Songs for this listing need to be distinctively unique, visual, conversational, current sounding, radio-competitive, energetic, and have fresh melodies with that something extra that make listeners want to hum along. It's been a while since he's had a top 10 hit, and that's what this listing is focused on. He's known for his love songs. The artist is co-writing songs with some of Nashville's best for his next project, so you'll want to focus on top drawer, contemporary country tunes with a solid groove that are radio-friendly. Melodies need to be current, tightly structured, and feature stand-alone, super compelling hit choruses that come in by 1:00 minute into the tune. Limit verses to 2 or 3 max, and this publisher prefers tight structures like ABABCB or AABABCB that feature clear sectional contrast. It's recommended that you listen to recent hits by the artists mentioned to get a general vibe of tunes that could work for this artist. Lyrics need to be conversational, VERY VISUAL, unique, confident, uplifting and present fresh lyrical perspectives that folks can relate to. This artist has a wholesome image, so you'll want to avoid bro-country themes, references to cheating and drinking, as well as dark or depressing stories since they won't work for him. Lyrics that are packed with compelling details and imagery, rather than familiar clichés and overly repetitious lines will work best here.”

Per the referenced songs (above), originality really is the name of the game. Not so outside the box that it can't be a radio hit, but it has to be extremely fresh and original, and not something that you hear every day. No Bro Country, no stock melodies. He's going to be getting songs from the very best writers on Music Row sent his way, so it truly needs to be an A Game presentation from top to bottom."

Give him well-structured Hits with modern melodies, and a visual, direct, and engaging storyline that Nashville always needs! Your chorus needs to be incredibly strong and ready for radio.

Trisha Yearwood:
https://www.youtube.com/user/TrishaYearwoodVEVO

Maren Morris:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouWQ25O-Mcg

Quoting the Publisher: "We need compelling, R&B-influenced, modern Country Hits for a well-known, Multi-Grammy Award winning Country artist who has one of Country music's most recognizable voices. Like most country artists, she co-writes with some of Nashville's finest, so pitch your top drawer, memorable hits. Send authentic Modern Country tunes that are current with what's playing on Country radio. Please avoid songs that lean too Pop, and avoid stock-sounding melodies. Miranda Lambert's visual hit, 'Automatic,' which tugs the heartstrings and features a contemporary chorus is a great example of what's needed. Melodies need to be current, unique, tightly structured, and feature stand-alone choruses that lend themselves to powerful vocal harmonies. Please limit verses to 2 or 3 max, and ABABCB structures are definitely preferable. It's recommended that you listen to recent hits by the artists mentioned to get a general vibe of tunes that could work for the listing. Lyrics need to be conversational, VISUAL, emotional, positive, and present fresh themes that engage listeners on the heart level. Universal story lyrics are especially welcome, and the artist is past her 30's, so you'll want to pitch songs that she can authentically convey to her fans. (For example, songs about falling in love for the first time, getting married for the first time, etc. won't work here.) You'll want to avoid using clichés and familiar sounding phrases, and opt for unique, conversational lyrics that are packed to the brim with visuals. Overly repetitious, abstract, generalized, predictable lines won't fly for this, and you’d be smart to avoid submitting songs with drinking, cheating, depressing/negative themes. Pitch memorable songs that give listeners an uplifting experience.”

Great info, right? Acoustic demos can work for this pitch, but your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, and good enough to represent your song well. Fully produced demos are also welcomed, as always. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Publisher and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Tuesday, May 24th, 2016. TAXI #S160524CH

“Give Out” by Sharon Van Etten:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exJ3AG0JIeo

Quoting the Music Supervisor: “The film is a dark and dramatic modern day love story, with a really well-known cast, similar to the Film ‘Unfaithful.’ We’re looking for moody, dark, emotional, lost love, soul-searching type songs. Songs should be able to support and play under very emotional scenes and montage sequences.”

Give them well-crafted songs with emotionally engaging melodies, thought provoking lyrics, and a vocal performance that’s delivered in a intimate, sincere, and captivating way. Instrumentation can be solely acoustic, or have a fuller band sound, but should be somewhat consistent with the references above.

Introspective lyric themes about lost love will work really well for this pitch, but don’t limit yourself to just that idea!.

CONTEMPORARY GOSPEL SONGS with Male Vocals and some "Country Flair" are needed by a busy and well-respected Nashville Music Publisher for a legendary, Grammy-Winning Gospel artist working on his next record. Give them heartfelt, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs (amazing Power Ballads will be considered) that would appeal to the fans of artists like:

Josh Turner:
https://www.youtube.com/user/JoshTurnerVEVO

Jason Crabb:
https://www.youtube.com/user/JasonCrabbMusic

George Strait:
https://www.youtube.com/user/GeorgeStraitVEVO

Steven Curtis Chapman:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrWMBC6yoME&list=PL0B6BED66F36756CD

Quoting the source: "We need Contemporary Country-Gospel (not old-timey Southern gospel). The artist is co-writing songs with some of Nashville's best for his next project, so you'll want to focus on top drawer, contemporary Country-Gospel tunes with single potential for radio formats from progressive Southern Gospel to neo-traditional Country. Old-timey, Traditional Southern Gospel tunes will NOT work for this artist. Melodies need to be current, tightly structured, and feature stand-alone, super compelling hit choruses. Limit verses to 2 or 3 max, and this publisher prefers ABABCB song forms. It's recommended that you listen to recent hits by the artists referenced to get a general vibe of tunes that could work for this artist. Capture listeners with an undeniable, unique title/hook that will help your song stand out above the clutter. It's hard to underestimate the importance of having a totally original, catchy title/hook and fresh lyrical concept that tugs the heartstrings for this listing. (The honest truth is that if the title doesn't pique this artist's interest, then he probably won't find the time to listen to the song given his incredibly busy schedule). Lyrics need to be conversational and present fresh lyrical perspectives. Relatable story songs set in the present day are welcome. Keep in mind that uplifting themes of grace, hope and redemption will work best here. Please avoid using Christian clichés and scriptural sounding phrases, and opt for unique, conversational lines that are packed to the brim with visuals, original detail, and that include a compelling story line that tugs the heartstrings.”

Great info, right? Your demo quality needs to be competitive with songs being pitched on Music Row. The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Publisher. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Publisher - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Thursday, May 5th, 2016. TAXI #Y160505GO

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

Quoting the Supervisor: "Ideally, the instrumentals would be minimally arranged, with a beginning, middle and end type structure, with a sting-out type ending that could be used to end a scene on."

Please submit rhythmically and melodically compelling Cues that deliver a dark, edgy, authentic sound and style. Your submissions should use current-sounding production techniques and sounds that are typical of modern Hip-Hop cuts. Your Cues should have plenty of forward momentum, both rhythmically and melodically. Add and subtract various instruments as the Cue progresses to keep it from sounding like a one-dimensional "beat." Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only 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).

They offer a NON-EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split any syncs fee 50/50. You'll retain 100% of the Master rights, and the Library will get 100% of the Publishing for any placements they generate. You'll get 100% of the writer's share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity. Please submit one to three Cues online or per CD.

HEARTFELT, ACOUSTIC-Driven (Piano and/or Guitar) SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an extremely active Music Licensing Company with a really long track record of great Film and TV placements.

"I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1-4u9W-bns&nohtml5=False

"Try" by Colbie Caillat:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXoZLPSw8U8&nohtml5=False

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbqAooKfuwI&nohtml5=False

Submit well-crafted Songs that hit you right in the heart, with attention grabbing melodies, and a compelling chorus that sounds like something you'd hear on an actual record. Your vocals should have a commercially appealing sound and style that generally reflects the references above. Lyric themes should be honest, relatable, and universal in nature. Please avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, and brands. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for feel, texture, tone, and vibe. This Music Library splits ALL sync fees 50/50 with you. They'll get 100% of the Publisher's share, and you'll get 100% of the Writer's share. This is an EXCLUSIVE deal, so be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control the Master Recording and Copyright. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Saturday, May 14th, 2016. TAXI #S160514SS


Submit your music to this opportunity now.



NEW LISTING -- "PATRIOTIC" ACOUSTIC-based SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Nashville-based, Grammy Award-Winning Producer who needs great songs for the artists he's currently working with. This producer has cut songs from TAXI members, and needs radio-worthy Songs in All-Tempos in the general stylistic ballpark of artists like:

Colbie Caillat:
https://www.youtube.com/user/ColbieCaillatVEVO

Jason Mraz:
https://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialJasonMraz

Kate Voegele:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY9hFX39cM0

Jon McLaughlin:
https://www.youtube.com/user/JonMcLaughlinVEVO

Please submit original, current-sounding Songs with solid song structure, fresh melodies, and a stand-out chorus that makes listeners feel proud and patriotic every time they hear it. The stronger your demo is, the better the chances of them cutting your song. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, and include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Monday, May 30th, 2016. TAXI #S160530PS


Submit your music to this opportunity now.



NEW LISTING -- UPLIFTING, ACOUSTIC-based SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male Vocals and lots of mainstream appeal are needed by a Grammy-winning Record Producer. He's searching for radio-worthy, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in that could be found on playlists with acts like (but not limited to):

James Bay:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsPq9mzFNGY

Ed Sheeran:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp-EO5I60KA

Jamie Lawson:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-lI_tgQMMk

Please submit hopeful, uplifting songs with inviting melodies, memorable hooks, and a compelling chorus that leaves listeners feeling inspired! Lyric themes about the inspirational aspects of love and life could work well for this pitch, but you don't need to limit yourself to just those ideas. Acoustic, stripped-down demos will work for this Producer, but your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well and get them excited about cutting it. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Wednesday, June 6th, 2016. TAXI #S160601SS

4 Things That Will Make You Successful

Dear Passengers,

One of the most frequently asked questions TAXI members ask us is, "How long after you send them my music will it take for them to contact me?"

The answer is: Anywhere from a day or two... weeks, months, maybe even years. Yes, I said "Years!"

I know it's painful to even imagine waiting for years, but it happens all the time. Why would a company ask for music, and take years to contact the person who created it? Sometimes it's simply procrastination (c'mon, we're all guilty of that!).

Sometimes the person or company that requested it gets overloaded, and the music file sits on a computer desktop until the decks clear off a bit. I've got documents and ideas of all sorts sitting on my computer's desktop from two years ago. They're too important to make them invisible by filing them, so they sit on my desktop as daily reminders. Eventually I'll act on them!

Maybe the most logical reason you don't get a quick response is that the music supervisor or publisher found something else, and you'll never hear from them. But maybe they liked your music enough that they saved it in a rainy day file or on their desktop for a future project.

You'll Feel Better When You Read These...

I remembered seeing some posts on our Forum about how long it sometimes takes to hear back. I found these three examples on just the first page of our Success Stories area!

3 Forwards 2 Years Ago Return Library Deal

1 year and 2 month: 3 deals

Library wants songs 2 years after a forward

And here's a similar story from member Nathan Nasby about a relationship started at our free convention two or three years ago:

Two placements from a publisher I met at the Rally

Here's What You Need to Do...

I can't remember who first coined this "mantra," but I know that TAXI member Steven Guiles made bumper stickers and gave them out at the Road Rally a few years ago. These are the 4 things that will make you successful!

"WRITE, SUBMIT, FORGET, REPEAT"

In other words, don't wait by the phone or check your email every ten minutes when your music is forwarded by TAXI. Don't torture yourself! Be patient... actually, forget that a music supervisor, publisher, or record company has your music in their hands and move forward. Keep writing. Build momentum. Keep filling the pipeline.

The more music you make, the more music you'll get out in the world and the greater your chances will be! You'll also improve your skills and get faster at writing and producing with each new effort.

TAXI's most successful members would all tell you that it's all about quality and quantity — much more than it's about one single song or instrumental cue making a fortune.

Talk to you soon,
Michael

P.S. We just heard from a Music Supervisor that she is using EIGHT pieces of music from TAXI members in just one Independent Film. If you obsessively look at music credits like I do, then you know that it's extremely rare that any one publisher, music library, or record label gets more than a couple of placements in any single film.

Our members just nailed EIGHT placements, and the Music Supervisor on this film is very selective! Go TAXI members!!!!!

P.P.S. If you want great stuff like that to happen for you, then find some opportunities that you have the right music for! We've got 35 brand new Industry Listings for you.

CUSTOM CRITIQUES

If you have material you would like critiqued without responding to a specific listing, you've come to the right place. Fill out the submission form with the song title(s) and author(s) as usual, but in place of the listing number write "CUSTOM" in capital letters.
Please include a note specifying the aspects you would like the listener to address.
For example, some members like to have their craft (lyrics, rhyme, structure, etc.) closely critiqued. Others want to know for which genre their writing is best suited (sorry, but we can't recommend specific listings for you to pitch to). Still others want a review of their photos, bios, package, etc.
The submission fee is $20 per song. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and make sure to specify if you want the CD back, or just a critique. Remember, these critiques are for your own edification and development and NOT targeted for a label or publisher, and therefore will not be forwarded.
