Band Bios: You Rock the Stage; We Rock the Page


Lindsey O’Brien

As someone once said, “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” (It was either Elvis Costello, Steve Martin, or Martin Mull; the Internet can’t agree.)

The challenge of writing a band bio is translating one genre into another: music into writing, sound into words. And when you’re intimately involved with your craft, it’s hard to step back and have the perspective to accurately communicate your sound, style, and energy.

Like songwriting, writing a band bio is its own art and science. That’s why a content expert can be your “fifth Beatle,” with the perspective, experience, and writing expertise you need to develop the right words.

Why Do You Need
a Band Bio?

Don’t underestimate the power of a great bio. An aptly written portrait opens doors both professionally and creatively by:

  • Presenting a professional image
  • Promoting name and brand recognition
  • Generating fan interest and industry contacts
  • Defining your musical identity
  • Strengthening your creative focus


A bio is a tool that you’ll use over and over again to convey a consistent image and spread the word about who you are what you do:

  • Post it on your web site and social media.
  • Use it as the centerpiece of a powerful press kit.
  • Send it to publications and venues.
