If you read this article, and feel like you want to write a bio and don’t know where to start, below is a list of questions that you can use to help guide you in the process of writing your bio.
We don’t recommend answering the questions directly but to use them to give you ideas of things you may want to add, or leave out, of any bio that may be written about you.
Even recording labels should have biographies written about them. A bio doesn’t have to be long or short and its not an exact science, just remember having a bio has many uses and benefits.
A few questions you should consider addressing in your bio are as follows;
- Was there something in your childhood that shaped your personality and character?
- How did you end up with your stage name, and do you have others?
- Do you have a personality trait that will drive you to success?
- How would you describe yourself?
- Name some turning points in your life.
- Do you intend to have an impact on history and how?
- Talk about your style, rap style, or whatever it is you do.
- What people or artists have impacted you and your work?
- How long have you been doing your thing?
- Where are you from?
- Where do you see yourself, or your legacy, in 5, 10, or 50 years?
- What is your mission in life?
- Consider adding any other points not addressed in the points above.
