    ORIGINAL AMERICANA SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several $3,000, Direct-to-Music Supervisor, NON-Exclusive placements in an Action Adventure TV Series. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could stylistically fit on a playlist with these references, which we got directly from the Music Supervisor:

    “Hard Core Troubadour” by Steve Earle

    “Shakin', Shakin' Shakes” by Los Lobos

    “Knockin' On Your Screendoor” by John Prine

    “Catching On” by Son Volt

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “I need songs with great arrangements, well-crafted lyrics, and top-notch performances. These tracks need to feel and sound like the real deal.”

    Give them well-crafted, roots-y songs that have an authentic Americana vibe and feel. Your submissions should have infectious rhythms with really strong musicianship and instrumentation that’s typically found in the Americana genre. Make sure your vocal performance is confident, and as compelling as the reference artists mentioned above.

    NOTE: Recently recorded songs or old-school-leaning material can both work for this request. Don’t go too far back, though! This isNOT a “Vintage” listing.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be stylistically consistent with the references. These songs will likely be used as Background Source music, so lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity are recommended but not necessary.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists/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.

    The estimated license fee for each these placements is $3,000, depending on the ultimate placement. 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 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, please include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Time permitting; the Music Supervisor himself might be able to screen submissions for this request! No promises, but we’re hoping!! Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181127OA

    CONTEMPORARY AMERICANA ARTISTS/BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Supervisor that’s working on a very popular competition-based TV Show franchise. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

    “Feathered Indians” by Tyler Childers

    “Big Sky” by The Wild Feathers

    Give them roots-y songs that have a genuine Americana feel, style, and vibe. Your submissions should have solid musicianship with instrumentation that’s typically found in the Americana genre. Your Songs can be as simple as a well-played acoustic guitar with a compellingly intimate vocal, or you can go for more of a full ensemble sound.

    Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, avoiding references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could make your song more appealing. Keep it universal!

    Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the Master License Fee and any applicable performance royalties.

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo songs that would fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

    “Down Home Blues” by ZZ Hill

    “Sweet Home Chicago” by Blues Brothers

    Please submit original Blues Songs that have solid musicianship and authentic instrumentation, and of course, lyrics about "Home." Going home, leaving home, missing home, cherishing your home... you get the idea, ANYTHING about HOME! Having a killer melody, great guitar sounds (and playing), and a strong, believably bluesy vocal performance are all elements that could make your song appealing to this company.

    NOTE: You can submit recently recorded songs, OR if you’ve got any original vintage pieces (recorded back in the day), they would love to hear them as well. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed

    Country

    Return to List of Categories

    OUTLAW COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Successful, high-end Music Library that primarily pitches to Advertising Campaigns. This company has just started running Listings with TAXI, so it’s very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog. We think this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build a relationship with this company.

    They’re looking for authentic sounding, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    "D.R.U.N.K." by Shooter Jennings

    "Country Heroes" by Hank Williams, Jr.

    “Outlaw State of Mind” by Chris Stapleton

    Please submit well-crafted Songs that reflect the rugged, gritty, spirit of the Outlaw Country style above, with authentic-sounding instrumentation. Your submissions should be interesting and story driven and convey an authentic, down-home Country vibe that would fit on a playlist with the references above. Be sure your vocal performance is believable, with an honest Country vocal delivery.

    NOTE: They’re not looking to hear songs in the style of "Pop" Country artists like Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum or Carrie Underwood. If you have songs that have a style, vibe, or lyrics that are in that ballpark, they won't work for this listing.

    LYRIC Tip: Lyrically they’re looking to hear stories about overcoming problems like (but not limited to) lost love, alcoholism, lack of alcohol, loneliness, fighting with your family, or even being so troubled you are not able to get along with your own dog. (Seriously, they said that!)

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal, with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your song used during that term, you can get your rights back. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. Since this company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener who was handpicked by the Music Library– Short critiques only.

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY POP SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a well-known Music Row Publisher for a Major Label Artist. They’re looking for Up-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of artists and Songs like (but not limited to) Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get a feel for the style and vibe they need:

    “Whiskey Glasses” by Morgan Wallen

    “She Got the Best of Me” by Luke Combs

    Please send them fun, well-structured songs with great energy, catchy melodies, and a visually descriptive, conversational lyric approach. Be sure your vocal performance is believable, with an honest Country delivery that will make this artist and publisher want to cut your song!

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be well-crafted, stripped-down demos or fuller productions, as long as what you send is competitive with what the client gets from writers on the Row.

    The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Publisher on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181127CC

    CHART WORTHY COUNTRY SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Music Row Publisher for a newly signed, up-and-coming Artist on a great Record Label. Please submit great Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to):

    “Workin' Overtime” by Lainey Wilson

    “My Church” by Maren Morris

    “We Should Be Friends” by Miranda Lambert

    Quoting The Publisher: "We need great songs with good energy and attitude. Think a modern Miranda Lambert."

    Please submit well-structured, well-crafted Songs with fresh melodies, killer hooks, clever phrasing, and lyrics that are both conversational and visually descriptive. Your vocals should have a radio-friendly sound and style, with plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity.

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

    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 make sure you include a lyric sheet. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a Nashville-based TAXI screener that’s been handpicked by the Publisher - No full critiques.

    Folk

    Return to List of Categories

    INDIE FOLK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Successful, high-end Music Library that primarily pitches to Advertising Campaigns. This company has just started running Listings with TAXI, so it’s very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog. We think this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build a relationship with this company.

    They’re looking for compelling Indie Folk Songs in All-Tempos that could be found on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to) Mumford & Sons, Angharad Drake, Bright Eyes, Bon Iver, Nadia Reid, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to references they gave us to get in the stylistic ballpark of what they need:

    “Baby” by Angharad Drake

    “First Day Of My Life” by Bright Eyes

    “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons

    "The Arrow and The Aim" by Nadia Reid

    “Holocene” by Bon Iver

    Please submit well-crafted songs that are lyrically and melodically engaging, and that have an authentic “Indie-style” vocal performance. Songs with typical Folk structure and that are primarily acoustic-based should work best. Something as simple as a guitar/vocal could actually work for this, as long as it’s done well! A small ensemble could also work. Group harmonies, foot stomps, and handclaps are all elements that could potentially fit nicely for this request.

    Lyric themes can vary but should be consistent with themes you’d typically hear in the Indie Folk genre. Because this company primarily pitches to advertising, it's a good bet that emotionally positive ideas, concepts, and lyrics will fare better than moody, sad, or downer lyrics. It's not impossible that a song with moody lyrics could get used, but in our opinion, it's much less likely! Lyrics that don’t mention specific names, places, dates, times, brands, or profanity will be appreciated, but are not an absolute requirement. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Genre appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed. In other words, organic recordings that don’t sound too slick or over-produced will probably work best for this request.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal, with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your song used during that term, you can get your rights back. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. Since this company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All
    submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Music Library and must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018.  TAXI #S181120IF

    SONGS FROM FOLK ARTISTS and/or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Supervisor that’s placing music in a very popular competition-based TV Show franchise. They’re looking for great Songs in All-Tempos that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

    “Sign Me Up” by Matt Hartke

    “Empty” by The Sowing Season

    “Louise” by Big Brutus

    Give them well-crafted, current-sounding Indie Folk Songs with emotionally engaging melodies and great musicianship. 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 done well! A small ensemble could also work. Probably best to keep it simple!  Having a well performed and distinctive vocal sound/identity could also help you stand out.

    Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your songs more appealing, but they’re not absolutely necessary for this pitch. Do not copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed

    This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the Master License Fee and any applicable performance royalties.

    MODERN, CONTEMPORARY FOLK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a boutique Music Library with tons of credits in big Feature Films and countless TV Shows and Commercials. They’re eagerly looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall in the general wheelhouse of the following references our client provided to us:

    “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons

    “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers

    Give them well-crafted Folk Songs with emotionally engaging melodies and great musicianship. Songs with an acoustic-based Folk structure and production should work best. Your production style can range from very simple tracks (with just acoustic guitar, handclaps, foot stomps, etc.) to small acoustic-based ensembles, and all the way up to more fully produced tracks. Having a well performed and distinctive vocal sound/identity could also help you stand out.

    NOTE: Please do not fade out the song as your ending. Non-faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are required by this company.

    Lyric themes can vary, but avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity is a good idea. 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.

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

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

    Because this is an Exclusive deal, the music you submit for this pitch cannot already be signed with any other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. Please send as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only.

    Gospel

    Return to List of Categories

    CURRENT-SOUNDING GOSPEL SONGS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by an A-list Record Producer’s Publishing Company. This Producer is always working on and pitching to big artists’ projects, or using songs on his own high-end artists’ productions. He’s looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would appeal to fans of these references, as well as other songs that might comfortably appear on a playlist with them:

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as (TAXI #Y181014GS), and the producer loved what we sent him and asked us to re-run this request again to see if we could find them even more great material. If you submitted to TAXI #Y181014GS, please submit different material this time around!

    “Listen” by Marvin Sapp

    “Well Done” by Erica Campbell

    “Won't He Do It” by Koryn Hawthorne

    Please submit original, well-crafted Songs that have a contemporary, mainstream approach to Gospel. Your song should have super catchy melodies, well-crafted lyrics, and a great big, inspirational chorus. Be sure your production has all the contemporary hallmarks of the references above, with current-sounding instrumentation, rhythms, grooves and beats you might hear in modern Gospel music.

    TAXI TIP: This producer is willing to listen to either stripped-down or fully produced demos! That said, your song has to sound like a hit in the making, especially if you’re submitting a stripped-down demo!

    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. 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.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS of NOVELTY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals that were recorded in 1990 or before are needed by an A-List Film and TV Music Publisher. They are NOT looking for songs that are exactly like the references below. If you’ve got era-accurate recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “The Electric Slide” by Marcia Griffiths

    “YMCA” by Village People

    Quoting The Publisher: “We are basically looking fun/goofy songs that people might associate with dances or parties.”

    We think they should have said weddings and Bar Mitzvahs! We always ending up doing the chicken dance at functions like that, but we never admit it ;-)

    The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They’re much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period.

    TAXI Tip: You can submit old masters OR old demos for this pitch!  Getting the ERA right is key. Recordings that were made before 1990, only!

    This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.

    They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

    Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! 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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Thursday, November 22nd, 2018.  TAXI #Y181122VN

    COVER VERSIONS OF “THE PARTING GLASS” with Male or Female Vocals IN ALL GENRES, STYLES and TEMPOS are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with tons of credits in HIT TV Shows! Please listen to the following references to get a general idea of the range of styles (and others) that could work for this pitch:

    “The Parting Glass” by Ed Sheeran

    “The Parting Glass” by Dubliners

    “The Parting Glass” by The Wailin' Jennys

    NOTE: Your covers can be in commercially viable genres such as Pop, Rock, Adult Contemporary, Blues, Singer/Songwriter, R&B/Soul, Folk, Country, etc.

    Please submit innovative cover versions of “The Parting Glass” that creatively push the envelope a bit. You’d be smart to stay as close to the original lyrics as possible, so the root of the song is recognizable. Having a compelling vocal performance with a strong, confident delivery could also help your song stand out for this pitch! Otherwise, get creative and produce the song in a really cool and different way.

    TAXI Tip: You don’t have to use all of the song’s original melody, necessarily, but the song should be recognizable. If you stray too far away from the original melody or lyric, your cover may not be as appealing.

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

    Do NOT copy the referenced artist/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!

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Covers you submit for this pitch aren’t already signed to another catalog or any other libraries. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50 with the company. There are no performance royalties for cover versions of songs.

    Please submit as many versions of the Song as you’d like, either 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 (PST), on Sunday, November 25th, 2018. TAXI #Y181125PG

    SEXY POP SONGS with Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by TOMORROW for an (up to), $15,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in a popular TV Series on HBO.

    They’re frantically searching for "Contemporary, Groovy," Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references they provided to us:

    “Lonely Lover” by Xenia Rubinos

    "Close Your Eyes” by Kim Petras

    Send them captivating, groove-driven songs with lots of sexy energy that are consistent with the general style and feel of the references, but do not copy them. They're not looking for soundalikes or clones! Vocals that are sensual and well-performed from top to bottom should help your song stand out for this request.

    TAXI Tip: We know that this song will be used in a flirty sex scene, so you’d be wise to have your song lean more towards a mature “groovy/sexy” vibe rather than a Bubblegum, Top 40-Pop sound. Sensual vocals would work well.

    Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, and brands will make your songs more desirable and increase their usability. 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.

    Note: The sync fee range we were quoted was $15,000. However, our experience tells us that the sync fee quoted for this placement is probably based on them licensing a song from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fee could be lower for an unknown, independent act, or music they’d get from a Library. We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s song would be in the $2,500 - $5,000 range. It could go higher, but we think it’s better to estimate on the conservative side.

    This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch. You'll get 100% of the sync fee, and 100% of any applicable performance royalties. Plus, you'll also keep 100% of your Publishing and Master ownership. You need to own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please send 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 that has been hand-picked by the Music Supervisor, and who will be judging based on his "gut" - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018. TAXI #U181120GS

    CONTEMPORARY POP/EDM SONGS with Female Vocals are needed for an (up to) $100,000, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placement in a National TV Commercial for a Major Retail Chain.

    The client is in search of Songs that could fit in the general stylistic ballpark of the references they gave us:

    "Stay” by Zedd, Alessia Cara

    “The Middle” by Zedd, Maren Morris, Grey

    Note: You’d be wise to submit material that stays close to the TEMPO of the reference tracks, which is between 100 and 110 bpm. Please avoid sending in any knockoffs or sound-alikes. Your submissions should be inspired by the tempo and “vibe” of the references.

    Please send A+ Pop/EDM Songs that have a great song structure, big hooks, and a really catchy chorus. (Just an educated guess on our part, but we think the choruses of the references are the "red meat" for what they're looking for). Your submissions should have a stellar vocal performance, and polished production with a very modern feel and instrument sounds. Take note that both references have really cool synth and bass sounds! The vocal sound and approach appears to be a big factor in both songs as well.

    Lyric Tip: They’re looking for emotionally upbeat lyrics about loving life and being independent, as well as looking and feeling happy and satisfied. You’d be smart to avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase your chances of getting your song used!

    TAXI TIP: Please remember that LESS is more. If you aren’t familiar with how to craft a lyric or hook for branding/marketing uses, you’d be smart to ramp up your education on just how that's done! Before submitting to this request, try watching several ads by big retail chains like Walmart, Target, Kmart, Kohl's, TJ Maxx, etc.

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

    The estimated license fee is between $75,000 - $100,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Ad-Agency pitch. No Publisher Splits. You would get 100% of the income. You’ll keep 100% ownership of the Copyright and Master Recording, but we expect that you won’t be able to license your song for any other Commercials for the duration of the term 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 - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Sunday, November 25th, 2018. TAXI #Y181125PE

    NOTE: Please do not fade out the song as your ending. Non-faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings required by this company.

    RADIO-READY POP SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Major Record Label for a Chart-Topping DJ Act that’s searching for their next single! Send them current-sounding Songs in All-Tempos that you wouldn’t be surprised to hear on the same playlist as acts like Cash Cash, Flume, The Chainsmokers etc., etc., etc.

    “Aftershock” by Cash Cash ft. Jacquie Lee

    “Never Be Like You” by Flume ft. Kai

    “Honest” by The Chainsmokers

    Quoting Our Source: “This act is moving their style into more Down-tempo and rhythmic electronic songs, so they’re looking for Pop records that can be turned into Down-tempo electronic records. Think Chainsmokers meets Flume.”

    Please submit fresh Pop songs that have plenty of rhythmic and melodic ear candy.

Submissions with contemporary sounds and production techniques will have a much better chance of landing this request! Make sure your vocal performance is really strong and able to stand its own with the references above (and other acts like them).

    NOTE: Having a well-produced song could help get the DJ excited about re-cutting your song, however, it’s very likely he’ll be contributing to the production of your song.

    Punk

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL, POP PUNK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals Recorded BEFORE the year 2005 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing. If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, or other acts in the Pop Punk genre from 2005 or earlier, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “All The Small Things” by blink-182

    “My Friends Over You” by New Found Glory

    “Basket Case” by Green Day

    You can submit old masters OR old demos for this pitch. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They’re much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period!

    This Publisher is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and big Feature Films when they need music that is authentically from a particular time period. The Publisher pays you upfront for the master rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share of the publishing and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization.

    This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.

    They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

    Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit as many songs online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Monday, November 26th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181126PP

    They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on playlists with acts like Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Leikeli47, etc., etc., etc.

    “Chun-Li” by Nicki Minaj

    CONTEMPORARY RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Supervisor that’s looking for new music for a very popular competition-based TV Franchise. Send them Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that you’d expect to hear on playlists with artists like:

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

    “No Stylist” by French Montana ft. Drake

    “Money” by Cardi B

    “Better Now” by Post Malone

    Please submit cool, ready for prime time Rap/Hip-Hop Songs with rhythmically compelling beats, clever melodic content, and a vocal delivery that has plenty of swagger and attitude.

    No specific lyric themes were requested, so you'd probably be smart to keep your lyrics in the ballpark of what you’d normally hear in the Rap/Hip-Hop genre. Of course, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song easier to use and more appealing.

    NOTE: This Supervisor wants songs that sound like they come from real artists, and not the type of songs that often come from Music Libraries. Authenticity is the key, as the songs get featured in this hit TV show!

    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 any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed

    Rock

    Return to List of Categories

    1970s-STYLE SOFT ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by TOMORROW for an (up to), $5,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in a TV Series on HBO. They’re searching for Mid-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference they provided to us:

    “Mama Told Me Not to Come” by Three Dog Night

    NOTE: The Music Supervisor is looking for a Song that would work well as a replacement for “Mama Told Me Not to Come,” which is currently temped in. Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Please submit Original Soft Rock Songs that capture the essence of the classic music released during that era, and that reflect the overall vibe of the referenced track. Your submissions should have solid musicianship and authentic-sounding Rock band instrumentation, great lyrics, and a compelling chorus that brings it all home. Be sure your vocal is well performed from top to bottom! Your submissions can be actual Vintage masters recorded in the 1970s, or they can be new songs that have been recently recorded and just inspired by that era.

    TAXI Tip: We know that the song used in this scene will be coming out of a jukebox at a seedy bar. A drag queen is on the dance floor dancing by herself and it’s a mixture of ‘a little sexy’ and ‘a little off.'

    Because this song will be for a background source placement (ostensibly coming out of a jukebox), the lyric themes aren’t critically important. That said, song lyrics that are more general and universal are usually easier to place. Please do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $5,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch. You'll get 100% of the sync fee, and 100% of any applicable performance royalties. Plus, you'll also keep 100% of your Publishing and Master ownership. You need to own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please send 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 that has been hand-picked by the Music Supervisor, and who will be judging based on his "gut" - No full critiques.

    CLASSIC, MOODY POP/ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an (up to) $1,000, Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film. They’re looking for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs (newer Retro-sounding recordings or Vintage recordings can both work) that are in the wheelhouse of this reference the Music Supervisor gave us:

    “Crying” by Roy Orbison

    Note: The Music Supervisor is currently looking for a Song that would work well as a replacement for “Crying,” which is currently temped in. To be clear: They’re NOT looking for clones or sound-alikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Please send them well-crafted songs with a timeless, early 1960's sound that generally reflects the vibe of the referenced song. Songs should maintain a similar moody and dramatic sound, in terms of structure, melody, and production.

    Lyric Tip: We know that this song will be used in a scene where a character has been accidentally shot, as characters realize that the gun was actually loaded. Ideally, they would love to find something that has a classic sound but that also matches the shocking and tragic tone of the situation. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity could give you some edge, but we don’t think they’re an absolute necessity.

    Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this placement is between $500 - $1,000, depending on the ultimate placement. 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 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 - No full critiques. Somebody from the Music Supervisor’s team is slated to screen submissions for this, time permitting.

    INDIE GARAGE ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an (up to) $1,000, Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement as the Opening Title Music in an Independent Feature Film. The Supervisor is on the hunt for Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark and vibe of the reference the Supervisor gave us:

    “My Boys” by Twin Peaks

    NOTE: The Music Supervisor is currently looking for a Song that would work well as a replacement for “My Boys” which is temped in. To be clear: They’re NOT looking for clones or sound-alikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No.

    Quoting The Music Supervisor: "This song needs to be Up-Tempo, fun, and energetic to start the movie on a fun note."

    Please submit songs with an authentic Garage Rock sound, great melodies, and a vocal signature that has an identifiable “Indie” quality. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding Rock instrumentation with solid musicianship in the general ballpark of the vibe and feel of the reference.

    TAXI Tip: This Music Supervisor used a bunch of songs from TAXI members in the last film she worked on :-)

    They didn’t specify any lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. It just makes it easier for a Music Supervisor to use it because it won't conflict with the film's story or script! 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. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this placement is between $500 - $1,000, depending on the ultimate placement.

    ORIGINAL, Late 1970's/Early 1980's EASY LISTENING-Style SOFT ROCK/YACHT ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Top Shelf, EXCLUSIVE, A-List Music Library for a variety of TV, Film, Trailer, Promo, and Commercial placements.

    Please submit recently recorded Retro-Sounding Songs (or Vintage recordings that were recorded back in the day) that would fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got directly from the Music Library:

    “Biggest Part Of Me” by Ambrosia

    “Baby Come Back” by Player

    “A Horse With No Name” by America

    “Stuck In The Middle With You” by Stealers Wheel

    Please send them original Soft Rock songs that have a genuine 1970's or early 1980's sound and style. Your submission should have authentic Instrumentation, a solid song structure, and a vocal performance that sounds like it came straight out of that classic Soft Rock era. Think of the type of music you would hear on an AM Gold playlist, and if you think your song(s) would fit seamlessly on it, send them in!

    NOTE: Your submissions can be actual Vintage masters recorded in the 1970s or early 1980s, or they can be songs that have been recently recorded and just inspired to sound like that era.  Authentic, or authentic-sounding, are both acceptable for this pitch.

    Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity might give you some edge, but we don’t think they’re an absolute necessity. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Era-appropriate 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 Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short critiques only.

    INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by an EXCLUSIVE A-List Music Library with an impressive list of TV, Film, and Commercial placements. They’re looking for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs in the stylistic ballpark of the references below that we got from the company:

    “Young Men Dead” by The Black Angels

    “The Wanting” by J. Roddy Walston & The Business

    “Same Days” by J. Roddy Walston & The Business

    Give them authentic sounding Indie Rock Songs that generally reflect the vibe and feel of the references above. Your submissions should have a great vocal performance, with solid melodies, and a compelling chorus.

    TAXI TIP: Your Song should authentically reflect the raw and hazy, “Indie” aesthetic that the referenced songs share. Having fuzzy guitars, mellow bass parts, and groovin’ drums could all make your submissions appealing to this library.

    NOTE: Please avoid any instruments in your production that sound synthetic, stiff, or obviously MIDI-driven. The more believable and authentic sounding, the better! This library gets lots and lots of really great placements in Films and TV Commercials, so if you’d like to get more than reality show placements, this could be your ticket!

    No specific lyric themes were requested, so anything that sounds like what you’d normally hear in the Indie Rock genre could potentially work. Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your songs more appealing. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.
