    ORIGINAL, Guitar-Based BLUES SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for a few $4,500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in an Action Adventure Fantasy TV Series. They seek Guitar driven Songs in All-Tempos that would fit on a playlist with these references the Music Supervisor gave us:

    “Boogie Chillen’” by John Lee Hooker

    “Dust My Broom” by Elmore James

    “Mannish Boy” by Muddy Waters

    NOTE: Over the course of the next few days you may see quite a few requests from this Music Supervisor, as he is working on a series that utilizes Guitar-based music to represent different eras in music history. This series will need A-LOT of different kinds of guitar music, and the Music Supervisor will be using TAXI as one of his primary resources!

    Give them well-crafted, soulfully expressive Blues Songs that have tons of attitude and emotion. 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 Music Supervisor. You can submit recently recorded songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark, or if you’ve got any original vintage pieces (recorded back in the day), they would love to hear them as well.

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “I need uplifting songs with plenty of dynamics and Infectious Riffs! Great catchy rhythms with deep pocket energy and drive. These tracks need to feel and sound like the real deal.”

    Lyrics can vary, but should generally reflect the themes you typically hear in Blues songs. Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will be best for this pitch, but they’re not an absolute requirement. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $4,500, depending on the ultimate placement. These will be Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements, 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! Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Monday, April 22nd, 2019.  TAXI #Y190422BL

    Christmas / Holiday

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS SONGS in a WIDE RANGE of STYLES are needed by a very active Music Licensing Company that gets a lot of great TV placements for TAXI members. They’re looking for Songs in All Tempos that could fit in the broad and general stylistic wheelhouse of the references below:

    “Merry Christmas Everyone” by Andra

    “Jingle Bell Rock” by Glee

    “Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson

    Please submit Original Christmas Songs that will get listeners into the Christmas spirit. Your production can range from simple arrangements (like a Ukulele, claps, and a celeste), up to bigger, more fully developed arrangements - genres like Pop, Rock, Electronic, Country, Punk, or R&B could all work for this request. Having a solid vocal performance could also help you nail this pitch (assuming the song is strong).

    TAXI Tip: Little Christmas-y accents like bells, glockenspiel, or tubular bells could give your submission some added Christmas cheer, but they’re not necessary. If you do use them, we’ve typically found that it’s best not to overdo them!

    Lyrics that are more in the ballpark of the secular holiday season will probably work better than religious songs, considering the context of the references. 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.

    This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, with a 50/50 split on applicable sync fees. The Publisher will get 50% of Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share and 50% of the Publisher’s share as well. Sweet deal! You must own or control 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 Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only.

    They're interested in hearing Instrumentals in a wide variety of Genres and styles, ranging from (but not limited to) Orchestral, Singer/Songwriter, Hip-Hop, Folk, EDM, Dance, Soul, Pop, Rock, etc., etc., etc.

    Give them well-crafted Covers of Public Domain Christmas Songs that have solid production, a great vocal performance, and a style that captures the festive spirit of the holiday season.

    “Miss Me More” by Kelsea Ballerini

    “Next Boyfriend” by Lauren Alaina

    Please submit Contemporary Country Songs that would fit right in with the Country hits on today’s charts (skewed towards the Pop side of the spectrum).

Your vocals should have a radio-friendly sound and style, with plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity.

    Lyrics that will make it over the Nashville “bar” are needed; and even if you submit a fairly stripped-down demo, your vocal performance also needs to be super strong to get the Label and the Artist excited about recording your song!

    Quoting the V.P. of A&R: “Think along the lines of a Country Version of Adele or JLo. Think Country, but with a Pop flair."

    Please send them super strong songs that sound like HITS, with fresh melodies and a visually descriptive, conversational lyric approach. Adding a hint of Pop-leaning production is strongly suggested for this pitch!

    NOTE: Your submissions can be stripped-down demos or fuller productions, as long as what you send would be competitive with what they’ll get from writers on the Row. Your vocals should have a slick, youthful Country sound and should be stylistically in line with the references.

    Your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well.

    Please send well-crafted Songs with great melodies, strong lyrics, and a compelling chorus that’s based around “Drinking.” Your Songs can range anywhere from very simple stripped-down versions to fuller productions with more instrumentation. Whichever style of music you’re pitching, the music should have genre-appropriate instrumentation, engineering, and production. A great vocal performance that’s solid from start to finish should also help you stand out for this pitch.

    Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. **Era **and/orgenre appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    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!

    Instrumental (Multiple Genres)

    Return to List of Categories

    CONTEMPORARY EDM INSTRUMENTAL TRACKS (not Cues for film/TV) are needed by a well-known INDIE RECORD LABEL that’s always on the lookout for great new talent to sign. They're eagerly looking to sign talented, new EDM Music Producers/Remixers/DJs with great tracks!

    Please send them Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Tracks in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    “Decisions” by KREAM

    “No Sleep” by Martin Garrix ft. Bonn

    “Better When You're Gone” by David Guetta, Brooks & Loote

    NOTE: We request that you submit ORIGINAL EDM TRACKS for this pitch only; however, the label is seeking artists that have the knowledge and ability to create EDM Remixes if the opportunity arises.

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only! 

    Please submit melodically and rhythmically appealing Instrumentals that reflect the general vibe, sound, and style of the references above. Having modern Electronic sounds and production techniques, along with tons of catchy ear candy woven in, could help you grab their attention. You’d also be wise to send Instrumental Tracks that sound more like EDM records rather than material that sounds like it came from a Music Library.

    Note: They’ve asked for THREE Instrumentals per submission, so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. In the past, this company has signed TAXI acts to full record deals!

    Your production and recording quality needs to be strong enough to represent your Instrumental well. 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 Producer/Remixer/DJ and don’t have much of a story or track record, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit three Instrumentals, online or per CD, and be sure to include photos and a bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, April 18th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190418DM

They’re on the hunt for an Up-Tempo, emotionally upbeat Instrumental that could work as a replacement for “Hey Now,” which is currently temped into this Film:

    “Hey Now” by Martin Solveig & The Cataracs Ft. Kyle

    This Film Producer is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Please give them well-produced Pop Instrumentals that have an emotionally upbeat feel, mood, and vibe to them. Your submissions should have catchy melodies, engaging rhythms, and a cool stylistic blend of Pop/Rock and EDM production techniques. You’d be wise to steer clear of any harsh or bombastic sounds that might distract from a scene’s dialog.

    All submissions should be about 2:00 in length (give or take), with Non-Faded endings. Do NOT copy the referenced artist or song 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 this placement is between $150 - $200, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Film Producer 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 Instrumentals (Recently recorded but retro-sounding OR Vintage Recordings can both work) in the wheelhouse of the example below:

    Key & Peele - Aerobics Meltdown

    To be clear: They’re NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, energy, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Please submit original, well-crafted, slightly “Cheezy” Pop Instrumentals with a clear 1980s sound, style, and influence. Your submissions should have retro-sounding melodies, danceable rhythms, and infectious grooves throughout. Dated sounds and production could actually work in your favor for this pitch!

    Important info from our Source: “Please listen to the part around 0:25. You need to have the same tempo, similar tone, etc. Your Instrumental should feel dated and cheap, sort of like Devo's "Whip It," which is another '80s vibe that could work.”

    “Whip It” by Devo

    All submissions should be between 2:00 to 4:00 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings will work best. Do not copy the reference in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for the overall feel, texture, and tone. Era-Appropriate Broadcast quality is needed.

    "El Efecto” by Rauw Alejandro & Chencho Corleone

    “Tanta Falta” by Bryant Myers

    “No Es Justo” by J. Balvin, Zion & Lennox

    NOTE: Over the course of the next few days you may see quite a few requests for Latin Instrumentals in different styles. The reason is that several companies received similar requests for the same show.

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only.

    Please send them well-crafted Instrumental Cues in the vibe and style of the references above, with the kind of instrumentation you'd commonly hear in the Reggaetón genre. Make sure your Instrumentals have great melodies, captivating Latin drum rhythms, and a polished sound. Structure your Cue around a central melodic theme while adding and subtracting instrumentation as it progresses to give it some dynamics, interest, and forward momentum.

    NOTE: They need a bunch of Cues in this style; so if you’ve got them, don’t be shy about submitting for this!

    Your submissions should be about two minutes long. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger Endings are recommended. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    The deal will be negotiated between you and the Collaborator(s), but it’s pretty obvious that the deal is likely to be a co-write with the artist who adds the top line.

    “Te Va A Doler” by Maelo Ruiz

    NOTE: Over the course of the next few days you may see quite a few requests for Latin Instrumentals in different styles.

Give them pieces that inspire Salsa dancing or that sound like something you’d hear while eating at a Mexican restaurant.

This Music Supervisor needs Guitar-Driven, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that would fit on a playlist with these references, which the Music Supervisor gave us:

    “Miserlou” by Dick Dale

    “Wipe Out” by Surfaris

    “Pipeline” by The Chantays

    NOTE: Over the course of the next few days you will see quite a few requests from this Music Supervisor as he is working on a series that uses Guitar-based music to represent different eras in music history. This series will need a LOT of different kinds of guitar music, and the Music Supervisor will be using TAXI as one of his primary sources to find that music!

    Please submit well-crafted Instrumentals that instantly transport listeners back to the sun-soaked, sandy beaches of Southern California where it all began. Having Electric guitars with tremolo and whammy bar in your production could help get you in the stylistic wheelhouse.

    Although Surf Rock music tends to be instrumental, if your tune has some minimalist vocal phrases placed throughout (a la the "Wipe Out" reference) that's okay! That was quite common in this genre. Male vocalists only, though, per the Music Supervisor.

    NOTE: Recently recorded Instrumentals, as well as Vintage recordings, are both fair game for this request; howeverthis Music Supervisor would prefer to hear NEWER recordings that authentically capture the requested musical style.

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “I need uplifting Instrumentals with plenty of dynamics and Infectious Riffs! Great catchy rhythms with deep pocket energy and drive. These tracks need to feel and sound like the real deal.”

    Please don’t mention specific names, places, dates, times, brands, or profanity. 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.

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $4,500, depending on the ultimate placement. These will be Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements, 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 Instrumentals 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! Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019.  TAXI #Y190502SR

    NEW LISTING --

    TOP 40-STYLE POP INSTRUMENTAL CUES with an Urban Flair are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company that's very aggressive when it comes to pitching. They’re looking for Mid-Tempo Instrumental Cues that could stylistically fit on a playlist with these examples:

    “Eastside” by benny blanco, Halsey & Khalid

    “Better” by Khalid

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only.

    Please submit contemporary Pop Instrumental Cues with Urban rhythms and elements peppered in. Your production should be as fresh and contemporary as the references, so please steer clear of any instruments or elements that sound dated! Be sure to add and subtract layers of instrumentation as your Cues progress to create a sense of dynamics and forward momentum while sticking to a main theme.

    TAXI TIP: Our best advice––keep it simple! They’re not looking for busy tracks, they need sparse Instrumentals that could create a cool backdrop for the shows they’re pitching to. Stay out of the way of dialogue!

    All submissions should be about 90 seconds in length (give or take). Non-faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any 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.

    “First Off” by Future ft. Travis Scott

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only.

    Please submit rhythmically and melodically engaging Trap/Rap Instrumentals with a modern sound. Your Instrumentals should have heavy, speaker-knocking percussion and cool-sounding ear candy throughout in order to keep them from sounding too linear or repetitive. Build your submissions around a catchy central melodic theme, and keep it dynamic and forward-moving by layering elements in and out as your piece progresses.

    TAXI TIP: Our best advice––keep it simple! They’re not looking for busy tracks, they need sparse Instrumentals that could create a cool backdrop for the shows they’re pitching to. Stay out of the way of dialogue, and you could be golden!

    URBAN DRAMEDY INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a hot International Music Library that’s been signing a lot of TAXI members to keep up with their increasing demand. They love receiving music from TAXI members, and have requested even more!

    They’re on the hunt for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the examples below:

    Check Yourself: S9 E14 (From 1:27 - 2:01)

    Please give them well-crafted Dramedy Instrumental Cues with a noticeable Urban vibe, feel, and style. Your Cues should have contemporary instrumentation and solid production values from top to bottom.

    Be sure to build your Cue around a central melodic theme, while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as it progresses to create dynamics and movement. Please avoid anything that sounds overly busy, as it could distract from a scene’s dialogue. If you can picture your Instrumental Cue working well in a variety of comical scenes in Urban-centric Reality TV Shows, send it in!

    TAXI Tip: This library needs a bunch of fresh Instrumental Cues in this genre; so if you’ve got the goods, don’t be shy about submitting multiple pieces for consideration!

    All submissions should be at least 60 seconds in length (somewhere in the ballpark of 60 seconds to 2 minutes is probably your best bet.) Good edit points and Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are strongly encouraged. Do NOT copy the examples in any way, shape, or form.

    NEW LISTING --

    LATIN FLAVORED POP SONGS with English lyrics and Female Vocals are needed by a Major Label Producer for a HUGE Latin Artist with multiple #1 hits! Our client is looking for chart-worthy, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist as the references we got directly from him:

    “Get Right” by Jennifer Lopez

    “Baby Boy” by Beyonce ft. Sean Paul

    “Ain't Your Mama” by Jennifer Lopez

    Quoting the Producer: “The artist is looking for Latin-Flavored Pop Hits in the vein of early Sean Paul and J-Lo. Tracks should be Mid-to-Up Tempo, Single contenders only. Think Latin and Urban rhythms intertwined with big Pop hooks.”

    Give them captivating songs that have a radio-friendly structure, a super memorable chorus, and sound like a HIT. Your submissions should be slick, polished, and have a crossover sound that can work in both the Pop and Latin markets. You’d be smart to have a great vocal performance on your recording to help sell the artist and the Producer on the idea of cutting your song.

    LYRIC Tip: Lyrically, aim for themes that focus on female empowerment and female sexual power (that's what they asked for!) Also, your lyrics do NOT need to be performed in Spanish for this request (the artist wants to record an album in English.)

    Your recording quality needs to be clean, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, Include Lyrics. Time permitting, the Producer himself may screen some or all of the submissions! All submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Tuesday, May 7th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190507LP

    “Bedroom Floor" by Liam Payne

    Give them Pop Songs that have great melodies, a super memorable chorus, and some Urban flavor that will work well for mainstream listeners.

    LEGENDARY ARTIST JOSÉ FELICIANO needs SONGS with Male Vocals by SUNDAY for his next record!

    Rather than trying to describe what they need, we think the best thing you can do is listen to the songs on this YouTube page to get a feel for the range of what might appeal to José:

    José Feliciano

    They're looking for exceptional songs that fit well with José's sound and style, and they've asked us to be VERY selective in what we send him. All material forwarded by TAXI will be going directly to José's producer! If the producer likes what he hears, he'll play those songs for José.

    NOTE: Your vocals can be performed entirely in English, or mostly in English, with a little Spanish sprinkled in. Either way will be fine.

    Your recording quality needs to be clean, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, Include Lyrics. Time permitting, someone from the Producer’s team may screen some or all of the submissions!

    FUN POP SONGS RECORDED BETWEEN 1990–1999 with Male or 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 following references, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “How Bizarre” by OMC

    “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba

    “Every Morning” by Sugar Ray

    “Save Tonight” by Eagle-Eye Cherry

    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. The Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period. They are the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and Feature Films when music from a specific time period is needed.

    The Publisher pays you upfront for the master rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share 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 buy out 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.

    Make sure your Songs were actually recorded between 1990-1999, otherwise this company cannot use them! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only if 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. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only.

Your submissions should have tight, infectious grooves and super funky bass and guitar parts. Your vocal performance should be in the lane of the referenced acts and other acts like them.

    NOTE: Recent recordings that sound retro can work for this; but if you’ve got any original vintage pieces that actually date back to that era, this Music Library would LOVE to hear them!

    Lyric themes can vary but should veer in the direction of the references above, as well as other acts and songs of that era and style. Avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, and brands is generally a good idea for Film and TV music. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form.

    “Damn!” by The Motet

    Please submit well-produced Funk/Soul songs that highlight your ability to captivate an audience, both lyrically and musically.

    This company has never requested music from TAXI members, so this is an early chance to get on their radar!

    Note: You’d be wise to submit THREE songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. They’re looking for acts that they can take to the next level.

    Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your songs well.

    LYRIC Tip: You’d be wise to submit lyrics that aren’t too focused on the words “Jesus” or “God.” In other words, nothing too overtly Christian related. Lyrics that are emotionally uplifting and positive will work best (think good Christian values). Also - no profanity, no exceptions.

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

    BLUES/ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an up-to $200, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placement in an Independent Feature Film. They’re on the hunt for an Uptempo Song that could work as a replacement for “Life To Fix” which is currently temped into this Film.

    “Life To Fix” by The Record Company

    This Film's Producer is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Quoting the Film's Producer: “We love the cool guitar riffs, the male vocals, and the general idea of the lyrics ("I have one life to live...").

    Give them rockin’ songs that have all the appeal of the reference above, with outstanding melodies and a great hook-filled chorus. Your song should lean a bit more toward the Blues-y side of Rock and should have solid musicianship and high production value.

    Just a thought: Considering they've already temped-in the ref song, you might want to pay attention to its tempo, the beat, and that cool guitar riff the film's producer mentioned. Those things might be the "special sauce!"

    The gang vocals might be something that adds to the appeal as well.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this placement is between $150 - $200, depending on the ultimate use. 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.

    “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry

    “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis Presley

    "Twenty Flight Rock"  by Eddie Cochran

    NOTE: Over the course of the next few days you will see quite a few requests from this Music Supervisor as he is working on a series that uses Guitar-based music to represent different eras in music history. This series will need a LOT of different kinds of guitar music, and the Music Supervisor will be using TAXI as one of his primary sources to find that music!

    Please send them original, guitar-driven Rock songs that have an authentic 1950s sound. Your submissions should have well-performed, authentic-sounding Rock band instrumentation with a compelling vocal performance that authentically fits with the ‘50s delivery and style of the references.

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded in the 1950s, or they can be songs recently recorded and just inspired by that era.

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “I need uplifting songs with plenty of dynamics and Infectious Riffs! Great catchy rhythms with deep pocket energy and drive. These tracks need to feel and sound like the real deal.”

    Lyrics that are appropriate to the era and genre are preferred.  Please don’t mention specific names, places, dates, times, brands, or profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed. In other words, if you're submitting music that's ostensibly from the '50s, it should sound sonically like it's from the '50s -- not 2019 ;-)

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $4,500, depending on the ultimate placement. These will be Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements, 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.

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist with the following references our client gave us and other acts like them:

    “Natural” by Imagine Dragons

    “Style” by Foster The People

    “Handyman” by AWOLNATION

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This company is primarily looking for Artists or Bands who have songs with a large number of plays on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music and who also have a large following on social media (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.) If you’re a new artist or band and don’t have a track record of impressive figures yet, please do not submit to this particular request. Sorry, client's request, not ours!

    Please send them well-crafted songs with an anthemic vibe, a super catchy melody, and a big, epic chorus. Your song should have solid production and lean a bit more toward the Pop side of Rock. Some electronic elements could potentially work, but you’d be wise to keep them somewhat minimal. Your vocal performance should be well performed with a solid and confident delivery.

    Your bio should highlight any touring/live show experience and impressive sales and/or streaming figures you may have.

    NOTE: Recently recorded Songs, as well as Old School recordings, are both fair game for this request. However, this Music Supervisor would prefer to hear NEWER recordings that capture the style as opposed to actual Recordings made back in the day.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE, ACCORDION-Based SONGS – RECORDED IN THE 1980s or before – with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

    NOTE: We’re not providing any references for this request, as they want to keep this pretty open. The major genres that feature this instrument are usually styles like Cajun, Tejano, Polka, Zydeco, and Parlor Jazz; but don’t limit yourself to just those genres –– those are just some suggestions!

    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 comes from a specific 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 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 buy out 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.

    Make sure your Songs were actually recorded in the 1980s or before, otherwise, this company cannot use them! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only if 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. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only.

If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out, and you don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound, they’d still like to hear you!

    Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD, include lyrics, photo, 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 Sunday, April 28th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190428RE
