As a musician, your bio is your story! It should be written so that everyone understands why they should care about you. What sets you apart? Why are you unique? If you have a new album, what is the album's story? And, as you'll find out below, having just one bio just isn’t good enough.
"While we can never do enough for our defenders and first responders, we can always do a little more." That's the inspiration which guides this month's Giving Tree recipient. Learn more about the Gary Sinese Foundation, below.

HOW TO WRITE AN EFFECTIVE BAND BIO
by Ari Herstand for Ari's Take
Make sure you have three bios: a long one, a short one (1 or 2 paragraphs, definitely under 500 words) and an elevator pitch. Make sure every bio includes pronunciation of the name. Your bio should be written in the third person.
Your long and short bios can be on your website. The elevator pitch is not mean to be written anywhere, but just for you to think about.
Your long bio can be structured like this:
Start the bio off with a quote from a band member or press outlet or a lyric from one of your songs. Something that sets the tone and is indicative of what your project is about.
Everyone Appreciates Event Ratings!
We work hard to give you all the tools you need to find and book festivals, fairs, and events of all sizes! The one thing we can't do is rate the events! Only you can do that. Rating events helps other folks immensely.
Please help us make Festival and Promoter Ratings a stronger part of the FN toolbox. You'll find a link to recently ended events on your My Account page. It only requires a free FestivalNet account to rate events that you've attended or performed at!
Bookmark this page for frequent visiting! Thank you so much for taking the time to rate some shows!
The FestivalNet Giving Tree
This month we put an apple on our Giving Tree for The Gary Sinise Foundation. The non-profit honors our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.
Our Jill of all Trades, Shawn Kilby, chose the Gary Sinise Foundation to receive a portion of our gross profits this month.
See all our apples up on our Giving Tree page!
