NY AD Agency Needs Pop/Rock Song

Below is a special opportunity that we wanted to give you a heads up about. Just got the word about this project today, and TAXI Music needs the song by 1:00 PM PDT on Tuesday May 24th, 2011. You can find this listing under the Pop (Film & TV) genre in the Submit Music section of your hosting site.

NY AD AGENCY Needs a CONTEMPORARY, MID-to-UPTEMPO, ORGANIC POP or POP/ROCK SONG for a non-broadcast film for a HUGE financial services company. Estimated license fee: $7,000-$10,000, and 100% of the money will go to the songwriter--NO publisher splits on this. Think John Mayer, Gavin Degraw, and Sara Bareilles to get in the style ballpark. AVOID Dance/Beat Oriented Pop. Your song should touch on Listening and Understanding for lyric themes, but don't write stuff that's too "on the nose." In other words, AVOID creating lyrics like, "I hear you babe, I understand where you're coming from." Gag! Keep them more general, but let the listener know that someone IS listening.

Leave OUT any romantic references... keep the lyrics more like a friend talking to another friend and offering some compassionate advice or understanding. Sincere and heartfelt is good, sappy is NOT! Keep it simple and positive, and let the energy build to create an "arc," but don't go crazy and over-produce. Ma le or female vocals are both okay. Full-length songs that are easy to edit a are plus. Give your track a title that makes them think you're a cool Indie artist--don't title it like you would for a music library pitch.

REPEATING: This is DIRECT-to-the-Agency, so you'll KEEP 100% of this deal with NO publisher splits! Broadcast Quality is needed (excellent home recordings are fine). You must own or control 100% of the Master and Composition rights. If you ARE chosen, the Ad Agency will contact you DIRECTLY. Please submit one to three songs online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a YES/NO BASIS. NO FULL CRITIQUES FROM TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than TUESDAY, May 24th at 1pm, (PDT). TAXI #Y110524PR
