    ORIGINAL AMERICANA SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several $3,000, Direct-to-Music Supervisor, NON-Exclusive placements in an Action Adventure TV Series. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could stylistically fit on a playlist with these references, which we got directly from the Music Supervisor:

    “Hard Core Troubadour” by Steve Earle

    “Shakin', Shakin' Shakes” by Los Lobos

    “Knockin' On Your Screendoor” by John Prine

    “Catching On” by Son Volt

    Quoting the Music Supervisor: “I need songs with great arrangements, well-crafted lyrics, and top-notch performances. These tracks need to feel and sound like the real deal.”

    Give them well-crafted, roots-y songs that have an authentic Americana vibe and feel. Your submissions should have infectious rhythms with really strong musicianship and instrumentation that’s typically found in the Americana genre. Make sure your vocal performance is confident, and as compelling as the reference artists mentioned above.

    NOTE: Recently recorded songs or old-school-leaning material can both work for this request. Don’t go too far back, though! This isNOT a “Vintage” listing.

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be stylistically consistent with the references. These songs will likely be used as Background Source music, so lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity are recommended but not necessary.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists/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.

    The estimated license fee for each these placements is $3,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, please include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Time permitting; the Music Supervisor himself might be able to screen submissions for this request! No promises, but we’re hoping!! Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181127OA

    Christmas / Holiday

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL, EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT CHRISTMAS POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a 5-Star Publisher for National and Online Ad Campaigns. They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that have the general style and vibe of the following references they gave us:

    “If Everyday Was Christmas” by Cruz Beckham

    “Christmas The Whole Year Round” by Sabrina Carpenter

    “Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson

    Please submit original Songs (no covers, please) that capture the true essence of the holiday season with engaging melodies and a super memorable chorus. Little Christmas-y accents like bells, glockenspiel, or tubular bells could give your submission some added Christmas cheer, but they’re not absolutely necessary. If you do use them, we’ve typically found that it’s best not to overdo them!

    Lyrics should be consistent with themes commonly heard in current Christmas music. Non-Religious lyrics will probably work best in this context. Fun, festive, warm, family-ish themes are all good ideas. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: This Music Publisher’s syncs typically range up to $1,500 for digital/online ads and up to $10,000 -$30,000 for National TV Commercials.

    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 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 submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI A&R person selected by the client - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Thursday, November 15th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181115EC

    Country

    Return to List of Categories

    OUTLAW COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Successful, high-end Music Library that primarily pitches to Advertising Campaigns. This company has just started running Listings with TAXI, so it’s very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog. We think this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build a relationship with this company.

    They’re looking for authentic sounding, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic ballpark of the following references:

    "D.R.U.N.K." by Shooter Jennings

    "Country Heroes" by Hank Williams, Jr.

    “Outlaw State of Mind” by Chris Stapleton

    Please submit well-crafted Songs that reflect the rugged, gritty, spirit of the Outlaw Country style above, with authentic-sounding instrumentation. Your submissions should be interesting and story driven and convey an authentic, down-home Country vibe that would fit on a playlist with the references above. Be sure your vocal performance is believable, with an honest Country vocal delivery.

    NOTE: They’re not looking to hear songs in the style of "Pop" Country artists like Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum or Carrie Underwood. If you have songs that have a style, vibe, or lyrics that are in that ballpark, they won't work for this listing.

    LYRIC Tip: Lyrically they’re looking to hear stories about overcoming problems like (but not limited to) lost love, alcoholism, lack of alcohol, loneliness, fighting with your family, or even being so troubled you are not able to get along with your own dog. (Seriously, they said that!)

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal, with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your song used during that term, you can get your rights back. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. Since this company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener who was handpicked by the Music Library– Short critiques only.

    CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY POP SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a well-known Music Row Publisher for a Major Label Artist. They’re looking for Up-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of artists and Songs like (but not limited to) Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get a feel for the style and vibe they need:

    “Whiskey Glasses” by Morgan Wallen

    “She Got the Best of Me” by Luke Combs

    Please send them fun, well-structured songs with great energy, catchy melodies, and a visually descriptive, conversational lyric approach. Be sure your vocal performance is believable, with an honest Country delivery that will make this artist and publisher want to cut your song!

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be well-crafted, stripped-down demos or fuller productions, as long as what you send is competitive with what the client gets from writers on the Row.

    The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Publisher on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181127CC

    CHART WORTHY COUNTRY SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Music Row Publisher for a newly signed, up-and-coming Artist on a great Record Label. Please submit great Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to):

    “Workin' Overtime” by Lainey Wilson

    “My Church” by Maren Morris

    “We Should Be Friends” by Miranda Lambert

    Quoting The Publisher: "We need great songs with good energy and attitude. Think a modern Miranda Lambert."

    NOTE: Stripped-Down demos and full productions are both okay to submit, as long as your songs are great and your recording is clean, clear, and well-balanced!

    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, and make sure you include a lyric sheet.

    Folk

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL '40s, '50s, and ‘60s Style FOLK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by an EXCLUSIVE, A-List Music Library with a seriously long list of great TV, Film, and Commercial placements. They’re looking for authentic sounding Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could generally fit in the stylistic wheelhouse of the following references they gave us:

    “I Ain't Got No Home In This World Anymore” by Woody Guthrie

    “The Times They Are A Changin” by Bob Dylan

    “All You Fascists Bound To Lose” by Woody Guthrie

    “Hard Travelin” by Woody Guthrie

    Please send them original Songs that are reminiscent of the Folk songs being released in the '40s, '50s, & '60s. Your submission should have authentic-sounding instrumentation, well-performed vocals, and classic-sounding production that sounds like it was plucked straight from those eras.

    NOTE: Your submissions can be vintage masters recorded in the 1940s, 1950s, or 1960s; OR they can be songs recently recorded and just inspired by that era.

    LYRIC Tip: In traditional Folk Song fashion, they’re looking for songs with themes about Railroads, Traveling, Politics, and Unionization.

    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. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    This Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this pitch CANNOT be signed with any other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50. The Publisher will 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 to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short critiques only.

    INDIE FOLK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Successful, high-end Music Library that primarily pitches to Advertising Campaigns. This company has just started running Listings with TAXI, so it’s very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog. We think this is a killer opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build a relationship with this company.

    They’re looking for compelling Indie Folk Songs in All-Tempos that could be found on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to) Mumford & Sons, Angharad Drake, Bright Eyes, Bon Iver, Nadia Reid, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to references they gave us to get in the stylistic ballpark of what they need:

    “Baby” by Angharad Drake

    “First Day Of My Life” by Bright Eyes

    “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons

    "The Arrow and The Aim" by Nadia Reid

    “Holocene” by Bon Iver

    Please submit well-crafted songs that are lyrically and melodically engaging, and that have an authentic “Indie-style” vocal performance. Songs with typical Folk structure and that are primarily acoustic-based should work best. Something as simple as a guitar/vocal could actually work for this, as long as it’s done well! A small ensemble could also work. Group harmonies, foot stomps, and handclaps are all elements that could potentially fit nicely for this request.

    Lyric themes can vary but should be consistent with themes you’d typically hear in the Indie Folk genre. Because this company primarily pitches to advertising, it's a good bet that emotionally positive ideas, concepts, and lyrics will fare better than moody, sad, or downer lyrics. It's not impossible that a song with moody lyrics could get used, but in our opinion, it's much less likely! Lyrics that don’t mention specific names, places, dates, times, brands, or profanity will be appreciated, but are not an absolute requirement. Do NOT copy the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Genre appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed. In other words, organic recordings that don’t sound too slick or over-produced will probably work best for this request.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal, with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your song used during that term, you can get your rights back. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. Since this company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to any other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All
    submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener handpicked by the Music Library and must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018.  TAXI #S181120IF

    SONGS FROM FOLK ARTISTS and/or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Supervisor that’s placing music in a very popular competition-based TV Show franchise. They’re looking for great Songs in All-Tempos that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

    “Sign Me Up” by Matt Hartke

    “Empty” by The Sowing Season

    “Louise” by Big Brutus

    Give them well-crafted, current-sounding Indie Folk Songs with emotionally engaging melodies and great musicianship. Songs with an acoustic-based Folk structure and production should work best. Something as simple as a guitar/vocal could work for this, as long as it’s done well! A small ensemble could also work. Probably best to keep it simple!  Having a well performed and distinctive vocal sound/identity could also help you stand out.

    Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your songs more appealing, but they’re not absolutely necessary for this pitch. Do not copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed

    This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the Master License Fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Copyright and Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. We have it on good authority that somebody from the Music Supervision team might be screening these for TAXI, time permitting.

    Gospel

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL, TRADITIONAL SOUTHERN GOSPEL SONGS with Male, Female and/or mixed Choir Vocals are needed by a Five-Star Music Library with a great track record of placing music by TAXI members in Film, TV, and Commercials. They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs (Contemporary or Vintage Recordings can both work) in the general stylistic ballpark of the tunes referenced below:

    "Packin Up" by Clara Ward Singers

    “When I Rose This Morning” by Mississippi Mass Choir

    “The Old Ship Of Zion” by The Roberta Martin Singers

    “This is the Day” by Soul Children of Chicago

    “Glory to God in the Highest” by Soul Children of Chicago

    NOTE: Due to the nature of this genre, the recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality. Great live recordings can work as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. However, if you have some great Gospel choir studio recordings, it could give you an edge, assuming all the other elements are there!

    Please submit original, soulfully expressive Gospel songs that are deeply inspiring and emotionally engaging on all cylinders: rhythmically, vocally, melodically, and lyrically. Your song should have genre-appropriate production and instrumentation, with infectious grooves and foot-tapping rhythms. Group Choir Vocals, or Church Choirs that feature a main soloist, can both work as long as it has that big classic Gospel sound.

    NOTE: Recent recordings can work for this request, but if you’ve got any original vintage songs, this Music Library would LOVE to hear them!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should be something you’d expect to hear from a choir in the Gospel genre. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for feel, texture, tone, and vibe. Era-Appropriate Broadcast quality is needed.

    This Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this pitch CANNOT be signed with any other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50. The Publisher will 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 to pitch for this opportunity.

    REIMAGINED, DARK & MOODY TRAILER-STYLE COVERS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with tons of credits in HIT TV Shows!

    They are in search of SONGS in:
    • Any Genre
    • Any Tempo
    • From any Era

    Please take a listen to the following references to get a general idea of the type of material they need:

    “Paint It, Black" (The Rolling Stones Cover) by Ciara

    "Sweet Dreams" (Eurythmics Cover) by Marilyn Manson

    “Happy Together” (The Turtles Cover)  by Filter

    “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (Nirvana Cover) by Think Up Anger ft. Malia J 

    NOTE: Your covers can come from genres such as Rock, R&B, Country, Pop etc. as long as you keep things unique 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.  Remember, DARK and MOODY is the overarching vibe they need!

    Be sure to stay as close to the original lyrics as possible, so the root of the song is recognizable.  Having a compelling vocal performance with a strong, confident delivery could also help your song stand out for this pitch!  Otherwise, get creative and produce the song in a really cool and different way.

    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: An Intro that sets the tone, a Middle exposition, and a Final, big, huge, epic build.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Covers you submit for this pitch aren’t already signed to another catalog or any other libraries. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50 with the company. There are no performance royalties for cover versions of Public Domain material.

    Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181114CS

    ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS of NOVELTY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals that were recorded in 1990 or before are needed by an A-List Film and TV Music Publisher. They are NOT looking for songs that are exactly like the references below. If you’ve got era-accurate recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “The Electric Slide” by Marcia Griffiths

    “YMCA” by Village People

    Quoting The Publisher: “We are basically looking fun/goofy songs that people might associate with dances or parties.”

    We think they should have said weddings and Bar Mitzvahs! We always ending up doing the chicken dance at functions like that, but we never admit it ;-)

    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 in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period.

    TAXI Tip: You can submit old masters OR old demos for this pitch!  Getting the ERA right is key. Recordings that were made before 1990, only!

    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 buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront 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 Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques.

    COVER VERSIONS OF “THE PARTING GLASS” with Male or Female Vocals IN ALL GENRES, STYLES and TEMPOS are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with tons of credits in HIT TV Shows! Please listen to the following references to get a general idea of the range of styles (and others) that could work for this pitch:

    “The Parting Glass” by Ed Sheeran

    “The Parting Glass” by Dubliners

    “The Parting Glass” by The Wailin' Jennys

    NOTE: Your covers can be in commercially viable genres such as Pop, Rock, Adult Contemporary, Blues, Singer/Songwriter, R&B/Soul, Folk, Country, etc.

    Please submit innovative cover versions of “The Parting Glass” that creatively push the envelope a bit. You’d be smart to stay as close to the original lyrics as possible, so the root of the song is recognizable. Having a compelling vocal performance with a strong, confident delivery could also help your song stand out for this pitch! Otherwise, get creative and produce the song in a really cool and different way.

    TAXI Tip: You don’t have to use all of the song’s original melody, necessarily, 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.

    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 do NOT submit for this!

    Do NOT copy the referenced artist/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, so please be sure the Covers you submit for this pitch aren’t already signed to another catalog or any other libraries. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50 with the company. There are no performance royalties for cover versions of songs.

    Please submit as many versions of the Song as you’d like, either online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Sunday, November 25th, 2018. TAXI #Y181125PG

    FILM TRAILER-STYLE INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a very successful, Non-Exclusive Music Library. Please listen to the following references to get in the general stylistic wheelhouse of what they’re looking for:

    Aquaman - Official Trailer

    Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War - Official Trailer

    VENOM - Official Trailer

    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 that your submission is cohesive from top to bottom. If your piece goes through different moods and styles, it’s going to be nearly impossible to use it in a scene.

    Give them exceptional compositions that sound like a real-deal, Hollywood Theatrical Trailer consistent with the level of quality, style, and impact of current Blockbuster Trailers. They’re open to both Instrumentals that are Orchestral or Electronic, or a hybrid of the two. Instrumentation for this request can range from epic drum hits and orchestral instruments to electronic and sound design elements like leads, risers, and pads (Choral elements are also welcome for this request as well!). The structure of your Instrumental should follow a typical film trailer model, withthreedistinct acts that crescendo to a big, climactic, stinger-style ending.

    NOTE: Be sure any Orchestral instrumentation you use sounds very convincing, and not stiff, synthetic or obviously MIDI-driven.

    Your submissions can be anywhere from Two-to-Four 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.

    This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. 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 as many Songs as you’d like, online or on CD.

    R&B INSTRUMENTALS with an OLD SCHOOL 1990's sound and vibe are needed by a British Music Library with lots of placements. They are currently in catalog/genre expansion mode, and looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals with a similar vibe and sound as heard in these references:

    “Real Love” by Mary J Blige

    “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan

    “Creep” by TLC

    **Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch! **Please send Instrumentals that are reminiscent of the R&B music that was released in the 1990’s era. Your submissions should have a believable tone, feel, and vibe that generally reflects the style of the references mentioned above. Your submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded in the 1990s, or they can be recent recordings inspired by that era.

    Your submissions should be 2-4 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Your submissions should have top-notch production, with catchy ear candy and engaging rhythms. More Hip-Hop leaning Instrumental/Beats are okay, as long as they have a melody to them.

    NOTE: For this request, you’d be wise to submit Instrumentals that sound more like records someone could sing over, and less like typical “library” music!

    All submissions should be at least 3 minutes in length, with Non-Faded endings. Anything clocking in at less than three minutes will be returned. Sorry, we need to be pretty strict on this one! 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.

Your Instrumentals should be melodically and rhythmically engaging, with a tone and vibe that would fit right in with the examples above.

    TAXI Tip: Your Instrumentals do not have to be from old school 1990’s masters, but they should sound like they could be from that era, both sonically and stylistically. If your synth sounds are too modern, they might make your tracks sound too good ;-)

    ADULT CONTEMPORARY/INDIE POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals and a dreamy, moody vibe are needed for an (up to) $25,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement on a critically acclaimed TV Series.

    They’re on the hunt for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that have the general style and vibe of the following references we got from them!

    “Love” by Lana Del Rey

    “Carino” by The Marias:

    Please submit melodically and lyrically compelling songs that push the creative envelope with an authentic and believable “Indie” vibe. Your production and arrangement can vary, but should be in the general ballpark of the references above. Having a cool, “indie” styled vocal performance could help propel you to the top of the list for this pitch!

    Quoting the Source: “They're looking for songs that have an Indie/Alternative/AC style with a dreamy type vibe and production. They really want the song to have an Indie quality, that’s not necessarily commercial. The tone and mood of your song should be on the moodier or dark side of the spectrum.”

    Lyric themes can vary, but should match the general wheelhouse of the references above. Avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity is also a good idea. This pitch is more about vibe working with a specific scene than it is about the lyric.

    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. Genre appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed – in other words, Lo-Fi quality couldwork for this!

    NOTE: The sync fee we were quoted is $25,000, however, our experience tells us that the sync fee quoted for this placement is 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. 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, we’re just being cautious and conservative.

    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. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener who was handpicked by the Music Supervisor, and who will be judging based on his "gut" – Short critiques only.

    1970's-Style SOFT ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an (up to) $1,000, Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film. The Supervisor is on the hunt for Mid-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark and vibe of the following reference we got from the client:

    “Kiss You All Over” by Exile

    NOTE: The Music Supervisor is currently looking for a Song that would work well as a replacement for “Kiss You All Over” which is currently temped in. To be clear: They’re NOT looking for clones or sound-alikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No.

    TAXI Tip: This Music Supervisor used a bunch of songs from TAXI members in the last film she worked on :-)

    Please submit well-crafted songs with an overall vibe, sound, and style that captures the spirit of the 1970’s Soft Rock era. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding instrumentation, smooth and melodious vocals, and production that sounds like it was plucked straight from the era!

    NOTE: They’re open to hearing recently recorded Songs that sound retro, as well as authentic vintage masters recorded back in the day. Please do NOT add sound effects like record scratches, clicks, and pops to give your submissions an old school feel.

    Because these songs are likely needed for “background source placements” as characters dance together, the lyric themes aren’t critically important. You’d still be smart to stick to lyric themes about love and relationships.

    Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    The estimated license fee for this placement is between $500 - $1,000, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Somebody from the Music Supervisor’s team is slated to screen submissions for this, time permitting.

    Please submit well-crafted Electronic Dance songs that have catchy melodies, driving, ‘dance-y’ beats, and plenty of ear candy throughout. Your production should be fresh and modern, with current-sounding Electronic elements throughout and a chorus that really shines. Nothing dated, please! Be sure your vocal is well performed and has plenty of personality!

    Lyric themes can vary, but should fun and speak to how crazy the film is, overall (take our word for it!).

    DARK AND MOODY POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals 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 Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following references our client gave us:

    “Young And Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey

    Please submit rhythmically and melodically engaging Songs that have a somewhat dark, moody tone and vibe. Your submissions should include stand-out melodies, fresh lyrics, and a really infectious chorus. High production values and strong vocal performances are needed for this request, so you’d be wise to make sure your song is consistent with the level of quality and style of the reference acts.

    NOTE: Do not end your song with a Fade-Out! Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best.

    Although they didn’t specifically request them, songs with universal lyrics are typically the most easily placed, so please try to avoid specific details like names, dates, places, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    NOTE: They will need an instrumental-only version of your song as well, but not yet!

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 do NOT submit for this!

    “Psycho” by Post Malone ft. Ty Dolla $ign

    “Better Now” by Post Malone

    TAXI TIP: They're looking to hear songs that have a mellow energy and have hooks /choruses that are vocalized in the vein of Post Malone.

    Please send A+ Songs that have a Contemporary Pop structure and a current Urban appeal/flavor to them. Your song should have catchy melodies, a fresh, mellow beat, and an unforgettable chorus. You can sing or rap your submission, as long as your vocal performance is solid, confident, and has plenty of attitude.

    NOTE: Please do not fade out the song as your ending. Non-faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings required by this company.

    Although they didn’t specifically request them, songs with universal lyrics are typically the most easily placed, so please try to avoid specific details like names, dates, places, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for feel, texture, and tone. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    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. 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 do NOT submit for this!

    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.

    Punk

    Return to List of Categories

    ORIGINAL, POP PUNK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals Recorded BEFORE the year 2005 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing. If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, or other acts in the Pop Punk genre from 2005 or earlier, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

    “All The Small Things” by blink-182

    “My Friends Over You” by New Found Glory

    “Basket Case” by Green Day

    You can submit old masters OR old 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 in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period!

    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 upfront for the master rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share of the publishing and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization.

    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 buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront 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, and only 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 online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Monday, November 26th, 2018.  TAXI #Y181126PP

They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that have the general style and vibe of the following reference we got from the Music Supervisor:

    “For Once In My Life” by Stevie Wonder

    This Music Supervisor is currently looking for a Song that would work well in place of “For Once In My Life,” which is currently temped in and needs to be replaced.

    NOTE: Do NOT copy the reference! They are not looking for a Clone or Sound-Alike, but they would love to find something that has a comparable sound, vibe, and sonic approach.

    Give them well-crafted Songs that have a solid, soulful vocal performance on top of a great melody, and a rhythm track that has the timeless feel-good vibe of the reference. Include a chorus that rivals the uplifting  vibe of Stevie's classic! Your submissions can be actual vintage masters recorded back in the day, or they can be recently recorded songs. Picture the type of music you’d hear playing at the end of a wedding scene, and with a Motown twist!

    This song will likely be used as Background Source Music, however, they would still like the lyrics to be pro-love. NO breakup songs, please! Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity could give you some edge, but we don’t think they’re an absolute necessity.

    Please do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use the reference as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

    Lyric Tip: We know that this song will be used in a scene where a character has been accidentally shot, as characters realize that the gun was actually loaded. Ideally, they would love to find something that has a classic sound but that also matches the shocking and tragic tone of the situation. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands and profanity could give you some edge, but we don’t think they’re an absolute necessity.

    Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

    TAXI Tip: This Music Supervisor used a bunch of songs from TAXI members in the last film she worked on :-)

    They didn’t specify any lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. It just makes it easier for a Music Supervisor to use it because it won't conflict with the film's story or script! Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form.
