Jayhawks and Taxi

I submit my tunes to "Taxi" a Website for unsolicited songwriters and artitists who want to pitch their stuff. I notice a lot of listings looking for alt.country tunes and artists in the style of the Jayhawks, among others (Ryan Adams, Wilco, Lucinda Williams, et al.) It's good to see the Jayhawks are used as an example of aspiration. Anybody else belong to Taxi?

Taxi is great. Tony Danza should have quit then. His stuff has been nothing but tripe since.

I've never heard of that site, but I have searched MySpace music for the Jayhawks and found lots of artists that list them as an influence. It's been a good way for me to find newer music. Very cool.

Marylou Henner in Taxi vs. Marylou Henner in Johnny Dangerously.

I think she was way hotter in Johnny Dangerously.

Discuss.

random thoughts: King of Prussia has the line 'and Tony Danza's on the run' on their 2008 CD Save the Scene. Decent CD.

Marilu Henner: Johnny Dangerously

too bad she's such a head case in 'real life'.

Correction: "It shoots through schools". Much funnier.

My Dad uses the Taxi service quite a bit and has actually had a few tunes pulled for some low budget movies. He and I wrote and recorded a few songs together that are also posted on Taxi waiting on a nibble
