Starting my Sixth year of Royalties

Post by Russell Landwehr » Tue Jan 21, 2020 7:10 pm

I’ve had five full years of royalties because of my music being used in TV shows and now I’m beginning my sixth year… and I am deeply appreciative to TAXI and Michael Laskow for this! (stats will follow)

Some few-ish years back I joined these TAXI forums to “check out” TAXI and make sure this company was the real deal. In the forums I met an awesome family of like-minded folk who were the most encouraging and uplifting and HELPFUL people I could ever imagine.

Because of the TAXI Forums I became encouraged to join TAXI and began submitting music to the Listings. As a result of TAXI screeners forwarding my music, I developed relationships with several Production Music Libraries, signing many pieces of music over the years (I’m up over 900 cues out there working for me now).

What makes TAXI stand out above any other Independent A&R company is that the listings are REAL, the opportunities are REAL, and when they forward your music, they are sending your music to REAL people!

The best thing about TAXI is that they are trustworthy. TAXI’s number one guiding intent is to “do the right thing”. Michael Laskow stresses this to his crew as the underlying force behind what they do.

Thanks to TAXI and the contacts, experience, guidance, and growth I’ve gained from them, as of June of last year I have 77 different pieces of music used in 114 episodes of 22 shows on 16 networks in 24 countries… (that I know of).

I’m absolutely certain I never could have done this without TAXI and Michael Laskow.

Thank you for saying that publicly, Russell! Very much appreciated :) :) :)

TAXI currently has the best staff, best opportunities, and the best aggregate of A&R "ears" I think we've ever had in our 28 year history. It takes constant work to get all things to happen in concert (pun intended), so it's really nice to see that people notice and appreciate it! Congratulations on 900 cues! That's a big accomplishment!

Hope to see you at the Rally this year!!

Warmly,
Michael

Massive congrats, Russell! 900 cues is an awesome accomplishment.

I also appreciate the time that you have taken to chime in on certain topics in these forums. They have been more helpful than you know!

Here's to 900 more! :D

I remember you were the first one to give me some advice on these forums a few years back. I still appreciate that.
You nail your genre and deserve your success. Enjoy it!
