UNSIGNED CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY ARTISTS and BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a European Music Library with International Distribution and a great history of Film, TV, and Commercial placements.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This Library is NOT looking for “typical library music.”  They’re looking for music that's from real, UNSIGNED, working artists or bands that they can develop a close relationship with.

Listen to the following references to get a general idea of the type of music they’re looking for:

"Gone" by Dierks Bentley

"Bathroom Floor" by Maddie & Tae

"Long Live" by Florida Georgia Line

"Should've Known Better" by Carly Pearce

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company has a strong preference for signing material from Artists and Bands who have worked with libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard music library 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 well-produced, modern Country Songs with great melodies, catchy choruses, and solid rhythms. Both more traditional-leaning material and Songs with some Pop production elements could work for this pitch. Whichever approach you take, your Songs should be extremely well-written and have lots of Country charm. Please be sure that your production is high-quality and features fresh virtual instruments and samples. Compelling, well-performed vocals paired with well-crafted lyrics could help you seal the deal with this Library.

NOTE:  This Company is looking for authentic artists and bands that they can pitch to sync opportunities, so they’re going to want to know more about you in the form of a bio. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an authentic Artist or Band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could give you an added edge in getting placements. 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 music you pitch for this opportunity is NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. If you are not interested in signing an EXCLUSIVE deal, please do not submit to this request! 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 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 Tuesday, May 18th, 2021. TAXI # S210518CN

CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY SONGS with Female Vocals are needed by a Big-Deal, Nashville-based Independent Record Label for a recently signed Artist working on her debut album!

This Label is on the hunt for top-notch Country Songs in All Tempos that could be heard on the same playlist as the following references:

"How Far Can It Go?" by Hailey Whitters feat. Trisha Yearwood

"I Know a Girl" by MaRynn Taylor

"We Were Rich" by Runaway June

Please submit well-written Country Songs that could take this new Artist to the top of the Country charts! Your submissions should have solid melodies, inviting rhythms, super memorable choruses, and a touch of traditional Country charm. Country instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best – we recommend avoiding submitting anything with Pop beats or production elements. Captivating, well-performed vocals and well-crafted, story-telling lyrics could help you seal the deal with this Label and the Artist.

Stripped-down demos and full productions are both okay to submit, as long as your Songs are great and your recordings are clean, clear, and well-balanced! 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 like, online or per CD, and 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, May 19th, 2021. TAXI # S210519CT

MODERN COUNTRY ARTISTS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an Australian Indie Record Label with distribution through Sony!

This Label is looking for Artists with Singer/Songwriter, Americana, and/or Folksy crossover potential that could appeal to fans of the following references:

"Somebody Like That" by Tenille Arts

"Bucket List" by Mitchell Tenpenny

"Should've Known Better" by Carly Pearce

"Glad You Exist" by Dan + Shay

"Things A Man Oughta Know" by Lainey Wilson

Please submit chart-worthy, modern Country Songs with great melodies, instantly memorable choruses, inviting rhythms, and descriptive, well-crafted lyrics. Your production and instrumentation should be generally similar to the references and other artists like them. If you plan on using any virtual instruments or samples, they need to be high-quality and fresh. Captivating, well-performed vocals could be the final touch to get this Label excited about you and your music!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Label is NOT looking for "Bro-Country" or Artists like Luke Combs or Kane Brown – they want to hear Artists that have more of a Singer/Songwriter, Americana, and/or Folksy crossover appeal – listen closely to the references to understand what we mean by that!

TAXI Tip: We recommend submitting at least 3 Songs for this request so the Label can see if you have depth in your material.

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your Songs well. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs 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 handled on a case-by-case basis. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch. Please send 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 Thursday, May 20th, 2021. TAXI # S210520CN

Cover Songs

Return to List of Categories

EPIC TRAILER-Style COVERS of WELL-KNOWN SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a hard-working Music Library that’s always landing placements in TV Shows, Film projects, and Movie Trailers!

Note: The company let us know that these Covers can generate Sync Fees up to $15,000 when they land in a Trailer!

This Library is on the hunt for Cover Songs that could fit in the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference we got directly from them:

"Man in the Mirror" Cover by J2

"Somebody's Watching Me" Cover by Hidden Citizens

"We Will Rock You" Cover by J2

Please submit reimagined Covers of well-known Songs that fire on all cylinders from start to finish. Your submissions should evoke a generally similar epic vibe to the references and should have three "acts" that build to a climactic crescendo. Orchestral or Orchestral Hybrid instrumentation that includes Electronic and/or Rock elements are the way to go, here. Any and all virtual instruments or samples you use should sound current, fresh, and not dated, obviously quantized, or MIDI-Driven. Well-performed, expressive vocals could be the cherry on top for this request.

TAXI Tip: We recommend sticking as close as possible to the original melodies and lyrics of the songs you cover so they're instantly recognizable to listeners!

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Library offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 Deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. You must own or control your Master to submit for this pitch.  Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Time permitting, someone from the Publishing Company may screen some or all of the submissions. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, May 19th, 2021.

EPIC EDM/ROCK/HIP-HOP SONGS with 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

"You Will Remember" by Emanuel Frank Williams, Marius De Le Mer, & Samantha Powell

Although the first reference doesn't have any rapped lyrics, this Producer would prefer to hear Songs that incorporate both rapped and sung vocals.

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 top-notch Songs that bend the limits of the EDM, Rock, and Hip-Hop genres to create a larger-than-life sound and vibe. Your submissions should have great rhythms, solid melodies, and catchy choruses and hooks. Please be sure that your production is slick and features state-of-the-art virtual instruments and samples. Confident, well-performed vocals paired with impactful lyrics could be the final touch to get this Producer excited about your Songs!

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!

Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. Do NOT copy the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, texture, and overall 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, and 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, May 24th, 2021. TAXI # S210524ED

TOP 40-Style EDM SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very successful Music Publisher with a long track record of placements in Film, TV, and Commercials.

This Publisher is searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that might fit on a playlist with the following references:

"Paradise" by Meduza feat. Dermot Kennedy

"Higher" by Clean Bandit feat. iann dior

"BED" by Joel Corry, RAYE, & David Guetta

Please submit top-tier EDM Songs that would feel at home playing on Top 40 radio stations. Great beats, catchy melodies, and instantly memorable choruses are required for this pitch. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instrumentals or samples you use are state-of-the-art and super fresh. Compelling, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal with this Publisher!

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

Quoting the Publisher: “Only artists/writers affiliated with ASCAP or BMI are eligible to submit their music for this opportunity.”

HIGH-ENERGY EDM SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a wide range of $5,000 to $100,000 placements by a top-tier Music Licensing Company that's had placements in over 650 Blockbuster Film Advertising Campaigns/Trailers!

NOTE: This Company is pretty new to requesting music from TAXI's members, so it's unlikely you have anything in their catalog yet.

This Company is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the same general stylistic wheelhouse as the following references we got directly from them:

"Feel Good" by Datsik & Zack the Lad

"Feel Something" by ILLENIUM & Excision

"GUD VIBRATIONS" by NGHTMRE & SLANDER

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company is looking more for Songwriters/Artists for ongoing relationships, rather than just a specific track for a specific placement. We suspect that if they hear a couple of your tracks and love what you're doing, they'll ask you to submit more tracks on an ongoing basis. You could also get added to their email list so you can respond to future briefs as they come in!

We recommend submitting 2 to 3 Songs so they can see if you have depth in your material.

Please submit modern EDM Songs that are rhythmically and melodically engaging from start to finish. Your submissions should have slick beats, danceable rhythms, great drops, and lots of great energy. Solid melodies and catchy hooks are musts for this pitch, as well. Electronic instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best, but that doesn't mean you need to exactly emulate them -- just think of their instrumentation as a "foundation" of sorts. This Company is looking for the kind of EDM music that could well in the context of Blockbuster Film Trailers – give them that!

NOTE: Both Songs with Pop Song structure (like the second reference) and Songs with more repetitive, sparse lyrics/sung melodies (like the first and third reference) are okay to submit for this request!

IMPORTANT: Do NOT submit any tracks with spoken producer tags/watermarks as they're not usable for film and TV placements.

Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could make your Songs more appealing. 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. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Since this Company works in the Blockbuster Trailer industry, sync fees for placements they generate could range from $5,000 to $100,000 per track depending on duration used, media type, and territory. Those sound like some pretty sweet payouts to us!

This Company offers a NON-Exclusive, 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share for any placements they generate. 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 Thursday, May 27th, 2021. TAXI # S210527MM

"Deliver Me From Wondering Why" by Nation of Language

Please send well-produced Retrowave Songs with solid rhythms, well-crafted melodies, memorable choruses, and super cool, retro-inspired Electronic instrumentation. Please be sure that your production and all virtual instruments and samples you use are high-quality and fresh. Compelling, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

TAXI Tip: Retro-inspired does NOT mean dated – your submissions should not sound like they came straight off of a Giorgio Moroder record. Take those nostalgic sounds and pair them with modern production – that's what this Library is looking for!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity 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. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. 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. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is not already signed with other Libraries or Catalogs.

"Bir Yaralı Kuştum" by Gaye Su Akyol

If you use any virtual instruments or samples, please be sure that they're fresh and high-quality. Well-performed, compelling vocals with some added Indie flair could be the cherry on top!

NOTE: This Label is NOT looking for World music artists or bands. They're looking for cool Indie Rock acts that have elements of international music – whether that be in the vocal style, instrumentation, melodies, or rhythms. If that description fits your music, send it in!

This Label has specifically asked to hear at least 2 Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

The Label is interested in artists and bands that have gained some traction from actively working on their careers. Please detail (in your bio) what you are doing with your career. Include any impressive touring, fan base, sales, streaming, or social media figures. That said – if you’re a new artist or band just starting out and don’t have much of a story or track record, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer tracks to back it up, they still want to hear you!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced so that it represents your tracks well. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for texture and tone.

Lots of MINIMALISTIC, TRADITIONAL SCANDINAVIAN INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful International Music Licensing Company with global distribution through a huge music conglomerate!

They’re open to hearing a range of traditional styles from the following countries: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Åland Islands, and the Faroe Islands.

TAXI Tip: Want to be a standout with little competition in a particular genre in this company's catalog? Here's your chance! Less competition = More possible placements!

This Company is searching for Instrumental Cues in the general ballpark of these references:

"Krivo polska" by Hazelius Hedin, Esbjörn Hazelius, & Johan Hedin

"Satavuotinen Sakka" by Martti Pokela (from 1:00)

Please submit Instrumental Cues that capture the essence of Traditional Scandinavian music in a sparse and minimalistic way. Your Cues should have authentic-sounding rhythms, melodies, and instrumentation. Incorporating traditional instruments like the Kantele, Fiddle, or Flute could help your pieces feel more authentic. If you're using any virtual instruments to replace organic ones, they need to sound like the real thing – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-driven will work, here. Build your Cues around a simple motif, and create a subtle sense of movement and dynamics by layering instruments in and out as they progress. Remember, simple is best for this pitch!

Quoting the Music Library: “We are looking for Cues that are sparse and somewhat simple. Only 4 to 6 instruments maximum. Keep them simple and try to introduce some edit points along the tracks. Very high bar, in terms of realism. Meaning, if any of the instruments sound too 'MIDI' then the Cues should be rejected.”

Your submissions need to be around 2 minutes long (nothing that runs 3 or 4 minutes, please) with non-faded, buttoned endings. 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. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit 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 Monday, May 17th, 2021. TAXI # S210517SC

Although one of the references has vocals, please submit Instrumental Cues only for this request.

Please submit Instrumental Cues that capture the essence of Traditional Russian music in a sparse and minimalistic way. Your Cues should have authentic-sounding rhythms, melodies, and instrumentation. Incorporating traditional instruments like the Balalaika, Domra, or Bayan could help your pieces feel more authentic. If you're using any virtual instruments to replace organic ones, they need to sound like the real thing – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-driven will work, here. Build your Cues around a simple motif, and create a subtle sense of movement and dynamics by layering instruments in and out as they progress. Remember, simple is best for this pitch!

ANTHEMIC INSTRUMENTAL CUES in a Range of Styles/Genres 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!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S210419AN, but the Library didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S210419AN, please send different material this time around.

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

Instrumental Examples

Although one of the references has vocals, please submit Instrumental Cues only for this pitch.

Quoting the Library: "We're open to hearing several styles/genres. The key is that the pieces deliver that clearly 'anthemic' feel through both the composition and the production."

Please send well-produced Instrumental Cues that have an overall anthemic vibe and sound. They're open to hearing material in a range of styles. That being said, your submissions should still be commercially appealing. We recommend sticking with popular genres like Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, EDM, etc. Craft your Cues around one clear motif, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. Both your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use should be top-notch and modern – nothing dated or low-quality will work.

TAXI Tip: You can use some simple, non-lyrical vocal chants to add some additional anthemic energy to your Tracks. Please do not submit full vocal performance songs, as only vocal elements like, “whoas,” “yeahs,” “heys,” “oohs,” etc., will work for this pitch, but they're not required.

All submissions should be about 2 minutes long, give or take. Good edit points and non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are required. 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.

NOTE: This company is more interested in composers who have experience writing full albums for Music Libraries than people who only produce one or two tracks every now and then. They also have a strong preference for working with composers who have worked with music libraries and music licensing companies and understand how typical music library deals are structured. If that's not you, they politely ask that you don't submit to this request.

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

This is an Exclusive deal, so 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 Saturday, May 22nd, 2021. TAXI # S210522AN

MODERN SYNTH POP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful Music Licensing Company that lands placements on hundreds of shows on Major Networks every year!

This Company is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

WARNING: Some of the following references have graphic and explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.

"7 rings" by Ariana Grande

"no tears left to cry" by Ariana Grande

"thank u, next" by Ariana Grande

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

Please submit top-notch Pop Instrumental Cues with Synth-based instrumentation that's generally similar to the references. 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. Please be sure that your production is slick and features modern, state-of-the-art sounds – nothing dated will work for this pitch!

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

This Company does both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals, and they will be offered on a case-by-case basis. If you’re inclined to sign an Exclusive deal, please don’t submit material that’s already signed with other libraries or publishers for this pitch. You must own or control your Master Recording to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD.

HIGH-ENERGY EDM INSTRUMENTALS are needed for a wide range of $5,000 to $100,000 placements by a top-tier Music Licensing Company that's had placements in over 650 Blockbuster Film Advertising Campaigns/Trailers!

NOTE: This Company is pretty new to requesting music from TAXI's members, so it's unlikely you have anything in their catalog yet.

They're looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals that could fit on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"Feel Good" by Datsik & Zack the Lad

"Feel Something" by ILLENIUM & Excision

"GUD VIBRATIONS" by NGHTMRE & SLANDER

Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch. Non-Lyrical, "Vocalizations" like Woahs, Heys, etc. are OK for this pitch!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company is looking more for Composer/Producers for ongoing relationships, rather than just a specific track for a specific placement. We suspect that if they hear a couple of your tracks and love what you're doing, they'll ask you to submit more tracks on an ongoing basis. You could also get added to their email list so you can respond to future briefs as they come in!

We recommend submitting 2 to 3 Instrumentals so they can see if you have depth in your material.

Please submit modern EDM Instrumentals that are rhythmically and melodically engaging from start to finish. Your submissions should have slick beats, danceable rhythms, killer drops, and lots of great energy. Electronic instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best, but that doesn't mean you need to exactly emulate them – just think of their instrumentation as a "foundation" of sorts. This Company is looking for the kind of EDM music that could work well in the context of Blockbuster Film Trailers – give them that!

NOTE: Do NOT submit any tracks with spoken producer tags/watermarks as they're not usable for film and TV placements.

All submissions should be about 2 to 3 minutes in length (give or take). Non-faded, stinger endings will work best. Please do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for overall feel, texture, and tone. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Since this Company works in the Blockbuster Trailer industry, sync fees for placements they generate could range from $5,000 to $100,000 per track depending on duration used, media type, and territory. Those sound like some pretty sweet payouts to us!

This Company offers a NON-Exclusive, 50/50 deal. You’ll get 50% of any applicable sync fees and 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share for any placements they generate. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please submit as many Instrumentals 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, May 25th, 2021. TAXI # S210525ED

"Oromizhon" by Turgan Alimatov

Please submit well-composed Traditional Instrumental Cues that capture the sound and essence of whichever Central Asian country you choose in a minimalsparse way. If you're using any virtual instruments to replace organic ones, they need to sound like the real thing – nothing stiff or obviously MIDI-driven will work, here. Incorporating traditional instruments like the Rubab, Sato, Dauylpaz, etc. into your pieces could help add to their authenticity factor. Build your Cues around a simple motif, and create a subtle sense of movement and dynamics by layering instruments in and out as they progress. Remember, simple is best for this pitch!

Quoting the Music Library: “We are looking for Cues that are sparse and somewhat simple. Only 4 to 6 instruments maximum.

VINTAGE INSTRUMENTAL COVERS of PUBLIC DOMAIN CHRISTMAS MUSIC in ALL GENRES that were RECORDED BEFORE 2009 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

We’re not providing any references for this request, as the requesting company wants to keep this pretty open.

Quoting the Company: "'50's, '80's, 2000's! R&B! Pop! Punk! Crooner! We want it all!"

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality, and you can submit old masters OR old demos – as long as the recording quality is reasonably good.

Please submit top-notch Instrumental Public Domain Christmas Covers that capture the joy of the holiday season! Excellent musicianship, high-quality, genre/era-appropriate arrangements, solid intonation (nothing pitchy!), and inviting rhythms are required for this pitch. Although this Publisher is open to hearing music from all genres, your submissions should be clearly Christmasy – your recordings should stay as close to the original melodies as possible so they're recognizable to listeners, as well!

NOTE: Because the bar will be high for this request, we've given the screeners this mandate: Is it GREAT? Can the client use it? Would it work well for placements in Film and TV?

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 tracks signed by the Publisher.

Make sure your submissions were actually recorded BEFORE 2009, 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, 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 your Instrumentals are in the Public Domain, here’s a link that will help: Public Domain Christmas Song List.

You need to own or control the Master recordings to submit for this pitch. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit as many Instrumentals 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 Sunday, June 6th, 2021.  TAXI # S210606PD

HIGH-ENERGY HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a hard-working Music Library (with distribution in over 40 countries) that’s constantly landing cool placements in TV Shows.

This Library is looking for Songs that would fall in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from them:

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

"I Believe That We Will Win (World Anthem)" by Pitbull

"Masterpiece" by DaBaby

"Bend It" by Kayykilo

Quoting the Library: "We do NOT want to hear anything with loops, even if they're royalty-free. Sparse explicit lyrics are okay; however, you must have a clean version ready to go as well."

Please submit modern Hip-Hop Songs with catchy hooks, killer beats, tons of energy, and unapologetic vocals with compelling lyrical flows. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and current-sounding. Imagine the type of Hip-Hop you might hear in a sports highlight reel – that's the type of music they're looking for!

NOTE: Do NOT submit any tracks with spoken producer tags/watermarks as they're not usable for film and TV placements.

Lyrics that don’t reference specific names, dates, times, brands, and places will make your Songs more "sync-friendly." 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. Do NOT submit any material with pre-made loops or authorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Library offers an Exclusive deal, and has a strong preference for signing material from songwriters who have worked for libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard deals work. They're also more interested in signing artists they can work closely with – the kind that would be able to deliver an album’s worth of production music within 8 to 10 weeks of signing with them – than songwriters that only turn in 1 or 2 tracks every couple months. This is a great opportunity to build an ongoing relationship with a great company!

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

CONTEMPORARY HIP-HOP SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Film/TV Music Publisher for an (up to) $5,000 placement in Family-friendly Netflix Movie.

This Publisher is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from them:

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

"Best Friend" by Saweetie feat. Doja Cat

"ROCKSTAR" by DaBaby feat. RODDY RICH

"Run It Up" by Lil Tjay feat. Offset & Moneybagg Yo

Quoting the Publisher: "The story is based in Philly, so the producers are thinking East Coast/Southern Hip-Hop style for this."

Please send top-notch Hip-Hop Songs with slick beats, catchy hooks, and lots of great energy and swagger. Your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use should be high-quality and cutting-edge. Confident, well-performed vocals with compelling lyrical flows could be the cherry on top!

DARK POST-ROCK ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a prominent Los Angeles-based Independent Record Label that’s currently looking for talented new artists to sign.

This Label is on the hunt for acts that would appeal to fans of the following references we got directly from them:

"Olsen Olsen" by Sigur Rós

"Ritchie Sacramento" by Mogwai

Quoting the Label: “We're looking for Post-Rock bands with big, majestic tracks driven by loud layers of guitars and keyboards/software-generated instrumentation with a dark mood - regardless of if it's super heavy or more mellow the mood has to be very dark."

Please send well-crafted Post-Rock Songs that display your epic, moody sound and style. Your submissions should have solid guitars, majestic arrangements, and great synths. Be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are competitive with the references. Captivating, well-performed vocals and memorable melodies and choruses are musts for this pitch, as well.

This Label has specifically asked to hear at least 2 Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material.

The Label is interested in Artists and Bands that have gained some traction from actively working on their careers. Please detail (in your bio) what you are doing with your career. Include any impressive touring, fan base, sales, streaming, or social media figures. That said – if you’re a new Artist or Band just starting out and don’t have much of a story or track record, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer tracks to back it up, they still want to hear you!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced so that it represents your Songs well. Do NOT copy the referenced examples in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for texture and tone.

Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD, and please include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened by a TAXI A&R Team Member who has a strong relationship with the company and great ears.

MODERN HEAVY METAL ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the Rock Division of a U.K.-based Record Label. They're on the prowl for some exciting acts to sign, and we'd love for you to be one of them!!

Please listen to the references below to get an idea of what might get this really cool Record Label interested:

"Abyss" by Unleash The Archers

"Memento Mori" by Lamb of God

"Ride Into The Light" by Spirit Adrift

Please submit current-sounding Heavy Metal Songs that showcase your distinctive sound, style, and personality. Your submissions should have killer rhythms and authentic-sounding Metal instrumentation with excellent musicianship. Production-wise, your Songs should be on the same general playing field as the references and others like them. Dramatic, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal with this Label!

They’re interested in artists and bands that are actively building their careers. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an artist or band that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record yet, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

TAXI Tip: We recommend that you submit at least 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, and please 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 (PDT) on Monday, May 24th, 2021. TAXI # S210524HM

ORIGINAL 1970's or 1980's-Style NEW WAVE ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an Indie Label with Major Distribution. This client is currently on the hunt for Songs to include in one of their incredibly popular compilations!

NOTE: We previously ran a similar request as TAXI Listing #S210319NW, but the Label didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S210319NW, please send different material this time around. Please read this Listing carefully for tips on how to nail this request!

This Label is looking for original Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"My Best Friend's Girl" by The Cars

"One Way Or Another" by Blondie

"What I Like About You" by The Romantics

"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar

This Record Label would  prefer to hear original vintage pieces that actually date back to the 1970's and 1980's, and the sound quality must be reasonably good. They will  also consider recent recordings; however, they must authentically sound like they were recorded around the same time as the references.  They’re not looking for in-the-box Pro Tools Projects that sound like they were recorded recently. They want to hear a Raw and Real performance by authentic musicians.

IMPORTANT: This Label is NOT looking for Synth-based tracks à la Gary Numan and Devo. They ONLY want to hear Guitar-driven tracks – listen closely to the references to really get an idea of what they want to hear!

Please send top-notch Rock Songs that sound like they're straight out of the New Wave era in the 1970's and 1980's. Your submissions should have great rhythms, catchy melodies, excellent musicianship, and lots of fun energy. Typical New Wave-style, Guitar-driven instrumentation will suit your submissions best, and your production should be high-quality. Well-performed, authentic-sounding vocals are required for this pitch.

Universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, and brands would be optimal for this pitch. 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. If you're submitting vintage recordings, the sound quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Era-appropriate Broadcast Quality will work just fine.

The deal points will be negotiated directly with the Label on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened by a TAXI Screener who has a strong relationship with the Record Label Owner. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, May 26th, 2021.

Singer/Songwriter

Return to List of Categories

A Range of UNSIGNED MODERN SINGER/SONGWRITER ARTISTS with Male or Female Vocals is needed by a European Music Library with International Distribution and a great history of film, TV, and commercial placements.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This Library is NOT looking for “typical library music.”  They’re looking for music that's from real, UNSIGNED, working artists that they can develop a close relationship with.

Listen to the following references to get a general idea of the type of music they’re looking for:

"Riptide" by Vance Joy

"Falling Asleep At The Wheel" by Holly Humberstone

"Easily" by Bruno Major

"Perfect" by Ed Sheeran

"Skinny Love" by Bon Iver

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company has a strong preference for signing material from Artists who have worked with libraries and licensing companies in the past and understand how standard music library 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 Singer/Songwriter Songs with inviting rhythms, well-crafted melodies, and memorable choruses. Captivating, well-performed vocals are a must for this request, as well. Both stripped-down arrangements and more filled-out productions are fine to submit for this request – as are Songs that lean towards the Indie or mainstream sides of the Singer/Songwriter spectrum (and anywhere in between). Whichever approach you decide to take, your Songs should have plenty of commercial appeal and your production should be fresh and top-notch. If you’re planning on using any virtual instruments or samples, they should be high-quality and modern.

NOTE:  This Company is looking for authentic artists that they can pitch to sync opportunities, so they’re going to want to know more about you in the form of a bio. In your bio, please include any touring, fan base, sales, streaming, and social media figures you may have. If you’re an authentic Artist that’s just starting out and you don’t have much of a story or track record, but you DO have an amazing sound and some killer Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

Lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could give you an added edge. 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 music you pitch for this opportunity is NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. If you are  not interested in signing an EXCLUSIVE deal, please do not submit to this request!  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 Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

HEARTFELT SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Lyrics about "The Light at the End of the Tunnel" are needed for a TAXI COMPILATION going directly to a whole bunch of our favorite Music Licensing Companies for placements in Post-COVID-19 and other Film and TV programming.

Note: Now that productions have started shooting again, we think there will be a wave of TV movies about the pandemic. Many of them are going to need this type of material!

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.

Here are 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:

  • Better days ahead!
  • Light at the end of the tunnel
  • Rising from the ashes
  • Seeing you again
  • Re-building
  • Reconnecting
  • Being with friends and family
  • Pick ourselves up
  • Filling our days with light and love
  • When we can finally hug each other again
  • Hand in hand
  • Starting to live again
  • Getting out and living life again
  • The promise that a new day brings
  • We weathered the storm, now…
  • Getting back to normal
  • Having hope
  • When that new day finally dawns
  • What lies ahead

Please submit well-produced Songs with uplifting, well-crafted lyrics in the general vein of the topics listed above. Stripped-down arrangements or more filled-out, fully-produced songs could both work for this pitch. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production and any and all virtual instruments or samples you use should be high-quality and modern. Heartfelt, well-performed vocals, moving melodies, and solid choruses are all musts for this pitch!

IMPORTANT Lyric Tip: We've been told by our clients that they have more of a demand for positive, uplifting lyrics than sad themes about loss, pain, etc., so please submit Songs with optimistic lyrical themes and avoid sending any "downers."

Also try to avoid lyrics that are "too on-the-nose" with phrases like, "Glad the pandemic is behind us." Non-specific lyrics that are more like the suggestions above will work better.

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 and TV? Would TAXI's Music Licensing and Music Library clients be happy to hear this on the playlist we send them? The bar will be very 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 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.

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 publishing 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 Saturday, May 29th, 2021. TAXI # S210529HF

MODERN, FOLKSY SINGER/SONGWRITER ARTISTS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an Australian Indie Record Label with distribution through Sony!

CHECK THIS OUT! This Label just signed one of our Members, and they're excited to find more great acts through TAXI!

This Label is looking for Artists that could appeal to fans of the following references and other acts you'd find on a playlist with them:

"Front Porch" by Joy Williams

"July" by Noah Cyrus

"Sword From The Stone" by Passenger

"Weeds" by Lee DeWyze

"As A Child" by Madeline The Person

Please send modern, folksy Singer/Songwriter Songs that showcase your ability to captivate an audience. Your submissions should have captivating melodies, inviting rhythms, memorable choruses, and lots of folksy charm. We think both stripped-down performances and filled-out arrangements could be appealing to this company as long your Songs are really well-written and fresh. Top your Songs off with honest, well-crafted lyrics and expressive, well-performed vocals, and you could be just what this Label is looking for!

TAXI Tip: We recommend submitting at least 3 Songs for this request so the Label can see if you have depth in your material.

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your Songs well. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs 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 handled on a case-by-case basis. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch. Please send 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 (PDT) on Monday, May 31st, 2021. TAXI # S210531SS

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

Please submit modern Singer/Songwriter Songs with inviting melodies, super memorable choruses, well-crafted lyrics, and expressive, well-performed vocals. Stripped-down performances or more filled-out arrangements could both be appealing to this Publisher.

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

Quoting the Publisher: “Only artists/writers affiliated with ASCAP or BMI are eligible to submit their music for this opportunity.”

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 that’s already signed with other libraries or publishers.

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE LATIN SONGS that were RECORDED BETWEEN 1950 and 1979 with Male, Female, or Group Vocals are needed by a successful Music Library that gets tons of placements in TV Shows, Films, and Movie Trailers.

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S210411VL, but the Library didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S210411VL, please send different material this time around.

We’re not providing any references for this request, as we think they might be more limiting than helpful. All genres and sub-genres of Latin music from any Latin country are on the table for this request as long as they were recorded between 1950 and 1979.

Please submit top-notch, vintage Latin Recordings with solid Latin rhythms, captivating melodies, and era/style-appropriate arrangements. Your submissions' instrumentation and musicianship should be top-notch and dripping with Latin flair, as well. Compelling, well-performed vocals performed in Spanish, Portuguese, or any native Latin language (a little English sprinkled in is fine!) could help you seal the deal with this Library.

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. Era-Appropriate Broadcast Quality will work just fine.

This Company does both EXCLUSIVE and NON-EXCLUSIVE deals, and they will be offered on a case-by-case basis. You must own or control your Copyright and Master Recordings to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!

Return to List of Categories

A Wide Range of HEARTFELT WORLD MUSIC ARTISTS or BANDS with Male or Female Vocals is needed by an eclectic Independent Record Label that’s eagerly looking for fresh new talent.

Due to the unique nature of this request, we didn't include references as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful. Your submissions can come from (and feature languages from) places like (but not limited to): China, Japan, France, Ireland, India, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, etc, etc, etc.

Quoting the Label: "We're looking for acts that have true talent, originality/uniqueness, and a heartfelt quality/sweetness to them."

Send them beautifully crafted World Music Songs with captivating rhythms, great melodies, and heartfelt vocals that will connect with listeners. Your submissions can range from somewhat stripped-down performances to fuller productions, and anything in between. Just be sure that they capture the essence and authentic sound and vibe of the Country/Region/Continent they come from.

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

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!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, clear, and well-balanced to represent your Songs well.

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 (PDT) on Saturday, May 29th, 2021. TAXI # S210529WR
