We are helping the music supervisor of a television show with an ongoing search.
In the show there is a local bar that the main characters frequent. It’s an upscale place that plays everything from Jazz to Indie Rock to Blues to Pop depending on the night/scene. So we’re looking for songs to pitch to them.
We are open to instrumentals but a majority of the chosen tracks will be vocals.
Everything should be modern sounding and if there are lyrics, nothing too obtrusive as there will usually be dialogue on top of the music (i.e. it will be a background use)
They have budgeted $2k-$5k all-in for the spots.
If you are selected, you'll be offered a non-exclusive publishing agreement & you will be pitched to this show.
Please send your BEST!
