    Please submit solid songs with great structure, super-catchy melodies, stellar production, unforgettable hooks, and of course, a killer chorus that screams HIT! Your song can have a slight R&B appeal but make sure it maintains an A/C Pop sound. This artist has an amazing vocal range, so having a strong vocal on your demo could help get this artist and label excited about cutting your song. The bar will be high for this request, so pitch your best!

    Please send well-crafted Adult Contemporary Songs with super-catchy melodies, and a great, hook-filled chorus that sounds like a radio hit as soon as you hear it. Your song should have a slight R&B appeal, but still able to resonate with a broad audience in both genres.

    You’re vocal performance should be so awesome that it will get the producer -- and any of the artists he presents it to -- excited as soon as they hit “play.” Your production and 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. A piano/vocal or guitar/vocal of a great song and a convincing vocal could work for this!

    Please submit as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Thursday, November 30th, 2017. TAXI #S171130AC

Songs that have visually detailed lyrics (but not so detailed that they couldn’t be used in a TV scene), catchy hooks, a stand out chorus, and a confident vocal delivery will help you grab this Music Library attention!

    Lyrics themes can vary, but should be expertly crafted, and in the range of what you’d typically hear in this genre.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE COUNTRY ROCK SONGS with Female 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 references below, or any other popular acts from that era, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Blue Bayou” by Linda Ronstadt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kp9G0zkorio

    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 (PST), on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017. TAXI #S171205CR

    Please submit top-notch songs that have a sound and style that generally reflect the cotemporary Country/Pop style of the referenced acts. Your submissions should have polished sounding production, with fresh, catchy melodies, killer hooks, and a chorus that sounds like a hit. Uncomplicated, conversational lyrics that don’t get too specific will likely be more appealing to this company. In other words, “I met Suzie in St. Louis, on the banks of the Mississippi on a moonlit night,” won’t be as easy to use as, “She makes my heart skip a beat.”

Use them only as a general guide for feel, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The sync fee we were quoted for this placement was $5,000. Our experience tells us that sync fees in that range are usually based on the show licensing a song from a well-known act through a large publisher The sync fee will likely be in the $1,500 - $2,500 range for an unknown act, or a “library cut.” It could go higher. We’re just being cautious and conservative.

Your vocal performance should have some grit and swagger, and sound like it’s a good fit for this style of Rock.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something you’d typically hear in the bluesy, Alt-Rock genre. Please avoid references to specific brands, places, dates, times, names, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe.

    Singer / Songwriter

    Return to List of Categories

    EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT, PIANO-Based, SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by a 5-Star Publisher for an (up-to) $5,000, NON-Exclusive placement in an International TV Commercial. Give them Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic wheelhouse of these references:

    “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cwkej79U3ek

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

    “Love Song” by Sara Bareilles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oz6UptPNbdA

    NOTE: Even though some of the references above have fuller production, they’re looking to hear something relatively simple and stripped-down, such as piano/vocal. Some light accompaniment can work.

    Please submit well-crafted, piano-based Songs that are melodically, lyrically, and vocally compelling and have solid musicianship from start to finish. Please be sure that your Song is uplifting, as they want to avoid anything that’s sad or melancholy. If you’re using a sampled/virtual Piano, please be sure that it sounds indistinguishable from the real thing!

    Quoting the Publisher: “The music should help us connect with the family and the changes they’re going through, but also create the feeling that a positive solution is at hand.”

    LYRIC Tip: They’re looking for songs with lyrics about Change, New Beginnings, New Ways Forward, and The Future. Anything in that ballpark could be considered. Fresh starts and feeling hopeful would also fall under that general umbrella. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your songs more usable.

    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).
