The Modern Free Press is an independent, alternative news and entertainment organization.

The Modern Free Press exists to provide the world with unbiased commentary on anything and everything. Unlike other publications, we do not have ties or affiliations with any political party or religious group – nor will we ever. That’s just not what we are about.

We have used the Modern Free Press moniker since 2017. Prior to that, the publication existed under several different names. However, with the expanding coverage and goals we set ourselves, it soon became apparent that the older names just wouldn’t fit our vision. We felt the need to continue under a broader umbrella. Thus, Modern Free Press was born.

Originally, we were a music based publication. Established in 2012. Although we will always have a heavy helping of music coverage in our pages, we have expanded into the worlds of sports, arts and film, culture, lifestyle and food. And so on. Music will always be the foremost attribute of our content. Whether it’s covering live music or reviewing albums, interviewing artists or following bands on tour, we are strongly rooted in sound. For all times. There are no limits to which we will go to bring alternative entertainment to our faithful readership. We enjoy what we write about and photograph, and strive to bring the best content we can to our loyal reader-base.

If you have ideas about what we could cover in the future, we would love to hear about it. In fact, feedback of any form is welcomed. We are ever-evolving and looking for new avenues and alleyways to travel down and explore. In short, we don’t believe in pigeonholing ourselves in any way. Onwards and upwards.

Likewise, we are always listening for potential news stories and events to cover. Hot tips as they used to be called. That sort of thing. We currently cover events in several Canadian cities as well as internationally, with contributors who are willing to travel (within their own limits) – drop us an email and let’s chat.

Montreal based. World wide coverage.


Our website and database was destroyed in a cyber attack in February 2020. More than 85% of our content was lost and may never be recovered again. If you are looking for an article we wrote, or followed a link from Google that no longer works. Well, this may well be the reasonĀ  for that. Since then, we have been working day and night to return the website to its original format. As best we can. It also seemed an opportune time to refresh the look and layout of the site. As a result, there may well still be a fee kinks in the machine. So to speak.


General questions, advertising inquiries, promotions, review and interview requests. As well as submitting any news related stories can be emailed to us.

We are always looking to add contributors and photographers. All about the globe. Do YOU have what it takes to join our team?

Please note, we do not review streams. Submitted review material may be assigned to contributors at our discretion. We do not guarantee that all submitted material will receive coverage. The opinions of our contributors do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Modern Free Press. We cover all styles of music, books and film.
