    CONTEMPORARY POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Major Record Label A&R Executive for a charted, but relatively new artist that’s working on her next record. Please submit contemporary-sounding, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be heard the same playlist as (but not limited to) songs like these:

    “Ciao Adios” by Anne-Marie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqob4D3BoZc

    “It Ain't Me” by Kygo, Selena Gomez: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5drYkLiLI8

    “Now Or Never” by Halsey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzQTc0-iBX8

    They’re looking for songs that have a strong commercial Pop structure and presence, and have “Top 40 radio hit” written all over them! Be sure your songs sound current and polished, with an overall vibe that’s similar to the artists mentioned above. Your demo’s production and recording quality also needs to be competitive enough to get them interested in your song, although it’s likely they’ll be cutting a new version. Lyrics concepts should be in line with what you’d hear on today’s Pop charts, and with a fresh approach. They’re not looking for the same old thing, but they also don’t want anything that’s so far outside the norm that it’s not ripe for radio or commercial success. 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. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Tuesday, August 25th, 2017. TAXI #S170825CP

    Please submit songs with top-notch writing, touching melodies, and a hit-worthy, hook-driven chorus. Your song should be emotionally engaging, and instantly relatable to fans of this genre. Be sure to have a vocal performance that’s super strong and really brings it home.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something in the range of what you’d hear in the Adult Contemporary genre. Relationship-based songs are the go-to topic, but you don’t have to limit yourself to those. The more universal your lyrics are the better, so please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced songs in any way, shape, or form. Use the references only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    NOTE: This company has a high bar and they get tons of requests every day from Music Supervisors all over the world! They tend to gravitate toward music that sounds more like records rather than Cues from music libraries.

    This Publisher offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share.

    INSPIRING ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful “One-Stop” Music Publisher that specializes in music for Nationally Broadcast TV Commercials.

    Note: This listing recently ran as #Y170726AR, 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 #Y170726AR, please send in different material this time around.

    They’re searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fit well on a playlist with artists like Imagine Dragons, MGMT, etc., etc. Please listen to the following references the client gave us to get an idea of what they’re looking for:

    “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKopy74weus

    “Time To Pretend” by MGMT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9dSYgd5Elk

    “Believer” by Imagine Dragons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wtfhZwyrcc

    Quoting the Publisher: “We need more material with an arc and changing dynamics. Really looking for Cues that have epic rock elements mixed with great synths that build towards a crescendo. The moods can range from cinematic to emotional, to hopeful, imaginative, and powerful.”

    Although the references above have vocals, this pitch is for Instrumentals ONLY, but you can include Non-Lyrical Vocals.

    Please submit well-structured Instrumental Cues that have a contemporary and inspiring sound and style. Your Cues should have top-notch Musicianship, with current-sounding Instrumentation, and fresh dynamic elements. Be sure to add and subtract layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses to create dynamics and forward momentum, and to keep it from sounding too linear or repetitive.

    All Submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal, with a 1-year reversion. If they don’t get your song used during that term, you can get all your rights back. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share.

    FUN, UBEAT INSTRUMENTALS are needed for an (up-to) $7,500, Direct-to-Supervisor placement as the Opening Title Music for a NEW Reality TV Show. They’re on the hunt for Instrumentals that could work well for Reality TV Shows in the general stylistic wheelhouse of these examples:

    “The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 5 Theme Song”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJXxjzKTDfo

    “Keeping Up With The Kardashians Theme Song”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV03Ybm0oWE

    “The Real Housewives of Orange County Theme Song”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fglREz58jtM

    “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Theme Song”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EQtLTVgJ7A

    Please send them really well-crafted Instrumentals, with catchy, Reality Show Theme-style melodies, an energetic beat, and an overall vibe or musical character that “sounds” like what you’d expect one of these shows to sound like: fun, funny, and probably somewhat campy and dramatically comedic! Be sure your Instrumental has lots of forward movement, both rhythmically and melodically.

    Note: Any Virtual Instruments you use need to sound really well-executed and very real.

    All Instrumentals should be at least 60 seconds long, be easy to edit, and have a stinger ending that sounds like what you’d expect to hear right before the first scene of a Reality Show starts – think of an emotionally positive exclamation point that’s musical!

    TAXI Tip: Edit points in this context (in our opinion) should not be the type that use a rest! Anything that’s got a solid beat (kick, snare, percussion) that an editor could cut on should work as an edit point. TV themes generally don’t have rests because that could break the forward momentum that musically makes viewers feel like, “Get ready, pay attention, here comes the show!”

    Please do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this is up-to $7,500, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor/TV Production Company placement. TAXI has been told that you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights (no publishing splits). We think that could be incorrect information, as many production companies would want to control the theme song and not have it available for other uses. Consider yourself informed that if they love your piece and want to use it, you might be asked to let them buy it out, with you keeping the Writer’s share and getting applicable performance royalties on top of the upfront buyout fee. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit one to three Instrumentals online or per CD. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Monday, August 21st, 2017. TAXI #Y170821UI

    INDIE ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a prolific Music Library that has years and years of great credits in TV Shows, Feature Films, and TV Commercials. They’re searching for a bunch of Indie Rock Cues in All Tempos that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

    Song/Instrumental Reference 2:
 https://youtu.be/etXUEMRnESk

    Song/Instrumental Reference 3: https://youtu.be/tMfG4d0IbVM

    Please give them well-crafted Instrumental Cues that are melodically and rhythmically strong and on-the-money, with instrumentation you’d typically expect to hear in a current Indie Rock band. Your Cues should have cool guitars riffs, and rockin’ drum parts that deliver an authentic Indie style vibe and feel.

    TAXI Tip: Please avoid hybrid influences of any other genres for this pitch!

    Quoting the Music Library: “Tracks should have an authentic ‘Band’ sound, and ‘indie’ aesthetics.”

    Please submit Instrumental Cues that are at least 2 minutes in length. Short intros, or no intro at all, easy edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are strongly recommended for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way shape or form.

    Song/Instrumental Reference 2: https://youtu.be/7ciV6zRN3jI

    Song/Instrumental Reference 3: https://youtu.be/yAn1dRy9cPA

    Give them well-crafted Instrumental Cues that rhythmically and melodically create an emotionally upbeat mood that would work for a wide range of sync placements. Your production should be in a more Singer/Songwriter style rather than anything that’s too Pop or Electronic sounding. As always, layer your instruments in and out as your Cue progresses to give it forward momentum, some dynamic interest, and prevent it from sounding repetitive or linear. You’d also be smart to avoid anything overly busy or frenetic that could distract from dialog.

    Please submit Instrumental Cues that are at least 2 minutes in length. Short intros, or no intro at all, easy edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are strongly recommended for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way shape or form.

    INDIE SYNTH POP BANDS and/or ARTISTS with Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by an A-list Music Supervision Company for several projects. Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be heard on the same playlist as artists like (but not limited to) Grimes, Passion Pit, CHVRCHES, etc., etc., etc. Listen to the references we got from the client to get in the general wheelhouse of what they’re looking for: “Flesh without Blood” by Grimes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tv9YoYCKNoE “Carried Away” by Passion Pit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiEwJTOderQ “The Mother We Share” by CHVRCHES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mTRvJ9fugM Please submit great songs that showcase your distinctive, innovative, Indie Synth Pop style and sound. They’ll be most attracted to songs with memorable melodies, killer hooks, and a bigger-than-life chorus. No surprises there! Your vocal performance should be really strong, with a uniquely identifiable Indie quality and attitude. While this isn’t a typical request for a specific placement, this A-List Music Supervision Company (with several big name Supervisors on their staff) has so many scenes they need Indie Pop music for, they want to build a “go-to” stash of bands and artists they can reach out to when they need real artists, not music library tracks. In other words, they’re looking for authenticity for this in-house list. Note: As is often the case when Supervisors are looking for authentic artists they can sync, they want to see some background in the form of a bio. You’d be wise to make sure your bio includes any highlights such as, (but not limited to), touring, fanbase, or impressive sales or streaming figures you may have. They have not specified how much the sync fees will be because they don’t know exactly which episodes these songs would ultimately get placed in. We “guesstimate” that sync fees will be in line with other shows and rates (typically $1,500 - $2,500 per sync), and of course, there will likely be back end payments through your PRO. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics, photo and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener that’s been handpicked by the Company - No full critiques.

    CHART TOPPING POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Grammy-Winning Producer for a Multi-Platinum Pop Star that’s working on her next album. They’re looking for super-catchy, hit-worthy songs in All-Tempos that you’d expect to hear from artists like:

    Note: The bar for this will be high, but don’t assume that it’s impossibly high! Although this artist and producer will certainly hear songs from some of the best writers in the business, the reason this producer is looking for material from TAXI’s members is to find something fresh and new!

    “Panda” by Desiigner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5ONTXHS2mM

    “Caroline” by Amine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j8ecF8Wt4E

    Even though the references have vocals, they’re looking for Instrumentals only for this pitch! Please submit fresh Hip-Hop/Rap Instrumentals (not Cues) that are rhythmically and melodically engaging, and structured like a modern Hip Hop/Rap track. Your production elements should all sound super contemporary and generally fit the vibe and style of what’s on the Rap Charts today. In other words, no dated or obvious pre-stocked synth sounds or drums. They’re not looking for “Library Sounding” Cues for this. They need tracks that sound like they’d be used on a record, but with no vocal!

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length, and have non-faded, buttoned endings. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (Great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up-to) $1,500, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, 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.

    Please submit well-crafted Songs that are rhythmically, lyrically, and melodically awesome and would appeal to fans of the artists mentioned above. Your vocal performance should have a ton of attitude with some Hip Hop swagger. Having a well-produced demo could help get the producer and the act excited about recording your song, even though the producer would likely contribute to the production of your song. You never know… it could turn into a co-production. No promises, but stranger things have happened!

    “Bow Down” by West Side Connection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDcgeZEe7P4

    NOTE: This Music Supervisor is in need of Hip Hop, which she doesn't have a lot of. This is a great outlet and opportunity for any Hip Hop producers and artists to get in on the ground floor! She's one of the few Music Supervisors who doesn't send out briefs, as she'd rather pull the songs from her own library. Please submit original, well-crafted Hip-Hop Songs that have a convincingly, authentic west coast style, feel, and vibe (Old School or Contemporary recordings can both work). Make sure your music production is rhythmically and melodically interesting, and is in the general stylistic ballpark of the references. Be sure to have a vocal delivery that’s packed with tons of swagger and attitude. This Music Supervisor’s placements/syncs typically range from $1,500 - $5,500, depending on the ultimate use.

    TAXI Tip: The bar for this request will be closer to what songs on records sound like than what “music library Hip Hop instrumentals” sound like.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share.

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with acts like (but not limited to) Elvis Presley, Wayne Cochran, Chuck Berry, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the references to get yourself in the general stylistic ballpark of what they need for this TV Show:

    “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8JULmUlGDA

    Note: If your song is chosen, it could also be used on the TV Show Soundtrack album!

    Please submit well-crafted Songs that are in the general style of the references above. Your submissions should have great musicianship, great melodies, and a chorus that’s really solid. Your submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded in the late or early 1960’s, or they can be songs recently recorded and just inspired by that era.

    TAXI Tip: Lyric themes about love and forgiveness will work best.

    Universal lyrics that don’t have specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be more usable than lyrics that have those details. 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 (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $7,500, depending on the ultimate placement.

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE ROCK/ELECTRO POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Grammy-Winning Producer’s Publishing Company that’s pitching to a huge Indie Rock/Electro Pop band. Please send them Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fit on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to) The 1975, VHS Collection, The Neighborhood, etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get an idea of what could work for this pitch:

    “Chocolate” by The 1975 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHk5SWVO4p8

    “Waiting on the Summer” by VHS Collection https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NegV-ts35cY

    “Sweater Weather” by The Neighborhood https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCdwKhTtNNw

    Please submit songs that are rhythmically, melodically, and lyrically compelling, with a catchy chorus and a strong Indie aesthetic and attitude! This band tends to put out songs that blur the line of Indie Rock and Electro Pop, so its instrumentation is often a combo of cool guitar sounds and electro keys with plenty of hipster “affect” and ‘80’s sounding reverb.

    Note: Though this company often tell us they don’t need to hear fully-produced songs for their pitches, this band’s style of music would likely be best-pitched with at least some semblance of the sounds you’d hear coming from the references. Having a vocal style that sounds consistent with the approach heard in the references could also help you in your quest to nail this pitch!

    The ultimate deal will be negotiated between you and the Publishing Company. Please do not submit songs that are already in any catalogs or signed to any publishing agreements. The company will likely offer an exclusive publishing or co-publishing deal. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tone and overall vibe. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, Include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE, CLASSIC ROCK N’ ROLL SONGS with Male Vocals Recorded in the 1970’s 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 acts in the Rock genre from the late or earlier ‘70s, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “What Is And What Should Never Be” by Led Zeppelin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrqMdja4eYs

    “Doctor Doctor” by UFO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAhFKB2hoIU

    “Radar Love” by Golden Earring: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf53Pg2AkdY

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

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

    This Publisher is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and big Feature Films when they need music that is authentically from a particular time period. The Publisher pays you upfront for the master rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share of the publishing 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, cash-up-front deals with this company. Several have even received up front checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.

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

    Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit one to three songs online or per CD. Please include lyrics.

    “Cupid” by Daniel Powter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4dagWIRd48

    Please send him acoustic-driven Songs that are relatable, well crafted, and in the general wheelhouse of the references above. A simple acoustic-based performance with guitar and vocals can do the trick for this producer! He’s not afraid of hearing basic demos if they’re done well and the songs are super strong! You can also submit songs with a fuller production. A moving vocal performance will really help sell your song to this producer and the artist he’s working with.

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

    Please submit compelling, moody songs that have engaging melodies, thought provoking lyrics, and an honest vocal performance that will emotionally connect with the audience. Your songs can be built around a more stripped-down, Guitar/Vocal or Piano/Vocal arrangement or a fuller ensemble, as long as it fits the dark mood they’re looking for.

    TAXI Tip: They’re looking for lyric themes in the “neighborhood” of faith, renewal, being faithful, or fighting the good fight could all work. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity should work best. Do not copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).
