BC Musician Magazine is a very different music magazine.
Our contributors are working musicians, music lovers and people who work behind the scenes to make the magic happen. Our writers are bold adventurers who travel the province (and beyond) to explore interesting, inspiring, and curious locations.
Our writers aren’t typical critics or reviewers either. Whether they’re writing about a venue or a CD; a campground or a hostel; a coffee joint or a breakfast spot; they are writing about their first person adventures – from behind the wheel, not behind the desk. They are people with opinions and interests and real experiences; they are writers and artists, collaborators, presenters, organizers and explorers.
Our readers are interested in independent music, music festivals, road trips, adventures and music life. They like to know where the best venues can be found, where the best cup of coffee is brewed and where the best sightlines are. They want to hear about exciting new music being produced in this province, who is touring here, and who is making music with whom. Our readers are looking for an authentic BC music experience, not a glossy slick version of the BC scene
Our readers also want to hear about the real-life experiences of being a touring musician — broken down vehicles, wildlife encounters, experiments with veggie oil- powered vehicles, crazy festival adventures, new friends, empty shows and lonely drives.
Regular contributors include: Carolyn Mark, Geoff Berner, Kevin Kane, Joey Only, Linda McRae, Lyndell Montgomery, Don Alder, Patrick Jacobson, and many more. New contributors join the roster each issue.
