    “I Remember You” by The Four Freshmen

    “It's a Blue World” by The Four Freshmen

Your vocal performances should have pitch-perfect melodies and tight (likely 4-part) harmonies from top to bottom. Make sure your recordings sound like real musicians playing real instruments, even if you’ve used virtual instruments and/or samples. Or just skip the instruments all together - as Acapella Songs (vocals only) will also be considered for this request!

    NOTE: You do NOT have to submit an authentic vintage master recording for this pitch, but if you do, they’ll love you for it! Recently recorded Songs that have a classic feel and style are fine as well.

    Lyrics that avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will work best, but they're not an absolute requirement. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This Library offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE Deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees equally with the publisher. You’ll get 100% of the Master rights and Writer’s share, and the Library will get 100% of the Publishing for any placements they generate.

    Please submit rhythmically engaging Instrumentals that are primarily percussive from start to finish. Your submissions should sound current and have a distinct Urban flavor.

    TAXI Tip: Feel free to get somewhat inventive and creative with the percussive sounds you use! For example, mixing in electronic drum elements with live drums might be a great approach to take. Experiment, but try to avoid going so far out there that what you create would be hard to place in a TV Commercial.

    Your submissions should be about 2 minutes in length (give or take). Non-Faded, stinger endings will work best for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Also, do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media.

    Canon in D (Pachelbel) | Relaxing Lullaby for Children

    POSITIVE INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed for TV COMMERCIALS by a High-End Music Library with countless credits in big Feature Films, TV Shows, and Commercials.

    They’re looking for Instrumental Cues in All Tempos that would fall within the stylistic wheelhouse of the references we got from our client:

    Positive Ad-Friendly Examples (Dropbox playlist)

    Please submit well-composed Instrumental Cues that have an "advertising-friendly” sound and vibe. Your production should be driven by organic based instrumentation and should have some development as it progresses.

    The key elements that make this music library happy are:

    • Cues should have a Positive mood (it can be “warm” and/or  “motivational”, but always positive.)

    • Cues need to have good edit points.

    • Cues must be Library-cue ‘friendly’ i.e.: a clear theme right from the start. Proper mood and pacing.

    • Instrumental Cues can have an ABAB structure, but don't necessarily need to (listen to the examples). Prominent leads are not needed. The theme/motifs should be found in the arrangement/chord progressions (again, listen to the examples).

    • High quality, in composition, tone, and performance are all required.

    All submissions should be approximately 2 minutes long. Non-Faded, Buttoned endings are preferred. Broadcast Quality is needed.

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

    Because this is an Exclusive deal, the music you submit for this pitch cannot already be signed with any other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Composition rights. Please send 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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Wednesday, May 29th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190529AD

    Your submissions should be 90 seconds to 2 minutes long (give or take) with Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings. 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. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    LATIN INSTRUMENTALS or INSTRUMENTAL CUES in ANY SUB-GENRE are needed for a "Best Of" TAXI-branded Compilation/Playlist that will be sent to a long list of Music Supervisors, Music Libraries, Music Publishers, Ad Agencies, and Independent Film Makers!

    NOTE: We are also running a TAXI Listing for Latin Songs as listing TAXI #Y190604TX, so please don’t confuse the two!

    Here’s the scoop: From time to time, TAXI proactively sends out shining examples of our members' best music to increase awareness among Industry Executives and end users. Not only do these compilations create exposure for the music that's on the playlist, but they also increase the number of requests we get from companies and individuals we'd like to have sourcing more music from TAXI members.

    We've tasked our A&R Team with finding great, “sync-able” Latin Instrumentals or Instrumental Cues. All submissions will be judged on their “usability factor,” with TAXI's A&R Team members asking themselves, “Would this be desirable to an industry pro who needs music for a TV Show, Film, or Commercial?”

    We’re not providing any references for this request as we want to keep this pretty open. You can submit any sub-genre ranging from Salsa, Mariachi, Latin Pop, Banda, Bossa Nova, Reggaetón, Bolero, Plena, Latin Rap/Hip-Hop, Samba, Tango, Plena, Zouk, Bachata, etc., etc., etc.

    Whatever you decide to go with, it should sound current, with appropriate-sounding instrumentation and production that fits the sub-genre. Mid-to-Up Tempo Instrumentals are usually more desirable, but if you have really strong Ballads or Down-Tempo pieces, you can go ahead and include them as well!

    Your submissions should be 2-4 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The Instrumentals or Instrumental Cues you submit for this request CANNOT already be signed or locked into any type of Exclusive or Non-Exclusive Publishing deal. Your submissions must remain available for licensing for at least FOUR MONTHS after the Listing's deadline date. If an industry pro tries to sign your song and they can't, you could be putting your professional reputation at risk!

    You need to own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Do NOT submit material that’s already been signed to ANY other publisher or catalog. Please submit as many Instrumentals or Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only.

    NEW LISTING --

    CONTEMPORARY POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Major Record Label A&R Executive for a Grammy-nominated Artist looking for her next big single!

    The hunt is on for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to), Hayley Kiyoko, HAIM, and Sky Ferreira. Please listen to the following references to get an idea of the stylistic ballpark that could work for this request:

    “Curious” by Hayley Kiyoko

    “Want You Back” by HAIM

    “You're Not The One” Sky Ferreira

    They’re looking for radio-friendly songs that have a similar vibe, style, and appeal of the current hits in this genre. Your submissions should have solid song structure, engaging lyrics, and a super catchy chorus that pops out and turns heads. The more polished your vocal performance is, the more likely you'll grab the attention of this label.

    TAXI Tip: Having a song in the same vocal range as the references, with a bit of an anthemic Pop/Rock element, could strongly increase your chances of nailing this request! If you're thinking, "Why does the vocal have to be so good if they're just going to sing a new one with this artist?" here's why: The better the "demo" vocal is, they better the song sounds when the artist is considering it. ;-) Put your best foot forward!

    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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, June 7th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190607PS

    Lyric Tip: They’re looking for lyric themes like (but not limited to) "I LOVE YOU" or "I MISS YOU" or "I'M SORRY" -- Greeting card type stuff. ("If I could re-order the alphabet, I'd put U and I together.")

    TAXI Tip: This Music Library tends to look for more emotionally upbeat, party-style Rap/Hip-Hop, so you’ll want to avoid submitting songs that are too dark or have too much of a Trap feel.

    They didn’t specify any lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics.

    CONTEMPORARY RAP/HIP-HOP ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a new company designed to help artists raise funds while engaging their fans!

    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:

    "Wow." by Post Malone

    “MIDDLE CHILD” by J. Cole

    Rock

    Return to List of Categories

    SOUTHERN ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several $4,500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in an Action Adventure Fantasy TV Series.

    The Supervisor is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist as (but not limited to) acts and songs like:

    "One Way Out" by The Allman Brothers Band

    "Born On The Bayou" by Creedence Clearwater Revival

    "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd

    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 Southern Rock Songs that have great melodies, solid hooks, and a compelling chorus. Your song should have genre appropriate production, with great musicianship that leans toward the Southern/Country side of Rock. Some edge and attitude in the vocal delivery could help you get this Supervisor’s attention.

    NOTE: Recently recorded Songs, as well as Vintage 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. They’re not worried about the song sounding like it’s sonically from the era as they’ll work on that in post-production.

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “I need 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.”

    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 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!

    ORIGINAL METAL ROCK SONGS RECORDED BEFORE 1985 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 following references, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Ace Of Spades” by Motörhead

    “Hallowed Be Thy Name” by Iron Maiden

    “You've Got Another Thing Coming” by Judas Priest

    The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality for this pitch, and you can submit old masters or old demos. Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than a good demo recording. 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 before 1985, 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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Saturday, May 25th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190525MT

    A lot of ISRAELI ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for (up to) $5,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements in a Hit TV Show on a Major Cable Network. She’s looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs for this Military, Special Ops-style show that has plenty of booms, bangs, and chase scenes.

    The Inside Scoop: This Supervisor knows she’s going to need a bunch of Israeli Rock songs for the upcoming season of this show. She’s building a “stash” in advance of post-production. She likes both of the references below and told us that both styles could work, as well as “anything in between.”

    Please send Rock Songs that run the gamut from what we’re calling “traditional Israeli Rock” to harder-edged, testosterone-driven, Hard Rock (with some Middle Eastern flavor) that would work well in the action/shoot ‘em up scenes. Great songwriting, performances, vocals, and production are needed. All songs need to be Broadcast Quality.

    Lyric Tip: All vocals need to be in Hebrew, and it’s probably a good idea to go with lyrics that touch on themes like winning, victory, surviving, brothers in arms, fighting, and other battle-born concepts that would work during the “kick-ass” scenes. Political, religious, and love songs won’t work for these scenes, so please don’t send any of those!

    For the more traditional (less hard-edged) Israeli Rock songs, lyric themes can touch on a wider range of lyric ideas as they will likely be used as background source music in bars, car radios, hotel lobbies, elevators, etc. Again, political and religious songs probably won’t work for these placements, so please steer clear!

    Below are references that “bookend” the spectrum of what could work in this show. The references might have political or religious lyrics -- please ignore them. The music is where you should direct your attention.

    Sapari by Orphaned Land

    Psalm 150 by MIQEDEM

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

    Because this request precedes the show’s post-production schedule, we are estimating the license fees to range from $2,500-$5,000 per placement. These will be Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements, and you will get 100% of the Sync Fee (no publisher splits), and you will keep 100% of your Master and Composition ownership! You’ll also get 100% of the performance royalties through your PRO. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as TAXI Listing #Y190428PS, but the company did not find enough material. If you submitted to TAXI #Y190428PS, please submit different material this time around!

    "Wasted" by Zebra

    "Bell Park Loon" by Spiny Normen

    “Zekes” by Box

    “The Wizard” by Blown Free

    Your submissions should capture the essence of the Acid/Psychedelic/Garage Rock music from that era. Please submit old masters that were recorded in the 1960s-1970s. Authenticity is key! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC VINTAGE RECORDINGS.

    The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! They’re interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period and has reasonably good fidelity.

    The overall deal points for this will be negotiated directly with the Label, on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you 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 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, June 1st, 2019.  TAXI #Y190601LS

    Please submit original songs that have all the appeal of a real-deal Indie Rock band or artist with the kinds of instrumentation typically found in the genre. Your submissions should have well-performed vocals and a compelling chorus.

    This Company lets the Artist keep 100% of the money they raise! The specific deal terms will be negotiated between you and the Music Company.

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE ROCK SONGS in ANY SUB-GENRE with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a "Best Of" TAXI-branded Compilation/Playlist that will be sent to a long list of Music Supervisors, Music Libraries, Music Publishers, Ad Agencies, and Independent Film Makers!

    Here’s the scoop: From time to time, TAXI proactively sends out shining examples of our members' best music to increase awareness among Industry Executives and end users. Not only do these compilations create exposure for the music on the playlist, but they also increase the number of industry requests we get for TAXI members' music.

    We've tasked our A&R Team with finding great, “sync-able” Indie Rock Songs. All songs will be judged on their “usability factor,” with TAXI's A&R Team asking themselves, “Would this be desirable to an industry pro who needs music for a TV Show, Film, or Commercial?”

    Please send in Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist as acts like (but not limited to) Local Natives, No Vacation, Vampire Weekend, Foals, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to these references to get a general idea of what can work for this pitch:

    “When Am I Gonna Lose You” by Local Natives

    “Yam Yam” by No Vacation

    “This Life” by Vampire Weekend

    "South" by Hippo Campus

    "Videograms" by the Twilight Sad

    "Exits" by Foals

    Please submit fresh Rock Songs that have a cool Indie sound and vibe but still keep a commercial appeal. Having a distinctive vocal sound/identity could also help you stand out for this pitch.

    Lyric Tip: Do your best to keep your lyrics on the “universal” side, avoiding specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity. That’s not absolutely necessary for this request, but it could make it more appealing to a Music Supervisor or Ad Agency!

    Your Songs should be full-length (approx. 3 to 4 minutes long). Non-Faded, buttoned/stinger endings are recommended. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The songs you submit for this request CANNOT already be signed or locked into any type of Exclusive or Non-Exclusive Publishing deal. Your submissions must remain available for licensing for at least FOUR MONTHS after the Listing's deadline date. If an industry pro tries to sign your song and they can't, you could be putting your professional reputation at risk!

    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.  All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, June 12th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190612RS

    Return to List of Categories

    CONTEMPORARY SINGER/SONGWRITER-Style LOVE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for several Non-Exclusive Placements in a Mobile App.

    They’re looking for Songs in All Tempos that would fall within the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

    "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran

    “The Power of Love” by Gabrielle Aplin

    “Saturday Sun” by Vance Joy

    "You Are The Reason” by Calum Scott

    Quoting the Client: “The demographics of the app is young. We need songs that 18-30-year-olds can relate to. Nothing "schmaltzy."

    Please submit contemporary-sounding Singer/Songwriter Songs with great melodies and a memorable chorus. Instrumentation can vary for this pitch but should be predominantly acoustic-driven (Piano and/or Acoustic Guitar) and loosely in the general style of the references mentioned. A small, subtle ensemble/band behind the singer could work as well!

    Lyric Tip: They’re looking for lyric themes like (but not limited to) "I LOVE YOU" or "I MISS YOU" or "I'M SORRY" -- Greeting card type stuff. ("If I could re-order the alphabet, I'd put U and I together.")

    Do NOT copy the referenced artist/acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    NOTE: They're primarily looking for active artists with a strong social media presence, solid streaming numbers, etc. If you don’t 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 from you!

    This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE deal. Artists will be paid a percentage of the money generated by the app and on a quarterly basis. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity, as they want easy clearance/one-stop situations. If you decide to enter into the agreement with them, they will have the green light to use your material non-exclusively for up to five years.

    Please send as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190604SS

    CONTEMPORARY SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a "Best Of" TAXI-branded Compilation/Playlist that will be sent to a long list of Music Supervisors, Music Libraries, Music Publishers, Ad Agencies, and Independent Film Makers!

    Here’s the scoop: From time to time, TAXI proactively sends out shining examples of our members' best music to increase awareness among Industry Executives and end users. Not only do these compilations create exposure for the music on the playlist, but they also increase the number of industry requests we get for TAXI members' music.

    We've tasked our A&R Team with finding great, “sync-able” Singer/Songwriter Songs. All songs will be judged on their “usability factor,” with TAXI's A&R Team members asking themselves, “Would this be desirable to an industry pro who needs music for a TV Show, Film, or Commercial?”

    We’re looking for Songs in All-Tempos, in the general stylistic range of (but not limited to) the following references:

    “Budapest” by George Ezra

    “Be Ok” by Ingrid Michaelson

    “Mountain To Move” by Nick Mulvey

    “Oh My Blue Sky” by The Well Pennies

    “Home” by Leo Stannard

    “People Help The People” by Birdy

    Season's Greetings: Let food unite

    “I'm With You” by Vance Joy

    Please submit CONTEMPORARY-sounding Singer/Songwriter Songs in the general wheelhouse of the references above. You can go with a relatively simple, Stripped-Down Guitar/Vocal (or Piano/Vocal) performance, or you could go with a small ensemble and a more complete arrangement. A great vocal performance with a compelling delivery could really help you nail this request.

    Lyric Tip: Do your best to keep your lyrics on the “universal” side. Please try to avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity. That’s not absolutely necessary for this request, but it could make it easier for a Music Supervisor or Ad Agency to use it!

    Your Songs should be full length (approx. 3 to 4 minutes long). Non-Faded endings are recommended. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The songs you submit for this request CANNOT already be signed or locked into any type of Exclusive or Non-Exclusive Publishing deal. Your submissions must remain available for licensing for at least FOUR MONTHS after this Listing's deadline date. If an industry pro tries to sign your song and they can't, you could be putting your professional reputation at risk!

    You need to own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Do NOT submit material that’s already been signed to ANY other publisher or catalog. 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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Thursday, June 6th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190606SS

    Vintage

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE SONGS that were Recorded in the 1950s are needed by a successful Los Angeles-based Production Music Library that’s brand new to running searches with TAXI!

    NOTE: We’re not providing any references for this request, as they’re open to hearing Songs in most of the popular/commercially viable genres, including Pop, Rock & Roll, Blues, Jazz, Country, etc. Male, Female, or Duet vocals can all work for this request.

    Please submit Vintage Masters of Original Songs from the 1950s. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! They’re much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period rather than worrying about pristine recordings.

    Your Songs can range anywhere from very simple, stripped-down versions, to fuller productions with more instrumentation. Whichever genre or sub-genre you’re pitching, the music should have genre-appropriate instrumentation and production. Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs are usually more easily placed; but if you have a really strong Ballad, feel free to take a shot!

    Please submit Full-Length Songs that are at least 2:00 in length.

    They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old! They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only as long as the sound quality is reasonably good.

    This Company offers EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deals. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity, and the material you submit cannot be signed to any other deals or in any other catalogs. 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 has been handpicked by the Founder of the Music Library – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, June 9th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190609VS
