My first Forward and I am excited!!!

KITSCHY, HAPPY COVERS OF WELL-KNOWN SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a hard-working Music Library that’s always landing placements in TV Shows, Film projects, and Movie Trailers!

This Library is on the hunt for Covers that could fit in the general stylistic ballpark of the following reference we got directly from them:

"Home" by Diana Ross

"Black Night" by Frank Sinatra Jr.

"Lonesome Town" by Ricky Nelson

Although these references are not Covers, the company feels that they capture the sound, style, and vibe they're looking for. Submit Covers of well-known Songs that have a generally similar, kitschy style to these references. You could take a sad song and make it happy, or take a happy song and make it sappier – feel free to get creative with this one!

Please submit well-produced Covers of well-known Songs that have a kitschy, idyllic vibe and sound to them. Although this Company is looking for "cheesy" music, your submissions should still have solid arrangements, great musicianship, and captivating, well-performed vocals. Instrumentation in the general vein of the references will suit your tracks best. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instrumentation you use are high-quality. You'd be wise to stick as close to the Songs' original melodies and lyrics as possible so they're instantly recognizable to listeners.

TAXI Tip: Have you ever seen a horror movie trailer that opens with super happy music in the background? That's the kind of music that this Library is looking for – they want Covers that they can use to give viewers a false sense of safety before the scary stuff starts happening – like this trailer (From 0:00 - 0:30).

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This Library offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 Deal. You must own or control the Master to submit to this pitch. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like, online or per CD. Time permitting, someone from the Publishing Company may screen some or all of the submissions. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, July 10th, 2021.

Thank you screener 432!!

Thank you Cosmicdolphin. This track has 2 vocals and 2 mics on one guitar. Not a lot to mix and produce.
