What's wrong with the old fashioned way?

Find musicians to collaborate with - it sounds easy, but it can be a long and difficult task. When you start a band or join a band, you will be forgiven for thinking that it’s almost impossible to find musicians with the right attitude, the right ability, the right gear, the right age, the right availability in the right genre - all in the right place!

Sourcing musicians for your studio recording can be just as difficult. To achieve a pro recording you have to make a band work - you need the right band mix. Countless sessions have not achieved their full potential simply because members of the band wanted different things - musicians wanted their own vision fulfilled.

Of course, when you’re looking for a band it’s hard enough to find a band, but bands looking for you are having the same problems!

The music industry has always suffered these problems - until now

Having an imperfect bandmix would seem to be ‘just the way it is’ with careers in music...but not any longer...
Whether you are starting a band or want to join a band, Musical Exchanges’ ground-breaking MX Recruit is for you. Discovering local bands, aiming for a professional recording career or trying to find a player available for a one-off gig it couldn't be easier!
And don’t forget - your own ad in Musical Exchanges' MX Recruit means that a band looking for you has a much better chance of finding you.
The service works like a dating site. It compares your profile against those placed by other advertisers and quickly provides a shortlist of the most compatible matches.

MX Pro-Tip!

Musical Exchanges - It’s where the music industry goes to network! When you place your MX Recruit ad you will also be a member of MX Network. You will be included in your nearest local and regional MX Network group so that you can keep on top of what’s happening in your area. You may find a player available here too! This presents another great opportunity to build music relationships - a massive step forward compared with placing a musicians classified ad!

Live music in Canada

Canada has many musical influences from the early French and English settlers and more recently by The USA. Being so close to North America potentially the talent of Canada could be overshadowed. However the during the 1960‘s the Canadian Government in an attempt to promote the music of Canada passed a law in which the Nations Radio stations must allocate 30% of their playlist to music of a Canadian origin. A measure which should be applauded as this helps to promote original material from Canadian musicians to the population. In 2000 this was increased to 35% the result was a huge increase in Canadian Pop and Rock musicians being heard on the Nations Radios.

Canada has been responsible for some major talent who have found world wide fame and success; Paul Anka, Robert Goulet, Oscar Peterson, Terry Jacks, Joni Mitchell, The Band, Rush, Robbie Robertson, Byran Adams, Celine Dion, Jeff Healey, KD Lang, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Neil Peart, Neil Young, Alanis morissette, Alannah Myles, Michael Buble, Nelly Furtado and Justin Bieber.

The Canadian music community is alive and well covering all music genres, symphony orchestra, pop groups, jazz bands, rock bands and of course indie bands. Canada is home to several recording studios encouraging many of the cities available musicians to make a good living as session musicians.

Forming bands is something that happens in every town, in every Country around the world, musicians joining together, networking and working towards putting a new project before the public, Canada is no different and there has been no better time to form a band than now and help increase the size of the music community in your area.
