Songs Needed For TV Series

Indie Singer-Songwriter tunes with Female vocals are needed by a Music Supervisor working on a very popular Broadcast Network TV Series. Mid-Tempo Songs with soulful, Indie-sounding vocals with a unique texture or character should work best for this pitch. Give her songs that would be heard on the same playlist as artists like Meiko, Erin McCarley, and Ellie King. Please check out the following songs to get you into the right general stylistic vibe for this pitch:

"Boys With Girlfriends" by Meiko:

"Playing For Keeps" by Ellie King:

"Lovesick Mistake" by Erin McCarley:

Lyric themes should focus mainly on relationships. Keep your lyrics universal, and avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, or profanity. Storylines that deal with love, sex (nothing too overt, please), boyfriends/girlfriends, husbands/wives, deceit, trust, passion, secrets, etc., could all be on target for this show. Songs that build to an emotional crescendo are encouraged. Also note that the referenced artists/songs are NOT stripped-down, and have a little fuller compliment of instruments.

The estimated license fee for this use is $1,000 - $2,000. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch, so if you nail it you'll keep all of your original rights, plus you'll get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control 100% of the copyright and master to pitch for this opportunity. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). Do not copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. All songs will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Please submit 1-3 songs no later than Wednesday, December 18th, 2013 by 4pm (PDT).
