You can send all correspondence for Rhythm Changes to my email, will at rhythmchanges dot ca.
What can I send?
You’re welcome to send upcoming music releases, or these things:
- Feedback and suggestions for the website. Thanks for your help!
- Podcast guest inquiries — I book almost every episode of the Rhythm Changes Podcast editorially, but you’re welcome to try and find a fit. Please send with your podcast inquiry: the project you’re promoting, a link to the guest’s website, and link to a photo of the guest along with the photographer attribution.
- Sponsorship inquiries — if you’d like to sponsor our podcast and/or website targeted at Vancouver, BC, and Canada’s musicians and fans, I can provide some audience data and work with you to set that up.
When the site has limited editorial space, I focus on these territories, in this order:
- Metro Vancouver
- the south coast of BC including Vancouver Island
- the province of BC
- the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba or the three northern territories
- The rest of the world
When sending your upcoming music, please consider these guidelines:
Submit unreleased music. Our lead time is usually around 4 weeks, so I rarely start writing about a new submission that has already released.
- Checklist of things to include:
- release date
- title of the project
- link to stream or download the audio
- link to the cover image for the release and/or photos of the artists
- press release
- pre-save link from the distributor
- Link to your Bandcamp (only if you will release this project there)
- Please don’t send:
- any email attachments (I might not receive your email if you do)
- mailed CDs
If I’d like to interview the artist, I will ask permission to speak in English via phone, Zoom, Signal, or Telegram. Please respond with any accessibility needs.
Also, we always want to hear from you if:
- someone has asked directly for your payment in exchange for adding music to a Spotify playlist, which violates Spotify’s Terms section 9.13 (this is not the same as payment for consideration of your music on Submithub/etc., which is okay)
- someone you know has purchased artificial streams or video views in bulk, which is fraud
- you quit your subscription to a streaming service like Spotify or Apple Music—cool, tell us more about what you’re up to!
We don’t accept postal mail at this time–but we’re working on it!
