What Is Inside the Music?

We bring world-class music artists to perform live, in concert, in venues across Ontario

Inside The Music was founded in 2012 with the express purpose of presenting great music artists.  We have presented many terrific music artists over the years representing many genres; including roots, blues, country, folk, jazz, bluegrass, pop, indie, soul, rhythm & blues, funk, alt-country, and rock ‘n’ roll.  Artists we have worked with include Bahamas, Randy Bachman, Natalie MacMaster, The Strumbellas, Ron Sexsmith, Colin James, Whitehorse, Corb Lund, Big Sugar, Alan Doyle, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Cowboy Junkies, Jesse Cook, Classic Albums Live, Matthew Good, Bruce Cockburn, Lowest Of The Low, The Skydiggers, and many more.

Bars focus on selling beer, arenas focus on selling tickets, Inside The Music focuses on the music.

There is nothing else you can do to replicate the feeling you get when you go to a live music show.  A great set by a talented artist can be motivational, transformational, uplifting, even spiritual.  There is a connection that happens between the artist and the audience member that is very special.  Live music is a universal language that crosses all barriers and often creates memories that last a lifetime.  Inside The Music presents great live music.
