Vintage Patriotic Songs Needed for Film and TV Placements
VINTAGE RECORDINGS of AMERICAN PATRIOTIC SONGS with Male or Female Vocals written and recorded prior to 1995 are needed by an A-List Publisher for Film and TV sync licensing opportunities. They need Original Songs as well as Covers of Public Domain Songs. Here are some examples of what this awesome publisher needs, but don’t limit your submissions to songs that are similar to these:
"God Bless the U.S.A." by Lee Greenwood
"In America" by The Charlie Daniels Band
"Some Gave All" by Billy Ray Cyrus
"Born in the U.S.A." by Bruce Springsteen
“America the Beautiful” by Ray Charles
“American Made” by The Oak Ridge Boys
NOTE: Any and all songs that are American Patriotic in nature, in any Genre, and in any Tempo are fair game for this pitch, as long as they were recorded prior to 1995. Original songs and covers of Public Domain songs will all work!
Please do not copy or rip off these artists or their songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as reference to the stylistic ballpark your material should be in! You can submit old masters or demos for this pitch. The recording quality is not expected to be on par with today’s broadcast quality! Many TAXI members have been signed by this publisher with nothing more than good demo recordings! They’re much more interested finding music that sounds authentic to the time period!
This Publisher is the hot, go-to company for a long list of extremely popular TV shows and big Feature Films when they need music that is authentically from a particular time period. For Original songs, the Publisher pays you upfront for the Master Rights and the Publisher’s share of the copyright and you keep the Writer’s Share of the publishing and earn income from performance royalties paid by your Performing Rights Organization. For Public Domain songs, they’d buy the Master Recording.
This company often averages several placements per week, and many of those are TAXI members who’ve been signed with this company because they submitted to a listing like this! Dozens of TAXI members have signed buy out, cash-up-front deals with this company. Several have even received up front checks for $10,000 - $15,000 (or more!) Deal sizes and buyout amounts vary depending on the quantity and quality of the songs signed by the Publisher.
They DO NOT want material that was recently recorded and made to sound old. They can only use AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE RECORINDGS, as long as the sound quality is reasonably good. This is a golden opportunity to make money with music you might have thought had no hope in today’s market!
Your name needs to be on the copyright and you need to own or control the copyright and master recordings to submit original songs for this pitch. You need to own or control the Master Recording if you’re submitting a cover song. DO NOT SUBMIT FOR FRIENDS! Please submit one to three songs online or per CD. Please include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Wednesday, September 21st, 2016. TAXI #Y160921PS
