VERY IMPORTANT: Your Songs MUST have lyric themes about Life In The Dark, Fun in the Dark, Light in the Dark, Find the light in the dark, Dance in the Dark, Play in the Dark, etc. to be considered for this request. Any Songs that don't will be automatically returned.

No publisher splits. You'll keep 100% of the income and retain all rights!! Also, although the creative fee for this placement is relatively low, this opportunity has the potential to give your music TONS of exposure as TikTok has 1 BILLION active users – yes, you read that right!

This world-class Ad Agency is on the hunt for Mid-Tempo Songs that could fit on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"Must've Been" by Chromeo

"Juice" by Lizzo

"By Your Side" by Calvin Harris & Tom Grennan

Quoting the Ad Agency: "The project is focused on bringing awareness to nations in the world that go most of their day without any electricity. Lack of power goes beyond life in the dark. Families can’t cook, refrigerate food, heat their homes or do their homework. We need an idea and a message that will help break through in a positive way. Something that draws attention to the issue that is fun, engaging and optimistic. Music has the power to do all of those things. Lyric themes we'd like to hear are Life In The Dark, Fun in the Dark, Light in the Dark, Find the light in the dark, Dance in the Dark, Play in the Dark, etc. – be sure that all of these themes still carry a super positive, feel-good vibe – we need to make being in the dark feel like an okay thing! Strong, creative lyrics are key."

Please send modern Songs that are bursting with personality and fun energy! Your submissions should have great melodies, funky instrumentation, instantly memorable hooks, and infectious rhythms. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are top-notch, high-quality, and fresh. Exuberant, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal!

All submissions should be about 2 to 3 minutes long, give or take. Avoid references to specific brands, places, names, dates, times, and profanity. 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.

The estimated license fee for this placement will be up to $2,000, depending on the ultimate usage. This is a Direct-to-Ad-Agency pitch. You’ll keep 100% ownership of the Copyright and Master Recording, but you won’t be able to license your Song with any other parties for a year. You must own or control the Master and Composition rights 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 a TAXI A&R Team Member who has a direct relationship with the Ad Agency. NO DEADLINE EXTENSIONS for this request. Sorry folks, but we're on an extremely tight deadline, so please don't ask!  Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, October 25th, 2021. TAXI # S211025FN

CONTEMPORARY, EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT SONGS (IN ALL GENRES) with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a great Publisher with an awesome track record of really big placements in TV Commercials!

This awesome Company is open to hearing feel-good Songs in most of the popular/commercially viable genres, including Pop, Rock, EDM, Singer-Songwriter, Folk, R&B/Soul, Rap/Hip-Hop, Country, etc. We recommend avoiding submitting anything that doesn't have a lot of mainstream appeal.

This Publisher is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that would fall within the general range of the following references (don't limit yourself to just these):

"Get Dat" by Rayelle

"Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray Dalton

"Every Little Thing" by Russell Dickerson

"Talk Too Much" by COIN

"Butter" by BTS

Please submit upbeat Songs with great melodies, infectious rhythms, and super catchy hooks.

Well-performed vocals with lots of fun energy could help you seal the deal. This Publisher wants music that could get viewer's excited about what's being advertised on screen – give them that!

Please avoid lyrics that are moody, dark, or depressing, as well as anything that has specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and/or profanity. Simple, impactful, feel-good lyrics that would work well in TV commercials are the order of the day! Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Christmas/Holiday

Return to List of Categories

ORIGINAL, CONTEMPORARY CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a new “TV/Film sync-oriented” Record Label started by a Multi-Platinum Producer and a team of very successful industry veterans.

NOTE: Your submissions can be in just about any popular, commercially viable Genre: Singer/Songwriter, R&B/Soul, Pop, Rock, Country, EDM, Hip-Hop, Folk, etc., etc., etc.

This Label is looking for Songs in All Tempos in the general wheelhouse of the following references:

"Underneath the Tree" by Kelly Clarkson

"Christmas In The Country" by Thomas Rhett

"25th" by Tori Kelly

"Cozy Little Christmas" by Katy Perry

Please send warm, festive Christmas/Holiday Songs with compelling melodies, catchy choruses, solid arrangements, and a heaping dose of Christmas spirit! Your production can range from simple, stripped-down performances to full-blown productions, depending on the genres you choose to submit. Whichever approach you decide to take, be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are top-notch and contemporary. Expressive, well-performed vocals could be the final touch to get this Label excited about your Songs!

Lyric Tip: It'd be a good idea to submit songs with lyric 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! Also, you'd be wise to avoid any references to specific places, names, brands, dates, and profanity.

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 to get you in the stylistic ballpark, of the overall texture and tone.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company has specifically asked that you only send unreleased Songs that aren't already commercially available. If you've already released them on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., or if they’re already published or administered by CD Baby Pro, Tune Core, etc., please do not submit them.

REALLY IMPORTANT: This company is not just looking for a song or two from you. They’re looking to build professional, ongoing relationships with artists who are highly committed to working hard, and have the drive and ability to deliver a lot of super-strong material. Having the right type of image and “looking the part” could be icing on the cake, but first and foremost, it's about having great music and strong work ethic!

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis between you and the Label. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Include lyrics, a photo, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, October 28th, 2021. TAXI # S211028CH

Country

Return to List of Categories

NEO-TRADITIONAL COUNTRY SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Big-Deal, Nashville-based Independent Record Label for an up-and-coming Artist working on his 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:

"Honky-Tonk" by Josiah Siska

"Hot Beer" by Dillon Carmichael

"Palamino Princess" by Tyler Booth

Please submit Neo-Traditional Country Songs with great melodies, singalong choruses, and engaging rhythms. Instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best – think fiddles, pedal steel, guitars, etc. We recommend avoiding submitting anything with Pop beats or production elements. Story-telling lyrics could be the final touch to get this Label and the artist excited about cutting your tracks.

TAXI Tip: Vocals can often be the thing that makes or breaks a Song pitch. Make sure that the vocals on your Songs are well-performed, compelling, and have a more traditional-sounding delivery if you want to get this Artist and the Label excited about your tracks! This Artist sings in a baritone range, so submitting Songs that sit in his vocal range could definitely give you an added edge!

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 (PST) on Wednesday, November 10th, 2021. TAXI # S211110CN

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

"Lil Bit" by Nelly feat. Florida Georgia Line

"Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X

"Roots" by Lathan Warlick feat. RaeLynn

This Label is looking for Artists that could be the next big thing. They won't be looking as much for polished, perfect production as much as they're looking for super fresh, marketable Acts with great, chart-worthy Songs! Your production and recording quality still needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well.

Please send modern Songs that seamlessly combine Country instrumentation with Hip-Hop beats and production to create a unique, chart-worthy sound and style. Engaging rhythms, catchy hooks, and well-crafted lyrics are all essentials for this request. Your vocal performances should be top-notch and energetic, as well.

We recommend submitting at least TWO to THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. 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 send current-sounding Indie Folk Songs with great melodies, engaging rhythms, super catchy choruses, and lots of great energy!

Your production should be top-notch and fresh, as well. Expressive, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

Lyric Tip: We think that emotionally upbeat lyric themes will work better than anything that's melancholy or negative for this pitch.

This Company didn’t specify any particular lyric themes, but you’d be wise to avoid names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. 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 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 for this pitch.

BUILDING, EMOTIONAL TRAILER-Style INSTRUMENTALS 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 #S210725EM, but the Library didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S210725EM, please send different material this time around.

NEW TIPS FROM THE LIBRARY TO HELP YOU NAIL THIS PITCH: "Many composers throw in way too many ideas and are not focused on ONE CENTRAL MOTIF: they try to keep things interesting by adding new harmonic lines and elements (melodies, even improvisations, etc) instead of focusing on the production and textures. What I'm looking for is basically: obvious production music (in form and structure), that sounds like commercial music (production style)." Put simply, keep it SIMPLE! We know that other Libraries like to receive music with complementary A and B sections, but this Library is NOT one of them – stick with ONE CENTRAL MOTIF per submission, please!

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

Quoting the Library: "We're looking for Instrumentals with a building structure that starts subtle and grows into a big, epic resolution. That said, each Instrumental should have one consistent motif and always stay very underscore-friendly, ie: No prominent melodies at all. Rather, your arrangements should keep the pieces interesting by creating what we call 'sound substance' - sound tinkering, layering, development within existing elements (e.g. percussion), etc. So, the development should happen through the arrangement and the production and NOT by adding additional harmonic elements. Style-wise, your tracks should be much like trailer Instrumentals based on the sections and build, but with a clear hybrid approach and not overly orchestral/classical in instrumentation (but also not getting synth-y). Building, epic themes with a cinematic feel and a hybrid approach are what we want to hear. Again, imagine 'Arise From Ashes', Rebirth, etc."

Please submit well-composed Instrumentals that have an overall epic, emotional sound and feel. Your submissions should have polished production, high-quality virtual instruments and samples, and 3 "acts" that build to a climactic ending.

All submissions should be around 2 to 3 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 has a strong preference for composers who understand music licensing companies and how typical music library deals are structured. If that's not you, they politely ask that you don't submit to this request. Also, if you're an experienced producer that can deliver the goods in this genre, they're especially interested in hearing what you can do!

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.

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 Monday, October 25th, 2021. TAXI # S211025TR

UPLIFTING NEO-FOLK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a very successful boutique Music Library that's distributed by Universal for placements in Promotions, Advertising, and other TV Programming.

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Listing #S210722NF, but the Library didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #S210722NF, 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

Quoting the Library: "Make sure there are options for editors by having different sections (ie: build-ups, accent sections, dynamic section...etc). Avoid any (prominent) leads or anything that's too distracting; rather, use catchy little motifs/phrases that are embedded in the chord progression/arrangement."

Please submit well-produced Neo-Folk Instrumentals with an overall uplifting, feel-good vibe and sound. 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. Acoustic-based instrumentation like acoustic guitars, light percussion, piano, stomps, strings, etc. will suit your submissions best. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and modern – nothing dated or synthetic-sounding will work for this pitch.

TAXI Tip: Some non-lyric vocal parts like "oohs," "ahhs," etc. could help add some extra care-free energy to your tracks. They're not a requirement, but the references they gave have them, so listen to see how they've used them!

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.

INSTRUMENTAL CLASSICAL GUITAR COVERS of PUBLIC DOMAIN CLASSICAL PIECES are needed by a very successful Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements for TAXI members in Hit TV Shows!

This Library is on the hunt for a bunch of Public Domain Instrumentals that are in the general stylistic ballpark of these references:

"Grande Sonata in C Major, Op. 22: III. Minuetto" by Fernando Sor

"Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007: I. Prélude" by Bach

"Fughetta, Op. 113" by Mauro Giuliani

Quoting the Library: "Some additional Classical instrumentation in the pieces is okay, but guitar must be the focal point."

Please send Public Domain Classical Guitar Instrumentals with solid arrangements and top-notch musicianship. Authenticity is key for this pitch, so we don't recommend using any virtual instruments for this request unless they are indistinguishable from the real thing. Please be sure that your production is high-quality and polished, as well. You can submit Covers that were originally written for Classical guitar or Classical Guitar arrangements of other recognizable Classical pieces, but you’d be wise to stick to the original melodies so your pieces are easily recognizable.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please double-check to make sure the pieces you submit are truly in the Public Domain!

All submissions should be between 90 seconds and 4 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned endings are recommended. Broadcast Quality is needed.

IMPORTANT: Your Submissions can NOT be commercially released on Spotify, Apple Music, etc. OR 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, etc.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You must own or control your Master. 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. 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 Thursday, October 28th, 2021. TAXI # S211028PD

STOMP-CLAP INSTRUMENTALS with NON-LYRICAL VOCAL CHANTS are needed by an EXCLUSIVE, LA-based Music Licensing Company that specializes in music for Movie Trailers, TV, Films, and Video Games.

This Company is looking for Instrumentals in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references we got directly from them:

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

"Superhuman" by Campfire feat. Shane Eli

"The Drum" by The Seige

"Human" by Rag'n'Bone Man

Although the references have lyrical vocals, please submit tracks with non-lyrical vocals only – think ahs, oohs, whoops, yeahs, etc.

Quoting the Company: "We're looking for stomp-clap, "We Will Rock You"-type rhythms with anthemic vocal chants, distorted bass and guitars, and fun, aggressive sound design rhythms and fills."

Please submit fresh Stomp-Clap Instrumentals with gritty guitar riffs, driving rhythms, and lots of aggressive energy. Judging by the references, we think a combo of Rock and Hip-Hop instrumentation/elements will suit your submissions best. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are modern and high-quality. All non-lyrical vocal chants should be well-performed (nothing pitchy!) and energetic, as well.

Submissions should be about 90 seconds to 3 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this request CANNOT be signed with other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you'd like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

PIANO-Based UNDERSCORE 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!

NOTE: We previously ran this request as TAXI Dispatch Listing #D210714UN , but the Library didn't find what they were looking for. If you submitted to listing #D210714UN, please send different material this time around.

NEW TIPS FROM THE LIBRARY TO HELP YOU NAIL THIS PITCH: "Many composers throw in way too many ideas and are not focused on ONE CENTRAL MOTIF: they try to keep things interesting by adding new harmonic lines and elements (melodies, even improvisations, etc) instead of focusing on the production and textures.

We know that other Libraries like to receive music with complementary A and B sections, but this Library is NOT one of them – stick with ONE CENTRAL MOTIF per submission, please!

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

Quoting the Library: "We'd like to hear sophisticated, modern, pattern-based piano cues that are intimate, soft, and underscore-friendly. Structure-wise, make sure to both have a consistent composition and give the editors options to use ie: a dynamic section, build-up section, and more intense section. The key is to have different sections in terms of intensity, but NOT different in terms of harmony or 'new ideas.' Pianos often have quite a few resonances – so Dynamic EQs, Multiband compressors, different reverbs, etc. are very handy techniques to keep them from sounding muddy."

Please send well-composed piano-based Instrumentals that would work well as underscore for various scenes and scenarios. Craft your Cues around a singular motif/pattern, and create a sense of dynamics and forward momentum by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. Your pieces can feature other instrumentation like strings, light percussion, acoustic guitar, etc., but piano should be the focus. Your production and any and all virtual instruments or samples you use should be super high-quality and modern.

TAXI Tip: Although this Company wants pattern-based instrumentals, please keep those patterns on the simple side. Remember, you're not trying to show off what an amazing piano player you are, so much as creating a vibe, feeling, and emotion, while leaving plenty of room for dialogue to be the focus.

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.

TAXI Tip: Don't be afraid to layer up your instrumentation to create a huge, blockbuster sound!

NOTE: This Library will need your Instrumentals' stems (the individual tracks for each instrument/sample), as well, but not yet! All you need to submit for now are the Full Instrumentals, but please have the stems on hand and ready to send at a moment’s notice if you get a call or email from the Library.

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

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.

Instrumental Examples

Quoting the Library: "We’re looking for cues that have a clear light-hearted and feel-good mood: Warm, positive, and somewhat easy-going. We want to hear pieces with organic/acoustic instrumentation that have a human touch."

Please send top-notch Instrumental Cues with an overall feel-good vibe and sound. 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. Acoustic-based instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best – think acoustic guitar, ukulele, handclaps, glockenspiel, whistling, etc. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you do use are high-quality, modern, and don't sound stiff or synthetic. The more your submissions sound like they're being performed by real musicians playing real instruments, the better.

FUNKY PARTY POP SONGS 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!

CONTEMPORARY POP SONGS in a FOREIGN LANGUAGE with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Major European Media Company for a variety of Non-Exclusive opportunities!

We purposely avoided putting references in this request as we felt they could be more misleading or limiting than helpful. Songs can be in languages as wide-ranging as Arabic, French, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Hindi, Japanese, etc. Just no English or Spanish, please! Naturally, the most common languages will be more appealing to the client. Obscure languages from lesser-known countries could be less appealing to the label.

Please submit well-produced Pop Songs with memorable melodies, engaging rhythms, and catchy choruses. Your submissions can lean more towards the mainstream, Top 40 side of the spectrum, the Indie/Alternative side, or anywhere in between. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production should be high-quality and your Songs should have plenty of mainstream appeal. Please be sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are top-notch and fresh, as well. Confident, well-performed vocals performed in a foreign language (no English or Spanish) could be the final touch to get this Company excited about your music!

Lyrics that don’t have references to specific names, dates, times, brands, places, and profanity could make your Songs more useable for sync placements. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Quoting the Company: “Only artists/writers affiliated with ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SACEM, IMRO, APRA AMCOS, SOCAN, including all Scandinavian and Latin American PROs, are eligible to submit their music for this opportunity.”

They won't be looking as much for polished, perfect production as much as they're looking for super fresh, marketable Acts with great, chart-worthy Songs! Your production and recording quality still needs to be clean, clear, well-balanced, and good enough to represent your Songs well.

Please send top-notch R&B Songs that showcase your infectious, genre-bending sound and style. Your submissions should have soulful melodies, great rhythms, super catchy choruses, and a healthy dose of mainstream appeal. Please be sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are fresh and modern. Expressive, well-performed vocals brimming with personality could be the final touch to get this Label excited about you and your music!

We recommend submitting at least TWO to THREE Songs per submission so they can see if you’ve got depth in your material. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tone, texture, and overall vibe.

Please submit as many Songs as you'd like, online or per CD. Include lyrics, a photo, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, November 4th, 2021. TAXI # S211104RB

EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT R&B SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Film/TV Music Publishing Company that typically gets really nice, HIGH-END placements! These guys are thought of as being "a cut above."

This Company is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

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

"Icy" by Pink Sweat$

"Tightrope" by Janelle Monáe

"Drip" by Kyle Dion feat. DUCKWRTH

Quoting the Company: "We're looking for Songs with uplifting, non-romantic lyrics. Anything about friendship, being there for each other, overcoming challenges, being confident, having gratitude, being joyful, etc."

Please send top-notch R&B Songs with an overall joyful, emotionally upbeat vibe and sound. Your submissions should have great melodies, super engaging rhythms, memorable choruses, and instrumentation that's generally similar to the references. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality, modern, and fresh. Well-performed vocals with lots of great energy could be the final touch to get this Company excited about you and your music!

NOTE: This Company doesn't want to hear Songs that sound like typical library music. They're interested in finding stuff that sounds like commercial, releasable Songs ready for the radio. If you're an artist or band with an online presence, even better!

Avoiding specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are recommended. 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 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. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’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. 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, November 6th, 2021. TAXI # S211106RB

Road Rally Listening Panels

Return to List of Categories

PERFORMING ARTISTS are needed for a LIVE SHOWCASE at TAXI’s Virtual Road Rally!

This showcase will be sponsored by our friends at MusicPro Insurance (and possibly others), and if you’d like to get an idea of what the showcase will be like, please watch one from last year!

The MusicPro Cafe Showcase at the 2020 TAXI Road Rally - Day 3

PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY IF YOU DON’T HAVE DECENT BANDWIDTH (At least 3 Mbps UPLOAD speed – go to Speedtest.net to check your speed).

Artists selected will also NOT be permitted to broadcast live using a smartphone and 4G. If you can’t provide a clean, non-laggy, no-jitter stream, please don’t submit for this Showcase!

6 artists will be selected to perform, in total. The showcase will be live on Friday night, November 5th after the Road Rally panels have ended for the day at 6:00 pm Pacific time. Each artist will perform 2 songs!

You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity. Please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is ORIGINAL (no covers) and NOT already signed with any Music Libraries or Publishers.

BY SUBMITTING YOUR MUSIC FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY, YOU GRANT TAXI A ONE-TIME, GRATIS LICENSE TO PLAY YOUR MUSIC AND PERFORMANCE PUBLICLY DURING THE LIVE ROAD RALLY WEBCAST ON YOUTUBE, AND FOR INCLUSION IN THE ARCHIVED ROAD RALLY VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE, SHOULD YOU BE SELECTED TO PERFORM.

Here’s how to be considered:
Please submit ONE SONG to this Listing, much like you would submit to a regular TAXI opportunity. You’d be smart to pick your very best song. In our opinion, uptempo songs will likely be better for this showcase. You can submit a guitar/vocal, keyboard/vocal, or fuller production. PLEASE avoid submitting songs that have profanity in the lyrics. Kids could be watching this showcase.

During the Showcase, you’ll need to be able to perform your Songs as a solo, duo, or small ensemble. Full bands are not advisable. You CAN perform to a track if you’d like!

Our A&R Team’s mandate will be:
Find the best songs and performances. The screeners will probably not give much feedback for these submissions other than saying things like, “Your song was really good, but the performance wasn’t quite strong enough.”

TAXI will send MusicPro a narrowed down playlist, and they will pick the final 6 performers. TAXI will notify the Final 6 and connect them with the people producing the Showcase to set up times for Tech Checks prior to the Showcase.

Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, October 25th, 2021. TAXI # S211025CS

TAXI ROAD RALLY - “Hey Rob, Can You Fix My Mix?” With Rob Chiarelli – Songs with lyrics and vocals (from TAXI MEMBERS only)

Got a problem with your mix? Would you like a Multi-Platinum, 4-time Grammy winner to have a listen and see if he can suggest a fix? Rob Chiarelli is an A-List mixer/engineer/producer, and he’s going to listen to some randomly selected songs and do his best to answer your specific questions. “Is my overall balance good?” “What can I do to help make my lead vocal sit better in the mix?” “Does my reverb sound right for this style?” “What can I do to get my bass and kick to sound more locked-in and punchier?” You get the idea, right?

  • Songs played during this session will be chosen randomly from a playlist generated from this TAXI Listing!
  • 100% of the submission fees from this Listing/Rally session will be donated to Sweetrelief.org, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and the Tunnels to Towers Foundation, to help musicians, families of first responders and soldiers who've lost their lives, and children needing serious medical care. Sorry, no refunds on submissions if your song is not played during this session.
  • Each person who has a song played during this session will also get a code for a FREE plugin download from Rob’s personally designed tools at FinalMix.biz

Please include ONE specific, succinct question about ONE aspect of your mix in the LYRIC section of each submission. If your Song is randomly selected and your question is too long or complicated, we will have to move on to the next one – sorry, no exceptions, folks! No lyrics are needed. Paste your question in the lyric section of your submission.

ANTHEMIC POP/ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a top-notch EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company that's had placements in countless Major Network TV Shows, Feature Films, Movie Trailers, and Advertisements.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company is BRAND NEW to requesting music from TAXI, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet! This is a great opportunity to create a new outlet for your music and begin a new relationship with an awesome company!

This Company is searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general ballpark of the following references we got directly from them:

"We Come Running" by Youngblood Hawke

"I Wanna Get Better" by Bleachers

"Shake It Out" by Florence + The Machine

"Cold Cold Man" by Saint Motel

"Shut Up and Dance" by WALK THE MOON

Please send modern Pop/Rock Songs that are teeming with positive, feel-good energy! Driving beats, great melodies, and (most importantly) huge, anthemic choruses are all musts for this pitch. A mixture of Pop and Rock elements and instrumentation will likely work best, here – think electric guitar, synths, drums, piano, etc. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use are slick and modern. Exuberant, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

This Company is specifically asking that you submit "4-level" Songs that grow in intensity as they progress to reach a huge ending. It's fine to start at Level 2 for this pitch like the references do, and maybe bring Level 1 in before the last chorus so it really pops. Here's how those 4 levels could break down: Level 1, maybe a sparse and intriguing intro with vocals and synths, moving to... Level 2, full beat comes in during the verses, the song is moving along but not at full throttle yet. Level 3, Choruses should be big and stand out. Level 4, the final chorus… just when you think it won’t get any bigger, it does.

Lyric Tip: This kind of Song is often used in Family-friendly promos and advertisements, so it's crucial that your lyrics are super positive and happy. Nothing that's negative or melancholy will work for this pitch.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT submit anything with copyrighted material or loops from Splice or similar royalty-free sites (some one-shots might be okay as long as they're indistinguishable from the original sample).

This Company has requested that your lyrics be "Network TV-friendly" – that means NO profanity. Universal lyrics that don't reference specific names, places, dates, relationships, brands, or situations are also preferred by this Company. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal, so the material you submit for this request CANNOT be signed with other publishers or catalogs. Sync fees will be split 50/50. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright 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.

DRIVING, ENERGETIC ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a top-notch EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company that's had placements in countless Major Network TV Shows, Feature Films, Movie Trailers, and Advertisements.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Company is BRAND NEW to requesting music from TAXI, so chances are you don’t have any material in their catalog yet! This is a great opportunity to create a new outlet for your music and begin a new relationship with an awesome company!

This Company is searching for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general ballpark of the following references we got directly from them:

"BOOM" by X Ambassadors

"Born For This" by The Score

"Shake" by SAINT PHNX

"Victorious" by The Score

"SCREAM" by SAINT PHNX

"Stronger" by The Score

Quoting the Company: "It’d be cool to go for a modern hybrid sound with a clean & crisp production -- check how some of the references incorporate elements like electro beats, synths, etc. along with Rock instrumentation. Should feel modern, slick & produced."

Please send well-produced, modern Rock Songs with an overall bada**, swaggering vibe and feel. This Company is looking for more of a defiant, motivational take on this style, so please avoid submitting anything that's dark, brooding, or overly dramatic – listen closely to the references to understand what we mean. Driving rhythms, memorable melodies, and anthemic choruses are all musts for this request. Please be sure that your production and any and all virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and modern. Fiery, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top. This Company is looking for Songs that could make the listeners feel like they could take on the world – give them that!

This Company is specifically asking that you submit "4-level" Songs that grow in intensity as they progress to reach a huge ending. Here's how those 4 levels could break down: Level 1, maybe a sparse and intriguing intro with vocals and synths, moving to...

Level 4, the final chorus… just when you think it won’t get any bigger, it does!

Lyric Tip: These types of Songs are often used in Sports programming, so lyrics that would work well in that setting might be an added bonus! We wouldn't advise having lyrics that specifically mention sports, but concepts like winning, coming out on top, facing a challenge, etc. might work well.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT submit anything with copyrighted material or loops from Splice or similar royalty-free sites (some one-shots might be okay as long as they've been modified and they're indistinguishable from the original sample).

ORIGINAL, Late-'60s-to-Early-'70s-Style BRITISH PROGRESSIVE ROCK SONGS with Male 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!

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:

"Roundabout" by Yes

"Lucky Man" by Emerson, Lake & Palmer

"The Court of the Crimson King" by King Crimson

This Record Label would prefer to hear original vintage pieces that actually date back to the late 1960s and early 1970s with reasonably good sound quality. 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 real-sounding performances by authentic musicians, not "robots."

Please submit well-crafted Songs that capture the sound and vibe of Progressive Rock in the late 1960s to early 1970s. Your submissions should have well-structured melodies, memorable choruses with strong hooks, and top-notch lyrics that are colorful, imaginative, poetic, and visually stimulating. Your instrumentation should be excellent, as well, with solid guitar parts and solos, engaging analog keyboards, and great drums.

Super compelling, well-performed, master-quality vocals (nothing pitchy, please!) that epitomize the style of the era are essential for nailing this pitch. Please be sure that your vocal performances are spot-on if you want to get this Label excited about your Songs!

Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are strongly recommended. 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 Thursday, November 4th, 2021. TAXI # S211104PR

ORIGINAL, '80s-to-'90s-Style THRASH METAL SONGS with Male Vocals are needed by a Music Library with a ton of credits in Feature Films, TV Shows, and TV Commercials.

This Library is looking for authentic-sounding, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that might fit well on a playlist with the following references we got directly from them:

"Raining Blood" by Slayer

"Suffer The Children" by Napalm Death

"Pleasure to Kill" by Kreator

This Library would prefer to hear original vintage pieces that actually date back to the 1980s and 1990s with reasonably good sound quality. They will also consider recent recordings; however, they must authentically sound like they were recorded around the same time as the references.

Please send well-crafted Songs that capture the face-melting sound of '80's and '90's Thrash Metal. Your submissions should have killer rhythms, solid hooks, and authentic-sounding Metal instrumentation. Vocals with tons of aggressive energy are a must for this pitch, as well. Since authenticity is the key to nailing this pitch, any and all virtual instruments or samples you use need to sound like the real thing.

Clean lyrics are preferred by this company! Please avoid use of profanity in your lyrics. Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity are recommended. 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.

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. The Publisher will get 50% of any sync fees and 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch. You’ll maintain full ownership of the original Copyright and Master Recording. Please send as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD.

INTROSPECTIVE POP/ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a very successful Music Library for placements on a popular relationship-based Reality TV show.

This Library is looking for Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references we got directly from them:

"Let It Go" by James Bay

"Wrecked" by Imagine Dragons

Quoting the Library: "Here are some moods and usages we'd like to hear: introspective (goodbyes/crying/difficult conversations), sad/heartbroken/pulling on your heartstrings (broken heart, you betrayed my trust), concern/worried about the relationship (Is this going to work out?, what will he/she think?, I'm torn)."

Please send well-crafted Pop/Rock Songs that will tug at the viewers' heartstrings! Your submissions should have emotional melodies, memorable choruses, and honest, well-written lyrics. We think more stripped-down arrangements (like the first reference) or filled-out productions (like the second) could both work for this pitch. Whichever approach you decide to take, your production should be polished, and any virtual instruments or samples you use should be high-quality and modern. Expressive, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top!

Avoiding specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are recommended. 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 unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

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 Master and Copyright 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 Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Sunday, November 7th, 2021. TAXI # S211107PR

MODERN, EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT ROCK SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Film/TV Music Publishing Company that typically gets really nice, HIGH-END placements! These guys are thought of as being "a cut above."

This Company is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"Thunder" by Imagine Dragons

"Young Folks" by Peter Bjorn and John

"Giants" by WALK THE MOON

"Orphans" by Coldplay

Quoting the Company: "We're looking for Songs with uplifting, non-romantic lyrics. Anything about friendship, being there for each other, overcoming challenges, being confident, having gratitude, being joyful, etc."

Please submit modern Rock Songs with great melodies, engaging rhythms, singalong choruses, and an overall joyful, emotionally upbeat vibe and style. Instrumentation that's generally similar to the references will suit your submissions best. Please be sure that your production is top-notch and any virtual instruments or samples you use are high-quality and fresh. Energetic, well-performed vocals could help you seal the deal!

NOTE: This Company doesn't want to hear Songs that sound like typical library music. They're interested in finding stuff that sounds like commercial, releasable Songs ready for the radio. If you're an artist or band with an online presence, even better!

Avoiding specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity are recommended. 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 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. The Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’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. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

Singer/Songwriter

Return to List of Categories

A Bunch of MODERN SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a new “TV/Film sync-oriented” Record Label started by a Multi-Platinum Producer and a team of very successful industry veterans.

This Label is looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general wheelhouse of the following references:

"Horizons (Freedom Is Here)" by Tim Myers

"Take Me Away" by Elizabeth Anne Mall

"New Day" by Andrew Simple

Please submit well-produced Singer/Songwriter Songs with great melodies, memorable choruses, and lots of great energy. Stripped-down performances or more filled-out production could both work for this pitch. Impactful, positive, well-crafted lyrics that are on the simpler side will probably work best for this request.

Instrumentation that’s in the general ballpark of the references (and other songs and acts like them), with contemporary sounds and productions styles is the ticket, here. Your vocal delivery, attitude, and overall performance should also be very contemporary and should sound right at home on a playlist with the above references.

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 to get you in the stylistic ballpark, of the overall texture and tone.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This company has specifically asked that you only send unreleased Songs that aren't already commercially available. If you've already released them on Spotify, Apple Music, etc., or if they’re already published or administered by CD Baby Pro, Tune Core, etc., please do not submit them.

REALLY IMPORTANT: This company is not just looking for a song or two from you. They’re looking to build professional, ongoing relationships with artists who are highly committed to working hard, and have the drive and ability to deliver a lot of super-strong material. Having the right type of image and “looking the part” could be icing on the cake, but first and foremost, it's about having great music and strong work ethic!

The specific deal points will be handled on a case-by-case basis between you and the Label. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this opportunity. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Include lyrics, a photo, and a bio. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Monday, October 25th, 2021. TAXI # S211025SS

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE HARD/ACID ROCK SONGS RECORDED between 1967 and 1979 with Male or Female Vocals are needed by the CEO of a distinguished Indie Record Label for one of their incredibly popular compilations!

This Label is looking for Songs that would appeal to fans of the following references:

"Hope" by Bacchus

"Box" by Zekes

"In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly

Please submit original, vintage Hard/Acid Rock Songs with great grooves, rippin' guitars, and memorable melodies. Well-performed, genre and era-appropriate vocals are a must for this pitch, as well. Your instrumentation should be generally similar to the references and have solid musicianship – nothing pitchy or rhythmically loose or sloppy will work for this request.

NOTE: Please submit old masters only. Authenticity is key! They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC VINTAGE RECORDINGS that were recorded between 1967 and 1979.

The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! They’re interested in finding music with reasonably good fidelity that sounds authentic to the time period.

The overall deal points for this will be negotiated directly with the Label on a song-by-song basis. You must own or control your Master and Composition to submit to this pitch. Please submit as many Songs as you like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI.

ORIGINAL, VINTAGE CHA-CHA-CHÁ SONGS with Male or Female Vocals that were RECORDED BEFORE 1980 are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing.

If you’ve got old recordings that sound like they could be on a playlist with the references below, you might have exactly what this Publisher needs:

"Oye Cómo Va" by Tito Puente

"Guantanamera" by Celia Cruz

"Sweet and Gentle" by Georgia Gibbs

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

Please send original, vintage Cha-Cha-Chá Songs with inviting melodies, danceable rhythms, and impeccable instrumentation that could get the ballroom moving. Your songs should feature era-appropriate arrangements as well as top-notch musicianship – in-time and in-tune performances are a must. Passionate, well-performed vocals could be the cherry on top to seal the deal with this Publisher!

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.

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 them 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.

Make sure your Songs were actually recorded BEFORE 1980, 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 (PST) on Sunday, November 14th, 2021. TAXI # S211114CH

AUTHENTIC-Sounding HAWAIIAN SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by an A-List Music Publisher for Film and TV Sync Licensing!

This awesome Publisher is on the hunt for vintage or recently-recorded Songs in All Tempos in the general stylistic range of the following references:

"Henehene Kou 'Aka" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

"Halawa" by Raiatea Helm

"Hawai'i Au" by The Sunday Manoa

Quoting the Publisher: "We really want to avoid too much MIDI…we want real instruments with warm, fully-developed sounds."

Please submit great vintage or recently-recorded Songs that could transport the listener to the sandy beaches of Waikiki. Your submissions should have captivating melodies, memorable choruses, and well-crafted lyrics performed in Hawaiian (a little English sprinkled in here and there is alright). We think stripped-down performances and more filled-out arrangements could work for this request, but both your instrumentation and production need to be high-quality and sound authentically Hawaiian. Any virtual instruments you use to replace organic instruments need to be top-notch and sound like the real thing, as well.

You can submit recently recorded Songs in the general production style of the references; or, if you’ve got any vintage recordings (recorded back in the day), they would love to hear those as well, as long as the recording quality is reasonably good.

You’d be wise to avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity in your lyrics. Do NOT copy the referenced acts in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, tone, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company averages several placements per week (at least!), and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal and pays an upfront fee to buy the copyright and master recording. You’ll keep the writer’s share of the publishing. 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.
