    AAA ARTISTS or BANDS with some AMERICANA influence and Female Vocals are needed by a UK based Record Label that's on the lookout for some great new acts to sign.

    This Record Label hasn't requested music from TAXI's members before, so this is a great chance for them to hear what you sound like! They’re looking to find acts that would appeal to fans of artists like:

    "Strong Enough" by Sheryl Crow

    "Come To My Window" by Melissa Etheridge

    "Nothin' Feels Right But Doin' Wrong" by Sarah Shook & the Disarmers

    "Gone, Gone, Gone" by Nikki Lane

    Quoting our Client: "We need great songs with big juicy hooks and lots of radio appeal, please. NOT looking for old school 1970s-inspired stuff, but artists who took those influences and made their own modern sound/style out of them. NO DINOSAUR ROCK, no song-plugging, please! We're only interested in signing active, working artists with followings."

    Submit well-crafted, rootsy Songs that could work in both the AAA and Americana markets. Be sure your vocals have polished and well-executed deliveries that would instantly grab this Record Label's attention! You'd be wise to submit at least THREE Songs per submission so they can hear that you’ve got depth in your material.

    They’re interested in artists and bands that are actively working on their careers, so please include any touring, fan base, or sales, streaming, or impressive social media figures you have in your bio. That said -- 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 some killer songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

    Submit as many Songs as you'd 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 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, July 27th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190727AA

    “Everything Is Not What It Seems” by Selena Gomez

    ORIGINAL BIG BAND INSTRUMENTALS are needed for a NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

    He's on the hunt for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Instrumentals that would work well in place of “Strangers In The Night” which is currently temped in:

    “Strangers In The Night” by James Last and His Orchestra

    NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Please submit well-composed Instrumentals that capture the easy listening vibe found in the reference above. Strong musicianship, authentic-sounding instrumentation, and a classic, timeless appeal will all help you nail this request!

    Recently recorded Instrumentals with a classic feel can work, as well as material recorded back in the day. This is all about having that authentic and timeless vibe!

    Your submissions should be around 2-3 minutes long with Non-Faded endings. Please Do NOT copy the referenced act or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, feeling, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: There’s been no sync fee given yet, but we would “guesstimate” that the sync fee would range between $150 - $500. It could go higher!

    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 License Fee and any applicable performance royalties. No Publisher splits. You must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD.

    Latin/Spanish-Flavored, Contemporary Hip-Hop/Dance INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Major Publisher for an (up to) $40,000 placement in a HUGE Animated Feature Film!

    NOTE: We are also running a TAXI Listing for Latin/Spanish-Flavored Songs as listing TAXI #Y190718FM, so please don’t confuse the two!

    The Publisher is eager to find Mid-to-Up-Tempo Hip-Hop/Dance Instrumentals he can pitch directly to the Music Supervisor of this big budget film. They're looking for something in the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference we got directly from our client:

    “Por la Noche” by Mala Rodríguez

    NOTE: The film's Music Supervisor likes “Por la Noche” as an example of what could stylistically work in this Film. They are not looking for clones, copies or soundalikes, but they’d love to find something that captures a modern vibe and feel mixed with a heavy Latin/Spanish influence. For this request, the reference track is more of an example than a rule!

    Quoting our client: “We're looking for something Hip, with a cool Contemporary beat. Your Instrumentals can be a hybrid of Hip-Hop or Dance/EDM, but they have to have something that brings out the Spanish elements of this film, and maybe even crosses a bit into the Flamenco side of the spectrum.”

    Give them well-crafted, full-length Instrumentals that would stylistically fit in with the vibe of the reference above. Your submissions should have a noticeable Latin/Spanish sound, combined with contemporary Hip-Hop or Dance instrumentation, engineering, and production techniques.

    NOTE: The selected Instrumental is likely to be used a lot throughout the film, as well as part of the main title!

    Instrumentals should be between 2:00 and 4:00 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings will likely work best, but that’s not an absolute must. Do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $40,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This Publisher offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You’ll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Writer’s share. They’ll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this. Please submit as many Instrumentals you’d like, online or per CD. Your submissions will be judged on their “usability factor” by the screener who was hand-picked by the Publisher. He will be primarily judging based on his gut – if the screener thinks your material is “on target” enough to be used for this massive movie, it could get forwarded! No Full Critiques.

    NEW LISTING --

    EMOTIONALLY UPLIFTING INSTRUMENTALS are needed by FRIDAY for several (up to) $1,500, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placements in a series of Online Commercials.

    They’re looking for a range of Instrumentals in Hip-Hop, EDM, Dance, or Dub Step styles. Please listen to the following references they gave us to get a feel for the styles and vibes they need:

    Levi's

    Powerbeats Pro (From 0:00 – 0:27)

    Galaxy S5

    Quoting the Ad-Agency: “We’re looking for Instrumentals that have lots of energy, driving momentum, and hard-hitting beats that'll keep an audience's attention throughout the commercial.”

    Please submit well-composed, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that are contemporary-sounding and rhythmically strong. Submissions should include modern, genre-appropriate production elements and polished mixes.

    Although the references may range a bit stylistically, ask yourself, "Are my submissions energetic and rhythmic, do they fit in one of the above genres, and could they work well in a TV commercial?" If your answer is "yes," then you might be on to something!

    For this request, we know they’ll probably only use about half a minute of your Instrumentals. That being said, you can still submit full-length Instrumentals, or you can submit short versions that last 29.5 seconds (including ring outs and reverb tails) which would work for a 30-second commercial – effectively doing the extra work for them!

    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.

    Each estimated license fee is between $1,000-$1,500, depending on the ultimate use. This request is for digital/online ads, hence the relatively low creative fee. It’s not uncommon that online ads that do well online get migrated to broadcast or cable TV with additional fees paid when that happens!

    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 Instrumentals for any other Commercials for the duration of the term of the agreement (which will be determined by the Ad Agency and you.) You must own or control the Masters and Copyright 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 handpicked by the Ad Agency - No full critiques. The screener will be basing his decisions largely on what his gut tells him will work for the commercial, and feedback will be minimal. All Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, July 19th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190719EM

    TRIUMPHANT ORCHESTRAL and ORCHESTRAL HYBRID INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Boutique Music Library with a solid track record of TV and Film placements – and they pay an Upfront Fee to Composers!

    They’re looking for a bunch of Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references they gave us:

    “Sol” by Danny Olson

    “Triumph” by Joseph Trapanese

    Please submit epic, heroic, triumphant Instrumental Cues that stick with central motifs from start to finish, and build in intensity and emotion as they progress. Adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as they go should do the trick! Any Orchestral Instrumentation you use needs to sound convincing and real.

    NOTE: They’re also open to hearing Orchestral based TRAILER-Style Instrumental Cues that follow a typical film trailer model (with three distinct acts that build to a climactic crescendo). Either way, just be sure your submissions sound heroic and glorious!

    Your submissions need to be between 2:00 and 2:30 with Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings. Please 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.

    This company is still pretty new to requesting music from TAXI's members which means that you're probably not in their catalog yet. This is a great chance to get in early and build a new relationship with a successful library!

    This Company pays $100 per Cue for an EXCLUSIVE deal in which they 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 other Libraries or Catalogs.

Your Cues should capture the struggle and emotional/physical exhaustion of the athletes as they compete. If you could imagine hearing your submissions used in an intense competition scene, send them in!

    They’re looking for Songs in All Tempos in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references the Music Supervisor gave us:

    “La Magia de Tus Ojos” by Joss Favela

    Please submit authentic-sounding Songs that use genuine Latin instrumentation and have a traditional sound and feel. Your vocals should be performed in Spanish and should sound like the real deal. Musically, this is all about authenticity, so bring it!

    Lyric themes can vary but should be stylistically and topically consistent with the references above and other acts in that ballpark. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will make your song more appealing to this Music Supervisor. 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.

    CONTEMPORARY LATIN POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the CEO of an A-List Music Library that has nailed down countless placements.

    NOTE: It's been a while since this company has requested new music from our members. This could be an excellent opportunity to get on their radar and build a relationship!

    “Mia” by Bad Bunny ft. Drake

    Please submit well-crafted Latin Pop Songs with strong melodies, catchy choruses, and great lyrics. Your submissions should have modern Latin Pop production and should sound like they would be "at home" on a playlist with the references above. Be sure your vocal performance is super current-sounding and well-performed from top to bottom.

    TAXI Tip: Your Songs should feature vocals performed in Spanish, or at least mostly in Spanish with a little English sprinkled in.

    Your Songs need to be 2 to 3 minutes in length (it's fine to go a bit longer). Lyric themes can vary but should be appropriate and relatable to what you normally hear in the Latin Pop genre.

    Please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, 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. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    Pop

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE POP ARTISTS or BANDS with Female Vocals are needed by a UK-based label with a deep catalog of hits!

    NOTE: This Record Label has never requested music from TAXI members, so this is a great chance to get their attention and hopefully a deal!

    They’re looking to find solid acts that would appeal to the fans of artists like:

    "Mine Right Now" by Sigrid

    "bad guy" by Billie Eilish

    Give them well-crafted, commercially appealing Songs that have an undeniable Indie vibe. Having memorable melodies and lyrics and super engaging choruses are all good ideas if you want your Songs to stand out! Your vocal performance should have plenty of attitude and a ton of Indie swagger. You’d be smart to submit at least 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. That said – 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 some killer songs to back it up), they still want to hear from you! Submit three Songs, online or per CD, and include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener that has been handpicked by the Record Label. Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, July 19th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190719PA

    Several INDIE POP SONGS with a RETRO-SOUNDING 1960s-Style and Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very active and fast-growing Music Library.

    NOTE: This company just recently started requesting music from TAXI's members, so chances are you don’t have any music in their catalog yet!

    They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall in the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference they gave us:

    “When They Fight, They Fight” by The Generationals

    Please send them original Indie Pop Songs that have a cool, lo-fi 1960s sound and style. A distinctive vocal sound/identity could also help you stand out for this pitch.

    TAXI Tip: Having some Motown-inspired grooves, rhythms, and melodies could also help your submissions shine for this pitch as well!

    Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are always a good bet. Do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe.

    NOTE: Broadcast Quality is needed, but that’s a relative term in the context of this request! Lo-fi, with some dated, old-school influences could work, but be careful! There’s “influenced by” and “lo-fi,” and then there’s just plain dated, poor-sounding recordings.

    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.

    “Zimzalabim” by Red Velvet

    "Uh-Oh" by (G)I-DLE((여자)아이들)

    “Twicer” by Fancy

    “Bon Bon Chocolat” by EVERGLOW

    NOTE: Your Songs should feature vocals performed in Korean, but you can also have a little English sprinkled in!

    Your Songs need to be 2 to 3 minutes in length (it's fine to go a bit longer). Lyric themes can vary but should be appropriate and relatable to what you normally hear in the K-Pop genre.

    “Boy With Luv” by BTS ft. Halsey

    "YES or YES" by TWICE

    “Really Bad Boy” by Red Velvet

    NOTE: Your lyrics DO NOT need to be in Korean. If your Songs are selected, your lyrics will be translated into Korean. Still, if your well-performed lyrics are already in Korean (or in Korean with some English sprinkled in), it would probably give you quite a head start!

    “take it back” by Lila Drew

    “Just Slide” by Harry Hudson ft. Jaden

    “In My Head” by ZEINA

    NOTE: This label's Co-President has a lot of super high-profile acts under his watchful eye, so the quality of the Songs and talent will need to be exceptional to impress him. That said, sending this high-powered executive some amazing Songs could be a career-changer for you!

    Give him HIT Songs that are undeniably great, with catchy melodies, great hooks, and a fresh production style that he has yet to hear! Having a polished vocal performance with some Urban swagger could help your Songs catch his attention.

    Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/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 what you've got.

    CONTEMPORARY R&B ARTISTS are needed by the Co-President/Head of A&R at a top-tier Major Label.

    He's currently on the prowl for some great new acts that would appeal to fans of artists like (but not limited to) Ceraadi, Miguel, SZA, etc., etc., etc.

    Please listen to the following examples to get an idea of what they want to sign:

    WARNING: Some of the references may contain graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

    “Loyal” by Ceraadi

    “Sky Walker” by Miguel ft. Travis Scott

    “Just Us” by DJ Khaled ft. SZA

    NOTE: This label's Co-President has a lot of super high-profile acts under his watchful eye, so the quality of the Songs and talent will need to be exceptional to impress him. That said, sending this high-powered executive some amazing Songs could be a career-changer for you!

    Please submit commercial-sounding Songs with soulfully expressive melodies, a solid song structure, and a super catchy chorus. Your Songs should have a ton of mainstream appeal, and your production should be on par with the references. A strong vocal performance with a confident delivery will likely help you stand out for this request.

    NOTE: You'd be smart to submit THREE Songs per submission so he can see if you’ve got more than one hit waiting to be heard. He's not looking for "One-Hit Wonders." He wants artists he can help build long-term careers.

    Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/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 what you've got.

    Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include lyrics, 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 Tuesday, July 30th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190730RB

    Rap / Hip Hop

    Return to List of Categories

    Latin/Spanish-Flavored, Contemporary Hip-Hop/Dance SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Major Publisher for an (up to) $40,000 placement in a HUGE Animated Feature Film!

    The Publisher is eager to find a Mid-to-Up-Tempo Hip-Hop/Dance Song he can pitch directly to the Music Supervisor of this big budget film. They're looking for something in the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference we got directly from our client:

    “Por la Noche” by Mala Rodríguez

    NOTE: The film's Music Supervisor likes “Por la Noche” as an example of what could stylistically work in this Film. They are not looking for clones, copies or soundalikes, but they’d love to find something that captures a modern vibe and feel, mixed with a heavy Latin/Spanish influence. For this request, the reference track is more of an example than a rule!

    Quoting our client: “We're looking for something Hip, with a cool Contemporary beat. Your song can be a hybrid of Hip-Hop or Dance/EDM, but it has to have something that brings out the Spanish elements of this film, and maybe even crosses a bit into the Flamenco side of the spectrum.”

    Give them Latin/Spanish-flavored Songs that will make the film's viewers want to dance! Your submissions should be commercially appealing with a super memorable chorus. Your lyrics and vocals can be in Spanish, English, or a combination of both. The vocal performance needs to be really good for this high profile film!

    NOTE: The selected song is likely to be used a lot throughout the film as well as part of the main title!

    Lyric themes should be positive and family friendly. The song will be "attached" to one of the film's characters, and his personality is comically overconfident so we're guessing that lyrics that support that idea could be a good thing. But don't make them too on the nose. Please avoid anything that's moody, dark, serious-sounding, or depressing. Emotionally upbeat is certainly the way to go!

    Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands are strongly recommended for this pitch. NO Profanity, please.

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

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $40,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This Publisher offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You’ll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Writer’s share. They’ll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this. Please submit as many Songs you’d like, online or per CD. Your submissions will be judged on their “usability factor” by the screener who was hand-picked by the Publisher. He will be primarily judging based on his gut - if the screener thinks your material is “on target” enough to be used for this massive movie, it could get forwarded! No Full Critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, July 18th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190718FM

    They're looking for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got from the company:

    “HandClap” by Fitz And The Tantrums

    “123456” by Fitz And The Tantrums

    Please submit commercial-sounding Pop/Rock Songs that are well structured and that color a little bit outside the lines. Your submissions should be rhythmically and melodically appealing, with authentic-sounding Rock Band instrumentation and some electronic elements spread throughout. Your vocal performances should have plenty of personality and a ton of Indie swagger.

    Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing to the Licensing Company and Music Supervisors as well.

    FEMALE-FRONTED HARD ROCK/METAL BANDS are needed by a hot UK-BASED LABEL that's on the lookout for great new talent to sign.

    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 that you have in your bio.

    MAINSTREAM ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an International, Grammy-Winning Record Producer who has a BIG list of Hits to his name!

    NOTE: This Producer has never requested music from TAXI members, so this is a great chance to get on his radar!

    Please listen to the references our client gave us to get an idea of the sound and style that might get this Producer excited:

    “Rescue Me” by OneRepublic

    “She's So Mean” by Matchbox Twenty

    “Natural” by Imagine Dragons

    Please send contemporary Rock Songs with great song structure, compelling melodies, and choruses that sound like what you’d expect to hear on the Rock Charts. Some electronic elements can work for this request, but you’d be wise to keep them somewhat minimal so you don't take away from the Rock vibe. Your vocal performances should be well performed from start to finish and have a solid Rockin' delivery!

    This producer often co-writes with other composers and songwriters. This could be a great opportunity to build a relationship with an A-list writer/producer, possibly leading to co-writes, and killer cuts and placements.

    NOTE FROM THE CLIENT: The company would like you to include some supplemental information on your lyric sheet – tell us what you did on your recordings. Did you produce them? Sing them? Write them? Play the drums or guitars on them? All of the above? Please let us know on your lyric sheets. Be specific!

If you’re a new artist or band and don’t have much of a track record yet, our client politely asks that you refrain from submitting to this particular request.

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

    Singer / Songwriter

    Return to List of Categories

    SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with raspy Male Vocals are needed by the CEO of an A-List Music Library that has nailed down countless placements.

    It's been a while since this company has needed new music from our members, so this is could be an excellent opportunity to get on their radar and build a relationship with them. They’re currently on the prowl for compelling Songs in All Tempos that have the general style and sound of these references (which we got directly from the Music Library):

    “Little Drop Of Poison” by Tom Waits

    “Hold On” by Tom Waits

    “Meet You In The Middle” by Chuck Ragan ft. Brian Fallon

    NOTE: They’re not looking for clones or soundalikes of these Songs, but pitching something that's in the general vibe and ballpark would be welcome! Similar mood, vocal tone, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Please submit well-crafted Singer/Songwriter Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the references above. You can go with a relatively Stripped-Down Guitar/Vocal approach as well as versions with a small ensemble. Be sure your whiskey-soaked vocals are one-of-a-kind, with a delivery in the general style of the referenced acts.

    NOTE: Our suggestion is to go back and listen carefully to the references and ask yourself, "Would my Song fit on a playlist with those Songs?” Recently recorded Songs or old vintage master recordings can both work for this pitch, as long as your Songs have that raspy vocal tone they’re looking for!

    Your Songs need to be 2 to 3 minutes in length (it's fine to go a bit longer). No specific lyric themes were requested; however, it’s always a good idea to avoid lyrics that specifically mention names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for feel and vibe. Era-Appropriate Broadcast quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share of performance royalties and the company will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure your material is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright to pitch for this. 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.

    Do you have SONGS that received airplay and gained traction in the 1990s or before? If you do, we've got a company that would like to connect you with potential investors. Keep reading!

    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, Adult Contemporary, Singer/Songwriter, R&B, Folk, Rap, Country, etc.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This company is primarily looking for Vintage Songs with some real traction in their past. They've asked for VINTAGE HITS that have had a considerable number of radio plays and/or sales. If your songs don't have the kind of track record we've described, our client politely asks that you refrain from submitting to this particular request.

    Please submit ORIGINAL, VINTAGE Songs that gained some notoriety when originally released. So if you own old masters that are buried in your attic collecting dust, now it’s time to bust them out! Genre-appropriate instrumentation and production and a well-performed vocal are all a must!

    NOTE: If you have inherited old recordings (perhaps Songs that a parent or grandparent wrote) and you can prove that you own and control their use, send them in!

    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. Please do not submit songs that are already in other catalogs or signed to any publishing companies as you must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity.

    "All Along The Watchtower" by Jimi Hendrix

    “Break On Through (To The Other Side)" by The Doors

    "The Wizard" by Blown Free

    "Bell Park Loon" by Spiny Normen

    NOTE: Please submit old masters only. 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 with reasonably good fidelity that sounds authentic to the time period.

    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.

    ORIGINAL ROCK SONGS RECORDED IN 1980-1989, 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 references they gave us, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor

    “Thunder In Your Heart” by John Farnham

    “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins

    “The Final Countdown” by Europe

    The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality, and you can submit old masters OR old demos.

    Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! This Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period.

    This is 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 Company 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. Win-win!

    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 buyout 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 1980-1989, 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. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! 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. 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 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, July 28th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190728RS
