Artist Bio Examples

GigFinesse will feature your artist bio on our social media platforms when we promote upcoming shows, so it is important that you have a strong artist bio.

Strong artist bios range anywhere between 250 and 1000 characters and include several or all of the following pieces of information: 1) where you are originally from, 2) where you are currently based, 3) artistic influences, 4) a brief description of your genre or musical style, 5) your most recent tracks or albums, 6) names of band members and/or their instrumentation, 7) notable awards or previous performances. Bios should be written in the third person.

Sample artist bios:

1. David Ershon is a 34 year old indie-folk singer-songwriter currently based out of New York City. Originally a classically trained pianist, he came to New York to attend Baruch College, where he graduated with a degree in Finance. During college, he started songwriting during his free time and quickly began releasing music heavily influenced by Little River Band, his favorite band. His past albums have touched on a wide range of subjects—his 2010 album “Orchard Street” addressing the difficulties of moving to a new city, while his most recent album “Christinith” explores past relationships. His current repertoire is anchored by a powerful acoustic folk sound and easygoing pop melodies, but David’s upcoming melancholy single, “Harry Potter Books” is a modern interpretation of old English hymns.

2. Originally from Los Angeles, Sherane is a R&B singer currently studying at The Julliard School. While growing up in Los Angeles, she found a love for music and theater at an early age, performing in a variety of school musicals and choral competitions. Sherane has been working on her EP “Master Splinter” which is set to release in December, which will include influences from Kendrick Lamar, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, and some of her other favorite artists. Sherane’s music is best described as R&B-pop, with subtle influences of jazz and hip-hop. When she isn’t busy putting the finishing touches on her upcoming EP, Sherane can be found collecting Marvel comics and cheering on the Los Angeles Rams.

3. The Soggy Bottom Boys are a 5 piece funk-pop rock band that was formed in Brooklyn in 2015. The band is comprised of vocalist Winfield Scott, lead guitarist Ben Bella, rhythm guitarist Brian Boru, bassist Gonzalo Pizarro, and drummer Nord Sihanouk. The band’s meteoric rise in popularity began after opening for Village People during their reunion tour performance at Madison Square Garden and after performing an acapella rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at a Yankees playoff game in 2017. The band has since toured across the U.S., Europe, and Latin America. While the band loves performing covers of classic funk jams, they are most famous for their psychedelic lyrics and eccentric stage costumes. Keep an eye out for their upcoming singles “Alfred Jewel” and “Leif Erikson Day.”
