We like to include stories about musicians, Hamilton area bands, Hamilton venues, amateur 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 the editor. info [at] hamiltonmusician [dot] com.

What to write about?

We invite 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 talent, new opportunities to earn income, and new ways of using technology.

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


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

Photographers are invited to send photographs for consideration. We cover musicians from the greater Hamilton area including Burlington, Oakville, Hamilton, and Brantford.

Out-of-town shots of our local artists on tour are a great idea.

Local shots of local performances are great too.

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

Photos of local performances are requested. 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.
