Artist Biography – Your biography is the story of who you are as an artist. In the digital music era the general public is bombarded with new music to listen to every day. A biography can be what puts someone over the edge in order to give you a chance, whether it be a talent buyer for a venue, a music director at radio, a record label, or most importantly a music consumer.
