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 Nova Scotia


Nova Scotia has long been associated with Folk and Traditional music and that is something that carries on today. These musical genres reflect the cultural diversity of the area.

Even though the music scene of Nova Scotia has been predominately based in traditional music styles there is more to the Nova Scotia region than Folk. Popular music genres have rapidly gained ground, the Punk and New Wave emergence in the 70’s & 80’s resulted in an explosion of music from many genres, Pop, Rock, Indie and in the 90’s Hip Hop was being heard in the clubs and many of the artists from the Nova Scotia area found success finding local and national radio airplay.

This emergence of the popular music movement had a significant effect on the live music of Nova Scotia. New venues appeared on the scene giving musicians a much needed place to play and gave the public what they craved. In 1993 The Halifax Pop Explosion Festival held its inaugural event, this festival became an annual event with five days of musical shows covering many different genres held in venues all over the area generating good crowds and attracting artists from all over Canada and beyond.

Nova Scotia has produced some great musical talent many of them finding success on a national and international stage, artists such as; Sarah McLachlan, Anne Murray Portia White, The Rankin Family, Sloan, Matt Minglewood, Rita McNeil and Hank Snow.
