    ADULT CONTEMPORARY/POP CROSSOVER BALLADS with Female Vocals are needed by a very successful Producer who’s working with a Multi, Multi, Multi, Multi- (you get the idea) -Platinum, Award-Winning SUPERSTAR. They’re looking for emotionally-driven A/C Ballads that are Down-to-Mid-Tempo and could be heard on a playlist with these references the client gave us:

    “Someone Like You” by Adele: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLQl3WQQoQ0

    “Stay” by Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JF8BRvqGCNs

    “If I Were A Boy” by Beyoncé: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWpsOqh8q0M

    Please submit well-structured Songs that sound like they could be a mega-hit for this MEGA-ARTIST, and the crown jewel song for a blockbuster film and soundtrack. Your songs should have a great structure, combined with huge, memorable melodies, incredibly solid hooks, and a powerful chorus that’s just dripping with emotion. You can submit fully produced songs, demos, and even stripped-down piano/vocal or guitar/vocal demos. No matter which you submit, please make sure your vocal performance and overall recording are good enough to get this artist and producer excited about cutting your song.

    Quoting the Source – “Looking for songs that have an AC/Pop crossover style, but aren’t not too mature or dated sounding from a lyrical perspective. If the right song is found, it will be cut by a major superstar and pitched for a really big feature film.”

    TAXI Tip: This producer generally gets 50% of the Publisher’s share (he often co-writes, and builds a completely new recording from scratch, so he earns his share). He’s well-known for plugging in vocals from giant artists, then licensing the songs he produces for $30,000 - $50,000 a pop! He typically splits the sync fee with the songwriter. Individual deals can vary based on the ultimate placement, but this guy’s credentials and track record are impeccable!

    Lyric Tip: Relationship songs generally do well for pitches like this. General lyrics that don’t include specific story lines are the way to go.

    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 as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a screener hand-picked by the producer - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Saturday, December 16th, 2017. TAXI #Y171216AB

Your submissions should have really strong musicianship from start to finish, with instrumentation that’s typically found in the Americana genre. Your Songs can be as simple as a well-played acoustic guitar with a really compelling, intimate vocal, or it can have a fuller ensemble.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something that sounds in line with what you’d normally here in the Americana genre. Lyrics that don’t have specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely do best. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and overall tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    They offer 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.

    NEW LISTING -- CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY/POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for (up-to) $7,500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in a new TV Show on Major Broadcast Network. They’re searching for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that could be found on the same playlist as these references they gave us below (but not limited to):

    “What Ifs” by Kane Brown ft. Lauren Alaina: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fM8V1XOI-14

    “Meant to Be” by Bebe Rexha ft. Florida Georgia Line: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDo0H8Fm7d0

    “Sway” by Danielle Bradbery: ` https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qr1Fpkkad2c

    They are not looking for songs that sound just like those references. Just ask yourself, “Would my song fit on a radio station playlist with those references?”

    NOTE: When we researched why the payment is $7,500 (which we felt was high), this is the answer we got back!

    “It's a music show, not really a competition, but it's in the competition ‘lane,’ so that's why the rates are higher. Typically the competition shows will license well-known music, but in this case they want originals. Looks like the music will be played significantly in the show. They want to showcase songwriters/producers who aren't well known. They’re open to hearing songs that may be a little bit rough around the edges, but still show great potential!”

    NOTE: This is an incredible opportunity to get your music featured (not background) for at least two-minutes on a major broadcast network, and heard by millions of viewers. It’s very rare that you’ll hear us say this, but the exposure from this show could very well be career-changing. At the very least, it could be a great highlight to add to your bio, press kit, or social media! If selected for this show, your music would be featured (as in front and center, not background) during the show, AND they will post links to your social media. There may even be a possible Title feature to showcase your Song during the show as well!

    Please submit Contemporary Country/Pop Songs that would sound at home on today’s Country radio stations and/or charts. Your submissions should ideally be polished sounding. That said, as we mentioned above, a great song that’s a little rough around the “production edges” could still be considered. No raw demos, please. In any case, having a solid vocal performance with tons of personality and attitude could help get them excited about using your song.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be consistent with what you’d typically hear in the Country/Pop genre. 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 placement is (up to) $7,500, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights (no publishing splits), plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties (assuming the show gets picked up). You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Thursday, December 21st, 2017. TAXI #U171221CP

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY ARTISTS or BANDS IN VIRTUALLY ALL COMMERCIALLY VIABLE GENRES (on the list below) with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s looking for fresh, new talent to sign to their roster.

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

    Whichever genre or sub genre of Country you’re pitching, the music should sound current and contemporary, with genre-appropriate sounding instrumentation and production. Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs will typically do the best job of impressing an A&R person, but, if you’ve got an awesome, career-making ballad, feel free to take the shot.

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

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

    SCREENERS WILL BE GIVING MINIMAL FEEDBACK ON THIS LISTING BECAUSE OF ITS UNUSUAL NATURE. PLEASE DON’T BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOUR FEEDBACK SIMPLY SAYS SOMETHING LIKE, “This is interesting, but it doesn’t really have much commercial appeal,” or “I like the vocal performance, but the songwriting needs to be a couple notches higher to get a forward for this pitch.”

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

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

    You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fan base, or impressive sales or streaming figures in your bio. If you’re a new artist or band, and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit THREE Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

You’d be wise to have a solid and super confident vocal performance to get the Publisher and Artist excited about cutting your song.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be consistent with what you’d typically hear in the Country Pop genre.

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.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE, 1960’s FOLK SONGS 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 below, or any other popular acts from that era, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “For What It's Worth” by Buffalo Springfield: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIoKr9VDg3A&feature=youtu.be

    “Oh Susanna” by James Taylor and Johnny Cash: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO9QX_OpApk

    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 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 as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only.

    Hard to Classify / Specialty / Novelty

    CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS or BANDS IN THE COMMERCIALLY VIABLE GENRES (on the list below) with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s looking for fresh, new talent to sign to their roster.

    They’re open to virtually any contemporary genres/styles from Pop, Acoustic Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Americana, Rock, Indie Pop, Folk, Indie Folk, etc., etc.

    Note: We’re going to run separate Listings for this Label in some Urban genres and Jazz in the next few days. We needed to break them into “macro categories” so we can get the right screeners listening to the right the right music!

    Whatever you’re pitching, the music should sound current and contemporary, with genre-appropriate sounding instrumentation and production. Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs will typically do the best job of impressing an A&R person, but, if you’ve got an awesome, career-making ballad, feel free to take the shot.

    NOTE: They didn’t give us parameters, other than asking us to find them “new, original, and talented artists regardless of the genre, style, or sound.” Please be sure to submit your most competitive material for this pitch! Once again, even though this is pretty wide open, please send material that’s commercially viable within its genre. You may have the world’s best “Rust Belt Jazz/Rock/Pop,” but the chances of a label being able to find a market for it are slim-to-none.

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

    SCREENERS WILL BE GIVING MINIMAL FEEDBACK ON THIS LISTING BECAUSE OF ITS UNUSUAL NATURE. PLEASE DON’T BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOUR FEEDBACK SIMPLY SAYS SOMETHING LIKE, “This is interesting, but it doesn’t really have much commercial appeal,” or “I like the vocal performance, but the songwriting needs to be a couple notches higher to get a forward for this pitch.”

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

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

    You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fan base, or impressive sales or streaming figures in your bio. If you’re a new artist or band, and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit THREE Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Tuesday, December 19th, 2017. TAXI #Y171219BA

    ORIGINAL, FOREIGN LANGUAGE RECORDINGS of SONGS in ANY GENRE and STYLE with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-known Indie Label. They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the broad stylistic range of the references below:

    NOTE: You Songs can be in languages as wide-ranging as (but not limited to): Spanish, Arabic, French, Hebrew, Italian, Mandarin, Swahili, Russian, Greek… you name it, within reason! We don’t think really obscure languages will be all that appealing to them.

    “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi ft.Daddy Yankee: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJQP7kiw5Fk

    “Ey Joonam” by Sami Beigi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaImFO_DgAM

    “Pana” by Tekno: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YhAFBOSk1U

    TAXI TIP: They’re open to hearing Songs in popular, and commercially viable genres like Pop, Rock, EDM, Indie-Rock, Hip-Hop, Electronic, Reggae, Punk, and even Country! Just be sure your vocals are not in English for this pitch!

    Please submit well-crafted Songs that capture the true spirit of the Country /Region/ Continent you choose. Your production and ensemble size can vary from something small, to a larger, fuller production. Please be sure your vocal performance is solid from start to finish, and is authentic sounding to the region your music comes from or the style of music you choose to submit.

    Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for feel, texture, tone, and overall vibe.

    The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Label. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Saturday, December 23rd, 2017. TAXI #Y171223FL

    CONTEMPORARY ALT-ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Major Production Music Library with a multi-decade long history of top-notch placements in TV shows, Commercials, and Feature films.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a Dispatch Listing (TAXI #D171105AR), but the company didn’t get enough material and asked us to put it out to full membership to see if we could find them more great material. If you submitted to TAXI # #D171105AR, please submit different material this time around! They’re still eagerly searching for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fit well on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to) X-Ambassadors, Rag’n’Bone Man, Imagine Dragons, etc., etc. Please listen to the following references our client gave us to get an idea of what can work for this pitch:

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

    “Jungle” by X-Ambassadors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqXW57WM9TA

    “Human” by Rag’n’Bone Man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3wKzyIN1yk

    Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only. Please send them well-crafted Alt-Rock Instrumental Cues that have an edgy sound and vibe, with solid musicianship and catchy melodic lines. Having a hard-hitting beat that gives off a cool and “bad ass” feel will help your track stand out for this pitch. Your Cues should stick to a central motif from beginning to end, while adding and subtracting layers of additional instrumentation as your Cue progresses to keep it from sounding too repetitive or linear. Please avoid sending in anything that sounds stiff, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven.

    All submissions should be about 2:00 in length (give or take), with non-faded, buttoned endings. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal, so please be sure the Instrumentals you pitch for this listing are NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only.

    FUN, EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed for several $500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placements in a new Reality TV Series. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up Tempo Instrumentals that could work well for Reality TV Shows in the general stylistic wheelhouse of these examples:

    Under Construction Episode 4 (2:01 - 2:25): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Sgpy0ob7x4&t=123s

    Treehouse Masters (2:36 - 3:09): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jR2YsqmDKww

    Zombie House Flipping (17:45 - 17:59): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h65MChKpjQM

    Send them emotionally upbeat Instrumental Cues that deliver a positive, fun, vibe and sound like what you’d typically hear in a home fixing show. Structure your Cue around a central melodic theme while adding and subtracting instrumentation as it progresses to give it some dynamics and forward momentum. Please avoid anything that sounds busy or overly frenetic, as it could distract from a scene’s dialogue. They need a bunch of Cues in this style, so if you’ve got them, don’t be shy about submitting for this!

    TAXI Tip: We would recommend using mostly organic sounding instrumentation. Some dashes of electronic instrumentation could work, but the references seem to indicate that acoustic/live instrumentation would be preferred.

    All submissions should be at about 1:30 long (give or take), with non-faded, buttoned endings. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (Great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is (up-to) $500, depending on the ultimate placement. 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. You must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Wednesday, December 20th, 2017. TAXI #Y171220FE

    NEW LISTING -- TOP 40 STYLE POP INSTRUMENTALS are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for (up-to) $7,500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in a new TV Show on Major Broadcast Network. They’re looking for fresh, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Tracks (not cues!) that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

    “What Lovers Do” by Maroon 5 feat. SZA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NmGGGlHpxQ

    “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato: ` https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MsvER1dpjM

    “New Rules” by Dua Lipa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2qgadSvNyU

    Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumental Tracks ONLY for this pitch.

    They are not looking for Tracks that sound just like those references. Ask yourself, “Could my Instrumental Track be used as the basis for a song that would fit on a radio station playlist with those references?”

    NOTE: When we researched why the payment is $7,500 (which we felt was high), this is the answer we got back!

    “It's a music show, not really a competition, but it's in the competition ‘lane,’ so that's why the rates are higher. Typically the competition shows will license well-known music, but in this case they want originals. Looks like the music will be played significantly in the show. They want to showcase songwriters/producers who aren't well known.”

    NOTE: They will presumably be using the Instrumental tracks they choose as the foundation for people on the show to add topline. They’re being a little hush-hush about that, so we’re giving an educated guess.

    This is an incredible opportunity to get your music featured (not background) for at least two-minutes on a major broadcast network, and heard by millions of viewers. It’s very rare that you’ll hear us say this, but the exposure from this show could very well be career-changing. At the very least, it could be a great highlight to add to your bio, press kit, or social media! If selected for this show, your music would be featured (as in front and center, not background) during the show, AND they will post links to your social media. There may even be a possible Title feature to showcase your music during the show as well!

    Please submit fresh, well-crafted Instrumental Tracks that are rhythmically and melodically engaging with a contemporary sound and vibe you’d hear from the references and other acts in the same ballpark. Your production should be current sounding (not dated, please) and have a slick, polished, Top 40 sound. The bar will be high for this request, so please be sure your Instrumentals are top-notch and clearly showcase your awesome production skills!

    NOTE: If selected, your music would be featured during the show and would play for at least two-minutes, AND they would post links to your social media. There may even be a possible Title Feature to showcase your Instrumental during the show as well!

    TAXI TIP: They’re looking for great original material from undiscovered music producers, so Instrumental Tracks that sound more like records and less like music library tracks will probably do best!

    All submissions should be full-length. Do NOT copy the referenced acts 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 (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is (up to) $7,500, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights (no publishing splits), plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties (assuming the show gets picked up). 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.

    Jazz

    Return to List of Categories

    ARTISTS and BANDS IN ALL COMMERCIALLY VIABLE GENRES and SUB-GENRES of CONTEMPORARY JAZZ with Male, Female, Duet Vocals, or Instrumentals are needed by the President of a hard-working Independent Record Label that’s looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its eclectic roster.

    They’re open to virtually any commercially viable Jazz genres/styles including, but not limited to: Smooth Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Avant-Garde, Fusion, Latin Jazz, Big Band, Mainstream, Hard Bop, Cool Jazz, Ragtime, etc., etc., etc.

    We know a couple of those styles wouldn’t necessarily be considered contemporary. In those cases, think about what a modern interpretation on that style would sound like, for instance; a modern version of Big Band or Ragtime.

    Whatever you decide to pitch, it should sound current, with appropriate sounding instrumentation and production that fits the genre. All Tempos will be considered for this request.

    NOTE: They didn’t give us parameters or specific references, other than asking us to find them “new, original, and talented artists within the range of commercially viable genres in today’s Jazz market.” Please submit your most competitive material for this pitch! Once again, even though this is pretty wide open, please send material that’s commercially viable.

    Your song craft and performance need to jump out of the speakers for this pitch. Because of the broad nature of this request, our Screeners will be given this simple mandate: “If you hear something that you’d personally walk into the president of a successful record label, slap it on his or her desk and say, ‘I think this is your next big act (or big hit),’ then forward it to this label.”

    SCREENERS WILL BE GIVING MINIMAL FEEDBACK ON THIS LISTING BECAUSE OF ITS UNUSUAL NATURE. PLEASE DON’T BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOUR FEEDBACK SIMPLY SAYS SOMETHING LIKE, “This is interesting, but it doesn’t really have much commercial appeal,” or “I like the overall performance and musicianship, but the songwriting needs to be a couple notches higher to get a forward for this pitch.”

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

    You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fan base, and impressive sales or streaming figures in your bio. If you’re a new artist or band, and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit THREE Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE, 1950’s CROONER-Style SONGS with Male 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 reference below, or any other popular acts from that era, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “Just One Of Those Things” by Frank Sinatra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_dKLyqN0Ss

    “Magic Moments” by Perry Como: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ND3oghPL5M

    “Just A Gigolo /I Ain't Got Nobody” by Louis Prima: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kkrb4h4weW4

    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 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!

    CONTEMPORARY BEDROOM POP, (aka Lo-Fi POP) ARTISTS/BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the V.P. of A&R at a prominent Major/Indie Record Label. They’re actively searching for fresh, super cool new artists that would appeal to fans of acts like these references:

    “I Know, I Know, I Know” by Tegan and Sara: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCMkY2ZjwPE

    “Serve This Royalty” by Cody ChesnuTT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keQuLhwxXdo

    “Home” by Lou Barlow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QcF9AqcndM

    “Up the Wolves” by The Mountain Goats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PO4r9m_6Xk

    Please submit Songs that sound like they were recorded in a bedroom (hence the name Bedroom Pop)… lo-fi to be sure, and pretty Indie sounding is the way to go on this pitch. Because this is for a record label, they’re going to be looking for material that sounds catchy, but still has sort of a IDGAF attitude (ask your kid), or is at least a little raggedy around the edges. They’re definitely not looking for slick, glossy recordings or production, but you’ve got to appeal to the “kids’ who are too cool for school.

    Note: Please submit THREE songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

    Please be sure to include any touring, fan base, or sales, streaming, or impressive social media figures you have in your bio. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have a great sound and awesome songs, they’d still like to hear you! All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Sunday, December 17th, 2017. TAXI #Y171217BP

    CONTEMPORARY, HIGH-ENERGY, URBAN SONGS with a little POP influence and Male or Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for a NON-Exclusive, $7,000, Direct-to-Music Supervisor Placement in a big budget Feature Film. Send them Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that fall in the general stylistic wheelhouse of artists like (but not limited to), G-Eazy, GoldLink, Bryson Tiller, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get in the general ballpark of the sound they need:

    “Good Life” by G-Eazy & Kehlani: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG9M0aEpJGE

    “Fall in Love” by GoldLink ft. Ciscero: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZMw40wX9pM

    “Sorry Not Sorry” by Bryson Tiller: (Contains language that could be offensive to some listeners) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4MHrrIQuis

    Send them Songs that have a commercial Urban sound that leans a bit more towards the Pop-infused style of the genre.

    NOTE: The film’s director is also a big fan of funk, so adding something like a funk bass part or guitar part could be helpful, but it’s certainly not an absolute necessity.

    Overall, they just need cool, high energy Urban songs with great beats and hooks. Your Songs should have a contemporary sounding production, with a confident, well-performed vocal performance.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something in the range of what’s currently heard on the Urban charts. Lyrics that avoid mentioning brands and profanity are a good idea 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, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is (up-to) $7,000, depending on the ultimate placement. 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. You must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Sunday, December 17th, 2017. TAXI #U171217US

    POP/EDM SONGS with a sassy edge and Female Vocals are needed for an (up-to) $10,000, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placement in a National TV Commercial. Send them top-notch, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that you’d expect to hear on playlists with artists/songs like (but not limited to):

    “Work B**ch” by Britney Spears: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt8VYOfr8To

    “Problem” by Natalia Kills [Explicit Lyrics]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZrZI6OmezE

    “Bad” by David Guetta & Showtek ft.Vassy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC-GflRB0y4

    Give them fresh, well-crafted, energetic Pop Songs with some noticeable EDM influence, an unforgettable melody, killer hooks, and a super-compelling chorus. Great synth sounds, awesome builds, and a radio-worthy, Pop-style vocal performance could get work well for this TV Commercial!

    LYRIC Tip: They’d like to hear lyrics about “competition, being strong, and any other sassy themes.” Female empowerment in many of its forms is always a favorite with Ad Agencies and their clients, so lyrics about winning, strength, coming out on top, going to the distance, etc., could all potentially work! Lyrics that avoid using references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are recommended.

    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. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee will range between $5,000-$10,000, depending on the ultimate use. 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 Instrumental for any other TV 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 as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener that is hand-picked by the Ad Agency. Short critiques only.

Your production as well as vocal performance should generally be in the wheelhouse of the style, energy, and feel of the referenced artists, and other Pop Songs in that ballpark.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be positive and family-friendly (G or PG-Rated), as this show is pretty wholesome. Please avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Please, do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for feel, vibe, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

Having a confident and well-executed vocal performance could really help your chances for this pitch. Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. That said, this Producer says he’s “open to hearing stripped-down demos if the song is great and the vocal delivery helps me convince artists to cut it.”

    The deal will be negotiated between you and the Publishing Company. Please do not submit songs that are already in any other catalogs or signed to any other publishing companies. The company typically does EXCLUSIVE publishing or co-publishing deals from what we’ve observed. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form.

    TAXI TIP: You’d be wise to avoid submitting any songs that are dark, or have too much of a Trap feel. Keep them “party-ready.”

    Lyric themes should be fun, and touch on topics about (but not limited to) friends, partying, and having a good time! Lyrics that avoid using references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will be the most appealing to this library. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Also, do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you submit for this pitch aren’t already signed to another catalog or any other libraries. Sync fees will be split 50/50, the Publisher will get the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your master and composition rights. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Tuesday, December 26th, 2017. TAXI #Y171226PH

    RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS with a Sassy Edge and Female Vocals are needed for an (up-to) $10,000, Direct-to-Ad-Agency placement in a National TV Commercial. They’re looking for Fresh, Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs in the stylistic ballpark of artists/songs like (but not limited to), M.I.A, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references they gave us to get in the general ballpark of what they need for this TV Spot:

    “Bad Girls” by M.I.A: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uYs0gJD-LE

    “Beez In The Trap” by Nicki Minaj: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmZvOhHF85I

    “F**k Love” by Iggy Azalea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTqoLuyfGT0

    Although some of the above references contain profanity, please do not submit songs with explicit lyrics! Give them original Rap/Hip-Hop Songs with great hooks, and a rhythmically compelling vocal delivery that has plenty of swagger and a sassy attitude. Your production should be polished with engaging, interesting melodies and rhythms. Current sounds and hard-hitting drums should also help you get attention for this pitch!

    LYRIC Tip: They’d like to hear (NON-PROFANITY) lyrics about “competition, being strong, and any other sassy themes.” Female empowerment in many of its forms is always a favorite with Ad Agencies and their clients, so lyrics about winning, strength, coming out on top, going the distance, etc., could all potentially work! Universal 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 general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee will range between $5,000-$10,000, depending on the ultimate use. 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 Instrumental for any other TV 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 as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener that is hand-picked by the Ad Agency. Short critiques only. All Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Tuesday, December 26th, 2017. TAXI #Y171226RH

    ARTISTS and BANDS IN ALL COMMERCIALLY VIABLE GENRES and SUB-GENRES of CONTEMPORARY URBAN MUSIC with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by the President of a hard-working Independent Record Label that’s looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its eclectic roster.

    They’re open to virtually any contemporary genres/styles from Urban Pop, R&B, Soul, Neo Soul, Hip Hop, Trap, Reggae, Dance Hall, Urban A/C, Funk, etc., etc., etc.

    Whatever you decide to go with, it should sound current, with appropriate sounding instrumentation and production that fits the genre. Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs are usually more desirable, but, if you have really strong Ballads or Down-Tempo Songs, go ahead and include them!

    NOTE: They didn’t give us parameters or specific references, other than asking us to find them “new, original, and talented artists within the range of the contemporary Urban genre, style, and sound.” Please submit your most competitive material for this pitch! Once again, even though this is pretty wide open, please send material that’s commercially viable.

    Your song craft and performance need to jump out of the speakers for this pitch. Because of the broad nature of this request, our Screeners will be given this simple mandate: “If you hear something that you’d personally walk into the president of a successful record label, slap it on his or her desk and say, ‘I think this is your next big act (or big hit),’ then forward it to this label.”

    SCREENERS WILL BE GIVING MINIMAL FEEDBACK ON THIS LISTING BECAUSE OF ITS UNUSUAL NATURE. PLEASE DON’T BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOUR FEEDBACK SIMPLY SAYS SOMETHING LIKE, “This is interesting, but it doesn’t really have much commercial appeal,” or “I like the vocal performance, but the songwriting needs to be a couple notches higher to get a forward for this pitch.”

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

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

    You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fan base, and impressive sales or streaming figures in your bio. If you’re a new artist or band, and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit THREE Songs online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Wednesday, December 27th, 2017. TAXI #Y171227UG

    Rock

    CONTEMPORARY ROCK SONGS with some Pop influence and Male or Female Vocals are needed for several Non-exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placements on a Mega-Hit Reality TV Show on Major Broadcast Network. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

    “The Impression That I Get” by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIGMUAMevH0 “Take Me Out” by Franz Ferdinand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h66dI0q_9As “Sugar” by Maroon 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vw84EkHOlY

    Give them Songs that have all the appeal of the references above, with outstanding melodies, and a great hook-filled chorus that’s immediately infectious. Your song should have solid production and lean a bit more toward the Pop side of Rock, with lots of mainstream appeal. Some electronic elements can work, but you’d be wise to keep them somewhat minimal as to not take away from the Rock Vibe. Your song should have a really compelling vocal performance if you want to get this Executive Producer’s attention.

    Lyric themes can vary, but please avoid anything that's moody, dark, or depressing, as this show is pretty family-friendly. Emotionally upbeat is the way to go. Songs that could work in the context of a funny show, and are G or PG-Rated, would be your best bet! Please avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Please, do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for feel, vibe, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This is a Direct-to-the Show’s Executive Producer Pitch, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording. You’ll also get any applicable sync fees and performance royalties! No publisher splits! You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Pleas submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Friday, December 29th, 2017. TAXI #Y171229RP

    GOTH ROCK ARTISTS and/or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a really well-known Indie Record Label that’s hunting for some awesome acts to sign to their eclectic roster. Please listen to the references below to get a general idea of the sound and style of what might get this Label excited:

    “Amnesia” by Erato: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWAzRMzv3Ow

    “Nosferatu” by Haunting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsOooSvbvNA

    “Zombies” by Lacuna Coil: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvpD2rgLwls

    Please submit authentic, real deal Goth Rock Songs that are rhythmically and lyrically engaging, and have all the appeal of the references mentioned above. Your submission should have typical Rock instrumentation (but don’t be afraid to throw in a twist), and an awesomely dramatic, angst-driven vocal performance. Believability is a key factor for this opportunity, so songs that sound more like a real Goth act and less like a typical music library track with a vocal will help get this Label’s attention!

    They’re primarily interested with 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. If you’re a young artist or band, and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you! Please submit THREE original songs, with lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a 5-Star, Major Music Library with a very, very long list of killer placements in Feature Films, TV Shows, and Commercials. Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with artists and songs like:

    “A Toast and a Spirit” by Vacation Manor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCYJSrefEPI

    “Rebels” by Coopertheband: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdMrinpq5kw

    “Ice Cream” by Derrival: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOnnOwJZJ6I

    We don’t mean that your songs need to sound just like those! Just ask yourself, “Would somebody who likes those references put my song on their playlist?” If the answer is “yes,” then you should submit that song!!

    Give them rockin’ songs that sound like a true Indie Rock band, with great musicianship, and a vocal performance that has lots of Indie attitude and appeal. And of course, your songs have to be strong!

    No specific lyric themes were requested, so anything that sounds like what you’d normally hear in the Indie Rock genre could potentially work. Lyric themes and emotions can range from emotionally up-tempo to more angst-y and introspective, just as long as you don’t go super dark and depressing. Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing to music supervisors. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this listing are NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Sunday, January 14th, 2017.

Please take a listen to the following references we got from the Supervisor to get yourself in the general wheelhouse of what they need for this film:

    Please submit well-structured Songs with engaging melodies, memorable hooks, and a big, infectious chorus. You can go with a relatively simple Stripped-Down Guitar/Vocal or Piano/Vocal performance, as well as versions with a small ensemble. A compelling, emotional vocal performance is important for this pitch, so be sure that your vocal delivery generally reflects the vibe of the references above and other acts that would fall in that ballpark. The bar is high for this pitch, so be sure to pull out your best!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should stylistically in the general ballpark of what acts like the references might do. Non-specific relationship-based or introspective/self-discovery lyrics could work well for this type of pitch. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is (up-to) $5,000, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch. You'll get 100% of the sync fee, and 100% of any applicable performance royalties. Plus, you'll also keep 100% of your Publishing and Master ownership. You need to 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, and please include Lyrics.

    CONTEMPORARY, ACOUSTIC-Driven SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-list Record Producer’s Publishing Company that’s always pitching to big artists’ projects or using songs on projects he’s producing. He’s on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would appeal to fans of artists like (but not limited to) Jamie Lawson, Vance Joy, Misty Boyce, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get an idea of the style and vibe that could work for this pitch:

Instrumentation can vary for this pitch, but should be predominantly acoustic driven (Piano and/or Acoustic Guitar), and loosely in the general style of the references mentioned. A small, subtle ensemble/band behind the singer could work as well!

    Note: This Producer’s Publishing Company does not need to hear fully produced songs. They’re open to hearing simple, basic demos if they’re done well and the songs are super strong! You can also submit songs with fuller productions if you’d like. This Producer has cut TAXI member songs on past records, so pitch your best stuff if you’d like to be part of that “club.”

    ORIGINAL SONGS, SUNG in RUSSIAN, in a VARIETY OF GENRES and STYLES with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a boundary-pushing, Los Angeles-based Indie Record Label. They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could fall in a pretty wide range of styles, including, but definitely not limited to the Songs referenced below:

    “НЮША” by NYUSHA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwpDzJE4fc8

    “Держи” by Дима Билан: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_LrXZbOAWQ

    “Opera N2” by Vitas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tITWIcNeTjw

    TAXI TIP: They’re open to hearing Songs in popular, commercially viable genres like EDM, Indie-Rock, Hip-Hop, Electronic, Punk, Singer-Songwriter, Country etc., however, they would love to get some really good Russian Pop or Rock Songs in particular! Just be sure your vocals are in Russian for this pitch! You’ve got some Russian songs hanging around, don’t you? Frankly, we think they’ll be happy finding ANY genres of Russian songs ;-)

    Please submit well crafted Songs that are rhythmically and melodically compelling, and have a really catchy chorus. Your production and ensemble size can vary from something small, to a larger, fuller production. Whichever style you choose, please be sure it has genre-appropriate instrumentation, with a vocal performance that’s solid from to bottom.

    Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for feel, texture, tone, and overall vibe.

    The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Record Label. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Thursday, December 28th, 2017. TAXI #Y171228RS

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS of LATIN SONGS with Male or Female Vocals in ANY SUB-GENRES Recorded in 1995 or Earlier are needed by an A-List Film and TV Music Publisher.

    We’re not providing any references for this request, as they want to keep this pretty open. They’re open to anything ranging from Salsa, Mariachi, Banda, Bossa Nova, Bolero, Plena, Samba, Tango, Plena, Zouk, Bachata, etc., etc., etc.

    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 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 as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Thursday, January 4th, 2018. TAXI #Y180104VL
