My Taxi Faith is renewed!

Post by nicotina » Thu Nov 04, 2021 4:28 pm

Hey Taxi,

I haven't written in a while, and I confess that I was disgruntled. Although I have had some great success lately from contacts I made at Taxi Road Rally 2 years ago, I hadn't had much luck with library deals from Taxi forwards. I was especially disappointed when I got 7 forwards to one particular library early this year (Jan thru May), and no response from the library. How could I not get a deal when I was sometimes the only one forwarded for these listings?

Well.... I got the email from them today, and they want all 7 tunes. One of them I already signed to another library, but the other 6 were up for grabs, so I signed the contract!

Taxi, my faith was tested, but you guys came through in the end, and I should never have doubted you. I repeat my mantra: I will learn patience! Ten months is not much time when you are playing the long game...

Thanks again,

Vince

Congrats Vince! And well said about "playing the long game". That is key in this biz! Keep the faith and I hope those 6 turn into placements for you soon.

Congratulations, Vince! I'm so glad the library finally came through for you!

I guess we just need to remember that we write the things, the screeners send on the ones that match the listing, but it's up to the library or music supervisor to pay attention and come through! Thank you for that reminder!

Hanging in there, too,
Merry :)
