Songs about love (R&B and Country songs) seems to be the theme for what the first two of our listing companies need in this batch. And the third opportunity is for Classic Rock songs for a Non-Exclusive Music Library. If you've got what these companies need, then keep reading...
HEARTBREAKING, CONTEMPORARY R&B BALLADS with Male, Female, or Duet Vocalsare needed by the CEO of a Music Library who is also a Music Supervisor. He wants emotionally touching Down-to-Mid-Tempo Ballads in the stylistic wheelhouse of artists like Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Tank, Fantasia, etc. Please listen to the following songs to get in the general ballpark of the vibe he needs:
"Do Better" by Chris Brown and Brandy
"Memories" by Ne-Yo
"Hope This Makes You Love Me" by Tank
"Side Effects of You" by Fantasia
Quoting the source: "Songs need to be about losing in love, relationships gone bad, missing a love, etc., etc., etc. I need material that's so catchy you'll be humming it all day long. I want to immediately connect to the lyrics and the voice delivering them."
Submit great, contemporary R&B Ballads that deliver a sincere vocal performance that's full of emotion. Songs should be melodically compelling, with an emotion-filled chorus that makes listeners feelwhat the song is about.
Lyrics should focus on heartbreak in a fresh, yet universal way, avoiding references to specific names, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Do not copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and tone. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

HEARTFELT, LOST LOVE-THEMED CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY BALLADS with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Grammy Award Winning Producer who's currently working with several youthful artists who need great songs! Give him well-crafted Down-to-Mid-Tempo Ballads in the stylistic wheelhouse of artists like Hunter Hayes, Danielle Bradbery, Dan + Shay, etc., etc. Quoting the Producer: "I want heartfelt songs with themes about lost love, or what could have been, but it must be youthful in nature." Submit honest, relatable songs with captivating melodies, engaging hooks, and a chorus that will hit you right in the heart. Songs about the pain of teenage or young love will be right on the mark for this pitch. Acoustic demos can work for this pitch, but your recording quality (even for stripped-down demos) needs to be clean, clear, and good enough to represent your song well.
