Lots of ORIGINAL HOLIDAY SONGS in ALL GENRES with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a really impressive Music Licensing Company with a very long list of great Film, TV, and Commercial placements!

They’re searching for quite a few Songs in Various Styles and Tempos that could be found on a holiday playlist with these references:

“True Love” by Ariana Grande

"Happy Hanukkah " by Matisyahu

“Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber

“Bring Me Love” by John Legend

NOTE: Songs can be about almost any recognizable Holiday, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, etc.

Please submit ORIGINAL Songs (no covers) that capture the essence of the holiday season! Your submissions should have great lyrics, catchy melodies, and unforgettable choruses. Your productions can range from simple versions up to bigger, more developed arrangements, just be sure the instrumentation is appropriate for the genres you choose. Having well-performed vocals could also help you stand out for this opportunity.

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 the most often!

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 an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright.

“Merry Go 'Round” by Kacey Musgraves

“Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)” by The Judds

Quoting the Music Supervisor: “Each Song needs to retain a down-home honest style and interest throughout. The Songs' storylines have to move and engage the listener. The more emotion, the better.”

Please submit heartfelt Country Ballads with captivating melodies, compelling lyrics, and choruses that will create an emotional connection with the audience. Be sure your vocals are well-performed and have honest Country deliveries. You can submit very simple, stripped-down Songs, or you can submit more fully arranged productions.

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity will be appreciated by the Music Supervisor, as they are often easier to place because they don't conflict with the story or the scene. Do not copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

The estimated license fee for each of these placements is $4,000, depending on the ultimate usage.

TRADITIONAL COUNTRY & WESTERN SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very successful EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company. This company has a history of lots and lots of really AWESOME placements!

They’re searching for Songs in All Tempos that are in the stylistic ballpark of artists like Hank William Sr, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Buck Owens, etc. Please listen to the following references the client gave us to get yourself in the general ballpark of what they need:

“Your Cheatin Heart” by Hank William Sr

“Okie From Muskogee” by Merle Haggard

"Jolene" by Dolly Parton

"Streets Of Bakersfield " by Buck Owens

NOTE: Your submissions can be actual vintage masters, or they can be recently recorded Songs with a retro sound that give an “I can’t believe that wasn’t recorded back in the day!” impression.

Please submit Original Songs with a traditional, old-time Country sound and style. Your submissions should have a well-developed song structure with compelling melodies, great lyrics, and memorable choruses. Your vocals should be well-performed with authentic-sounding Country deliveries.

LYRIC TIP: Lyrically, they are open to a variety of themes and subject matters. While the common classics like breakups and hometown salutes could work, for this pitch we encourage you to consider lyrics that touch on broader aspects of the human experience, as well as non-romantic/non-traditional relationships.

Although Country lyrics are often visually descriptive, Music Licensing Companies still tend to request Country Songs with fairly universal lyrics.  We usually ask you to avoid the use of specific names, places, etc, in your lyrics for these requests, but in this case it isn’t necessarily something that would disqualify your submissions, as evidenced by their references ;-) See the following paragraph for some clarification.

Quoting the Client: “A specific reference or two is okay, but nothing of prime significance, please. If you have Songs about your hometown of Folsom, great, but if you have Songs about growing up in the foothills of a small-town without naming Folsom, even better!"

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. Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT! Per our client, your Submissions must:

1) NOT be encumbered by ANY other publishing, licensing, administration, and/or exploitation deals (whether non-exclusive or exclusive) including publishing/licensing agreements with CD Baby, TuneCore, DistroKid, etc.

2) Be 100% original – no soundalikes, Cover Songs, and no recordings with samples.

“Hustler” by Simian Mobile Disco

"Right on Time” By Skrillex, 12th Planet, Kill The Noise

“Overthrow” by Boys Noize

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please listen closely to the references as they are NOT looking for full Songs or Instrumentals that are purely instrumental. They ARE looking for Instrumental tracks with minimal, sparse lyrics that are not in a traditional song structure. Your vocals can be sample-based or they can be performed.

Please send Instrumental-driven, Hard Electronic-Dance Songs that have catchy melodies and hooky vocal parts. Your productions should have a ton of fist-pumping energy, with great big builds and drops, and the latest and most up-to-date electronic sounds.

NOTE: The client does NOT want to hear any Dubstep for this request.

Phrases that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, and brands could give you an added edge. Do not copy the referenced artists or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

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.

FRENCH ELECTRONIC POP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a British Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

Please submit Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with these references they gave us:

"Coeur Croise" by Polo & Pan

"Nana" by polo & pan

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company has a really 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 you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Please send modern Electronic Songs with the general feel and style of the references above. Your Songs should utilize current-sounding electronic elements and innovative, trendsetting production techniques. Make sure your Songs are firing on all cylinders here – submissions should have memorable melodies, killer hooks, and really catchy choruses.

TAXI Tip: The arrangements of your Songs can use a typical A/B/A/B structure, but it isn't necessary. Instrumental-driven Songs with simple, sparsely-placed chants and melodic vocal phrases throughout could also work for this opportunity.

NOTE: Your Songs should feature vocals performed in French, or at least mostly in French with a little English sprinkled in.

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. 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.

Return to List of Categories

A Bunch of MODERN FOLK or INDIE FOLK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a boutique Music Library with tons of credits in big Feature Films and countless TV Shows and Commercials.

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

“We're Going Home” by Vance Joy

“Spirits” by The Strumbellas

Please send well-crafted Modern Folk or Indie Folk Songs with engaging melodies, solid musicianship, and strong songwriting. Your production styles can vary from simple tracks with just acoustic guitar, handclaps, and foot stomps, to small acoustic-based ensembles, and all the way up to more fully produced Songs. Having really compelling vocal performances should help with getting the attention of this company!

Songs with universal lyrics are typically the most easily placed, so please try to avoid specific names, dates, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: They 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. Please have mix-minus-vocal versions on hand and ready to send at a moment’s notice, if you get a call or email from the Music Library. If you don’t have the ability to get your mix-minus-vocal versions in the hands of the Music Library within an hour after being contacted, please do NOT submit for this!

This company is only interested in signing material from artists 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 keep 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 any other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Beautiful Relaxing Music for Stress Relief • Meditation Music

Natural Meditation Music

"Let Go Of All Negative Energy" Meditation Music

Please send soothing meditation-style Instrumentals that set a calming, relaxing mood and vibe. Your arrangements can be based on organic or electronic instruments, or you can submit hybrids that use both!

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (#D200528AN), but the company wants to hear MORE material! They want to build a nice stash of this genre. If you submitted to listing #D200528AN, please send different material this time around.

They’re searching for Instrumentals (and/or Cues) in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the references below:

Italian Medley (Miscuglio Italiano)

Beautiful Italian Music - Town of Italy

Espresso Bar Italia by Trabant 33

Please submit authentic-sounding Instrumentals and/or Cues that quickly transport viewers/listeners to a variety of locations in Italy. This request is all about setting the mood and location, so send pieces that could serve as an accompaniment to documentaries or travel-related shows based around Italian culture. Think of the type of music that would play as a travel host tastes some of the most exquisite Italian dishes, or strolls through the countryside.

NOTE: Instrumentation including (but not limited to): clarinet, accordion, violin, and mandolin would all work well. Your arrangements can range from simple, solo pieces, all the way up to ensembles of various sizes. Just be sure to stick with one central motif and mood from beginning to end.

Your submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (#D200601AR), but the company wants to hear MORE material. Yay, that's a good thing, and it creates more opportunities for you!

If you submitted to listing #D200601AR, please send different material this time around.

They’re on a mission to find a bunch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that fall within the general ballpark of these references:

“Let Me Down ” by Oliver Tree

“Loner” by YUNGBLUD

“No Secrets” by The Treble

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

Please submit rockin’ Instrumentals that fit the general vibe, style, and sound of the references above. Your submissions should have well-played, authentic-sounding Rock guitars and drums. Some electronic elements are fine, but they shouldn’t be the primary focus in your tracks. Having developmental “arcs” that make your Instrumentals feel like they're moving forward is a good idea for this request. In other words, build them up, drop them back down, build them back up, make them even bigger, and go for big finishes with nice Stinger endings.

TAXI Tip: Be sure to avoid any screechy, super-busy guitar parts that could fight with dialogue, as well as any instruments that sound synthetic or obviously MIDI-driven.

Your submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings will work best for this request. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or Songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Lots of MIDDLE EASTERN PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a leading Music Licensing Company for a bunch of ongoing placements that will air on Middle Eastern-themed TV programs and Documentaries. They could also air anywhere in the world!

They’re on the hunt for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic ballpark of the references below:

Maksoum Middle Eastern Rhythm

Tabla and Percussion Solo

“Solo Drums” by Amir Sofi

Cycle of Life

This request is for purely Percussion Instrumental Cues! Please avoid submitting Cues with any additional instrumentation.

Please submit Traditional Percussion Instrumental Cues that quickly transport viewers/listeners to locations in the Middle East. Your submissions should have authentic-sounding Instrumentation that's rhythmically engaging from start to finish. You’d be smart to stick to just one idea throughout your pieces. Don’t compose for multiple emotions, feelings, and vibes in one Instrumental Cue.

Solo instrumentation, small ensembles, and even larger ensembles can all work for this request, but please don’t rely solely upon pre-made loops - get creative with your programming! Overdubbing one or two real instruments over your virtual ones can add to the authenticity factor! Anything that’s obviously synthetic-sounding or MIDI-driven won’t work well for this company. The more realistic and authentic it sounds, the better!

NOTE: There are 18 Middle Eastern countries and they are all fair game for this request. Your submissions can have influences from countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Israel, Iraq, etc., etc., etc. Here’s a link that demonstrates many of the different percussion styles and directions your Instrumental Cues could go in (Don’t limit yourself to these ideas, of course – they are just some suggestions!): Middle Eastern Rhythm Guide.

TAXI Tip: It's probably not a great idea to try and win "Composer of the Year" on your submissions, by getting super complex. Simple is often better!!

Your submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2 minutes in length, give or take. Non-faded endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material 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 Instrumental Cues you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. You'll keep 100% of the Writer's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share.

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

"It's Hard To Say Goodbye" by Michael Ortega

“Love Lost” by Mattia Cupelli

Please submit Original, well-performed Solo Piano Instrumentals that create a sad, melancholic, and/or somber mood. Your Instrumentals should have solid musicianship from start to finish, with great articulation and tonality. Be sure to stick to a singular motif and mood throughout, so your submissions are cohesive from top to bottom. In other words, don't try to score a scene, so much as create something that sticks to one motif. If your Instrumentals evoke emotions like sadness, regret, or longing, then you might have exactly what this Company needs!

TAXI TIP: If you’re using sampled/virtual Pianos, be sure that they don't sound synthetic or obviously MIDI-driven, as that won’t work for this request.

Your submissions should be 2-3 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

AMBIENT, DRONE-Y UNDERSCORE INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a European Music Licensing Company with a really impressive list of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials!

Please submit “drone-y” Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

“Perihelion” by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross

“The Abyss” by Ager Sonus (From 0:00 - 3:12)

Please send subtle Instrumental Cues with very little melodic movement. Your Cues should have a consistent droning-quality that conveys an unsettling, moody feeling. Be sure to stick to a singular vibe and sound throughout each entire Cue to keep your pieces cohesive from beginning to end. Instrumental Cues incorporating some pulsing bass notes, light drumbeats, pulsing pads, or any combination of those elements could potentially work, but remember, less is more. Simplicity and mood are the keys to this request.

TAXI TIP:  Please make sure your electronic elements/sounds can compete with the best-sounding Cues that are out there. Material that has poor or dated-sounding Virtual Instruments won’t work well for this request.

All submissions should be about 1:30 in length, give or take. Non-Faded Endings with a natural decay/ring out will likely work best. 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.

“Rain On Me” by Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande

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

Please submit well-composed Instrumentals that have catchy and creative melodies, engaging rhythms, and an overall polished Pop sound.

Your submissions should have infectious grooves, engaging rhythms, and captivating melodies. Your productions can have some electronic instrumentation, as long as your overall submissions are primarily driven by guitar and bass.

TAXI Tip: If you plan on using virtual guitars or basses for this request, please make sure they sound indistinguishable from the real thing! Instrumentals that sound stiff, low-quality, or obviously MIDI-driven and quantized won’t work well for this request.

Construct your Cues around central melodic themes while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as they progress to create dynamics, interest, and a sense of forward movement. If you use Virtual Instruments or samples, we’d suggest adding some real, organic instruments (drums, guitars, etc.) into your mixes as well. That can often be the thing that makes your music sound more "real" and authentic, rather than sounding like it came from a "box."

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.

They’re looking for a big batch of Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals (and/or Cues) in the stylistic ballpark of the references below:

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

“Wrong” by DaniLeigh

“Lucid Dreams” by Juice WRLD

“Tommy Lee” by Tyla Yaweh ft. Post Malone

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

Please send modern-sounding Trap Instrumentals (and/or Cues) that have a sad and/or melancholic mood, sound, and feel. Your submissions should be well-structured with contemporary Trap elements and slick production techniques. Heavy, speaker-knocking drums/percussion, dark melodies, and cool-sounding ear candy will all serve you well for this request!

Quoting The Music Library Owner: "My most important goal is to have a great library with fresh, current-sounding tracks – that’s the type of material that gets used a lot more."

UPDATE: This company has already signed about 40 TAXI members, and is loving the music we're sending him!

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, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. 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.

This is a gratis library where the artist and publisher are paid through PRO’s only – Not unusual...actually, very common these days, especially for Reality TV Shows. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Please submit as many Instrumentals and/or Instrumental Cues as you'd like, online or per CD.

Several EMOTIONALLY UPLIFTING ORCHESTRAL INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal and has tons of credits in Big Films, Countless TV Shows, and Commercials!

This is a catalog you want to be in! Please listen to the following examples our client gave us to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need:

Instrumental Examples

Quoting The Music Library: “These reference tracks are intended to inspire you and help you understand what we’re after. The examples should give you a deeper and more intuitive feel for the main aspects of composition, mood, and sound, but in no way are we asking you to copy them. We’re looking for your own unique interpretation.”

The client is looking for Inspiring Instrumental Cues that start quietly and build to a lush, dramatic climax. Submissions should have ONE clear compositional concept per Cue and should continuously build throughout. Please avoid very prominent melodies, and instead use understated motifs and accents that complement the patterns/textures.

Your Instrumental Cues should be primarily Orchestral-based, and should be relatively minimalistic in their arrangements. They are NOT looking to hear epic trailer style Instrumental Cues for this request. It’s fine to have a few lower percussion hits in isolated spots, but in general, stay away from anything that sounds too big or grand.

TAXI Tip: Please be sure any Orchestral instrumentation you use sounds realistic, and not stiff or synthetic. Top-notch programming, and the use of excellent samples and virtual instruments are all requirements for this pitch.

All submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Good edit points and Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are required. Broadcast Quality is needed.

NOTE: 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 retain 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 (PDT) on Tuesday,  July 14th, 2020. TAXI # S200714UP

This company is only interested in signing material from artists 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 keep 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 any other Libraries or Publishers. You must own or control your Master and Composition rights. 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, July 27th, 2020. TAXI # S200727EM

“Pour Some Sugar On Me” By DEF LEPPARD

“Livin' On A Prayer ” by Bon Jovi

“Dude (Looks Like A Lady)” by Aerosmith

NOTE: This Record Label would prefer to hear original vintage pieces that actually date back to the 1980s, and the sound quality must be reasonably good. They will also consider recent recordings; however, they must authentically sound like they were recorded in the 1980s! 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 Rock Songs that have an authentic (or very believable) 1980s sound and style. Your submissions should be reminiscent of the music that was released at that time, with solid musicianship, authentic-sounding Rock band instrumentation, and well-performed vocals with solid '80s-style deliveries. They need Songs that sound like they could have been hits back in the day, and/or could be heard on the Classic Rock and oldies stations of today.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The selected Songs will need to be polished enough to go immediately onto the compilation album. Please be sure your Songs have great production quality and are broadcast ready as no post-mixing will be taking place. Please ONLY submit finished products!

Songs For COVID-19 Pandemic Projects

Return to List of Categories

A WIDE RANGE of HEARTFELT SONGS with Positive, Uplifting Lyrics about STRENGTH and HEROISM (with Male or Female Vocals) are needed by a leading Music Licensing Company for “pandemic projects” that will air on Middle Eastern-themed TV programs and Documentaries. They could also air anywhere in the world!

NOTE: We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. This Company is open to all commercially viable styles and genres, but they MUST have a Middle Eastern twist. Incorporating Middle Eastern instrumentation, scales, and/or melodies in your Songs should help you get in the right stylistic wheelhouse.

This company is proactively stocking up for the onslaught of TV shows, feature films, documentaries, and cable news specials being written now and going into production when the “all clear” (or mostly clear) sounds. They’re going to need several of these, as there will very likely be a boatload of those projects coming up. That means this company (and others!) will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

Please submit polished Songs with uplifting melodies and great choruses that deliver strong, positive, and inspiring messages. Think of the kinds of Songs you might hear over the end credits after the underestimated scientist finally finds the lifesaving cure! Your production styles can vary, just be sure to have great vocal performances, and genre-appropriate instrumentation and arrangements.

LYRIC Tip: Lyrically, your Songs should have inspiring themes about heroes, heroism, strength, being strong, staying strong, staying tough, sacrifice, resilience, taking care of others, coming out on top, etc. Lyrics must be in a language from a Middle Eastern region – no English, please.

Lyrics that avoid reference to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this company, and ultimately the Music Supervisors who will use them in their scenes. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share.

SEVERAL SONGS with Lyric Themes about “HEROES and HEROISM” (with Male or Female Vocals) are needed by a really cool Music Licensing Company that has tons of credits in Feature Films, TV Shows, and Commercials!

NOTE: We are also running a TAXI Listing for "Songs with Lyric Themes about Heroes and Heroism" for a different client/company, as listing #S200624HR, so please don’t confuse the two. Given that each of these companies regularly place music (much of it from TAXI members), we encourage you to increase your chances by submitting to BOTH of these Listings if you have or can create what they need!

We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful. However, this company tends to request the following commercially viable genres from TAXI, so you’d probably be wise to focus your efforts on Singer/Songwriter, Folk, Rock, Pop, and R&B Songs.

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.

Please submit well-crafted Songs with great melodies and compelling choruses that deliver strong, positive messages about Heroism. Your Songs can range anywhere from very simple, stripped-down versions to fuller productions with more instrumentation. Whichever genres or sub-genres you’re pitching, be sure to have genre-appropriate instrumentation and productions. Be sure your submissions have great melodies, well-crafted lyrics, compelling choruses, and vocals that are well-performed from start to finish.

Lyric Tip: Lyric themes should focus on one or more of the following themes, topics, concepts, and/or keywords:

  • Heroes
  • Heroism
  • Rising to the challenge
  • Fighting the good fight
  • Beating the odds
  • Staying strong
  • Facing your fears

TAXI Tip: We strongly suspect these Songs will be used in the inevitable TV shows and movies about the Coronavirus Pandemic.

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. You'd also be smart to avoid lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc. 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 sign an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material you've already signed with other libraries or publishers.

NOTE: We purposely avoided putting references in this Listing, as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting, than helpful.

Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs are usually more easily placed, but if you have really strong Ballads or Down-Tempo Songs, feel free to take a shot!

Please submit original Songs with inspiring and motivating messages about getting through tough situations in times of hardship. Whichever genres or sub-genres you’re pitching, the music should have genre-appropriate instrumentation and productions. Be sure to also have well-executed vocal performances!

TAXI Tip: We strongly suspect these Songs will be used in the inevitable TV shows and movies about the Coronavirus Pandemic that will go into production when we come out of "lockdown."

Lyric themes should focus on the concepts of (but not limited to) overcoming hardships, getting through tough times, staying strong in the face of adversity, facing challenges, beating the odds, and seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Avoiding references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this client.

Please submit compelling Songs that drive home an emotionally moving message about Love and Friendship. Think of the kinds of Songs you might hear at the end of the movie when two friends have survived the pandemic or what might play when the protagonist is finally reunited with his/her love interest! Your Songs can range anywhere from very simple, stripped-down versions, to fuller productions with more instrumentation . Having well-performed vocals could help your Songs stand out for this request!

LYRIC Tip: Lyrically, your Songs should have themes about (but not limited to): love, familial love, romantic love, making sacrifices for those we love, the importance of love, friendship, friends and the importance of having them, banding together, sticking together through thick and thin, connections, togetherness, gratitude, and support.

Lyrics that avoid reference to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to Music Supervisors. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

That means this company (and others!) will need a hefty stash of music to satisfy the demand.

Please submit emotionally moving Songs that could work well in a wide range of somber scenes dealing with sad moments. Think of the kinds of Songs you might hear in a scene when someone is at a cemetery visiting their loved one’s grave or what might play when the protagonist is in a desolate town that’s been heavily affected by the virus! Your production styles can vary, just be sure to have great vocal performances, and genre-appropriate instrumentation and arrangements.

LYRIC Tip: Lyrically, your Songs should have themes about: hopelessness, isolation, loneliness, fear of the unknown, needing others, needing help, missing friends or loved ones, needing friends or loved ones, relying on others to get you through tough times, these crazy times we're living in, the end of the world, about to lose a loved one, the loss of a loved one, etc. Lyrics must be in a language from a Middle Eastern region – no English, please.

Lyrics that avoid reference to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will likely be the most appealing to this company, and ultimately the Music Supervisors who will use them in their scenes. You'd also be smart to not have lyrics that specifically say, "virus, COVID-19, Coronavirus," etc.

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and please include a lyric sheet. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, July 9th, 2020.  TAXI # S200709SA

ORIGINAL VINTAGE HALLOWEEN SONGS that were Recorded in ANY ERA BEFORE the year 2000, 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 from any genre that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references, you might have exactly what this awesome publisher needs:

"Monster Mash" by Bobby Pickett

"Thriller" by Michael Jackson

"Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr.

"This is Halloween" - The Nightmare before Christmas

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 during any decade prior to the year 2000, 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 Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020. TAXI # S200722HW

ORIGINAL NORDIC FOLK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a U.K. Music Licensing Company with GREAT Worldwide Distribution and lots of awesome placements in Film and TV.

They’re looking for Songs in All Tempos in the general stylistic wheelhouse of these examples:

“Herr Mannelig” by Garmarna

"Iđitguovssu (Dawn Light)" by Máddji

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 you don't know the drill on typical deals, then they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

Please submit original Nordic Folk Songs that sound authentic to Nordic countries like Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, or Finland. We had to research what Nordic Folk is, but now we know, and you should too if you’re going to submit to this opportunity! Your productions should sound genuine, with Traditional Nordic Folk instruments, rhythms, and melodies if you want to nail this request. Please be sure your vocals sound authentic and are performed in a Nordic language.

You’d be smart to avoid references to brands, places, profanity, and names for this request. Do not copy the referenced acts 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 an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Songs you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. 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 to submit.

Please submit authentic-sounding Greek Songs that could be used in movies, TV shows, and travel documentaries. While arrangements can vary, authenticity in the sounds, instrumentation, performances, and style are all very important for this request. The more authentic your overall performances sound, the better your chances are of landing this request.

NOTE: Be sure to also have authentic vocal deliveries (performed in Greek) if you’d like to grab this company’s attention!

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.
