Library Deal Signed via TAXI submission

Post by ddusty » Wed Oct 03, 2007 3:12 am

Finally have all the paperwork signed.Had a song forwarded to a Library for a TAXI Listing:SINGER-SONGWRITERS who stretch the boundaries of the genre a la Beth Orton, Jackson Browne, Imogen Heap, John Prine, India.Arie, Susan Tedeschi, etc. are needed by the President of an Artist Mgmt./Publ. Co. to represent for film/TV/video game/commercial placement. No instrumentals. Smart verses and memorable choruses are essential. Lyrically, he wants unique, non-traditional takes on traditional themes. So love songs are cool, for example, but lyrically you must grab the listener with a unique story and/or perspective.... must be received no later than April 5, 2007. TAXI # S070405SSWe actually heard from the publisher within 2 1/2 months. We then sent them 3 CD's worth of music and they have signed up 9 songsSo, with one forward, we now have a 9 song deal, and this all happened within 6 months of the listing. Very excited.Thanks TAXI!

Thanks Chits!They signed some older songs that I have never submitted through TAXI at all. Maybe it's time to start submitting some of the old stuff too!

Man, the deals are flying! I love reading stuff where people take the initiative to ask if they'd like to hear additional tracks, etc. Like Matto said, that's how it's done. Congratulations!

Strength in numbers.I know it is said in almost every thread, but the knowledge on this forum (and the kindly way it is shared) saves all of us YEARS of trial and error. It's really amazing what we can accomplish with the help of "like minded freaks".The support and honest feedback is invaluable, and it really is a testament to the frequent posters on the board to how much of an impact is being made.Thanks to everyone here for creating/maintaining this community.

Hey Rob, congrats! I have no doubt that you guys are gonna get some placements 'cause your stuff is GREAT! I'm a firm believer that good songs will eventually find a place & it sounds like this just might be "your turn." YOU DESERVE IT -billg
