In this Back to Basics installment of DAWCast: Music Entrepreneurship, I take a look and band and artist bios.
You can’t really overestimate the importance of your band bio. After all, for some people, it might be the only point of connection they have with you.
Every band and artist should aspire to create an engaging bio that draws readers in and makes them want to take action at the end of it. This episode sets forth several ideas on how to accomplish this.
In this episode, you will discover:
- Why you should tell a story with your bio.
- Why you should keep your bio short.
- How having multiple versions of your bio can help you.
- Why you need to clearly state who is in your band and what instrument they play in your bio.
- How to structure your bio.
- Why you need to explain your band’s sound in an accurate manner.
- How to include notable accomplishments in your bio.
- Why you should include your goals in your bio.
