    ADULT CONTEMPORARY/POP ARTISTS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Industry Veteran who’s just signed a joint venture/imprint deal with a Major Record Label and is currently looking for artists to sign. Please listen to the references below to get a general idea of the sound and style of what might get him excited:

    “Hello” by Adele: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQHsXMglC9A

    “Castle On The Hill” by Ed Sheeran: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0ibBPhiaG0

    “Breathing Underwater” by Emile Sande: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye-3d2QCz2o

    Please submit solid songs with great structure, fresh, well-crafted lyrics, lots of current sounding ear candy in all sections, and of course, a killer chorus that screams HIT! Having a great vocal performance with tons of personality and attitude could help you nail this, assuming all the other elements are there!

    Note: He asked for THREE songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

    Please be sure to include any touring, fan base, or sales, streaming, or impressive social media figures you have in your bio. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out 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! All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, October 29th, 2017. TAXI #Y171029PA

    ORIGINAL SONGS from new ADULT CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS, with Male or Female Vocals are needed for an extremely high-visibility “station” on Apple Music. If selected, your music would be played in regular rotation with artists like (but definitely not limited to), Adele, Sam Smith, Leona Lewis etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the references the client gave us below to get in the general stylistic range of the type of songs they’re looking for:

    “Hello” by Adele: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQHsXMglC9A

    "Stay with Me" by Sam Smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB-5XG-DbAA

    “Thunder” by Leona Lewis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfYC6HgiQ-c

    Quoting The Source: “Song and sound presentations should be strong. A polished vocal performance is very crucial.”

    This is an incredible opportunity to get your music featured in over 100 countries, and have it heard by over 17 MILLION listeners. We know that virtually anybody can get their music on iTunes and a host of other distribution platforms, but if your music is on this particular station, the exposure you’d have could very well be career-changing! At the very least, this would be a great highlight to add to your bio, press kit or social media.

    While we cannot promise anything, the exposure you could get on this particular station goes beyond the public. Virtually all of the Major Label A&R Executives would see that you’ve been included on this playlist, and it’s hard to imagine that wouldn’t cause some of them to reach out to you personally. Again, no promises are being made by us (TAXI), but you’ve got to know that if we’ve only run a small handful of non-paying Industry Listing during our 25-year history, that our gut feeling about this one is very strong!

    Please submit Songs with top-notch songwriting, contemporary melodies, and a hit-worthy chorus that has tons of commercial appeal. Your song should be emotionally engaging, and instantly relatable to fans of this genre. Your vocal performance should have a strong, confident delivery that’s so competitive that it would fit seamlessly on a playlist with the other multi-platinum chart toppers who are on it! Be sure your production is current and strong enough to be competitive as well.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. You can ONLY submit material that you have the legal right/license to submit and perform publicly, and you can NOT submit any material that includes any unauthorized samples of any music or media not owned or controlled by you.

    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 is a long-time, high-level A&R veteran. Feedback will be limited to primarily whether or not the A&R person thinks your material is competitive enough in its current form to be on a chart with multi-platinum, chart-topping artists! The bar for this pitch will be very high, but the rewards could potentially be career-changing. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, November 5th, 2017.

You should have an engaging vocal performance and style that would also be appealing to the little tykes. Instrumentation and genre can vary, but should be something kids would gravitate to (and parents would probably hate after they hear it 500 times). You’d be wise to stick to the original melody and lyric of the song(s) you choose to cover so they’re familiar to listeners.

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be as simple as a Guitar/Vocal, Piano/Vocal, Ukulele/Vocal, or a fuller production, as long as your overall song is jovial, fun, and lighthearted.

    Do not copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Genre 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 (Master License) fees will be split 50/50 with the company. There are no performance royalties for covers.

Stripped-down, guitar/vocal or piano/vocal performances can work for this pitch if they’re incredibly well performed and produced. Be sure your overall vocal performance is heartfelt, honest, and sincere.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be inspiring and uplifting. Please steer clear of submitting anything that’s too sad or melancholy. Avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably work best for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form.

Be sure to have a cool, Pop vocal performance that’s solid from start to finish, and is in the general stylistic ballpark of the examples and other songs like them.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be consistent with themes commonly heard in current Christmas music. Fun, festive, non-Religious lyrics will probably work best. 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.

    ORIGINAL HOLIDAY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for an (up-to) $8,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in a Thanksgiving Special on a Popular Cable Network.

    They’re open to hearing Songs in just about any genre, ranging from (but not limited too) Singer/Songwriter, Folk, Pop, Old-Timey Standards, R&B, Soul etc., as long as it’s Mid-to-Up Temp and feels Sentimental, Warm, and/or Tender.

    Songs should have a holiday sound and feel, but they do not have to be Christmas specific. Please listen to the following references to get an idea of the various styles that could work, but don’t limit yourself, these are just some examples:

    “Thankful” by Kelly Clarkson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7Ah0rtd_kM

    “Christmas Eve” by Justin Bieber: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbh7RFWS4Ro

    “We Are Family” by Sister Sledge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBpYgpF1bqQ

    Give them original, well-crafted Songs that have solid production, a great vocal performance, and an overall sound, feel, and vibe that will get listeners in the spirit of the holiday season. Your production can range from simple arrangements (like a Ukulele and claps), up to bigger, more fully produce arrangements. Quoting the Source: “Polished vocals are very important. They’re looking for songs that have amazing vocal performances.”

    Lyric Tip: Lyrics about love, joy, enjoying family and friends, celebrating, etc., would all work great for this pitch. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended.

    Do not copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    We think the $8,000 sync fee is what this company would pay for a song from a Major publisher and a big deal writer or artist. Our experience is that indie artists and songwriters will probably get paid what the production company would pay for a song from a Music Library; somewhere in the $1,500 - $3,000 range. We might be overly conservative in our thinking, but better safe than sorry!

    The estimated license fee for this use is up $8,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll get 100% of the sync fee, you’ll keep 100% of your Publishing and Master ownership, and you’ll also get 100% of any applicable performance royalties. No Publisher splits! You must own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD.

    NEW LISTING -- ORIGINAL, EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT CHRISTMAS SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for an (up-to) $2,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements in Trailers, TV Shows, and Films on a well-known Cable Network that has used songs from TAXI members before! They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of (but not limited to) the following references:

    Please submit original songs (no covers, please) that embody the Christmas and Holiday spirit with engaging melodies, and a super memorable chorus. Your production/instrumentation should convey a Christmas/Holiday mood, style and vibe with emotionally up-beat melodies and solid musicianship. Little Christmas-y accents like bells, glockenspiel or tubular bells could give your submission some added spark, but they’re not absolutely necessary. We’d advise that you don’t get carried away…. Sometimes less is more ;-) Be sure to have a vocal performance that’s solid from start to finish, and is in the general stylistic ballpark of the examples.

    Lyric themes should be consistent with themes commonly heard in current Christmas music. Lyrics that lean more toward the secular side are often more universally useable. They’re not anti-religious lyrics, there are just less scenes to use them in, typically. 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 (Great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is $2,000, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch.

    CURRENT SOUNDING DANCE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a large NON-Exclusive Music Library that gets tons of placements in TV Shows, Films, and TV Commercials. They’re on the hunt for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the references below:

    Please submit well-crafted songs that have a current sounding melodic structure, highly danceable beats, attention-grabbing ear-candy, and a really fresh vocal performance. Your overall production should be fresh and modern, with current sounding Electronic elements throughout, and a chorus that really shines.

    TAXI TIP: Consider including some cool vocal samples and vocal chops to create more ear candy, but that’s not a requisite.

    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. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Company offers a NON-Exclusive 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch.

    CHILLOUT SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by Music Licensing Company with a huge list of placements in Film, TV, Commercials, and Trailers. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that would fit on a playlist with the references below:

Your production should have modern, creative instrumentation, with smooth, mellow grooves that generally matches the vibe and feel of the references mentioned above.

    Lyric themes can be about anything you’d normally hear in this genre, but you’d be smart to keep them pretty PG-rated, and avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Company offers a NON-Exclusive 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share.

    Folk

    Return to List of Categories

    RHYTHMIC INDIE FOLK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Film/TV Music Licensing Company. They’re looking for great, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of acts like (but not limited to) tUnE-yArDs, The Lumineers, Anna Kendrick, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get in the general ballpark of what they need:

    “Water Fountain” by tUnE-yArDs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbiFcPhccu8

    “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvCBSSwgtg4

    “Cups” by Anna Kendrick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmSbXsFE3l8

    Please submit well-crafted Songs with catchy, modern melodies, fresh lyrics, and a chorus that’s super memorable. Having a punchy, rhythmic quality (cups, claps, stomps, smacks, whacks, or hits) should work in your favor for this pitch! Your overall production can be relatively simple, or it can have a fuller band sound, but it should be somewhat consistent with the references above. Having a solid vocal performance that has a cool, Indie appeal should help get your song to the top of the list for this pitch! Awesome drums/percussion will get you to the top with some whipped cream and a cherry!

    Quoting the Library’s CEO: “A big part of this pitch is vocals + drums. A back and forth feel, as well as interaction of vocals and drums that has a really powerful effect is what we’d like your members to channel.”

    Note: This Company has an incredible track record of Big Deal TV Commercial placements under its 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!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should have an approach that’s in the general wheelhouse of the references above. Simple, direct lyrics could work better than complicated metaphors. Avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity is also 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. Genre-appropriate 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 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.

    ORIGINAL SONGS from new INDIE FOLK/ROCK ARTISTS, with Male Vocals are needed for an extremely high-visibility “station” on Apple Music. If selected, your music would be played in regular rotation with artists like (but definitely not limited to), Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, Vance Joy etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the references the client gave us below to get in the general stylistic range of the type of songs they’re looking for:

    “Lover Of The Light” by Mumford & Sons https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMJUbZrNnA8

    “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvCBSSwgtg4

    “Fire and the Flood” by Vance Joy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKmWd8DPrEc

    This is an incredible opportunity to get your music featured in over 100 countries, and have it heard by over 17 MILLION listeners. We know that virtually anybody can get their music on iTunes and a host of other distribution platforms, but if your music is on this particular station, the exposure you’d have could very well be career-changing! At the very least, this would be a great highlight to add to your bio, press kit or social media.

    While we cannot promise anything, the exposure you could get on this particular station goes beyond the public. Virtually all of the Major Label A&R Executives would see that you’ve been included on this playlist, and it’s hard to imagine that wouldn’t cause some of them to reach out to you personally. Again, no promises are being made by us (TAXI), but you’ve got to know that if we’ve only run a small handful of non-paying Industry Listing during our 25-year history, that our gut feeling about this one is very strong!

    Please submit well-crafted Songs that sound like an authentic, current Indie Folk act, with instrumentation that’s typical of the genre, and a vocal performance that’s really compelling from start to finish. Your submissions can be solely Acoustic-based, or have a Folk/Rock edge.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. You can ONLY submit material that you have the legal right/license to submit and perform publicly, and you can NOT submit any material that includes any unauthorized samples of any music or media not owned or controlled by you.

    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 is a long-time, high-level A&R veteran. Feedback will be limited to primarily whether or not the A&R person thinks your material is competitive enough in its current form to be on a chart with multi-platinum, chart-topping artists! The bar for this pitch will be very high, but the rewards could potentially be career-changing. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Wednesday, October 25th, 2017.

    “Well Done” by Erica Campbell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyvup7wcts8

    “Everlasting God” by William Murphy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQlDLMaWHQA

    Please submit soulfully expressive Gospel songs that are deeply inspiring and emotionally engaging. Your song should have genre appropriate production and instrumentation with infectious grooves, contemporary rhythms, and Gospel-Style chord progressions. Amazing vocals are critically important for this pitch, so be sure your overall performance reflects the vocal abilities of the referenced artists above.

    You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fanbase, or impressive sales or 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, he’d still like to hear you! Please submit three Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    VINTAGE COVER SONGS in all Styles with Male or Female Vocals Recorded in 1950’s – Mid 1990’s are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV Sync licensing. Your COVERS can range from stripped-down acoustic interpretations to full productions, and anything in between. The sky's the limit for this pitch.

    Send a full-length version of the song, and stick to the original melody and arrangement so it’s instantly identifiable. They’re really not looking for anybody to reinvent the wheel so much as simply giving them a version that's authentically recorded in the era.

    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!

    You only need to own or control the 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 on a Yes/No basis - Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Wednesday, October 25th, 2017. TAXI #Y171025VC

Build your Cue around a central melodic idea, and add and subtract layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses to keep it from sounding too linear or repetitive.

Your Instrumentals can use everything from 808-style kick drums to big, unique-sounding synth parts, as long as your piece stays consistent within the contemporary Hip Hop sound.

    “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey: (Starting at 0:50) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXQViqx6GMY

    “Jingle Bell Rock” by Glee: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfLf7A_-1Vw

    “Wrapped In Red” by Kelly Clarkson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IFfZRVRbqM Although the references above have vocals, this pitch is for instrumentals only. Please submit original, festive, Instrumental Cues that delivers a Christmas sound, style and tone. Your submission should have a top-notch production and can include instruments you’d commonly hear Christmas music such as (but not limited too): sleigh bells, hand bells, chimes, etc. Build your Cue around a festive central melodic motif, while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses.

    All submissions should be at least 1- 2 minutes in length. Non-Faded/Buttoned endings with a natural ring out will work best. Do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use the references only as general guide for overall feel, texture and tone. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is $300, depending on the ultimate use. 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.

    ACOUSTIC-Driven SINGER/SONGWRITER or INDIE FOLK-Style INSTRUMENTALS are needed for an (up-to) $35,000, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placement in a National TV Commercial for a Worldwide Athletic Shoe/Apparel brand. They’re looking for mainstream friendly, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals in the stylistic ballpark of artists like (but not limited to) Bearfoot and The Lumineers, etc. Please listen to the following references they gave us to get yourself in the general ballpark.

    “Time Is No Medicine” by Bearfoot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcbKfuiJjTc

    “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvCBSSwgtg4

    Although the references above have vocals, this pitch is for instrumentals only. Please submit well-crafted Instrumentals that have catchy, creative melodies, and deliver a fun, emotionally upbeat feeling. Your production style can range from very simple tracks with just acoustic guitar (and possibly a bit of electric guitar), handclaps, and foot stomps; to small acoustic-based ensembles; and all the way up to more fully produced tracks. This iconic sports brand is known for being casual and active, so try to think of a style that would reflect both.

    Quoting The Source: “The track needs to be acoustic driven with a Singer-Songwriter or Acoustic Pop style. Your Instrumental must be fun, energetic, and catchy!”

    Note: We know that this listing’s source used Acoustic Pop as one of the genre descriptors. We took a vote in the office and we’re calling it Indie Folk. Whatever you want to call it, it’s primarily acoustic, it’s fun, upbeat, cool, hip, maybe somewhat roots-y-ish – yep, we invented that word! Your Instrumental should lend itself to a TV commercial that will probably feature pretty (and handsome), twenty-somethings doing outdoors-y stuff while wearing awesome gear from this world-wide brand.

    What do you think that would sound like?

    Listen to the references and try to “triangulate” that sound. They’re not looking for clones… been there, done that. To nail this, you’re going to need to come up with something fresh but familiar, different, but not too different. Ad agencies drive us crazy too, but they pay really well!

    All submissions should be between 2:00 to 3:00 long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will likely work best. Do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (Great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee is up to $35,000, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Direct-to-Ad-Agency pitch. You’ll keep 100% ownership of the Copyright and Master Recording, but you won’t be able to license your Instrumental for any other Commercials for the duration of the term of 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 Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a screener hand-picked by the Ad Agency. Short critiques only.

    Give them well-played Classical Piano Cues that sound indistinguishable from the real thing (the piano sounds, that is!), with wonderful, inviting, and emotionally upbeat melodic lines. Build your Cue around a central melodic theme that shows off your musicianship. Anything that is obviously synthetic, quantized, or MIDI-driven won’t work for this pitch. Gotta sound like the real deal for this pitch!

    All submissions should be about Two Minutes long (give or take) with non-faded endings. Do NOT copy the referenced examples 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).

Your overall production quality should be slick and polished, with genre appropriate instrumentation. Your submission can have some simple, non-lyrical Vocal parts like: “whoas,” “yeahs,” “heys,” “ohhhs,” etc., but they’re not absolutely necessary… just an option!

    Your submissions should be about 2 minutes long, or longer. Non-faded, buttoned endings and natural, ring out endings will probably be best. 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.

Having a contemporary sound and vibe is really important for this request, and having a few unique breaks and builds to add interest to your submission is a good idea. Your production values should be competitive with the referenced artists to get them excited about cutting vocals over your Instrumental.

    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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Tuesday, October 31st, 2017. TAXI #Y171031PI

    ACOUSTIC-based SINGER/SONGWRITER INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a great Music Library with a long, long list of TV, Film, and Commercial placements. They’re on a mission to find a bunch of Mid-Tempo-ish Instrumental Cues that could stylistically fit on a playlist like this:

    “Two of Us on the Run” by Lucius: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHXYn9MCa08

    “Can't Make You Love Me” by Bon Iver: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbtUs4EIQIE

    “Change It All” by Harrison Storm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOOW95P8LB4

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only! Give them intimate, well-crafted, organic-sounding Instrumental Cues that are in the general wheelhouse of the references above with authentic sounding acoustic-based instrumentation. Your production should be focused around acoustic guitar or piano, with arrangements that vary from a compelling solo instrumental, to a fuller ensemble sound. Build your Cue around a central melodic idea and keep it interesting by adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as it progresses. Avoid using any instruments that sound stiff or MIDI-driven, as well as anything that could distract from dialog in a scene.

    TAXI Tip: Note how the reference material doesn’t sound like 1970’s “strummy” acoustic Singer/Songwriters? Modern Singer/Songwriters are often sort of ethereal sounding… sort of float-y and dreamy. That’s what this company is looking for: Simple and ethereal. The vocal is often the thing that makes them sound like that, so your job is to come up with some sort of simple melody done with something other than a voice to fill that need and create that “vibe.”

    TAXI Tip 2: Cool reverb is also part and parcel to this modern sound. Be careful to use just enough and not overdo it!

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    They offer an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all 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 any other Libraries or Catalogs. 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.

Build your submissions around a catchy central melodic theme, and keep it interesting by layering electronic elements in and out as your Instrumental Cue progresses to keep it dynamic and forward moving. Be sure to throw in some cool breaks, drops, and pieces of ear candy to help make your Cue exciting and cutting edge, but make sure your Cue doesn’t become so frenetic or busy that it could distract from dialog.

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Solid edit points and buttoned/stinger endings are strongly encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

Give this Music Library Instrumental Cues that have a tight, in-the-pocket rhythm section, with some vintage-sounding instruments, and a contemporary production style. Get them excited with some awesomely funky bass lines, solid drum parts, and super-funky rhythm guitar and keyboard parts. Your production can contain live and/or electronic instrumentation, as long as it has as much funk flavor as the referenced acts mentioned above!

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Solid edit points and buttoned/stinger endings are strongly encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    Please send them well-crafted Instrumental Cues that reflect the fun and quirky range of styles in the references above. Build your Cue around a central melodic theme while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as it progresses to add dynamics, interest, and some forward momentum. You’d be smart to avoid submitting anything that’s too frenetic or overly busy for this pitch, as it could distract from a scene’s dialog.

    TAXI Tip: Many music libraries already have a lot of Dramedy-style Cues, so this company is looking for material that sounds fresh, with that little something extra that will make TV editors gravitate to it.

    Your submissions should be about 1:30 in length, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

Give them current-sounding R&B Instrumental Cues with a solid groove that are rhythmically and melodically compelling, with a modern sound that’s right down lane of the references. Structure your Cue around a simple but catchy melodic theme, while adding and subtracting instrumentation as it progresses to keep it dynamically compelling and interesting from top to bottom. Your Instrumental Cue can have some Hip-Hop influence, but please make sure it mostly maintains an R&B feel, vibe, and style.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE 1950’s - 1960’s SWING JAZZ SONGS with Male Vocals 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 reference below, or any other popular acts from that era, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Oh Marie” by Louis Prima: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2G3_wuprKA

    “Angelina” by Louis Prima: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqA4IviTEwQ

    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!

    NOTE: Lyrics can be in English, Italian, or both as language is not that important – They’re looking more so for authentic recordings in that style and 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.

    HIGH ENERGY POP INSTRUMENTAL TRACKS with some Hip-Hop Influence are needed for a Female Rapper to write lyrics and sing over for Film, TV, and Advertising placements going through a High-End Music Licensing Company. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals in the broad stylistic range of the references below:

    TAXI Tip: They’re looking for tracks that are fun, bouncy, and more on the “positive” side, rather than anything that’s dark or dismal.

    “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqyT8IEBkvY

    “Bad Man” by Pitbull Ft.Robin Thicke, Joe Perry, Travis Barker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjQGYSEHtto

    “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPf0YbXqDm0

    Quoting The Client: “Ideally, I’d like the tempo to be at 108 bpm at the absolute slowest to 146 bpm, or even as high as 160 bpm! Basically, we want to push the tempo as much as possible until the track just starts falling apart.” We take that to mean, it’s so fast it doesn’t sound right any more.

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for instrumentals only! Please submit well-crafted Instrumentals that are upbeat, pop-y with some personality, and have the feel and production style that would put it in the range of the references. Submissions that have catchy melodies, contemporary instrumentation, and some Hip-Hip elements blended in should help you get this artist’s and the Music Licensing Company’s attention.

    Note: You will likely be entering into a co-write situation with your tracks, as the artist or another writer could be contributing melody and lyrics to go with your Instrumental Track.

    Your overall production values should be stellar to get this artist excited about recording her lyrics and melody over your Instrumental. 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.

    CURRENT SOUNDING POP/DANCE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for an (up to) $7,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement in a NEW TV Show on a Big Cable Network. They’re looking for energetic, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that you’d expect to hear on a playlist with the following references they gave us:

    “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato: ` https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MsvER1dpjM

    “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber: (They want English lyrics only.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72UO0v5ESUo

    “Would You Ever” by Skrillex & Poo Bear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-SurvChGFk

    Give them infectious, slick, well-crafted songs with catchy melodies and a chorus that’s filled with mainstream appeal. Be sure your overall songs are rhythmically, melodically, and lyrically engaging from start to finish with a polished vocal delivery that sounds like what you’d hear on a radio hit.

    TAXI Tip: Imagine the type of music you’d hear blasting in a party scene. That’s what they’re looking for!

    Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely work best. 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 (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    Note: The $7,000 sync fee is likely in line with what they’d pay if they license a song from a big publisher. If they got a song from a music library, the range would likely be more like $1,500 – $3,000.

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $7,000, 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.

    CONTEMPORARY POP/ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-list Record Producer’s Publishing Company. They’re looking for great Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that generally reflect the vibe and style of acts like (but not limited to):

    “Sugar” by Maroon 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48VSP-atSeI

    “Just Like Fire” by P!nk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nrv5teMc9Y

    “Counting Stars” by One Republic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT_nvWreIhg

    Please submit commercial sounding Pop/Rock Songs that sound like what you’d expect to hear on current radio, with great sounding production, super catchy melodies, and a chorus that’s as memorable as it gets. Having a confident, and well-executed vocal performance could really help your chances for this pitch. Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. That said, this Producer says he’s “open to hearing stripped-down demos if the song is great and the vocal delivery helps me convince artists to cut it.”

    The deal will be negotiated between you and the Producer/Publishing Company. Please do not submit songs that are already in any other catalogs or signed to any other publishing companies. The company typically does exclusive publishing or co-publishing deals from what we’ve observed. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone and overall vibe. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or on CD, Include Lyrics.

    ORIGINAL, RETRO-Style ‘50’s & ‘60’s POP (A.K.A Malt Shop-style) SONGS with Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for an (up to), $5,000, NON-Exclusive placement in a TV Series on HBO. They’re looking for authentic sounding Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got from the client:

    "Chances" by Jill Barber: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guVjJC9A_hM

    “I Only Want to Be with You” by Dusty Springfield: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJMJSpOQEvk

    “Til I Kissed You” by Sue Thompson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqC_kpLT9gM

    Please submit well-structured, retro-sounding songs that sound like they’re plucked straight from the ‘50’s or ‘60’s era, with infectious melodies, a solid vocal performance, and a memorable chorus that sounds like something you would have heard in malt shop or car radio back in that golden era of Pop. Submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded in the late or early 1950s or ‘60s, or they can be songs recently recorded and just inspired by that era. Using old school instrument sounds, arrangements, melodies, and production techniques could be helpful for this pitch.

    Quoting The Source: “Songs can be from any era as long as they have the malt shop/retro diner feel.”

    Universal 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, as these songs will likely be used as Background Source Music. 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 (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    Note: The $5,000 sync fee is likely in line with what they’d pay if they license a song from a big publisher. If they got a song from a music library, the range would likely be more like $1,500 – $2,500. It could go higher. We’re just being cautious and conservative.

    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.

    Please submit songs that have a mainstream, radio-friendly sound, with catchy melodies, great hooks, and a big infectious chorus. Some electronic elements can work, but you’d be wise to keep them somewhat minimal as to not take away from the Rock Vibe.

    Lyric themes can vary, but keeping them general, positive, and family-friendly should help, because this show is pretty wholesome. Actually, it’s very wholesome! Please avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Please, do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form.

    “Gunshot” by Lykke Li: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIruwzhozTc

    “1234” by Feist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebYPYLI0K5I

    This is an incredible opportunity to get your music featured in over 100 countries, and have it heard by over 17 MILLION listeners. We know that virtually anybody can get their music on iTunes and a host of other distribution platforms, but if your music is on this particular station, the exposure you’d have could very well be career-changing! At the very least, this would be a great highlight to add to your bio, press kit or social media.

    While we cannot promise anything, the exposure you could get on this particular station goes beyond the public. Virtually all of the Major Label A&R Executives would see that you’ve been included on this playlist, and it’s hard to imagine that wouldn’t cause some of them to reach out to you personally. Again, no promises are being made by us (TAXI), but you’ve got to know that if we’ve only run a small handful of non-paying Industry Listing during our 25-year history, that our gut feeling about this one is very strong!

    Please submit rhythmically and melodically creative songs with lots of cool “ear candy” and a big, memorable chorus. Having attention-grabbing hooks, with memorable melodies, and lyric themes that would sound right at home on the Pop charts should get them excited about your song. A unique, confident, and well-executed vocal performance that’s has a believable “Indie” sound will definitely help your chances for this pitch.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. You can ONLY submit material that you have the legal right/license to submit and perform publicly, and you can NOT submit any material that includes any unauthorized samples of any music or media not owned or controlled by you.

    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 is a long-time, high-level A&R veteran. Feedback will be limited to primarily whether or not the A&R person thinks your material is competitive enough in its current form to be on a chart with multi-platinum, chart-topping artists! The bar for this pitch will be very high, but the rewards could potentially be career-changing. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Monday, October 30th, 2017.

At the very least, this would be a great highlight to add to your bio, press kit or social media.

    While we cannot promise anything, the exposure you could get on this particular station goes beyond the public. Virtually all of the Major Label A&R Executives would see that you’ve been included on this playlist, and it’s hard to imagine that wouldn’t cause some of them to reach out to you personally. Again, no promises are being made by us (TAXI), but you’ve got to know that if we’ve only run a small handful of non-paying Industry Listings during our 25-year history, that our gut feeling about this one is very strong!

    Please send radio-worthy Songs that have creative metaphors and inventive wordplay. Your song should have a rhythmically and melodically engaging beat that instantly grabs the listener. Your vocal performance should have a strong, confident delivery that’s full of attitude and swagger, with a similar vibe and rhythmic quality that you’d typically hear from the referenced artists and others like them.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. You can ONLY submit material that you have the legal right/license to submit and perform publicly, and you can NOT submit any material that includes any unauthorized samples of any music or media not owned or controlled by you.

    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 is a long-time, high-level A&R veteran. Feedback will be limited to primarily whether or not the A&R person thinks your material is competitive enough in its current form to be on a chart with multi-platinum, chart-topping artists! The bar for this pitch will be very high, but the rewards could potentially be career-changing. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Thursday, November 2nd, 2017.

    INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a large NON-Exclusive Music Library with a super long list of TV, Film, and Commercial placements. They’re searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Indie Rock Songs that could be found a playlist with artists like (but not limited to) Alt-J, The XX, MGMT, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get a general idea of what they’re looking for:

    “Breezeblocks” by Alt-J https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMOd6jz548Y

    “Crystalised” by The XX https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Jp2wNF1rkM

    “Alien Days” by MGMT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uG2Pgd6Tm7Q

    Please submit songs that have an authentic Indie Rock sound, with catchy melodies, great hooks, and a big infectious chorus. Your songs should be rhythmically, melodically and lyrically engaging, with really fresh and modern production that fuses Electronic and Rock elements together.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be consistent with what you’d typically hear in the Indie Rock genre. Universal lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will be best for this pitch. 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 (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Company offers a NON-Exclusive 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch. You’ll maintain full ownership of the original Copyright and Master Recording. 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 27th, 2017. TAXI #S171027IR

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE 1970’s ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals 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 reference below, or any other popular acts from that era, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Taking care of business” by Bachman Turner Overdrive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCIUf8eYPqA

    “ROCK 'N ME” by Steve Miller Band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUHtJJ1Fgjs

    “Ramblin' Gamblin Man” by Bob Seger: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKwXHDs1R6Y

    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 Saturday, October 28th, 2017. TAXI #S171028VR

    DEATH ROCK ARTISTS and/or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a really well-known Indie Record Label that’s hunting for some awesome acts to sign to their eclectic roster. Please listen to the references below to get in the general range of what might get this awesomely cool Record Label interested in what you’re doing:

    “Volcanos” by BLOODSPOT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If9VmBlp82c

    Please submit dark, moody Death Rock songs that highlight your aggressive sound with authentic sounding Rock instrumentation, really great musicianship, and a vocal signature that has a unique and identifiable quality. Having thrashy guitar and drum sounds could help you grab this label’s attention!

    Note: They’ve asked for THREE songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

    They’re mostly interested in artists and bands that are active and out there working on their careers, so please include any touring, fan base, or sales, streaming, or impressive social media figures you have in your bio. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out 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! Please three Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Monday, November 6th, 2017. TAXI #Y171106DA
