Large 9c957fa3

As a musician, DJ, or musical artist, building a website can seem like a daunting task that is only a job for "those" technical minded people– but with Revolve you can build your own creative website quickly and easily, and best part about it is that ZERO coding skills are necessary. An artist website is a perfect way to showcase your music and talent, and a great marketing platform to bridge the gap between you and your fans– current and future. The biggest differences between just having a Facebook fanpage are that you are in control of the appearance of your site to give a good impression of you as an artist, you choose the content you want to highlight and the tone of voice you want to relay; and most importantly you have ownership of all data like fan contact information. Getting started is easy and we are there to help in all steps of the process. Here are some tips for a rocking a successful site:

Building a fanbase is just as important as engaging your fans. Below is a list of common mistakes, which when avoided, will help you keep your current fans and attract new one.

Tell us about WWR.
Woof! Woof! Ridicule = The Ypma sisters, Suzanne and Eveline, producer Peter Geraedts and drummer Maurits de Vries. In March we released our debut album Run Faster. The album is a mix of catchy, edgy songs with danceable beats and playful synthesizers. What makes Woof! Woof! Ridicule really unique is the use of electronics. We make music by touching water in laboratory glassware or play keys on a bunch of bananas.
