How to write a good "pitch" for editorial?
Try to stay under 500 characters. It is possible to exceed this limit in our direct pitches to platforms, but we will be forced to trim down to 500 characters when pitching on SpotifyForArtists.
Write in the third person, stay honest and true to your artistic sensibilities, avoid jargon.
→ What message do you want to convey with this release? Choose a strong message and describe it in 2-3 sentences. Try to capture the essence of the songs, get the listener to discover them with the right context, the right emotions.
+ describe your style, your artistic approach, what motivates you, the emotions you are trying to explore, etc.
+ describe the genesis of the release: the inspiration behind the songs, what you learned in creating them, etc.
+ instill maximum credibility in the project: in your "story", what makes you powerful and unique as an artist? How does the release fit into your overall project?
& (if the whole thing is short) recall its most important successes, and the next important appointments
