Last week we published advice for great rock vocals from Saigon Kick’s lead singer, and expert vocal coach, Matt Kramer. And as powerful as Kramer’s advice is, he’d be the first to tell you that his perspective on delivering an engaging and goose-bum... http://ow.ly/30yESS

A band press kit used to consist of a physical cassette or CD, a glossy photo, a bio, and maybe a sticker or a cool tchotchke. We've put together a list of reasons why having a press kit folder should still be a major part of how to promote your band and what a band press kit in 2015 should look like.
In this excerpt from our Definitive Press Kit Guide for Musicians, we lay out the purpose of your band press kit and maintaining your artist brand.

Björk, and her Biophilia app, stand out as the best example of what a modern press kit should be; interactive, densely integrated into social media, and simple to navigate. the combination of digital, and physical media; 8x10 glossy, printed bio, CD demo, can be a real catalyst for beginning acts.
