Just getting started, 5 forwards already!

Post by Paulkrieg » Wed Mar 06, 2019 5:48 pm

Hi everyone! I just started submitting songs
to taxi about a month ago and I’ve already had 5 forwards! They were in several different genres including Arabic, Electronic, Christian, Funky deep house, and Sports rock. I got about 7 returns also but learned a lot from the critiques. Hoping I can get some songs licsensed and my first placement in 2019!!!

your tracks are amazing, forwards well deserved :)

out of curiosity, did you write all of these for the Taxi listings or were you already writing for sync?
see you at the top!

Thanks everyone! I wrote each one specific for the taxi listing. I’ve been writing and making demos, mostly country, every night for two years. Sync is new to me the last 2 months. I’ve pitched a ton of Country stuff to another organization and got some attention from publishers but no deals. I really like all the variety of taxi opportunities and the feedback from the screeners. I found taxi tv on you tube and was instantly hooked. My strategy is working in my home studio every single night from 10:00pm-12:30am (often til 3am!) after my kids go to bed. I write down what I hear and feel in the listings then try to go for a similar vibe. I just had another forward today for Electro Swing! That makes 6!
