Music For Coffee Beings is breaking new ground in promoting Canadian and world artists.
Our goal is to distribute quality Canadian music free of charge to 1000 cafes and coffee shops throughout Canada
We are creating a series of compilation CDs that will feature some of North America’s best independant and signed artists and sending them out to 1,000 coffee shops and cafes across Canada and the US, along with 20,000 full colour brochures.
The cafes play the CDs for their customers and have the brochures with contact information for the artists involved in the project. In this way customers can contact the artists they have discovered and also purchase their CDs.
International artists who wish to increase their fan base in North America are also welcome on Music For Coffee Beings. Visit SONICBIDS if you are an interested artist. Everything you need to know is there. Or visit our submissions page.
