Originally founded in 1990, CHART is Canada's longest running consumer music magazine. Now online only, CHART's website receives 55,774 page views per day with 357,654 unique visitors each month.

10 Sonicbids artists will be selected per month for review on CHART.

The editorial focus remains on music and youth culture with a strong Canadian mandate. CHART chronicles the Canadian and international music scenes, as well as other forms of art and communication including film, books, zines, videos, TV, games, the Internet, pop culture and fashion.

To be reviewed, artists' music should be available commercially.


The magazine began as an eight-page photocopied newsletter covering the local music scene. It quickly expanded into a full-color glossy international magazine committed to fostering and promoting the Canadian music scene and its growth, while maintaining its editorial independence and integrity. In contrast to other North American magazines which focus mainly on established acts, CHART follows the buzz - breaking the up-and-coming hot new bands such as Avril Lavigne, Barenaked Ladies, Our Lady Peace, Sum 41, Matthew Good and many more. It is committed to providing an element of celebrity and excitement in Canada similar to the scene fostered in the U.K. by magazines such as Select and Q.

CHART's audience is mostly 15-35, the people who are the early adopters, fans of all things new and serious about music. They accept all genres although they mainly concentrate on rock, alternative and anything today's younger audience is listening to. Classical and jazz, for example, will rarely be covered.
