Looking for collab friends

Hello Taxi friends/family!

I'm fairly new to Taxi (joined April of this year) and also fairly new to writing instrumental cues (about a year).
I mainly write acoustic, rock, hip-hop, tension and EDM (but also dabble in orchestral/hybrid).
Started out this year with a goal of writing 100 instrumental cues (20 cues in 4 months before joining Taxi).
Really happy to be ending this year on track with my goal (worked on number 92 today).
Managed to land a great publishing deal with a Taxi friendly library and another one through a cold email submission.
LOTS of work but got about 40 tracks into these libraries this year.

I'm looking to jump into collabs with any like-minded musicians that are willing!
Hoping to finish off next year with even more cues completed than this year (and hopefully a placement or two!).
Productivity/new library relationships is my main goal.

I would love to hear from anyone interested.
Thanks!

Mark

Hi Mark, I'm also looking to colab. I'm a veteran musician/singer/songwriter/guitarist living in the L.A. area. I'm more into: rock/blues/jazz/country melodic instrumentals. Lot of 'Forwards' through Taxi, signed my instrumental, "Boneless Chicken" with Platinum. Lemme know if you'd like to hear my stuff. Thanks, Justin

Hey Mark!
I'm definately interested in collaborating. Would love to see what we could come up with together. I specialise in melodies, lyrics and vocals. I can write to an instrumental or come up with the structure myself. I have a few collab partners here but am always open to new collabs and opportunities to make something new and exciting.
If you are interested let me know and I'll email you.
Cheers
Shalee

Excellent, at the moment I'm not doing a ton of stuff with vocals but 100% keep you in mind when I get into that side of the business!
Thanks Shalee

Hi Mark,

Congrats on your great success so far! I do cues and songs and have only collaborated on songs in the past but an instrumental cue collaboration could certainly be interesting. I like your stuff. You certainly have some nice sounds (I particularly like the sampled sounds you are using in “Hide and Seek”). Maybe listen to some of my stuff on either my Taxi home page or Soundcloud and see if there is a particular style you might want to collaborate on. I’m still at the point where I am trying a few different genres because I haven’t been able to find a niche. I have found getting tracks into libraries to be really difficult so far, so you are probably way ahead of me there! :D

Cheers,
Glenn

Hey Glenn, Thanks for getting in touch.
Just saw your message now (currently at work) and I'll listen to your stuff as soon as I can.
Thanks for the kind words! I'm sure if you have some instrumental stuff laying around we could make use of it haha.
Talk to you soon.
