If you do plan on using any virtual instruments, they need to sound like the real thing – nothing low-quality or obviously MIDI-driven will work for this pitch. Haunting, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

They didn’t specify any particular lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Quoting the Company: "We'd like to hear Traditional Blues & Acoustic Blues (including “old-timey”-sounding Blues) Songs."

Organic-based Blues instrumentation with top-notch musicianship will suit your Songs best – avoid submitting anything that sounds synthetic or obviously MIDI-driven. Expressive, well-performed vocals coupled with well-crafted, genre-appropriate lyrics could be the cherry on top for this pitch.

TAXI Tip: Authentic-sounding performances are key to nailing this request; so if you're using any virtual instruments for this pitch, be sure that they don't sound low-quality, stiff, or obviously MIDI-driven. The more your pieces sound like they're being performed by real Blues musicians playing real instruments, the better!

They didn’t specify any particular lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Country

Return to List of Categories

A Bunch of EMOTIONAL COUNTRY LOVE SONGS with Female Vocals are needed for $4,000 Direct-to-Music Supervisor placements in a Cable TV Series.

This Music Supervisor is looking for lots of Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that could fit on a playlist with the following references we got directly from him:

"I'll Still Love You More" by Trisha Yearwood

"More Like Her" by Miranda Lambert

"Wrong Again" by Martina McBride

"You Were Mine" by The Chicks

"Count Me In" by Deana Carter

"Insensitive" by LeAnn Rimes

Quoting the Music Supervisor: "I'm looking for heartfelt, down-to-earth, intimate Country Songs and Ballads. Each track needs to retain its down-home, honest emotional interest throughout. The storylines have to move and engage the listener. The more poignant the emotion, the better."

Please send well-produced Country Songs with solid melodies, inviting rhythms, and soaring, instantly memorable choruses. Typical Country instrumentation generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best. If you plan on using virtual instruments, they need to be high-quality, modern, and can't sound stiff or obviously MIDI-driven. Expressive, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal with this Music Supervisor!

TAXI Tip: We noticed that all of the referenced Songs have lyrics that talk more about heartbreak than being happy in love. We think it'd be a good idea to submit Songs with well-crafted lyrics in the same general range of those themes.

NOTE: Time-permitting, the Music Supervisor himself might be able to screen submissions for this request! The bar will be high for this request, so pull out your best and pay special attention to your songcraft and recording quality, as well.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity will be appreciated by the Music Supervisor, as they are often easier to place because they don't conflict with the story or the scene. Do not copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $4,000, depending on the ultimate usage. These will be Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Time-permitting, the Music Supervisor himself might be able to screen submissions for this request! Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, April 21st, 2021.

Please submit well-written Songs that combine Country instrumentation and songwriting with top-notch Pop production elements. Your submissions should have great melodies, inviting rhythms, super catchy choruses, and tons of mainstream appeal.

Cover Songs

RE-IMAGINED COVER VERSIONS of PUBLIC DOMAIN SONGS ABOUT TEXAS in All Genres with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a hard-plugging Music Library with a GREAT track record of placements!

We think you’d be wise to go with popular genres like Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Country, Americana, Traditional Pop, Jazz, R&B, Indie Folk, Pop, Rock, Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Soul, Hip-Hop, etc. You’d be smart to avoid genres that aren’t relatable to a wide audience.

This Library is looking for re-imagined Cover Versions in All Tempos and moods of the following Songs in the Public Domain:

"The Yellow Rose of Texas" by Mitch Miller & The Gang and Orchestra

"The West Texas Blues" by Johnny Dunn with Edith Wilson

"My Heart's Tonight in Texas" by The Carter Family

Please submit re-imagined Covers of the above Songs with solid arrangements and high-quality production. We think both stripped-down performances and more filled-out arrangements could work for this request. If you're planning on using virtual instruments or samples to replace organic instruments, they need to sound like the real thing and can't be dated or obviously MIDI-driven. Any other virtual instruments and samples you use should be modern and top-quality, as well. Well-executed, compelling vocals could be the cherry on top!

TAXI Tip: We recommend sticking as close to the original melodies and lyrics as possible so they're easily recognizable to users. If any lyrics have been updated in the past to eliminate racially specific references, please use the updated versions.

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. You must own or control your Master recordings to submit. 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.

RE-IMAGINED COVERS of Specific Songs in ANY GENRE with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Publisher for targeted placements in Television, Advertising, and Film!

We’re not giving references for this request, as we think they may be too limiting. Genre-wise, we think you’d be wise to go with popular genres like Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Traditional Pop, Jazz, R&B, Indie Folk, Pop, Country, Americana, Rock, Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Soul, etc. You’d be smart to avoid genres that aren’t relatable to a wide audience.

This publisher is eagerly searching for COVERS of the following songs:

"Hit The Road Jack" by Ray Charles

"I Just Want to Celebrate" by Rare Earth

"Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" by Steam

"Good Vibrations" by The Beach Boys

"All Together Now" by The Beatles

"Let's Stay Together" by Al Green

"You Make My Dreams Come True" by Hall & Oates

"California Dreamin'" by The Mamas & the Papas

"(Theme From) New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra

"Just a Girl" by No Doubt

"Run the World (Girls)" by Beyoncé

"Should I Stay or Should I Go" by The Clash

NOTE: This Publisher is very interested in finding UNIQUE interpretations of the original songs. Feel free to get creative and think outside the box with this one!

Please submit re-imagined Covers of any of the Songs above. We think both stripped-down performances and more filled-out arrangements could work for this request. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production and arrangements should be polished and high-quality. If you're planning on using virtual instruments to replace organic ones, they need to sound like the real thing and can't be dated or obviously MIDI-driven. Any other virtual instruments and samples you use should be modern and top-quality, as well. Compelling, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

TAXI Tip: We recommend sticking as close to the original songs' melodies and lyrics so they're easily recognizable to listeners! But, as an example of what "re-imagined" could be; think of what these songs might sound like if they were done in a Hip-Hop, Funk, or Punk Rock style. Stand them on their head, spin them around, and see what comes out the other end. Got it? Yay, now go knock it out of the park!

TV Promos and Film Trailers use re-imagined songs all the time, so watch this to get an idea! Here are more examples for your edification :-)

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your music used during that term, you can get your rights back. Since this company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed to other Libraries or Catalogs. You must own or control your Master recordings. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener.

ORGANIC-Based, "ELEGANT and INSPIRATIONAL" INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal for placements in Commercials, Advertising, and Promotions as well as TV Shows!

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

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Library: "We'd like to hear organic, elegant, and gentle arrangements that build, but never get huge. The pieces should stay on the somewhat lighter side of things. Some moods we'd like to hear are;
inspiring, positive, motivational, but not going so far as 'victorious.' Be sure that your arrangements are warm, positive, and inspiring, but WITHOUT drifting into New Age or Ambient terrain. In other words, a warm and wholesome feel but with a pulse and subtle forward motion."

Please submit well-produced, current-sounding Instrumentals that build throughout without becoming too big. Organic-based instrumentation in the general ballpark of the references will suit your submissions well – think light Strings, Piano, subtle Percussion, etc. If you're planning on using any virtual instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and modern. Build your Cues around one clear motif, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress.

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 (PDT) on Wednesday, April 21st, 2021. TAXI # S210421EB

MELLOW ELECTRO POP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal for placements in TV Shows and Promotions.

This is a catalog you want to be in! Please listen to the following examples the Library 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, 'mellow' mood: Not sad, not exciting, but somewhat mellow – think easy-going, positive 'poolside' kinda mood. The Cues should have fresh and somewhat sophisticated arrangements with a warm tone to them."

Please send well-produced Pop Instrumental Cues with fresh Electronic Instrumentation, slick production, and an overall laidback, mellow vibe and sound. Craft your Cues around one clear motif and mood, and create a sense of forward movement and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. Please be sure that the virtual instruments and samples you use are cutting-edge and high-quality. If you could imagine relaxing by the poolside sipping an ice-cold drink while listening to your tracks, send them in!

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 more interested in composers who have experience writing full albums for Music Libraries than people who only produce one or two tracks every now and then. They also have a strong preference for working with composers who have worked with music libraries and music licensing companies, and understand how typical music library deals are structured. If that's not you, they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

This Music Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal with a cool twist.  You’ll keep 50% of all gross income generated by your music, plus you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share income generated by your PRO.

Your submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

"Casablanca" by Fanfare Ciocarlia

Please submit top-notch Instrumentals with authentic-sounding Balkan melodies, rhythms, and arrangements. Your submissions can have a range of instrumentation, just be sure that they're in the same general range of the references. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are super high-quality and not stiff or dated. If your Instrumentals could get the party started, send them in!

INSTRUMENTAL COVERS of LATIN NATIONAL ANTHEMS 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 Dispatch Listing #D210225NA, but the Library didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #D210225NA, please send different material this time around.

Please send them Instrumentals that could fit in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

"Brazil National Anthem"

"La Bayamesa (Cuban National Anthem)" by Bebo Valdés

"Oh Gloria Inmarcesible (Colombia National Anthem)"

Please submit well-produced Instrumental Covers of National Anthems from any Latin country. Stripped-down arrangements, as well as filled-out productions, could both work for this pitch. We think your instrumentation can range as well – incorporating traditional instruments from the anthems' countries of origin might be a nice touch! Whichever approach you take, your production should be high-quality. If you're planning on using any virtual instruments, they should sound like the real thing as nothing synthetic, stiff, or obviously MIDI-driven will work.

TAXI Tip: We recommend sticking as close to the original anthems' melodies as possible so they are easily recognized!

All submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length, give or take. Keeping it under 4 minutes is also a good idea. Solid edit points and buttoned/stinger endings are encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it 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 Recording to pitch for this opportunity.

EPIC MODERN ROCK INSTRUMENTALS are needed for a wide range of $5,000 to $100,000 placements by a top-tier Music Licensing Company that's had placements in over 650 Blockbuster Film Advertising Campaigns/Trailers!

NOTE: This Company is BRAND NEW to requesting music from TAXI's members, so it's unlikely you have anything in their catalog yet.

They're looking for Instrumentals that could fit on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"Born Ready" by Zayde Wølf

"Watch Me" by The Phantoms

Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch. Non-Lyrical, group "Vocalizations" like Oohs, Ahhs, etc., are OK for this pitch!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company is looking more for Composer/Producers for ongoing relationships, rather than just a specific track for a specific placement. We suspect that if they hear a couple of your tracks and love what you're doing, they'll ask you to submit more tracks on an ongoing basis. You could also get added to their email list so you can respond to future briefs as they come in!

We recommend submitting 2 to 3 Instrumentals so they can see if you have depth in your material.

Please submit top-notch Modern Rock Instrumentals with an epic, larger-than-life sound and sonic gravitas that would work well in the context of Blockbuster Film Trailers. Your submissions should have gut-punching rhythms, super-catchy guitar riffs, and tons of unapologetic attitude. Instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best, but that doesn't mean you need to exactly emulate them -- just think of their instrumentation as a "foundation" of sorts.

NOTE: They asked us for Modern Rock, but we did take note that the two references they gave us are pretty "Stomp-Clappy," so being in that ballpark certainly couldn't hurt

All submissions should be about 2 to 3 minutes in length (give or take). Non-faded, 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.

Since this Company works in the Blockbuster Trailer industry, sync fees for placements they generate could range from $5,000 to $100,000 per track depending on duration used, media type, and territory. Those sound like some pretty sweet payouts to us!

This Company offers a NON-Exclusive, 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share for any placements they generate. 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 and critiqued by TAXI.

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. 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: This company is more interested in composers who have experience writing full albums for Music Libraries than people who only produce one or two tracks every now and then.

"Kitchen" by This Will Destroy You

"Disintegration Anxiety" by Explosions In The Sky

Quoting the Label: “We're looking for Post-Rock bands with big, majestic tracks driven by loud layers of guitars and keyboards/software-generated instrumentation with a dark mood - regardless of if it's super heavy or more mellow the mood has to be very dark."

Please send well-crafted Instrumental Post-Rock tracks that display your epic, moody sound and style. Your submissions should have solid guitars, majestic arrangements, and great synths. Be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are competitive with the references.

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

The Label is interested in artists and bands that have gained some traction from actively working on their career. 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!

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

Please submit as many Instrumentals as you'd like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics, photos, and a bio.

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE BIG BAND INSTRUMENTALS that were RECORDED BEFORE 1990 are needed by a Music Library with a ton of credits in Feature Films, TV Shows, and TV Commercials.

This Library is looking for authentic recordings in All Tempos that might fit well on a playlist with the following references:

"Moonlight Serenade" by Glenn Miller & His Orchestra

"Sing Sing Sing" by Benny Goodman

"In the Mood" by Glenn Miller

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please include the Year your Instrumentals were recorded in the lyric section of the TAXI submission form! You must provide us with the year the recordings were made if you'd like to be considered for this request.

Please send them vintage recordings of original (no covers) Big Band Instrumentals that were recorded before 1990. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s Broadcast Quality! Good demos and master recordings are all of interest to this company!

Your submissions should have jazzy melodies, catchy hooks, and great rhythms. Genre/era-appropriate arrangements and instrumentation with fantastic, big-band musicianship are musts for this request, as well.

NOTE: 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. It doesn't have to be super hi-fi, but reasonably good, well-balanced recordings and mixes are needed.

This Company offers a NON-Exclusive, 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share.

Several MINIMALISTIC, TRADITIONAL NORTH AFRICAN INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful International Music Licensing Company with global distribution through a huge music conglomerate!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Dispatch Listing #D210311NA, but the Company wants to hear even MORE material! If you submitted to listing #D210311NA, please send different material this time around.

They’re open to hearing a range of traditional styles from the following countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, or Libya.

TAXI Tip: Want to be a standout with little competition in a particular genre in this company's catalog? Here's your chance! Less competition = More possible placements!

Here are some references in the general ballpark to get you started, but don't limit yourself to just these! If your pieces are sparse, Traditional Instrumentals from North Africa, send them in!

"Ahudar (Sauvegard)" by Lakri

Libyan Traditional Maloof Music - Bushra Haniyah (up to 1:35)

Tunisia Folk Music (from 38:07 to 41:49)

Although one of the references has vocals, please submit Instrumental Cues only for this request.

Please submit well-composed Traditional Instrumental Cues that capture the sound and essence of whichever North African country you choose in a minimalsparse way. If you're using any virtual instruments to replace organic ones, they need to sound like the real thing – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-driven will work, here. Incorporating traditional instruments like the Sintir, Algerian Mandole, Zukra, etc. into your pieces could help add to their authenticity factor. Build your Cues around a simple motif, and create a subtle sense of movement and dynamics by layering instruments in and out as they progress. Remember, simple is best for this pitch!

Quoting the Music Library: “We are looking for Cues that are sparse and somewhat simple. Only 4 to 6 instruments maximum. Keep them simple and try to introduce some edit points in your tracks. Very high bar, in terms of realism. Meaning, if any of the instruments sound too 'MIDI' then the Cues should be rejected.”

Your submissions need to be around 2 minutes long (nothing that runs 3 or 4 minutes, please) with non-faded, buttoned endings. 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. 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 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE PROTO-ELECTRONIC/EXPERIMENTAL INSTRUMENTALS that were RECORDED between 1970 and 1985 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references the Publisher gave us below, you might have exactly what they need:

"Airlane" by Gary Numan

"Midnight In Tula" by Tangerine Dream

"Trans-Europe Express" by Kraftwerk

Although one of the references has vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality, and you can submit old masters OR old demos.

Please submit top-notch Proto-Electronic/Experimental Instrumentals with a generally similar sound and style to the references and other artists like them. Please be sure that your instrumentation (synth sounds in particular), arrangements, and production are era and genre-appropriate. This Publisher is looking for music that epitomizes the early stages of Electronic music – give them that!

Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than great demo recordings! This Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period. This is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and Feature Films when music from a specific time period is needed.

The Company pays you upfront for the Master Rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization. Win-win! This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000 to $15,000 (or more!). Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the Instrumentals signed by the Publisher.

Make sure your Instrumentals were actually recorded between 1970 and 1985, 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 golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your Instrumentals need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the Copyright and Master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, May 6th, 2021. TAXI # S210506SV

BUILDING, CINEMATIC PIANO-Based 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 the Library gave us to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need:

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Company: "We'd like to hear building, cinematic, piano-based Instrumental Cues. Pattern-based compositions can work very well!"

Please submit well-produced, cinematic Instrumental Cues crafted around one clear motif and mood that build to a climactic crescendo by layering more instrumentation in as they progress. Piano should be the main focus and base of your instrumentation, but additional instrumentation like Strings, light Percussion, Synths, Guitars, etc. are fine, as well. Please be sure that your production and any and all virtual instruments or samples you use are state-of-the-art and polished.

TAXI Tip: A well-recorded Piano is important for this request. Whether you use a real or virtual instrument, it needs to sound polished and realistic!

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 more interested in composers who have experience writing full albums for Music Libraries than people who only produce one or two tracks every now and then. They also have a strong preference for working with composers who have worked with music libraries and music licensing companies, and understand how typical music library deals are structured. If that's not you, they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

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

Because this is an Exclusive deal, the music you submit for this pitch cannot already be signed with other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control 100% of your Master and 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 (PDT) on Thursday, May 6th, 2021. TAXI # S210506PN

Duck Dynasty (from 13:49 to 14:14)

Although one of the references has vocals, please submit Instrumental Cues only for this pitch.

Please submit top-notch Swamp Rock Instrumental Cues with twangy guitar riffs, great rhythms, and a healthy dose of Southern charm. Craft your Cues around a singular motif and mood, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and not dated. The more your pieces sound like they're being performed by real musicians playing real instruments, the better!

All submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings 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.

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

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Library: "We’re looking for Pop Cues that sound fresh, bright, perky, lively, positive, and cool. We want music that will drive excitement for an advertising campaign, but no 'dancefloor fillers.'"

Please send well-produced Pop Instrumental Cues with fresh beats and lots of positive energy. Craft your Cues around one clear motif, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instruments in and out as they progress. Avoid submitting anything that has any prominent leads or melodies – stick with one catchy riff/motif. Your production should be slick and feature state-of-the-art virtual instruments and samples. If your submissions could get consumers excited about this new product, you could be onto something!

TAXI Tip: Although they're looking for youthful music, they do NOT want Cues that are childish. Think fun, fresh, and upbeat – not nursery rhymes!

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.

A Bunch of MINIMALISTIC, TRADITIONAL GREEK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful International Music Licensing Company with global distribution through a huge music conglomerate!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Dispatch Listing #D210323GR, but the Company didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #D210323GR, please send different material this time around.

TAXI Tip: Want to be a standout with little competition in a particular genre in this company's catalog? Here's your chance! Less competition = More possible placements!

This Company is searching for Instrumental Cues in the general ballpark of these references:

"Catholique Girl of Syros" by Nikos Soulis

"Itia" by Kiki Fragouli

"My Little Neighbor" by Nikos Vasiliou

Although one of the references has vocals, please submit Instrumental Cues only for this request.

Please submit Instrumental Cues that capture the essence of Traditional Greek music in a sparse and minimalistic way. Your Cues should have authentic-sounding rhythms, melodies, and instrumentation. Incorporating traditional instruments like the Bouzouki, Karamuza, or Toubeleki could help your pieces feel more authentic. If you're using any virtual instruments to replace organic ones, they need to sound like the real thing – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-driven will work, here. Build your Cues around a simple motif, and create a subtle sense of movement and dynamics by layering instruments in and out as they progress. Remember, simple is best for this pitch!

Quoting the Music Library: “We are looking for Cues that are sparse and somewhat simple. Only 4 to 6 instruments maximum. Keep them simple and try to introduce some edit points along the tracks. Very high bar, in terms of realism. Meaning, if any of the instruments sound too 'MIDI' then the Cues should be rejected.”

Your submissions need to be around 2 minutes long (nothing that runs 3 or 4 minutes, please) with non-faded, buttoned endings. 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 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

NOTE: Do NOT submit any tracks with spoken producer tags/watermarks as they're not usable for film and TV placements.

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.

Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Captivating, well-performed vocals could help get this Label and the Artist excited about cutting your tracks!

Lyric Tip: While your lyrics should fall on the younger side of the Pop spectrum, they do NOT want to hear any "teeny-bopper" childish themes, as they’re trying to build a more mature repertoire for the artist. Keep your lyrics fresh, cool, and current!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If your Songs are used, this label gives 100% of the buyout fees (for the Master Recording and the Publisher's share) to the songwriters/producers of the Songs, which normally range from $800 to $1,000 each. The songwriter(s) also keep 100% of the Writer's share of the publishing.

"I Only Want To Be With You" by Dusty Springfield

"Downtown" by Petula Clark

"You're My World" by Cilla Black

Please submit top-notch Pop Songs that embody a generally similar sound and vibe to the references. Your submissions should have well-crafted melodies, instantly memorable choruses, and inviting rhythms. Excellent musicianship and well-crafted lyrics are required for this pitch, as well.

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.

This Company is looking for a bunch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of (but not limited to) these references:

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

"Run for Your Life" by The Seige

"HUMBLE." by Kendrick Lamar

"Welcome To The War" by 7kingZ

Please submit top-tier Hip-Hop Songs that are rhythmically and melodically engaging from start to finish. Your submissions should have killer beats, great hooks, tons of energy, and unapologetic vocals with impressive lyrical flows. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and cutting-edge. Imagine the type of Hip-Hop you might hear in a sports highlight reel or in a dramatic TV show scene – that's the type of music they're looking for!

Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing. 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.

INTROSPECTIVE HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Film/TV Music Publisher to pitch directly to a Music Supervisor for an (up to) $10,000 placement in a Netflix show!

This Publisher really, really wants to find Songs that could work as a replacement for “Self Care” which is currently temped in.

WARNING: The reference may contain graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"Self Care" by Mac Miller

Quoting the Publisher and Music Supervisor: "This song will be for a heavier and complex scene, so the tone is very key. We’re leaning towards English lyrics with Male Vocals, but we are open to lyrics in Spanish or Female Vocals if the song is a perfect fit. Explicit lyrics are okay! In this scene, one of the characters has just had a fight with a loved one, and they end up in their car afterward smoking weed and thinking about where they should go from there. The song will start as source music coming out of the car radio and transition into the end credits. We like "Self Care" because it's about being overwhelmed by life and needing some time for yourself, but knowing that you’re alright, even if you think you're crazy for believing that. We want something that has a similar tone and is believable as something you might hear on the radio in California."

Please submit well-produced Hip-Hop Songs that capture a generally similar vibe and sound to the reference. But, take note: They are NOT looking for a clone of the reference song! Your submissions should have mellow beats (matching the tempo could be a good idea), slick production, and feature state-of-the-art virtual instruments and samples. Well-performed vocals (in English or Spanish) with compelling lyrical flows paired with well-crafted, introspective lyrics could help you seal the deal!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced example in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee for this placement is up to $10,000, depending on the ultimate use. This Publisher offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal. You’ll split any applicable sync fees 50/50. You’ll keep 100% of the Master rights and the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's Share for any placements they generate. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. NO DEADLINE EXTENSIONS for this request. Sorry folks, but we're on an extremely tight deadline, so please don't ask!  All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener that was hand-picked by the Music Publisher. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, April 30th, 2021.

This Company is searching for Songs in All Tempos that could be found on a playlist with the following references:

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

"All To Me" by Giveon

"Pick Up Your Feelings" by Jazmine Sullivan

"Streets" by Doja Cat

Please send top-tier R&B Songs with captivating melodies, memorable choruses, and a healthy dose of mainstream appeal. Your production should be generally competitive with the references and feature state-of-the-art virtual instruments and samples. Well-crafted lyrics paired with well-performed, sexy vocals could be the cherry on top for this pitch!

They didn’t specify any particular lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

A Bunch of HEARTFELT POP/R&B SONGS with Male or 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 Producer is looking for several Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got directly from him:

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

"Honey" by Kehlani

"At My Worst" by Pink Sweat$

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.

Please send well-crafted, modern Pop/R&B Songs with inviting rhythms, heartfelt melodies, and super memorable choruses. Both your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use should be top-notch and current-sounding. Honest, well-written lyrics accompanied by captivating, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

The estimated songwriter/producer's creative 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!

Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. 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 (PDT) on Wednesday, May 12th, 2021. TAXI # S210512RB

Rock

Return to List of Categories

EPIC MODERN ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for a wide range of $5,000 to $100,000 placements by a top-tier Music Licensing Company that's had placements in over 650 Blockbuster Film Campaigns!

NOTE: This Company is BRAND NEW to requesting music from TAXI's members, so it's unlikely you have anything in their catalog yet.

This Company is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the same general stylistic wheelhouse as the following references we got directly from them:

"Born Ready" by Zayde Wølf

"Watch Me" by The Phantoms

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company is looking more for Songwriter/Artists for ongoing relationships, rather than just a specific track for a specific placement. We suspect that if they hear a couple of your tracks and love what you're doing, they'll ask you to submit more tracks on an ongoing basis. You could also get added to their email list so you can respond to future briefs as they come in!

We recommend submitting 2 to 3 Songs so they can see if you have depth in your material.

Please submit top-notch Modern Rock Songs with an epic, larger-than-life sound and sonic gravitas that would work well in the context of Blockbuster Film Trailers. Your submissions should have gut-punching rhythms, great melodies, anthemic choruses, and tons of unapologetic energy. Instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best, but that doesn't mean you need to exactly emulate them -- just think of their instrumentation as a "foundation" of sorts. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are slick and modern. Compelling, well-performed vocals with a healthy dose of attitude paired with impactful, well-crafted lyrics could help you seal the deal with this Company!

NOTE: They asked us for Modern Rock, but we did take note that the two references they gave us are pretty "Stomp-Clappy," so being in that ballpark certainly couldn't hurt

Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing. 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.

Since this Company works in the Blockbuster Trailer industry, sync fees for placements they generate could range from $5,000 to $100,000 per track depending on duration used, media type, and territory. Those sound like some pretty sweet payouts to us!

This Company offers a NON-Exclusive, 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share for any placements they generate. 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.

ORIGINAL, 1963 to 1965-Style FIRST WAVE of BRITISH INVASION SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by an Indie Label with Major Distribution. This client is currently on the hunt for Songs to include in one of their incredibly popular compilations!

This Label is looking for original Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"You Can't Do That" by The Beatles

"When You Walk in the Room" by The Searchers

"Do Wah Diddy Diddy" by Manfred Mann

"Look Through Any Window" by The Hollies

"Glad All Over" by The Dave Clark Five

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

Please submit top-notch Songs that embody the vibe and sound of First Wave of British Invasion music between 1963 and 1965. Your submissions should have solid rhythms, rocking guitar parts, memorable melodies, and super catchy choruses. Your production should be high-quality, as well. Compelling, well-performed vocals (nothing pitchy!) complete with great two to three-part harmonies and era-authentic deliveries could help you seal with this Label.

Quoting the Company: "The quality in production and arrangement – the analog warmth – should reflect the era requested. We don't want to hear anything that sounds modern. Especially when it comes to compression – nothing too compressed will work."

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 Label on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened by a TAXI Screener who has a strong relationship with the Record Label Owner. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, May 2nd, 2021.

MODERN ROCK SONGS in a FOREIGN LANGUAGE with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-known Indie Label.

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

We purposely avoided putting references in this request as we felt they could be more misleading or limiting than helpful. This Label is open to virtually any contemporary Rock-based genre/style – from Pop/Rock, Metal, Alt-Rock, Indie Rock, Blues Rock, Punk, Hard Rock, Rap Rock, etc., etc. Just be sure your vocals are not in English for this pitch!

Please send top-notch, foreign-language Rock Songs with great grooves, compelling melodies, and engaging choruses. Your submissions should have confident, well-executed vocals that feel authentic to the region and genre you choose to submit. Solid, contemporary arrangements and musicianship are musts for this request, as well!

Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. We recommend that you submit at least TWO or THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

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; please include lyrics, photo, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Several FUN CLASSIC ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a few Direct-to-Producer/Music Supervisor placements for a HIT TV Show on a Major Broadcast Network.

This Producer/Music Supervisor needs fun, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Rock and Roll All Nite" by Kiss

"Nothin' But A Good Time" by Poison

"Thunderstruck" by AC/DC

Please submit recently-recorded, Classic-sounding Rock Songs that could get viewers in a good mood! Great rhythms, solid melodies, and super catchy choruses are all essential for this pitch. Instrumentation in the same general vein as the references and others like them will suit your submissions best – think rockin' guitars, kickin' drums, etc. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments and samples you decide to use are high-quality. Top your submissions off with some compelling vocals with great energy, and you could have what this Producer/Music Supervisor is looking for.

Lyric Tip: You'd be wise to stick with positive lyrics about having a good time for this pitch and avoid submitting anything that's melancholy, cynical, or sad.

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

The forwards for this pitch go directly to the Show’s Executive Producer/Music Supervisor, so this is a great opportunity! You’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording. You’ll also get any applicable sync fees and performance royalties! No publisher splits! You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Singer/Songwriter

Return to List of Categories

CONTEMPORARY SINGER/SONGWRITER ARTISTS with AMERICANA and/or FOLK INFLUENCE and Male or Female Vocals are needed by a U.K.-based Record Label. They're on the prowl for some exciting acts to sign, and we'd love for you to be one of them!!

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

"Changing Me" by Christina Gammeltoft

"Wild Forever" by Sean C Kennedy

"Feel Alive Again" by Molly Parden

Please send modern Singer/Songwriter Songs that showcase your ability to captivate an audience. This Label is looking for Americana and/or Folk-influenced acts, so tracks that incorporate instrumentation and chord structures from those genres will likely be more appealing. We think stripped-down performances and fuller productions could both work for this request. Whichever approach you decide to take, your Songs should be well-written, with compelling melodies, solid arrangements, and well-crafted lyrics. Having honest, well-executed vocals could be the final touch to get this Label excited about you and your music!

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 still want to hear you!

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

Your production and 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, and please 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 (PST) on Friday, May 7th, 2021. TAXI # S210507SS

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE POP/ROCK SONGS with Female Vocals that were RECORDED between 1975 and 1985 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references the Publisher gave us below, you might have exactly what they need:

"Call Me" by Blondie

"Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar

NOTE: Your songs do NOT have to sound like the references. They need to sound like they'd be at home on a PLAYLIST with the refs.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality, and you can submit old masters OR old demos.

Please submit well-written Pop/Rock Songs with great rhythms, memorable melodies, top-notch arrangements, and super catchy choruses. Your submissions should have instrumentation and production that's generally similar to the references and other artists like them. Confident, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal with this Publisher.

Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than great demo recordings! This Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period. This is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and Feature Films when music from a specific time period is needed.

The Company pays you upfront for the Master Rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization. Win-win! This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000 to $15,000 (or more!). Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the Songs signed by the Publisher.

Make sure your Songs were actually recorded between 1975 and 1985, 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 golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your Songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the Copyright and Master recordings to submit for this pitch.

Your submissions should have jazzy melodies, catchy choruses, and great rhythms. Genre/era-appropriate arrangements and instrumentation with fantastic, big-band musicianship are musts for this request, as well. Captivating, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal with this Library.

NOTE: 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. It doesn't have to be super hi-fi, but reasonably good, well-balanced recordings and mixes are needed.

Clean lyrics are preferred by this company!

This Company offers a NON-Exclusive, 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share.

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE MELODIC ROCK SONGS that were RECORDED between 1976 and 1995 with Male Vocals are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references the Publisher gave us below, you might have exactly what they need:

"Red Right Hand" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

"The Passenger" by Iggy Pop

"Lady Writer" by Dire Straits

"A Girl Like You" by Edwyn Collins

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality, and you can submit old masters OR old demos.

Please send top-notch Rock Songs with a generally similar moody sound and vibe to the references and other artists like them. Your submissions should have solid guitars, great rhythms, and memorable melodies. We noticed that all of the references have vocals that are slightly gritty and in a lower, baritone range, so vocals in that style will probably be the most appealing to this Publisher. No matter the delivery style, your vocals should be compelling and well-performed.

IMPORTANT: This Publisher is NOT looking for Grunge or Metal – listen to the references closely to understand what they want to hear.

Please submit top-notch Proto-Electronic/Experimental Songs with a generally similar sound and style to the references and other artists like them. Please be sure that your instrumentation, arrangements, and production are era and genre-appropriate. Your submissions can have minimal, robotic-sounding vocals or full melodies. Please be sure that your vocal deliveries are engaging and well-performed.

Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than great demo recordings! This Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period. This is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and Feature Films when music from a specific time period is needed.

The Company pays you upfront for the Master Rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright, and you keep the Writer’s Share and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization. Win-win! This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buyout deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000 to $15,000 (or more!). Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the Songs signed by the Publisher.

Make sure your Songs were actually recorded between 1970 and 1985, 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 golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

Your name needs to be on the copyright. Your Songs need to be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the Copyright and Master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit as many Songs 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 11:59 PM (PDT) on Sunday, May 9th, 2021. TAXI # S210509EX

A Bunch of UPBEAT, CELEBRATORY BALKAN SONGS with Male, Female, or Group Vocals are needed by a leading Music Licensing Company for lots of ongoing placements that will air on Middle Eastern-themed TV programs and Documentaries. They could air anywhere in the world, not just the Middle East! This company is distributed internationally by Universal Music!

TAXI Tip: Want to be a standout with little competition in a particular genre in this company's catalog? Here's your chance! Less competition = More possible placements!

This Company is looking for Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the references below we got directly from them:

"Lule Lule" by Barcelona Gipsy Balkan Orchestra

"Hermetico" by Balkan Beat Box

Quoting the Company: "We'd love to hear tracks that are upbeat, rhythmic, positive, mischievous, and energetic. The vocals need to be either non-lyrical or performed in Eastern European, Balkan, Arabic, or Hebrew languages." Do NOT submit Songs with English lyrics!

Please submit top-notch Songs with authentic-sounding Balkan melodies, rhythms, and arrangements. Your submissions can have a range of instrumentation, just be sure that they're in the same general range of the references. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are super high-quality and not stiff or dated. Passionate, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top. If your Songs could get the party started, send them in!

Lyrics that avoid reference to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this company, and ultimately the Music Supervisors who will use them in their scenes. 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 music you pitch for this opportunity is 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 Songs as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, April 29th, 2021. TAXI # S210429BK
