Songwriters for new Soul / R&B / Funk publishing company and Label
submission price: $0.00

Songwriters for new Soul / R&B / Funk publishing company and Label

Hello! I'm Vyero. CEO of Taxicab Records.
Taxicab Group is being launched on January 2018, and it includes 4 companies:
Taxicab Records, Taxicab Publishing, Taxicab Distribution and Taxicab Management.

Even though we have a great catalog already in our Publishing company, we are looking for songwriters who can deliver the following type of songs:
1.- Original songs that can be suitable for classic Soul, R&B and Funk productions.
2.- We are offering an exclusive deal, so the songs can't be signed in other publishing companies. But, we encourage the songwriters to have your songs already registered in your Performing Rights Organization (BMI, ASCAP, etc), so we can guarantee the royalties go where they should.
3.- Good melody. We have great singers in our roster, so: challenging melodies that require good vocal range are more than welcome.
4.- Good lyrics. If you have great stories to tell, or have a great way to describe what you feel, or if you have a cool way to tell people to dance... that is what we are looking for.
5.- Complete structure. We are not accepting half-songs. All verses, choruses, bridges have to be written already.
6.- Full arrangements ARE NOT NEEDED!.. If you have the song recorded with just vocals + 1 instrument, that's more than fine. We have great session musicians and arrangers who will work on the songs from scratch.
7.- English or Spanish language lyrics are accepted.

What we offer:
- Exclusive 80/20 publishing deal (meaning: 80% royalties for you)
- Exclusive catalog inclusion for 3 years to be used on the Taxicab Records projects only.
- Songs in our catalog can be included in more than one project (with different arrangements), so this could potentially multiply your royalties.
- We also offer our catalog for licensing deals, to include the songs on series, movies, commercials, international compilations, video-games, and so on... This means that we can help you make an extra income from the same songs.

Please submit your songs here for review. We will notify you shortly which songs are selected.

After the selection, we send you a commitment letter (to be signed and returned to us), where you declare that the chosen songs are part of our catalog.
We are aware of the legal implications of unauthorized use of your songs. We are doing this in the more transparent way possible, so you can be confident about it. If you have any questions regarding our artists, our company or anything else, please send me a message and I'll answer personally.

Hope to hear from you soon!

K-Pop and J-Pop Music Needed ASAP

Just signed on with a huge publisher in Japan and they need songs for their acts for the new year. I've placed a couple. I am putting this on the critique section as to open up a dialogue for tracks that really really fit. Please don't send me songs if they don't fit J-Pop or K-Pop. (please listen to current charts and see if your songs fit). I will not try to fit a square peg into round hole (i.e. getting a track with instructions on how I should stretch the song to make it fit. That would be a waste of your time.)

Now the good news: this could lead to some pretty big cuts with multi-national artists as long as you give me your best and catchiest songs. Looking for upbeat, and K-pop-ish. (once again please listen to K-Pop charts on youtube to get an idea) Don't give me Caribbean-jazz! Ha! good luck

submission price: $10.00

Label seeking emotional Singer-Songwriter, Folk, Americana, Alt. Country songs

Label/Publisher is seeking songs for release, publishing, sync placement opportunities, and promotion. We have a proven record of placing songs with major networks and brands such as FOX, ABC, Roxy, Forever 21, Specialized, etc.

We are specifically seeking music from artists that have a timeless sound. The overall vibe of the label is one of honest music with warm vintage emotion. We are looking for Singer-Songwriter, Folk, Americana, Alt. Country that evokes emotion. We lean toward a more melancholy sound so please no “fun” or overly “happy” songs. At the moment we are only seeking single songs. By focusing on singles we can target specific markets when promoting and seeking sync placements. This also allows us to craft the labels’ “sound” while acting as a discovery vehicle for new and emerging artists.

IMPORTANT: Artists must be willing to sign the master & publishing rights to the selected song over to the label and publisher. The songwriter/writers will retain 100% of the writing credit and will receive all royalties for their share. In addition, an advance will be paid to the writer/performer for the song in an amount to be determined. The advance then becomes a recoupable expense. After the advance is recouped, all income generated by the song will be split 50/50.

Our label is distributed by our digital aggregator, The Orchard, and releases will be available on every major retailer and streaming service including iTunes, Spotify, IHeartRadio, Amazon, YouTube, Google Music, rDio, Shazam, Flipagram, etc.

Seeking Pop Songs NOT about Love

Looking for pop songs that are not about love for artist placements. A lot of the artists I'm working with now are edgier acts that aren't looking for the pop ballad or big love song. Lyrics can seriously be about anything but your typical love song. The only love songs I will take are songs that may talk about love but have a quirky title or different way to say it. For example, Elton Johns "Tiny Dancer" would work (obviously), but if you titled the same song "Hold Me Closer" it would likely slip buy. Yes, titles matter! Looking forward to seeing what's out there.
