Muzic.net.nz - Filling Out The Add Artist Form
Posted: Tue Dec 20, 2005 11:47 pm
Guidelines for completing our Add Artist form:

The most important thing to remember when completing this form is that the resulting page that will be displayed on muzic.net.nz is effectively a form of advertising for you or your band. If someone searches for you or your band, muzic.net.nz will be one of the first results returned on most search engines. Therefore, the more information you can include, the better.

With the above in mind, let's look at filling out the Add Artist form:

Before you can fill out the Add Artist form, you must be signed up as a member of muzic.net.nz, and you must be logged in.
If you are not already signed up, you can sign up for free here.

Your Name: This will automatically prefill with your member name.

Your Email: This will automatically prefill with your email address.

Musician/Band Name: This is the name of the band or musician that you represent. Names should be entered in initial caps.

Band names can only have letters and numbers in them. Any other formatting (such as < > { } + = ) screws up some features of our database, including searching.


Official Artist Website: Your official website address.

Under the Official Artist Website link are places for you to then enter your Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Bandcamp, Instagram, ReverbNation, SoundCloud and iTunes links.



You should enter your biography as though you are writing about the band from an out-siders point of view. So use; they, them, etc, not me, I, we.

The more you can write here, the better. If you want to promote yourself online and distinguish yourself from other musicians and bands you need to say more than just "Rock band from Auckland". A couple of paragraphs are recommended. Some suggestions of what you can write about are:

- What you have accomplished (awards you have won, placings in competitions, placings on charts etc).
- What EPs/Albums you have released.
- Who you have performed and worked with, including support slots for international acts.
- What your goals and aims are.
- How you came up with your band name.
- When and where your band formed.
- How you describe your music.

PLEASE NOTE - We only list NZ bands or artists on muzic.net.nz. We will also add any bands or artists that were originally from NZ and are now based overseas, or any overseas bands that have members who were originally from NZ.

Band Members: List the name of each band member (surnames are optional), along with the instrument/s they play.

Town/City: This is the main town or city that you are based in. If you are from New Zealand but no longer based in New Zealand, you can enter 'Outside of NZ' here. We can only list one town or city in here, so please choose the main town or city you are based in.

Genre: This is the main style of music that you play. Choose the one that fits you best from the list of options.


Contact Name: The name of the person who receives emails at the email address you enter in the next field.

Contact Email: This is your main contact email address.

Please Note: We do not display your email address on muzic.net.nz.

Other Contact Details: Any other private contact information can be entered here (phone numbers etc). This contact information is for the muzic.net.nz team only and will not be seen by the general public.


.JPG, .GIF and .PNG are accepted formats.

Upload Logo: Attach a file here that you want to show up as your logo (i.e. what is displayed in our search listings).

Upload Photo: Attach a photo here that you want to show up on your artist listing. When your listing has been created you will be given access to upload further photo galleries.


Comments: This is an optional field to tell us (the muzic.net.nz people) anything additional. Any information you put in here won't necessarily be added to your artist page.

You can include the following information in this field:

- Albums and EPs you have released with track listings.
- The name of the record company you are signed to.
- Upcoming gig details.
- Review/interview and photography requests.
- If you want more than one person to have access to update your page.

When you have completed the add artist form, an email will go through to muzic.net.nz notifying us. In most cases, it can take up to 24 hours to add your page to the site. Once it is up, you will have access to update your information and to add mp3 and photo galleries.

And lastly, if you have any comments or questions about our Add Artist form, contact us through our Contact Page.
