About

Our Purpose

Since it’s launch in 2017, our purpose at Audiobarn is to serve musicians, collaborate with music-related businesses and services, and be a valuable tool along the journey of being a musician.

Much like when composing a song, we are passionate in the process of creating something new, listening to feedback, and improving our creation along the way. We seek to continuously improve what we are offering in the hopes that it can aid in bringing people together under the shared love for music.

Our Goal

Our goal at Audiobarn is to help map out the local music scene in Montreal and provide this information freely so that you can save time researching and do more of what you love doing - music.

Our Services

Local Music Directory

Having begun by listing open mic nights, jam sessions and busking locations in Montreal from 2017, the website now includes jam spaces/rehearsal studios. There are currently two levels of directory listings: free and verified. We research the basic information that you may need for each event and service, and offer promotional services for verified listings to provide them with more visibility on the site. In this way, we seek to strike a balance between providing free access to information for local musicians as well as a way to keep the website financially sustainable.

Resource Lists

Resource lists have been a newer feature to the website which was introduced during 2020 as a way to help musicians find resources such as Free DAWs and Free Softwares for Jamming Online. We aim to continue adding new lists from time to time to help further our purpose by helping musicians find useful resources.
