    COVER VERSION SONGS OF Frank Sinatra's "Young At Heart" with Male Vocals are needed for a $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement in an Indie Feature Film.

    For reference, here’s the original version of "Young At Heart":

    "Young At Heart" by Frank Sinatra

    NOTE: For this request, they don't need you to reinvent the wheel. Simply give them versions that have timeless appeal of the Sinatra Classic.  You’d be wise to not go too left-of-center with your Cover Songs, and stick fairly close to the style and feel of the original lyric and melody, so that the root of the song is recognizable. If you stray too far away from the original, your covers may not be as appealing!

    Please submit well-produced Cover Songs of "Young At Heart" that capture the easy-listening vibe found in the reference above.  Strong musicianship and smooth vocal performances will help you nail this request!

    NOTE: Recently recorded Songs or old vintage master recordings of "Young At Heart" can both work for this pitch.  Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The license fee for this placement is $1,000, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee. You must own your Master to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, June 24th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190624YH

    CHART-WORTHY ADULT CONTEMPORARY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an International, Grammy-Winning Music Producer who has a BIG list of Hits to his name!

    NOTE: This Producer has never requested music from TAXI members, so this is a great chance to get on his radar!

    He’s looking for Songs in All-Tempos that would appeal to fans of the following references, as well as Songs that could appear on a playlist with them:

    “Dancing With A Stranger” by Sam Smith, Normani

    “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” by Adele

    “Love Someone” by Lukas Graham

    Please send him well-structured Songs that have immediately engaging melodies, impactful lyrics, and choruses that have “Top 40-radio hit” written all over it! Your submissions can be really well done, Stripped-Down, Acoustic-Based performances (Piano/Vocal or Guitar/Vocal) or more fully-produced tracks. You’d be smart to have competitive production (on fuller tracks), coupled with confident vocal performances if you want to get this music producer’s attention!

    NOTE: This producer often co-writes with other composers and songwriters. This could be a great opportunity to build a relationship with an A-list writer/producer, possibly leading to co-writes, and killer cuts and placements.

    NOTE FROM THE CLIENT: This company/producer would like you to include some supplemental information on your lyric sheets about what you did on your recordings. Did you produce them? Sing them? Write them? Play the drums or viola on them? All the above? Please let us know on the lyric sheets. Be specific!

    Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or on CD, and include a Lyric Sheet. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, July 10th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190710AC

    Christmas / Holiday

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by a NEW, Music Supervisor-owned Licensing Company. They are currently building a new catalog and need lots of Music!  Please listen to the references our client gave us to get an idea of what might get this Company excited:

    “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande

    “All I Want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey

    “Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber

    Please submit Original Songs that deliver a festive sound, style, and tone. Your productions should utilize arrangements you’d commonly hear in Christmas music, with instruments that include (but aren't limited to) sleigh bells, hand bells, chimes, etc. Having solid vocal performances could also help you nail this request!

    Quoting our client: "Your Songs do NOT have to be current, but they need to convey a holiday sound and mood."

    Non-Religious lyrics will probably work best in this context. Fun, festive, warm, family-themed lyrics might be a great place to start! Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: This Music Supervisor's company typically lands syncs that range from $1,500 - $7,500, depending on the ultimate placement.

    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 other libraries or publishers. 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 by a TAXI A&R person who has been handpicked by the Music Supervisor that owns the Library – Short critiques only.

    They’re looking for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs, in the stylistic ballpark of artists like (but not limited to) Abby Anderson, Maddie & Tae, Lauren Alaina etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get a feel for the style and vibe they're seeking:

    “GOOD LORD” by Abby Anderson

    “Friends Don't” by Maddie & Tae

    “Ladies In The '90s” by Lauren Alaina

    Please submit commercially appealing Songs with Contemporary melodies, attention-grabbing hooks, and a super strong, radio-ready chorus. Be sure your productions have a modern Country sound, coupled with a Pop-leaning style and feel.

    NOTE: Your submissions can be stripped-down demos or full productions, as long as your material is competitive with writers on the Row. Having radio-friendly vocal stylings (and lyrics) with plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity could help get this artist, the record label, and the producer excited about cutting your Songs.

    Your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and don't forget to include your lyric sheet. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only.

Please avoid submitting anything that sounds stiff, synthetic, or MIDI-driven. The more authentic sounding, the better!

    TAXI Tip: While this is the perfect opportunity to show off your composition and arrangement skills, you should still convey one emotion, one mood, and one motif from beginning to end. Having a developmental “arc” that makes your piece feel like it’s moving forward is a good idea.

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.

Your submissions should be rhythmically and melodically engaging, with a tasteful blend of authentic-sounding live instrumentation and some electronic elements. Be sure to have a solid vocal performance that shows off your personality and plenty of awesome attitude!

    Your lyric themes can vary, but the bottom line is, will they work in advertising? Are they positive, uplifting, fun, and the sort of lyric that will make listeners feel good about the product in the commercial? That's the goal! 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.

    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 on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI Screener – Short critiques only.

    ORIGINAL 1960s-Style POP/ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by WEDNESDAY for a Direct-to-Supervisor placement in a Trailer and Promotional Campaign for a Feature Film with an A-List director.

    They’re on the hunt for a Mid-Tempo Song that would work well in place of “Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show” which is currently temped in:

    “Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show” by Neil Diamond

    NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!  Recently Recorded Songs that are Retro-Sounding OR actual Vintage Recordings can work.

    Please send well-performed songs with a 1960s-era style, sound, and vibe. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding instrumentation and production that sounds like it was plucked straight from that era! The film takes place in the '60s, so it has to sound like the real deal!

    Quoting our client: "The song does not have to be vintage, but it needs to sound like it’s from the 1960s. No modern/hybrid takes, please.”

    Lyric themes can vary, as melody and vibe will trump lyrics, but the Supervisor has requested that you stay away from specific storylines. Avoiding specific names, places, dates, times and brands could increase the probability of the Music Supervisor being able to use your song(s).

    TAXI Tip: Please do NOT add sound effects like record pops, scratches, or clicks to make your songs sound older. If they need those EFX, they’ll add them in post-production.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: There’s been no budget given yet, but we would “guesstimate” that the sync range for a for an unknown/independent act’s song would be in the $2,500 - $10,000 range. It could go higher, but we think it’s better to estimate on the conservative side.

    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 on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI A&R person who has been handpicked by the Music Supervisor – Short critiques only.

    ORIGINAL 1960s-Style FOLK/ROCK SONGS are needed by WEDNESDAY for a Direct-to-Supervisor placement in a Trailer and/or Promo for a Feature Film.

    They’re on the hunt for a Mid-to-Up-Tempo Song (Male, Female, or Duet Vocals can all work) that would work well in place of “Straight Shooter” which is currently temped in:

    lot of ISRAELI ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several (up to) $5,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements in a Hit TV Show on a Major Cable Network. She’s looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs for this Military, Special Ops-style show that has plenty of booms, bangs, and chase scenes.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Listing (TAXI # Y190527RR), but the Supervisor didn’t get enough material. She needs a nice, big stash for an entire season of this TV series! If you submitted to TAXI # Y190527RR, please submit different material this time around!

    The Inside Scoop: This Supervisor knows she’s going to need a bunch of Israeli Rock songs for the upcoming season of this show. She’s building a “stash” in advance of post-production. She likes both of the references below and told us that both styles could work, as well as “anything in between.”

    Please send Rock Songs that run the gamut from what we’re calling “traditional Israeli Rock” to harder-edged, testosterone-driven, Hard Rock (with some Middle Eastern flavor) that would work well in the action/shoot ‘em up scenes. Great songwriting, performances, vocals, and production are needed. All Songs need to be Broadcast Quality.

    Lyric Tip: All vocals need to be in Hebrew, and it’s probably a good idea to go with lyrics that touch on themes like winning, victory, surviving, brothers in arms, fighting, and other battle-born concepts that would work during the “kick-ass” scenes. Political, religious, and love songs won’t work for these scenes, so please don’t send any of those!

    For the more traditional (less hard-edged) Israeli Rock Songs, lyric themes can touch on a wider range of lyric ideas as they will likely be used as background source music in bars, car radios, hotel lobbies, elevators, etc. Again, political and religious songs probably won’t work for these placements, so please steer clear!

    Below are references that “bookend” the spectrum of what could work in this show. The references might have political or religious lyrics -- please ignore them. The music is where you should direct your attention.

    Sapari by Orphaned Land

    Psalm 150 by MIQEDEM

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone.

    Because this request precedes the show’s post-production schedule, we are estimating the license fees to range from $2,500-$5,000 per placement. These will be Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements, and you will get 100% of the Sync Fee (no publisher splits), and you will keep 100% of your Master and Composition ownership! You’ll also get 100% of the performance royalties through your PRO. 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 Thursday, June 20th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190620RS

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE POP/ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a really good boutique Music Library for placements in a popular Reality TV Show on MTV.

    They’re looking for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the stylistic ballpark of the references below (which we got from the company):

    “Talk Too Much” by COIN

    “Timebomb” by WALK THE MOON

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

    Please send them well-crafted Instrumental Cues that are in the general vibe and style of the references above, with the kind of instrumentation that you’d typically hear in the Indie Pop/Rock genre. Build your Cues around central melodic ideas, while adding and subtracting instrumentation as they progress to add dynamics and a sense of forward momentum. Please avoid guitar solos, or anything that’s frenetic or overpowering, as it could distract from a scene’s dialog.

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

    This Company offers 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 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 Master 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, July 1st, 2019.  TAXI #Y190701PP

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an International, Grammy-Winning Music Producer who has a BIG list of Hits to his name!

    NOTE: This is the first time this Producer has requested music from TAXI members, so this is a great chance to get on his radar!

    He’s searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall into the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

    “Do I Wanna Know?” by Arctic Monkeys

    “Evil” by Interpol

    Please submit Songs that have an authentic Indie Rock sound, with catchy melodies and super memorable choruses. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding Rock instrumentation that’s engaging on all levels. Be sure your vocals are solid, with an authentically “Indie-sounding” delivery.

    This producer often co-writes with other composers and songwriters. This could be a great opportunity to build a relationship with an A-list writer/producer, possibly leading to co-writes and killer placements.

    NOTE FROM THE CLIENT: The company would like you to include some supplemental information on your lyric sheets about what you did on your recordings. Did you produce them? Sing them? Write them? Play the drums or viola on them? All the above? Please let us know on your lyric sheets. Be specific!

    Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or on CD, Include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI, and must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, July 12th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190712RS

    Singer / Songwriter

    Return to List of Categories

    SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a great Publisher with a very significant track record of placements in TV Commercials.

    They’re looking for great, emotionally upbeat, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the feel good wheelhouse of (but not limited to) the following examples:

    “It’s a Beautiful World” by Tim Myers

    “A Little Color” by The Highfields

    “It's My Life” by Tim Myers

    Please submit well-crafted Acoustic-driven Songs that sound like they'd be awesome in a big TV commercial. Your submissions should have irresistible melodies and a chorus that makes viewers want to sing along, coupled with a great vocal performance. Something as simple as a guitar/vocal could work for this, as long as it’s done well and delivers a fun, emotionally upbeat feeling. Group harmonies or unisons, foot stomps, whistles, and handclaps could also potentially fit nicely for this request, but they aren't required.

    Feelin' good, lovin' life lyrics are just what the doctor ordered for this pitch and might be a great place to start! Please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    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.

    Vintage

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL VINTAGE SONGS in ALL GENRES (recorded between 1940-1969) are needed by the TOP PUBLISHER of VINTAGE MUSIC for Film and TV Licensing.

    This company is very aggressive and incredibly successful in getting Songs placed in Top-Rated TV Shows and big Feature Films. Nobody in the Vintage Music space even comes close to the number of placements this awesome company has nailed, and all reports from our members are that the company is extremely straight-ahead and ethical in its business practices. We concur!

    If you’ve got old Songs that date anywhere from 1940 to 1969, this company wants to hear what you’ve got! Seriously, these folks LOVE older music and get tons of placements with it! Send us your recordings from the '40s, the '50s, and the '60s!

    Folk, Country, Rock and Roll, Pop, Big Band, Jazz, Blues, Orchestral, Doo-Wop, Soul, and any other popular genres you can think of are all fair game for this pitch. The material you submit needs to be written and recorded between 1940-1969!

    This company has even been known to sign old 4-track recordings and bring them back to life. They love finding really good demos that sound like they should have been a hit back in the day but never got signed or released!

    As long as you own or control the Master Recordings and Copyright, you can submit for this Golden Opportunity to get CASH up front and back-end income from any applicable Performance Royalties when the Songs are licensed! You CANNOT submit for friends because you need to own or control the copyright and masters! Have you inherited original old recordings that a parent or grandparent created? Can you prove that you own and control their use? This Publisher is very interested in hearing those too!

    NOTE: If you know somebody who might have material like this and they don’t belong to TAXI yet, please forward this email to them! This company is hungry to find as many oldies as they can, so your friend may want to join TAXI to take advantage of this incredibly rare opportunity!

    Dozens of TAXI members have signed deals and received checks from this company. Some of those checks have been in the $10,000-plus range depending on the catalog size and quality of the material! Many of those deals have been made with TAXI members who never could have imagined that their old recordings would be worth anything in today’s market. Surprise!

    They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to SOUND old. They will only take AUTHENTIC VINTAGE RECORDINGS that were actually recorded back in the day and have copyright dates to prove it! If you’ve got Demos or Masters in any genre, then you could very well have what they need! Worried that your old recordings and production might sound “lo-fi,” dated, and not contemporary enough? They could actually be perfect for this company! They DO NOT want slick, ProTools-generated recordings!

    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 Monday, June 24th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190624VS

    NEW LISTING --

    Do you have SONGS that received airplay and gained traction in the 1990s or before? If you do, we've got a company that would like to connect you with potential investors. Keep reading!

    NOTE: We’re not providing any references for this request, as they’re open to hearing Songs in most of the popular/commercially viable genres including Pop, Rock, Adult Contemporary, Singer/Songwriter, R&B, Folk, Rap, Country, etc.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This company is primarily looking for Vintage Songs with some real traction in their past. They've asked for VINTAGE HITS that have had a considerable number of radio plays and/or sales. If your songs don't have the kind of track record we've described, our client politely asks that you refrain from submitting to this particular request.

    Please submit ORIGINAL, VINTAGE Songs that gained some notoriety when originally released. So if you own old masters that are buried in your attic collecting dust, now it’s time to bust them out! Genre-appropriate instrumentation and production and a well-performed vocal are all a must!

    This Company lets the Artist keep 100% of the money they raise! The specific deal terms will be negotiated between you and the Music Company. Please do not submit songs that are already in other catalogs or signed to any publishing companies as you must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity.

    Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics, photos, and a bio.  All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, July 17th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190717VN
