Podcast host & producer: Will Chernoff

I've made music in Vancouver, BC since my youth and started Rhythm Changes in 2020.

I currently work for a small record label. Previously, I was in a folk band and worked for six years at a non-profit arts organization.

The first batch of episodes launched on May 25, 2021 and focused on the Capilano University jazz program, plus my existing professional network.

The show had weekly episodes for about one year from fall 2021 to fall 2022, as I learned to produce better episodes. After focusing down the frequency, recording began to happen only in-person in Metro Vancouver.

The podcast has enjoyed the sponsorship of local music businesses for the majority of its life. Thank you, we wouldn't have it any other way!
