ALT-AMERICANA ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an established, super cool Indie Label that’s on the hunt for new acts to sign.

This Label is on the lookout for top-tier acts that would appeal to the fans of the following artists:

"Something American" by Jade Bird

"Survivor" by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

"Nightflyer" by Allison Russell

Please send them top-notch Alt-Americana Songs that showcase your unique style and sound and push the boundaries of the Americana genre. Your submissions should have entrancing melodies, solid arrangements, well-crafted lyrics, and captivating, well-performed vocals. Instrumentation in the general wheelhouse of the references will work best for this request. Please be sure that your production is polished and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and not dated sounding.

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.

You’d be wise to highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have in your bio. If you’re a new artist or band and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

Your recording quality needs 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 tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, September 25th, 2022. TAXI # S220925AM

UPTEMPO ELECTRONIC DANCE SONGS with ORGANIC ELEMENTS and Male or Female Vocals are needed by an extremely active Music Licensing Company with a very successful track record of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

Quoting the Company: "We’re looking for Songs that are a modern hybrid of orchestral/organic elements meets electronic dance. The tone should be [emotionally] upbeat and energizing, but not lighthearted or saccharine. Nothing edgy, angsty, or melancholy. We would also like a solid percussive element to it –some kind of beat that we can cut rapidly to without going all the way to something like a drum line. It would be great to have musical elements that give motor to the music like arpeggiating synth lines, chopped-up vocals used percussively, etc."

Many times TAXI clients come to us when they cannot find what they need and it may not already exist. In this case, this Company has provided that "'Free' by Louis The Child is a great example of the type of instrumentation and percussiveness that we’re after, but we need it to be more uptempo." Keeping that in mind, please use this reference as a guide to get you in the ballpark of the style, sound, and tone needed, but use their written request (above) as you craft your Songs to help you nail the exact needs of this request. Please submit songs with a higher BPM than the reference:

"Free" by Louis The Child feat. Drew Love

Please submit well-produced Electronic Dance Songs that seamlessly blend electronic elements like synths and beats with organic/orchestral instrumentation to create an overall percussive and positive vibe and sound. Your submissions should have catchy hooks, driving rhythms, impactful lyrical flows, expressive, well-performed vocals, and an overall uptempo feel. Instrumentation in the general ballpark of the reference will suit your submissions best – and having lots of percussive elements that give the editors beats to cut to are essential, as well. Please be sure your production and any virtual instruments you use are high-quality and cutting edge.

Lyrics should avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands and profanity. Please do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it 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.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal. This Music Licensing Company splits ALL sync fees 50/50 with you. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please do not send material for this pitch that has already been signed to other libraries or catalogs.

They're looking for vintage Mid-to-Up Tempo recordings that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"Paper Planes" by M.I.A.

"Jump Around" by House of Pain

"Take You There" by Sean Kingston

We understand that "Jump Around" is not from the 2000's, however it is nailing the spirit and vibe that this Company needs, so they asked us to include it in the references. For this request, please only submit Songs that were recorded between 2000 and 2010.

Send them well-produced, vintage 2000's Party Songs that could get the party started and the people dancing! Danceable rhythms, super catchy melodies, instantly memorable hooks, well-performed vocals, and plenty of fun energy are all needed for this request. Your submissions can range from Hip-Hop to Pop to about any other Party genre in between – just be sure they are in the ballpark of the references and other top songs from that era. Your production and any virtual sounds or samples you use should be polished, high-quality, and era-appropriate. If you have tracks that could have been heard playing from bars and clubs in the 2000's, this Company wants to hear them!

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

Make sure your Songs were actually recorded BETWEEN 2000 and 2010 (give or take a couple years), otherwise this company cannot use them! 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. This is a great 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. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT) on Tuesday, October 4th, 2022. TAXI # S221004VT

EMPOWERING, MOTIVATIONAL HIP-HOP and/or POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a Trailer Spot by an extremely active Music Licensing Company with a very successful track record of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

Quoting the Company: "We're looking for Motivational Hip-Hop and/or Pop Songs that sound like something athletes would listen to – this Trailer is for a Sports-related Movie. Ideally the Songs should have an emotional, slower middle section – something with a breakdown to help play over the stakes that will be portrayed in that section, and then finish triumphantly – but NOT cheesy. The lyrics can be about any of the following (or similar) themes: we're going to make it, we're coming back, we're the champions, anything about being an underdogWhat we don't want are Hip-Hop tracks that have the same emotionality all the way through."

Many times TAXI clients come to us when they cannot find what they need and it may not already exist. In this case, this Company has provided the following references that "were working, but for some reason aren't getting what we need 100% – whether it's lack of emotional dynamics, too expensive, or played out too much, etc." Keeping that in mind, please use these references as a guide to get you in the ballpark of the style, sound, and tone needed, but use their written request (above) as you craft your Songs to help you nail the exact needs of this request. For example, "Legendary" does not have the dynamic structure and slow middle section they need, but has a triumphant feel and on-theme lyrics; and "Hall of Fame" is lacking the Hip-Hop elements but has a strong dynamic structure. Blending different elements from the references with the particulars of the written brief will be key to getting this Company what they need!

WARNING: The references may include graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"Legendary" by Royce Da 5'9'' feat. Travis Barker

"We Own It" by 2 Chainz & Wiz Khalifa

"Hall of Fame" by The Script feat. will.i.am

Although one of the references does not have Hip-Hop beats, please submit Songs with Hip-Hop beats only for this request.

Please send well-produced, mid-to-up tempo Hip-Hop/Pop Songs with an overall empowering and motivational sound and feel. Your submissions should have vivid dynamic sections and a strong developmental arc that could work well for a Movie Trailer. Confident lyrics centered around the topics mentioned above, memorable hooks, slick Hip-Hop beats, and compelling, well-performed vocals are all needed, as well. Modern Hip-Hop instrumentation will suit your submissions best for this request – but incorporating some Pop elements could work, as well. Please be sure your arrangements are very dynamic and have the structure and feel mentioned above. Your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use need to be high-quality and not dated sounding.

Lyrics should avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands and profanity. 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. 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.

Send them modern Hip-Hop/R&B Songs with engaging melodies, soulful, well-performed vocals, and slick production that portray strong feelings of sadness.

Lots of SUPER SAD POP SONGS with Female or Male Vocals are needed by a hard-plugging Music Library with a GREAT track record of placements!

This Library is searching high and low for a range of Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of the following references:

"Older Than I Am" by Lennon Stella

"Glimpse of Us" by Joji

"You Might Not Like Her" by Maddie Zahm

"I Lost a Friend" by FINNEAS

Quoting the Library: "We are looking for songs with depth and emotion to them that move slowly, but with purpose, and are super-duper sad. We don’t mind if there is a slow build to a strong ending. Songs should address themes of hurt, secrets, conflict, fear of change, rebuilding, the search for self-identity, stress, fear, etc. We're looking for the ones that will break your heart and make you reach for Kleenex."

Send them well-produced Pop Songs that elicit a sense of heart-wrenching sadness and melancholy. Alluring melodies, memorable choruses, well-crafted lyrics centered around the themes mentioned above, super compelling arrangements, and emotional, well-performed vocals are all needed for this request. Your submissions can range on the Pop spectrum and incorporate elements of Electro Pop, Dance, Indie Rock/Pop, etc. – capturing the emotional gravitas is going to be key to nailing the needs of this pitch. Instrumentation in the general ballpark of the references (and others like them) will work best, and your arrangements can range from completely stripped-down, to more fleshed-out while building in intensity as the Song progresses. Please be sure your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and not dated sounding.

TAXI Tip: Keeping your lyrics on the simpler, more universal side could make your Songs more appealing to Music Supervisors and this company, in particular.

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

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with other Libraries or Catalogs.

"When We Were Young" by Adele

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

Please submit well-produced Pop/Adult Contemporary Instrumentals that capture the modern, yet timeless sound of artists like Adele and showcase your production skills in this genre. Your submissions should have top-notch organic instrumentation (think piano, acoustic guitar, live drum kits, etc.), excellent dynamic range, and solid sections that would easily allow for top-line melodies and lyrics to be written to them. Please be sure that your production is polished and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and sound like the real thing.

IMPORTANT: If this client loves what they hear, they could contact you to create further tracks in this genre because they're looking for talented, authentic producers with whom they can develop a relationship with, going beyond just one specific track.

Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Instrumentals 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.

Lots of SUPER SAD ACOUSTIC SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Female or Male Vocals are needed by a hard-plugging Music Library with a GREAT track record of placements!

This Library is on the hunt for several Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of the following references:

"When" by dodie 

"North" by Sleeping At Last

"Daisies" by Tanner Swift

Quoting the Library: "We are looking for songs with depth and emotion to them that move slowly, but with purpose, and are super-duper sad. We don’t mind if there is a slow build to a strong ending. Songs should address themes of hurt, secrets, conflict, fear of change, rebuilding, the search for self-identity, stress, fear, etc. We're looking for the ones that will break your heart and make you reach for Kleenex."

Please submit modern Singer/Songwriter Songs that evoke a deep sense of sadness and melancholy and tug at listeners' heartstrings. Your submissions should have captivating melodies, honest, well-crafted lyrics, compelling arrangements, and spellbinding, well-performed vocals. Acoustic instrumentation that's in the general ballpark of the references will suit your submissions best. Your arrangements can range from completely stripped-down, to more fleshed-out while building in intensity as the Song progresses. Whichever approach you choose, please be sure your production is polished and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and not dated sounding.

TAXI Tip: Keeping your lyrics on the simpler, more universal side could make your Songs more appealing to Music Supervisors and this company, in particular.

SINGER/SONGWRITER ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the Senior V.P. of A&R at a Major Record Label that's searching for Fresh, New Talent!

This A&R Executive is on the lookout for acts that would appeal to fans of the following references:

"You're Gonna Break My Heart Tonight" by Tom Odell

"Queen of Silver Linings" by Amy Allen

"Bright Star" by Anaïs Mitchell

Quoting the Executive's team: "We are looking for the next Neil Young/Joni Mitchell/Carole King type Singer/Songwriter with Indie appeal and crossover potential. Piano or guitar led tracks with strong melodies and hooks and incredible lyrics. We are NOT looking for Classic Rock or Vintage Singer/Songwriter – artists need to be doing a modern version of this genre."

Please submit well-written Singer/Songwriter Songs that capture an updated, modern take on the classic Singer/Songwriter stylings of artists like Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Carole King and showcase your unique sensibilities as an artist. Your submissions should have captivating melodies, honest, well-crafted lyrics, top-notch arrangements, and emotional, well-performed vocals. Live-recorded, acoustic-based instrumentation – led with a Piano or Acoustic Guitar – in the general ballpark of the references will work best for this request. Please avoid anything with modern electronic beats and elements, as well as anything that sounds too vintage or Classic Rock-styled. Please closely study the references to really understand the style and sound this Executive is after. Your production should be polished, and if you choose to use any virtual instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and not dated sounding, as well.

IMPORTANT: The Executive is interested in artists and bands that are the total package (great songs, superstar image, excellent production) and have gained some traction from actively working on their careers. Please detail (in your bio) what you are doing with your career. Include any impressive touring, fan base, sales, streaming, or social media figures. That said – if you’re a new artist or band just starting out and don’t have much of a story or track record, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer tracks to back it up, they still want to hear you!

TAXI Tip: We recommend submitting at least 2 Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

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 for texture and tone.

Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened by a TAXI A&R Team Member who has a strong relationship with the Executive. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, October 13th, 2022. TAXI # S221013SS
