A New Image For Your Next Stage

Let's Hear It

Why Branding?

Branding Is Storytelling.

Your music tells a story and your public image must be equally strong and engaging. You want to look as good as your music sounds. You’re not telling the same story as anyone else so why should you blend in? 

Look Professional. Attract Attention.

Visual consistency implies professionalism. If you forego a professional visual image and cut corners, you will look cheap. When you brand your persona, you control how the public perceives you. Be in control. 

First Impressions Are Key.

Humans are visual creatures and people will likely see your logo or branding before they hear your music. This first impression will tell each potential fan exactly where you are at in your career. Tell them you’re legit. 

From Artist To Audience.

A consistent brand is easier to recognize. At New Next we expertly transfer your spirit and audible essence into a visual symbol and cohesive identity that fans can understand, appreciate, and remember. 

bio

Who Are You?

Believe it or not, people will read your bio if it is written correctly. Whether it's in a press kit, magazine feature, on Soundcloud or Bandcamp, you can give future fans an opportunity to take an interest in you.

THE PERFECT BIO

Paragraph 1: Mission Statement

This is a 3 sentence “Elevator Pitch.” You’re in an elevator with a potential fan. Explain your band/project/sound and give them your business card by the time they get to their floor.

b. What kind of music do you play? Who do you sound like?

c. What sets you apart from other bands within your genre?

Paragraph 2: Band Members
