After a year of Taxi......

Post by petecheckleysound » Fri Mar 26, 2021 6:17 am

Hey all!

I thought I'd stop by and say hi and let everyone know why I have made the decision to return!

I joined Taxi in 2019 and learnt a lot through my first year. The screener feedback is always useful and I picked up some great hints and tips from other members! More importantly, I signed three publishing deals and have now had over fifty placements, all of which are due to deals I've signed through Taxi. For a bit of newbie who had got back into music production after a 15 year absence, I was stoked!

So, often, after a year, Taxi informed me that people don't renew due to the relationships they have made. Well, I spent almost a year as a non Taxi member, carrying forward the wonderful relationships I have had 200 cues published now! Recently, I decided to take the plunge back for two years and here's why......

I'm still creating full albums regularly for my current publishers and that will always continue! What Taxi provides you with is up to date trends in Music, publishers who need music, quick turnaround times and more and more opportunities every day. You'll forge some career long relationships but Taxi takes all of the guess work out of pitching your music and even inspiration about what to write! I find that I work better with reference tracks and stylistic details.

So in short...Taxi works, so while the first year was great, I've come back for a whole lot more!

Keep on writing everyone!

Pete

Well said Pete and congrats on your success so far! You're spot on when you talk about the opportunities that TAXI provides on a daily basis. The "up to date trends" are particularly useful to me.
Thanks for your update and I wish you continued success!
best, John

Wow Peter that's a stellar performance - You clearly know what you are doing, it took me a good while longer to get to that point.

I've just realised we are in one of the same Libraries and you are not too far from me here in Lichfield.

Wow 200 cues published is a great stat! Congrats on that on congrats on your return to Taxi :)

I have just started my second month (been a member before when I was in my 20s but I did not take proper advantage of my membership - silly 20 year old me! :) ) and I can definitely agree with what you said re current trends ect! Having the opportunity to listen to the references and the forwards blog already makes the membership fee worthily in my opinion.

Cheers to 200 (and more) publishing deals in the future :)
