These are two simple yet utterly brilliant articles that explain how to properly tag your mp3 files so that they show up in the recipient’s itunes with a title and how best to send people large files.

Loads of musicians don’t do this so their tracks end up lost in the itunes folder of the person they sent it to. And, perhaps worse, most musicians try and send massive files to industry folks – which makes them pissed off with big and slow emails before they have even tried to listen to the act’s track.

There’s a connected post on our blog about sending a demo to record labels.

But, as far as tagging your file and sending it digitally, do it this way – it’s the right way.

Part 1 – Get your metadata straight.

Part 2 – Send demos by Dropbox or Soundcloud.
