Today in the music industry, competition is fierce. Getting the attention of labels and agents can be virtually impossible if you don’t approach it in the right way. In order to try and help bands and artists succeed, this guide is our insider knowledge on how to put together a professional EPK.
EPK stands for Electronic Press Kit. It is effectively a résumé or CV for your band or act. EPKs are submitted by email to labels, agents, promoters, venues - anyone who needs to understand your act and your music in a nutshell. An EPK usually takes the form of a PDF (or similar) sent out attached to an email. Your EPK should show pictures of the band, contain links to audio tracks and list your achievements. It should explain to the reader who you are, what your ideas are and where you want to go.
Labels are looking for individuality, talent and most importantly a band or act that can be promoted to the wider world. If one final thing should be considered above all others…
Be honest with yourself about your music. Are you ready to approach a label, or do you need more time to perfect your craft?
