We like to include stories about musicians, local bands, ensembles, music schools and musical instruction.

Send us announcements about your events and music releases.

If you are interested in querying the editor about a story idea, please email glen [at] hamiltonmusician [dot] com.

What to write about?

We invite exclusive interviews with local artists and arts supporters/administrators/event-makers who exemplify quality, passion, and performance talent in our local music scene.

We look for articles with unique, unexpected angles and for subjects that will remain fresh.

We seek writing that educates our readers about new performance ideas, new opportunities to earn income, and new ways of using technology.

Keep it local – Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, and Brantford.


If you are including photographs, please make sure you have permission to use the photos, and give credit to the photographer.

You are invited to send photographs for consideration. Please keep in mind that we cover musicians from the greater Hamilton area including Burlington, Oakville, Hamilton, and Brantford. Out-of-town shots of our local artists are a great idea. Local shots of local performances are great too.

Amateur and professional, serious and hobby musicians are all welcome.

Photo essays of performances are welcome. Please include the date, venue, name of artist/band, and the occasion. Photos that are selected for publication will have your name credited in the caption, and a link to your website.
