First Forward for Singr/Songwriter-U160424SS

Post by HornbeakMusic » Fri Jul 22, 2016 7:56 pm

I posted this 2 days ago and haven't seen it posted yet. Does it usually take this long? Here it is again.
This is a ver y late post. Friday May 13th was a lucky day. What a relief and exciting it was to open that e-mail and see Forward instead of Return like my other 4 submissions.

Guitar/Vocal: Devon Heath

Here is a link to my song and SoundCloud page.

Question for anyone. My Taxi membership will end today and until I can get some sync fees I cannot afford to renew (not a solicitation). Does the contact info forward to the Music Supervisor? I would assume it does.

Thanks

U160424SS
MOODY, ACOUSTIC-based (Piano and/or Guitar) SINGER/SONGWRITER SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for many NON-Exclusive, $3,000 placements by the Music Supervisor of a Feature Film. The Supervisor is looking for emotionally compelling, intimate, Down-to-Mid-Tempo Songs that could be found on playlists with artists like (but not limited to) Ray LaMontagne, Sia, Kris Allen, Fjord, Hozier, Lissie, Sam Smith, A Fine Frenzy, Keaton Henson, Elliot Smith, etc., etc., etc. Please take a listen to the references he gave us to get an idea of what could work for this Film: “Let It Be Me” by Ray LaMontagne: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LWpw3CMCEg “Breathe Me” by Sia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFGvmrJ5rjM “It’s Only You” by Kris Allen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbfeSImDntw “Blue” by Fjord: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kFGCwtsWgs “Like Real People Do” by Hozier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrleydRwWms “Together or Apart” by Lissie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN5GOV1sN-Q “Leave Your Lover” by Sam Smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=182TRJq9Zt8 “Almost Lover” by A Fine Frenzy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_S_TbD1XFM “Flesh and Bone” by Keaton Henson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAqp9MtRFNo “Between The Bars” by Elliot Smith: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPD-a1FjUtU Quoting the Music Supervisor: “The film is a dark and dramatic modern day love story, with a really well-known cast, similar to the Film ‘Unfaithful.’ We’re looking for moody, dark, emotional, lost love, soul-searching type songs. Songs should be able to support and play under very emotional scenes and montage sequences.” Give them well-crafted songs that hit you right in the heart, with compelling melodies, thought provoking lyrics, and a vocal performance that’s delivered in a intimate, honest, and meaningful way. Instrumentation can be solely acoustic (Piano and/or Guitar), or have a fuller band sound, but should be somewhat consistent with the references above. Introspective lyric themes about lost love will work really well for this pitch, but don’t limit yourself. Lyrics about a wider range of concepts like loss in general, a new start, regret, hurt and pain… just about any emotion you’d feel after a breakup could work! Universal lyrics will work best, so please avoid references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and places. Please do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). These will be Non-Exclusive, $3,000, Direct-to-Supervisor placements, and you’ll keep 100% ownership of your copyright and master recordings. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI A&R person handpicked by the Music Supervisor. No full critiques. Please submit 1-3 Songs online or per CD, no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Sunday, April 24th, 2016. TAXI #U160424SS

First off, congrats on the forward. So far, I've had one contact three months after the forward, one that came five months later and one that came about a year later. That last one didn't even ask for one of the forwarded tracks, but a completely new track. They contacted me because of TAXI and now I'm working on developing a relationship with them. All of your information gets sent to the listing party. If you cancel with TAXI, you could still hear from the supervisor months later. Sorry to see you go, but try to stick around the forum: it's free!
