Rhythm Changes publishes Monday to Friday at 6:00am Pacific Time (PT) from Vancouver, BC, Canada. Currently, all new content is made by me, Will Chernoff.

Publishing schedule

Lead time

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

Here's the current lead time to my next available publication date:

  • Free weekly article: 3 months (because of summer festival programming)
  • Podcast: 4 months (because of summer festival programming and a backlog of new album releases)

Time off in 2022

I take time off on a reasonable basis, including holidays, up to eight personal days off (sick days, family occasions, etc.), and four weeks of vacation: two in the summer, two at the end of December.

I last updated this list on July 3, 2022.
