A brief, existential guide to Encore References


A while ago we received feedback asking for a means of endorsing the quality of musicians in the Encore network. So we put our collective heads together and last week was happy to unveil the site’s latest feature: References.



1. Write it

2. Submit it

3. Hope they approve it


4. Take pride in your altruism


Leaving comments on the profiles of your musical peers bolsters their reputation and maximises their chances of getting booked for gigs through Encore. Endorse others and if you’re lucky they’ll reciprocate!
