Making Your Pitch: Using Your EPK to Discover New Musical Opportunities
A couple weeks ago on the Muze blog, we took a deep dive into the components of a complete, thorough musician’s Electronic Press Kit (EPK). This virtual promotional package is an all-in-one look and listen which highlights who you are as an artist. Having an EPK is an essential component to telling your story to music industry tastemakers, including media outlets, talent buyers, and others who offer creative or professional services to help you further your career.
Now, for the million-dollar question: what do you do once it’s complete?
You pitch it!
However – like anything else you do in the digital space – you’ll want to pitch responsibly, and understand the steps that you can take to ensure your music lands in the right hands and has an opportunity to shine. In this week’s article, we’ll cover:
- How to find opportunities to connect with music industry tastemakers.
- How to identify the opportunities that are right for you.
- How to build relationships with tastemakers in the music industry.
- How to ensure that you are supporting the tastemakers who are supporting you.
