A forward for a direct to Ad Agency

Post by PaulVee » Tue Oct 01, 2013 4:34 pm

My song "This Is My Life" got forwarded to this opportunity:

"U130923FG

TOP NY AD AGENCY NEEDS Bright, Happy, Feel Good SONGS with a super positive vibe for a National TV Commercial. Male or Female vocals will both be considered for this spot. Your Song should be Mid-To-Up Tempo with a really strong spirit of optimism. Your song can be current OR retro-influenced (in a timeless, classic way). They're NOT looking for obviously dated sounding material from specific eras such as the '70s, '80s, or '90s. For this pitch, it's ALL ABOUT THE LYRICS and the POSITVE MESSAGE and OVERALL VIBE. Quoting the Source: "Ideally, the lyrics should allude to the SUNRISE. Metaphorically, the sunrise symbolizes a new, better, and brighter day. Give us something light, friendly, optimistic, organic, warm, leaning toward acoustic, with a great hook, Éand a nice bridge to add an interesting lift to the end of the chorus hook. Buttoned endings will probably work best for this." You could give them lyrics about feeling great, having a great day, the sun comes up and it's another great day, the sunshine brings a whole new day, etc. Make the listeners feel like they're really glad to be alive because this is going to be a great day. The length of the song needs to be a minimum of 60 seconds. Full songs should work best. Broadcast Quality is needed (Great sounding home recordings are fine). Please do NOT submit anything DARK, MOODY or DEPRESSING.The estimated license fee for this is $10,000 - $20,000. This is a Direct-to Agency placement, so if you land it, you'll keep 100% of the sync fee and any applicable royalties. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Composition rights to pitch for this opportunity. Do not submit any unauthorized samples of any other artist's work, or any other form of media. Please submit original songs only. All songs will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. All submissions are due no later than Monday, September 23rd, at 10am (PDT). TAXI # U130923FG"

Briand, Andy and Eric, Thanks guys! Speaking of vocals....as I was doing the basic tracks, I just kept adding all these bgv counter melodies at the end.
I got so overwhelmed I had to enlist my buddy in Nashville to mix it for me!!

thanks again,

Paul V.
