    CUTTING EDGE POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Major Label A&R Executive for an up-and-coming International Artist who has already worked with tons of A-List Artists! They’re looking for contemporary, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of artists like (but not limited to) MØ, Sia, Halsey, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get a feel for the style and vibe they need:

    “Nights With You” by MØ: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwqpA_tQcXQ

    “The Greatest” by Sia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKSRyLdjsPA

    “Now Or Never” by Halsey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzQTc0-iBX8

    Give them well-crafted songs that are rhythmically engaging, with compelling melodies, great hooks, and a super infectious chorus. This artist is unique, so they’re looking for “interesting ideas” and “different sounds,” but nothing too quirky. In other words, they’re looking for something new and different, but not so outside the lines that it lacks commercial appeal. Your lyrics should have a fresh, contemporary approach, with original and boundary-pushing themes that once again, don’t color so far outside the lines that they aren’t relatable. You’d be wise to have a really great vocal performance to help sell the artist and label on cutting your song. Your recording and overall production quality needs to be clean, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Record Company - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Friday, July 7th, 2017. TAXI #Y170707CP

    Please submit soulfully expressive Songs that are lyrically top-notch, with engaging melodies, infectious hooks, and a big, radio-ready chorus. Please make sure your vocal performance and overall recording are competitive enough to get this MEGA Producer interested and excited about your song. We’ve been told that the Producer is “Looking for songs that are lyrically strong and clever.”

    TAXI Tip: The song does not need to have a top-notch production because this Music Producer will likely be contributing to the production, unless it's already stellar.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. 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 Producer- No Full Critiques. Please submit 1-3 Songs no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, July 9th, 2017.

Stripped-down songs with Guitar/Vocal or Piano/Vocal are okay for this pitch as long as your recording quality is clean, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well.

    TAXI Tip: Your song does not need to have a top-notch production because this Producer will likely be creating his own production.

    TAXI TIP: You'll be going up against the best writers in Nashville so bring your A Game. No stock melodies, incredibly fresh and unique ideas and stories that you just don't hear every day, but that are also still commercial enough to be huge radio singles.

Your songs should be well-crafted to a Nashville standard from start to finish, with visually descriptive, conversational lyrics, and a super-catchy chorus that sounds like something that hasn’t been done a thousand times before. This artist is on the younger side, so your lyrics shouldn’t be too risqué or lean too juvenile either! Stripped-down demos or full productions are both okay to submit. In either case, your song needs to sound like a hit by the end of the first chorus, so bring your “A-Game.” You’d be wise to have a really solid vocal performance to help get the label and artist excited about cutting your song.

    Give him well-structured Songs that sound like a HIT, with modern, fresh, unique melodies, and a visually descriptive storyline and lyric. This act is slightly edgier than your typical Country artist, so you can step a little outside the box, but it still has to be commercial enough to be a huge radio single.

    Please send them original songs that have a genuine 1980’s sound and style. Your vocals should be well performed from start to finish, with a solid ‘80s-style delivery. Your submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded in the late or early 1980s, or they can be songs recently recorded and just inspired by that era. Dated sounds and production could work in your favor for this pitch!

    Your lyrics can be along the lines of what you’d typically hear in this genre, but avoiding references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity is a smart idea. It makes your music more licensable! Do NOT copy the referenced artists 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).

    “Vaya Con Dios” by Freddy Fender https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Q6OH3L9Pqg

    “Ay Te Dejo En San Antonio” by Flaco Jimenez https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OppHs_RHISo

    “Hey Baby (Que Paso)” by Texas Tornados https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vrKL7ZBQ4Y

    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 than worrying about pristine recordings. Good demos and master recordings are all of interest to this company.

    TAXI Tip: Your songs can feature vocals performed in either Spanish, English, OR a combination of both!

    This Publisher is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and big Feature Films when they need music that is authentically from a particular time period. The Publisher pays you an upfront fee for the master and composition rights. You’ll keep the Writer’s share of the Publishing and make applicable income through your P.R.O.

    TRAILER-Style HIP-HOP SONGS with a Country Influence (AKA HICK-HOP) and Male Vocals are needed by a NON-Exclusive Music Library that needs quite a bit of fresh, new material for TV and Film pitches. They’re searching for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    “Long Hard Times to Come” by Gangstagrass featuring T.O.N.E.-z: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAffMSpW8KM

    “Workin” by Big Smo ft. Alexander King: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igZweLr604Y

    “Country Folks” by Bubba Sparxxx ft. Colt Ford & Danny Boone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJUx8didhZA

    Please submit original, well-crafted songs that have a noticeable Country feel and vibe, but with a fresh and current Hip-Hop approach. Your song should be well-structured, with banging beats, and a confident vocal delivery that’s full of attitude and swagger. Your production should be polished and have attention-grabbing melodies and instrumentation that tastefully fuses Country and Hip-Hop together.

    TAXI Tip: These songs will be pitched for Film Trailers, so even though they’re song structure they still need to have a semblance of a three act trailer structure: intro that sets the tone, middle exposition, and a final big, huge, epic build.

    Watch This: Here’s a really good example of how a song (albeit, not a Hick Hop song) is used in the three acts of a Film Trailer!

    “Wolf of Wall Street” Trailer #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idAVRvQeYAE

    Your lyric themes can vary, but should be in the wheelhouse of what you’d typically hear in the Rap/Hip-Hop genre, but without profanity. 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 guide for tempo, tone, and 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).

    NOTE: They will need an instrumental-only version of your song as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now is the Full Song with vocals, but please have a mix-minus-vocal on hand and ready to send it at a moment’s notice if you get a call or email from the Music Library. If you don’t have the ability to get your mix-minus-vocal in the Music Library hands within an hour after being contacted, please don’t submit for this!

    This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share of what they place. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this pitch. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD.

    RE-IMAGINED TRAILER-STYLE COVER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a great new, NON-Exclusive Music Library started by a highly experienced Film and TV Music veteran! Please listen to the following examples the client gave us to get a general idea of the range of music that could work for this pitch:

    Ghost in the Shell Official Trailer 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4VmJcZR0Yg

    Smells Like Teen Spirit - Live Orchestra & Choir Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4VfaxeYOt8

    THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pG_Q5_0Gok

    Please submit well-crafted songs that give a contemporary, innovative, and creative take on older songs. Your productions can range from stripped-down versions that might only be a guitar/vocal, piano/vocal, ukulele/vocal, or a band-sized ensemble, or a full orchestral version. Any acoustic instruments you use should sound real and organic, not synth-y or obviously quantized. Your covers can come from genres such as Rock, R&B, Country, Pop etc. as long as it’s original and engaging from top to bottom. Taking upbeat songs and making them dark and moody and more downbeat could make your submission stick out for this pitch.

    TAXI Tip 1: You don’t have to use all of the song’s original melody, but the song should be recognizable. If you stray too far away from the original melody or lyric, your cover may not be as appealing.

    TAXI Tip 2: These are being pitched for Trailers, so experiment with breaking up the song structure to deliver a three act trailer structure: Intro that sets the tone, Middle exposition, and a Final, big, huge, epic build.

    Your songs should be full-length, in the 3 to 4 minute ballpark. Non-Faded/Buttoned endings will work best for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced 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 offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share of what they place. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this pitch. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD.

    ORIGINAL ORCHESTRAL SONGS with Female OPERATIC/CHORAL Vocals are needed by a great new, NON-Exclusive Music Library that’s been launched by a highly experienced Film and TV Music veteran! They’re on the hunt for Songs in All-Tempos are in the general stylistic ballpark of the references we got from them:

    Note: This Music Library needs songs to pitch to a Music Supervisor doing Film Trailers for huge Hollywood movies. Sync Fees can range from $15,000 and up, depending on the particular spot and ultimate use.

    “Never Let Me Go” by Angèlia Grace: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRbiO958ai8

    Epic Western Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z699pbUYpqk

    “Hallelujah” by Live Symphony & Choir: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6g8kkx7C-c

    TAXI Tip: As you’ll see, the references aren’t trailers, and as such, don’t have the three act trailer structure that your submissions should have.

    Give them emotionally powerful compositions that sound like a real-deal Theatrical Trailer that’s consistent with the level of quality, style, and impact of what you would hear in a big budget Hollywood Trailer. Your song structure should follow what you’d typically hear in film trailers with three “acts” that build as your composition progresses. Be sure any orchestral instrumentation you use sounds very convincing, and please avoid anything stiff or obviously MIDI-driven for this pitch. Non-Lyrical Choral/Vocal samples are okay for this pitch as long as they sound really, really authentic, however, mixing live vocals and choral samples could probably be your best bet.

    You can have some lyrics, but non-lyric vocalizations and foreign language could work as well. Universal lyrics are still recommended, 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 as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share of what they place.

Your Instrumental should have a hip, young, Indie style, so please avoid submitting anything that’s too electronic-based, pop-y, or blues-y.

    Submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material 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).

    “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJ2ClPjFnB8

    “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqyT8IEBkvY

    “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, well-crafted Instrumental Cues 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 overall production should be current sounding (not dated, please) and have a slick, polished, Top 40 sound. Be sure to craft your submissions around a central melodic motif, while adding and subtracting instruments and elements in and out as your Cue progresses to keep it from sounding too repetitive or one-dimensional. They do NOT want any polysynth or synth lead sounds to TAKE THE PLACE of a vocal.

    Quoting The Music Library – “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.”

    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 Cues in the same style in a relatively short period of time. This could be a case in which submitting three Cues that are all “forward-able” is a good idea. It could show them you have the depth in your catalog.

    All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Buttoned/Stinger Endings and good Edit Points are encouraged for this pitch. BTW, “good edit point” does not necessarily mean that you need a full rest for the edit point. Kick drums, snare hits, etc. that are easy to cut on and designate a section, will do the trick! Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs 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 split. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this pitch. Please submit one to three Instrumentals Cues 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 (PDT), on Monday, July 3rd, 2017. TAXI #Y170703TI

Submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded back in the day, or they can be songs recently recorded.

Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is (up to) $1,000, depending on the ultimate placement.

    Note: This is their temp song, but they are obviously not trying to copy it.

    Please submit original French Jazz Songs that have a classy vibe, similar to the reference mentioned above, with authentic-sounding instrumentation, solid musicianship, great melodies, and a smooth jazzy vocal performance.

    They didn’t specific a particular lyric theme, but lyrics that don’t have references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing. Please do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe.

    Latin

    Return to List of Categories

    ALTERNATIVE LATIN ARTISTS and/or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-known Indie Label that’s always on the lookout for great new talent to sign. They’re looking Alt-Latin acts that could fall in a pretty wide range of styles, including, but definitely not limited to the acts referenced below:

    “La Gringa” by Yerba Buena: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ll6wIIrC6R8

    “Lo Que Quieras” by Dënver: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05VXGPVr5Jc

    “Mentiras” by Los Amigos Invisibles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEjrqWcKzbE

    Please send them anything you’d expect to hear on today’s Latin charts, but with an Alternative influence. If you’re wondering if your music is Alt Latin, listen to the references again, and search for more examples on Youtube. This genre is very wide-ranging, so there’s no exact description for what it sounds like or what they’re looking for. If your music has an edge or is a hybrid of Latin and some other edgy genre like Punk, Hip Hop, or even Hard Rock, you just might fall into the Alt Latin genre! Vocals performed in either Spanish, English, OR a combination of both can work for this pitch. Please be sure your bio includes any highlights such as, (but not limited to), touring, fanbase, or impressive sales or streaming figures you may have. Submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics, photo, and bio.

    INDIE POP/ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement in a $5,000,000 Independent Feature Film with some name-brand actors starring in it. They’re looking for rockin’ Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with artist like (but not limited to) Hippo Campus, Ten Tonnes, Misfires, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references (we got from the client) to get an idea of what could work for this pitch:

    “Way It Goes” by Hippo Campus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3TQKEUne5Q

    “Silver Heat” by Ten Tonnes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vqhn5_CQ-o8

    “Come On Over” by MISFIRES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRZwCHFiVtk

    Please submit unique, hip, and original songs that would feel right at home on a playlist with the songs above. Your submissions should have a killer rhythm section, solid musicianship, and a young-ish Indie vibe going on. Vocals, with an Indie sounding delivery will work best.

    TAXI Tip: We know the Music Supervisor especially liked “Way it Goes” by Hippo Campus, but felt that the “drums were distracting.” We think it was the level of the drums in the mix, not the actual drum part. In any case, that was the song the supe felt was close!

    No specific lyric themes were requested, so anything that sounds like it’s what you’d normally hear in the Indie Pop/Rock genre could potentially work. Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing. 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).

    Lyric themes can vary, however, positive lyrics will probably do better than moody, depressing topics. Universal lyrics will make your song more appealing, so please avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form.

Your song should be well-crafted and have a slight Caribbean flavor, but not so much that it takes away from the mainstream appeal. Having slick production, insanely great beats, and an awesome vocal performance will all work in your favor for this pitch.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something that you’d expect to hear on the Top 40 Charts. You’d be smart to avoid references to brands, places, profanity, and names for this pitch.

    NEW LISTING -- YOUTHFUL POP SONGS with “Friendship” Lyrics and Female Vocals are needed for an (up-to) $5,000, NON-Exclusive placement with the Music Supervisor of what we think should be a big Feature Film (based on its predecessors).

    “Graduation (Friends Forever)” by Vitamin C HD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foyAOoVagWw

    “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG2zyeVRcbs

    TAXI Tip: They specifically need songs in that stylistic ballpark with lyric themes about friendship and comradery. . NOTE: The Climb reference does NOT have the friendship lyric theme like the other references; however, the Music Supervisor used it as a reference (we believe) to highlight the organic, acoustic characteristic of the song.

    Please submit well-crafted songs that are instantly engaging, and have a solid Pop song structure with creative hooks, memorable melodies, and an unbelievably catchy chorus. Your production should be top-notch from beginning to end for this pitch. Adding some acoustic elements such as pianos and guitars could also help you for this pitch, but they’re not absolutely necessary. Be sure your vocals are polished and confident, with a Pop-Style delivery.

    Avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, places, and profanity in your lyrics is strongly recommended. Please do NOT copy the referenced songs or artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone.

    Return to List of Categories

    HIGH ENERGY RAP/HIP HOP SONGS with Male Vocals are needed QUICKLY for an (up-to) $1,500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement in a Feature Film with A-List Stars in it. They’re looking for Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of artists and songs like (but not limited to), DJ Khaled, DJ Snake, Lil Jon, etc., etc., etc. Please check out the references they gave us to hear the range of the sound, style, and vibe that could work for this film:

    “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGXzlRoNtHU

    Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake, Lil Jon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMUDVMiITOU

    “Bend Ova ft” by Lil Jon ft. Tyga: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGUX7cIMwoM

    Give them original Rap/Hip-Hop Songs with hard-hitting beats, catchy hooks throughout, and a big anthemic chorus that’s full of energy. Be sure your vocal delivery is highly rhythmic and has plenty of swagger and attitude. Your song does not necessarily have to be the typical Hip-Hop song structure for this pitch. Your submission can be primarily instrumental driven with catchy hooks and chants that weave in and out, as long as your beat has the right vibe and energy to drive the overall momentum of the song.

    Lyric themes can range, but should be something that’s fun and able to work well in the context of a party scene. Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your songs more appealing to the Supervisor. 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 is (up-to) $1,500, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll get 100% of the sync fee, you’ll keep 100% of your Publishing and Master ownership, and you’ll also get 100% of any applicable performance royalties. No Publisher splits! You must own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Music Supervisor - No full critiques.

    ORIGINAL, 1990’s-Style ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by the CEO of a Music Licensing Company that’s building a new catalog for Film, TV, Video Game, and TV Commercial placements. This company is new, and headed up by a veteran Film/TV music executive with tons of relationships and a very long list of high-quality placements. They’re on the hunt for authentic sounding, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that fall in the general stylistic wheelhouse of artists like (but not limited to), Soundgarden, Wolfmother, Nirvana, etc., etc. Please listen to the following references the client gave us to get yourself in the general ballpark of the style they need:

    “Fell On Black Days” by Soundgarden: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySzrJ4GRF7s

    “Joker and the Thief” by Wolfmother: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySjXFjLTagQ

    “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTWKbfoikeg

    Please submit well-crafted, guitar-driven, 90’s sounding songs with rockin’ rhythm sections, authentic Rock instrumentation, anthemic choruses, and a vocal performance that’s full of ‘90s attitude and swagger. Your submission does not have to have been recorded in the 1990s, but it should capture the overall energy, feel, and vibe. However, if you happen to have some old recordings from that era, they’d love to hear them!

    TAXI Tip: This is a great time to get in on the ground floor of this new company, knowing that they need a lot of material, yet already have at least a decade of relationships with Music Supervisors already in place!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something in the ballpark of what you would have heard in 1990’s or early 2000’s Rock music, so please be sure not to reference anything outside that era. Avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places. 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 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. You must own or control 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 submit one to three Songs online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Thursday, June 29th, 2017.

    NEW LISTING -- INDIE, ALT-ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by an extremely busy Music Licensing Company with a really long track record of awesome placements in Film, TV, and Commercials. This listing recently ran as #U170625AR, but the Music Library didn’t find what they were looking for and asked us to re-run the listing one more time, with a short deadline. If you submitted to listing #U170625AR, please send in different material this time around.

    They’re STILL searching for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that fall in the general stylistic wheelhouse of artists like (but not limited to), RIVVRS, Cold War Kids, Young The Giant, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references we got from the client to get yourself in the general range of the sound, style, and vibe they need:

    “Hold On” by RIVVRS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3upIX-0F_FA

    “The New Saint Jude” by Andrew Bird: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1S3BMere83Y

    “Open Up The Heavens” Cold War Kids: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT8wFQFBqMk

    “Something To Believe In” by Young The Giant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_ZRWZv14SA

    Please submit unique and original songs that have lots of attitude and tons of Indie appeal. Your submission should be rhythmically and melodically interesting, and have an unforgettable chorus. You can incorporate some minimal electronic elements, but your song should be primarily driven by traditional Rock instrumentation. Having a distinctive vocal sound/identity could also help you stand out for this pitch.

    No specific lyric themes were requested, so anything that sounds like it’s what you’d normally hear in the Alt Rock genre could potentially work. Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing. 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. 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.

    EPIC, TRAILER-Style ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a NON-Exclusive Music Library that’s actively pitching to Movie Trailer Music Supervisors. They’re searching for Mid-to-Up Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got from the client:

    “Uprising” by Muse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8KQmps-Sog

    “Welcome To The Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRKJiM9Njr8

    “Heaven Knows” by The Pretty Reckless: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHBxJCq99jA

    Please submit well-crafted Rock Songs that are big, powerful, epic, and sound like something that could be used in a Blockbuster Trailer. Your overall submission should be rhythmically, melodically and lyrically engaging with authentic sounding Rock instrumentation and a swagger filled vocal performance.

    TAXI Tip: These songs will be pitched for Film Trailers, so even though they’re likely structured in typical song form, they still need to have some semblance of a three act Trailer structure: intro that sets the tone, middle exposition, and a big, epic build in the last section.

    Watch This: Here’s a really good example of how a song (although, not a Rock song) is used in the three acts of a Film Trailer!

    “Wolf of Wall Street” Trailer #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idAVRvQeYAE

    Lyrics that don’t have references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your song more appealing. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists 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).

    NOTE: They will need an instrumental-only version of your song as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now is the Full Song with vocals, but please have a mix-minus-vocal on hand and ready to send it at a moment’s notice if you get a call or email from the Music Library. If you don’t have the ability to get your mix-minus-vocal in the Music Library hands within an hour after being contacted, please don’t submit for this!

    This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share of what they place. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this pitch. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    CONTEMPORARY INDIE ROCK SONGS with some Pop influence and Male Vocals are needed by a Major Record Label A&R Executive for a charted Band that’s working on their next album. Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be heard the same playlist as (but not limited to) songs like these:

    “Shut Up and Dance” by WALK THE MOON: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JCLY0Rlx6Q

    “If” by R5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3RkadGwHbw

    “My Type” by SAINT MOTEL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyVPyKrx0Xo

    Please submit well-crafted Songs with modern sounding production that have a cool stylistic blend of Electronic and Rock elements. Be sure your Songs sound current and polished, similar to the vibe of the artists mentioned above. Your overall demo and recording quality also needs to be competitive enough to get them interested in your song, although it’s likely they’ll be cutting a new version. 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 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 (PDT), on Friday, July 7th, 2017.

    ORIGINAL, CHORAL-Based CUES are needed by a very successful Music Library with a very lengthy and impressive list of great placements in Film and TV. They’re searching for Down-To-Mid Tempo Cues that fall within the general stylistic range of the following references that we got from our client:

    “Aurora ” Hans Zimmer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oTbyENpX58

    “Water Night” by Eric Whitacre: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ixP0NiGZnw

    “Ave Maria” by Javier Busto: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoyekOkHBpY

    Give them compelling Choral Cues that are well-crafted and have a emotional and evocative mood. Your Cue should heavily feature choir/choral elements as the main foundation, or your Cue can be completely choir. Cues can range from classical church choral pieces, all the way up to more cinematic soundtrack style arrangements. They’re open to hearing excellent virtual choral samples, although it’s preferred if they’re blended with real voices or ideally, a real choir if achievable.

    Quoting The Library: “Absolute highest quality sample libraries/production only, bad or unconvincing midi sounds when replicating live instruments will result in a track being rejected regardless how good the production is.”

    TAXI Tip: An authentic sound quality is REALLY important in this pitch. Great library sound patches such as “Cinesamples Voxos” or “EastWest Symphonic Choirs” are fine, but not a generic vocal pad keyboard setting!

    Submissions should be at least two-minutes long (give or take), with non-faded, buttoned endings with a natural decay/ring out. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (Great sounding home recordings are fine).

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal, and an 80/20 split in the Writer’s favor for any applicable download fees by clients from their Library! Because 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. 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 submit. Please submit one to three Instrumental Cues online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    FRENCH “CHANSON” STYLE SONGS with Male Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement in a big-budget Indie Feature Film with several well-known actors in it. They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that have the general style and vibe of the following references:

    “Douce France” by Charles Trenet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ij1vtzIFlMg

    “Ne Me Quitte Pas” by Jacques Brel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2wmKcBm4Ik

    “Les Feuilles Mortes” by Yves Montand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xo1C6E7jbPw

    Please submit original Chanson songs that sound like the real thing, with great musicianship, captivating melodies, and a very distinctive vocal performance that’s performed in French. They would love to hear songs that start off with just a piano intro without vocals and has a section of the song where it’s slower then picks up energy speed.

    Note: We know that’s a lot of specificity. If you’ve got a great song that fits the request, but doesn’t have the slow section, take the shot! We think they’ll have a really hard time finding that and may have to find a way to work around it.

    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. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

    The estimated license fee for this placement is (up to) $1,000, 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.
