    ORIGINAL SONGS with NAUTICAL-THEMED Lyrics and Female Vocals are needed for a (up-to) $17,500, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement for a Theme Song in a Pilot for a New TV series on a Major Network.

    LYRIC TIP: They want to hear Songs about things like “Staying Afloat, Keeping Your Head Above Water, Finding Your Way to The Shore” etc.

    NOTE: The Music Supervisor does not have a clear direction just yet besides lyric themes, so we’re purposely passing on putting references in this request, as they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful.

    The genre is open for this request, but you’d be smart to submit songs that would likely end up on the radio or the charts and would be considered “commercially viable”: Pop, Adult Contemporary, Hip-Hop, EDM, Pop/Rock, Soul, Rock, Electronic, Indie Pop, Punk, or Indie Rock, etc. could all work for this pitch!

    Give them Up-Tempo, emotionally upbeat Songs that have “clever melodies and lyrics” with an engaging chorus and a fun, polished vocal performance. Your instrumentation can vary from a simple acoustic/vocal performance, to a much fuller production (and anything in between.)

    Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity are strongly recommended for this request. 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 is a “SEMI-EXCLUSIVE” (our terminology) deal. The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $17,500, depending on the ultimate placement. You’ll keep all ownership of the Copyright and Master Recording, but you won’t be able to license it for any other Projects for the duration of the term of agreement, which will be determined by the Client and you. The music you submit for this pitch CANNOT be signed with any other publishers or catalogs, as they’ll need to know that your piece won’t being playing anywhere else while this show is on the air. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Tuesday, August 21st, 2018. TAXI #Y180821NO

    Christmas / Holiday

    Return to List of Categories

    FUN, ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a high-end Music Licensing Company with a very long and impressive list of great placements in TV, Film, and Commercials. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that you’d expect to hear on Christmas playlists with songs like:

    “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlR0MkrRklg

    “Only Thing I Ever Get For Christmas” by Justin Bieber: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4LPBwHgZiU

    “Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfF10ow4YEo

    Please submit original Christmas songs with plenty of mainstream appeal to get listeners in the spirit of the holiday season. Your submissions should have great melodies, a strong chorus, and current-sounding production. Having a solid vocal performance could also help you nail this pitch!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be consistent with themes commonly heard in CURRENT Christmas Pop music. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share, and you'll get 100% of the Writer's share. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. Since this is an Exclusive deal, please be sure your material 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 - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Thursday August 30th, 2018. TAXI #Y180830XP

    Country

    Return to List of Categories

    YOUTHFUL COUNTRY/POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Major Record Label A&R Executive for an up-and-coming act working on her next record. They’re on the hunt for well-crafted, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that you’d hear on a playlist with these references they gave us:

    “Wild” by Catherine McGrath: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pmeUFRclRs

    “Hello Summer” by Danielle Bradbury: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0d6eJcWYqBc

    “I Know How to Make a Boy Cry” by Tegan Marie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcBUNClV9T8

    Quoting our source: “Songs should have a playful or reflective mood with good storytelling.”

    Please submit Contemporary Country/Pop Songs that would fit right in with the Country hits on today’s charts, but skew toward the youthful side of the spectrum – not childish, just not too mature in subject matter or overall sound. Your lyrics should be relatable to teenage girls, and your vocals should have a slick, youthful Country sound in the general ballpark of the referenced artists. Songs can have a bit of a Pop sound, but should maintain a Country style and feel, overall.

    Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, 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. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, August 19th, 2018. TAXI #Y180819YC

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY ARTISTS or BANDS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s looking for fresh new talent to sign to its roster.

    NOTE: A listing for this request ran four months ago as #Y180415CA, but the label still hasn’t found what they were looking for and asked us to run another search. If you submitted to listing #Y180415CA, please send in different material this time around.

    They’re open to virtually any contemporary genres/styles from Country/Pop, Alt Country, Cowpunk, Red Dirt, Country Rock, Bro Country, Rockabilly, Country Rap/ Hick Hop, Christian Country, Progressive Country, and even “regular” Contemporary Country!

    Whichever genre or subgenre of Country you’re pitching, the music should sound current, fresh, and contemporary. Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs are typically the most desirable pitch in the Country market, but, if you’ve got an awesome, career-making ballad, take the shot!

    NOTE: They didn’t give us specific parameters or references, other than asking us to find them “new, original, and talented artists.” Please be sure to submit your most competitive material for this pitch, and make sure your submission is contemporary and commercially viable within the range of Country subgenres.

    Song craft needs to jump out of the speakers for this pitch. Because of the wide range of Country styles, our Screeners will be applying this simple mandate: “If you hear something that you’d personally walk into the president of a successful record label, slap it on his or her desk and say, ‘I think this is your next big act (or big hit),’ then forward it to this label.”

    Submitting material that colors a bit outside the lines is okay, but if you go so far outside the norm that your songs can’t easily find a home on a radio station or a chart, then your music will likely be less appealing than the more commercial submissions.

    Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your material well. You can submit masters or strong demos for this pitch. The screeners will be looking primarily at the songs and the artistry. The mixes or a guitar sound can be fixed, but if the songs and artistic performance aren’t there, it’s going to be tough to get a label president excited.

    You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fan base, or impressive sales or streaming figures in your bio. If you’re a new artist or band and 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 you! Please submit THREE Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Tuesday, August 21st, 2018. TAXI #S180821CC

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a successful and very active Music Licensing Company with a really impressive list of Film and TV placements, many of which have been for TAXI members. They’re eager to find modern, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the stylistic wheelhouse of artists like Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Blake Shelton, etc., etc., etc.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Listing (TAXI # Y180609CC), but they didn’t find what they were looking for and asked us to re-run the listing one more time. If you submitted to listing #Y180609CC, please send in different material this time around.

    Please listen to the following references for the sound and vibe they’re on the hunt for: WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

    “Beautiful Crazy” by Luke Combs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rItv9i6c7AY

    “Rich” by Maren Morris: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcPh9UOhRPI

    “I'll Name The Dogs” by Blake Shelton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAsN4lSa7O0

    NOTE FROM THE MUSIC LIBRARY: They want to hear songs with exceptional vocals, fresh melodic ideas, and great storytelling lyrics. Most Music Libraries want Country songs that have fairly universal lyrics, but this company gets placements that oftentimes need authenticity and not watered down Country lyrics.

    Please submit current-sounding Country songs with Nashville-quality lyrics, super catchy melodies, and a powerful Country chorus. Be sure your submissions have a well-crafted song structure and well-played Country-based instrumentation. Your vocal performance should have plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something that you’d expect to hear on the Country Charts. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity will be appreciated by the company, as they are easier to place.

    Do not copy the referenced 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.

    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.

    Electronic

    Return to List of Categories

    EXPERIMENTAL ELECTRONIC SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for an (up-to) $40,000 placement by a NON-Exclusive Publisher that’s supplying songs directly to the Music Supervisor of a critically acclaimed TV Series. They’re on the hunt for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark and vibe of the following references we got from the client:

    WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit imagery. Viewer discretion is advised.

    "Let's Live For Today" by Nicolas Jaar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grrrBeY31wk

    "Ghost" by The Acid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zpWBA9hc4k

    Give them unique Electronic songs with the general feel and style of the references above. Your song should use innovative, trend-setting production techniques and sounds to push the boundaries of Electronic music. An ethereal (and genre-appropriate) vocal performance could serve you well for this request!

    Lyrics that don’t have references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing. 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. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: The sync fee we were quoted is $40,000. However, our experience tells us that the sync fee quoted for this placement is probably based on them licensing a song from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fee could be lower for an unknown, independent act. We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s song would be in the $2,500 - $5,000 range. It could go higher. We’re just being cautious and conservative.

    This Publisher offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal. 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’ll keep 100% of the original copyright and master. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit 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 by a TAXI screener who was handpicked by the Publisher – Short critiques only.

    CONTEMPORARY CHILLWAVE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a High-End Music Licensing Company with a super impressive array of great placements in Feature Films, TV Dramas, and Commercials. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    “I’m Not” by Panda Bear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bc3SsiE_I4

    “Minors” by Toro y Moi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs9u0vgBzV0

    “Face Up” by Washed Out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rYw-aNm19Y

    Please submit lush, dreamy, and laidback Chillwave songs with mellow grooves, super cool electronic elements, and a vocal performance that’s in the general vibe of the references. Your production should contain luscious synths, loops or pads, with appealing melodies and a rhythmically engaging drumbeat.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something that’s typical of what you’d expect to hear in the Chillwave genre. Universal lyrics will work best, so you’d be smart to avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Also, do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    Gospel

    Return to List of Categories

    OLD FASHIONED, VINTAGE-SOUNDING GOSPEL SONGS with Male, Female, Solo, Duet or Choir Vocals are needed for several (up-to) $300, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer/Music Supervisor placements in a Independent Feature Film.

    They’re looking for Songs in All-Tempos (recently recorded/Retro-sounding or Vintage Recordings can both work) that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references we got from our client:

    “Jesus Gave Me Water” by Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3d1jvP8FG1E

    Client Note: “We love the toe tapping quality of this song, with lots of harmonized vocals (male or female). Minimal instrumentation, or perhaps even acapella is preferable.”

    “Wade in the Water” by the Norman Luboff Choir https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxsH4fN-NGE

    Client Note: “We love the dense, ominous, choral harmonies. Love the call and response-style lyrics. A repeating lyrical motif (i.e. “Wade in the Water”) is also preferable. Instrumentation can be minimal.”

    "Precious Lord Take My Hand” by Mahalia Jackson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMQkmnqJjSE

    Client Note: “Solo vocal performance (male or female), with preferably minimal accompaniment (piano preferred.) Slower tempo with sorrowful or mournful lyrics and sound.

    “He’s Still in the Fire” by The Speers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j9fx09hGTE

    Client Note: “We love the cheerful and upbeat quality of this song. Love the strong lead and backup vox. Full instrumentation is preferable: guitars, keys, drums, etc.”

    “The Last Mile of the Way” by The Blind Boys of Alabama https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7LHQ0VOEA4

    Client Note: “Love this two-step-style song featuring a strong lead vocal (male or female) with backup singers and full instrumentation. Looking for an easy-going, carefree feel, to be played over a less tense, reflective moment in the film.”

    NOTE: Original or Public Domain Gospel Songs can work for this request, but please double check to make sure the song(s) you submit are truly in the Public Domain!

    This Film’s producer is currently looking for a bunch of songs that would work well in place of the above references, which are all currently temped in and need to be replaced.

    Your submissions should be deeply inspiring and emotionally engaging, both melodically and lyrically. Your songs should have genre-appropriate, vintage-style production and instrumentation. Having a compelling vocal style that sounds consistent with the approach heard in the references (and the genre in general) could also help you in you nailing this request!

    Lyric Tip: Lyrics should include traditional Gospel imagery and themes, such as (but not limited to) God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, classic Bible stories or characters, deliverance/salvation, the power of blood, water, love, sacrifice, death and resurrection, etc.

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

    The estimated license fee for these placements are (up to) $300, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer/Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights (no publishing splits), plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties. There are no performance royalties for covers.

    You must own or control your Master (and Copyright, if submitting a Original song) 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, August 22nd, 2018. TAXI #Y180822OG

    Hard to Classify / Specialty / Novelty

    Return to List of Categories

    A RANGE OF ORIGINAL SONGS RECORDED IN THE 1960s with Male Vocals are needed for several (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in a Feature Film with Major Stars. The Supervisor is looking for great, romantic, Mid-Tempo songs or ballads in English or Italian. Please listen to the following references we got directly from the Music Supervisor to get a feel for the range of music that could work well in this film:

    “Quando Quando Quando” by Tony Renis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnFsHR-f2wc

    “Fools Rush In” by Ricky Nelson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ibZUXvIJIA

    “Spanish Eyes by Engelbert Humperdink: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoB0ci45Nzo

    “It’s Now Or Never” by Elvis Presley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkMVscR5YOo

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “Primarily, we want authentic songs and recordings from the era – anything pre-1965 (perhaps late 50’s or early 60’s). We’re potentially open to newer recordings in the style of the era, but they must be authentic in style, sound, instrumentation, and in the way they were recorded and mixed. Please do NOT send recently recorded material that you tried to replicate the sounds of that era. This Music Supervisor will know the difference!

    Please send well-written, well-performed songs with great vocals that distinctly deliver the era, style, sound, and vibe. While the songs selected by this Supervisor will mostly be used as background source music, the better they are, the greater the chance of being used in one of the “featured” slots in this Film.

    Please do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed

    The estimated license fees for these placements will generally range between $500 - $1,000, depending on the ultimate use. These will be Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements, so you’ll get 100% of the Sync Fee, you’ll keep 100% of your Publishing and Master ownership, and you’ll also get 100% of any applicable performance royalties. No Publisher splits! You must own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD.

    Instrumental (Multiple Genres)

    Return to List of Categories

    CURRENT-SOUNDING HIP-HOP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed for a bunch of $300, Direct-to-Supervisor placements for a NEW Web Series on YouTube Red. They’re on the hunt for fresh, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic range of the references below:

    WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

    “Ric Flair Drip” by 21 Savage, Offset, Metro Boomin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPTlvQ1Zet0

    “Chun-Li” by Nicki Minaj: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wpm07-BGJnE

    “Tyga” by Taste ft. Offset: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjxulQ1bEWg

    Although the references above have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only! Give them current-sounding Rap/Hip-Hop Instrumental Cues that have a polished production and sound. Your production elements should all sound modern and generally fit the vibe and style of what you’d hear on radio today. In other words, no dated or obviously pre-stocked synth sounds or drums. Be sure to structure your submissions around a simple, but catchy melodic theme, while adding and removing instrumentation as your Cue progresses to keep it dynamically compelling and forward-moving.

    All submissions should be 30 to 60 seconds long (give or take), with button endings. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Also, do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (TAXI # D180719EP), but the company didn’t get enough material and asked us to run this request to our full membership list to see if we could find them even more great material. If you submitted to TAXI #D180719EP, please submit different material this time around!

    “You Don't Know Me” by Jax Jones ft. RAYE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKB4cioGs98

    “More Than Friends” by James Hype ft. Kelli-Leigh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIsWmB28AdM

    “All Stars” by Martin Solveig ft. ALMA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STmLv9pLuX0

    Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch. Give them well-crafted Electronic Pop Instrumental Cues that are fresh and current-sounding, with contemporary instrumentation and catchy melodies that are in the general stylistic ballpark of what you’d hear in the references above. Your production should have great-sounding synths and plenty of “ear candy.”

    Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes long. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    ORGANIC, ORCHESTRAL UNDERSCORE INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Music Licensing Company with a long and very impressive list of great placements in TV, Film, and Commercials. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    “The Sixth Station” by Joe Hisaishi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ADRlIx-qI8

    A Beautiful Mind Soundtrack – Main Theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr18I1PCECg

    Theme from “To Kill a Mockingbird” (This section, only! 0:00 – 1:36) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_t98LWNwUhI

    IMPORTANT NOTE: These examples above were likely scored to picture and go through different moods, tempos, etc. because of scene changes. For the purpose of this request, you’d be very wise to stick to a singular motif and mood throughout your entire piece, so your submission is cohesive from top to bottom. If your piece goes through different moods, tempos, and styles, it’s going to be nearly impossible to use it in a scene.

    Give them well-crafted Instrumentals that effectively deliver a textured display of instruments blending in and out of each other to create an engaging piece of Underscore. If you’re using any virtual instruments, they need to sound incredibly convincing! Please avoid submitting anything that sounds stiff, synthetic, or MIDI-driven. The more authentic-sounding, the better! While this is the perfect opportunity to show off your composition and arrangement skills, you should still convey one emotion, one mood, and one motif from beginning to end. Having a developmental “arc” that makes your piece feel like it’s moving forward is a good idea.

    All submissions should be about Two-Minutes long, give or take, with good edit points and Non-Faded, Buttoned endings included. 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 offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share, and you'll get 100% of the Writer's share. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. Since this is an Exclusive deal, please be sure your material is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs.

    TOP 40-Style, HIP-HOP/URBAN INSTRUMENTAL TRACKS are needed by a signed Artist, Songwriter, and Vocal Producer that’s currently writing and pitching to several big artists’ projects. He’s on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Tracks in the general stylistic range of the following references we got from him:

    WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

    “I'm Upset” by Drake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS4ESheuHDY

    “Havana” by Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCjNJDNzw8Y

    “Whole Lotta Lovin'” by DJ Mustard, Travis Scott: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z9ib5yLSdQ

    NOTE: The bar will be High for this request, so pull out your best! They’re going to be looking for Instrumental Tracks that sound more like they belong on a hit record, and less like what might be found in a Production Music Library.

    Although the references above have vocals, this pitch is for Instrumental Tracks only! Please send well-crafted, contemporary-sounding Hip-Hop/Urban Instrumental Cues that would sound right at home if you heard them under the raps coming from some of the best acts in the genre. Having inventive sounds, catchy melodies, and a creative rhythmic approach will help you nail this request. Please make sure that your submissions do not have much melody already baked in. This writer(s) will need some room to add the icing on the cake in the form of their own topline.

    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 whoever adds the topline. Please do not submit songs that are already in any other catalogs or signed to any other publishing companies, including Non-Exclusive deals. Please submit as many Instrumental Tracks as you’d like, online or on CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by somebody selected by the writing team – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Wednesday, August 29th, 2018. TAXI #Y180829GR

    CONTEMPORARY HIP-HOP/RAP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV Sync Licensing. They’re searching for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the references below:

    WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

    “Watch” by Travis Scott ft. Lil Uzi Vert, Kanye West: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3iLo_JI9oY

    “Ric Flair Drip” by 21 Savage, Offset, Metro Boomin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPTlvQ1Zet0

    “Be Careful” by Cardi B: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3uG4T8pJfw

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only. Please send them current-sounding Rap/Hip-Hop Instrumentals that are rhythmically and melodically engaging and have a modern sound. Your Instrumentals should have heavy, speaker-knocking percussion, catchy melodies, and cool-sounding ear candy throughout to keep it from sounding too linear or repetitive. Any virtual instruments you use need to be current-sounding and of high quality. Don’t send dated arrangements! Trap-leaning production can work for this request.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Please make sure your song’s production is as original as possible, as they’re looking to avoid songs that utilize pre-made construction loops/kits. Build your own samples, or use live instruments!

    All submissions should be 3:00 to 4:00 minutes long, give or take, with Non-Faded, Stinger endings. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. 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! This company offers EXCLUSIVE deals and pays an upfront fee to buy the copyright and master recording. You’ll keep the writer’s share of the publishing. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short critiques only.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS of SOLO PIANO JAZZ INSTRUMENTALS that were recorded in 1980 or before are needed by an A-List Film and TV Music Publisher. They are NOT looking for songs just like the references below. They’re on the hunt for songs from that period or earlier! If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Blue Monk” by Thelonious Monk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrKpffh8TY8

    “Hallucinations” by Bud Powell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yATDqcTPWI0

    “Take the A Train” by Duke Ellington: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGK70IkP830

    The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They’re much more interested finding music that sounds authentic to the time period.

    TAXI Tip: You can submit old masters or old demos for this pitch!

    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 up front checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.

    They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

    Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    ACOUSTIC-Driven, SINGER/SONGWRITER INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Music Licensing Company with a long and impressive list of great placements in TV, Film, and Commercials. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    “What I Wouldn’t Do” by A Fine Frenzy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrJA5eDhh9I

    “From Afar” by Vance Joy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYUcqmpHJbk

    Even though the references have vocals, they’re looking for Instrumental Cues only for this pitch!

    Please send them well-crafted, acoustic-based Instrumental Cues that could work for a wide range of sync placements. Little accents like handclaps, foot stomps, or whistles could give your submission some added spark, but they’re not absolutely necessary.

    Your submissions should feature a central melodic idea. Build momentum by adding and subtracting different elements to add dynamics and interest as your Instrumental progresses. Please avoid using any instruments that sound stiff, synthetic, or obviously quantized and MIDI-driven.

    All submissions should be at about 2 minutes long (give or take). Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger Endings will work best. Please do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as general guide for overall feel, texture and tone. Broadcast quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share, and you'll get 100% of the Writer's share. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. Since this is an Exclusive deal, please be sure your material is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    Jazz

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE WEST COAST JAZZ SONGS with Male or Female Vocals that were recorded BEFORE the year 1990 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV Sync licensing. If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, or any other popular acts from that era, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “It’s Always You” by Chet Baker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvpgiHqgfow

    “Take Five” by Carmen McRae and The Dave Brubeck Quartet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNWsr6N72yQ

    “Time After Time” by Chet Baker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIcI-1txigI

    TAXI Tip: You can submit old masters or old demos for this pitch!

    West Coast Jazz is often seen as a more calm style than Bebop or Hard Bop. The music relies relatively more on composition and arrangement than on the individually improvised playing of other Jazz styles. West Coast Jazz also tends to be more experimental with Jazz ensembles of different sizes (such as octets and nonets, as opposed to the more standard trios, quartets and quintets) and interesting combinations of instruments.

    The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They’re much more interested finding music that sounds authentic to the time period!

    Note: They’ve asked for THREE songs per submission, so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. This company recently signed a TAXI act to a full record deal!

    Your production and recording quality needs to be well balanced, and good enough to represent your song 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 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, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit three Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    ORIGINAL POP PUNK ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for NON-Exclusive deals by a fast-growing, Los Angeles-based Production Company.

Your songs should be built around some great melodies, a bit of aggression, and a big anthemic, in-your-face chorus. Be sure your production and arrangement are full of authenticity - standard Punk band instrumentation will work best for this request.

    Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, they’d prefer to avoid hearing anything that’s particularly Political! Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are always a good bet. 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.

    Please send them well-crafted songs that generally mirror the vibe of the references mentioned above. Your arrangements should be full of gritty, organic instrumentation, and your performances should have plenty of raw, Country-fied Punk melodies and lyrics. A mix of jangly acoustic strings and high-octane drum beats might be the perfect combination here. A little bit of Surf/Punk and/or Rockabilly couldn’t hurt! The more believable your overall performance sounds, the better!

    Important Note from the Production Company: “We’d really love to hear something that reminds us of the band the Scotch Greens, but with an awesome female vocalist on top.”

    “Rumspringa” by the Scotch Greens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxRwczTMMUI

    ALTERNATIVE HIP-HOP SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an (up-to) $40,000 placement by a NON-Exclusive Publisher that’s supplying songs directly to the Music Supervisor of a critically acclaimed TV Series. They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that have the general style and vibe of the following references we got from them!

    WARNING: The following references have some graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

    “Praise The Lord (Da Shine)” by A$AP Rocky ft. Skepta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kbj2Zss-5GY

    “Two Lips” by Joey Bada$$: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tv7heYX63o0

    Please submit inventive Songs that are a bit outside the mainstream spectrum of Hip-Hop music, with innovative beats and a compelling chorus. Your songs should be well-crafted from start to finish and have a rhythmically and melodically engaging beat, with an confident, attitude-filled vocal delivery.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should have an approach that’s in the general wheelhouse of the references above. Avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity is also a good idea.

    Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: The sync fee we were quoted is $40,000. However, our experience tells us that the sync fee quoted for this placement is probably based on them licensing a song from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fee could be lower for an unknown, independent act. We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s song would be in the $2,500 - $5,000 range. It could go higher. We’re just being cautious and conservative.

    This Publisher offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal. 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.

    ORIGINAL, HAWAIIAN-Style VINTAGE SOFT ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals that were recorded BEFORE 1985, are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV Sync Licensing opportunities. If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Kanaka Wai Wai” by Olomana https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKQrahj1IqU&feature=youtu.be

    “Seabird” by Olomana: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B96Ii-2oi1s

    “Sun Lite, Moon Lite” by Country Comfort: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11VPwSulvGQ

    NOTE: Please don’t limit yourself to just the style of the references! This publisher is very open to hearing more traditional styles as long as it has that authentic, Vintage ISLAND Vibe. Transport listeners to Hawaii!

    CLASSIC NEW YORK-Style ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an (up-to) $40,000 placement by a NON-Exclusive Publisher that’s supplying songs directly to the Music Supervisor of a critically acclaimed TV Series. They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that have the general style and vibe of the following references we got from them!

    "Walk on the Wild Side" by Lou Reed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oG6fayQBm9w

    "Waiting For The Man" by Velvet Underground: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61fy8Y1Ojt4

    "This Must Be The Place" by Talking Heads: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9gK2fOq4MY

    "Marquee Moon" by Television: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlbunmCbTBA

    Quoting Our Source: “Think edgy, exploratory, minimal, avant-garde, between genres, and influenced by the many immigrant cultures of New York, with a definitive look toward the unique and the modern.”

    Give them well-crafted, innovative songs that have a unique, classic, and angular Rock sound, vibe, and style. Be sure your submission has authentic-sounding Rock instrumentation, with catchy melodies and an infectious, memorable chorus. You should have a distinctive vocal performance that’s sung with conviction and authenticity if you’d like to get the Publisher and Supervisor’s attention on this request.

    Lyrics that don’t have references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing. 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.

    NOTE: The sync fee we were quoted is $40,000. However, our experience tells us that the sync fee quoted for this placement is probably based on them licensing a song from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fee could be lower for an unknown, independent act. We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s song would be in the $2,500 - $5,000 range. It could go higher. We’re just being cautious and conservative.

    This Publisher offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal. 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’ll keep 100% of the original copyright and master. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit 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 by a TAXI screener who was handpicked by the Publisher – Short critiques only.

    NYC-Style, MODERN ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for an (up-to) $40,000 placement by a NON-Exclusive Publisher that’s supplying songs directly to the Music Supervisor of a critically acclaimed TV Series. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references our client provided to us:

    "Golden Age" by TV on the Radio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wTHxUl9WdQ

    "Happy Idiot" by TV on the Radio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaKVy-FlaUA

    "Heads Will Roll" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auzfTPp4moA

    TAXI Tip: They’re looking for edgy, exploratory, and relatively avant-garde Songs for this one. If you’re confused as to what they’re looking for, please review the references for the Experimental sound they seek. In a nutshell: They’re looking for something like that, but NO copies or clones!

    Please submit innovative-sounding songs that are a little outside the mainstream spectrum of the Rock genre. Your submission should have great production, memorable melodies, and a rock-solid chorus. Your vocal performance should be strong, with a unique quality that sits nicely alongside the referenced artists.

    They didn’t specify any lyric themes, however, if you could imagine hearing your lyric fitting in with the references above, then you’re probably in the ballpark. Please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, barnds, 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.

    ORIGINAL METAL SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several $2,500, Direct-to-Music Supervisor, NON-Exclusive placements in a top Video Game. The Supervisor is looking for Up-Tempo Songs (Vintage or Modern recordings can both work!) that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references the Music Supervisor gave us:

    “When Legends Rise” by Godsmack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WH-E98MltJc

    “Ace of Spades” by Motorhead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcf7DnHi54g

    “Heading Out On The Highway” by Judas Priest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKuuHfMx3CQ

    “Run To The Hills” by Iron Maiden: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86URGgqONvA

    NOTE: This game has several radio and source music channels that are user selectable. Five or more original songs are needed for each channel/genre!!!

    No Covers -- Original songs only, please.

    This game needs exciting, driving, and energetic Metal songs that are rhythmically and melodically engaging, with a strong memorable chorus. Having great, authentic-sounding Rock instrumentation, solid musicianship, and a lead vocal with lots of attitude and a ton of Rock swagger will get you to the front of the line for this request!

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

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $2,500. These are 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!

    NOTE: Video Games don’t pay performance royalties, but there are times when the songs used in games are additionally used in promotional materials for the game (films, soundtracks, commercials, etc.), which can generate 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. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by the Music Supervisor himself (time permitting), or by a TAXI Screener selected by the Supervisor if his schedule gets too busy - No full critiques.

    GOTH ROCK ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-known Indie Label that’s always on the lookout for great new talent to sign. They’re looking hard to find great Goth Rock Acts that could be found on the same playlist as bands/artists like Fangs on Fur, Lebanon Hanover, She Past Away, etc., etc., etc.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Listing (TAXI # Y180723GR), but they didn’t find what they were looking for and asked us to re-run the listing one more time. If you submitted to listing #Y180723GR, please send in different material this time around.

    Please listen to the following references to get in the general ballpark of the type of act they’re looking to sign:

    "Snake" by Fangs on Fur: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DTORCOrZ4c

    "Gallowdance" by Lebanon Hanover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPw7nlluRdc

    "Kasvetli Kutlama" by She Past Away: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oy2x_kHCy4w

    Give them well-crafted Goth Rock Songs that highlight your band’s ability to captivate an audience. Your submissions should be true to the genre and engaging from start to finish, with authentic Goth Rock instrumentation and a dramatic, moody vocal performance. Believability is a key factor for this opportunity, so songs that sound like they were performed by a real Goth act will have better chances of getting this Label’s attention!

    Note: They’ve asked for THREE songs per submission, so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. This company recently signed a TAXI act to a full record deal!

    Your production and recording quality needs to be well balanced, and good enough to represent your song 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 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, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit three Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.
