..Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film person that will hear it next."
BLUES/ROCK INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a well-respected Music Library with a very solid track record of TV and Film placements. This company ran a lot of listings with TAXI about 10 years ago, and placed a bunch of music from our members. They’ve recently started a New Company, so this is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor, and they pay an Upfront Fee to Composers! They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that would fit well on a playlist with the following references: “Howlin’ for You” by The Black Keys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSCsoQ87MQ8 “Badman Redux” by Brent Lindsay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FC1u-Wia3P0 “Heartbroken, In Disrepair” by Dan Auerbach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0N2xsFiOOo Although the references have vocals, please submit Instrumentals only for this pitch.
Please submit well-crafted Blues/Rock Cues that have an edgy sound with standard Rock band instrumentation, and great musicianship that’s played with conviction, attitude, and authenticity. Adding some “rust” and “grease” couldn’t hurt! Your submissions should be well structured, with catchy, gritty guitar riffs, engaging melodies, and a super in-the-pocket rhythm section. Add and subtract layers of instrumentation as your Cues progress to add dynamics and keep it moving forward. Your submissions should be about 2 minutes long (give or take), with Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings. Please Do NOT copy the referenced bands or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).
