$1500 All In: Positive, Uplifting Tracks Needed for Upcoming TV Show

$1500 All In: Positive, Uplifting Tracks Needed for Upcoming TV Show

This is an URGENT Brief, we are looking to send tracks by 17:00 GMT Monday 8th October so get submitting! *** We have already made a Playlist for this from the Sync Portal, so to get ahead for future Briefs make sure to Submit your tracks to the Portal *** As with all High Tier Sync Opportunities we will be providing you with feedback on tracks in the File Comments. We are looking for tracks for an upcoming TV show one of our clients is working on. This is quite an open brief and the client is open to submissions from across Acoustic, Indie Rock, Blues, Soul and R&B. However tracks must be conclusive sounding, uplifting and positive - while not being too romantic lyrically. Ideally tracks should have a male vocal, but the client is also open to female if the track is especially special. Anything with lyrics that reference reconnecting, connecting, sticking through hard times, learning lessons, winning battles etc would be a bonus here. Please make sure to include instrumental versions of the tracks you submit. Track submission limit = 3 (not including instrumental versions) We also need this information below (as a bare minimum) about any tracks that you pitch, so make sure your METADATA is updated or you leave a FILE COMMENT explaining more - tracks without this information/which do not follow this above format and submission limit will not be considered, or be provided with any feedback. - Song Title - Artist - Writer Split - Master Owner - Publishing Owner Looking forward to hearing your submissions!

Fresh New Tracks Across All Genres Needed (October 2018)

Fresh New Tracks Across All Genres Needed (October 2018)

At Music Gateway we constantly put music forward to specific TV, Film, Ads and Games placement briefs. Some of our clients however don't send briefs out. They work in a slightly different way and we send them regular playlists of fresh new music. This is why we're constantly on the search for exciting new songs across all genres to send over to them. We work directly with a host of Music Supervisors across EUROPE, USA, Canada and Australia including shows broadcast and or produced by NBC Universal, CBS Television, Disney ABC, Netflix, Sony Pictures and Amazon TV. The licensing includes background cues and promo slots for advertising. As a Sync Licensing Agent we are widening our catalogue need to meet the increased demand for multiple genres. We work on a commission basis where we take 25% of each successful sync fee (you keep all backend royalty and rights payments). To see the full details check the Music Sync Licensing page in the Opportunities section at the top of this page or visit www.musicgateway.com/music-sync-licensing. The only key criteria is - it has to be fresh! If you have released anything in the last 6 months - we want to hear it! - How to Submit - You can upload your song(s) using the submission button on the right and please don't forget to add your contact details in case we get interest in any of your submissions from a client. - Message - When sending over your music, it's always good to add some more information about yourself and/or the release. So drop us a short message with your submission! - Easy Clear - Please make sure that the songs you send us are easy to license and you either own the rights to them or have the right to represent the songs on behalf of the rights holder. Once we have received the songs, we'll check them out and create a final playlist from a selection of the tracks we've received on here and send it over to our clients. We will be creating a new project each month to find the best fresh tracks.
