Typically, social media platforms will only allow you to add one link within your bio. This is where it can become difficult for labels and independent artists to display their work. Labels want to include as many of their clients as possible and artists shouldn’t have to miss out on maximising their listeners. Having all of your links in one place is the best way to ensure your content is heard.
