if you have any kind of online presence the first thing most folk will see is your profile image. You really need to maintain an up to date headshot. Stick your name in to Google and see what comes up.......

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Even artists and bands who are just beginning their career should have professional up to date portrait/press images. The music business is a difficult door to get through and first impressions really count.......why make it more difficult by using mediocre photographs?
