A great music bio is an important part of your public image as an artist. It will complete your social media profiles and show potential followers (and labels) that you are serious about being a musician. It is also a place where you can control exactly what people read about you. Additionally, it helps set a certain tone for your whole brand. This article will list a few ideas and points to keep in mind as you write your band bio.

Make it Unique

A great bio should reflect the your, or your band’s, unique spirit. Make sure that it defines your style, genre, and approach to music. That means a classical musicians bio will be very different from a country singers bio. They both love music and love sharing it with the world, but being that vague won’t help either stand out amongst other musicians. Be creative and specific.

Here are some ideas on where to begin: Talk about your inspirations--that could provide an interesting lens into your relationship with music. Identify when you decided you wanted to be a musician. Share your favorite artists. Tell the story of how the band met.

It will take some attention, but a genuine bio that reflects your band’s personality will stay with the reader for a long time. It humanizes you as a musician and helps your fans connect with you as a person.

Include Your Acheivements

Have you played big venues or festivals? Include them in your bio. Have you had any major hits? Make sure to list them in your bio. People who are familiar with your music will be expecting you to mention these moments and those who aren’t as familiar will be impressed with those achievements. Don’t forget to update your bio every few months to include your most recent highlights.

Structure it Simply

A bio should be easy to read. Keep your sentences short. Break it up into short paragraphs. Depending on your website’s format, a paragraph should have only two to four short sentences in it because smaller chunks of text are easier to digest than long paragraphs.

This simple structure will help make your website and social media profiles look professional. It will also be easier for fans to connect with you and your personality if your bio is easy to ready. And the better connection, the more likely they are to buy an album and a ticket to your next concert.

Include Some Background Info

Your bio should also include some basic background information. Write about where the band started, your first gig, the first recording session. The general rule when deciding what background information to share is “what will add value.” What things about the history of your group will help people connect to your music?

Keep It Short 

The best music bios are quick. They tell the whole story of a band in one or two minutes of reading. While that might seem impossible to do, I promise, you can do it. If you find your bio has grown from a few paragraphs into a novel, there is a few things you can do.

First, cut anything non-essential. If you can’t decide what to get rid of, have a friend (who is not in the band) edit it. You want to give people a good impression of who you are and what style of music you play, that’s all.

Next, summarize what you’ve written. Boil down paragraphs into sentences. If you have stories, get rid of extra details. Keep rewriting it until you are confident it is the most condensed it can get.

Wrapping Up

By following these tips, you should have a great musician bio for all your social media profiles and even your website. Writing a bio might seem daunting at first, but as you get going, ideas will start flowing. Just be true to yourself, your band, and your music. Your fans are dying to get to know you.

With an already buzzing YouTube audience of over 400K+ subscribers, Kid Travis wanted his Instagram profile to start gaining some of that same traction.

While you can get some spill over audience from YouTube, Kid Travis knew that Instagram ad campaigns could boost his presence on IG even further!

He discovered that trying to run Instagram ads yourself vs. having us add our years of experience and expertise to them made a huge difference!

His main goal was to achieve new followers who are seriously interested in his journey as an artist.

Kid Travis already had amazing talent but needed to combine his music genius with some marketing expertise to get the best of both worlds.

We were able to bring out the heart of his music through paid ads by editing & optimizing his existing videos and properly researching and structuring his ad campaigns.

The end results: We were able to consistently and predictably gain followers averaging between $0.25-$0.35 per follower (including a bulk of the promotion being done in high cost English speaking countries such as United States, United Kingdom, Australia, & Canada) resulting in around 4,000 new, engaged followers/month on Instagram.
