    “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera

    Christmas / Holiday

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL R&B STYLE CHRISTMAS SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

    Give them Songs in All-Tempos that would fit on a Christmas playlist with artists or acts like (but not limited to) Ariana Grande, Ne-Yo, Boyz II Men, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the references to get a general idea of what they need:

    “Let It Snow” by Boyz II Men

    “True Love” by Ariana Grande

    “I Want To Come Home for Christmas” by Ne-Yo

    Please submit ORIGINAL, well-crafted R&B-Style Christmas Songs that instantly put listeners in the Christmas/Holiday spirit. Your submissions should have great melodies, with instrumentation and production that you would commonly find used in the R&B and Christmas genres. Your soulfully expressive vocal performance should be in the broad and general stylistic ballpark of the examples and other songs like them. A great chorus could be the clincher on this pitch!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be consistent with the themes commonly heard in Christmas music - family time, home for the holidays, snow, fireplaces crackling.... you know the drill! 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.

    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 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 Monday, March 25th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190325XM

    Country

    Return to List of Categories

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a super strong Music Row Publisher for an up-and-coming Country Artist. They’re looking for top-notch, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would appeal to the fans of (but not limited to) acts and songs like:

    “I Don't Know About You” by Chris Lane

    “Downtown's Dead” by Sam Hunt:

    “Rebound” by Drew Baldridge

    Quoting the Publisher: “We’re looking for hit Country Songs with content. No songs about drinking.”

    Please submit well-structured Country Songs with visually descriptive, conversational lyrics that have captivating melodies and a memorable chorus! The bar for this request will be high so please be sure your Song is on par with Nashville’s best songwriters. You’d be smart to have a solid vocal performance to get the Publisher and Artist excited about cutting your Song.

    TAXI Tip: Adding a hint of Pop-leaning production could give you an edge for this pitch!

    Stripped-down demos or full productions are both okay to submit to this publisher! In either case, your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Publisher. 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 11:59 PM(PST), on Wednesday, March 27th, 2019. TAXI #Y180327CC

    Electronic

    Return to List of Categories

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE ELECTRO POP ARTISTS/BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-respected Indie Record Label that’s looking for great new acts to sign to their roster. They’re looking for acts that would appeal to fans of artists like (but not limited to):

    "Youth" by Luna Shadows

    “Me & You” by HONNE

    “Someone New” by Astrid S

    Showcase your unique Indie Electro Pop sound and personality! Your songs should have catchy melodies, with plenty of hooks and a chorus that launches it into orbit. Having a cool “lo-fi” sound and production with a distinctive Indie-style vocal approach could put you in the sweet spot for the request.

    NOTE: They’ve asked for 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’d still like to hear you! Submit three Songs online or per CD. Include lyrics, photo, and a bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Wednesday, April 10th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190410EP

    ORIGINAL SONGS ABOUT “TIME” with Male or Female Vocals are needed for an up-to $20,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placement in a National TV Commercial.

    We purposely passed on putting references in this request as they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful.

    This Ad Agency is open to hearing Songs in any popular/commercially viable genre; however, that probably doesn’t include genres like New Age, Death Metal, Avant-Garde Jazz, etc. You’d be smart to submit songs in genres that get radio airplay, or that the masses consider "commercially viable" - things like Pop, Rock, Adult Contemporary, Blues, Singer/Songwriter, R&B/Soul, Folk, Rap/Hip-Hop, Country, etc.

    TAXI TIP: It’ll be a good idea to make sure your Song has the word “Time” in the Chorus/Hook. Having the word “Time” mentioned in the verse or just popping up once in the song won’t cut it. It should be big, obvious, and central to the chorus/hook. Songs that feel positive and emotionally uplifting are likely to work better because this is for a TV Commercial. Dark or sad songs generally don't get as much love in the world of TV Commercials.

    Please send well-crafted songs with lyrics about “Time” that are compelling on all cylinders: rhythmically, melodically, and lyrically.

    NOTE: Contemporary and Vintage recordings are both fair game for this request, as long as the sound quality is appropriate for the genre and good enough to air in a TV Commercial.

    Please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase your chances of nailing this request. 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. Genre appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee is (up to) $20,000, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Direct-to-Ad-Agency pitch. You’ll keep all ownership of the Copyright and Master Recording, but you won’t be able to license your song 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 Master and Composition rights to pitch for this opportunity. DO NOT submit anything that’s already signed to a publisher or in any other catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All Submissions will be reviewed based on their “usability factor” by the Screener, who has been handpicked by the Ad Agency and will be judging based on his “gut” - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, March 25th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190325TM

    RE-IMAGINED COVERS of well-known SONGS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Publisher for a wide range of Film, TV, and Commercial placements.

    NOTE: We’re not giving any references for this request, as we think they might be more limiting than helpful. You are encouraged to use your imagination!

    Put your thinking caps on, ladies and gents, and send this company re-imagined versions of well-known songs – aka HITS – delivered in ways that are noticeably different from the style and approach of the original. This company will consider a cover of ANY commercially released Song in ANY Genre, Tempo, or Style.

    Be creative! There should be some originality to your cover; it can’t sound like the original. It has to be unique and able to stand on its own. Still, you’d be wise to try to stick to the original melody and lyrics of the song(s). This will keep it grounded in the listener's mind, while still giving it an entirely new stylistic treatment. For example, if the song was a fast Punk song originally, try creating a dreamy, Folky, or Country/Singer/Songwriter version. If it was a huge Rap/Hip-Hop hit with a male rapper, try a slower, Singer/Songwriter version that’s acoustic-based with a delicate female vocal. You get the idea! Mix it up, change it up, and mash it up! The sky’s the limit for this request!

    If you take the time to notice, you'll see and hear quite a few movie trailers, TV promos, and TV commercials that use re-imagined songs. Take notes and master the methodology!

    Your Songs must be well recorded, clean, and at least 2:00 in length. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal, with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your song used during that term, you can get your rights back. Since this company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control your Master recording. 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. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019.  TAXI #Y190403CS

    Instrumental (Multiple Genres)

    Return to List of Categories

    CONTEMPORARY POP/URBAN POP INSTRUMENTALS are needed for an (up to) $1,500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placement in a Digital/Online Commercial for a Women’s Athletic Apparel brand.

    They’re on the hunt for rhythmic, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Full-Length Instrumentals (not Cues) that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references our client gave us:

    “Happy” by Pharrell

    "Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake, Lil Jon

    “Let's Get Loud” by Jennifer Lopez

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentalsonly

    Please submit well-crafted Instrumentals with plenty of energy that can be used for motivation during a workout. Be sure your production is solid, with danceable rhythms, great-sounding instrumentation, and engaging melodies.

    TAXI Tip: Your Instrumentals should have the kind of energy that makes people want to dance and push them through a workout! Think of the type of music that would be playing during an Indoor Cycling or Aerobics class. That’s what they need!

    All submissions should be between 2 to 3 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $1,500, depending on the ultimate placement. This request is for digital/online ads, hence the relatively low creative fee compared to a broadcast Commercial. Online ads that do well sometimes migrate to broadcast or cable TV, with additional fees paid when that happens!

    This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Agency placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the Master License Fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis, by a screener that's been hand-picked by the Ad Agency. Short critiques only.

    ORIGINAL DUB REGGAE INSTRUMENTALS with some MIDDLE EASTERN Flavor are needed by an International Music Library with worldwide distribution through Universal!

    Please submit original Dub Reggae Instrumentals that sound like the real thing and generally reflect the vibe, feel, and style of the references mentioned above. Your submissions should have captivating melodies and incorporate some authentic-sounding Middle Eastern instrumentation with Reggae/Caribbean style Dance beats, grooves, and rhythms.

    Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length give or take. Non-Faded/Buttoned endings will work best for this pitch.

    1. Orchestral with Brass.
    2. Military Brass and Drums.
    3. Fife and Drums.

    Please submit Instrumental versions of The Star-Spangled Banner that are musically compelling from start to finish. You’d be very wise to stick to the original melody so that your Instrumental is easily recognizable. If you stray from the original melody, your cover may not be as appealing or usable.

Any material that sounds stiff, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven won’t work well for this pitch.

    Broadcast Quality is needed.

    FUN HIP-HOP INSTRUMENTALS are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by WEDNESDAY for an up-to $15,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placement in a National TV Commercial. They’re looking for an Up-Tempo Instrumental that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference we got from the Ad Agency:

    “C'mon” by Big Gigantic Ft. Griz

    The Ad Agency is currently looking for a super hip Instrumental in the general vein of “C'mon”. To be clear: They’re NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, energy, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    NOTE: Although your tracks need to have the same type of vibe and energy as the reference, you should NOT have any vocals or any non-lyrical vocal parts/chants to your Instrumental.  Also, please do NOT add sound effects like record scratches or pops.

    Please submit fun, innovative Instrumentals that have a similar appeal to the above reference. Your production should have infectious grooves, with electronic and organic-sounding elements that are tastefully blended together. Instrumentals that have funky bass lines and cool horn parts might add a nice “flavor” and help you grab this Ad Agency's attention!

    Ultimately, what they’re looking for is a FUN Instrumental that has a Hip-Hop drum beat, a bit of a Jazzy vibe, and some cool electronic elements that build the excitement! Give the reference another listen to get a feel for what they're asking for!

    TAXI Tip: Think of the type of music that would be made if David Holmes, Skrillex, and DJ Shadow had a “hypothetical” musical baby!

    All submissions should be between about 2 to 4 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings will work best. 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.

    CONTEMPORARY TRAP-Style INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a NON-Exclusive, Music Supervisor-owned Library with a huge number of TV placements to its credit. They're currently on the prowl for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (TAXI # D190214CT), but the company didn’t get enough material to satisfy all the requests they got for this genre so they need more! They've asked us to run this request to our full membership list to see if we could find them even more. If you submitted to TAXI #D190214CT, please submit different material this time around!

    WARNING: The following references may contain graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

    “Jumpin on a Jet” by Future

    “Put a Date On It” by Yo Gotti ft. Lil Baby

    “Real Ties” by Lil Skies

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

    Please send them Trap-Style Instrumentals that are current-sounding and have a modern feel. Build your Cues around a central melodic theme, while layering instruments in and out as your Cues progress to create a sense of forward momentum. This will create options for the editors who use these Cues. Trap-leaning production is what is needed, so bring out your coolest-sounding synths and 808s! Any virtual instruments you use need to sound modern and of high quality.

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length or longer. Non-faded/Buttoned endings are highly recommended. 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.

    Please submit well-crafted Instrumental versions of "Battle Hymn Of The Republic" that are musically engaging from start to finish. You’d be very wise to stick to the original melody so that your Instrumental is easily recognizable. If you stray from the original melody, your cover may not be as appealing or usable. If you are using Virtual Instruments please be sure they sound realistic and authentic. Any material that sounds stiff, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven won’t work well for this pitch.

    MIDDLE EASTERN-Style CHILL-OUT INSTRUMENTALS are needed by an International Music Library with worldwide distribution through Universal!

    NOTE: This company has just started requesting music from TAXI members, so it's very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog. This is a killer opportunity to get in a very busy Music Library's catalog!

    They’re looking for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Instrumentals that would fit well on a playlist with the following references below:

    Although the references have vocals, please submit instrumentals only for this pitch.

    Please send them well-crafted Instrumentals with an authentic Middle Eastern sound that falls within the generally laid-back vibe and style of the references above. Your production should have authentic-sounding Middle Eastern elements/instrumentation, with smooth, mellow grooves, and slick, grooving beats. As is often the case, simpler is better, and this request is all about establishing a chill, Middle Eastern mood. Anything that feels stiff or obviously MIDI-driven and quantized won't work for this request. It needs to feel human and authentic.

    Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length, give or take. Non-Faded endings will work best for this pitch. 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.

    Please submit contemporary Instrumentals based around keyboard or strings that can be used for sports promos and Olympic-type competitions.

    MODERN GUITAR-Driven ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a NON-Exclusive, Music Supervisor-owned Library with a huge number of TV placements to its credit. They're currently on the prowl for Mid-to-Up Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

    “MANTRA” by Bring Me The Horizon

    “Dance Macabre” by Ghost

    Although the references have vocals, this request is forInstrumentalsonly

    Please submit well-crafted Instrumental Cues that generally reflect the guitar-focused approach of the references above. Your submissions can include some synth elements, but please be certain that they are adding to the contemporary sound of your track and are of high-quality. Drum sounds are also very important and must sound as close to a real drum kit as possible - no thin and synthetic-sounding drum samples! Send them Broadcast Quality Cues that sound like they're done with real players using real instruments. This Music Library is very selective, but the catalog gets lots of placements!

    Quoting the Music Library Owner: “Your Instrumental Cues must be contemporary and have clean and crisp-sounding guitars. Be sure your Instrumentals have enough sectional contrast and melodic interest to drive a scene and connect sonically with listeners.”

    IMPORTANT: All submissions should be between1:10 and 1:50in length. Good edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. 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. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    A RANGE OF TRADITIONAL-SOUNDING LATIN INSTRUMENTALS is needed by a very successful Music Library that gets tons of placements in TV Shows, Films, and Movie Trailers.

    We’re not providing any references for this request, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful. They’re open to anything ranging from Salsa, Banda, Cumbia, Bolero, Samba, Tango, Narcocorrido, Ranchera, etc., etc., etc.

    Please send in well-crafted, full-length Latin Instrumentals (not cues) that could be used in travel documentaries and food shows to help establish onscreen locations. Your Instrumentation can vary; however, make sure it sounds authentic to the style and sub-genre! Assuming that you’ll be using mostly Virtual Instruments, please make sure they sound convincing. Instruments that sound stiff, obviously quantized, or overtly synth-y will not work for this company.

    TAXI Tip: Over-dubbing one or two real instruments over virtual ones can greatly add to the authenticity!

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Solid edit points and buttoned/stinger endings are encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    SINGER/SONGWRITER-STYLE INSTRUMENTALS are needed for an up-to $200, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placement in an Independent Feature Film. This Producer has used a lot of TAXI Members' music in previous films!

    He's on the hunt for a Mid-Tempo, Acoustic-driven Instrumental in the general stylistic ballpark and vibe of the following reference we got from the client:

    “Two Day Rule” by Michael Andrews (0:00-1:47)

    This Music Supervisor/Producer is looking for a song that could work as a replacement for “Two Day Rule,” which is currently temped into this Film. They’re NOT looking for clones or sound-alikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

    Quoting the Film's Producer: "We need something that's light funny, flirty, and with no lyrics. We like the light-hearted quirkiness with elements of hope in the reference. We have this [instrumental playing] in the background while our lead character thinks about his glory days in College and the friends he had."

    Please give them well-crafted Instrumentals with authentic-sounding acoustic-based instrumentation (acoustic guitars, pianos, etc.) You’d be wise to keep your submissions light, and also a bit quirky and hopeful, as they’re not looking for anything dark or moody.

    Please do not copy the reference in any way, shape, or form. Use it as a general guide for the overall feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this placement is between $150 - $200, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Film Producer placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the Master License Fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Monday, April 15th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190415SS

    HOPEFUL, INSPIRATIONAL-Sounding INSTRUMENTALS are needed for Corporate Videos by a very busy Music Library with a long list of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials. They’re searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following examples:

    Uplifting & Inspiring Background Music 1

    Uplifting Orchestra

    Uplifting and Inspiring Background 2

    Please submit well-composed Instrumentals that are emotionally uplifting and full of hope. Your submissions can include Electronic, Organic, and/or Orchestral Instrumentation, or a hybrid of any combination of the three! There are many possibilities that could work for this request.

    With that said, you need to convey that uplifting and inspirational feeling without getting in the way of dialogue, so please avoid anything that would be considered distracting. Having a developmental “arc” that makes your piece feel like it’s moving forward and going somewhere is a good idea.

    Quoting the Music Library: “Writers should be aware that corporate video music doesn’t mean cheesy, low production values or bad MIDI sounds, of course!”

    Your submissions should be at least 2 – 3 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned endings with good edit points throughout your piece are needed for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way shape or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal, and a 50/50 split for any applicable download fees by clients from their Library!

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

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

    “Decisions” by KREAM

    “No Sleep” by Martin Garrix ft. Bonn

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

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

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

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

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

    Your production and recording quality needs to be strong enough to represent your Instrumental well. You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fanbase, or impressive sales or streaming figures you may have. If you’re a new Producer/Remixer/DJ and don’t have much of a story or track record, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit three Instrumentals, online or per CD, and be sure to include photos and a bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE POP ARTISTS/BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very well-respected Indie Record Label that’s looking for great new acts to sign to their roster. They’re looking for acts that would appeal to fans of artists like (but not limited to):

    “Queendom” by AURORA

    “World Class Cinema” by Gus Dapperton

    “Trampoline” by SHAE

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Listing (TAXI # Y190223PA), 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 TAXI listing # Y190223PA, please send in different material this time around.

    Submit great Songs that showcase your distinctive Indie sound and style, with awesome production and a vocal performance that’s all your own (but feels at home in the Indie Pop genre.)  Utilize a solid song structure, youthful (think Millennials) lyrics, and a chorus that will make them beg to sign you. Your submission and overall sound should reflect the “Indie” aesthetic the referenced acts share.

    NOTE: They’ve asked for 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’d still like to hear you! Submit three Songs 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 Monday, March 25th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190325AP

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE POP/INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a 5-Star Publisher that’s pitching to several upcoming TV shows for $5,000 to $12,000 syncs. Please send Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic wheelhouse of these references we got directly from the client:

    “My Enemy” by CHVRCHES ft. Matt Berninger

    “Wide Awake” by Parquet Courts

    “Julia” by Mt Joy

    Please submit fresh, innovative Pop or Rock Songs that have a cool Indie sound, vibe, and style. For this request, you’d be wise not to send anything that’s too slick, as they don't want anything that sounds too commercial or polished. Your submissions should be rhythmically and melodically engaging, with a tasteful blend of authentic-sounding live instrumentation and some electronic elements. Your vocal performance and overall sound should reflect the “Indie” aesthetic the referenced acts share.

    LYRIC Tip: Your lyrics and hook ideas need to be developed around meaningful, universal concepts that can adapt to a variety of circumstances. They’re NOT looking for anything romantic or centered around Love. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your songs more usable.

    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.

    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 material that sounds like it came from a Music Library.

    This Music Publisher’s sync fees typically range from $5,000 - $12,000, depending on the ultimate placement. 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. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI A&R person selected by the client - No full critiques.

Sorry, client's request, not ours.

    Please submit well-structured Pop Songs that are on par with what you'd hear on the Top 40 Charts. Your submissions should have captivating melodies and an unforgettable chorus. Your instrumentation/production can vary, but should be current, fresh, and original. Having a compelling vocal performance with a strong, confident delivery could help your song stand out for this request!

    NOTE: They’re also open to hearing Songs that lean a bit toward the R&B/Urban side of the spectrum, as long as your songs are still rooted in the Pop genre.

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

    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.

    Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics, photos, and a bio.

    TOP 40-Style POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a "Best Of" TAXI-branded Compilation/Playlist that will be sent to a long list of Music Supervisors, Music Libraries, Music Publishers, Ad Agencies, and Independent Film Makers!

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

    We've tasked our A&R Team with finding great, “sync-able” Top 40-Style Songs. All songs will be judged on their “usability factor,” with TAXI's A&R Team members asking themselves, “Would this be desirable to an industry pro who needs music for a TV Show, Film, or Commercial?”

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The songs that are short-listed by our A&R Team will be given to a high-level Music Supervisor and a big deal Music Licensing Agent, and they will choose which songs ultimately go on the Compilation!

    Please send fresh, Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could be heard on a playlist with artists like Mabel, benny blanco, Marshmello etc., etc., etc. Please listen to these references to get yourself in the general ballpark:

    “Don't Call Me Up” by Mabel

    “I Found You” by benny blanco & Calvin Harris

    “Happier” by Marshmello ft. Bastille

    Please submit well-structured Pop songs that reflect the contemporary style of the referenced artists above, with big melodies, relatable lyrics, and an unforgettable chorus. Songs should have top-notch production and a polished vocal performance from start to finish!

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

    Your Songs should be full-length (approx. 3 to 4 minutes long, give or take). Non-Faded, buttoned/stinger endings are recommended.

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

    You need to own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Do NOT submit material that’s already been signed to ANY other publisher or catalog. Please submit as many 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 (PST) on Wednesday, April 17th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190417PS

    Rap / Hip Hop

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL, OLD SCHOOL RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS – RECORDED BEFORE THE YEAR 2000 – with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Your submission should NOT have any electronic-sounding instruments (such as synths, leads, pads etc.) Try your best to keep your submission as organic-sounding as possible.

    If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references or anything that would have been on a playlist with those acts, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” by Lauryn Hill

    “Thugz Mansion (NY God's Son version)” by Nas ft. Tupac

    “Runnin” by The Pharcyde

    NOTE: Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists' songs, sounds, or any other form of media. However, if you want to sample yourself, go for it!  We think a guitarist with a Looper Pedal (and a solid drum beat backing him) could do some amazing stuff with this opportunity!

    You can submit old masters or old demos for this pitch. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this Publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings. They’re much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period.

    This Publisher is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and Feature Films when they need music that comes from a specific time period.
    The Publisher pays you upfront for the master rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share 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 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 before the year 2000 - 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 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 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 (PST) on Thursday, March 28th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190328VR

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

    Please send them Hip-Hop Songs that have a banging sound, a modern beat, and a memorable chorus that sticks in your head. Make sure your Rap has catchy hooks, creative metaphors, and inventive wordplay.

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

    They didn’t specify any lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. It's not an absolute requirement, but it just makes it easier for a Music Library to pitch it for various opportunities! Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Also, do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media.

Your song should be lyrically and vocally engaging and have a delivery that has plenty of swagger and attitude. Please make sure your song has a clean, polished-sounding mix!

    Lyric themes can vary but should be something that’s currently heard on the Rap/Hip-Hop charts minus any profanity. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably work best, but they’re not an absolute necessity. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Please avoid any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with any other Companies or Catalogs.

    Rock

    MODERN INDIE ROCK ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a new, well-funded Music Platform designed to help artists raise funds while also engaging their fans!

    Quoting our Source: “They’re open to hearing Artists and Bands on all ends of the Indie Rock spectrum, however, it must be MODERN. No Grunge or '90's Super Chunk kind of guitar Rock, or even Pixies or Siouxie Sioux MIDI-driven Goth Rock.”

    They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist with the following references and other acts in the same wheelhouse:

    “Pretty Pimpin” by Kurt Vile

    "Gold Rush" by Death Cab for Cutie

    “Talk To God” by Goat

    “Singularity” by New Order

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This company is primarily looking for Artists or Bands that have Songs with a large number of plays on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music, with a large following on social media (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). 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.

    Give them well-crafted Indie Rock Songs that highlight your ability to captivate an audience. Your submissions should have a great Indie vocal performance, solid melodies, and a chorus that sounds like it's ready for the major leagues. Adding some electronic elements can work, but you’d be wise to keep them at a minimum so they don’t take away from the Indie Rock vibe.

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

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

    “I Need You Tonight” by INXS

    “One Thing Leads To Another” by The Fixx

    Please send them original Pop/Rock songs that have a genuine 1980’s sound. Your submissions should have well-performed, authentic-sounding Rock band instrumentation with a compelling vocal performance that authentically reflects an ‘80s delivery and style.

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded in the late or early 1980s, or they can be songs recently recorded and just inspired by that era.

    NOTE: The bar will be high for this request. This Music Supervisor wants music that "sounds better than what they would normally get from the music libraries."

    Lyrics that sound typical of the genre and don’t mention specific names, places, dates, times, brands, or profanity will be appreciated. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $4,000, depending on the ultimate placement. These will be Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties.

    INDIE POP/ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an up-to $200, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placement in an Independent Feature Film. They’re on the hunt for a Mid-to-Up-Tempo Song in the general stylistic ballpark and vibe of the following reference we got from the client:

    “Rock It” by Little Red

    This Music Supervisor/Producer is looking for a song that could work as a replacement for “Rock It,” which is currently temped into this Film. They’re NOT looking for clones or soundalikes!

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “We like the nice beat of the reference song and the piano chords. It sounds like a familiar song, isn't too heavy-handed, but just a tiny bit quirky.”

    Please submit well-crafted Songs with a distinct, slightly quirky Indie Pop/Rock sound and vibe. The more it sounds like a real band, the more they’ll like it!

    Simplistic lyrics (similar to the reference) might work best for this request. You’d probably be wise to avoid specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity in your lyrics if you can. It just makes it easier for a Music Supervisor to use it! Do NOT copy the referenced song in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this placement is between $150 - $200, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the Master License Fee and any applicable performance royalties.

    "1950” by King Princess

    "Restless Wind” by Passenger

    Please submit emotionally compelling songs with touching melodies, captivating lyrics, and an infectious chorus. Your solid vocal performance should have a distinct, Indie-style delivery. Instrumentation can be as a simple as an acoustic guitar/vocal or piano/vocal. A small, subtle ensemble/band behind the singer could work as well.

    NOTE: You’d be smart to submit THREE songs per submission, so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material, but it is not required.

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

    ORIGINAL VINTAGE ROCK SONGS, recorded BEFORE 1990, with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a really cool Music Licensing Company that has lots of awesome placements in Commercials, TV Shows, and Films.

    NOTE: We purposely passed on putting references in this request, as they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful. They’re open to virtually any contemporary Rock-Based genre/style such as: Classic-Rock, Glam-Rock, Garage-Rock, Metal, Rock & Roll, Brit-Rock, Blues-Rock, Punk, Psychedelic-Rock, etc., etc., etc.

    It really just boils down to this: They’re looking for Masters (or decently recorded Demos) of great ROCK songs that came from the 1950s through the 1980s – period!

    Please send them old masters or demos of your original (no covers) Rock Songs that were recorded in the 1950s-1980s. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! They’re much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period rather than worrying about pristine recordings. Good demos and master recordings are all of interest to this company!

    BLUESY, SOUTHERN ROCK SONGS RECORDED BETWEEN 1970 - 1985 with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing. If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the following references, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Tush” by ZZ Top

    “Perfect Strangers” by Deep Purple

    “Sharp Dressed Man” by ZZ Top

    You can submit old masters or old demos for this pitch. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings. The Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period. They are the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and Feature Films, when music from a specific time period is needed.

    The Publisher pays you upfront for the master rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization.

    This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buy out deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary, depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.

    Make sure your Songs were actually recorded between 1970 - 1985, otherwise this company cannot use them! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only if the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

    Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your Songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Friday, March 29th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190329BR
