TAXI's Industry Listings

Christmas/Holiday

Return to List of Categories

Lots and Lots of ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS SONGS in ALL GENRES with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a TAXI COMPILATION going directly to A WHOLE BUNCH of our favorite Music Licensing Companies, Music Supervisors, and Ad Agencies for Film, TV, and Advertising placements!

We’re not giving references for this request, as we think they may be too limiting. 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.

Genre-wise, we think you’d be wise to go with popular genres for Christmas music like Singer/Songwriter, Adult Contemporary, Traditional Pop, Jazz, R&B, Indie Folk, Pop, Country, Anthemic Rock, Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Soul, Gospel, etc. You’d be smart to avoid genres that aren’t commercially viable or relatable to a wide audience.

We’ve compiled a list of concepts, keywords, ideas, and phrases we think are a good place to start and could 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:

  • Christmas
  • Happy Holidays
  • Winter
  • Spending time with loved ones
  • Home for the Holidays
  • Joy
  • Snow
  • Staying warm by the fire
  • Santa Claus
  • Reindeer
  • Mistletoe
  • The hustle and bustle of the Holidays

Please send top-tier, original Christmas/Winter Holiday Songs that capture the spirit of the holidays! Memorable melodies, well-crafted Christmas/Holiday-centered lyrics, excellent arrangements, polished production, and engaging, well-performed vocals are all required for this pitch. Depending on the genre you choose, your submissions can range from stripped-down to more filled-out production – just be sure they are generally competitive with other top Holiday Songs in your selected genre. If you choose to use any virtual instruments or samples, please be sure they are high-quality and not dated sounding.

TAXI Tip: Incorporating some Christmas-y accents like a glockenspiel, sleigh bells, or tubular bells could give your submissions some additional Christmas cheer, but we’ve typically found that it’s best not to overdo them. Less is more, and they're not mandatory for this pitch!

Our A&R team will have a simple mandate: Is it GREAT? Does it sound ready to go as it is? Would it work well for placements in Film, TV, and Advertising? Would TAXI's clients be happy to hear this on the playlist we send them? The bar will be high for this request.

NOTE: TAXI has been quite successful in helping our members sign deals via the playlists on previous compilations. Our industry clients like the proactive approach :-) This playlist will be sent to dozens of TAXI's best clients, as well as some companies we'd like to have as new clients!

Lyrics should avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, and brands – unless they are Christmas related (i.e. Santa, North Pole, December 25th) – if you’d like to increase the chances of your Songs getting signed and ultimately landing placements. Generally mentioning times and places in the context of the holiday could work. An example would be, "I'll be home for Christmas." An example of what would not work might be, "I'm flying home for Christmas on American Airlines, and I'm landing at 6:15 on Thursday at Newark airport." We made that a little over the top to make the point ;-)

NOTE: No profanity for this request, please.

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

Because the selected Songs will be going directly to many different Music Licensing Companies, deal terms may vary. However, since some of the Companies are EXCLUSIVE Libraries, we ask that the Songs you pitch for this request are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. That includes any monetization or publishing administration deals with online distributors like CDBaby, TuneCore, etc. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, August 22nd, 2022. TAXI # S220822XM

CHART-WORTHY COUNTRY SONGS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocals are needed by the President of a super successful Nashville-based Publisher with a great track record.

Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs are typically the most desirable in the Country market, but if you’ve got an awesome, career-making ballad, this Publisher is open to hearing it!

"She Had Me At Heads Carolina" by Cole Swindell

Please submit top-tier Country Songs that could top the Country Radio Charts! Catchy melodies, instantly memorable choruses, and fresh, story-teller, well-crafted lyrics are all required for this pitch. While your submissions can range within the modern Country genre, we recommend leaning on the more Traditional side to be most appealing to this Publisher. Having well-produced Songs will also put you ahead of the pack. However, stripped-down Piano/Vocal or Guitar/Vocal demos can also work for this pitch if they effectively get the message of your Songs across. Whichever approach you choose to take, please be sure your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and not dated. Top your submissions off with compelling, well-performed vocals brimming with Country charm, and you could have just what this Publisher is looking for. This Publisher needs Songs that sound like hits in the making!

TAXI Tip: Your lyric craft needs to be top-notch for this request! Remember, this Music Publisher is a big deal, so please be sure the quality of your Songs is strong enough to make it over the Nashville “bar" and onto his desk.

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Publisher. 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 TAXI screener. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, August 15th, 2022. TAXI # S220815CN

IMPORTANT: The bar will be high for this request, so the more radio-ready your Songs sound, the better your chances are of nailing this pitch. Your recordings need to be clean, clear, and well-balanced! Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form.

Send them top-notch, modern Country Ballads that could take an artist to the top of the Country charts and become a staple hit in their catalogue.

Cover Songs

Return to List of Categories

COVERS of "MICKEY" with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Film/TV Music Publisher for an (up to) $10,000 placement in an upcoming Netflix Project.

This Publisher really wants to find Uptempo Covers of "Mickey":

"Mickey" by Toni Basil

NOTE: You can submit vintage recordings (from the 1980's); or, if you’ve got any recently recorded Songs in the general production style of the references, they would love to hear those as well!

About This Scene: "This song search is for a particular scene: Girl in 80's clothing with leg warmers is dancing and working out in from of the mirror. Nailing the 80's sound with energy is key."

Please submit top-notch Covers of "Mickey" that capture the 1980's Retro Pop style and sound. Your submissions should have engaging, upbeat arrangements, authentic-sounding instrumentation that's generally similar to the reference, and stay true to the original melodies and lyrics. If you choose to use any virtual instruments or samples, please be sure they are of the highest quality and sound consistent with what would have been heard in the 1980's. Your production should be polished and era-appropriate, as well. Top your submissions off with energetic, well-performed vocals and you could have just what this Publisher needs!

Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed. Era-appropriate broadcast quality will work for vintage recordings.

NOTE: This Publisher will need instrumental-only versions of your Songs as well, but not yet!  All you need to submit for now are the Full Songs with vocals, but please have mixes-minus-vocals on hand and ready to send at a moment’s notice if you get a call or email from the Publisher. Go ahead and submit for this if you would be able to get your mixes-minus-vocals in their hands within an hour after being contacted.

The estimated license fee for each placement is up to $10,000, depending on the ultimate use. We suspect that the fee on this one could be on the lower side, as you would only be licensing the master recording, but not the composition. This Publisher offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal. You’ll split any applicable sync fees 50/50. You must own or control your Master 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.

CHART-WORTHY EDM SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Top European DJ (distributed internationally by Universal) who's working on upcoming releases!

NOTE: This DJ has an impressive list of Main Stage Festival and Touring credits and has accumulated more than 100,000,000 streams on Spotify alone! Yep, that says One Hundred Million!

This DJ is searching high and low for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be heard on playlists with the references below:

"The Motto" by Tiësto feat. Ava Max

"100 Years" by HEDEGAARD, Echosmith, & Tvilling

"Party's Over" by Brando

Please submit modern EDM Songs that could take this DJ to the top of the Dance charts! Your submissions should have catchy hooks, instantly memorable melodies, slick arrangements, well-crafted lyrics, and a hefty dose of mainstream appeal. Captivating, well-performed vocals are a must, 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, high-quality, and strong enough to represent your songs well.

NOTE: There's a possibility that this DJ might want to keep your vocals on the tracks! The deal will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis 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 well. 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 (PDT) on Saturday, August 27th, 2022. TAXI # S220827ED

MODERN, RELAXING MEDITATION INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC ARTISTS or COMPOSERS are needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s eagerly looking for fresh, new talent to sign to its roster.

This Record Label is looking for Instrumentals that could be heard on a playlist with these references:

"Quiet Times" by Dan Maus

"Herinneringen" by Sohn Aelia

"Bryophyta" by Ranjan E

Send them well-produced Meditation Instrumentals with a heartfelt and timeless sound that evoke a sense of peacefulness and tranquility. Your submissions can feature organic or electronic-based instrumentation (or a combination of both). Some light percussive instrumentation could work for this request, but don't over do it! Your Instrumentals should be relaxing and soothing throughout – without anything that sticks out and could draw the listener's attention away from the meditation. Please be sure your production is polished and any virtual sounds or samples you use are high-quality and not dated sounding.

Please do NOT include any sound effects in your music such as animal sounds, waterfalls, wind chimes, raindrops, etc.

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!

Please limit your running time to roughly 3 or 4 minutes in length (give or take). Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your music well. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

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.

MODERN INDIE FOLK ARTISTS and BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a well-respected Indie Record Label that’s been in business for quite some time and is looking for great new acts to sign to their roster.

This Label is eagerly looking for Artists/Bands that would appeal to fans of the following acts:

"America" by Dan San

"New Person, Old Place" by Madi Diaz

"I Just Love You" by Roo Panes

"The Woods" by Hollow Coves

Please send well-crafted Indie Folk Songs with alluring melodies, captivating lyrics, and inviting rhythms that showcase your distinctive sound and style. Your submissions should have acoustic-based instrumentation in the general style of the references (and others like them), expressive, well-performed vocals, and plenty of Indie charm. Please be sure your production and any virtual instruments or samples you may choose to use are high-quality and not dated sounding. If you have tracks that are bringing a fresh perspective to Indie Folk, this Label wants to hear them!

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

Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, 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 (PDT) on Saturday, September 3rd, 2022. TAXI # S220903KB

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

Send them top-tier, original, vintage recordings of 1990's Grunge Songs with engaging melodies, memorable hooks, rockin' guitars, and tons of raw, unapologetic energy.

Your arrangements should feature typical Grunge instrumentation with excellent musicianship and top-notch, era-appropriate production and fidelity. Intense, well-performed vocals are a must, as well.

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!

NOTE: They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can ONLY use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only if the sound quality is reasonably good. It doesn't have to be super hi-fi, but reasonably good, well-balanced recordings and mixes are needed.
