How to Write a Band Bio

Having an objective and effective band biography can be a challenge for many bands. Often, the bands write these bio themselves (they are usually better at their instruments than at basic grammar) and are full of overly flowery explanations of the origin and mission of their sound and myriad influences. Sometimes, these monoliths are multiple pages long, including detailed biographical information about each band member.

Your bio doesn't need to be so detailed. Save that for books about your legacy and magazine feature articles. Keep your bio short and punchy. Like a brand statement or company overview. While I'm not claiming to have the answer to the perfect and entrancing band bio formula, I can however impart some tid bits of advice that will make your bio much more powerful and relevant.
