    Quoting The Source: “Looking for arrangements of well known, Public Domain Christmas songs done in the below genre styles. Just to be clear— we are NOT looking for “original” Christmas songs, or non-public domain cover songs (i.e. NO White Christmas, Jingle Bell Rock, etc).

You’d be wise to stick to the original melody and lyrics so the songs are easily recognizable.

    Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed. In other words, the recording shouldn’t sound too modern or slick.

Please submit high energy Pop Instrumentals that are impactful and primarily driven with percussive elements such as (but not limited too) Stomps, Kick, Claps, Slaps, Snaps, Bings, Taps, and Bangs. Your overall production can be relatively simple, but it needs to be rhythmically engaging and powerful. Feel free to get inventive and creative with the instruments and sounds you use.

    Quoting the Library’s CEO: “Because this request is defined more by instrumentation than anything else, there’s a big range of approaches you can take, and I want you to have plenty of room to get creative and have fun with it.”

    Note: This company has an incredible track record of Big Deal TV Commercial placements under it’s belt, so they’re going to be looking for excellence in what we forward to them. Please note that music that might be good enough for “standard” music libraries probably won’t be good enough for this company! The bar is high, but this is a company you really want pitching your music!

    All submissions should be between 2:00 to 3:00 long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best. Do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form.

    NEW LISTING -- FUN, HIGH ENERGY HIP-HOP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by an A-List Film/TV Music Licensing Company. They’ve just recently started running Listings with TAXI, so chances are you don’t have material in their catalog yet! They’re looking for positive, Mid-to-Up Tempo Instrumentals that are in the general stylistic ballpark of these references we got from the client:

    “I” by Kendrick Lamar: (From 0:47; upbeat electric guitar, shaker - NOT electric guitar solo – piano) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aShfolR6w8

    “Party People” by N.E.R.D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTvm09catNQ

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only. Please submit upbeat Instrumentals that deliver a fun, celebratory, vibe with catchy, feel-good melodies and a driving Hip Hop beat. Your overall Instrumental should have an emotionally upbeat mood, with rhythmic drum patterns that would be commonly heard in Hip Hop Music. Instrumentals that aren’t too busy, frenetic, or overly complex might find more placements because they won’t step on dialogue or voiceovers.

    Note: This company has an incredible track record of Big Deal TV Commercial placements under it’s belt, so they’re going to be looking for excellence in what we forward to them. Please note that music that might be good enough for “standard” music libraries probably won’t be good enough for this company! The bar is high, but this is a company you really want pitching your music!

    TAXI Tip: Old school sounding Hip-Hop can work as well, as they’re looking to focus more on energy and mood. Think of what might could work in TV Commercials where someone is being active, having fun, celebrating, etc.

    All submissions should be between 2:00 to 3:00 long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best. Do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form.

    Universal lyrics will work best, so please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE PIANO-Based ROCK with Male Vocals recorded in the 1970’s or1980’s are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync placements. If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the reference below, or any other popular acts from that era, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Rocket Man” by Elton John: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtVBCG6ThDk

    “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Dhn_Iiqxde

    TAXI Tip: You can submit old masters or 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 finding music that sounds authentic to the time period!

    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 buy out, cash-up-front deals with this company. Several have even received up front 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 Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Friday, October 20th, 2017. TAXI #S171020PR

Your song should have a really compelling vocal performance if you want to get this Music Library’s attention. Emotive vocals with a cinematic vibe could work well for this, but it’s not the only way to go! Haunting, introspective, or tender could work as well.

    Lyric themes can vary, but they should avoid specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity. 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 (great sounding home recordings are fine).
