I was a member of Taxi for 2 years. I got a couple of forwards and finally just decided that a Taxi was not the right vehicle for me.

I like to drive myself [Linked Image]

Peace

Mikel

I was a member of TAXI for 3 years. It cost me about $300 the first time, $99 to renew, then they gave me an extra year when I complained about some issues I had with them, which was pretty nice of them to do.

I got annoyed with their feedback; it seemed like they were just trying to make up excuses to reject my demo. Example: the lyrics were "wordy." Well, yeah, I used words, hello. The Barenaked Ladies had a couple of huge hit songs that set a new standard for "wordy," so it's not a real issue if the words and melody fit the beat. They also said the drum track I put on another song wasn't great, and I'm thinking, why are you using production issues as an excuse to reject a songwriter's demo? It's not a final, record-release recording, it's a freakin' demo of the song for someone to re-record! Production flaws shouldn't matter!

But the fact is, a lot of TAXI's industry clients are looking for final tracks from young artists with star-quality talent, so they listen to submissions from that mind-set. TAXI's purpose is to serve producers, publishers, and record label by filtering submissions, so their main job is to REJECT most songwriter submissions. This is not a good arrangement for those songwriters who are just trying to get a song picked up for publication and recording by someone else. Good songs with potential are no longer a valued commodity, because there are too many songwriters now, and so many people have access to good recording. It's more about hot tracks with great production, even for so-called demos. The competition is killer. TAXI forwards only the best-sounding tracks, and weeds out a lot of good songs with weak production. It's good for their industry clients, but it sucks for songwriters just looking to place songs. For many of us, TAXI creates roadblocks, rather than helping us reach industry contacts.


I will always disappoint people who expect me to be ordinary.
