How Do I Submit Music?
What is Your Submission Policy?
Where do I send my material?
Email submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You MUST STATE what GENRE and either VOCAL/INSTRUMENTAL in the SUBJECT line or you’re submission will be discarded automatically.
Will I get a response?
We will only contact you if we are interested in signing your material. Please do not call or email to follow up on your submission.
Can I submit lyrics without a recording?
No. Lyrics without a professional recording will not be reviewed.
If I submit music with profanity will you accept it?
Yes. However you have to send a clean/edited version as well so that it can be aired on TV.
What kind of music are you looking for?
Instrumental or Vocal Tracks from all genres. Film and Television productions use all kinds of music. So we accept all kinds of music.
Do you submit songs to artists?
Music may end up on a soundtrack in connection with a film, TV series, webisode or game, but we do not pitch directly to recording artists.
What happens next if you sign my song(s)?
Once signed, we will shop the song(s) around to our clients. Also, if we get a request for music, we will search our catalog database and if your song(s) meet the request, they will be submitted to the client for possible consideration. The song(s) will be uploaded onto the TMC site on our next available update cycle.
