place because they don't conflict with the story or the scene. Do not copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOT Radio-Style COUNTRY ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a historic and well-respected Nashville-based Record Label that’s scouting for some great new acts to sign.

    This company has just started requesting music from TAXI's members, so it’s a good time to grab their attention! They’re looking for Songs in All-Tempos that could be found on the same playlist as artists like:

    “Mockingbird” by Ruston Kelly

    “If It's In Your Heart” by The War and Treaty

    Quoting the Record Label's A&R person: “I’m into great songs and great voices. Please, nothing that sounds like it would be worked to current Country radio.”

    In other words, he's NOT looking for slick, radio-style Country. Country that's rougher around the edges and not so Country-pop-ish seems to be what he's hunting for!

    Please submit one-of-a-kind Country Songs that highlight your unique sound, with authentic, traditional instrumentation, solid musicianship, and a great vocal signature.  Remember, this client is all about distinctly amazing vocalists, so show him what you've got!

    You’d be wise to lean towards the hip, indie side of what would work in Country, as this label often gravitates to more material that barely sounds like today's Country/Top 40 Radio. Feel free to test the limits, but be sure your Songs still have roots firmly planted in Country!

    NOTE: TAXI will have to be really selective in what we send this Record Label, so the bar will be high for this request. That said, you’d be wise to send in THREE Songs per submission, so they can see that you’ve got depth in your material.

    Your productions and recording quality need to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. 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, but you do have an amazing sound and the Songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear from you!

    Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, September 6th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190906CA

    Please listen to the references below to get in the general ballpark of what might get this supercool Record Label interested in what you’re doing:

    “High On Life” by Martin Garrix ft. Bonn

    "Love No More" by Loud Luxury x anders

    "Ritual" by Tiësto, Jonas Blue & Rita Ora

    Submit hit-worthy Songs that showcase your unique sound and personality. Submissions should have solid structure, awesome productions, and standout choruses that will make them beg to sign you! Your vocal performances should be strong enough to share a stage with the referenced acts.

    Note: It may be wise to submit THREE Songs per submission for this request. Labels like to make sure you're more than a one-hit-wonder ;-) If you've got it, flaunt it!

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

    A RANGE OF ELECTRONIC DANCE/HOUSE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very active, fast-growing Music Licensing Company that specializes in pitching to Advertising Agencies.

    This company is still pretty new to requesting music from TAXI's members, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet. This is a great opportunity to get on their radar and build a relationship with them! They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of (but not limited to) these references our client gave us:

    “Be Mine” by Ofenbach

    “Back Down” by Bob Moses

    “Pizza” by Martin Garrix (Ignore the string part at the beginning)

    “Dirty Club” by Nathan Rux

    Please submit Songs that are melodically, rhythmically, and lyrically engaging and have the appeal of modern EDM songs. Big choruses are key here! Be sure your vocals are polished and well-performed from top to bottom.

    TAXI Tip: Your Song arrangements can take on a typical A/B/A/B structure with verses and choruses, or it can take on a more modal, EDM structure built around builds and drops, minimalist chants, and vocal phrases sparsely placed throughout the Songs.

    Lyric themes can vary, but keep things consistent with what you would typically hear in the EDM genre. Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will be best for this request as it will increase your chances with Music Supervisors by making your Songs more usable. 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.

    “White Winter Hymnal” Fleet Foxes

    “Preservation” Nadia Reid

    “Call It Dreaming” by Iron & Wine

    Quoting Our Source: “Please avoid submitting anything fast-paced, high energy, or foot-stomping.”

    Give them well-crafted Indie Folk Songs with emotionally engaging melodies, solid musicianship, and strong songwriting. Songs with an acoustic-based Folk structure and production should work best. Something as simple as a guitar/vocal could work for this as long as it’s really done well!

    They didn’t specify any lyric themes; but if you can imagine hearing your lyric fitting in with the references above, then you’re probably in the ballpark. 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.

    Whatever you’re pitching, the music should sound current and contemporary, with genre-appropriate instrumentation and productionS. Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs should typically do the best job of impressing this company, but if you’ve got awesome balladS, feel free to take the shot!

    NOTE: Submitting THREE Songs per submission would be wise, so that they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

    Your productions and recording quality need to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. 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!

    The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Publisher. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, September 7th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190907ME

    ORCHESTRAL "AWARD SHOW" INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a highly successful EXCLUSIVE Music Library for a variety of Film, TV, and Commercial placements.

    They’re looking for well-composed Instrumentals that would fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of these references:

    Academy Awards Original Closing Credits Theme Music

    Uplifting and Inspiring Background Music for Awards Ceremony

    Oscars Theme Music

    Give them exceptional Orchestral compositions (this company has a high bar) that sound like they could be from a high-profile award show. Think of the kind of music that they play as someone takes the stage to accept an award or when they speak too long and the music plays to let them know they're getting "the hook." This company would really like to find pieces that would work well for "walk-ons" and "walk-offs" (entrances and exits). If your Instrumentals have good beginnings and endings that could be cut together to make short pieces for entrances and exits, they'll love you for it!

    Your Instrumentals should have a believable Orchestral approach – submissions should sound like real instruments played by real humans. Please avoid submitting anything that sounds stiff, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven. The more authentic, the better!

    Your submissions should be about 90 to 120 seconds long, give or take.

    Non-faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings should work best for this pitch. Do not copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this pitch CANNOT be signed with any other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only.

    CINEMATIC 1980s-Style ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a globally successful Music Licensing Firm with a great track record of placements in Films, TV shows, and Commercials.

    They’re eagerly chasing Instrumentals in All Tempos that would fall in the general range of the following references:

    Stranger Things Theme Song

    Le Matos - Summer Of 84 Soundtrack

    The Thing Theme

    Escape From New York Theme

    Please submit Electronic Instrumentals that have a well-defined 1980s sound, style, and influence. Your submissions should have pulsing, driving beats that give some forward momentum and have some dark and mysterious elements. Analog-sounding synths with a steady Electronic beat could be a great starting point as long as they have that ‘80s appeal going for them.

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded in the 1980s, or they can be recently recorded Instrumentals that are inspired by that era. If you’re going to be composing something for this request, using current-sounding synths or drum machines probably won't work well for this, so bust out those 1980's throwbacks (anybody have a DX-7 collecting dust?) if you really want to add some authenticity to your track!

    All submissions should be about 2-4 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings were not specifically requested, but are always a good idea when pitching to a Music Licensing company. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed. In other words, the recording shouldn’t sound too modern or slick.

    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. 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 Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – No full critiques.

    BLUESY ALT-ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Music Library for a Hit TV Series on MTV.

    They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that could fit stylistically with the following references we got directly from them:

    Lonely Boy by Black Keys

    Ex's and Oh's by Elle King

    Go It Alone by Beck

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumental Cues only.

    Please submit driving, well-composed Alt-Rock Instrumental Cues that are gritty and a little blues-y, but that still have ear-catching melodies. Your submissions should use instrumentation such as (but not limited to) big kick drums, Hand Claps and Acoustic Guitar strums, mixed with big, riffy Electric Guitars. Think overdrive, over distortion!

    While they’re NOT looking for songs with vocals, (non-lyrical) vocal textures/layers are welcome (oohs, aahs, yeahs, etc.)

    Things to Avoid For this request:

    - No Hard Rock / Metal.
    - Nothing too Country, Twangy or Roadhouse Blues.
    - No big leads or overly lead guitar-driven melodies.
    - No EDM Claps. Some synths work, but mostly organic live-sounding work best.

    TAXI Tip: Please be sure any virtual instruments and samples you use sound authentic, current, and not dated!

    Your submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. 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 do an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material for this pitch that’s already signed with any other libraries or publishers. 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 Masters and Copyright to submit. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis. Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, August 26th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190826AR

    Based on similar requests from other clients, we're guesstimating the sync fee range to be somewhere between $150 - $250, depending on the ultimate placements.

    "Bury My Soul" by Epic Score

    “Cryptic” by Mark Moore

    Material that isn't too busy, frenetic, or complex will work best, as it won't step on dialogue in the scenes. Please avoid using any instruments that sound stiff, synthetic, or obviously quantized and MIDI-driven.

    SMOOTH JAZZ INSTRUMENTAL ARTISTS or BANDS are needed by a super well-connected Industry Veteran who was directly responsible for a TAXI member signing a deal with an awesome Jazz Record Label and subsequently becoming a breakout artist a few years ago.

    We're not using references for this opportunity because they might be more limiting than helpful. If you're not already familiar with the leading Smooth Jazz artists, you might not want to submit for this golden opportunity.

    Ideally, this gentleman would like to find incredibly talented artists or bands with a fresh, yet traditional “Smooth Jazz” sound! Please avoid submitting anything that’s avant-garde, experimental, or too outside the Smooth Jazz wheelhouse. You’d be wise to submit THREE pieces per submission, so he can see if you’ve got depth in your writing.

    He's looking for the whole package: a unique, but commercial sound, great musicianship, a killer live show, and Instrumentals that are strong enough to climb to the top of the Smooth Jazz charts, and get tons of spins on Jazz radio and streaming services.

    Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your material well. Artists and bands that already have touring and live show experience, an existing fanbase, and impressive sales and/or streaming figures would get this gentleman excited, but those things aren't an absolute necessity if your material is good enough to kick the collective butts of other Smooth Jazz artists. 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 Instrumentals to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

    Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD.  Include lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, September 13th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190913SJ

    “Smooth Operator” by Sade

    “By Your Side” by Sade

    “The Sweetest Taboo” by Sade

    Recently recorded Songs or old-school-leaning material can both work for this request!

    Give them sultry Jazz Vocal Songs with smooth melodies, laid-back beats, and a solid song structure. Your productions should include instrumentation that’s typical of the genre, and have soulfully expressive vocal performances.

    Lyric themes can vary, but Songs that are romantic and generally about LOVE will work best. Avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity in your lyrics to increase the probability of getting a FORWARD! Do NOT copy the referenced artist or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This company is still pretty new to requesting music from TAXI's members, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet. This is a great time to build a relationship with them! They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of these references which our client gave us:

    “Mi Gente” by J Balvin, Willy William

    “I Can't Get Enough” by benny blanco, Tainy, Selena Gomez, J. Balvin

    Give them well-crafted Latin Pop Songs that have a commercial sound and structure, and would appeal to a broad audience. Your submissions should have unforgettable melodies, killer hooks, and really catchy choruses. Your productions should be top-notch and include some Latin-flavored instruments, rhythms, and grooves. Your Songs can feature vocals performed strictly in Spanish, OR you can use a combination of Spanish mixed with English!

    Your lyric themes can vary, but should be in the general range of the references and other Songs in that ballpark. Try to avoid the use of specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity if you’d like to increase your chances of getting your Songs synced! Do not copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    CONTEMPORARY, EMPOWERING POP SONGS with FEMALE Vocals are needed by a Major Label Producer that’s currently working with a huge, Billboard-charting Artist on her next album!

    They’re looking for Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic wheelhouse of the references we got from the Producer:

    “Sweet but Psycho” by Ava Max

    “Firework” by Katy Perry

    “Dancing Queen” by ABBA

    NOTE: Obviously, the last reference is pretty dated, but the client mentioned that they like the “classic European-style melodies." So, imagine what a contemporary-sounding version of Dancing Queen might sound like if one came out today.

    Please submit mainstream-sounding Pop Songs with big hooks, catchy melodies, and chart-worthy choruses. Having great Vocals from top to bottom will help get this Producer and Artist excited about cutting your Songs.

    Current, radio-ready productions are preferred; however, the Producer will listen to Stripped-Down demos if the Songs are really strong. Even Piano/Vocal or Guitar/Vocal demos need to sound contemporary in their presentation to earn a "forward."

    LYRIC TIP: They’re looking to hear strong, female empowerment lyric themes but no breakup songs, sad songs, or songs with profanity.

    Your recording quality needs to be clean, well balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include Lyrics. Time permitting, the Producer himself may screen some or all of the submissions! All submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190820PP

    They’re looking for Songs in All Tempos that could fit in the general stylistic ballpark of these references they gave us:

    “Issues” by Julia Michaels

    “Scars To Your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara

    “Hey Hey Hey” by Katy Perry

    “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga

    NOTE: They would love to hear from artists that are part of the LGBTQ community, but it's NOT required or mandatory by any stretch.

    For this request, they’re looking to hear from real, working ARTISTS only. You don’t need to have a large following, but an act with a social media presence (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.) is preferred. This show wants to promote the artists and the music they use. They’re open to hearing unreleased tracks, but by the time the show airs, all Songs will need to be on Apple Music, Spotify, and Shazam.

    Give them slick, well-crafted Pop Songs that have all the mainstream appeal of the references above, with catchy melodies, and choruses that can connect with the listener. Your submissions should have a solid Pop structure and polished productions. Be sure your vocal performances are super current-sounding and well-performed from top to bottom.

    This show is about friendship, finding love, and messing everything up along the way!

    They're looking to hear lyric themes like (but not limited to):

    • Chasing dreams / going after what you want
    • Female empowerment / being a boss / living large
    • CONFUSION / LOSS not knowing what do to with life / feeling lost
    • Romance gone awry / complicated romance

    NOTE: The sync fees we were quoted are up to $20,000. However, our experience tells us that the sync fees quoted for this placement are probably based on the show licensing a Song 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, or for music they’d get from a “library.” We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s Song used in this show would more likely be in the $3,500 to $5,000 range per Song. It could go higher, but we think it’s better to be conservative and manage expectations.

    These are Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI A&R person hand-picked by the Music Supervisor – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, August 24th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190824EP

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Listing (#Y190730RB), but they didn’t find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #Y190730RB, please send in different material this time around.

    This Head of A&R is currently on the prowl for some great new acts that would appeal to fans of artists like (but not limited to) Ceraadi, Chris Brown, Drake, SZA, etc., etc., etc.

    They’re looking for Songs in All Tempos that could fit in the general stylistic ballpark of the references they gave us:

    “Good As Hell” by Lizzo

    “Like You” by Asiahn

    NOTE: Ideally, they would love to hear from artists who are part of the LGBTQ community, but it's NOT mandatory or required by any stretch!

    For this request, they’re looking to hear from real, working artists only. You don’t need to have a large following, but an act with a social media presence (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.) is preferred. This show wants to promote the artists and the music they use. They’re open to hearing unreleased Songs; but by the time the show airs, all Songs will need to be on Apple Music, Spotify, and Shazam.

    Give them well-crafted Songs that have all the fundamental elements of current R&B music: strong hooks, infectious melodies, fresh beats, and unforgettable choruses. Be sure your vocals are well performed with soulfully expressive and current-sounding deliveries.

    This show is about friendship, finding love, and messing everything up along the way! They're looking to hear lyric themes like (but not limited to):

    • Chasing dreams / going after what you want.
    • Female empowerment / being a boss / living large.
    • CONFUSION / LOSS not knowing what do to with life / feeling lost.
    • Romance gone awry / complicated romance.

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

Your tracks should use innovative, trendsetting production techniques and stylized sounds to push the creative envelope. Glitchy synths and drums are encouraged. Be sure not to cross the line into anything that sounds overly busy or bombastic though, as that could distract from dialogue in certain scenes.

    All submissions should be two to three minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best. Use them 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.

    NOTE: Each sync fee we were quoted could be up to $20,000. However, our experience tells us that the sync fees quoted for this placement are probably based on the show licensing a Song 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 or for music they’d get from a “library.” We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s Song used in this show would more likely be in the $3,500 to $5,000 range each. It could go higher, but we think it’s better to be conservative and manage expectations.

    These are Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fees and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Masters and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be reviewed on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI Screener who was hand-picked by the Music Supervisor – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, August 24th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190824HH

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.

    CONTEMPORARY ALT-ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a successful Record Label and Publisher who is looking for new acts to pitch to sync opportunities!

    NOTE: This awesome company just recently started running Listings with TAXI, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet!

    They’re on the hunt for well-crafted, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that you’d hear on a playlist with these references they gave us:

    "Red Eyes" by The War On Drugs

    “If You Tolerate This” by Manic Street Preachers

    "Superheated" by New Order

    Quoting Our Source: “Songs must be super modern- sounding. They are not looking for anything that’s Heavy Metal or Classic Rock-sounding. Think along the lines of modern Alt-Rock with more acoustic or electric guitars than electronic elements. Some keyboards are ok, but they shouldn’t be midi-production driven.”

    Please submit original, top-notch, Alt-Rock Songs that are rhythmically and lyrically engaging. Your submissions should have authentic Rock instrumentation with killer rhythm sections, great melodies, and really solid choruses. Keep your vocal performances in the general ballpark of the referenced Songs.

    They didn’t specify any lyric themes; however, if you could imagine hearing your lyric fitting in with the references above, then you’re probably in the ballpark. 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.

    The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Record Label/Publisher. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI Screener handpicked by the Company - No full critiques.

    MODERN INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a successful Record Label and Publisher looking for new acts for sync placements!

    NOTE: This company JUST started running Listings with TAXI, so chances are you don’t have material in their catalog yet!

    They’re on the hunt for well-crafted, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that you might hear on a playlist with these references that came from them:

    "Pretty Pimpin" by Kurt Vile

    "Keep The Change" by Mattiel

    "F*** Up" by Sarah Shook & the Disarmers

    NOTE: They are NOT looking for Top 40 Indie Pop-type stuff. Rather, they're interested in Songs that are built around guitars, live-sounding drums, and maybe even a little bit of an old-school '90s edge and attitude. For further example, think of a modern PJ Harvey:

    "50 Ft Queenie" by PJ Harvey

    Please submit Songs with lots of swagger and Indie appeal. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding Rock band instrumentation and a compelling vocal performance that authentically captures the sensibilities of the genre.

    No specific lyric themes were requested, but staying in the general ballpark of the references and other acts in that wheelhouse might be helpful. Please keep your lyrics universal, and avoid specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for feel, style, and vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Record Label/Publisher. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI Screener with strong ties to the Company – No full critiques.

    MODERN HEAVY METAL BANDS are needed by a hot U.K.-BASED LABEL that's on the lookout for great new talent to sign. They’re looking to find solid acts that would appeal to fans of artists like the following examples the client gave us:

    “Raven's Flight” by Amon Amarth

    “Wash It All Away” by Five Finger Death Punch

    “Scourge of Iron” by Cannibal Corpse

    “Chop Suey!” by System Of A Down

    Please submit Metal Songs that showcase your one-of-a-kind sound and style. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding Rock instrumentation, great musicianship, and growling signature vocals with a unique and identifiable quality. Be sure you have big crunchy metal grooves and powerful arrangements throughout! Having expertly recorded Songs that are "ready for release" (the material might get a re-mix, but the Label has no plans to re-record anything) could get the attention of this label.

    Note: You’d be smart to submit at least THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

    They’re interested in artists and bands that are actively working on their careers. In your bio, please include any impressive info about touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an absolutely amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they are still willing to listen to you!

    Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis, by a TAXI screener that has been handpicked by the Record Label! Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, August 30th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190830HM

    MODERN STONER ROCK / GARAGE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the Owner of a distinguished Indie Record Label.

    Please listen to the references below to get an idea of the range of what could get this really cool Record Label excited:

    “Only You” by The Warlocks

    “If Love Is The Drug” by Brian Jonestown Massacre

    Please submit authentic-sounding Stoner / Psych / Garage Rock Songs that have “RETRO" influenced productions. Instrumentation should feature dirty guitars, groove-driven bass parts, and melodic vocals. Your Songs should be rhythmically, melodically, and lyrically compelling, with a style and approach in line with today’s version of Stoner Rock.

    TAXI Tip: Your Songs should have genre-appropriate productions and recordings – in other words, cool Lo-Fi tracks could work really well for this request! Slick and glossy material will likely not yield great results!

    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 yet 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!

    The deal points will be negotiated directly with the Label. Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, September 5th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190905MR

    Singer / Songwriter

    CURRENT-SOUNDING SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a highly successful EXCLUSIVE Music Library for a variety of Film, TV, and Commercial placements.

    They’re looking for Down-To-Mid-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with these references they provided us:

    “Blackout” by Freya Ridings

    “Don't Worry About Me” by Frances

    Please submit intimate, Singer/Songwriter Songs with great lyrics, emotionally moving melodies, and infectious choruses. Your productions should capture the general vibe and style of the references above.

    Judging from the references they gave us, it’s apparent that the client seems to favor relatively stripped-down piano-driven pieces. You can also submit more fully produced Songs, but don’t go too far outside the box. No matter which you submit, please make sure your vocals are heartfelt, believable, and emotionally moving!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should have some substance and emotional pull. Intimate thoughts (not the sexual variety): introspection, regret, hope, longing, resolve, melancholic, love ending, missing someone, leaving, leaving home, wanting to go home, etc. are all lyric concepts that seem like they might be good for these types of Songs. We encourage you to come up with some of your own! 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. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this pitch CANNOT be signed with other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190828SS
