Indie-Folk/Americana Songs Needed for Placement

Foot stompin’ indie-folk/Americana songs with male or female vocals are needed by a music licensing company for placement on numerous TV networks.

They’re looking for mid-to-up-tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of the references:

“Ho Hey” by The Lumineers

“Little Talks” by Of Monsters And Men

“I Will Wait” Mumford & Sons

Please submit roots-y songs that capture the essence of the indie-folk/Americana genre. Your submissions should have organic-based instrumentation, moving melodies, inspirational lyrics, and vocal performances that engage the audience on an emotional level. Your production style can range from very simple tracks with just acoustic guitar, handclaps, and foot stomps, etc. to small acoustic-based ensembles and even all the way up to more fully produced tracks. Having a well-performed and distinctive vocal sound/identity could also help you stand out.

Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, universal lyrics that avoid references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity could make your songs more appealing.

This company offers an exclusive deal, and they guarantee placements within 18 months. If they don’t get your songs used during that term, you get your rights back. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You’ll keep 100% of the writer’s share and the publisher will get 100% of the publisher’s share. You must own or control your master and copyright.

Since this is an exclusive deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is not already signed with any other libraries or catalogs. Please submit as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis—short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Wednesday, Dec. 18.
