Your Better Bio: Describing Your Music And Describing Yourself

From Angela Myles Beeching at NewMusic USA, Your Better Bio: Describing Your Music and Your Self. It's a thoughtful piece about using your bio as a musician's artist statement, to help connect you and your music to new audiences. From the dangers of cliches and overly technical language ("I employ extended harmonic language and polyrhythms"), to the importance of sharing yourself personally, it's a concrete useful guide, complete with examples, for how to write a powerful bio to build your audience and expand the reach of your music.
