The music industry is definitely a more relaxed world than some other business realms, but that doesn't mean that all standards of professionalism are out the window. In no place is this more evident than the music industry email. Now, a professional email probably doesn't start "hey Shawty," (true story), and it probably uses things like punctuation. It probably opts for BCC over CC, and it probably doesn't contain tons of bad language. For starters.
Make no mistake about it - the tone of that first email you send to someone matters. If you want to get a reply, you need to come across as someone who is serious about their music career. Need some help making sure you're putting your best professional foot forward? Check out these simple tips for writing a professional music industry email.
