About Us

Crucial Rhythm is a music blog based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. While everyone on the Crucial Rhythm team is dedicated to sharing reviews, galleries, and interviews about music, we will occasionally put focus on other fascinating events in -not only our hometown but anywhere else around this planet- through words and pictures.
 

No matter the reason, genre, or artist you listen to, music brings people together. Music is a powerful item for the soul, for healing, and for other purposes. Crucial Rhythm doesn't look to leave any genre unturned, and by sharing the talents of musicians in every single genre imaginable, we make sure that no one is left out and bring everyone a step closer by doing so.
