CHART-WORTHY ADULT CONTEMPORARY BALLADS with Female Vocals are needed by a Major Label Producer for a Platinum-selling Artist who's working on her next album!

Please submit fresh, original Mid-Tempo Songs that could be found on a playlist with the references our client gave us:

“Stone Cold” by Demi Lovato

“Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis

“Someone You Loved” by Lewis Capaldi

NOTE: This artist is an amazing vocalist, so please be sure your submissions show this artist how she'd shine while singing your Songs. In other words, strong "demo vocals" could help on this pitch!

Please submit heartfelt, Adult Contemporary Songs that have great lyrics, emotionally moving melodies with a bit of drama and theatrics mixed in, and big, infectious choruses. Having super strong vocal performances should help get her excited about cutting your Songs.

TAXI TIP: No teenage lyric themes for this request.

This producer is willing to listen to either stripped-down or fully-produced demos! That said, your Songs have to sound super strong - like hits in the making - especially if you’re submitting stripped-down demos!

Your recording quality needs to be clean, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD, and include Lyrics. Time permitting, the Producer himself may screen some or all of the submissions – no promises, but we're hopeful! All submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, November 27th, 2019.  TAXI #Y191127AC

CHART-WORTHY ADULT CONTEMPORARY/POP Songs with Male Vocals are needed by a Major Label A&R Executive for a Platinum, Grammy-nominated Artist working on his next album.

NOTE: A listing for this artist ran as TAXI # Y190930AC, but the label still hasn’t found what they're looking for and asked us to run another search. If you submitted to listing #Y190930AC, please send in different material this time around.

They NEED hit Songs in All Tempos, that could stylistically fit on a playlist with the following references:

“How Do You Sleep?” by Sam Smith

“Us” by James Bay 

“Almost (Sweet Music)” by Hozier

Please submit Songs with great songwriting, contemporary melodies, and choruses loaded with commercial appeal. Stripped-Down Demos with just an intimate vocal and piano/guitar might work for this pitch, but only if your compositions are really strong. Please make sure your vocal performances are convincing and also compelling enough to get this artist and label excited about cutting your Songs. Keep your top-notch production in the general stylistic range of the references.

Recording quality needs to be good enough to represent your Songs well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Please include lyrics.

“Love is Everywhere” by Wilco

“Doin' Time” by Lana Del Rey

“Love is Love” by Grace Potter

Quoting the Source: “Your Songs must sound modern and radio-ready, both structurally and lyrically. This label likes Songs recorded well enough to release as is or with minimal re-mixing.”

Please submit well-crafted A/C or AAA (Adult Album Alternative) Songs that highlight your ability to captivate an audience musically, vocally, and lyrically. Your melodies should be immediately memorable, your productions should be solid, and your choruses should scream “radio hits!” Be sure to have polished vocal performances that are expressive enough to be on par with the vibe of the references.

NOTE: This label has specifically asked to hear at least 2 Songs so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. We recommend 3 Songs, although that's not a requirement, just a suggestion.

The Label is interested in artists and bands that have gained some traction from actively working on their career. Please detail (in your bio) 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 Songs to back it up, they still want to hear you!

Please submit at least 2 Songs, online or per CD, and please include lyrics, photos, and a bio. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI A&R team member who has a strong relationship with the company and great ears – No full critiques.

A WIDE RANGE of SONGS about “Individualization and Being Unique” with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a high-quality Music Licensing Company with lots of placements in A-List Films and TV Shows.

You don’t have to limit yourself to just those ideas – those are just some suggestions they gave us to put you in the right ballpark!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity will potentially make your Songs more usable.

A WIDE RANGE of WORLD INSTRUMENTALS and/or INSTRUMENTAL CUES FROM UNIQUE PLACES are needed by a hard-working Music Library with a very long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

Quoting the Music Library's CEO: “I'm looking to add a bunch of International Albums to my catalog. I know that TAXI has members from all around the globe, and this would be a great way to tap into that. I bet we could find some really great, authentic stuff! I’m looking to work with TAXI members far and wide that are phenomenally talented at creating music that’s indigenous to their homeland and culture!”

IMPORTANT: You don't need to actually be from (or live in) the country that your music is derived from. AUTHENTICITY is key, though, so your music should at least sound like you live there. :-)

NOTE: We purposely avoided adding references to this request, as the company wants to hear Instrumentals and Instrumental Cues in All Tempos that represent all sorts of cultures, styles, and moods from all around the world, and we'd hate to stifle your creativity.  ;)

Please submit well-composed, authentic-sounding Instrumentals (and/or Instrumental Cues) that embody unique places around the world. Locations that could work for this might include (but are definitely NOT limited to) Senegal, Armenia, Siberia, Russia, Bolivia, Turkey, etc.

Solo instrumentation and ensemble work are both acceptable for this request, but please be sure you’re using instruments and arrangements commonly found in the style you are submitting to.

TAXI Tip: Your instruments should sound as authentic and organic as possible – nothing synthetic or overtly MIDI-driven, please. If you’re using samples or virtual instruments, expert use of dynamics and expression will help your music stand out from the crowd.

Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length, and running a little bit longer is fine. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this request. 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 that’s already signed with other libraries or publishers. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals (or Cues) as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, December 11th, 2019.  TAXI #Y191211WR

Anything that sounds obviously synth-y, stiff, or MIDI-driven won’t work well for this request.

Your submissions should be about 90 Seconds long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned 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.

Please listen to the following examples to get an idea of what could potentially work for this request. Don't limit yourself to just these references though because any original, orchestral-based performances of Mozart's instrumental compositions will be considered for this pitch:

Mozart - Symphony No. 41 in C Major, K

Mozart - Symphony No. 38 in D major, K. 504, "Prague"

Give them Classical Orchestral Covers of Mozart compositions that sound like the real deal! Your covers should stick to the original melodies and arrangements so they’re easily recognizable. Anything that sounds stiff, obviously quantized, or MIDI-driven won’t work for this pitch. Poorly produced and/or dated-sounding Instrumentation won’t get this company excited, so please pull out your best Virtual Instruments for this request.

All submissions should be between 2:00 to 4:00 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings will work best. Do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for the overall feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so please be sure the Instrumentals you pitch for this opportunity are NOT already signed with other Companies or Catalogs. Any sync fees will be split 50/50 with the Company. You'll get 100% of the Arranger's share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher's share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit.

Note: Please double check to make sure the material you submit is indeed a Mozart composition! In case you’re unsure, here’s a link that will help: Musical Works of Mozart

Please submit as many Instrumentals as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Thursday, December 12th, 2019.  TAXI #Y191212MZ

ORIGINAL VINTAGE RECORDINGS of LATIN SONGS in ANY Genre recorded in 1995 or before with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Film and TV Music Publisher.

We’re not providing any references for this request as they want to keep this pretty open. They’re open to hearing Latin Songs in any sub-genre ranging from Salsa, Mariachi, Banda, Bossa Nova, Bolero, Plena, Samba, Tango, Zouk, Bachata, etc., etc., etc.

TAXI Tip: You can submit old masters or old demos for this pitch! The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality. Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They’re much more interested in finding music that sounds authentic to the time period.

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, cash-up-front deals with this company. Several have even received upfront checks for $10,000-$15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the Songs signed by the Publisher.

They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS and only as long as 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. All submissions must be original compositions (no covers), and you need to own or control the Copyright and Masters to submit for this pitch. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – No full critiques.

IMPORTANT NOTE: They’re looking for live recordings, demos, and unreleased material from artists in ANY genre that used to be BIG. Not just regionally big or locally big, but acts that still have fans and streams after years have gone by!

The client is open to material from any era before 1995 in all (commercially viable) styles and genres, but they DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORDINGS, and only as long as the sound quality is reasonably good.

Whichever genre or sub-genre you’re pitching for this request, please be sure your submissions have the appropriate instrumentation and productions for that style. Great vocal performances should also help you grab this label’s attention!

NOTE: Have you inherited original old recordings that a parent or relative created? Can you prove that you own and control their use? This Label is very interested in hearing those as well, as long as they fit the prerequisites mentioned above! If you do not own the rights, the label will not be able to use the material.

The specific deal points will be negotiated directly with the Label on a song-by-song basis. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Friday, November 29th, 2019.  TAXI #Y191129UB
