    TOP 40, URBAN SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Major Label A&R Executive for an HUGE, 2x Grammy Award winning Artist and Actor who’s working on his next album. They’re searching for radio-worthy, Mid-to-Up-Tempo HIT Songs that would appeal to fans of artists like (but not limited to) Nelly, Drake, Sage the Gemini, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to these references to get an idea of the sound and style that could work for this artist:

    “The Fix” by Nelly ft. Jeremih: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTUIT-E3oYQ

    Please submit current-sounding Songs that have super-catchy melodies, a banging, modern sounding beat, and a really memorable chorus that instantly sticks your head. They’re open to hearing songs that feature an R&B singer on the hook, but this artist can also rap or sing the hook himself. Songs can be edgy and little sexy, but nothing too raunchy. Be sure to have a fresh, swagger-filled vocal delivery with a similar melodic style and vibe as the songs mentioned above.

    Your recording and overall production quality needs to be clean, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Record Company - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, July 23rd, 2017. TAXI #Y170723US

    Please submit solid songs with great structure, fresh, well-crafted lyrics, lots of current sounding ear candy in all sections, and of course, a killer chorus that screams HIT! Your song should have a slight Pop appeal but still maintain an A/C sound that can work in both the Pop and A/C genres. Your vocal performance should have enough character, attitude, and emotion to help get the band and their label excited about cutting your song. Your demo production should be strong enough to be competitive as well. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics.

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals needed by a very successful Nashville-based independent Music Publisher with more recognizable cuts than you can shake a stick at! They’re on the prowl for some Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that sound like radio hits, but not the clichéd songs that so many people associate with Country music!

    Quoting the Publisher: “Please find me some contemporary, mid-to-uptempo and grooves only; must have lyrical substance; NO trucks, tailgates, cut off jeans, bonfires, drinking on a dirt road, etc.; those themes are all clichéd. Think alas like: ‘Humble And Kind,’ ‘The House That Built Me,’ ‘Live Like You Were Dying,’ ‘Three Wooden Crosses,’ ‘Kill A Word,’ etc. but with tempo.”

    “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awzNHuGqoMc

    “The House That Built Me” by Miranda Lambert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQYNM6SjD_o

    “Three Wooden Crosses” by Randy Travis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNDcXFGQWMY

    “Kill a Word” by Eric Church: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MH07rieK8w

    TAXI Tip: Remember that they’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo! A couple of the references are intended to show you the quality of the lyrics and overall song craft, but the tempo might be a tad slower than what this Publisher wants.

    You can submit well-performed, stripped-down, guitar/vocal demos or full productions, as long as it’s incredibly obvious how strong your songs are. Your melodies need to sound like “today or tomorrow” not yesterday. Your lyrics need to be substantive and incredibly well crafted with a conversational approach and visual details that help listeners get completely wrapped up in the song. Common Country song structures will serve you well.

    Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - with short critiques - by a TAXI A&R person handpicked by the Publisher! Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Saturday, July 22nd, 2017. TAXI #Y170722CS

Your submission should be compelling from start to finish, with conversational, visual lyrics packed with tons of details and imagery.

    “Her Love Won’t Turn On A Dime” by The Lonesome River Band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OCV786eUII

    Please submit well-structured, authentic Bluegrass Songs that would lend themselves well to three or four part vocal harmony stacks and classic instrumentation with banjo, acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and upright bass (or variations of thereof).

    Lyrics that are narratives about love lost, the hard life of folks who live in Appalachia or changes the region has gone through are all good ideas, but you don’t have to limit yourself to just those ideas, as long as your songs are the real deal.

    Quoting the Publisher: “I really need these submissions to be authentic Bluegrass, not Country or Folk with a banjo on the demo.”

    TAXI Tip: Any songs signed by this Publisher will likely be pitched to the top Bluegrass artists in the industry today. Even though you can submit demos that are pretty stripped-down, the songs themselves need to be really strong and the vocals on your demo should be good enough to get top Bluegrass artists excited about cutting your song(s).

    All deals will be done on a case-by-case basis between the Publisher and you. We expect the deals offered to be in the range of what’s typical for one-off signings. This Publisher is highly reputable and super well connected in the Bluegrass music industry.

Instrumental breakdowns are a key element of Bluegrass as well, but if you’re submitting to this Listing, you probably didn’t need us to tell you that, did you?

    Lyrics that are narratives about lost love, the hard life of folks who live in Appalachia or changes that region has gone through are all good ideas, but you don’t have to limit yourself to just those ideas as long as your songs are the real deal.

    “The Way I Am” by Eminem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQvteoFiMlg

    “Hail Mary” by Tupac: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkJA6SYwa94

    “Renegade” by Jay Z Ft.Eminem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVoqh9bvguU

    Please submit well-crafted Hip-Hop Instrumental Cues with an ominous sound and vibe for creepy or eerie scenes. Your Instrumental Cue should have a noticeable Hip-Hop vibe, feel, and style, with banging beats, melodic melodies, and some cool sounding ear candy. Be sure to add and subtract layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses to add some forward momentum and development.

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Easy edit points and buttoned endings are strongly encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form.

    SINGER/SONGWRITER-Style PIANO INSTRUMENTALS are needed for several $500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Production Company placements on a HIT TV Show on a Major Broadcast Network. Please submit super strong, Down-to-Mid Tempo Instrumentals that would be in the general stylistic ballpark of these references:

    “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekzHIouo8Q4

    “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB-5XG-DbAA

    “All of Me” by John Legend: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=450p7goxZqg

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only! Please submit emotionally moving Instrumentals that have solid musicianship from start to finish. A solo piano or a piano piece with some light accompaniment can easily do the trick for this pitch, as they are NOT looking for anything that’s “too grand or overly dynamic.” If you’re using a sampled/virtual Piano, please be sure that it sounds indistinguishable from the real thing! Anything that’s obviously synthetic or MIDI-driven won’t work for this pitch.

    Please submit songs that are edgy and full of energy and attitude, with great musicianship, crunchy guitars, and propulsive bass and drums. Your Songs should have typical Rock instrumentation, an awesome vocal melody and performance, with a big, rockin,’ anthemic chorus. Think of the type of songs you’d hear playing in a sports arena or in any sports-related highlight reel. Take no prisoners, and get people playing air guitar for this pitch.

    A raucous and rebellious track with huge chorus vocals could work nicely. Simple but powerful lyrics are the order of the day for this one! Lyric themes about being triumphant, winning, success, moving forward, getting it done could all work well for this pitch. No second place!!!

    Quoting The Source: “We need something very anthemic with powerful lyrics. This could be a helpful placement for an artist looking for exposure.”

    Avoiding specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics is practically a given for pitches like this. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a very broad and general guide for the range of tempos, textures, and overall emotional vibe and spirit. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee is up to $5,000, depending on the ultimate use. We’ve been told it could go somewhat higher (possibly as high as $ 12,500 in upfront sync fees, based on how long the commercial runs, etc.). This is a Direct-to-Ad-Agency pitch. You’ll keep 100% ownership of the Copyright and Master Recording, but you won’t be able to license your song for any other Commercials for the duration of the term of 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. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD.

    SURF ROCK ARTISTS and/or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a boundary-pushing Los Angeles-based Indie Record Label that’s searching for unique acts to add to its roster. Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be played on the same playlist as artists like The Strokes, Man or Astro-Man, Hawaii Samurai, etc., etc., etc. Listen to the references to get in the general wheelhouse of what this label is looking for:

    “Surf Terror” by Man or Astro-Man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezZXLQTQw3U

    TAXI Tip: If you’ve got some instrumental Surf Rock songs, you can submit those as well, but we think they’re probably looking for acts that have mostly songs with vocals.

    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!

    “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB-5XG-DbAA

    NOTE: They’re not just looking for typical “strummy” Singer/Songwriter artists. They’re looking for artists who are a bit more evolved, with a fresh take on the Singer/Songwriter genre, and could cross over to today’s Top 40 market.

    Please submit contemporary sounding Songs that have catchy melodies, fresh lyrics, and a chorus that sounds like it could kick the butts of the referenced artists.

Your overall production (even if it’s relatively stripped down and simple) should be competitive for this pitch. Please be sure your bio includes any highlights like, (but not limited to), touring experience, fanbase, or impressive sales or streaming figures you may have.

    CONTEMPORARY POP SINGER/SONGWRITER-Style ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Music Publisher that’s pitching to Major and Indie Labels. Please send well-crafted Songs that would appeal to the fans of artists like, (but not limited to):

    “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UQzJfsT2eo

    “Home” by Gabrielle Aplin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPNgq4ZRxKg

    “Another Love” By Tom Odell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwpMEbgC7DA

    Please submit contemporary sounding Singer/Songwriter Songs with super catchy melodies, memorable hooks, and a radio-friendly chorus. This Publisher is open to hearing acoustic, guitar/vocal or piano/vocal demos, if the songs are great! Your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. A small, subtle ensemble/band behind the singer could also work as well. If you think your sound is the next generation of Singer/Songwriters, and not the same old, same old, then this publisher would love to hear you!

    The specific deal points will be negotiated on an Artist-by-Artist basis directly with the Publisher. If you’ve got any CD or download sales, streaming success, a big fan base and touring experience, please make mention of those in your bio! If you’re an amazing artist with killer songs, but you don’t have a fan base yet, they’ll still be interested! Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics, bio, and photo. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Time permitting; somebody from the Publishing Company may screen some or all of the submissions. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, August 13th, 2017. TAXI #Y170813CP
