Here's How TAXI Works:
- Tell us what kind of music you need and when you need it in your hands. Quick turnaround emergencies are not a problem!
- We tell thousands of songwriters, artists, and composers what is needed, but we don’t disclose who you are, what your company is, or what your specific project is. We only tell them what’s needed, what type of company or person needs it, and when it’s needed. You will never be inundated with unsolicited submissions or contacted by the general public.
- All submissions are expertly curated by TAXI’s team of genre-specific “screeners.” Check out their credits here: TAXI's A&R Team.
- The best and most appropriate material is forward to you by the date you need it. You’re given contact information on everything we send you. When you find something you’d like to pursue, contact the artist or composer directly. If you need assistance, we’re happy to help.
- TAXI does NOT participate in any deals.
Since 1992, TAXI has worked with virtually every Major Record Label, many top Indie Labels, leading Major and Independent Publishers, Music Supervisors, Production Music Libraries, TV Production Companies, Independent Film Producers and Directors, and just about any other entity you can think of that needs great music!
Tell us what you need, and we’ll help you find it!
