A rising trend in Toronto's music scene is that of the pay-to-play performance. Too many musicians are being shortchanged by promoters and having to pay just to get on stage and perform, but this time musicians are running the show.
For our hard work and talent, we musicians should always be compensated, no matter how small the reward, and we should never have to pay to bare our souls and share our gifts. That's why Oh So Beautiful has created a platform designed to put the power of performance back into to the hands of the musicians. No promoters, just performers promoting each other and working together to create greater opportunities for themselves, because no one is just going to hand us success.
