You can send all correspondence for Rhythm Changes to my email, will at rhythmchanges dot ca.

Rhythm Changes publishes multiple days per week at 6:00am Pacific Time (PT) from Vancouver, BC, Canada. The publisher and de facto editor-in-chief is me, Will Chernoff.

Lead time

If you are an artist or a publicist, you may wish to pitch for editorial consideration in the free weekly article. The standard lead time is around 2 months.

I'm no longer accepting pitches for guest appearances on the Rhythm Changes Podcast. Thanks for your understanding.

When you would like to make sure your gig appears in the free weekly article's gigs section, I recommend reaching out to supply information by the deadline of Monday, 12:00pm Pacific Time.

Publishing schedule

What about the gig list?

The gig list publishes every month, full of Metro Vancouver jazz live music events. It also gets regular edits and corrections to make sure it stays as useful as possible.

Many readers of Rhythm Changes enjoy the gig list primarily through the free weekly article – which delivers each week's upcoming gigs from the list.

The gig list is about making it easier to follow and enjoy live shows in our scene. That said, for the most up-to-date listings, we always recommend checking the webpage over the free weekly article's gigs section.

  • Alternative music platform news – you have done something noteworthy on an alternative platform for music.
  • Newsworthy information about people, businesses, or current events related to music in Metro Vancouver – I respect your privacy. For the most-sensitive information, postal mail is the most-extremely private way to go. You can find my mailing address at the bottom of all email products sent by Rhythm Changes. But for most purposes, a phone call or a request for my Signal/Telegram/WhatsApp number will do.
  • Pay-for-playlist tips – someone has asked directly for your payment in exchange for adding music to a Spotify playlist, which violates Spotify’s User Guideline #8 (this is not the same as payment for consideration of your music on Submithub/etc., which is okay).
  • Streaming fraud tips – someone you know has purchased artificial streams or video views in bulk, which is fraud (this is obviously not the same as buying ads to gain streams and video views, which is okay).
