How to write an artistic bio + example

Updated: Jan 13, 2022

Here is another post about resume: this time I am writing about an absolute must, an artistic bio: what is it, when do you use it, and how do you write it

It is a short story about your professional life, a text about you as an artist: from where you studied and sang to your scheduled performances. It is the most universal resume type: it is used on websites and in concert programs. Also, you can send it when applying to studios and competitions.


- Heading: name and surname

- Description: voice type

- Text:

• Education

• Competitions

• Past and future performances

You can change the text according to your needs and focus on what’s important for every opportunity.


• Details about your voice, like a light lyric tenor. The commission may have a different opinion about you

• Skills like sight-reading or fast-learning: it’s something that goes without saying

• Teaching experience: leave it for when you apply for a teaching job

• Non-academic performances: bars, funerals, and wedding are good when you’re trying to get a gig, not a role

If you don’t have enough experience to create a good structured CV, settle down with an artistic one, as it’s the one that is always appropriate.

Make it 1 page size using 12-pt font and adding a portrait photo.
