Maximize Your Presence

Leverage All About Jazz—the Internet's most technically advanced jazz platform—to reach our vast network of fans and industry professionals locally or worldwide. From establishing a presence on All About Jazz and Jazz Near You to contacting a staff writer about a review or press release assignment, it's all here!

Create or Claim Your Musician Page

Promoting yourself on All About Jazz starts with your musician page. If your musician page already exists in our database, claim it, then update it. Otherwise, create it. There are several assets associated with your musician page including photos, events, your discography, your biography, links, audio players, etc. The most effective page is a complete page, so upload as much information as possible. For more information, see our musician primer page.

Need a biography, press release or liner note?

Looking for a professionally-written biography, a carefully-crafted press release, or informative yet entertaining liner notes? Your friends at All About Jazz can help. With access to hundreds of writers, All About Jazz can find the right journalist to meet your needs and deliver on time, whatever your assignment.

How it Works

We'll match you up with an experienced writer who has deep knowledge of your music or musical style. You can also request a specific writer from our staff page. Once the writer is chosen for the assignment, the project will begin shortly after payment is made and the deadline is negotiated. Once the draft is completed, a round of edits occur, the final document is approved, and the document is delivered to the artist.

Every press release written by the All About Jazz staff qualifies for our press release distribution program free of charge.
