Year old forward turns into deal...

Post by rld » Fri Feb 29, 2008 7:12 am

I thought I'd share this news as I see lots of comments/questions along the lines..."How long does it take to be contacted after a forward?".Well, it takes as long as it takes... These forwards are almost a year old and I've just been contacted about signing a deal.It's a non-exclusive license with payment upfront and they specifically state I am free to continue to pitch the songs for other projects.Not bad, huh?... Honestly, I had completely forgotten about it and this was a nice reminder that all those forwards that we never hear anything from can still be active.Here's one of the songs that I submitted for their "wide variety of pop songs" listing.http://www.taximusic.com/song.php?song_ ... m=trueKeep the faith!

Hi RLD!Very nicely crafted this song. Reminds me Lovin' Spoonful and The Hollies. And I think that "patience" is the key word in this crazy dreamselling business!Good Luck !!!

Congratulations! My first Taxi deal took almost one year to the day from the time I was forwarded to the time I got an email asking if my tunes where still available (silly question, little did they know...).

I was actually thinking about Maroon 5 and "Maxwell's Silver Hammer"when I wrote it.

Hey RLD-- Wow! Don't see a lot of people posting deals that offer money up front with non-exclusive restrictions. Thanks for sharing the story. Hope you find another home for this song (and then another)--
