"A Little Bit Stronger" by Sara Evans

"She's in Love with the Boy" by Trisha Yearwood

"Boulder to Birmingham" by Emmylou Harris

IMPORTANT: Although some of the references are quite dated, imagine what a contemporary version of these artists would sound like if they were in their prime todayThink of the kind of instrumentation used in Traditional Country songs like these ones – acoustic guitars, pedal steels, fiddles, etc. – and marry it with modern production sensibilities.

Please submit Modern Songs that have youthful energy, but capture the honest, authentic feeling of Traditional Country Songs with their lyrics, songwriting style, and vocals.

Lots of EDM SONGS with ROCK Influence and 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 Record Producer is looking for lots of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

"Start It Up" by League of Legends feat. Prblm Chld & new.wav

"Centuries (Gazzo Remix)" by Fall Out Boy

"Navy Blue" by Prblm Chld feat. Heather Sommer

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 submit well-produced EDM Songs that incorporate Rock instrumentation and production elements. Polished production, great melodies, and killer EDM drop sections are all essential for this pitch. Be sure that any software sounds and samples you use are top-notch and fresh – nothing dated will work, here. Top your submissions off with compelling vocals, and you could have just what this producer is looking for!

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!

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

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Producer on a Song-by-Song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, January 20th, 2021.  TAXI # S210120DR

CUTTING-EDGE EDM SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Top International DJ for his next Single! He is distributed internationally by Universal and has accumulated more than 100,000,000 Spotify streams. Yep, that says One Hundred Million!

He’s searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fit well on a playlist with these references:

"Goodbye" by Imanbek & Goodboys

"Alone With You" by HEDEGAARD & Conor Maynard feat. Katie Pearlman

"Complicated (Faustix Remix)" by Alexander Oscar & Svea

Please submit modern EDM Songs with top-notch melodies, unforgettable hooks, and well-crafted lyrics. Super confident vocal performances could work to your advantage, as well. Since this DJ will likely be remixing or reworking your Songs, he's probably not going to be looking so much at the production as much as the melodies and lyrics of your tracks. That being said, your production and any software samples or sounds you use should be modern and fresh.

NOTE: This act will likely remix or rework the Songs 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!

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

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your Songs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Include Lyrics. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, January 27th, 2021.  TAXI # S210127ED

"In Hell I'll Be in Good Company" by the Dead South

NOTE: This company is looking for material that comes from artists that are Canadian for Canadian projects. If you are not Canadian, please do not submit for this opportunity.

Please submit well-composed Folk Songs with a generally similar "rootsy" feel to the referenced artists and others of that ilk. Your submissions should have inviting rhythms, top-notch melodies, and great musicianship. Well-crafted lyrics coupled with well-performed vocals and a healthy dose of Folk charm are essential for this pitch. Organic-based Folk instrumentation will suit your submissions well – please avoid submitting anything with synthetic or electronic-sounding instrumentation.

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

Please avoid the use of specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics if you’d like to increase your chances of nailing this request. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Company offers both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to do an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material for this pitch that you've already signed with other libraries or publishers. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this pitch. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD.

“Remember When” by Wallows

“Me & You Together Song” by The 1975

Please submit current-sounding Indie Rock Songs that have a crossover Pop vibe – think Pop song structure with an Indie edge.

NOTE: They’ve asked for at least TWO to THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

They’re mostly interested in artists and bands that are active and out there working on their careers, so please include any impressive touring, fan base, sales, streaming, or social media figures you have in your bio. That said – if you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and 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’d still like to hear you!

Please submit at least two to three Songs, online or per CD. Include lyrics, a photo, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Monday, January 25th, 2021.  TAXI # S210125PR

Also, your production and any and all software sounds you use need to be polished and modern.

VINTAGE INSTRUMENTAL JAZZ COVERS of PUBLIC DOMAIN MUSIC (RECORDED BEFORE 1979) are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

NOTE: We’re not providing any references for this request, as the company wants to keep this pretty open. All genres and sub-genres of Jazz music are on the table for this request as long as they were recorded before 1979.

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-executed Instrumental Jazz Covers of Public Domain pieces with excellent musicianship and lots of Vintage Jazz charm. Your submissions' arrangements should be top-notch and should capture the appropriate style of the era your pieces were recorded in. Please be sure your Covers stay as close to the original melodies as possible, so the roots of the pieces are recognizable. If you stray too far away from the original, your recordings may not be as appealing!

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.

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 Instrumental Covers were actually recorded BEFORE 1979, 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!

Please double check to make sure the Covers you submit are truly Public Domain! In case you’re unsure if they are, here’s a link that will help: Public Domain Popular Songs List

You need to own or control the Master recording 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 (PST) on Saturday, February 6th, 2021.  TAXI # S210206PJ

"Got That Boom" by SECRET NUMBER

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

Please submit well-produced Instrumentals with an undeniably K-Pop style and sound. Your submissions should have infectious beats, super catchy hooks, and state-of-the-art production elements and software sounds. Polished production and lots of exciting energy are essential for this pitch, as well.

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long (give or take) with non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings. 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.

Lots of LIGHT-HEARTED, PIANO-Based HIP-HOP INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company with a GREAT track record of placements!

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals/Cues that could be found on a playlist with the following references:

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

"Gone" by Kanye West (from 0:00 to 2:20)

"Good as Hell" by Lizzo

"Prom Night" by Chance The Rapper

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

IMPORTANT: They would like you to submit at least 5 Instrumentals/Cues! They would prefer that you submit an entire album of 10 Instrumentals/Cues, but that's not a requirement! They like to sign full projects, so we are telling the Screeners working on these submissions to look for top-notch batches. That said, if the majority of what you submit is really strong, but one or two are A-minus, they will likely forward your batch. We can't promise that; but if the Screener thinks the overall project sounds really strong but hears a couple of minor things that could be fixed, they will likely be forwarded and we'll let the Company reach out to you to suggest what they think would improve your "batch."

Please submit modern Hip-Hop Instrumentals (or Cues) with a generally similar fun, feel-good vibe to the referenced tracks and others like them. Your submissions should have bouncy rhythms, polished production, and feature carefree Piano parts as a focal point. Be sure that any software sounds or samples you use are high-quality and cutting-edge (nothing dated, please!). It'd be wise to stick to a singular mood and motif throughout your pieces so they remain cohesive throughout, as well. Give them Instrumentals that will make the listener want to dance like no one's watching – that's what they're looking for!

TAXI Tip: You can incorporate some non-lyrical choir parts like “whoas,” “yeahs,” “heys,” “woo-hoos,” etc., to add some additional exuberant energy to your tracks, but they're not absolutely necessary. If you do add choir parts, you would need to be able to send mixes without them at a moment's notice.

Lots of AMERICANA INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a European Music Library with International Distribution and a great history of film, TV, and commercial placements.

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Dispatch Listing #D201217AM, but the Library wants to hear even MORE great material! If you submitted to listing #D201217AM, please send different material this time around.

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

"Blue Ridge Mountain" by Hurray for the Riff Raff

"High Water (for Charley Patton)" by Bob Dylan

"Wagon Wheel" by Old Crow Medicine Show

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

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

Please submit top-notch Americana Instrumentals (or Cues) with engaging rhythms, solid melodies, and excellent musicianship. Your production should be generally competitive with the references and other artists like them. We think it'd be wise to stick with typical rootsy, organic "Americana" instrumentation and avoid submitting anything that sounds synthetic. Authenticity is key for nailing this request, so if you decide to use any software instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and convincing. The more your music sounds like it's being performed by real musicians playing real instruments, the better.

All submissions should be about 2 to 4 minutes long for Instrumentals and roughly 90 seconds to 2 minutes for Cues, give or take. Non-Faded, Button/Stinger endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Instrumentals (or Cues) you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please submit as many Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Sunday, January 31st, 2021.  TAXI # S210131AM

A Bunch of INDIE/ALTERNATIVE INSTRUMENTAL CUES with a Hip THROWBACK Vibe are needed by an extremely busy Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing #D201219XT, but the Library did not find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #D201219XT, please send different material this time around.

They’re on the hunt for lots of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from our client:

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

Please submit really cool, eclectic Instrumental Cues with a retro/throwback-influenced vibe and sound. Your submissions should have inviting rhythms, memorable melodies, and lots of Indie/Alternative 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. You'd be wise to stick with generally similar instrumentation to the references: organic-sounding drums, jangly guitars, dreamy synths, etc. If you're planning on using any software instruments, sounds, or samples, they need to be fresh and high-quality.

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

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.

A Bunch of 1980's-Style INSTRUMENTALS in a Range of GENRES that would sound great in TV Commercials are needed by the Publishing division of a well-known Label.

NOTE: This request is pretty wide-ranging, so we opted to not include references because we felt they could be more misleading or limiting than helpful. If you need a refresher on the decade, here's a list of hits from the 1980s (use this list only to get you in the '80's zone, as this company does NOT want to hear any copies or soundalikes): Hot 100 Songs of the 1980s

Please submit Instrumentals with a 1980's-era sound and style that could work well for TV Commercials. Popular 1980's genres like (but not limited to) Pop, R&B, New Wave, New Romantic, Punk, Glam Rock, etc., etc., are all on the table for this request. If you're submitting recently recorded material, any software sounds and samples you use should sound authentic and high-quality.

Recent recordings that sound retro can work for this request, but if you’ve got any original vintage pieces that actually date back to the 1980s, this publisher wants to hear them as well!

TAXI Tip: Emotionally upbeat tracks with a sense of happy nostalgia will probably work best for this pitch. We think it'd be a good idea to avoid submitting anything dark, sad, or melancholy.

Your Instrumentals should be no longer than 3 minutes in length. Short intros (or no intro at all), easy edit points, and Non-faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are all strongly recommended for this pitch. Broadcast Quality is needed.

The deal points will be negotiated directly with the Publisher on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by a TAXI Screener who has a strong relationship with the Label Owner.

CNN Music Theme "World News"

NOTE: This company is looking for material that comes from composers that are Canadian for Canadian projects. If you are not Canadian, please do not submit for this opportunity.

Send them well-produced Instrumentals that could feel at home on a range of TV News programming – breaking news, financial reports, technology updates, medical news, etc. Your submissions can cover a wide range of moods, but it'd be wise to stick to a singular mood and motif in each of your pieces so they remain cohesive. Both your production and any software sounds or samples you use should be high-quality and modern.

TAXI Tip: If you plan on incorporating Orchestral instrumentation into your pieces, be sure that any virtual instruments you use sound realistic and convincing. Anything that sounds unnatural, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven won’t work for this request.

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

If you're using any virtual instruments to replace organic ones, be sure that they don't sound stiff, synthetic, or dated.

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

MODERN, MOODY ALT-POP SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Chinese Creative Production Agency's new Record Label for an up-and-coming Virtual Artist. Payouts to Producers of these songs could range as high as $10,000 (if their tracks are used), according to the Company!

This Company is on the hunt for Songs in All Tempos in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got directly from them:

"Gimme" by BANKS

"Contaminated" by BANKS

"Stroke" by BANKS

NOTE: This request is for a Virtual Artist with an interesting narrative that the Label would like incorporated into the vibe and lyrical content of the songs you submit. Here's a brief description of her backstory to give you some context:

"This artist was transported to Earth from an alternate digital reality through a glitch. She looks like a human teenage girl, but didn't know anything about the human world previously and has to learn everything from the beginning. By the time the first single will be released, the artist will know some simple words and will be curiously exploring the world around her. The new world is full of wonder, but also sometimes makes her feel lost."

Please send super cool, concept-driven Alt-Pop Songs that could put this new Virtual Artist on the map. Your submissions should have polished production in the same general stylistic ballpark as the references and feature state-of-the-art software sounds and samples. Since this Virtual Artist only knows "simple words," we would suggest keeping your lyrics on the simpler, more impactful side.

Quoting the Company: "Musically, the songs should be Alt-Pop with swagger and impact. The choruses should have memorable hooks, and verses can be minimal but catchy. For the production, we'd like to hear all kinds of exciting sounds that convey the themes of the songs in interesting ways (e.g. sound design elements on top of traditional samples)."

Here are some specific lyrical concepts that this Label is interested in hearing that will help support this Virtual Artist's narrative:

1. Breath: This artist discovered “breathing” the first day she was "born" into her human body – she wondered why her chest was in constant movement and why she could always feel something traveling between her nose, mouth, and throat. She tried to stop the movement, but it got so uncomfortable after a few seconds that she realized breathing is essential for life as a human being and that it's a precious thing. Now when this artist is confused or overwhelmed by the human world, she takes a deep breath to make herself feel better. The song can be about how the artist feels to be a human, how she felt when she took her first breath, how she calms herself with her deep breaths, etc.

2. Senses: This artist is intrigued by her senses. All the sounds that she hears, shapes and colors that she sees, aromas that she smells, flavors that she tastes, and feelings from her touch are magical to her. She never tires of using her senses to observe, feel, discover, and connect to the human world. The song can be about the artist's experience of one sense or multiple senses, your best/worst memories about one of your senses (which could translate to the artist), a warm reminder for us to be open to new senses and experiences, or not letting the simple things in life pass us by.

3. Inside a body: It took a while for this artist to realize that her legs were HER legs and her hands were HER hands. As a creature in her original reality, it's not easy for this artist to comprehend why human beings have a body like this and how the hierarchy of bodies work – why do people judge each other by the way they look? How do people "interact" with their own bodies and with other people's bodies?

The specific deal points will be negotiated on a Song-by-Song basis directly with the Label. The estimated producer fees (paid to creators) are (up to) $10,000, depending on the ultimate placement.

Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics! 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. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Tuesday, January 26th, 2021.  TAXI # S210126AP

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

NOTE: Please send at least TWO to THREE Songs per submission so this Producer can get a good idea of your top-lining chops.

Please submit positive, emotionally uplifting songs/lyrics, and avoid anything that's moody, dark, or depressing, as well as anything that has specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and/or 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.

Lots of SONGS with a Range of Lyrics about CHANGE and GROWTH (with Male or Female Vocals) are needed by a successful Music Library with International Distribution and a great list of TV, Film, and Commercial placements.

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

Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs are usually more easily placed, but if you have really strong Ballads or Down-Tempo Songs, those could work as well in this context.

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

Concepts and keywords:

  • Changing for the better
  • Growing up
  • Moving forward
  • Growing stronger
  • Change is necessary
  • Learning and growing from hardships
  • Change is hard
  • Growing from mistakes

Please submit top-notch Songs with well-crafted lyrics about "change" and "growth." Whichever genres or sub-genres you pitch, be sure to have genre-appropriate instrumentation and production that's competitive with other material in that genre. Compelling vocal performances, really solid melodies, and memorable choruses could work to your advantage, as well!

The bar will be really high for this request, so please submit your very best material!

As always, you'd be wise to avoid using specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity if you’d like to increase the chances of your Songs getting signed and ultimately landing placements.

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. Any sync fees will be split 50/50 with you and the Company. You'll get 100% of the Writer's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share.

NOTE: Please send at least TWO to THREE Songs per submission so this Producer can get a good feeling for your top-lining chops.

Positive, uplifting, feel-good lyrics usually work best for TV Commercials. Please avoid lyrics that are moody, dark, or depressing, as well as anything that has specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and/or 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.

The deal will be negotiated between you and the Producer, but it’s pretty obvious that the deal is likely to be a co-write/collaboration between you and him. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Your submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Monday, January 18th, 2021.  TAXI # S210118LN

"The Hand That Feeds" by Nine Inch Nails

Although the references are dated, they would like to hear recently recorded tracks with a generally similar production style to the references.

Send them well-produced Industrial Rock Songs that capture a vibe and sound in the general wheelhouse of the references above. Distorted guitars and synths, intense rhythms, and well-performed, aggressive vocals are the way to go for this request. Both your production and all software sounds and samples you use need to be high-quality.

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

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

"T.N.T" by AC/DC

"Paranoid" by Black Sabbath

Please send recently recorded Rock Songs that capture the vibe and sound of heavy Rock in the 1970s. Distorted guitar riffs, killer drums, and top-notch vocals with lots of Classic Rock attitude are all essential for this request. If you're using any Virtual Instruments or samples, we'd suggest adding some real, organic instruments (guitars, drums, etc.) to the mix. The more your submissions sound like they're being performed by a real Rock band playing real instruments, the better!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this client. 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.

The Licensing Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50.

Top off your submissions with some fun, well-performed vocals, and you could have what this Producer/Music Supervisor is looking for!

Lyric Tip: They didn't give any preferred lyric topics, but we'd suggest sticking with themes that are happy and fun – they want the viewers to feel good while they're watching this TV show!

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.

MODERN 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 like:

"What It Takes" by Adelitas Way

"Torn in Two" by Breaking Benjamin

"DEVIL" by Shinedown

Quoting the Label's CEO: “I'm looking for an act that has good Songs, but isn’t necessarily a commercial radio-type act. 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 submit fresh, guitar-driven Rock Songs with compelling melodies, well-crafted lyrics, and confident, well-performed vocals. Excellent musicianship is a must for this request, as well.

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 Monday, January 25th, 2021.  TAXI # S210125RK

Singer/Songwriter

Return to List of Categories

GRITTY INDIE SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a successful Music Library that's supplying music to a Major Network TV Show!

This library is on the hunt for Songs in All Tempos that could be found on the same playlist as the following references we got directly from them:

"Hey, Ma" by Bon Iver

"Call It Dreaming" by Iron & Wine

"Down the Line" by José González

Quoting the Music Library: "The producers of this show like songs that are a little grittier/darker - in the vein of Bon Iver, José González, and Iron & Wine"

Please send well-produced, modern Indie Singer/Songwriter Songs with solid melodies, memorable choruses, and a generally gritty, dark sound and vibe. Compelling vocal performances and well-crafted lyrics are a must for this pitch, as well. We think both stripped-down productions and fuller arrangements could both work for this pitch. Whichever approach you decide to take, be sure that your production is competitive with the references. If you're planning on using any software sounds or samples, they should be high-quality and modern.

TAXI Tip: "Gritty" and "dark" doesn't necessarily mean "sad" or "depressing." Listen to the production style of the references, and try to capture a generally similar raw sound and style in your submissions.

NOTE: Ideally, they'd like to hear songs that are longer than 4 minutes in length (but keep things under 6 minutes, please). If you've got exceptional tracks that are shorter than 4 minutes long, they're still open to hearing those as well!

Please avoid the use of specific names, dates, times, places, and brands in your lyrics, if you’d like to increase your chances of nailing this request. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Company offers both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals. The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to do an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material for this pitch that you've already signed with other libraries or publishers. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this pitch. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

VINTAGE JAZZ COVERS of PUBLIC DOMAIN SONGS with Male or Female Vocals that were RECORDED BEFORE 1979 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

NOTE: We’re not providing any references for this request, as they want to keep this pretty open. All genres and sub-genres of Jazz music are on the table for this request as long as they were recorded before 1979.

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-executed Jazz Covers of Public Domain Songs with excellent musicianship, top-notch arrangements, and lots of Vintage Jazz charm. Having expressive, well-performed vocals is a must for this request. Your submissions' arrangements should be top-notch and capture the appropriate style of the era your pieces were recorded in, as well.

TAXI Tip: Please be sure your Covers stay as close to the original lyrics and melodies as possible, so the roots of the Songs are recognizable. If you stray too far away from the original, your recordings may not be as appealing!

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.

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 Covers were actually recorded BEFORE 1979, 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!

Please double check to make sure the Covers you submit are truly Public Domain! In case you’re unsure if they are, here’s a link that will help: Public Domain Popular Songs List

You need to own or control the Master recording 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.

Please send them vintage recordings of original (no covers) R&B Songs that were recorded between 1980 and 1989. 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 great rhythms, memorable melodies, and catchy choruses. Super strong vocal performances that capture the sound of 80s R&B are essential, as well!

Clean lyrics are preferred by this company!

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

This Record Label is on the hunt for Songs in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

"Mo Ghile Mear" by Mae McKenna

"Deora Ar Mo Chroí" by Enya

"Little Sparrow" by John Doyle

Please submit top-notch Celtic Songs that showcase your ability to captivate the listener with inviting rhythms, moving melodies, well-performed vocals, and lots of Celtic charm. Be sure that both your production and recording quality are high-quality and on the same general playing field as the references and others like them. If you plan to use virtual versions of "organic" Instruments (guitars, pianos, etc.), they should sound like the real thing! Anything that’s obviously synthetic or MIDI-driven won’t work, here.

TAXI TIP: This label is NOT looking for Celtic Rock for this pitch. They want heartfelt Celtic tracks that have more of a relaxing feel to them.

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

You’d be wise to highlight any licensing experience, fanbase, or impressive sales/streaming figures you may have in your bio. All those things can help make you more appealing to the company! If you’re a new artist or band and don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an amazing sound and the compositions to back it up, they are still willing to give you a listen!

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Record Label on a case-by-case basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include a photo and bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Saturday, January 30th, 2021.  TAXI # S210130CT
