Adult Contemporary

Return to List of Categories

MODERN ADULT CONTEMPORARY BALLADS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by an EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company with lots of great placements in Film, TV, and other Media.

They’re on the hunt for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of the following references:

"Perfect Duet" by Ed Sheeran & Beyoncé

"All of Me" by John Legend

"Shallow" by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper

"Someone You Loved" by Lewis Capaldi

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company offers an Exclusive deal, and is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Please submit well-produced Adult Contemporary Ballads that could tug at listeners' heartstrings. Your submissions should have expressive melodies, inviting rhythms, and unforgettable choruses. We think both stripped-down performances and more filled-out arrangements could work for this request. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production should be super polished and high-quality. Any and all software sounds or samples you use need to be state-of-the-art (nothing dated, obviously MIDI-driven, or overly quantized, please!). Passionate, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

Lyrics that avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably make them happiest. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You'll split all upfront sync fees 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 Composition rights. Since this is an Exclusive deal, please be sure your material is NOT already signed with any 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 (PST) on Monday, December 7th, 2020.  TAXI # S201207AC

Americana

Return to List of Categories

A Bunch of MODERN AMERICANA SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a top-tier Music Library for several (up to) $1,000 placements on a Netflix show!

They’re searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic range of the following references:

"Heartache After Heartache" by Thomas Csorba

"Life of Sin" by Sturgill Simpson

"Good Chunk of Change" by Muscadine Bloodline feat. Brett Cobb & Adam Hood

Please submit current-sounding Americana Songs with lots of small-town charm. Your submissions should have memorable melodies, great rhythms, and excellent musicianship. Well-crafted lyrics paired with honest, well-performed vocals are a must, as well. We think typical, organic-based Americana instrumentation will work best. Just be sure that your production is on the same general playing field as the references and others of that ilk!

TAXI Tip: If you decide to use any software instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and modern. Authenticity is key for nailing this request, so the more your music sounds like it's being performed by a real Americana band playing real instruments, the better.

Please avoid the use of specific names, dates, times, places, and brands in your lyrics, if you’d like to increase your chances of nailing this request. 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 Company offers both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to do an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material for this pitch that you've already signed with other libraries or publishers. 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 per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020.  TAXI # S201201AM

Blues

Return to List of Categories

Several SWAMPY BLUES SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a GREAT Music Licensing Company with International Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

The client is looking for a whole bunch of Songs in All Tempos that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following examples:

"Hoochie Coochie Man" by Muddy Waters

"The Gypsy Woman Told Me" by John Primer & Bob Corritore

"Come and Take It" by John Németh

"The Thrill Is Gone" by B.B. King

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company has a high bar and they tend to gravitate toward music that “sounds like releasable commercial Songs” rather than material that sounds like it came from a "typical music library." Also, this company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked with libraries and licensing companies in the past, and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Send them recently-recorded Songs that capture the heart and soul of the Swampy Southern Blues genre. Your submissions should have solid rhythms, soulful melodies, and superb musicianship. It'd be a good idea to stick with traditional Blues instrumentation, arrangements, and rhythms. They're looking for strictly Blues Songs, so avoid submitting anything that has a Rock or Country tilt to it. Honest, bluesy lyrics and excellent vocals could be the cherry on top for this request.

TAXI Tip: If you decide to use any software instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and convincing. Authenticity is key for nailing this request, so the more your music sounds like it's being performed by real musicians playing real instruments, the better.

Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands could give you an added edge. Do not copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. 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 to submit. 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 (PST) on Tuesday, December 15th, 2020.  TAXI # S201215SW

"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" by Jewel

"Rock-A-Bye Baby" by The Little Series

"Hush, Little Baby" by Nick Lachey

"Brahm's Lullaby" by Celine Dion

Please submit well-produced Cover versions of Public Domain Lullabies with a soothing vibe and sound. Both simple, stripped-down performances and more filled-out productions could work, here. Just be sure that your production and any software sound or samples you use are high-quality. It'd be wise to stick as close to the songs' original melodies as possible so they're familiar to listeners.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please double check to make sure the Covers you submit are truly Public Domain!

Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT! Per our client, your Submissions must NOT be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive) including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby, TuneCore, DistroKid, etc.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this request CANNOT be signed with other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. 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 and critiqued by TAXI.

Country

Return to List of Categories

Lots of AUTHENTIC-Sounding COUNTRY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a U.K. Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

The client is looking for a whole bunch of Songs in All Tempos that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following examples:

"Forever After All" by Luke Combs

"Next Girl" by Carly Pearce

"Home" by Dierks Bentley

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company has a high bar and they tend to gravitate toward music that “sounds like releasable commercial Songs” rather than material that sounds like it came from a "typical music library." Also, this company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked with libraries and licensing companies in the past, and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Give them well-produced Songs with an authentic, honest Country sound and vibe. Your submissions should have great melodies, instantly memorable choruses, and inviting rhythms. They want to hear material with mainstream Country appeal, but they do NOT want to hear anything that leans heavily towards the Pop side of Country. It would be wise to stick with traditional Country instrumentation and avoid submitting anything with Pop beats or production elements. Top your submissions off with some well-executed vocals with a healthy amount of Country charm, and you could have what this company is looking for!

TAXI Tip: If you decide to use any software instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and modern. Authenticity is key for nailing this request, so the more your music sounds like it's being performed by real musicians playing real instruments, the better.

Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands could give you an added edge. 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 other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. 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 to submit. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

"Run Away from it All" by Blackberry Smoke

"Die Rockin'" by Whiskey Myers

"Arkansas" by Chris Stapleton

Please submit top-notch Country Rock Songs with straight-forward rhythms, great melodies, excellent musicianship, and tons of Country charm. It'd be wise to stick with typical Country Rock-band instrumentation and avoid submitting anything with Pop-influenced elements or beats for this request. Your production should be on the same general playing field as the references. If your Songs could feel at home blasting from a jukebox in a small-town bar with a country feel, you could have what this company is looking for!

TAXI Tip: If you decide to use any software instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and modern. Authenticity is key for nailing this request, so the more your music sounds like it's being performed by a real Country Rock band playing real instruments, the better.

Return to List of Categories

Several TRADITIONAL-Sounding GOSPEL/SPIRITUAL SONGS with Male, Female, or Choir Vocals are needed by an extremely busy Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

NOTE: Both Original Songs or Public Domain Covers are okay to submit for this pitch!

"Are You Ready for a Miracle?" by Pattie LaBelle

"Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen" by Mahalia Jackson

"Soon and Very Soon" by Andraé Crouch & The Disciples

"Nothing Has Been The Same" by Shirley Caesar

Please submit recently-recorded, original or Public Domain Gospel/Spiritual Songs that have a Traditional-leaning style and sound. Your submissions should have moving melodies, singable choruses, engaging rhythms, and a hefty amount of Gospel fervor. Stripped-down performances or more filled-out arrangements could both work for this pitch. Just be sure that the instrumentation you use and your production feel authentically Gospel. If you're using any virtual instruments or samples, they need to sound high-quality and not stiff. Well-executed, passionate solo or ensemble vocals could help you seal the deal!

If you're submitting Covers, please double-check to make sure that they are truly in the Public Domain!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Indie/Alternative

Return to List of Categories

Lots of INDIE/ALTERNATIVE SONGS with a Hip THROWBACK Vibe and Male or Female Vocals are needed by an extremely busy Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

They’re on the hunt for a bunch of Songs in All Tempos that are in the general stylistic ballpark of these references we got directly from our client:

"Off My Mind" by Hazel English

"Little Uneasy" by Fazerdaze

"Time (You and I)" by Khruangbin

"Dreams Tonite" by Alvvays

Please submit really cool, eclectic Songs with a retro/throwback-influenced vibe and sound. Your submissions should have inviting rhythms, memorable melodies, well-crafted lyrics, and lots of Indie/Alternative charm. You'd be wise to stick with generally similar instrumentation to the references: organic-sounding drums, jangly guitars, dreamy synths, etc. If you're planning on using any software instruments, sounds, or samples, they need to be fresh and high-quality. Well-performed, almost ethereal vocals could help you seal the deal!

TAXI Tip: Having a retro/throwback influence does NOT mean that your Songs should sound dated. Marry retro-inspired rhythms, sounds, and elements with current-sounding production techniques, and you could be on the right track!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

"Southern Sun" by Boy & Bear

"Is A Light Ever Lost" by Dustin Tebbutt

"Zigzagging Toward the Light" by Conor Oberst

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company has a high bar and they tend to gravitate toward music that “sounds like releasable commercial Songs” rather than material that sounds like it came from a "typical music library." Also, this company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked with libraries and licensing companies in the past, and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Please submit top-notch, modern Folk Rock Songs with a noticeably Indie sound and style. Your submissions should have inviting rhythms, memorable melodies, and excellent musicianship. Be sure that your production is generally competitive with the references and your vocals are well-performed and have a healthy dose of Indie Folk Rock charm.

CHART-WORTHY INDIE POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by an A-list Record Producer for a newly signed, up-and-coming Artist who’s currently working on her debut album!

This Record Producer is looking for Songs in All Tempos that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

“Love You For A Long Time” by Maggie Rogers

“Forget About It” by King Princess ft. Banoffee

“Everything Goes (WOW)” by BROODS

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing  #S200717GM, but the Client wants to hear MORE material. If you submitted to listing  #S200717GM, please send different material this time around.

Please send Indie Pop songs that are in the same lane with the contemporary style of the referenced artists above. Your submissions should have great melodies, well-written lyrics, and unforgettable choruses. Be sure to have a solid Pop Song structure and use modern-sounding instrumentation. You’d be wise to deliver strong vocal performances to help sell the Producer and the Artist on cutting your Songs.

This producer is happy to listen to either stripped-down or fully produced demos! That said, your Songs have to be super strong and sound like hits in the making, especially if you’re submitting stripped-down demos!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This producer has specifically asked that you ONLY send UNRELEASED Songs that aren't already commercially available. If you've already commercially released them, then they can't use them! This includes releases on Spotify, CD Baby, etc.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Tuesday, December 8th, 2020.  TAXI # S201208CW

MODERN INDIE POP ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Film/TV Music Publishing Company.

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S201012NE, but the Publishing Company didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S201012NE, please send different material this time around.

NOTE: This Company is NOT looking for “typical library music.” They’re looking for music that's from real, working artists or bands. They want artists that are not working with a ton of other companies at the moment so they can work closely with them.

Please listen to the following references (we got directly from them) to get an idea of what might get this Company interested in your work:

"Strangers" by Sigrid

"Peach" by Broods

"everything i wanted" by Billie Eilish

Please submit Indie Pop Songs that have a cool "Indie" aesthetic and state-of-the-art production style. Your submissions should have innovative melodies, catchy choruses, and great lyrics. Any electronic instrumentation or elements you use must sound modern and current (not dated). Having a distinct Indie vocal sound and identity could put the cherry on top!

Note: This Company is looking for authentic artists that they can pitch to sync opportunities, so they’re going to want to know more about you in the form of a bio. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an authentic Artist or Band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to do an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material that’s already signed with any other libraries or publishers, and that includes "monetization deals" you might have signed with online distributors – read the fine print. You must own or control your Masters and Compositions to submit to this opportunity. 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 and critiqued by a TAXI A&R Screener who works closely with the Company. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, December 16th, 2020.  TAXI # S201216PA

CURRENT-Sounding INDIE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company with lots of great placements in Film, TV, and other Media.

They’re on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of the following references:

"crawling in my skin" by Soccer Mommy

"Wasted on Me" by Spacey Jane

"At It Again" by Slow Pulp

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company offers an Exclusive deal, and is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Send them super cool Indie Rock Songs with solid rhythms, great melodies, and top-notch vocals with a distinct Indie sound and style. Typical Rock-band instrumentation will suit your submissions well, but some modern ear candy sprinkled in here and there couldn't hurt. Be sure that your production and any software sounds and samples you use are high-quality and cutting-edge (nothing dated, please!) If you could imagine your songs on a cool teenager's Spotify playlist, you could be onto something!

Lyrics that avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably make them happiest. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Several SOLO CELLO COVERS of PUBLIC DOMAIN CLASSICAL PIECES are needed by a very successful EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company. This company has a history of lots and lots of really AWESOME placements!

They’re looking for Solo Cello Covers of Classical pieces from all Classical Eras (Baroque, Romantic, Classical, etc.) in All Tempos that would fall within the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

"Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, Prélude" by Bach performed by Yo-Yo Ma

"Suite No. 1 in G Major BWV 1007.: II. Allemande" by Bach performed by Jean-Guihen Queyras

Please submit recently-recorded Cover versions of Public Domain Classical pieces that feature cello as their only instrument. Be sure your submissions sound like they're being performed by a real musician and are well-played and articulated. You can submit Covers that were originally written for solo cello or cello versions of other recognizable Classical pieces, but you’d be wise to stick to the original melodies so your pieces are easily recognizable.

TAXI Tip: Having authentic-sounding performances is the key to nailing this request! We don’t recommend using virtual cello samples for this pitch unless you are extremely masterful and your virtual instruments sound indistinguishable from the real thing. Your submissions should sound like they're being performed by a real classical cellist playing a real cello.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please double check to make sure the Covers you submit are truly Public Domain!

Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT! Per our client, your Submissions must NOT be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive) including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby, TuneCore, DistroKid, etc.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this request CANNOT be signed with other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. You must own or control your Master to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

UPLIFTING, INSPIRING CORPORATE INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal and has tons of credits in Big Films, Countless TV Shows, and Commercials!

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

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Library: "We’re looking for cues that have a clear corporate mood: engaging, aspiring, warm, positive, with gentle momentum. But we don’t want 'standard, middle-of-the-road corporate.' We’re looking for Cues that add organic sounds to the equation, blending them creatively and intelligently with more modern, corporate-sounding elements while keeping the engaging, warm, aspirational mood. Here's a range of moods we're looking for: positive, engaging, optimistic, motivational, moving forward, making progress – but stopping short of victory; this would be too intense for this brief. The references should help you hear what we’re after."

Send them top-notch Corporate Instrumental Cues with an inspiring sound and style. Craft your submissions around a singular mood, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. You'd be wise to stick with simpler ideas without any super prominent melodic leads so your Cues won't be distracting under dialog. Be sure that your production and any software sounds or samples you use are polished and fresh as nothing dated or low-quality will work, here.

Another Production Tip from the Library: "We know it's tempting to add instrument upon instrument to make your tracks more dense, but avoid submitting anything with a lot of 'filler.' Instead, work with fewer elements, each one carefully curated, audible, and impactful. Every part of your Cues should support the foundation/key element of the arrangement rather than blurring the focus." Remember, simple is often better!

All submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Good edit points and 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 is NOT interested in composers that turn in 1 or 2 tracks every couple of months, they want composers who have experience writing full albums in this genre. They're only interested in signing material from composers who have worked with music libraries and music licensing companies in the past, and understand how those deals work. If you don't understand the drill on library deals, 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 Composition rights. 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 (PST) on Sunday, December 6th, 2020.  TAXI # S201206CP

Please submit well-produced Corporate Instrumental Cues with a positive, uplifting vibe and sound. Craft your submissions around a singular mood, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. You'd be wise to stick with simpler ideas without any super prominent melodic leads so your Cues won't be distracting under dialog. Your production should be polished and feature current-sounding software sounds and samples – nothing dated or low-quality will work for this pitch.

MODERN LO-FI HIP-HOP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a successful Music Library that gets tons of placements in TV Shows, Films, and Movie Trailers.

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S201028LF, but the Library wants to hear MORE material. If you submitted to listing #S201028LF, please send different material this time around.

Please send them Down-to-Mid-Tempo Instrumentals that could fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

"2am in cape town" by oh, the joy.

"I Am Fine" by HM Surf & Vesle

"Eternal Now" by less.people

Please submit top-notch Instrumentals that seamlessly marry laid-back Hip-Hop beats with vibey guitars and synths. Relaxed rhythms and tranquil melodies will help establish the chilled-out feel of your pieces. Your submissions' production should be competitive with the referenced artists and others like them. Be sure that any software samples or sounds you use are cutting-edge as nothing dated will work for this pitch. Imagine the type of stuff a hipster teen would listen to while they're studying – that's what they're looking for!

TAXI Tip: Lo-fi Hip-Hop is all about creating a chill vibe and sound. We suggest playing with textures and filters, but don't lay on the effects so thick that your submissions sound like a jumbled mess. If you listen to the references, you can tell that they have a mixture of wet (lots of reverb) and dry (no reverb) sounds that compliment each other without getting muddy. Remember, less is often more!

All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Solid edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Company does both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals, and they will be offered on a case-by-case basis. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. 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 (PST) on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020.  TAXI # S201201LF

Several AUTHENTIC-Sounding COUNTRY INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a U.K. Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

The client is looking for a whole bunch of Instrumentals/Cues in All Tempos that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following examples:

"Forever After All" by Luke Combs

"Next Girl" by Carly Pearce

"Home" by Dierks Bentley

Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals/Cues only for this pitch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Give them well-produced Instrumentals (or Cues) with an authentic, honest Country sound and vibe. Your submissions should have great melodies and inviting rhythms. They want to hear material with mainstream Country appeal, but they do NOT want to hear anything that leans heavily towards the Pop side of Country. It would be wise to stick with traditional Country instrumentation and avoid submitting anything with Pop beats or production elements.

TAXI Tip: If you decide to use any software instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and modern. Authenticity is key for nailing this request, so the more your music sounds like it's being performed by real musicians playing real instruments, the better.

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long for Instrumentals and roughly 90 seconds to 2 minutes for Cues, give or take. Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced examples 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 Instrumentals (or Cues) you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please submit as many Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

"Like This Like That" by BEGINNERS + Night Panda

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

Please submit modern Hip-Hop Instrumentals that are rhythmically engaging from start to end. Your submissions should be primarily driven by Hip-Hop percussion and beats, but it's fine to incorporate other instrumentation as long as the main focus of your pieces is your infectious rhythms. Polished, cutting-edge production and software sounds/samples are a must for this request – nothing low-quality or dated will work!

TAXI Tip: You can use some simple, non-lyrical vocal chants to add some additional "in-your-face" energy to your Tracks. Please do not submit full vocal performance songs, as only vocal elements like, “whoas,” “yeahs,” “heys,” “woo-hoos,” etc., will work for this pitch, but they're not required.

Submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

TAXI Tip: You can use some simple, non-lyrical vocal chants to add additional "in-your-face" energy to your Tracks. Please do not submit full vocal performance songs, as only vocal elements like, “whoas,” “yeahs,” “heys,” “woo-hoos,” etc., will work for this pitch.

Lots of OLD-SCHOOL-Style FUNK/SOUL INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Music Licensing Company that specializes in music for content creators as well as TV shows and Film projects!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Dispatch Listing #D201027NK, but the Company didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #D201027NK, please send different material this time around.

They’re searching for Instrumentals that could be found on a playlist with the following references:

"Superstition" by Stevie Wonder

"The Payback" by James Brown

"Shake Your Rump To The Funk" by Bar-Kays

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

Please send recently recorded Funk/Soul Instrumentals that have an old-school sound and vibe. Your submissions should have engaging rhythms, groovy bass parts, funky guitar parts, and great keyboards. Any and all virtual instruments you use should sound authentic and realistic – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-driven will work for this pitch. The more your Instrumentals sound like they're being performed by a real band playing real instruments, the better. If you've been waiting to dust off your Clavinet, now's your chance!

Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length – a little bit longer is fine . Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Several GRUNGY ALT-METAL INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Music Library with great Reality TV placements!

Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from our client:

"Would?" by Alice in Chains

"Rooster" by Alice in Chains

"Man in the Box" by Alice in Chains

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

Send them great Alt-Metal Instrumental Cues that evoke a grungy sound and vibe. Your submissions should have solid drums, memorable melodies, and distorted guitars. Be sure that your production is on the same general playing field as the referenced artist and other artists like them. As always, craft your Cues around a singular mood and motif, and layer instruments in an out as they progress to create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics. If you're using any virtual instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and sound like the real thing – the more your submissions sound like they're being performed by a real band playing real instruments the better. If your Cues are mostly done in-the-box, it could be a good idea to add some real instruments to the virtual ones to make your cues sound more authentic.

TAXI Tip: This library needs a bunch of Instrumental Cues in this style; so if you’ve got the goods, don’t be shy about submitting multiple pieces for this opportunity!

All submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2 minutes long (give or take) with non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings. Do NOT copy the examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

DARK, PULSING AMBIENT INSTRUMENTALS are needed for a $250, Direct-to-Producer/Director placement in an Independent Feature Film!

They’re on the hunt for Instrumentals that could work as a replacement for “A Warm Place” which is currently temped in.

"A Warm Place" by Nine Inch Nails

They're NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

Send them well-composed Instrumentals that generally capture the dark, ambient tone of the referenced track. We think that pulsing synth bass and ambient synths combined with some simple melodic lines could be a good approach for this pitch. It'd be wise to stick to a singular motif throughout your pieces to help them feel cohesive. Be sure that your production and any software sounds or samples you use are high-quality and help add to the dark, ambient vibe of your Instrumentals and not detract from it.

Your submissions should be about 2 to 3 minutes in length, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned endings will work best. Do NOT copy the reference in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The license fee for this placement is (up to) $250, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the 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 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 (PST) on Thursday, December 10th, 2020.  TAXI # S201210PL

Several MIDDLE EASTERN-Style PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a leading EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company for a bunch of ongoing placements that will air on Middle Eastern-themed TV programs and Documentaries. They could also air anywhere in the world, not just the Middle East! This company is distributed internationally by Universal Music!

Send them Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the references below:

"Desert Wind" by Yaşar Akpençe

"Maksoum Middle Eastern Rhythm" by Mizan Project

"Nour Balady" by Amir Sofi

This request is for purely Percussion Instrumentals! Please avoid submitting Instrumentals with any additional instrumentation.

Please submit well-composed Instrumentals that feature authentic-sounding Middle Eastern rhythms and grooves. You'd be wise to stick to a singular mood throughout your pieces so they remain cohesive. Remember, simple is usually better for these types of Instrumentals so they don't distract from dialog!

Solo instrumentation, small ensembles, and even larger ensembles can all work for this request, but please don’t rely solely upon pre-made loops - get creative with your programming! Overdubbing one or two real instruments over your virtual ones can add to the authenticity factor! Anything that’s obviously synthetic-sounding or MIDI-driven won’t work well for this company. The more realistic and authentic it sounds, the better!

NOTE: There are 18 Middle Eastern countries and they're all fair game for this request. Your submissions can have influences from countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Israel, Iraq, etc., etc., etc. Here’s a link that demonstrates many of the different percussion styles and directions your Instrumentals could go in (Don’t limit yourself to these ideas, of course – they are just some suggestions!): Middle Eastern Rhythm Guide

Your submissions should be around 3 minutes in length, give or take, and no shorter than 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the references 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 Instrumentals you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. 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 to submit. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened by TAXI.

A Wide Range of INSTRUMENTAL WORLD MUSIC ARTISTS or COMPOSERS is needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label for their next series of World Instrumental compilations. If the material is really strong, the Label might want to sign you as an Artist as well!

Due to the unique nature of this request, we didn't include references as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. Your submissions can come from places like (but not limited to): China, Japan, France, Ireland, India, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, etc, etc., etc.

TAXI Tip: Although this request is pretty wide-ranging, please submit music that could be used as background in media or for sleep, studying, relaxing, meditation, hypnosis, or in spas/massage facilities, rather than what you might hear in a travel show.

Send them well-written World Music Instrumentals with captivating rhythms and great melodies. Your submissions can range from stripped-down performances to filled-out productions and anything in between, just be sure that they capture the essence of the Country/Region/Continent they come from. Authenticity in your instrumentation, performances, and styles are all going to be very important for this request. If you use virtual instruments, please make sure they sound very convincing. Overdubbing real instruments on top of your virtual ones is a great way to make your material sound more authentic!

TAXI TIP: Please do NOT include any sound effects in your music such as animal sounds, waterfalls, wind chimes, raindrops, etc.

NOTE: We recommend that you submit TWO or THREE Instrumentals per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. It’s not necessary to land a deal with them, just a suggestion!

You’d be wise to highlight any licensing 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 compositions to back it up, they are still willing to give you a listen!

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Record Label on a case-by-case basis. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD, and include a photo and bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Saturday, November 28th, 2020.  TAXI # S201128WM

"Them Changes" by Thundercat

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

Please submit well-produced Instrumentals that embody a Funky vibe and sound. We think groovy rhythms, funky guitars, and cool, laid-back synths are the way to go for this request. Both your production and any software sound or samples you use should be high-quality, modern-sounding and cutting-edge (nothing dated, please!).

TAXI Tip: They're NOT looking for old-school Funk tracks in the vein of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, etc. They want fresh, modern Instrumentals that marry classic Funk vibes with current-sounding production techniques. Listen closely to the references to hear what we're talking about!

Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length and no longer than 4 minutes. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request.

Polished production that features super fresh (nothing dated, please!) software sounds and samples is a must for this pitch.

TAXI Tip: You’d be wise to give your Instrumentals a developmental arc to keep them from sounding too repetitive or linear. In other words, short (or no) intros, build them up, break them down, build them back up, and go for big finishes.

All submissions should be about 2 to 3 minutes in length (give or take). Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Please do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for overall feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S201107MV, but the client didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S201107MV, please send different material this time around.

They’re looking for Mid-Tempo Songs that could work as a replacement for “I'll Remember” which is currently temped in.

"I'll Remember" by Helen Forrest & The Artie Shaw Orchestra

They're NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

Send them well-produced Big Band Jazz Songs with a laid-back, easy-listening vibe and sound. Your submissions should have inviting rhythms, well-crafted melodies, and excellent, authentic-sounding Big Band Jazz instrumentation with impeccable musicianship. If you're using any virtual instruments, be sure that they are high-quality and sound like the real deal – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-Driven will work, here. Top-notch, authentic-sounding vocals could help you seal the deal!

You can submit recently recorded Songs in the general production style of the reference; or, if you’ve got any vintage recordings (recorded back in the day), they would love to hear those as well!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your Songs easier to place. 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. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The license fee for this placement is (up to) $250, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the 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 as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI A&R Screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, December 16th, 2020.  TAXI # S201216HF

Give them well-produced Pop Songs that fire on all cylinders from start to finish. Infectious rhythms, great melodies, and super catchy hooks are essential for this pitch. Your production should be slick, modern, and feature cutting-edge software sounds and samples - nothing dated will work, here. Confident, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal!

Lots of CURRENT-Sounding "GIRL POWER" POP ANTHEMS with Female Vocals are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with a GREAT track record of placements in Film and TV!

They’re looking for several Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from our client:

"Fake" by Lauv & Conan Gray

Lots of Songs about "HOME" are needed for TAXI's next proactive compilation. You can submit songs All Tempos and Styles, such as: Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, Indie Folk, Pop, Country, Anthemic Rock, Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Soul, Gospel, etc.

You’d be smart to avoid genres that don't make sense, topically. For instance, Death Metal songs about Home don't seem like they'd have a high probability for placements ;-)

We’re not giving references for this request, as we think they may be too limiting.

Here are some key concepts, keywords, ideas, and phrases to get your creative gears turning, but please don’t limit yourself to just these! We encourage you to come up with some of your own!

Lyric concepts and keywords:

  • Home sweet home
  • Coming/going home
  • Home is where the heart is
  • It doesn't feel like home without you
  • Leaving home
  • Happy to be home
  • A house isn't a home
  • Home is where I belong
  • Home town
  • Home with family
  • Longing to be home

Please submit well-produced Songs with great melodies and well-crafted lyrics about Home! Stripped-down arrangements or more filled-out, fully-produced songs could both work for this pitch, depending on which genres you choose to submit. Whichever approach you decide to take, be sure that your production is competitive with other artists in that genre. Great vocals that work well in context of your genre could really help you on this request.

Our A&R team will have a simple mandate: Is it GREAT? Does it sound ready to go as it is? Would it work well for placements in Film and TV? Would TAXI's music licensing and music library clients be happy to hear this on the playlist we send them?

Note: TAXI has been quite successful in helping our members sign deals via the playlists on previous compilations. Our industry clients like the proactive approach :-) This playlist will be sent to dozens of TAXI's best clients!

As always, you'd be wise to avoid using specific names, places (unless related to "home"), dates, times, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase the chances of your Songs getting signed and ultimately landing placements. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Because the selected Songs will be going directly to many different Music Licensing Companies, deal terms may vary. However, since some of the Companies are EXCLUSIVE Libraries, we ask that the Songs you pitch for this request are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. That includes any publishing or publishing administration deals with online distributors like CDBaby, TuneCore, etc. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. 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 (PST) on Friday, December 11th, 2020.  TAXI # S201211HM

NOTE: Remember, Retro does NOT mean Vintage. They want to hear recently recorded music that incorporates sounds and instrumentation of a bygone era – not old masters from back in the day.

Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length and no longer than 4 minutes. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request.

Confident, well-performed vocals could help get this Artist excited about cutting your songs!

A Bunch of CURRENT-Sounding RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Successful Record Producer for several (up to) $5,000 placements for some notable artists in the Chinese market!

This Record Producer is looking for lots of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

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

"Boss B*tch" by Doja Cat

"WAP" by Cardi B feat. Megan Thee Stallion

"Tap In" by Saweetie

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your lyrics DO NOT need to be in Chinese. Lyrics in English are fine. If your Songs are selected, your lyrics will be translated into the appropriate language. You will most likely keep the majority of your publishing, but you may need to share a percentage with the Chinese lyricist who translates your lyrics from English.

Give them excellent, modern Hip-Hop Songs that fire on all cylinders from top to bottom. Inventive lyrics, instantly memorable hooks, infectious rhythms, and uber-confident, well-performed vocals with impressive lyrical flow are all essential for this request. Your production should be state-of-the-art and feature modern, high-quality software sounds, beats, and samples. They're looking for music that could take these artists to the top of the charts – give them that!

The estimated songwriter/producer fee is (up to) $5,000 per placement. You can potentially earn an additional fee if they choose to keep your productions as-is and they buy entire Songs from you!

Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe.

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Producer 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 and critiqued by a TAXI screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Saturday, December 5th, 2020. TAXI # S201205HH

CURRENT-Sounding LATIN RAP/HIP-HOP ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-known Indie Label that’s always on the lookout for great new talent to sign. This company has signed record deals with TAXI members!

Please listen to the references below to get a general idea of what might get this really cool Record Label interested:

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

"Bingo" by Gera MX & Jayrick

"ALELUYA (REMIX)" by Rels B, Duki, & Aleman

"Instinto" by Harry Nach & Jackboy

Give them cutting-edge Latin Hip-Hop Songs that fire on all cylinders from top to bottom. Your submissions should have infectious beats and rhythms, instantly memorable hooks, and well-crafted lyrics with inventive wordplay. Be sure that your production is top-notch and features high-quality, modern software sounds and samples. Having excellent vocals with impressive lyrical flow and distinctive Latin Hip-Hop flavor could help you seal the deal!

Your vocals should be well-executed and sung primarily in Spanish but can have a little bit of English mixed in as well.

CHECK THIS OUT! Please send THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. This label has signed TAXI acts to full Record Deals, and they found them through a TAXI Listing just like this!

They’re 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 are still willing to give you a listen!

Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form.

Please submit three Songs, online or per CD, with lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Monday, November 30th, 2020.  TAXI # S201130TN

FOREIGN-LANGUAGE RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS (no English) with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a successful, well-known Indie Label.

NOTE: Your Songs can be in languages as wide-ranging as Spanish, Arabic, French, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Japanese, etc. Just no English, please! Naturally, the most common languages will be more appealing to the client. Obscure languages could be less appealing to the label.

We purposely avoided putting references in this request, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful. They’re open to hearing all sub-genres of Rap/Hip-Hop like (but not limited to) East Coast Rap, Rock Rap, West Coast Rap, Trap, Latin Rap, and traditional boom-bap Hip-Hop as long as it's in a language other than English.

Send them top-notch Hip-Hop Songs with great beats, killer hooks, and clever lyrics. Having well-performed vocals with lots of attitude and cutting-edge, impressive lyrical flow could help you seal the deal! The more your Songs sound like records that could be on the radio, rather than material that sounds like it came from a Music Library, the better your chances are of getting this Record Label’s attention.

NOTE: Recently recorded Songs or old-school-leaning material can both potentially work for this request.

The specific deal points will be negotiated on a Song-by-Song basis directly with the Label. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include lyrics. All submissions will be screened by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020.  TAXI # S201209HH

Several NEO SOUL SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Music Library with great Reality TV placements!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S201103AW, but the Library wants to hear MORE material. If you submitted to listing #S201103AW, please send different material this time around.

Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from them:

"Rehab" by Amy Winehouse

"What You Don't Do" by Lianne La Havas

"You Know I'm No Good" by Amy Winehouse

Send them well-produced Neo Soul Songs with inviting rhythms, memorable melodies, catchy choruses, and expressive, well-performed vocals. Typical organic-based Neo Soul instrumentation with some cool, modern-sounding ear candy sprinkled here and there is probably the best way to go for this pitch. Adding strings and horns could be a cool idea, but it's not requisite by any means.  Be sure that any software instruments or samples you use are high-quality, fresh, and not dated.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, 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 keep 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 per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

“Easy” by Aminé feat. Summer Walker

“Goldmine” by Savannah Cristina

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company offers an Exclusive deal, and is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Polished, high-quality R&B production with cutting-edge software sounds and samples will suit your submissions well.

Lyrics that avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably make them happiest. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

"Love Rollercoaster" by Ohio Players

"Flashlight" by Parliament

"Get Up Offa That Thing" by James Brown

"Fire on the Bayou" by The Meters

"Thank You" by Sly & The Family Stone

Please send recently recorded Funk/Soul Songs that have an old-school sound and vibe. Your submissions should have engaging rhythms, super catchy melodies, groovy bass parts, funky guitar parts, and great keyboards. Super confident, well-performed vocals that exude soulful swagger are a must, as well. Any and all virtual instruments you use should sound authentic and realistic – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-driven will work for this pitch. The more your Songs sound like they're being performed by a real band playing real instruments, the better. If you've been waiting to dust off your wah-wah pedal, now's your chance!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

They’re searching for a nice-sized batch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following reference we got directly from our client:

"Death Rattle" by Pantera

Please submit face-melting metal Songs with intense rhythms, great musicianship, and growling, aggressive vocals. Your production should be on the same general playing field as the reference and other artists like it. If you use Virtual Instruments or samples, we’d suggest adding some real, organic instruments (drums, guitars, etc.) into your mixes as well. The more your submissions sound like they're being performed by a real band playing real instruments, the better!

TAXI Tip: They do NOT want to hear normal "sung" vocals for this pitch. Give them songs that have a distinct HEAVY-style vocal delivery!

Please avoid the use of specific names, places, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase your chances of getting your Songs synced! Do NOT copy the referenced artist or song in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT! Per our client, your Submissions must:

1) NOT be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive) including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby, TuneCore, DistroKid, etc.

2) Be 100% original – no soundalikes, Cover Songs, and no recordings with samples.

A Bunch of RIOT GRRRL ROCK SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a very successful EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company. This company has a history of lots and lots of really AWESOME placements!

They’re searching for a nice-sized batch of Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from our client:

"Deceptacon" by Le Tigre

"Volcano Girls" by Veruca Salt

"I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone" by Sleater-Kinney

"Kiss My Ass Goodbye" by 7 Year Bitch

"Trophy Wifey" by Partyline

Quoting the Company: "We're looking for female-fronted Rock in the Garage/Grunge, Punk, Post-Punk, and New Wave arenas. Songs can have a throwback/retro sound or be brand-spankin' new. Edgy, raw, unapologetic attitudes are good elements to have, but anything overly poppy or pop-leaning is not the right fit for this search."

Send them top-notch, female-fronted Rock Songs with tons of unapologetic energy! Your submissions should have great melodies, solid rhythms, excellent musicianship, and well-performed vocals with a heaping amount of Riot Grrrl attitude. As the company said, they want stuff that's raw, edgy, and not Pop-leaning, so we think typical Rock-band instrumentation will suit your submissions best. Be sure that your production is generally competitive with the references and others like them. If you do decide to use any virtual instruments, they need to be high-quality and can't sound overly quantized or MIDI-driven. The more your submissions sound like they're being performed by a real band playing real instruments, the better!

Lyric Tip: The Company tells us that they're "open to a variety of lyrical themes and subjects, BUT lyrics that speak to women’s empowerment, broadly relatable subjects of human experience, contemporary issues, and non-romantic/non-traditional relationships are strongly encouraged."

Please avoid the use of specific names, places, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase your chances of getting your Songs synced! If your Songs do have explicit lyrics, have a clean version ready to send on-demand. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT! Per our client, your Submissions must:

1) NOT be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive) including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby, TuneCore, DistroKid, etc.

ORIGINAL 1960's-Style BRITISH BLUES ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an Indie Record Label with Major Distribution. This client is currently on the hunt for great Songs for Film, TV, and Advertising placements AND to include in one of their incredibly popular compilations!

They’re looking for original Songs in All Tempos that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from the client:

"Rattlesnake Shake" by Fleetwood Mac

"All Your Love" by John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers

"Strange Brew" by Cream

"I Can't Quit You Baby" by Led Zeppelin

NOTE: This Record Label would prefer to hear original vintage pieces that actually date back to the 1960s, and the sound quality must be reasonably good. They will also consider recent recordings; however, they must authentically sound like they were recorded around the same time as the references. They’re not looking for in-the-box Pro Tools Projects that sound like they were recorded recently. They want to hear a Raw and Real performance by authentic musicians. Submissions CANNOT sound modern, clean, and/or computer-processed.

Quoting the Label: "Great harmonica playing and slide guitar playing is not a requirement, but would be a PLUS."

Give them top-notch Songs that evoke the rough, raw vibe and sound of the '60's British Blues movement. Your submissions should have bluesy rhythms, great melodies, and solid musicianship. Soulful, well-performed vocals with authentic-sounding 1960's-style British Blues phrasing are a must, as well. You'd be wise to stick with genre and era-appropriate instrumentation for this request – that means nothing that sounds modern or synthetic.

TAXI Tip: They're NOT looking for American Delta Blues tracks for this pitch, so be sure that your submissions accurately capture the sound and feel of 1960's British Blues Rock!

Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, and brands would be optimal 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. If you're submitting vintage recordings, the sound quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality will work just fine.

The deal points will be negotiated directly with the Publisher on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener who has a strong relationship with the Record Label Owner. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Thursday, December 17th, 2020. TAXI # S201217BR

Lots of GRUNGY ALT-METAL SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Library with great Reality TV placements!

Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from our client:

"Would?" by Alice in Chains

"Rooster" by Alice in Chains

"Man in the Box" by Alice in Chains

Send them great Alt-Metal Songs that evoke a grungy sound and vibe. Your submissions should have solid drums, memorable melodies, distorted guitars, and well-performed, growling vocals. Be sure that your production is on the same general playing field as the references and other artists like them.

TAXI Tip: If you're using any virtual instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and sound like the real thing – the more your submissions sound like they're being performed by a real band playing real instruments the better. If your songs are mostly done in-the-box, it could be a good idea to add some real instruments to the virtual ones to make your them sound and feel more authentic.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture, 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 keep 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share.

DRIVING, HAUNTING ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for an (up to) $250, Direct-to-Producer/Director placement in an Independent Feature Film!

They’re on the hunt for Up-Tempo Songs that could work as a replacement for “Long Train” which is currently temped in.

"Long Train" by Sisters of Mercy

They're NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, style, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

TAXI Tip: We don't think that your Songs necessarily have to have '80s-style production and arrangements. This request is all about nailing the vibe, tempo, emotion, and tone of the reference, so we think both recently recorded Rock tracks with a modern production style or vintage '80s Rock recordings could work. If you have either, send them in!

Send them well-produced Songs that exemplify an up-tempo, haunting energy and vibe. We think that driving rhythms, chunky guitar riffs, and typical Rock-band instrumentation with some cool synths layered in will probably suit your submissions best. Since the vocals on the referenced track are minimal and sit pretty far back in the mix, you can probably get away with more Instrumental-based Songs with some dark, eerie vocals layered in here and there – almost like they're another instrument!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your Songs easier to place. 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. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The license fee for this placement is (up to) $250, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Producer placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the 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 as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI A&R Screener who works directly with the Producer/Director!

They’re on the hunt for Songs in All Tempos in the general stylistic range of the following references:

"What They'll Say About Us" by FINNEAS

"Lost in Time" by Arther Blue

"Bloom" by LULLANAS

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company offers an Exclusive deal, and is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. If you don't have that experience and you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Send them top-tier, current-sounding Singer/Songwriter Songs with captivating melodies, inviting rhythms, and memorable choruses. Honest, well-written lyrics coupled with excellent, expressive vocals are essential, here. Your submissions can range from stripped-down, more Indie-style performances to more filled-out, mainstream productions and anywhere in between. Whichever approach you decide to take, be sure that your production is generally competitive with the referenced artists and others in the Singer/Songwriter genre.

Lyrics that avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will probably make them happiest. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Songs For COVID-19 Pandemic Projects

Return to List of Categories

A Lot of EMOTIONALLY UPLIFTING SONGS in a range of styles with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an awesome Music Publisher that will be pitching to “Post-Pandemic” TV Commercials in the near future!

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV Commercials they anticipate will feature messages and images about “life after the pandemic." Hopefully, we'll see that day in the near future ;-)

We’ve come up with some key concepts, keywords, ideas, and phrases to get your creative gears turning, but please don’t limit yourself to just these! We encourage you to come up with some of your own!

Concepts and keywords:

  • A brand new day
  • Time to go out and play
  • Getting out
  • Getting together
  • Rise up
  • Living life again
  • Taking or getting your life back
  • Moving on
  • A fresh start
  • Feeling free

Lyric themes:
Common sense tells us that most of these TV Commercials will show montages of people at the beach, parks, family gatherings, out shopping, and generally living life again once this pandemic is just a memory. We're all ready for that, right?!

General concepts in your lyrics could work better than telling full stories. Short, rhythmic phrases that repeat in the chorus could work well. "It's gonna be a great day!" Lyrics that also avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to Ad Agencies. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

Your Songs should have a positive, uplifting, advertising-friendly mood that could easily work for a wide range of placements in Post-Pandemic TV Commercials. Inviting rhythms, memorable melodies, and well-performed vocals will suit your submissions well. Your production and any software sounds and samples you use need to be polished and modern (nothing dated, please!).

Possible genres and styles:
We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. However, this company tends to request the following commercially-viable genres from TAXI, so you’d probably be wise to focus your efforts on Pop, Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Indie Folk, Rock, and Hip-Hop Songs.

Tempo:
Up-Tempo Songs that convey an upbeat, inspiring vibe will likely work better in this context than Down-Tempo Songs that feel melancholy or sad.

Our A&R team will have a simple mandate:
Is it GREAT? Can you imagine hearing it in a big, national ad campaign? Does it sound ready-to-go as-is? Does it fit the emotional vibe and message that would likely be in TV Spots about this general subject/topic?

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. 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 (PST) on Saturday, December 12th, 2020.  TAXI # S201212UP

A Wide Range of WORLD MUSIC ARTISTS or BANDS are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s eagerly looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its roster.

Due to the unique nature of this request, we didn't include references as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. Your submissions can come from (and feature languages from) places like (but not limited to): China, Japan, France, Ireland, India, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East etc, etc, etc.

Send them well-written World Music Songs with captivating rhythms and great melodies. Your submissions can range from stripped-down performances to fuller productions and anything in between. Just be sure that they capture the essence of the Country/Region/Continent they come from. Authentic-sounding vocals and production are a must, as well.

TAXI TIP: Please do NOT include any sound effects in your music such as animal sounds, waterfalls, wind chimes, raindrops, etc.

NOTE: We recommend that you submit TWO or THREE SONGS per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. It’s not necessary to land a deal with them, just a suggestion!

You’d be wise to highlight any licensing experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have in your bio. All those things can help make you more appealing to the company! 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 compositions to back it up, they are still willing to give you a listen!

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Record Label on a case-by-case basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include a photo and bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Thursday, December 10th, 2020.  TAXI # S201210WM
