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.
