or unprofessionally. In most cases, press kits include unprofessional demos. A lot of
these are done at home in home recording studios. An example of a demo is as follows. It comes
in a nice case and has artwork from the album. Artwork is a key component of a press kit
and is very important for help promoting the band, and creating an image and style that
the band wants to portray. This also helps to find the style of music, which will be
listened to on the demo. Artwork is often done by professionals or friends. It’s really
important to have nice artwork for your music. Another example of a demo is this (“South
