    CURRENT-SOUNDING, ADULT CONTEMPORARY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a New, NON-Exclusive Music Library recently started by the CEO of another successful company. They’re eager to find modern, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of artists like (but not limited to) Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references for the general sound and vibe they’re on the hunt for:

    “One Last Song” by Sam Smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AXo-bYGXI4

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

    “Love” by Lana Del Rey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-NTv0CdFCk

    Please submit Songs with top-notch songwriting, contemporary melodies, and a hit-worthy chorus that has tons of commercial appeal. A simple acoustic-based performance could do the trick, or you can go all out with a small ensemble or a full production, as long as the material is super strong and contemporary sounding. A compelling vocal performance that drives home the heartfelt meaning of the lyric could be the icing on the cake.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something you’d typically hear on the Adult Contemporary genre. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will have an edge. Do NOT copy the referenced artist or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Genre appropriate 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 (PDT), on Sunday, June 3rd, 2018. TAXI #Y180603AC

    Blues

    Return to List of Categories

    BLUES/ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a large TV Production Company’s Non-Exclusive, In-House Music Library that supplies music directly to its own roster of Hit Reality Shows. They’re searching for compelling, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got from our client:

    “Howlin’ for You” by The Black Keys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSCsoQ87MQ8

    “Level” by The Raconteurs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uhLJ3sL4eM

    “Heartbroken, In Disrepair” by Dan Auerbach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0N2xsFiOOo

    Please give them well-structured, Blues/Rock Songs that have an authentic, passionate, and soulful approach. Your overall production should have a cool and edgy vibe, with thumping drums, dirty Blues-inspired guitar riffs, and driving bass lines. Your vocal performance should have some attitude and grit to it, and should sound like what you’d expect to typically hear from artists in this very popular genre.

    Lyric themes can be about anything you’d typically expect to hear in a Bluesy Rock Song. Universal lyrics will work best, so please avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced bands or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone and overall vibe. Genre-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal. You’ll split any applicable sync fees 50/50. You’ll get 100% of the Master rights and Writer’s share, and the Library will get 100% of the Publishing for any placements they generate. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity. Please send as Short critiques only.

    HEAVY METAL CHRISTMAS SONGS (Original or Public Domain) with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a New, NON-Exclusive, European Music Library recently started by the CEO of another successful company. This company has just started running Listings with TAXI, so this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor!

    "Santa Claus is Coming to Town” by Dokken: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytCMN1DJpzI

    "Jingle Balls" by Korn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP3I86sGDRE

    Please submit well crafted Original or Public Domain Christmas Songs that deliver an authentic Heavy Metal sound and style that’s in the general wheelhouse of the references above. Songs should have chunky guitar riffs, killer bass lines, heavy-handed drums and a lead vocal with lots of attitude and Rock swagger. If you’re submitting a Public Domain cover, please stick to the song’s original melody and lyric (in the context of being Metal), so it’s familiar to listeners.

    If you’re submitting an original song, lyrics that are about the Holiday Season will probably work better than religious songs, considering the context of the references. Please do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with any other Companies or Catalogs. Any sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share. There are no performance royalties for cover versions of Public Domain material.

    If you’re submitting Public Domain songs, please double check to make sure the songs you submit are truly in the Public Domain! In case you’re unsure, here’s a link that will help: Public Domain Christmas Songs: https://www.easysonglicensing.com/pages/help/articles/copyright/christmas-songs-in-the-public-domain.aspx

    You must own or control your Master and Copyright for any original songs you pitch. You need to own or control the Master Recording if you’re submitting a cover of a Public Domain song. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    ALT-COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a large TV Production Company’s Non-Exclusive, In-House Music Library that supplies music directly to its own roster of Hit Reality Shows. Give them Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be heard on a playlist with artists or acts like (but not limited to) Whiskeytown, Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the references below to get a general idea of what they need:

    “Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart Tonight” by Whiskeytown: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhUji_YKHJw

    “Moonshiner” by Uncle Tupelo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppiol9oetOk

    “Catching On” by Son Volt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jegeSDitW8

    Please submit well-crafted songs that have an authentic Alternative Country sound, with well-played Country-based instrumentation, strong melodic ideas, awesome lyrics, and a vocal performance that that generally reflects the style of the referenced songs.

    Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, universal lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are always a good bet. Do NOT copy or rip off 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 deal. You’ll split any applicable sync fees 50/50.

    COUNTRY POP SONGS with Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed by TUESDAY for an (up to) $7,500, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor/TV Production Company placement in a HIT TV Show that’s airing on a Major Broadcast Network. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic ballpark of the following reference we got from our client:

    Note: The show’s production company routinely takes 100% of the Publisher’s share of songs that get placed on the show. You’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share and get the full sync fee (up to $7,500). We think they do this to keep the song from appearing elsewhere, and to give themselves the control they would likely prefer to have should they want to include the song on an album released at a later date or in syndicated episodes in years ahead.

    “Butterflies” by Kacey Musgraves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM5Xa1FvNQQ

    “Heartbeat” by Carrie Underwood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg50JGPEoo8

    “Our Song” by Taylor Swift: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jb2stN7kH28

    Please submit commercially appealing, well-structured songs with Contemporary melodies, attention-grabbing hooks in all sections of the song (both melodically and lyrically), and a radio-ready chorus. Be sure your production has modern Country instrumentation, with a Pop-leaning style and sound. Your radio-friendly vocal stylings should have plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity.

    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, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this use is (up to) $7,500, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor/Production Company placement where the show’s production company will likely get the Publisher’s share and you’ll get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties that would come from your retention of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. ***Do NOT submit songs that are already signed to any other Publishers! 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.

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY/POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a New, NON-Exclusive Music Library recently started by the CEO of another successful company. They’re eager to find modern, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of artists like (but not limited to) Jordan Davis, Lauren Alaina, Sam Hunt, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references for the general sound and vibe they’re on the hunt for:

    “Singles You Up” by Jordan Davis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hjqGN-9anA

    “Next Boyfriend” by Lauren Alaina: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3zhOoDKVvs

    “Body Like A Back Road” by Sam Hunt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mdh2p03cRfw

    Please submit well-structured, “A-Plus” Songs with fresh, catchy melodies, killer hooks, and clever lyric phrasing. Be sure your submissions have a Contemporary Country structure with genre-appropriate instrumentation. Adding a hint of Pop-leaning production would be welcomed by this company! Your well-polished vocals should have a radio-friendly sound and style, with plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be consistent with what you typically hear in the Country/Pop genre. While Country lyrics can often be visually descriptive, for this pitch you’re better off with songs that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. In other words, the less detail that could conflict with the dialogue in a TV Show or Film, the better! 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 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.

    EDGY ALT-COUNTRY ARTISTS or BANDS (Male, Female, or Duets) are needed by the President of a super successful Nashville-based Indie Record Label that makes hits and breaks new artists at a very high level.

    They’ve asked us to find them "New Artists who push the envelope, with KILLER SONGS, a really identifiable vocal sound, and the kind of cool that’s hard to describe, but you know it when you hear it.”

    This company frequently colors outside the lines, and they’re well-known for taking chances! Please don’t take that to mean that they’ll take mediocre material. They’re picky, but they really get behind the acts they sign!

    We’re not giving any reference artists or songs for this request because they’re looking for “What hasn’t been done yet, but will influence those who follow.” Because of the unusual nature of this Listing, we’re asking our A&R staff to judge this by asking these questions when they’ve finished listening: “Do I have a burning desire to listen to it again,” and “Is this totally different, but still commercial enough to get Country radio stations to play it?”

    Mid-to-Up-Tempo songs will work best. These guys are looking for Country’s next big sound, and the artist or band that can deliver it to the heartland. They’re not looking for straight up, Traditional Country artists. They’ll get excited if you’re combining Country with other genres like Rock, Indie Singer/Songwriter, Hip Hop, Pop, or Americana, and sticking big old hooks right in the middle of your unforgettable Chorus!

    The bar is high for this Listing. Remember, they’re looking for the Country Sound of TOMORROW, not yesterday! New, fresh sounds are the order of the day, here. Send your most cutting edge, yet commercially viable material!

    Because this is an artist pitch, you'd be wise to sell yourself, as well as your songs. If you’re selling out shows, getting tons of streams, or lighting up YouTube, make sure those numbers and stats are included your bio. Include a photo that makes you look as cool as your music sounds, and please make sure to include lyrics with your submission. Submit as many songs as you'd like, online or CD, and include a photo and bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis, with no full critiques and must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Thursday, May 31st, 2018. TAXI #Y180531CB

    COUNTRY SONGS with Female Vocals are needed for several (up-to) $3,500, Direct-to-Music Supervisor, NON-Exclusive placements in a Dramatic Cable TV Series. The Supervisor is looking for Mid-Tempo Songs in the ballpark of artists/bands that are similar (but not limited) to LeAnn Rimes, Rae Lynn, Trisha Yearwood, Dixie Chicks, etc., etc., etc.

    Please listen to the following references we got directly from the Music Supervisor to get in the general stylistic range of what he’s looking for:

    “How Do I Live” by LeAnn Rimes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Olo8gzgpC4

    “Love Triangle” by Rae Lynn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FUVdTEQxu8

    “She's In Love With The Boy” by Trisha Yearwood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUFObCZtGWQ

    “Cowboy Take Me Away” by Dixie Chicks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdkIJm65ytM

    NOTE: Songs may be re-recorded by the series talent for on camera scenes, or tracks may be used as source music in bars, concerts, or radio broadcasts.

    Please submit well-crafted songs with captivating melodies, compelling hooks, and a chorus that will create an emotional connection with the audience. Be sure your vocals are performed well, and with an honest Country delivery. The more authentic and believable your song feels and sounds, the better your chances are of landing this pitch!

    Note: The bar will be high for this request, as they want songs that sound better than what they’d typically get from some music libraries!

    Songs that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands will be appreciated by this Music Supervisor. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for each of these placements is (up-to) $3,500 per song, 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. No Publishing splits. 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. Include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by the Music Supervisor himself (time permitting), or a Screener selected by the Supervisor if his schedule gets too busy – Short critiques only.

    COUNTRY SONGS with LYRICS about “WORK” (Male or Female Vocals) are needed by a globally distributed Production Music Library with an awesome, 20-year history of great TV and Film placements. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic range of the following references:

    TAXI TIP: They’re looking for Songs that would work in TV Commercials that would appeal to Blue Collar folks who drive pickup trucks, appreciate a tasty beer after a hard day’s work, or wear rugged clothing, gloves, or boots that stand up to the rigors of tough, Blue Collar jobs. “Working Class Man” by Jimmy Barnes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erSJGrpfnOI

    “Hard Hat and a Hammer” By Alan Jackson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwQ5FKX02kg

    “Hard Workin' Man” by Brooks & Dunn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcXg8RrylII

    Alabama "forty hour week (for a livin') https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-G2J3RzURA

    Please send well-crafted Songs with great melodies, strong lyrics, and a super-catchy chorus. Your songs should have appropriate sounding instrumentation and production, with a solid vocal performance.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for possible lyric themes and topics. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: There is a virtually identical Listing asking for ROCK songs. Please be very carefully to submit your music to the correct Listing for the genre you are pitching!

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You’ll keep 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. 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.

    CURRENT-SOUNDING and ENVELOPE-PUSHING COUNTRY SONGS with MALE VOCALS are needed by a Nashville-based Independent Record Label that’s looking for material for their roster of incredible artists. This company hasn't run a TAXI Listing in about a year (but they’re back!), so this is a great opportunity to start a new relationship with an highly-respected, very successful Music Row Record Label that also has a Publishing company under its roof!

    They’re on the hunt for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could be considered Alt-Country to Mainstream Country. Acts like the Vandoliers, Luke Combs, Tucker Beathard, etc., are good examples of the types and range of what could appeal to this company that likes to take chances and find different material than others on the Row. Please listen to the following references to get a general idea of the type of material that could appeal to this company.

    "The Native" by Vandoliers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIQD8hP1gcE

    “One Number Away” by Luke Combs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct9BFr9XBaI

    "Rock On" by Tucker Beathard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CFJTXA2VnI

    These folks get to hear the very best that Nashville’s top songwriters create, but they often gravitate to material that barely sounds like “regular” Country. Not to say that they won’t sign a song that’s a straight up the middle HIT (in a modern, radio-ready context), but the CEO of this company loves to find super-cool material that other companies would be afraid to take a chance on. That doesn’t mean he’s willing to sign material that sounds like it “could” be Country. He likes testing the limits, as long as the material sounds like its got it roots firmly planted in Nashville, but with a “I don’t give a damn what you radio programmers think” attitude.

    Please be sure your recording quality (even for fairly stripped-down demos) is clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the company. 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 TAXI screener - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Tuesday, June 5th, 2018. TAXI #Y180605CS

Be sure your submissions have a well-crafted song structure with well-played, Country-based instrumentation. Your vocal performance should have plenty of confidence, personality, and Country authenticity.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something that you’d expect to hear on the Country Charts. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity will be appreciated by the company, as they are easier to place. Do not copy the referenced acts 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.

    This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, with a 50/50 split on applicable sync fees.

    CURRENT-SOUNDING COUNTRY SONGS with FEMALE VOCALS are needed by a Big Deal Nashville Music Publisher to pitch to several Top Recording Artists. They’re on the hunt for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with acts like (but not limited to), Miranda Lambert, Aubrie Sellers, Kacey Musgraves, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get a general idea of the style and overall vibe they need:

    "All Kinds of Kinds" by Miranda Lambert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02X8bX_EBv4

    "Butterflies" by Kacey Musgraves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM5Xa1FvNQQ

    Give them songs that sound like a smash hit, with modern-sounding Country production and a chorus that’s instantly engaging and totally unforgettable. You’d be wise to lean towards the hip, modern side of what would work on Country radio today. Please have a solid and super confident vocal performance to get the Publisher, and the artists they pitch to, excited about cutting your song.

    Note: The bar for this is very high. TAXI will have to be really selective in what we send this company!!

    Stripped-down demos or full productions are both okay to submit to this publisher! In either case, your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Publisher. Please submit as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics.

    NOTE: The bar will be high for this request, so pull out your best! They’re going to be looking for Instrumental Tracks that sound more like they belong on a hit record, and less like what might be found in a Production Music Library.

    Although the references above have vocals, this pitch is for Instrumental Tracks only! Please submit well-crafted A/C Pop Instrumental Tracks that could be perfect for a song that would run under the closing titles in a Major Hollywood Studio’s Feature Film. They would prefer that your Instrumentation is as simple as just piano, strings, and drums with just melodic chord progressions in the chorus section. Please make sure that your submissions do not have much melody already baked in. This team needs some room to add the icing on the cake in the form of their own topline!

    The deal will be negotiated between you and the Collaborators, but it’s pretty obvious that the deal is likely to be a co-write with whoever adds the topline.

    YOUTHFUL, INDIE SYNTH POP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Successful, high-end European Music Library for Feature Films, Trailers, and Advertising Campaigns. This company is fairly new to TAXI, and they’re launching another catalogue, so this is a killer opportunity to build a new relationship with an awesome company run by some very smart, hard-working people!

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a Dispatch Listing (TAXI # D180507YS), but the company didn’t get enough material and asked us to put this request out to our full list to see if we could find them more great material. If you submitted to TAXI # D180507YS, please submit different material this time around!

    They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that would fall in the general ballpark of the following references we got from them:

    “Power” by Little Mix ft. Stormzy: (They like the chorus section from 0:43 -1:18) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw8B1q1tKgs

    “Strangers” by Sigrid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIriwVhRPVA

    Although the references have vocals, they’re looking for Instrumentals only. Give them well-crafted Instrumentals that have a youthful, fresh, innovative vibe. Your submission should be rhythmically and melodically compelling. Utilize simple, catchy melodies and rhythmic drum beats that sound like songs you’d hear on the Indie Pop Charts. Please avoid submitting anything that's childish sounding, as they want young, cool, and hip for this request, and NOT whacky or quirky.

    Your submissions can be anywhere from 2 to 4-Minutes long. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger Endings are recommended. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    ORGANIC UNDERSCORE INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a very successful, Non-Exclusive Music Library. They’re searching for a bunch of Instrumentals in a variety of moods, styles, and tempos that would fall in the general stylistic ballpark of the references below:

    Theme from “To Kill a Mockingbird” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_t98LWNwUhI

    A Beautiful Mind Soundtrack – Main Theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr18I1PCECg

    IMPORTANT NOTE: These examples above were likely scored to picture and go through different moods, tempos, etc. because of scene changes. For the purpose of this request, you’d be very wise to stick to a singular motif and mood throughout your entire piece, so your submission is cohesive from top to bottom. If your piece goes through different moods, tempos, and styles, it’s going to be nearly impossible to use it in a scene.

    Give them well-crafted Instrumentals that effectively deliver a textured display of instruments that blend in and out of each other to create a unique piece of engaging Underscore. If you’re using any virtual instruments, they need to sound incredibly convincing! Please avoid submitting anything that sounds stiff, synthetic, or MIDI-driven. The more authentic sounding, the better! This is the perfect opportunity to show off your composition and arrangement skills, but you should still convey one emotion and mood from beginning to end. Having a developmental “arc” that makes your piece feel like it’s going somewhere is a good idea. Building as it goes is another way to say that ;-)

    Submissions should be at least 2 Minutes long, with Non-Faded endings and a natural decay/ring out. 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

    “Silence” by Marshmello ft. Khalid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk36ovCMsU8

    Quoting our Source: “The chorus is EVERYTHING, but please think of all sections as a hook to some degree. Topline should be catchy, current and something you’d want to hear as an Up-Tempo EDM song at a festival or club, even if the song originally starts out Down-Tempo, as you can hear in the references.”

    Please submit well-crafted songs that have a ton of mainstream appeal, with a fresh rhythmic, melodic, and lyrical approach. Songs should be well-structured, with plenty of “ear-candy” in all sections of the song, and have a great chorus. Ideally they would love to hear heartfelt lyrics that are a bit left of center that can go against a big EDM track.

    NOTE: They’re open to hearing either stripped-down or fully produced demos as long as the songs are excellent!

    Your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well.

Your songs should be well-crafted, with great melodies, catchy hooks, and a big anthemic, in-your-face chorus. Be sure your production and arrangement includes typical Punk/Pop band instrumentation. The more believable your overall performance sounds, the better your chances are of landing this pitch!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something that’s in line with what would typically be heard in the Pop Punk genre. Try avoiding specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase the probability of Music Supervisors being abel to use your song(s).

    Return to List of Categories

    HEARTFELT SOUL SONGS with Female Vocals are needed for an (up to) $25,000 placement by a NON-Exclusive Publisher that’s feeding material to the Music Supervisor of a Hit TV Series. They’re looking for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs (Recently Recorded, retro-sounding or Vintage Recordings can both work) that have the general style and vibe of the following references we got from the client:

    “Walk On By” by Dionne Warwick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijhL9Y7skQs

    “Back To Black” by Amy Winehouse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJAfLE39ZZ8

    Please submit well-crafted Songs with infectious melodies and an emotionally evocative chorus. Be sure your vocal performance has an awesomely soulful quality if you want to get your song to the top of the list for this pitch! Having a somewhat melancholic, sad-ish mood could help you for this request.

    They’re open to hearing both vintage-sounding and recently recorded Songs that sound retro, but please do NOT add sound effects like record scratches, clicks, and pops to give your submissions an old school feel.

    LYRIC Tip: Lyrically your song should relate to absence --- someone being gone, left, forgotten about, “walk-out-of-my-life” type-of-lyric --- but the lyric does not necessarily have to be romance related. 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.

    NOTE: The sync fee range we were quoted is between $10,000 - $25,000. However, our experience tells us that the sync fees in that range are probably based on them licensing a song from a well-known act through a big publisher like Sony or Universal. We think the sync fee could be lower for an unknown, independent act, or music they’d get from a “library.” We would “guesstimate” that the range for an unknown artist’s song would be in the $2,500 - $5,000 range. It could go higher, but we think it’s better to be conservative and hope that we’re wrong ;-) VERY wrong!

    This Publisher offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Writer’s share. They’ll get 50% of the sync fee and 100% of the Publisher’s Share.
