Dear Songwriters, Composers, and Artists,

Do you think your ears are good enough to figure out which of the songs TAXI forwarded to the Music Supervisor of a Netflix TV series got picked to be in the show?

We know how our viewers love to be in the A&R Hot Seat, so this episode should be especially fun for you. Why is that?

Because you'll get to hear the great music we forwarded to the Supe, and you'll get some education about why one great song got picked over the other great songs. Intrigued? You should be!

This episode will give you an insider's look into some of the variables that can determine what gets picked, and what doesn't. You really don't want to miss this episode, and PLEASE don't be late. Some of the information I'm going to give out at the top of the episode could help you pick the winner ;-)

Here's the request we sent out!


TAXI #S210117UR

ORIGINAL SOLO ACOUSTIC GUITAR-BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER SONG needed by MUSIC SUPERVISOR VERY QUICKLY for NETFLIX SHOW! The Sync Fee is $2,000!

We just got this before closing time at TAXI, but thankfully the brief we got from the Supervisor tells you everything you need to know, so we’re just pasting it in below.

Quoting the Music Supervisor: “Here’s what’s going on, Netflix show I’m working on has a scene that takes place in the UK at an outdoor tourist market and they want something that sounds like a Male or Female Solo Guitar Busker is playing somewhere in the market, outside of the shot.

Male or female vocal
Solo acoustic guitar
Folky, slow to mid-tempo, nothing too upbeat.
Thick British accent, 'something that would signal British charm to the tourists.'
Must be able to license master and pub from the creator.

Additional note from the show’s editors:

‘[Producer] used the phrase “English Folk”, for what it’s worth. Not sure if that’s pushing more towards Sea Shanty/ pub song, or “Once” film territory…’

So I guess if they has something a little more traditional sounding, that’s fine too. Might help sell the British imagery. We have 2K all-in for this.

Pretty self-explanatory. Please make sure you are, or at least “sound” legitimately British for this request. Remember, you’re a busker, so some live feel is recommended!

This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch, so you’ll keep 100% of the $2,000 sync fee, plus you’ll keep 100% of the Publishing and Master ownership. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit. Please DO NOT submit material that is already published by any 3rd party such as CDBaby Pro, Tunecore, etc. Please submit as many songs as you'd like, online (only). NO DEADLINE EXTENSIONS for this request. Sorry folks, but we're on an extremely tight deadline, so please don't ask! All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 12 NOON on Sunday, January 17th, 2021. TAXI # S210117UR
