When messaging an Artist, it’s helpful to tell them a little bit about yourself, and what you have in mind for working together. It can start simple, with date/time and the type of Online Show you’d like to put together. It’s up to you, but it is helpful for Artists to get a broader picture of who they’re talking to.

After messaging an Artist, they will receive a notification. You don’t need to do anything else for now. In turn, you will receive a notification if and when the Artist messages you back, and will then be able to begin the online show booking process.
