Default Any Taxi members out there?

Hey all,

Living in central British Columbia, Canada, it's difficult for us to shop our product for film/TV/ect... My wife and I have been doing some research on the services that Taxi.com offer. Anyone have any experience recently with this service?

The other posts I've found are from a few years back. We've had multiple suggestions that our style of music would be well suited for TV/Film placement.

My wife's music:

My music:

Thanks all

I sign up every year and I get the emails daily and the main listing monthly but to be honest I am so busy I rarely look at them.
I have submitted to two or three knowing what I was submitting was not a 100% match.
It's hit or miss but the way I look at it for the $200 I'm spending on it, it isn't killing me so I keep it going every year.
I think if I had a collaboration partner I would be much more into it but right now everyone I try to get on board flake because life gets in the way.
In my opinion if you have a solid back catalog it would be a good place to shop it but if you are going to try and write and record what they are asking for, unless you have a lot of time on your hands you won't be able to get the listing, write, record, master and get it out the door in time.
But that's my two cents.

Cool, thanks for the heads up. We do have a back catalogue, although not super extensive. I may give them a call today. As some songs I write and some my wife writes. So we're trying to figure out the best approach. Not to mention the Canadian $ is in the tank. So $299 us to us is like a million bucks!

Oh yeah, I forgot it was $299 to signup. I've been with them for a few years.
To renew it is $199 a year.
