TAXI #D150713SS: Song form or Cue?
Posted: Mon Jul 13, 2015 3:38 pm
Song form needed or just a cue with edit points and a button ending? Due tonight, neither is specified.
EMOTIONALLY UPBEAT ACOUSTIC-BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER – STYLE INSTRUMENTALS are needed by an active Music Library with a ton of great placements in both Film and TV. They’re on the hunt for Original, Contemporary Instrumentals in ALL Tempos that could be heard on the same playlist as artists like Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Colbie Caillat, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to these references to get in the stylistic wheelhouse of what they need:
“Hello, You Beautiful Thing” by Jason Mraz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMkWxjVv-hU
“Radiate” by Jack Johnson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1nI6TwWm5k
“Never Gonna Let You Down” by Colbie Caillat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nr8lXUUpkzo
Although the references have vocals, they’re ONLY looking for Instrumentals for this pitch. Please give them well-crafted Instrumentals that have an emotionally upbeat, lighthearted, “feel-good” vibe. Your submission(s) should be acoustic guitar-based, and can have additional elements like light drums, bass, some keyboards, light percussion, etc. Above all, your Instrumentals should convey that feeling you have when you wake up and say “It’s gonna be a great day!” If you DO have one of those mornings, don’t turn on the TV and watch the news You’d be wise to use natural, real instruments for your Tracks. If you are using sample libraries, be sure that your Instrumentals don’t sound too stiff or synthetic. If you can fool them with your computer, go for it, but you’ll need to be really adept at using your samples! Your tracks should be at least 2 minutes in length and include easy edit points. Non-faded endings are encouraged.
Broadcast Quality is needed for this pitch (great sounding home recordings are fine). They offer an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any applicable sync fees 50/50.

Submissions must be received no later than Monday, July 13th, 2015 at 11:59 PM (PDT). TAXI #D150713SS
