Adult Contemporary

Return to List of Categories

HEARTBREAKING ADULT CONTEMPORARY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed pretty quickly for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Supervisor is on the hunt for Down-Tempo Songs that would work well in place of “Breathe Me,” which is currently temped in:

"Breathe Me" by Sia

The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

NOTE: Although the referenced track has a Female Vocal, the Music Supervisor wants to hear Songs with Male Vocals only.

Quoting the Music Supervisor: "We like the vibe of 'Breathe Me,' but we'd like a Male Vocal."

TAXI Tip: "The scene occurs moments after a tragic event, and the main character’s life is falling apart."

Please submit current-sounding A/C Songs that have a similar sense of heartbreak you'll hear in the reference Song. Be sure that your submissions have well-crafted melodies, super strong choruses, and top-notch productions. All the elements of your Songs – melodies, productions, vocal performances, and lyrics – should highlight and support the depth of gravity in this scene. This character's world just fell apart, so your Songs should reflect that!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use the reference as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee is (up to) $1,000, depending on the placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the License Fee and any applicable performance royalties. No Publisher splits. 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. 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 by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, August 11th, 2020. TAXI # S200811HB

ADULT CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS or BANDS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s eagerly looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its roster.

They’re looking for acts that would appeal to fans of artists like:

“Someone You Loved” by Lewis Capaldi

"You Say" by Lauren Daigle

“Say You Won't Let Go” by James Arthur

Quoting the Record Label: "We're on the lookout for talented artists with a heartfelt originality and uniqueness to them. The material must have an uplifting or soothing quality."

Please submit Adult Contemporary Songs that highlight your ability to captivate an audience musically, vocally, and lyrically. Simple performances with just acoustic guitar/piano and vocals can do the trick for this request! You can also submit Songs with fuller arrangements. Be sure to have expressive, polished vocal performances that are on par with the vibe of the references.

TAXI Tip: You’d be smart to submit 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!

Your productions and recording quality need to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. You’d be wise to highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have. If you’re a new artist or band and don’t yet have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the Songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics, photos and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener and must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT), on Wednesday, August 12th, 2020.  TAXI # S200812AC

CONTEMPORARY, EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT SONGS with a SOULFUL Flair and Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Film/TV Music Publisher for an (up to) $2,000 placement in a Digital/Online Commercial for a Social Media Company.

NOTE: They like the idea of having a Female singer for the Ad, but if they hear something with Male vocals that works, they're open to considering it as well.

As far as the Genre goes, they didn’t give us many parameters. Our client told us “They want something that’s Soulful and Dreamy. Hip-Hop doesn't work, but maybe something that’s Indie/Soul, R&B, AC/Soul, or Electronic Soul/R&B, would do the trick.”

Please listen to the following references to get an idea of what could work for this request:

"Say So" by Doja Cat

"Can’t Feel My Face" by The Weeknd

"Make Me Feel" by Janelle Monáe

"Worship” by Lizzo

Please send well-produced Songs that embody the soul, vibe, and style  in the references above and other Songs in that general ballpark. Your instrumentation and productions can vary, but should be current, fresh, and original (they’re not looking for clones or soundalikes). Be sure your vocal performances have soulful deliveries and are well-executed from start to finish.

LYRIC Tip: We’ve been told that they're looking for encouraging lyric themes about acceptance, and/or community, but don’t limit yourself to just those ideas! They are also open to considering other positive lyric themes.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will be the most appealing to this Music Publisher and Ad Agency. 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.

The estimated license fee for this placement is up to $2,000, depending on the ultimate use. This request is for a digital/online ad, hence the relatively low creative fee (when compared to a broadcast Commercial).

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 Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publishing 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. 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 Tuesday, August 4th, 2020.

Christmas/Holiday

Return to List of Categories

Lots of ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Major European Media Company for a variety of Non-Exclusive opportunities!

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

“Underneath The Tree” by Kelly Clarkson

“Shake Up Christmas” by Train

“True Love” by Ariana Grande

“Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber

NOTE: Songs can be in just about any popular, commercially viable Genre: Singer/Songwriter, R&B/Soul, Pop, Rock, Country, EDM, Hip-Hop, etc., etc., etc.

Please submit original Christmas Songs that capture the essence of the holiday season! Your submissions should be well-written with great melodies and memorable choruses. Your productions can range from simple acoustic/vocal performances, to more fully developed arrangements. Please be sure your vocals are performed well from top to bottom!

TAXI Tip: Little Christmas-y accents like sleigh bells, tubular bells, or glockenspiel could give your submissions some added Christmas cheer, but they’re not absolutely necessary. If you add some of those to your Songs, be careful to not get carried away ;-) Experience tells us that less is often more in this context.

Lyrics should be consistent with themes commonly heard in holiday music. Non-Religious lyrics often get more sync placements because they have a wider range of possibilities, but religious lyrics are also fine to pitch. Fun, festive, nostalgic, warm, family-friendly themes typically get licensed more frequently!

Quoting the Company: “Only artists/writers affiliated with ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and APRA-AMCOS are eligible to submit their music for this opportunity.”

This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE Deal, so you will keep 100% of all Composition and Master Rights. 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. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, August 20th, 2020. TAXI # S200820XM

ORIGINAL HOLIDAY SONGS (in all Genres) with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-connected Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

NOTE: Songs can be in just about any popular, commercially viable Genre: Singer/Songwriter, R&B/Soul, Pop, Rock, Country, EDM, Hip-Hop, etc., etc., etc.

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

"Home for the Holidays" by Sabrina Carpenter

“Winter Things” by Ariana Grande

"Mother's Spiritual" by Idina Menzel

Lyric Tip: They're looking to hear Universal holiday themes that don't have Christmas-specific lyrics (i.e Reindeers, Elves, Santa Claus, etc.) We've been told that these Songs will be used in various holiday scenes and scenarios, so they need to have general lyrics about (but not limited to) family, togetherness, and home.

Please submit Original Holiday Songs (no covers) that deliver a festive sound, style, and tone. Your submissions should have solid productions, engaging melodies, and super memorable choruses. Instrumentation can vary from simple acoustic/vocal performances to full-blown productions, depending on the genres you’re submitting. "A Capella Group" versions can work as well. Having polished vocal performances could very well increase your chances of nailing this request!

TAXI Tip: Per the client, little accents like a glockenspiel or tubular bells could be a good way to give your submissions some additional Holiday cheer, but we’ve typically found that it’s best not to overdo them! Less is often more. ;-)

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

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 Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publishing 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.

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

Country

Return to List of Categories

Original VINTAGE COUNTRY SONGS that were Recorded between 1990 and 1999 with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Publisher that gets a lot of Film, TV, and Commercial placements.

NOTE: We purposely passed on including references as this client is open to material in all Country Sub-Genres, including (but not limited to): Bluegrass, Country Rock, Honky Tonk, Country Pop, etc. as long as the Songs were recorded between 1990 and 1999.

For this pitch, you can submit very simple, stripped-down Songs, or you can submit more fully arranged productions. Although this request is for vintage material, your Songs must still be firing on all cylinders – engaging melodies, great lyrics, and well-performed vocals are all required for this request!

NOTE: Please submit old masters only. Authenticity is key! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC OLD-SCHOOL RECORDINGS from the 1990s.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality will work just fine. They’re interested in finding music with reasonably good fidelity that sounds authentic to the time period.

Click here to check out this list of The Best Country Songs of The '90s to get inspired.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal with a 2-year reversion (they will also consider NON-Exclusive Deals). Sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. If you’re inclined to sign an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material that’s already signed with other Companies, Catalogs, Publishing, or Administration deals, including any online distribution companies such as DistroKid, TuneCore, or CD Baby. Using those companies is totally fine for the distribution of your music, but the publishing or admin. (monetization) deals can preclude you from entering into publishing deals with most other companies! You need to own or control your Copyright and Master Recordings.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Time permitting, someone from the Publishing Company may screen some or all of the submissions. Your submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, August 10th, 2020. TAXI # S200810NT

Lots of MODERN COUNTRY or COUNTRY POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very active and fast-growing Music Licensing Company that specializes in music for BIG TV Commercials.

This client is looking for several (we'd guess about 10) Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could fit in the general ballpark of the following references:

“10,000 Hours” by Dan + Shay, Justin Bieber

“Better Luck Next Time” by Kelsea Ballerini

“Beer Can’t Fix” by Thomas Rhett ft. Jon Pardi

IMPORTANT NOTE: The bar will be really high for this request, and only the best of the best will be forwarded. Our A&R team will have a simple mandate: Is it GREAT? Is it super current? Can you imagine hearing it in Film and TV? Does it sound ready to go as it is? And of course, does it match the style requested?

Please submit Contemporary Country Songs that sound like they could be on a playlist with what's on today’s modern Country radio stations and/or charts. Be sure your submissions have a Contemporary Country production sound with instrumentation that’s commonly found in Modern Country music. Songs with catchy melodies, great lyrics, mainstream-sounding choruses, and polished vocal performances should help you nail this request.

They didn't request specific lyric themes; however, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing for sync placements. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share.

UPBEAT INDIE SONGS with Male Vocals are needed pretty quickly for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Music Supervisor is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would work well in place of “Play It Right,” which is currently temped in:

"Play It Right" by Sylvan Esso

The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

NOTE: Although the reference has Female Vocals, they would prefer Songs with Male Vocals.

Important Tip from the Music Supervisor: "This Song will be used in a scene with two guys hanging out by a lake. Music blares out a car window. The scene is an exciting moment for one of the guys, so there should be some build to the Song as heard in the Sylvan Esso track. One character feels relieved and lucky, like he just landed a shiny new job."

Please submit well-crafted Indie Songs that have a bit of a quirky vibe and sound that are loosely in the wheelhouse of the reference Song. Your Songs should have top-notch productions, captivating melodies, and strong, Indie-style vocal performances. If you want a more in-depth look at how to get great Indie-style vocals, check out this episode of TAXI TV!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use the reference as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee is (up to) $1,000, depending on the placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the License Fee and any applicable performance royalties.

“Strangers” by Sigrid

"Peach" by Broods

“everything i wanted” by Billie Eilish

Instrumental

Return to List of Categories

Several CONTEMPORARY POP INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Production Music Library with lots of great placements in TV Commercials, Sports Programming, and Movie/Video Game Trailers.

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (#D200629NS), but the company wants to hear MORE material. If you submitted to listing #D200629NS, please send in different material this time around.

CHECK THIS OUT: If you’re looking to diversify and get your music in a globally recognized (and distributed) catalog, this company might be just what the doctor ordered! Several TAXI members have reported placements outside the United States as a result of being signed with this awesome company!

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that would fall within the general stylistic range of the following references:

“Like It Is” by Kygo, Zara Larsson, Tyga

"Small Talk" by Katy Perry

“Nice to Meet Ya” by Meghan Trainor ft. Nicki Minaj

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

Please submit well-crafted Pop Instrumentals that have a mainstream sound, style, and vibe. Be sure your submissions have great melodies, captivating drum rhythms, and an overall polished sound. You’d also be wise to give your submissions 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.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is not already signed with other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, August 22nd, 2020. TAXI # S200822PP

PERCUSSION-Based INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Successful Publisher with an awesome track record of really BIG placements in TV Commercials!

This Publisher is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals and/or Cues in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

ADT Commercial

“Black Skinhead” (Instrumental) by Kanye West

McDonalds Commercial

Please submit driving, primarily percussive Instrumentals and/or Cues that could work well in the context of a National Ad Campaign. Your submissions can include everything from (but not limited to): Stomps, Claps, Slaps, Snaps, Taps, and Bangs, etc. You can include some additional instrumentation, but the majority of your Instrumentals should be Percussion-based.

TAXI Tip: Per the client, “please try not to rely solely upon loops.”

WORLD MUSIC INSTRUMENTAL ARTISTS/COMPOSERS are 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, 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.

Please send well-composed World Instrumentals that set a calming, relaxing, mood and vibe. Your submissions should stick to a singular vibe and sound throughout the each Instrumental to keep your pieces cohesive from beginning to end. Authenticity in your instrumentation, performances, and styles are all going to be very important for this request. Assuming that you’ll be using mostly 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!

Quoting the Record Label: "We're on the lookout for talented artists, with a heartfelt originality and uniqueness to them. The material must have an uplifting or soothing quality."

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 composer and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an amazing sound and the Instrumentals to back it up, they are still willing to give you a listen!

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 in order to land a deal with them, just a suggestion!

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 (PDT) on Monday, August 3rd, 2020. TAXI # S200803WM

ELECTRONIC-Driven INDIE POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed pretty quickly for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Supervisor is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would work well in place of “Still Alive,” which is currently temped in:

"Still Alive" by A R I Z O N A

NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

IMPORTANT Insider Info from the Music Supervisor: "This Song will be used for a late-night drunken make-out scene. I should mention the people making out do not have an emotional connection. The music should be party music, with a sexual vibe going on."

Think steamy and lusty, without being outright sexual in nature.

Please submit top-notch Electronic-driven Pop Songs that have a cool Indie style and sound. Think thumping beats, soaring melodies, polished productions, and super-catchy hooks if you want to nail this request. Your vocal performances should be passionate with distinct, Indie Pop-style deliveries.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use the reference as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee is (up to) $1,000, depending on the placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the License Fee and any applicable performance royalties. No Publisher splits. 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. 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 TAXI.

UPBEAT PARTY SONGS with Female Vocals are needed pretty quickly for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Supervisor is on the hunt for Up-Tempo Songs that would work well in place of “Karaoke” which is currently temped in:

"Karaoke" by Big Freedia feat Lizzo

NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

IMPORTANT Insider Tip from the Music Supervisor: "This should be up-tempo party music. The scene is a rowdy teen party with booze. Female vocalists only, please."

Please submit bombastic, upbeat Songs that would feel at home on the stereo at a teen's house party when their parents aren't home. You could also think of what would be playing from a car stereo on the way to the party! Your submissions should have driving beats, catchy choruses, and well-performed vocals with the same strong, in-your-face sound as the reference Song.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Although the reference is a Pop/Hip-Hop track, the Music Supervisor says that they aren't necessarily looking for Hip-Hop. Dance, Hip-Hop, or Rap could all work for this request. Focus on nailing that teen-party vibe, first and foremost, not necessarily matching the genre.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use the reference as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT: The Music Library's CEO told us that these Songs will ultimately be sent directly to TV Networks! In other words, lots of chances for syncs with these!

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could fit stylistically with the following references:

“Wannabe" by Spice Girls

"S Club Party" by S Club 7

“Say You'll Be There" by Spice Girls

IMPORTANT NOTE: They're looking to hear real British singers only for this request.

Please send British Teen Pop Songs that fit the ‘90s vibe and style of the references above and others like them. Your Songs should have solid melodies, catchy choruses, and authentic, era-appropriate productions. Make sure your vocals are well-performed, with solid deliveries that sound like they were plucked straight from the '90s!

TAXI TIP: While it is not an absolute requirement, the client would prefer to hear Songs that were actually recorded in the 1990s. If you're submitting newer recordings, your submissions should still be reminiscent of the music released during that period.

They didn’t specify any lyric themes; however, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are recommended as they’re easier to use. 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. Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

They’re looking for Mid-Tempo Songs that would fit on a playlist with the following references (which we got from the client):

"Phenomenal" by I Am ORFA

"Can't Get Enough Of Myself" by Santigold feat. BC Unido

"Smile" by Katy Perry

"No New Friends" by LSD ft. Labrinth, Sia, Diplo

Quoting the Music Publisher: "Please avoid any EDM as well as anything with an '80s feel."

Please send TV commercial-friendly Songs that have an emotionally upbeat sound, vibe, and style. The productions of your Songs should be groove-oriented, with danceable rhythms, and plenty of ear candy throughout. They ARE open to Instrumental-driven tracks with sparse, minimal vocal flourishes as well as Songs with full vocal performances. In either case, your vocals should have a great, stand-out tone and should be well-performed from beginning to end.

NOTE: We know this ad will feature choreographed dance routines, so Songs that have a bright, fresh, and energetic style are needed. Songs that sound more like records and less like stock music library tracks will probably work best!

No lyric themes were specified, but you’d be wise to lean toward emotionally uplifting lyrics that are confident and inspiring. Empowerment themes often work well for this type of placement, although they didn't specifically ask for that. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity will be the most appealing to this Music Publisher and Ad Agency.

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

"RITMO" by Black Eyed Peas, J Balvin

“Taki Taki” by DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna, Cardi B

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.

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

Several HAPPY HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very active and fast-growing Music Licensing Company that specializes in music for big TV Commercials.

This client is looking for several (we'd guess about 10) Mid-To-Up-Tempo Songs that could fit in the general ballpark of the following references:

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

“Just A Picture” by KYLE ft. Kehlani

“Black SpiderMan” by Logic ft. Damian Lemar Hudson

"Angels" by Chance The Rapper ft. Saba

Please submit fun Rap/Hip-Hop Songs that have an emotionally upbeat sound and style. Your recordings should have insanely cool beats, with great lyrics and really memorable choruses! Be sure to have a confident vocal delivery that exudes the kind of swagger you’d hear from the referenced artists above, as well as other acts in that wheelhouse.

They didn't request specific lyric themes; however, the lyrics of your Songs should be positive and fun. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing for sync placements.  Do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for texture, tone, and overall vibe. Please avoid any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast quality is needed.

This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You’ll keep 100% of the original copyright. You must own or control your Masters 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 by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, August 6th, 2020.  TAXI # S200806HS

CONTEMPORARY SOUL or RAP/HIP-HOP SONGS with Lyrics about "Needing Money" and Male or Female Vocals are needed pretty quickly for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Music Supervisor is on the hunt for a Mid-to-Up-Tempo Song that would work well in place of “I Need A Dollar," which is currently temped in:

"I Need A Dollar" by Aloe Blacc

NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

Quote from the Music Supervisor: "We need a Song that talks about needing money to get by. Strong lyrics, good groove, energetic – like 'I Need A Dollar.' Could be contemporary R&B/Soul or Rap/Hip-Hop."

Please submit Contemporary Soul or Rap/Hip-Hop Songs that embody the vibe of the referenced track. Your submissions should have infectious grooves, catchy hooks, and top-notch productions. Like the Music Supervisor said, they're looking for lyric themes that revolve around "needing money," so make sure to keep that in mind when you're crafting your Songs.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee is (up to) $1,000, depending on the placement. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording, plus you’ll also get 100% of the License Fee and any applicable performance royalties.

CHILL R&B SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed pretty quickly for a (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Music Supervisor is on the hunt for Songs that would work well in place of “Pink + White,” which is currently temped in:

"Pink + White" by Frank Ocean

NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

Important Tip from the Music Supervisor: "This scene is two teens in a budding romance, hanging out under an overpass, painting graffiti. They are relaxed, enjoying comfortable silence, and a close bond."

Please submit great R&B Songs that generally embody the mellow vibe of the reference Song. The Music Supervisor has stressed that the vibe of your submission is key for nailing this pitch. Your Songs should have laidback beats, great lyrics, and entrancing melodies. Be sure your vocals are well-performed and help to establish the chill atmosphere that the Music Supervisor needs to underscore for this scene's vibe.

TAXI Tip: A lot of what makes "Pink + White" feel so chill and laidback is its time signature (6/8). We don't think that your submissions necessarily have to be in 6/8, but it may be a great way to get closer to the vibe the Music Supervisor is looking for!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form.

They’re searching for EMOTIONALLY UPLIFTING, Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that fit the vibe and style found in these references, which the client gave us:

“Never Break” by John Legend

“Rise Up” by Andra Day

Please submit contemporary Songs with emotionally uplifting, touching melodies and lyrics, and memorable, infectious choruses. Your production approaches can vary, however, it’s apparent that the client seems to favor relatively stripped-down piano-driven arrangements.

Lyric Tip: Lyrically, they need empowering themes about perseverance, staying true to yourself, etc. Heartfelt, believable vocal performances that really connect with listeners will likely be best.

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

ORIGINAL 1970s-Style FUNK/SOUL PROTEST SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the Publishing division of a well-known Label for Film and TV placements.

They’re looking for original Songs in All Tempos that could be found on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to): The Isley Brothers, Marvin Gaye, Edwin Starr, The Chambers Brothers, etc., etc., etc.

Please listen to the following references (which we got from the client) to get an idea of what could work for this request:

“Fight the Power, Pts. 1 & 2” by The Isley Brothers

“What's Going On” by Marvin Gaye

“War” by Edwin Starr

NOTE: This Record Label would prefer to hear original vintage pieces that actually date back to the 1970s, 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. They want to hear a Raw and Real performance by killer musicians. Submissions CANNOT sound modern, clean, and/or computer-processed.

Please submit great Songs that capture the essence of the Funk/Soul music being released at that time. Your submissions should have authentic instrumentation, funky bass grooves, and classic-sounding productions that sound like they were plucked straight from the '70s! Your vocals should be well-performed from top to bottom, with soulful deliveries full of attitude!

Quoting the client: "Vocal performances are the key to getting these Songs across. We want Songs that really capture the meaning and emotional power of the words."

LYRIC Tip: Your lyrics need to be consistent with themes commonly heard in protest Songs during these eras. Lyrics with concepts about (but not limited to): anti-war, protest/protesting, peace, the need for change, injustice, fighting the power, and standing up for your rights should help you nail this request! Be sure to also keep your lyrics relevant to the '60s/'70s (no talk of cell phones, internet, etc.).

Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are needed for 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.

The recording 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 (PDT) on Sunday, August 9th, 2020. TAXI # S200809FN

The client is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would work well in place of “I Hate Myself for Loving You," which is currently temped in:

"I Hate Myself for Loving You" by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

Quote from the Music Supervisor: "The Joan Jett Song has good lyrics and vibe, but the Song we need should be more contemporary-sounding.

TAXI Tip: The Song will be playing in the background of a hole-in-the-wall bar scene."

Please submit contemporary Rock Songs that would sound at home blasting from a jukebox in a local dive bar. Like the Music Supervisor said above, they like the vibe of "I Hate Myself for Loving You," but they're looking for tracks that sound current, not dated. Capture Joan Jett's attitude and edginess and pair it with authentic-sounding modern Rock productions and instrumentation, and you could be on the right track! Be sure your vocals are well-performed and have a ton of Rock swagger.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form.

They didn’t specify any lyric themes; however, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are recommended as they’re easier to use. Do NOT copy the referenced bands or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

Singer/Songwriter

DARK, CONTEMPORARY SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed pretty quickly for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Music Supervisor is on the hunt for Down-Tempo Songs that would work well in place of “Hurt,” which is currently temped in:

"Hurt" by Johnny Cash

NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

Quote from the Music Supervisor: "We'd like a more youthful and contemporary take on this (not country). What we like about 'Hurt' is how dark the lyrics are and that it inspires reflection."

To repeat, they DO NOT want Country Songs for this pitch!

Please submit modern, Singer/Songwriter Songs with the dark, reflective vibe of the referenced track. Your submissions should have well-crafted melodies, powerful productions, and emotional vocal performances that will make the listener feel like their heart's been ripped out of their chest.

TAXI Tip: In this scene, the character's life is falling apart, so your lyrics should be dark and painful to illustrate that feeling of helplessness.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use the reference ONLY as a general 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.

REFLECTIVE SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed pretty quickly for an (up to) $1,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placement in an Independent Feature Film.

The Supervisor is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would work well in place of “Crosses” which is currently temped in:

"Crosses" by José González

NOTE: The Music Supervisor is NOT looking for clones or soundalikes! Similar tempo, feel, and overall vibe? Yes. Clones? No!

Important Tip from the Music Supervisor: "'Crosses' is good for this scene because it doesn't distract from a dark and heavy event that just took place in the scene before, yet it evokes self reflection and personal crisis."

Please submit Singer/Songwriter Songs that capture the melancholy vibe of the reference Song. Simple performances with just acoustic guitar and vocals could easily do the trick for this request, but a small, subtle ensemble could potentially work as well. Your submissions should be well-crafted, with engaging melodies, and emotionally compelling vocal performances.

IMPORTANT Lyric Tip from the Music Supervisor: "It would be good to not send Songs with lyrics that tell a clear storyline, because there is no dialogue in our scene, so every lyric will be heard clearly. The stories in the Songs, can't compete with the story unfolding on-screen."

In other words, send Songs that support the self-reflection vibe, without telling a story!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places could make your Songs easier to place. Do NOT copy the referenced artist in any way, shape, or form. Use the reference as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do not submit any material with unauthorized samples of other artists’ Songs, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Coffeehouse-Style SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Music Library with lots of great placements in Film and TV!

They’re looking for Songs in All Tempos that would fit well on a playlist with the following references:

“Say You Won't Let Go” by James Arthur

"Sweet Creature" by Harry Styles

"Bubbly" by Colbie Caillat

Please submit Acoustic Guitar-based Singer/Songwriter Songs with engaging melodies, great lyrics, and compelling vocal performances. Instrumentation can vary for this request, but should be predominantly acoustic-driven and in the general stylistic ballpark of the references. The arrangements of your Songs can be as simple as acoustic guitar and vocals. A small, subtle ensemble or band behind the singer could work as well.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing for sync placements. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. 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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, August 3rd, 2020. TAXI # S200803FH

ACOUSTIC-BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER ARTISTS or BANDS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s eagerly looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its roster.

They’re looking for acts that would appeal to fans of artists like:

“I Won't Give Up” by Jason Mraz

"That Year" by Brandi Carlile

“Let It Go" by James Bay 

Quoting the Record Label: "We're on the lookout for talented artists with a heartfelt originality and uniqueness to them.

Please submit contemporary-sounding Singer/Songwriter Songs that showcase your ability to captivate an audience. Simple performances with just acoustic guitar and vocals can do the trick for this request! You can also submit Songs with fuller arrangements. Having great, heartfelt, vocal performances should help you get this Record Label’s attention!

You’d be smart to submit 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!

Your productions and recording quality need to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. You’d be wise to highlight any touring/live show experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have. If you’re a new artist or band and don’t yet have much of a story or track record yet, but you do have an amazing sound and the Songs to back it up, they’d still like to hear you!

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include photos and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener and must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT), on Monday, August 10th, 2020. TAXI # S200810UP

Vintage

Return to List of Categories

ORIGINAL VINTAGE SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS that were Recorded between 1970 and 1989 with Male or Female 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 below, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

“Child Of Mine” by Carole King

"Longer" by Dan Fogelberg

“Big Yellow Taxi” Joni Mitchell

“Fire and Rain” by James Taylor

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

Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good 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 1989, 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 Thursday, August 6th, 2020. TAXI # S200806VT

Original, VINTAGE SONGS that were Recorded in the 1970s with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Publisher that gets a lot of Film, TV, and Commercial placements.

We purposely passed on including references as this client is open to material in all (commercially viable) styles and genres – as long as the Songs were recorded between 1970 and 1979.

Please submit Original Songs that sound like they could have been on the charts during the 1970s. You can submit very simple, stripped-down Songs, or you can submit more fully arranged productions. Although this request is for Vintage material, your Songs must still be firing on all cylinders – engaging melodies, great lyrics, and well-performed vocals are all needed for this request!

NOTE: Please submit old masters only. Authenticity is key! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC VINTAGE RECORDINGS from the '70s.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality will suffice. They’re interested in finding music with reasonably good fidelity that sounds authentic to the time period.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal with a 2-year reversion (they will also consider NON-Exclusive Deals). Sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. If you’re inclined to sign an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material that’s already signed with other Companies, Catalogs, or Publishing or Administration deals, including any online distribution companies such as DistroKid, TuneCore, or CD Baby. Using those companies is totally fine for the distribution of your music, but the publishing or admin. (monetization) deals can preclude you from entering into publishing deals with most other companies! You need to own or control your Copyright and Master Recordings.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Time permitting, someone from the Publishing Company may screen some or all of the submissions. Your submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, August 17th, 2020.  TAXI # S200817VT
