Will Chernoff here: thank you for taking interest in Rhythm Changes.
What I do
Rhythm Changes is best known as the go-to place online for the Vancouver jazz scene. Currently, I'm the sole author and I make 2 media products you can pitch to:
- the free weekly article: delivered by email, a new Canadian jazz album review plus this week's gigs from the list. The reviews also publish to the web
- the Rhythm Changes Podcast: the only weekly interview podcast about jazz and creative music in Canada (Wednesdays)
I cover these 3 territories, in this order of priority:
- Metro Vancouver
- British Columbia
How to reach out
Please send all pitches to my email, will at rhythmchanges dot ca, and aim for a lead time of four-to-eight-weeks.
For the podcast, I have an online guest guide which your client must either read or get briefed on by you: find it here. I also have an in-person guest guide if we decide to record that way.
What happens next
Rhythm Changes has less than 100 spots available for pitches in a full year. Therefore, I often decline.
You can expect a response from me within 48 hours (see my schedule for exceptions). I aspire to be the most responsive blogger on your master, so feel free to follow up with me.
FAQs for publicists
Do you cover singles?
It's rare; I usually cover albums. However, you can still pitch a single. Maybe that single will lead me to cover the album later.
Do you do music premieres (publishing pre-release)?
No: I only publish after the music has released.
Blogs come and go. Are you going to burn out / close Rhythm Changes / significantly change the format in the near future?
I'm much less likely to do so than most other blogs; I earn revenue directly from my audience, and I have low overhead costs as a sole proprietor.
I'm uncomfortable following-up sometimes
You are always welcome to follow-up with me when I don't respond to you!
