Canadian Musician Magazine, the widely-read and respected publication for Canada’s musicians and music industry professionals, is celebrating its 40th anniversary throughout 2019.
Founded in 1979, Canadian Musician continues to serve its readers with entertaining, informative, and insightful content designed to help propel their careers forward.
“We published our first issue of Canadian Musician 40 years ago with one goal: to be Canada’s premier publication and a go-to resource for professional and amateur musicians and the industry that supports them,” says Jim Norris, Founder and Publisher, Canadian Musician. “It’s been as thrilling as it has been fulfilling to work towards that goal in the decades since, and like the industry we’re proud to represent, now feels like the most exciting time in our history. Celebrating this milestone with so many passionate friends and partners from over the years is a great reminder of why we do what we do, and our team is freshly inspired to continue our mission in the years to come.”
The inaugural issue of Canadian Musician Magazine was published in the spring of 1979. Since then, the publication has featured countless covers, interviews, and columns with some of the most notable names in Canadian music, from The Guess Who, Rush, Alanis Morissette, and The Tragically Hip to Nickelback, Avril Lavigne, Shad, and Marianas Trench.
Each and every issue also includes: the latest updates from the Canadian and international music industries; career-building feature content; instructional columns for musicians, songwriters, and audio engineers; updates on the latest gear, tech, and trends; coverage of major music industry events across Canada and beyond; and more.
Today, Canadian Musician Magazine continues to expand its reach with initiatives like the Canadian Musician Radio podcast, its series of music business webinars in partnership with NWC Webinars, and CM Live sessions on Facebook with some of the industry’s best and brightest.
