    MOODY, ELECTRONIC SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by an Indie Record Label that's currently looking for talented new artists to sign and pitch to Film and TV opportunities. Check out these songs the label gave us as references:

    “I'll Come Too” by James Blake

    "99" by Elliot Moss

    Give them Songs with a haunting, moody vocal performance steeped in a cool-sounding reverb. Your production should have ambient and atmospheric Electronic instrumentation, and some cool ear candy. You’d be wise to steer clear of anything that sounds too mainstream or commercial. Check out the reference Songs - this isn't a Top-40 kind of pitch!

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

    Ultimately, the deal will be negotiated between you and the Record Label. Please do not submit songs that are already in other catalogs or signed to any publishing companies, as you could potentially be offered an Exclusive deal. 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.  Submitting more than one song to this Listing is a good idea, as it can be a great way to showcase different aspects of your sound. 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 Monday, February 25th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190225ME

    CONTEMPORARY DEEP HOUSE SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for several $200, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in a very popular TV Series. They’re on a mission to find quite a few Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    “One Kiss” by Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa

    “I Made U Do” by Melih Aydogan Ft. Ria

    Please send infectious House Songs with a modern, polished sound and slick production values. Your instrumentals should have solid grooves, hooky melodies, and current-sounding Electronic instrumentation. Your strong, confident vocal performance should fit right in with the references above and other acts like them.

    TAXI Tip: Your song can be largely instrumental-based, as long as it has a catchy vocal hook that weaves in and out.  Please be sure your overall production sounds contemporary and has the latest and most up-to-date synth sounds and beats.

    NOTE: Your Song must have the dance-driven energy that you find in the referenced tracks!

    Lyric themes can vary but should be consistent with the genre. Universal lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are preferred (but not absolutely necessary), as they are easier to pitch and place. 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.

    The estimated license fee for this placement is $200, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, 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. 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 by a TAXI screener handpicked by the publisher, who will be judging based on his "gut", and who will be writing short yes/no critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, February 27th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190227DH

    TAXI Tip:  Please be sure your Instrumental has some variety in dynamics and some forward momentum. Whether it's a result of adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation or an energy build, these changes will help keep the spots from dragging and will give the editor musical moments to highlight.

    Your submissions should be at least 1 minute long (give or take). Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings only, please! Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    Fees will be discussed at a later date, as no budget information was given. 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. 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. Somebody from the Production House team is slated to screen submissions for this.

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

    Please submit well-crafted Instrumentals that sound like genuine Electro Swing tracks. It's all about that engaging beat and groove!  While we can’t guarantee this would be the winning combination, if we were composing an Instrumental for this request, we’d start with a four-on-the-floor dance beat playing under some authentic-sounding Swing Jazz instrumentation. Add in some contemporary electronic elements as the cherry on top! Voila! You can thank us later ;)

    All submissions should be about two to four minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings were not specifically requested, but are always a good idea when pitching to a library. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs 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.

    TAXI TIP: If you’re using a virtual instrument plugin(s), please be sure it sounds like the real thing. Anything that sounds stiff, low-quality, or obviously MIDI-driven and quantized won’t work well for this request. Give it some "human touch."

    HARD-HITTING, PERCUSSION-DRIVEN INSTRUMENTALS with some Urban Flavor are needed by hard-working Music Library with a long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows! This company has just started asking for music from TAXI’s members. It’s very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog, so this is an awesome opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build a relationship with this company!

    They want Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

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

    “Black Skinhead” by Kanye West

    “Lemon (Instrumental)” by N.E.R.D & Rihanna

    “Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani

    Although some of the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only.

    Please submit impactful, well-produced Instrumentals that are primarily driven by percussive instrumentation such as (but not limited to) Stomps, Kick, Claps, Slaps, Snaps, Taps, and Bangs. Your production should be rhythmically engaging from beginning to end and have a distinct Urban flavor. Feel free to get inventive and creative with the instruments and sounds you use!

    ORIGINAL IRISH and CELTIC INSTRUMENTALS and/or CUES are needed by a hot U.K.-based Music Library that’s been signing a lot of TAXI members to keep up with growth caused by increasing demand. They’re eager to find Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    "Coalminer's Set" by The O'Neill Brothers Group

    “The Farmer's Frolic” by Gaelic Storm

    Please submit well-crafted Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues that are quick to establish location, like something you’d hear in a documentary or a travel show. In other words, as soon as the music plays, you're transported to Ireland. They’re open to hearing all sorts of Irish music: from Traditional Celtic Folk Instrumentals to more Contemporary Irish styles.

    Your instrumentation can include pipes, bodhran, fiddles, and whistles, etc. – the more realistic-sounding, the better. If you’re using samples or Virtual Instruments to create your Cues, please be careful to avoid anything that sounds synthetic and/or obviously MIDI-driven. Overdubbing a real instrument on top of your samples could be a great way to make your material sound more authentic!

    NOTE: They are happy to hear full-length Instrumentals as well as shorter Cue-style instrumentals. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    YOUTHFUL, CONTEMPORARY POP SONGS with some URBAN influence and Male Vocals are needed by a Major Label Producer for a young, newly signed artist who’s currently working on his debut album. This Producer is looking for radio-worthy, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of artists like (but not limited to) Bazzi, HRVY, Alex Aiono, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references he gave us to get a good feel for the style and vibe he needs:

    “Beautiful” by Bazzi ft. Camila Cabello

    “Personal” by HRVY

    “Work the Middle” by Alex Aiono

    Please submit chart-ready songs that have a youthful vibe. Modern production, a contemporary Pop song structure, and some Urban flavor are all required if you want to get forwarded for this pitch. Your song should have a ton of mainstream appeal, with rhythmic verses and big, catchy hooks. Seal the deal by delivering a polished, well-performed Pop vocal to get this producer excited about pitching your song to this artist!

    NOTE: Please avoid sending any songs with drug or alcohol references or anything that's sexually explicit for this request. Although it still needs to be cool enough for a teenage pop star to sing (they don't want bubblegum Pop), your lyrical content should be on the younger side of the Pop spectrum.

    There’s a possibility that you could enter into a co-write situation with this Producer, which is very typical in the industry today. Producers often incorporate their writing chops into their productions. Again, this is very much in the norm nowadays. This could be a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor and potentially become part of this artist’s team!

    TAXI Tip: This producer told us he's happy to listen to and consider Stripped-Down Demos if the songs are super strong. FULL productions are preferred, though.

    Your recording quality needs to be clean, 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. Time permitting, the Producer himself may screen these submissions!  All submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Sunday, February 17th, 2019.  TAXI #Y190217YP

    "4EVER " by
    Clairo

    “Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales" by Car Seat Headrest

    Please submit well-crafted, Indie Dream Pop Songs that have a contemporary sound and vibe. 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 sound and approach could put you in the sweet spot for the request.

    TAXI Tip: They’re definitely not looking for slick, glossy recordings or production; however, dated and "poorly" produced, demo-quality endeavors won’t work either! Give them something that’s lo-fi and cool!

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

    Ultimately, the deal will be negotiated between you and the Record Label. Please do not submit songs that are already in any other catalogs or signed to any other publishing companies, as you could potentially be offered an Exclusive deal. 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. Submitting more than one song to this Listing is a good idea, as it can be a great way to showcase different aspects of your sound.

They’ll be looking for something fresh and new that doesn’t sound just like the referenced artists, but would still be appreciated by the same fans.

    TAXI Tip: Having a bit of a Classic Rock vibe could gain you some extra points for this request! Don't send music that's totally Classic Rock... that's not what they're looking for!

    It is recommended that you submit THREE Songs per submission, so they can see if you’ve got depth and range in your material.

    Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your composition well. You’d be wise to highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have. If you’re a new artist or band and don’t yet have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

Please listen to the following references our client gave us to get in the general stylistic ballpark of what could work well for this request:

    “Natural” by Imagine Dragons

    “Pressure” by MUSE

    “Frontier City” by Kings Of Leon

    Please submit well-crafted Songs with modern-sounding production that have a cool stylistic blend of Electronic and Rock elements. Please be sure your Songs sound current and polished, similar to the vibe of the artists mentioned above. Attention-grabbing vocals, with a solid, confident, and delivery should work best if for this request.

    Lyric Tip: Although they are open to hearing all sorts of different lyrical content, ideally they would love to hear songs that are focused around one of the following themes: Determination / Perseverance / Winning / Overcoming Challenges / Love / Friendship / Heartache / Unity / Time / Memories / Beginnings / Goals / Dreams / Motivation / Support and Encouragement. Positive stuff!

Your submissions should have gritty, rockin' vocal performances, solid melodies, and a compelling chorus. You can incorporate some minimal electronic elements, but your song should be primarily driven by traditional Rock instrumentation.

    KNOW THE DIFFERENCE! This client is not looking for old songs from 1974. Yes, a lot of the rock bands referenced above have a throwback sound reminiscent of the classic Rock eras. However, they're looking for the newer, fresher, more modern version of that sound! Please make sure you're clear about the difference before submitting.

    Lyric Tip: Although they are open to hearing a variety of lyrical content, they would love to hear songs that are focused around one of the following themes:
    Determination / Perseverance / Winning / Love / Friendship / Heartache / Beginnings / Goals / Dreams / Motivation / Support and Encouragement. They're mostly interested in positive themes, although heartache wouldn't fall under that category ;-)

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

    ORIGINAL DISCO SONGS – RECORDED IN THE 1980s or before – 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 references or anything that would have been on a playlist with those acts, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Dance Dance” by Chic

    “Love Hangover” by Diana Ross

    "Car Wash" by Rose Royce

    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 in the 1980s or before; 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.
