2 Taxi Music Forwards - Inspiring, Cinematic Orchestral Instrumentals 

Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film/Publishing pro that will hear it next."


Several INSPIRING, CINEMATIC ORCHESTRAL INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Music Library with International distribution, that has landed a lot of Major Network placements.

This Company is looking for Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the examples below:

"Kiss of Sunlight" by Cody Martin

"Feel The Heartbeat" by Melodality

"Arrival of the Birds & Transformation" by the Cinematic Orchestra

"Bittersweet" by Michael Maas

Quoting The Client: "Looking for inspiring cinematic instrumentals with orchestral instrumentation that features acoustic piano or nylon string acoustic guitar. They should be inspiring, hopeful, and beautiful sounding, with a touch of romance (nothing sad or dramatic)."

Please submit Orchestral Instrumentals with an inspiring, Cinematic sound that could work well for a variety of sync placements! Your submissions should have hopeful-sounding melodies and dynamic arrangements with lots of forward motion and interest throughout. Orchestral instrumentation that features acoustic piano or nylon string guitar, and is in the general wheelhouse of the references will work best for this pitch. Please make sure that any virtual instruments or samples you use are high quality and realistic.

Your submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

"Hears" to 2021 

Here is a modest collection of tracks either signed by music libraries or released by yours truly in the year 2021.

As you may know, live music is my "day gig", but when I'm at home I'm working on original music, most always during the day, so.... now I'm confused....  haha. Anyway, as usual, my musical tastes are all over the map. 

Compilations and Steve's Top Spotify Tracks So Far 

Years ago I signed a bunch of songs with an online music library.

One way of presenting the music they represent is by making compilation albums with songs of multiple artists. That's why you may see my name appearing on all these different genre-specific collections on places like Spotify, Apple Music, and the like. The video below show what's this looks like on Spotify, for instance.

So any tracks of mine you find on the internet that don't appear on an album or single that I put out, that's how they got there! 

Here's an example of my top-played tracks apparently on Spotify.
