There are lots of things that your band needs to catch people’s attention, but don’t forget the root of it all - your music. A good website can help make a good impression, but if you don’t take the time to create a great recording your efforts will be wasted! Talk with producers about how to prepare for the studio, what your options are for your budget, and how to create something really special.
