4 for 4 BLUESY ALT-ROCK (Thanks Screener #419)

Post by DannyWeber » Wed Aug 28, 2019 3:09 pm

Thank you Screener #419.. I’m glad I hit the spot with you! 4 times! That makes me very Happy!!

Dan Weber

Here are all the tracks I submitted and forwarded. Plus, Screener comments..

Cool stomp rock track. Tons of great energy for transitions.


Cool bluesy alternative rock track with a hint of swamp.


Very cool track. Gritty and aggressive with edge but not too heavy. You definitely captured the Black Keys vibe.


Forwarded.


BLUESY ALT-ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Music Library for a Hit TV Series on MTV.

They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that could fit stylistically with the following references we got directly from them:

Lonely Boy by Black Keys

Ex's and Oh's by Elle King

Go It Alone by Beck

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

Please submit driving, well-composed Alt-Rock Instrumental Cues that are gritty and a little blues-y, but that still have ear-catching melodies. Your submissions should use instrumentation such as (but not limited to) big kick drums, Hand Claps and Acoustic Guitar strums, mixed with big, riffy Electric Guitars. Think overdrive, over distortion!

While they’re NOT looking for songs with vocals, (non-lyrical) vocal textures/layers are welcome (oohs, aahs, yeahs, etc.)

Things to Avoid For this request:

- No Hard Rock / Metal.
- Nothing too Country, Twangy or Roadhouse Blues.
- No big leads or overly lead guitar-driven melodies.
- No EDM Claps. Some synths work, but mostly organic live-sounding work best.

TAXI Tip: Please be sure any virtual instruments and samples you use sound authentic, current, and not dated!

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

Dan, these all sound really good. Congrats and hope these net you a deal.

This was one of those cool listings that I meant to write/submit for and I just got hung up on other stuff. Glad to see this listing didn't slip by you! 8-)

Thank you Ted! I'm sorry you missed out on this one. I'm sure a listing for this genre will come around again.
