Anyone Need a Ride? Take the Musical Cash Cab Hop In A Taxi www.taxi.com TAXI is an Independent A&R company, based in Calabasas, CA, that was founded in 1992 by music veteran Michael Laskow with the intent of helping songwriters, artists, bands, and composers get their music heard by record labels, music publishers, and supervisors of film/TV projects. Taxi has over 10,000 members in all 50 States and in over 90 countries. Members of Taxi are sent an updated list of requests for music and artists from companies within the music, film, and television industries every two weeks.

Members submit their original recorded music before the deadline date specified in what Taxi refers to as an “Industry Listing.” Every piece of music that is submitted towards the industry listings is reviewed by Taxi’s A&R team, they then make the decision of whether or not the music is on target for what was requested by the industry, and choose to either send it along to the listing company, or return it to the songwriter.

Who’s Who and What’s What... Intention – the Bolder Dimension of Songwriting Wayne Cohen, veteran multiplatinum selling ASCAP hit songwriter, producer and educator, owner of publishing/production company Stand Up Songs. Wayne teaches individual and group songwriting tutoring sessions at his NYC Stand Up Studio and via Skype. One of my song tutoring students recently sang me a song she was working on called ‘Listen You’, which I thought was a cool idea about missing that special someone. She had strong lyrics for her chorus, but the chorus chords she had were in a minor key just like the verse had been. The minor chords worked great in the verse, but the melody fell flat at the chorus. I call this kind of chorus melody problem flat lining, as in, the melody didn’t lift enough for a chorus. I suggested that she go to the relative major key for the chorus, and that the melody needed to be ‘happier’ to pay off the manic lyric idea she had set up. This eventually made for a killer chorus for that song. This started me thinking, if the question is, ‘how do you write a breakthrough song?’

M

This experience with my student reinforced my conviction that having an intention when writing is the answer. In other

words, if you can imagine the result you want before you get there, you have a much better chance of achieving that result. I think lack of intention is one of the things that is crippling the music industry. I see creators in many fields (not just songwriters) influenced by the culture of immediacy that we are living in. I believe some songwriters are influenced away from writing a breakthrough song, expressing a riveting clear universal emotion with catchy melodies, and instead are focused on making trendy tracks that sell immediately. I think the craft of songwriting is suffering as a result, and this shortsightedness is contributing to a lack of certain songs’ longevity on the charts. But keeping this idea of intention can be a tricky business when writing a song, because sometimes you don’t want to question that magical part of writing from pure inspiration. Great songs can seem to fall out of the sky and flow through the writer. However there are so many facets of songwriting that can be improved by conscious thought.
