Get organized

Before you reach out to anyone, make sure you have a bio sheet, sample tracks and everything a writer, DJ, or someone you want to book your band might need. Having an electronic press kit on can be extremely helpful to anyone thinking of writing about or playing your music.

As far as sending the music itself, ask if your contacts would rather receive a physical copy or digital files. A lot of people prefer to get album and song samples digitally, so always be prepared to have your music collected as mp3s in .zip files that you can easily upload for download on free file hosting sites such as, and Make sure all tracks are tagged and numbered properly so your contacts will know what they're listening to and won't have to struggle to find the details later.
