Your electronic press kit (EPK) is your professional music resume that promoters, venue talent buyers, journalists, and music supervisors use to understand who you are as an artist, what you bring to the table, and ultimately why they should care about you.
In the music industry, physical press kits have almost completely been replaced by the electronic press kit. The EPK, as it is known, is a traditional promo package in a digital form that lives on a band or band manager’s website.
We’ll help you shape and develop the right image to present to the world…one that sells and gets you noticed.
What’s Included in an Electronic Press Kit (EPK)?
An electronic press kit (EPK) comes in digital format such as a website, An electronic press kit should always contain the musician’s biography and details about releases. It can also include press photos, videos, upcoming tour dates, backline requirements, and other marketing information. All the content on EPKs is downloadable media meant to provide the reader or recipient with all information the necessary to include in a program, review, or article.
First impressions are EVERYTHING!
Biography and Discography
lso called a “backgrounder,” the bio grabs a reader’s attention and communicates the musician’s style or genre. Unlike a traditional resume designed to attract an employer, the bio is a narrative peek into a band’s artistry and gives readers a taste of the group’s influences and sound. A separate discography section features a list of available recordings.
Photos of You & Your Band
Pictures also help to tell a musician’s story in addition to the music. EPK photos may include headshots, band and promotional shots, CD cover art, and liner graphics.
Samples of Your Music
EPKs naturally include samples of music. Sometimes they showcase a variety of reels with snippets or complete tracks to appeal to different audiences including fans, clients, promoters, and presenters.
Your Performance Calendar
Building an audience is critical to every artist, and a list of gigs and performances is a critical component of every press kit. The calendar should be revised and updated often.
Your Press Coverage
An EPK also shows off press coverage including reviews and interviews along with endorsements from radio and television outlets.
Your One Sheet
An EPK’s one-sheet summarizes and distills its essential information into a single page; it’s often used to promote the release of an album like a press release.
Your Contact Information
A band dropped out of the Grammy’s and Clive Davis is calling to ask you to perform tomorrow. Contact information that’s front and center is an EPK essential.
