He's diligently searching for HIT Songs in All Tempos that would appeal to fans of these referenced acts and other acts that might appear on a playlist with them:

“When You Love Somebody” by Robin Thicke

"Preach" by John Legend

“Beyond” by Leon Bridges

Please submit commercial-sounding Urban A/C Songs with awesome melodies, solid Song structures, and super memorable/compelling choruses. Your production approaches can vary, but should incorporate some organic instrumentation. Be sure to have well-executed vocal performances if you want to get this A-Lister and his label excited about cutting your Songs.

NOTE: This artist is willing to consider either stripped-down or fully produced demos! If you're submitting stripped-down demos (piano/vocal or guitar/vocal), your Songs still need to sound like HITS in the making!

TAXI Tip: Pull out your best for this as the bar will be very high for this request. But man, oh man, if you get a cut on this guy's record it could be career-changing!

Your recording quality needs to be good enough to represent your Songs well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD.

FUN, HIGH-ENERGY POP or POP/ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for an (up to) $200 NON-Exclusive, Marketing Agency placement in a Digital/Online Commercial!

They’re looking for Up-Tempo Songs that would fit on a playlist with the following references:

“Something New” by Tiggs Da Author

“Go Get It” by ZBRAS

“All Brand New” by Danger Twins

“Turn Up The Heat” by Juliet Roberts

NOTE: It’s important that your Songs have great energy and positive lyrics!

Please submit well-crafted, fun Pop Songs that have an "advertising-friendly” sound and lots of energy! Be sure your Songs have great melodies, captivating drumbeats, and a polished sound. Having confident, well-executed vocal performances could also help your chances of nailing this request.

Although they didn’t request specific lyric themes, they would like to hear short, catchy phrases that are positive, uplifting, and fun. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee will be between $100-$200, depending on the ultimate placement. This request is for digital/online ads, hence the relatively low creative fee (when compared to a Broadcast Commercial).

This is a Non-Exclusive Marketing Agency placement, so you’ll keep 100% ownership of your Copyright and Master Recording. You’ll also get 100% of the Master License 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. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener.

Return to List of Categories

CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a super well-connected A&R Executive for a HUGE, chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning artist that’s working on her next album!

They're looking for Songs in All Tempos that could be found on the same playlist as the following references that the A&R Executive gave to us:

“Cry Pretty” by Carrie Underwood

“Drinking Alone” by Carrie Underwood

NOTE: All tempos are fine, but they already have a ton of ballads so Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs are very much preferred.

The bar is going to be very high for this Listing! If you happen to land a cut with this artist, it could be a real career-changer!

Please submit incredibly well-crafted, Country Songs with huge melodies and killer lyrics that can compete with Nashville's best songwriters. Be sure your productions are contemporary-sounding, with a bit of a Pop-leaning style and sound. If you want to get this A&R Executive and the Artist herself excited about cutting your Songs, then your vocal performances should be strong with an honest Country flavor. It makes it easier for the artist to imagine herself singing it. Once you've accomplished that, your chances of getting the cut go up exponentially!

Stripped-Down demos and full productions are both okay to submit – as long as your Songs are great and your recordings are clean, clear, and well-balanced! Recording quality needs to be good enough to represent your Songs well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a Nashville-based TAXI A&R person. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Sunday, March 1st, 2020.  TAXI # S200301CS

CONTEMPORARY ELECTRONIC DANCE SONGS and/or INSTRUMENTALS with Hooks are needed by a Top International DJ for his next Single! He is distributed internationally by Universal, and he has accumulated more than 100,000,000 Spotify streams. Yep, that says One-Hundred-Million!

They’re looking for Songs (and/or Instrumentals with Hooks) that have a contemporary Electronic sound coupled with fresh rhythms, melodies, and lyrics. Your Song arrangements can use a typical A/B/A/B structure, but it isn't necessary. EDM-style Instrumentals with sparely-placed simple chants and melodic vocal phrases throughout could also work for this opportunity.

TAXI Tip: Feel free to push the boundaries a bit in your productions! Engaging beats with unique, current sounds could help you grab this DJ’s attention.

This act will likely remix or rework the Songs and/or Instrumentals, and it’s an actual possibility that they may keep your vocals on the Tracks! The deal will be negotiated between you, the DJ, and the Record Label, but it’s pretty obvious that the deal is likely going to be a co-writing agreement!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your Songs and/or Instrumentals well. Please submit as many Songs and/or Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. Include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020.  TAXI # S200303RD

TAXI Tip: You can also use some simple, non-lyrical vocal chants to add more "in-your-face" energy to your track. Please do not submit Full Vocal Performance Songs, as only vocal elements like, “whoas,” “yeahs,” “heys,” “woo-hoos,” etc. will be accepted.

Your submissions should stick pretty close to 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best for this pitch.

POSITIVE INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed for TV COMMERCIALS by a High-End Music Library with countless credits in Feature Films, TV Shows, and Commercials.

NOTE: We recently ran this request as TAXI Listing #Y191212FR. The client LOVED what we sent them, but they didn’t get enough material, so they asked us to run this request again to see if we could find them even more. If you submitted to #Y191212FR, please submit different material this time around!

They’re looking for Instrumental Cues in All Tempos that would fall within the stylistic wheelhouse of the references we got from our client:

Positive Ad-Friendly Examples (Dropbox playlist)

Please submit well-composed Instrumental Cues that have an "advertisement-friendly sound and vibe. Your productions should be driven by organic-based instrumentation and should have some development as they progress.

The key elements that make this Music Library happy are:

  • Cues can have a Positive mood (they can be “warm” and/or  “motivational”, but ALWAYS positive).
  • Cues MUST have good edit points.
  • Cues must be Library "friendly" (i.e. - a clear theme right from the start. Proper mood and pacing).
  • Instrumental Cues can have an ABAB structure, but certainly don't need to (check out the referenced examples).
  • Prominent leads/solos are not needed. Each theme/motif should be found more in the arrangement/chord progressions (again, listen to the examples).
  • High-quality compositions, tones, and performances are all required.

All submissions should be approximately 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded, Buttoned endings are preferred. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company is only interested in signing material from composers who have worked with music libraries and music licensing companies in the past, and understand how those deals work. If you don't understand the drill on library deals, they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

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

Because this is an Exclusive deal, the music you submit for this pitch cannot already be signed with other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Composition rights. Please send as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Saturday, February 29th, 2020.  TAXI # S200229SN

Guitar-Driven ROCK BANDS and ARTISTS with Male Vocals are needed by the CEO of a hard-working Indie Record Label that’s looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its eclectic roster.

They’re on the prowl for some great new acts that would appeal to the fans of artists/bands like:

“Feed the Machine” by Nickelback

"Nothing Could Come Between Us" by Theory of a Deadman

"Torn in Two" by Breaking Benjamin

Quoting the Label's CEO: “I'm looking for an act that has good Songs, but isn’t necessarily a commercial radio-type act for a small but well-funded indie label. I am interested in finding an act that is looking for or is open to working with an established producer. Age is not an issue. If the act plays live and the band's leader (or solo act) is male, that would be great, but it’s not a hard parameter.”

While the client would prefer that the act is SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-based, it's not a necessity. If you live someplace else, but you have an amazing sound and the Songs to back it up, they would still like to hear from you!

Please send them original guitar-driven Rock Songs that fire on all cylinders. Your submissions should have Rock-based instrumentation, compelling melodies, and well-performed vocals that have a unique and identifiable quality. The bar will be high for this request, so please only send your very best!

Your production and recording quality need to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. You’d be wise to highlight your touring, live shows, fan base, and impressive sales or streaming figures in your bio, although it is not a requirement.

Please submit TWO or THREE Songs, to show depth in your catalog. Submit online or per CD, and 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 Wednesday, March 4th, 2020. TAXI # S200304GR

CONTEMPORARY INDIE SINGER/SONGWRITER ARTISTS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a U.K.-based Record Label that's eager to find its next breakout act.

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

"Flags" by SYML

“Happiest Year" by Jaymes Young

“Today” by Mura Masa (with Tirzah)

Please send well-crafted Indie Singer/Songwriter Songs that showcase your ability to captivate a cool, hip audience. Your submissions should have haunting melodies, engaging lyrics, and really strong choruses that will grab this label's attention. Your vocal performances should have distinctive, Indie-style deliveries. Instrumentation can be as simple as acoustic guitar/vocals or piano/vocals. A small, subtle ensemble/band behind the singer could work as well.

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 absolutely amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS – RECORDED in the 1970s – with 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 following references (and others in that general stylistic ballpark), you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

“Child Of Mine” by Carole King

“Anticipation” by Carly Simon

“Big Yellow Taxi” Joni Mitchell

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality for this pitch, and you can submit old masters or old demos. Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than a good demo recording. The Publisher is much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period. They are 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 Publisher pays you upfront for the master recording rights.

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 in the 1970s, otherwise this company cannot use them! They DO NOT want any material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, 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.

Please submit authentic-sounding Brazilian Songs that are rhythmically, lyrically, and melodically engaging from beginning to end. Your submissions should have instrumentation you’d typically hear in Brazilian Music; both acoustic and electronic elements can work as long as they sound authentic and genuine!

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

This Company offers both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

CONTEMPORARY REGGAE/DANCEHALL SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a British Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of Movie Trailer and TV placements.

“You're Not the Only One” by Third World ft. Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley

“Easy” by Khalia

“Heart Too Clean” by Jah Vinci

Quoting the Music Library: “We’re looking for music that sounds more like MODERN artists, rather than traditional-sounding material.”

Give them well-crafted Reggae/Dancehall Songs that sound like the real deal! Your submissions should have killer grooves, captivating melodies, and very authentic-sounding Reggae/Dancehall instrumentation. Be sure your vocals are well performed, with a solid, authentic-sounding delivery.

Avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, and profanity in your lyrics, as it will make your Songs more “sync-able.” Please do NOT copy the referenced Songs or artists in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

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

TRADITIONAL-Sounding WORLD 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, Greek, 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.

Give them well-crafted Songs that capture the true spirit of the Country/Region/Continent you choose. Submissions can range from solo performances or small ensembles to larger, fuller arrangements. Please be sure your vocal performances sound authentic to the region your music comes from.

TAXI TIP: They’re open to hearing recently recorded Songs AND authentic vintage masters recorded back in the day. We recommend that you submit TWO or THREE Instrumentals per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

NOTE: They didn’t give us many parameters, other than asking us to find them NEW, original talent with a noticeable Middle Eastern flavor. Please be sure to submit your most competitive material for this pitch, as the bar will be high! Even though this is search is somewhat broad, all submissions should be commercially competitive within their respective genre.

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.
