A good biography helps the audience connect personally to the artist. Bios are an important marketing strategy, so the writing style and format matters tremendously. Always be sure to use proper grammar and proof read several times before calling it "finished".

Start by making a list on scrap paper. Things to consider including:
- Recent concert engagements you've had.
- Awards and degrees earned.
- Other accomplishments.
- Recording projects.
- Upcoming projects.
- Hobbies.
- Unusual facts about yourself.
- A quote from a good review.

It helps to make both a short and long version of your biography.
