There are so many platforms that musicians can use for an online presence: Facebook, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, Twitter, Tumblr, Sonicbids, and so forth. Independent musicians especially rarely use just one. So why bother with a website? Well, at this point, your stuff's all over the place, right? Consolidating your media and info on a single website makes it significantly simpler for fans to find everything – plus, you have full control over your content and how it's presented.
