    ADULT CONTEMPORARY/POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Brand New, Non-Exclusive Music Library just started by the CEO of another successful company. This company has asked TAXI to find them hundreds (probably thousands) of Instrumentals, Cues, and Songs over the next few months. It’s very unlikely that you’ve got music in this new catalog, so this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new catalog that will probably get a ton of placements!

    “Say You Won't Let Go” by James Arthur: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yW7w8F2TVA

    “Love So Soft” by Kelly Clarkson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zy6vBxqlapw

    “Perfect Duet” by Ed Sheeran ft. Beyoncé: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=817P8W8-mGE

    Please submit, current-sounding, commercially appealing songs with inviting melodies, infectious beats, and a big, radio-ready chorus. Your vocal performance should be strong and really bring it home. Instrumentation can be as a simple as an acoustic or electric guitar/vocal or piano/vocal, or you can go bigger and land somewhere in the middle lane, as long as your song is well-crafted and your production sounds modern and not dated.

    Your lyrics can be along the lines of what you’d typically hear in this genre, but should ideally avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for feel, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Company offers a NON-Exclusive 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch. You’ll maintain full ownership of the original Copyright and Master Recording. Please send 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 Thursday, January 25th, 2018. TAXI #S180125AP

This company has asked TAXI to find them hundreds (probably thousands) of Instrumentals, Cues, and Songs over the next few months.

    Although these references have vocals, this pitch is looking for Instrumentals (with Group Vocal Chants) only. Do NOT pitch songs with full lyrics, please.

    Please submit rhythmically and melodically engaging EDM Instrumental Cues with tons on fist-pumping energy that would get a stadium crowd on its feet. Your Cues should have awesome builds and drops, melodic hooks, and ear candy, with catchy Vocal Chants. Vocal parts like: “whoas,” “yeahs,” “heys,” “woo-hoos,” etc. will all work for this pitch, but don’t limit yourself to just those vocal chant ideas, those are just some suggestions! You’d be wise to give them phrases that will work well in the context of sports. Keep them simple, short and unforgettable!

    TAXI TIP: The key to this pitch is for your submission to have a lot of energy and excitement. If you can picture hearing your Instrumental Cue playing in sports arenas or in any sports-related highlight reel, then you could be in the stylistic ballpark – pun intended!

    All submissions should be about 2:00 in length (give or take), with Non-Faded 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.)

    Quoting Our Source: “He’s looking for songs with fresh, new melody ideas, so it's important that the melody of your tracks are super strong and really stand out. He’ll very likely make a substantial contribution to the production of the song, so you can submit demos for this, as long as the song is really, really strong.”

    This Producer is happy to listen to stripped-down, Guitar/Vocal or Piano/Vocal demos, if they’re done well and the songs are super strong! Yeah, we know we said that already, but it’s worth repeating ;-) Your recording quality should still be clean, clear, and good enough to represent your song well.

This company has asked TAXI to find them hundreds (probably thousands) of Instrumentals, Cues, and Songs over the next few months.

    Lyrics can vary, but should generally reflect the themes you’d typically hear in Blues songs. Universal lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will be best for this pitch, but they’re not an absolute requirement. 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.

    Send them emotionally upbeat, high-energy Instrumental Cues that deliver a positive, fun vibe, and sound like something that would work well in the context of an exciting kids’ competition game show. Your Cues can be a little bit crazy or zany, but don’t go too far. Come in fast and strong, and structure your Cue around a central melodic theme while adding and subtracting instrumentation as it progresses to give it dynamics and lots of forward momentum. 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: Please DO NOT use any clock or ticking sounds/EFX to indicate any sort of countdown.

    All submissions should be 30 to 60 seconds long (give or take), with non-faded, Stinger endings. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form.

    ACOUSTIC-Driven (Guitar, Ukulele, Piano) SINGER/SONGWRITER INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Brand New, Non-Exclusive Music Library being started by the CEO of another successful company. This company has asked TAXI to find them hundreds (probably thousands) of Instrumentals, Cues, and Songs over the next few months.

Your Instrumentals can range from very simple tracks with just a Guitar, Ukulele, Piano, etc., (maybe with some handclaps, whistling, etc.); to small acoustic-based ensembles; and all the way up to more fully-produced tracks with a full band, as long as it’s acoustic instrument-driven at its core. Build your Cue around a central melodic idea and keep it interesting by adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as it progresses. Avoid using any instruments that sound stiff or MIDI-driven, as well as anything that could distract from dialog in a scene.

    All submissions should be about 2:00 in length (give or take), with Non-Faded 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.)

    Although the references above have vocals, this pitch is for instrumentals only! Please send them hard-driving, Up-Tempo Action Metal Instrumental Cues that are at least Two-Minutes long with a short (or no) intro, propulsive drums, hooky, repetitive, guitar riffs, and a bass part with the kind of attack that hits you in the chest. Stick with one central musical idea from beginning to end, while creating a sense of forward momentum by adding and subtracting instruments as your Cue progresses. Add dynamics by building it up, tearing it back down, building it back up again, and the going for the big finish! Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings are strongly recommended.

    Send them great sounding, well-crafted Cues that are exciting enough that they would work well for Sports TV, Extreme Sports videos and high-energy Chase Scenes in big feature films.

    Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or their music 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).

    IRISH and CELTIC INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Brand New, Non-Exclusive Music Library recently started by the CEO of another successful company. This company has asked TAXI to find them hundreds (probably thousands) of Instrumentals, Cues, and Songs over the next few months. It’s very unlikely that you’ve got music in this new catalog, so this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new catalog that will probably get a ton of placements!

    “Paddy's Leather Breeches” by Global Journey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfgULjiH8YM

    “The Farmer's Frolic” by Gaelic Storm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJMSfmXi26g

    “Up Among the Heather” by The Irish Rovers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEEpI0fwwrA

    Although some of the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only! Give them Instrumentals in All Tempos that are rhythmically and melodically engaging, with a distinct Irish/Celtic sound and style. They’re open to hearing anything from Traditional Irish music to Celtic Folk Instrumentals, to Contemporary versions of anything that sounds authentic and instantly transports the listener to the Irish countryside, villages, or even shopping areas featured in modern day travel shows. If you’re using samples or Virtual Instruments to create your Cues, please be careful to avoid anything that sounds obviously MIDI-driven. Over-dubbing a live instrument or two would be a nice touch! Adding authentic sounds for pitches like this can be the thing that makes your music stand out!

    TAXI Tip: Adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses will keep it from sounding too repetitive or linear. Please avoid anything that’s so busy or frenetic that it could distract from a scene’s dialogue.

    All submissions should be about 2:00 in length (give or take), with Non-Faded 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. Genre-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine.)

    CONTEMPORARY, TOP 40-Style POP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a quickly expanding NON-Exclusive Music Library that already has a very long track record of placements. They’re looking for slick, Mid-to-Up Tempo Instrumental Cues that would sound at home on a playlist with music like (but not limited to) these references they gave us:

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a Dispatch Listing (TAXI #D171231PI), but the company didn’t get enough material and asked us to run this request to our full membership list to see if we could find them more great material. If you submitted to TAXI #D171231PI, please submit different material this time around!

    “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru0K8uYEZWw

    “Don't Wanna Know” by Maroon 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANS9sSJA9Yc

    "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPf0YbXqDm0

    “I Feel It Coming” by The Weeknd: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFLhGq0060w

    Although the references have vocals, this pitch is for Instrumentals only. Please submit fresh, current-sounding Instrumental Cues that have top-notch production. Your Instrumental Cues should sound “entirely original, as [they] do NOT want any parodies or sound-alikes of the references or other songs in that ballpark.” Be sure your Cues have current-sounding instrumentation and engaging melodies that can stand on their own without becoming monotonous. Adding and subtracting additional instrumentation/elements as your Cue progresses will help give it forward momentum and dynamics.

    TAXI Tip: They do NOT want “any polysynth or synth lead sounds to TAKE THE PLACE of a vocal. If those are included, music editors may say it sounds ‘too synthy,’ and NOT use them at all.”

    Quoting the Music Library: “Pay attention to the sounds. If you do not have the right sounds, do not submit. We need relevant sounding drums, warm tracks…no mid range elements or harsh mixes that get in the way of dialogue. They should sound like mastered Pop hits! This is a very challenging category. But those who do it right will be put on the front of the line with editors. We need a ton of these current sounding tracks!”

    NOTE: This company is beefing up their catalog in a big way, so if they love what they hear from you, be prepared to have them ask you to send in 10 MORE Instrumental Cues in the same style in a relatively short period of time. This could be a case in which submitting three Instrumental Cues that are all “forward-able” is a good idea. It could show them you have the depth in your catalog.

    Your submissions should be at least 90 seconds long with button/stinger endings. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way shape of 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 a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split of all income generated by your music. In other words, you’ll equally co-own the Writer’s share and the Publisher’s share of the new title and split all income. Due to the nature of this deal, all composers need to have or be willing to set up Publishing Company with your P.R.O. if accepted into this Music Library. (It’s not that hard. You’re basically giving the P.R.O. an entity to which they can send your money!) You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch. You’ll maintain full ownership of the original Copyright and Master Recording. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like online or per CD. 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, January 31st, 2018. TAXI # Y180131IC

    POSITIVE, OPTIMISTIC INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a boutique Music Library with tons of credits in big Feature Films, countless TV Shows, and TV Commercials. They’re looking for Mid­to­Up Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references The Music Library gave us:

    Song/Instrumental Reference 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_2PNXr1TWU

    Song/Instrumental Reference 2:
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NLLzYZt42c&t=38s

    Song/Instrumental Reference 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJSoiIofews&t=64s

    Please submit contemporary sounding Instrumental Cues with a cheerful, optimistic, and positive feel, sound, and vibe. Your Instrumentation can be solely acoustic, or a combination of acoustic and electric instruments, as long as the overall production is solid from top to bottom. Be sure to stick with one mood and motif from beginning to end, while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses to add dynamics and a sense of forward momentum. Any organic/acoustic instrumentation you use should sound indistinguishable from the real thing! Anything that is obviously synthetic sounding or MIDI-driven won’t work for this pitch

    Quoting the Company: “You’d be smart to not include a prominent melody. Instead give it a nice motif that gives a sense of melody without fully including a melody that sounds like what a vocal part might do. Touches of melody work better for this type of instrumental.”

    All submissions should be around Two-Minutes long (give or take) with non-faded, buttoned endings. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Music Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal with a cool twist. You’ll keep 50% of all gross income generated by your music, plus you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share income generated by your PRO. In other words, if the company licenses your music under a blanket deal, you’ll get income. If they license it for a Youtube video, you’ll get income. Not all music libraries pay you for things like that! The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share.

    Because this is an Exclusive deal, the music you submit for this pitch cannot already be signed with any other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Composition rights. Please send as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD.

    NEW LISTING -- CURRENT SOUNDING EDM INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a well-respected Music Library with a very solid track record of TV and Film placements. This company ran a lot of listings with TAXI about 10 years ago, and placed a bunch of music from our members. They’ve recently started a new company, so this is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor, and they pay an Upfront Fee to Composers!

    They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

    “Jungle Pump” by Skrillex , Diplo & Valentino Khan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_PmFNJ5XaY

    “More Than You Know” by Axwell Λ Ingrosso: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsF05B8TFWg

    “2U” by David Guetta ft Justin Bieber: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X3xtRNb20s

    Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch. Please submit well-crafted EDM Instrumental Cues that have a fresh, current sound with great builds, infectious beats and rhythms with cool sounding ear candy throughout. Your submissions should feature a central melodic idea and build momentum and forward movement by adding and subtracting different elements to add dynamics and interest as your Cues progress. Be sure your synth patches are current sounding and not dated.

    Your submissions should be about 2 minutes long (give or take), with Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings. Please Do NOT copy the referenced bands 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 (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This Company pays $50 per Instrumental Cue for an EXCLUSIVE deal in which they get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. When placements generate sync fees over $1,000, additional income will be paid to the composer. 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 send 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.

    INSPIRING, ELEGANT INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a boutique Music Library with tons of credits in big Feature Films, countless TV Shows, and TV Commercials. They’re searching for positive, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following reference that we got from our client:

    Instrumental Reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFyAzXSe9Oo&t=75s

    Please submit elegant-sounding Instrumental Cues that have a modern, inspiring feel and vibe. The client is looking for a crossover of modern and acoustic instrumentation that has an “advertising-friendly” sound and could also work well as background music in a variety of other media. Build your Cue around a central melodic theme and mood while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as your piece progresses to add emotion and dynamics. Also, please avoid anything that’s overly busy or frenetic, as it might distract from dialogue.

    Quoting The Music Library: “Your Cues don’t need a prominent melody – rather, nice musical motives that work well as background music, with some sense of forward movement.”

    All submissions should be around Two-Minutes long (give or take) with non-faded, buttoned endings. Do NOT copy the referenced example in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    EMOTIONALLY POSITIVE INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a boutique Music Library with tons of credits in big Feature Films, countless TV Shows, and TV Commercials. They’re looking for Mid­to­Up Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references The Music Library gave us:

    Song/Instrumental Reference 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLrDHYWT4dE

    Song/Instrumental Reference 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4DoF_14D_w

    Please send them well-structured Instrumental Cues that rhythmically and melodically create an emotionally positive, feel-good mood that could easily work for a wide range of placements in TV Commercials. Your Cues can have a tasteful blend of organic, acoustic instrumentation and modern sounding electronic elements. Adding and subtracting instrumentation as the track develops will help keep it dynamically interesting, give it some forward momentum, and keep it from sounding too repetitive.

    There’s a good likelihood that these Cues will be pitched for TV Commercials, so the Music Library has specifically stated that all submissions must be “well-composed with nice production” and have an “advertising-friendly” sound.

    Quoting the Company: “You’d be smart to not include a prominent melody. Instead give it a nice motif that gives a sense of melody without fully including a melody that sounds like what a vocal part might do. Touches of melody work better for this type of instrumental.”

    Song/Instrumental Reference 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIHoFy9JCuY&t=69s

    Please give them warm, well-crafted Instrumentals that are in the stylistic ballpark of the references above. “Imagine a family sitting together in the warm light of the fireplace in their living room, or other 'cozy' places”. Instrumental Cues that are primarily acoustic-based should work best. Build your Cue around a central melodic theme, while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation to create dynamic builds and forward momentum. Anything that sounds stiff, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven won’t work for this pitch. Organic sounding material is what they’re looking for!

    ORIGINAL, NEW ORLEANS-style JAZZ INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Brand New, Non-Exclusive Music Library recently started by the CEO of another successful company. This company has asked TAXI to find them hundreds (probably thousands) of Instrumentals, Cues, and Songs over the next few months. It’s very unlikely that you’ve got music in this new catalog, so this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new catalog that will probably get a ton of placements!

    They’re looking for original, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that echo the lively, sound and vibe of these references:

    New Orleans Jazz: Best of New Orleans Jazz Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHE7I1MWbrc&t=48s

    Please submit well-crafted Instrumental Cues that instantly transport you to the heart of New Orleans. Be sure your submissions have impressive musicianship and feature authentic sounding instrumentation that’s commonly heard in this style of Jazz. Your overall Cue should have a fun, spirited, and lively mood that could create a perfect backdrop for travel shows, docu-series, and films!

    Build your Cue around a simple, central melodic theme, while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as your Cue progresses to keep it from sounding too repetitive or linear. Please avoid using any instruments that sound stiff, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven.

    All submissions should be about 2:00 in length (give or take), with Non-Faded 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 a NON-Exclusive, 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch.

    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:

    NOTE: We recently ran this opportunity as TAXI Listing # Y180103VC, but the company didn’t get enough material. If you made a submission to Listing # Y180103VC, please send different material this time around

    “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! 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.

Your instrumentation/production can vary, but should be somewhat stylistically consistent with the references above, but they’re not looking for clones.

    COOL, QUIRKY, INDIE POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a fast-growing, NON-Exclusive Production Music Library that’s sending music directly to the Music Supervisor of a popular series on the TV LAND network. They’re searching for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that fall in the general stylistic wheelhouse of artists like (but not limited to), HOLYCHILD, Dumblonde, Little Brutes, Daya, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references the client gave us to get in the general stylistic range of the type of songs they need:

    “Running Behind.” by HOLYCHILD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnFJpPFangI

    “Dare” by Daya: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAEERMj6Oc0

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions need to be really strong for this pitch, as this show sometimes uses signed artists and we want you to kick their butts ;-)

    Give them well-crafted songs that have undeniable Indie vibe. They’re looking for songs that are rhythmically engaging, with ear-grabbing melodies, great hooks, and a super catchy chorus. Your submissions can have a bit of a quirky quality to them, but make sure they maintain a commercially viable appeal. In other words, don’t color too far outside the lines, but being a little bit different could be a good thing. Be sure your vocal performance is well performed, with a delivery that’s in the ballpark of the referenced acts, but not a copy of what they’re doing.

    Lyric Tip: Party themes and relationship songs could both work on this show, but please avoid lyrics that tell their own “story.” Those would conflict with the show’s story line.

    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 license fees for songs on this show last season were up-to $1,000. The Music Library assumes it will likely be the same for this season. This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split.

    Please send them guitar-driven songs that sound like a believable Rock band, with authentic sounding Rock instrumentation, and a vocal performance that’s full of personality and Rock attitude. Your song should have a rockin’ rhythm section, with balls-out guitars, propulsive drums, thumping bass, and a big Rock chorus.

    Although the Music Library didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, anything that sounds like it would be at home on a Rock radio station could potentially work. Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are typically more usable. 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 pays $100 per Song for an EXCLUSIVE deal in which they get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. When placements generate sync fees over $1,000, additional income will be paid to the composer. 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 send 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 Wednesday, February 7th, 2018.

    CONTEMPORARY SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an excellent Film/TV Music Library that has a TON of awesome placements in many high-end Films and TV Shows. This is a high-end company with very few TAXI members in their catalog, so this is a great opportunity to connect with a top-notch company! They’re searching for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of these references:

    “Lottery” by Jade Bird: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QitrfiVlRG4

    “Saint” by Jordan Mackampa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brwO75bOQdw

    “Where's My Love” by SYML: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goWa6EzkCh4

    Please submit contemporary sounding Singer/Songwriter Songs with infectious melodies, memorable hooks, and a solid song-structure. Your production should be mainly acoustic, and have a feel and sound that are authentic to the genre. A simple acoustic-based performance with guitar or piano and vocals could do the trick if it’s really strong, or you can go with a small ensemble or fuller, band-type sound. Having a strong, compelling vocal performance will get your song to the top of the list for this pitch!

    Universal lyrics will work best, so please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity. 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).
