CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a well-known Music Row Publisher for a Major Label Artist.

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic ballpark of artists and Songs like (but not limited to) Jordan Davis, Morgan Wallen, Thomas Rhett etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get a feel for the style and vibe they need:

“Slow Dance In A Parking Lot” by Jordan Davis

“Look What God Gave Her” by Thomas Rhett

Please submit top-shelf, Grade-A Songs with catchy melodies and a visually descriptive, conversational lyrical approach. Be sure your submissions have a Contemporary Country structure with instrumentation that’s commonly found in Modern Country music. Adding a hint of Pop-leaning productions could give you an edge for this pitch. You’d be wise to have solid and authentic vocal performances to get the Publisher and Artist excited about cutting your Songs.

TAXI Tip: Your submissions can be well-crafted, stripped-down demos or they can be larger productions with more arrangements, as long as what you send is competitive with what the client gets from writers on the Row.

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Publisher 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 TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Sunday, February 9th, 2020.  TAXI # S200209CS

BIG EDM POP HITS with Male Vocals are needed by a Major Label Producer for a Billboard-charting Electronic act that’s looking for their next single!

They need Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that fit stylistically with the references he provided us:

“Happier” by Marshmello ft. Bastille

"FRIENDS" by Marshmello & Anne-Marie

“The Middle” by Zedd, Maren Morris, Grey

NOTE: Although some of the reference Songs have Female Vocals, he's ONLY looking to hear Songs with MALE VOCALS, so please use the references only as a directional guide for the production style, vibe, and sonic approach.

He's looking for current-sounding EDM Pop Songs that have catchy melodies and huge, anthemic choruses. Your submissions should have a fresh rhythmic, melodic, and lyrical approach, with instrumentation that sounds modern (and in the ballpark of what you’d hear from the referenced artists above).

COVER VERSIONS (SONGS) of Andrew Gold's "Thank You for Being A Friend" with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by a super well-connected Publisher for a wide variety of Film, TV, and Commercial placements.

NOTE: They’re open to hearing both newly re-imagined versions or covers that stay close to the original.

For reference, here’s the original version of "Thank You for Being A Friend":

"Thank You for Being A Friend" by Andrew Gold

NOTE: The Publisher feels a soulful, R&B (or perhaps a Gospel rendition) will resonate the most for potential pitches. That said, commercially viable genres (from any era) like Singer/Songwriter, Rock, Pop, Country, EDM, Jazz, etc. are still fair game as well!

Please submit well-crafted covers of the hit '70s Song, "Thank You for Being A Friend," which became known as the musical theme to the hit TV Series, The Golden Girls. You’d be wise to not submit anything that’s too dark or melancholic, as the Covers of the Song should embody the anthemic and good-natured quality that the original Andrew Gold record possesses.

Your recordings can range from simple arrangements up to bigger, more developed productions. While your arrangements/instrumentation can vary, please stick fairly close to the original lyric and melody so that the root of the Song is still recognizable. If you stray too far away from the original, your Covers may not be as appealing!

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal with a 3-year reversion, so please be sure the Covers you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. You need to own or control your Master Recording.

Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener who was personally selected by the requesting Company. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Tuesday, January 28th, 2020.  TAXI # S200128GG

Your productions and arrangements can vary, but they’re not interested in hearing anything that’s "too pad-heavy or piano and strings-heavy."  Be sure your vocal performances are well-executed from start to finish. Think of the type of music that you might hear in a high-end perfume commercial or on the soundtrack of one of the Fifty Shades of Grey films. That's what they need!

NOTE: This Company has a high bar and they tend to gravitate toward music that sounds more like records, rather than material that sounds like it came from a stock music library. Please submit accordingly!

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

A RANGE OF HIGH-ENERGY ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company for the Music Supervisor of a Popular TV Series on a Major Cable network!

Please listen to the references they gave us (below) to get an idea of the stylistic range they're looking for:

“The Fall Out” by Hating Nate

“The Temperance Movement” by Three Bullets

“Scrape” by Blue Stahl

Please submit high-energy Rock Songs with authentic-sounding instrumentation, killer rhythm sections, and vocal performances full of attitude. Be sure your Songs are well-structured from start to finish and include big, infectious choruses!

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.

DREAMY INDIE/ALTERNATIVE ARTISTS OR BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a U.K.-Based Indie Label that has worked with some LEGENDARY Artists and Bands!

This Record Label is brand new to requesting music from TAXI members, so this is a great chance to get on their radar! They’re on the prowl for some great new acts that would appeal to the fans of artists like:

“Black Willow” by Loma

“Wrong” by Erland & The Carnival

“from when I wake the want is” by Kathryn Joseph

Please submit Indie Songs with a distinctly dreamy, "hipster" sound and vibe that could potentially be all over the college radio stations.

Arrangements should include a balance of organic Rock instrumentation mixed with some electronic elements to keep them modern. Artists in this style tend to have unique, emotional lead vocalists, a good use of harmonies, and a lot of reverb in their mixes. Revisit the references to see if you are in the right ballpark!

NOTE: Please submit TWO to THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

Your recordings need to be well-balanced and good enough to represent your Songs well. Please be sure your bio includes any impressive touring, fanbase, or sales/streaming figures you may have. If you are a new 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 the Songs to back it up, they’d still very much like to hear what you've got!

Submit two to three Songs, online or per CD, and include lyrics, photos, and bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Thursday, January 23rd, 2020.  TAXI # S200123DH
