Make the most of your profile!
A good quality photograph
As your profile picture is the first thing potential clients see when coming across your page, it needs to be eye-catching and informative. Perhaps a close up photo from a performance or a picture with your instrument. It’s an opportunity to show a true representation of you and your craft (landscape fits best).
A bold headline
Sum up your work in a snappy one-liner. You in a nutshell. Make sure to state everything you do!
This is a great opportunity for you to showcase your achievements and aspirations. Keep it concise, informative and in third person! Some important things to include when writing your bio are:
Skills: What are you bringing to your role as a musician?
Attributes: What factors make you good at what you do?
Accomplishments: What professional and personal goals have you reached? Have you received awards or glowing reviews?
Aspirations: What are you looking to achieve for in your career as musician?
Credentials: If applicable, where did you train? Where or whom have you previously worked for? Show off!
Reviews provide excellent weight to your description and are a great references for future bookers. We recommend providing a short quote along with the name of the publication or reviewer.
So that any one who comes across your profile gets an immediate feel for your music and craft, provide a video that showcases your talents in a live performance setting. One Youtube or Vimeo URL per line.
Contact information and social media links.
The MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL – your contact information. We recommend providing at least your professional email address and contact number.Plus remember this is a great place to display all your online content in one place so do link to your website and/or social media – it’s a useful way of further showcasing your talent and achievements.
