How to get your band’s pictures and biography on Xbox Music

Overview

Learn how to get your band’s pictures and biography on Xbox Music. Follow these steps to create your band’s Xbox Music presence.

Step 1: Get your music in the Xbox Music store

It’s easy to start the process. Just visit Sell your music in the Xbox Music store to get your music into the store.

Step 2: Create your BandPage account

BandPage is the musician’s hub for managing your online presence and driving unique e-commerce opportunities. BandPage allows you to publish your band’s biography and pictures on all the Xbox Music platforms, including Windows, Xbox, Windows Phone and more. All you need to do is create your BandPage account and connect it to Xbox Music.

Step 3: Add your images to your BandPage profile

The Xbox Music experience is extremely visual, so we need great images from you, the kind that a magazine might feature in an article about your band.

Please use an image that meets the following conditions:

  1. It does not contain any text, including logos or marketing claims.
  2. It contains at least one person’s head.
  3. It is not album art.
  4. It does not infringe on someone else’s rights and is not offensive.

    We recommend you use a landscape orientation image (ideally, a 2:1 ratio) as your profile picture. To optimise desktop and mobile experiences, we also suggest you upload both a portrait and a square image as well. If the ratios and quality are not ideal, we might use an image from another provider.
Step 4: Polish your BandPage profile’s biography

Your biography should tell your band’s story. We want biographies that follow these guidelines:

  • Do describe how your band got started and what influenced its sound.
  • Do write more than just one or two sentences. Your listeners want to know details about your band.
  • Don’t use HTML or URLs.
  • Don’t use offensive language.
Step 5: What’s next?

It can take around two weeks for your BandPage to be certified. Once it’s certified, your content will show up in Xbox Music. Now Xbox Music users can hear, see and read all about your band.

Note Xbox reserves the right to disable the publication of any content.
