Indie Folk/Americana instrumentation in the general ballpark of the references will work best, such as acoustic guitars, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, drums, etc. Please be sure that your productions and any virtual instruments or samples you use are of high quality and current-sounding. Compelling, well-performed vocals with an Indie edge could help get this Label excited about your music! Please do not send in traditional Country/Americana tracks or anything that doesn't have a distinct Indie sound.

This Label has specifically asked to hear at least 2 Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

NOTE: This Label is interested in Artists and Bands that have gained some traction from actively working on their careers. Please detail (in your bio) what you are doing with your career.

Lots of EMOTIONAL SONGS about LOSS (in a wide range of genres and styles) with Male or Female vocals are needed by an A-List Sync and Music Licensing Company with a very successful track record of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

Due to the wide-ranging nature of this request, we didn't include references, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful.

QUOTING THE COMPANY: "We need songs about loss, specifically related to survivors struggling to navigate grief and not always doing it with grace. Themes and lyrics need to hit on the multitude of emotions felt while trying to process and proceed. They also need to sound current and have been recorded within the last five years or so."

Please submit original Songs in a wide range of styles that deal with loss or grief, and the struggle of working through them. Submissions should be down-tempo and have somber melodies, meaningful choruses, solid arrangements, current-sounding productions, and well-performed vocals. Since this listing is open to a wide range of styles and genres, instrumentation may vary based on which direction you choose to go, as long as it is consistent and competitive with other Songs in your chosen style. Please be sure any virtual sounds or samples you use are high-quality. Modern and well-performed vocals that authentically convey the emotion behind your track and lyrics are needed.

NOTE: They're looking for popular/commercially viable genres that could work with the theme, including (but not limited to): Singer-Songwriter, Pop, Country, Folk, etc. We recommend that you avoid submitting anything in genres that don't naturally work with the theme or the down-tempo requirement.

Lyrics should be centrally focused on the theme listed above, and should avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity as well. Please do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for tempo, 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.

ORIGINAL, HIT-WORTHY COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a legendary Music Row Publisher for an up-and-coming Country Star working on his next release!

NOTE: This client is a CMA "Publisher of the Year" Award-winner who has had multiple million-selling singles and #1 hits with major artists, including many current cuts! This is a great opportunity to get your music heard by a highly respected Music Row Publisher!

This Publisher gave us these specific references AND NOTES to help you get in the general stylistic ballpark of what they are looking for:

"Bourbon Whiskey" by William Beckmann

"Smoke Rings In The Dark" by Gary Allan  - "Something like this could work with a more modern melody. No old-school lyrics, please. Nothing too dark will work, but minor keys are ok. Think a modern day Roy Orbison."

"Streets of Bakersfield" by Dwight Yoakam ft. Buck Owens  - "Something like this with a modern approach to the melody could work. We like the uptempo and positive sound, and the Latin influence could work as well."

IMPORTANT: This Publisher let us know that two different approaches could potentially work here. They are looking for 1) Songs that line up with the first two references sonically and stylistically, or 2) Songs that have a more uptempo and positive sound like the third reference. We think either approach could work, but please DO NOT copy or clone the references! Whichever approach you take, it needs to be modern and sound current.

Please submit original Country Songs that could be heard on a playlist with the references above! Your submissions should have memorable choruses, modern melodies, engaging rhythms, and well-crafted lyrics. Modern Country instrumentation that's in the general stylistic ballpark of the references will work best for this opportunity. Charismatic and well-executed Male vocal performances could be just what it takes to get this publisher excited about your Songs!

NOTE: This particular Artist is younger (think early 20s) and needs lyrics that reflect his age. Please do not send in lyrics that are too mature or dated-sounding.

Stripped-down demos and full productions are both okay to submit as long as your Songs are great, and your recordings are clean, clear, and well-balanced! 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.

The specific deal points will be negotiated on a Song-by-Song basis directly by the Publisher. Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD, and PLEASE include lyrics! Time permitting, the Publisher (who has been trained as a TAXI Screener) may screen some or all of the submissions!

INDIE ELECTRO-POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a “TV/Film sync-oriented” Record Label started by a Multi-Platinum Producer and a team of very successful industry veterans!

This Label is searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of the following references:

"Line Of Sight" by ODESZA ft. WYNNE & Mansionair

"Wild Things" by LAUREL

"Foreign Obstacles" by Mvlholland

Please submit well-crafted Indie Electro-Pop Songs with tons of energy, modern productions, and lots of commercial appeal!

Lyric Tip: While not specified, we think that clean lyrics will likely work best for this "TV/Film sync-oriented" opportunity. Avoiding references to specific brands, places, dates, times, and people, etc. is probably a good idea, as well.

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced so that it represents your Songs well. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide to get you in the stylistic ballpark of the overall texture and tone.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company has specifically asked that you only send unreleased Songs that aren't already commercially available.

REALLY IMPORTANT: This company is not just looking for a song or two from you. They’re looking to build professional, ongoing relationships with artists who are highly committed to working hard, and have the drive and ability to deliver a lot of super-strong material. Having the right type of image and “looking the part” could be icing on the cake, but first and foremost, it's about having great music and a strong work ethic!

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis between you and the Label. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit to this opportunity.

Please submit Country/Western Songs full of grit, and lyrics that match the themes listed above! Your submissions should have gravelly melodies, memorable choruses, engaging rhythms, and well-written lyrics. Instrumentation in the general wheelhouse of the references will work best for this opportunity, such as acoustic/slide guitar, banjo, harmonica, etc. We recommend using real instruments, but if you use any virtual instruments or samples, they should be high-quality, genre-appropriate, and realistic sounding. Authentic, and well-performed Male vocals are needed.

VERY IMPORTANT: This Company is NOT looking for modern Country Songs or anything with an overly-produced sound. Please pay extra close attention to the references to get a good take on their overall vibe, while taking extra care not to copy or clone them.

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.

EMOTIONALLY UPLIFTING INDIE FOLK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a highly successful “TV/Film sync-oriented” Record Label founded by a Big Deal Producer and a team of very successful industry veterans.

This Label is searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following references:

"On The Way" by Hollow Coves

"Strawberry Blond" by Mitski

"New Love" by Ziggy Alberts

Please submit well-crafted Indie Folk Songs with lots of emotionally upbeat energy and positive vibes! Your submissions should have memorable melodies, catchy choruses, uplifting motifs, solid arrangements, and well-crafted lyrics.

Well-performed vocals with an Indie Folk flair are needed.

Lyric Tip: While not specified by our client, we think that clean lyrics will likely work best for this "TV/Film sync-oriented" opportunity. Lyrics should also avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, profanity, etc. It makes it easier to get placements in multiple types of scenes and/or TV commercials.

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced so that it represents your Songs well. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide to get you in the stylistic ballpark, of the overall texture and tone.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company has specifically asked that you only send unreleased Songs that aren't already commercially available. If you've already released them on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., or if they’re already published or administered by CD Baby Pro, TuneCore, etc., please do not submit them.

REALLY IMPORTANT: This company is not just looking for a Song or two from you. They’re looking to build professional, ongoing relationships with artists who are highly committed to working hard, and have the drive and ability to deliver a lot of super strong material. Having the right type of image and “looking the part” could be the icing on the cake, but first and foremost, it's about having great music and a strong work ethic!

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis between you and the Label. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Include lyrics, a photo, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Lots of FUNKY HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an extremely busy Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

This Company is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general ballpark of these references:

"We Don't Stop" by Raphael Lake, Aaron Levy, & Wesley Smith

"Do What I Do" by William Davies

"Do It" by Spank 

Please submit Hip-Hop Songs with tons of energy, old-school Hip-Hop influences, and lots of funky vibes! Your submissions should have slick lyrical flows, memorable hooks, hard-hitting rhythms, funky motifs, and well-crafted lyrics. Instrumentation that falls in the general stylistic ballpark of the references and others like them will work best. Please make sure your productions and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and genre-appropriate. Confident, expressive, and well-performed vocals are key for this listing!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the reference tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. 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: Do NOT submit any tracks with spoken producer tags/watermarks, as they're not usable for film and TV placements.

IMPORTANT: Cleared sample libraries are okay to use, but any samples or loops you include in your pieces should be altered enough that they're distinguishable from the originals. Basically, if you Shazamed one of your tracks and another artist's song comes up, your music would definitely be disqualified by this Company.

ALSO IMPORTANT: Your Submissions can NOT be commercially released on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., OR be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive), including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby Pro, TuneCore, etc.

Hard to Classify/Specialty/Novelty

Lots of KLEZMER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an extremely busy Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing  #S240426KL, but the Company didn't find what they were looking for, so they asked us to try again. If you submitted to listing  # S240426KL, please submit different material this time around.

This A-List Company is on the lookout for Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Zol shoyn kumen di geule" by The Klezmatics

"Basarabye" by Itzhak Perlman

"Yidl Mitn Fidl" by Zalmen Mlotek ft. Eleanor Reissa

Please submit well-crafted Klezmer Songs with infectious rhythms, stellar musicianship, and tons of Klezmer charm (think Fiddler on the Roof-style). Your submissions should have authentic melodies, danceable rhythms, solid arrangements, and well-crafted lyrics in Yiddish. Instrumentation should be in the general stylistic wheelhouse of traditional Klezmer music, with instruments such as Accordion, Acoustic Guitar, Nylon String Guitar, Bass Guitar, Hand Percussion, Tambourine, Strings, Concert Flute, Cimbalom (Dulcimer), Orchestral Harp, Trumpet, Piano, and Drumset. Performances should feel authentic – complete with traditional Klezmer articulations (bending the notes, forcing the breath, breathing into the notes, legato, staccato, etc.).

If you're using any virtual instruments, be sure they're super high-quality and realistic sounding. This request is all about capturing an authentic Klezmer vibe and sound!

TAXI Tip: Your submissions don't need to be in one rigid tempo throughout. Historically, Klezmer music was meant for dancing, so tempos were fluid – often players slightly led or trailed the beat creating a lilting sound. Because of this, it'd actually probably be a good idea to let the rhythms of your pieces flow freely in a rubato style so they feel more authentic. The more your pieces feel like they're being performed by a real Klezmer band, the better!

Lyrics need to be in Yiddish and should avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the reference tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT: This Library really wants to find top-notch Composers – not just people who combine different samples or loops without altering them at all.  Cleared sample libraries are okay to use, but any samples or loops you include in your pieces should be altered enough that they're distinguishable from the originals. Basically, if you Shazamed one of your tracks and another artist's song comes up, your music would definitely be disqualified by this Company.

ALSO IMPORTANT: Your Submissions can NOT be commercially released on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., OR be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive), including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby Pro, TuneCore, etc.

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 other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

This Label is interested in artists and bands that are actively building their careers. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

TAXI Tip: We recommend that you submit at least THREE SONGS per submission, so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

Your productions and recording quality need to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

"Gangsta Gangsta" by NWA

"U.N.I.T.Y." by Queen Latifah

"Do For Love" by 2Pac

Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this request.

Please submit Hip-Hop Instrumentals that capture the sound and vibe of Old School Hip-Hop from the '80s and '90s. Your submissions should have hooky motifs, era-appropriate beats, and solid arrangements with plenty of dynamics, forward motion, and interest. Hip-Hop instrumentation in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the references that captures the retro style of the '80s and '90s will suit your submissions best. Any virtual instruments or samples you use need to be high-quality and era-appropriate.

Your Instrumentals should be at least 2 minutes long and no longer than 4 minutes, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will likely work best. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

RELAXING  AMBIENT INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a brand new record Label/Publisher, started by highly experienced industry veterans with long, successful histories. This is an amazing opportunity to get in on the ground floor with an exciting new Company!

This Company is searching for a range of sparse, relaxing Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Flying: Relaxing Sleep Music" by Soothing Relaxation

"Deep Sleep Music" by Yellow Brick Cinema

"Fall Into Sleep Instantly" by Weightless

NOTE: Even though the references may have rain, fountain, and babbling brook sound effects, the Label does NOT want them. No SFX, please!

Quoting the Company: "This music is needed for yoga studios, spas, wellness centers, as well as worldwide digital releases on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, Youtube, etc. It needs to be VERY simple, and VERY sparse while creating a blissful, relaxing, sleep-inducing, dream-like state for the listener.

We're NOT looking for amazing compositional chops. This is MUCH more about creating a feeling of peace and serenity, as if the listener is wrapped in a warm blanket and letting go of everything around them. Moods can range from blissful, optimistic, introspective (but not so much as to be depressing), wondrous, tranquil, etc.

We’re looking for composers who can demonstrate that they understand that the music serves the specific purpose of lulling the listener(s) into a calm, relaxed state. Musical elements, melodies, and/or production styles that show off the composer’s chops will likely take the intended listeners out of their trance-like state, thus defeating the use and purpose of the music."

Please submit minimalist Instrumentals with a relaxing, sleep-inducing vibe and a peaceful, relaxing sound. Your submissions should have one central motif with minimal—to—no—melodic movement, and tranquil, soft sounds. Instrumentation should be ambient and relaxing, such as flowing synth pads, soft piano, muted keys, etc. Please avoid things like bell tree glissandos, triangles, bells, etc., or other elements that could be jarring to tranced-out listeners. Any samples or virtual instruments you use need to be high-quality.

Please ensure that your submissions remain very SIMPLE, but still maintain a level of artistry and originality. Imagine what you would hear while being hypnotized!

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long, give or take. Natural-sounding, faded endings and/or non-faded endings are both okay for this request. Do NOT copy the reference tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe.

Please submit at least 2 tracks to show your range. If the company likes what they hear, they may contact you about doing a full album!

IMPORTANT: Your Submissions can NOT be commercially released on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., OR be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive), including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby Pro, TuneCore, etc.

This company is a Label/Publisher hybrid, and offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal. Music signed to this deal will be signed exclusively to the company (under a nom de plume), but the composer/artist is non-exclusive and is free to release other material under their own name by themselves or for any other company – just not the same music or the same nom de plume. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, May 25th, 2024. TAXI # S240525AM

"So What" by Miles Davis

"In Your Own Sweet Way" by Dave Brubeck

"Naima" by John Coltrane

Broadcast Quality should be era-appropriate. You can submit old masters — or even well-recorded/produced demos — for this request.

QUOTING THE LIBRARY: "We're looking for authentic period jazz recordings. Preferably 1950's but nothing later than 1962. I would prefer smaller jazz combos (Trio, Quartet, Quintet) but that's not mandatory. They should be unobtrusive, relaxed but not sad, and slower to mid-tempo.

Please submit original Jazz Instrumentals from the 1950s that have a relaxed and easy-going sound! Chilled-out melodies, easy-going motifs, genre-appropriate arrangements, and solid musicianship are all needed here. Jazz instrumentation that's generally consistent with the references and others like it will work best.

IMPORTANT: This company is looking for Instrumentals that were actually recorded during the 1950s, give or take a few years! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only if the sound quality is reasonably good. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal, so please be sure the Instrumentals you submit for this opportunity are NOT already signed with any other Companies or Catalogs.

Please be sure any virtual sounds or samples you use are high-quality and genre-appropriate.

Your Instrumentals should be at least 2 minutes long and no longer than 4 minutes, give or take. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form.

INSPIRING, ORGANIC-Based INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that has tons of credits in Big Films, Countless TV Shows, and Commercials!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S240403JR, but the Company didn't find what they were looking for, so they asked us to try again. If you submitted to listing #S240403JR, please submit different material this time around.

VERY Important Note: While no specific genre was mentioned by the company's CEO, if you listen to the examples linked below, you'll quickly understand exactly what he's hunting for!

This is a catalog you want to be in! Please listen to the following examples the Library's CEO gave us to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need:

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Company's CEO: "The beginning should feel intimate and personal – like it's the beginning of a process. Then your arrangement should move forward with more instrumentation to create a sense of making progress. Finally, your pieces should have a positive, inspiring conclusion."

Please submit well-crafted Instrumental Cues full of inspirational and positive undertones! Even though the Library is asking for different sections, they only want Cues that stick to one melodic idea throughout! Create the "sections" by layering instrumentation in and out as your tracks progress to create that sense of build and forward momentum. Pay extra close attention to how this is done in the references! Organic-based instrumentation that's in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the references will work best. Please be sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and realistic-sounding.

ADVICE DIRECTLY FROM THE LIBRARY'S CEO: "Many composers throw in way too many ideas and are not focused on ONE CENTRAL MOTIF: they try to keep things interesting by adding new harmonic lines and elements (melodies, even improvisations, etc) instead of focusing on the production and textures. What I'm basically looking for: obvious production music (in form and structure), that sounds like commercial music (production style)." Put simply, keep it SIMPLE! We know that other Libraries like to receive music with complementary A and B sections, but this Library is NOT one of them – stick with ONE CENTRAL MOTIF per submission, please!

All submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are required. 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.

NOTE: This company has a strong preference for composers who understand music licensing companies and how typical music library deals are structured. If that's not you, they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

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

Because this is an Exclusive deal, the music you submit for this pitch cannot already be signed with other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Please send as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, May 27th, 2024. TAXI # S240527GA

Andor - Official Trailer

Alien Invasion - Official Trailer

Your submissions should have dramatic motifs and three "acts" that build to a climactic crescendo and buttoned/stinger ending. Please craft your pieces around one central motif to create dynamics, interest, and forward motion by layering instrumentation in and out as the pieces progress. Instrumentation can vary, but staying in the general stylistic ballpark of the references will most likely work best. Please make sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality, modern, and sound very realistic if they are orchestral-based.

NOTE: Orchestral-based arrangements with a modern edge OR Hybrid/Orchestral arrangements with elements such as synths, bass growls, futuristic impacts, etc. could both potentially work. Just make sure there is plenty of dramatic, Sci-Fi energy!

Your submissions should be roughly 2.5 to 3 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form.

A Wide Range of MODERN INSTRUMENTAL JAZZ ARTISTS or BANDS are needed by a U.K.-based Record Label. They're on the prowl for some exciting acts to sign, and we'd love for you to be one of them!!

NOTEWORTHY: This Label signed a TAXI Member, and they found them through a listing just like this!!!

Take a listen to the references below to get an idea of what might get this amazing Record Label interested:

"Street Fighter Mas" by Kamasi Washington

"Keep On" by Alfa Mist

"24th & Lake" by Terrace Martin & Curly

Please send in well-crafted Jazz Instrumentals that showcase your one-of-a-kind sound and musical abilities! Your submissions should have excellent musicianship and genre-appropriate arrangements with plenty of forward motion and interest. A cutting-edge, modern sound and style is what this Label is looking for! Jazz instrumentation that's in the general stylistic ballpark of the references will work best. Live instrumentation is strongly recommended, but if you choose to use virtual instruments or samples, please make sure they are high-quality and not dated-sounding.

TAXI Tip: We know that Jazz is a pretty wide-ranging genre. This Company is definitely looking for cool, unique Artists to sign, but your submissions shouldn't be so "out there" and/or "abstract" that they have zero commercial appeal.

NOTE: This Label is interested in artists and bands that are actively building their careers. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Instrumentals to back it up, they still want to hear you!

We recommend that you submit at least THREE TRACKS per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

Your productions and recording quality need to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Tracks well. 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.

Please submit as many Instrumentals as you'd like, online or per CD, and please include a photo and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, June 3rd, 2024. TAXI # S240603ZZ

Lots of KLEZMER INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a hard-working Music Library with loads of killer placements in iconic TV shows, and lots of International representation!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing # S240428ZR, but the Company didn't find what they were looking for, so they asked us to try again. If you submitted to listing # S240428ZR, please submit different material this time around.

This Company is searching for a range of Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Heyser Bulgar" by Yxalag

"Freilach" by Klezmer Festival Band

"Klezmer Kaos" by Froggy Kaos

Please submit well-crafted Klezmer Instrumentals with infectious rhythms and tons of Klezmer charm (think Fiddler on the Roof-style). Your submissions should have authentic melodies, excellent musicianship, and solid arrangements with plenty of forward motion and interest. Instrumentation should be in the general stylistic wheelhouse of traditional Klezmer music, with instruments such as Accordion, Acoustic Guitar, Nylon String Guitar, Bass Guitar, Hand Percussion, Tambourine, Strings, Concert Flute, Cimbalom (Dulcimer), Orchestral Harp, Trumpet, Piano, and Drumset. Performances should feel authentic – complete with traditional Klezmer articulations (bending the notes, forcing the breath, breathing into the notes, legato, staccato, etc.).

If you're using any virtual instruments, be sure they're super high-quality and realistic sounding. This request is all about capturing an authentic Klezmer vibe and sound!

TAXI Tip: Your submissions don't need to be in one rigid tempo throughout. Historically, Klezmer music was meant for dancing, so tempos were fluid – often players slightly led or trailed the beat creating a lilting sound. Because of this, it'd actually probably be a good idea to let the rhythms of your pieces flow freely in a rubato style so they feel more authentic. The more your pieces feel like they're being performed by a real Klezmer band, the better!

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned endings are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the reference tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of ANY other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT: This Library really wants to find top-notch Composers – not just people who combine different samples or loops without altering them at all. Cleared sample libraries are okay to use, but any samples or loops you include in your pieces should be altered enough that they're distinguishable from the originals. Basically, if you Shazamed one of your tracks and another artist's song comes up, your music would definitely be disqualified by this Company.

ALSO IMPORTANT: Your Submissions can NOT be commercially released on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., OR be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive), including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby Pro, TuneCore, etc. Distribution agreements are fine. It's publishing, licensing, and publishing administration deals that are the problem.

RELAXING  AMBIENT INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a brand new record Label/Publisher, started by highly experienced industry veterans with long, successful histories. This is an amazing opportunity to get in on the ground floor with an exciting new Company!

This Company is searching for a range of sparse, relaxing Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Flying: Relaxing Sleep Music" by Soothing Relaxation

"Deep Sleep Music" by Yellow Brick Cinema

"Fall Into Sleep Instantly" by Weightless

NOTE: Even though the references may have rain, fountain, and babbling brook sound effects, the Label does NOT want them. No SFX, please!

Quoting the Company: "This music is needed for yoga studios, spas, wellness centers, as well as worldwide digital releases on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, Youtube, etc. It needs to be VERY simple, and VERY sparse while creating a blissful, relaxing, sleep-inducing, dream-like state for the listener.

We're NOT looking for amazing compositional chops. This is MUCH more about creating a feeling of peace and serenity, as if the listener is wrapped in a warm blanket and letting go of everything around them. Moods can range from blissful, optimistic, introspective (but not so much as to be depressing), wondrous, tranquil, etc.

We’re looking for composers who can demonstrate that they understand that the music serves the specific purpose of lulling the listener(s) into a calm, relaxed state. Musical elements, melodies, and/or production styles that show off the composer’s chops will likely take the intended listeners out of their trance-like state, thus defeating the use and purpose of the music."

Please submit minimalist Instrumentals with a relaxing, sleep-inducing vibe and a peaceful, relaxing sound. Your submissions should have one central motif with minimal—to—no—melodic movement, and tranquil, soft sounds. Instrumentation should be ambient and relaxing, such as flowing synth pads, soft piano, muted keys, etc. Please avoid things like bell tree glissandos, triangles, bells, etc., or other elements that could be jarring to tranced-out listeners. Any samples or virtual instruments you use need to be high-quality.

Please ensure that your submissions remain very SIMPLE, but still maintain a level of artistry and originality. Imagine what you would hear while being hypnotized!

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long, give or take. Natural-sounding, faded endings and/or non-faded endings are both okay for this request. Do NOT copy the reference tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe.

Please submit at least 2 tracks to show your range. If the company likes what they hear, they may contact you about doing a full album!

IMPORTANT: Your Submissions can NOT be commercially released on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., OR be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive), including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby Pro, TuneCore, etc.

This company is a Label/Publisher hybrid, and offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal. Music signed to this deal will be signed exclusively to the company (under a nom de plume), but the composer/artist is non-exclusive and is free to release other material under their own name by themselves or for any other company – just not the same music or the same nom de plume. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, May 25th, 2024. TAXI # S240525AM

Due to the wide-ranging nature of this request, we didn't include references, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful.

QUOTING THE COMPANY: "We need songs about loss, specifically related to survivors struggling to navigate grief and not always doing it with grace.

Please do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form.

Lots of EMOTIONAL SONGS about LOSS (in a wide range of genres and styles) with Male or Female vocals are needed by an A-List Sync and Music Licensing Company with a very successful track record of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

Due to the wide-ranging nature of this request, we didn't include references, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful.

QUOTING THE COMPANY: "We need songs about loss, specifically related to survivors struggling to navigate grief and not always doing it with grace.

Lyrics should be centrally focused on the theme listed above, and should avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity as well. Please do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for tempo, 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.

Songs can be in languages as wide-ranging as Korean, Swahili, Arabic, Amharic, French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, Russian, Hindi, Japanese, etc. Just no English, please! Naturally, more common languages will be more appealing to the client.

Your submissions should have engaging, well-crafted lyrics, memorable choruses, and lots of genuine, emotional energy that could work well for placements in TV and Film.

Organic, acoustic-based instrumentation like acoustic guitar, piano, ukulele, etc. will suit your submissions best. We highly recommend using real instrumentation, but if you choose to use any virtual sounds or instruments, please be sure they are extremely high-quality and virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.

Lyrics should avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Compelling, well-performed vocals are key for this listing!

Lyrics that don’t have references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity could make your Songs more useable for sync placements. Please 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. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Instrumentation in the general stylistic ballpark of the references (such as guitar, banjo, mandolin, light drums, etc) will work best. Compelling and well-performed vocals are key!

This Label isn't looking for polished, perfect productions, as much as they're looking for super fresh, marketable Artists with great, chart-worthy Songs! Your productions and recording quality still need to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well.

IMPORTANT: This Label is interested in artists and bands that are actively building their careers. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

TAXI Tip: We recommend that you submit at least THREE SONGS per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

CONTEMPORARY SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS in a FOREIGN LANGUAGE with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a U.K.-based Music & Media Company that's constantly landing placements in TV Shows, Film, and other Media.

We purposely avoided putting references in this request as we felt they could be more misleading or limiting than helpful.

Songs can be in languages as wide-ranging as Korean, Swahili, Arabic, Amharic, French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, Russian, Hindi, Japanese, etc. Just no English, please! Naturally, more common languages will be more appealing to the client. Obscure languages from lesser-known countries could be less appealing to the Company because there will likely be less demand for those.

Please submit well-crafted Singer/Songwriter Songs with captivating melodies, well-performed vocals, and plenty of mainstream appeal. Your submissions should have engaging, well-crafted lyrics, memorable choruses, and lots of genuine, emotional energy that could work well for placements in TV and Film. Your arrangements can range from stripped-down productions to more filled-out ideas. Organic, acoustic-based instrumentation like acoustic guitar, piano, ukulele, etc. will suit your submissions best. We highly recommend using real instrumentation, but if you choose to use any virtual sounds or instruments, please be sure they are extremely high-quality and virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.

Please submit current-sounding Songs with lots of mainstream appeal that could work for placements in Film and TV.

Lots of KLEZMER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an extremely busy Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing  #S240426KL, but the Company didn't find what they were looking for, so they asked us to try again. If you submitted to listing  # S240426KL, please submit different material this time around.

This A-List Company is on the lookout for Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Zol shoyn kumen di geule" by The Klezmatics

"Basarabye" by Itzhak Perlman

"Yidl Mitn Fidl" by Zalmen Mlotek ft. Eleanor Reissa

Please submit well-crafted Klezmer Songs with infectious rhythms, stellar musicianship, and tons of Klezmer charm (think Fiddler on the Roof-style). Your submissions should have authentic melodies, danceable rhythms, solid arrangements, and well-crafted lyrics in Yiddish. Instrumentation should be in the general stylistic wheelhouse of traditional Klezmer music, with instruments such as Accordion, Acoustic Guitar, Nylon String Guitar, Bass Guitar, Hand Percussion, Tambourine, Strings, Concert Flute, Cimbalom (Dulcimer), Orchestral Harp, Trumpet, Piano, and Drumset. Performances should feel authentic – complete with traditional Klezmer articulations (bending the notes, forcing the breath, breathing into the notes, legato, staccato, etc.).

If you're using any virtual instruments, be sure they're super high-quality and realistic sounding. This request is all about capturing an authentic Klezmer vibe and sound!

TAXI Tip: Your submissions don't need to be in one rigid tempo throughout. Historically, Klezmer music was meant for dancing, so tempos were fluid – often players slightly led or trailed the beat creating a lilting sound. Because of this, it'd actually probably be a good idea to let the rhythms of your pieces flow freely in a rubato style so they feel more authentic. The more your pieces feel like they're being performed by a real Klezmer band, the better!

Lyrics need to be in Yiddish and should avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the reference tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT: This Library really wants to find top-notch Composers – not just people who combine different samples or loops without altering them at all.  Cleared sample libraries are okay to use, but any samples or loops you include in your pieces should be altered enough that they're distinguishable from the originals. Basically, if you Shazamed one of your tracks and another artist's song comes up, your music would definitely be disqualified by this Company.

ALSO IMPORTANT: Your Submissions can NOT be commercially released on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., OR be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive), including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby Pro, TuneCore, etc.

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 other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, June 6th, 2024. TAXI # S240606MR
