In music publicity and distribution, a one sheet is exactly what the name implies: one sheet of paper, on which information is provided about the musician and/or a specific release which is being distributed. One sheets often accompany a record or CD when it is being shipped to radio stations and music publications (i.e., magazines, web-based forums, etc.) A one sheet is sometimes also referred to as a press sheet or a promo sheet.

Layout and content

Depending on the purpose it serves, a one sheet will often contain a variety of information about its subject. Often comprising both images and text, one sheets typically serve as a way to introduce the unfamiliar reader to a particular artist. The name of the artist (and perhaps the title of the release) will appear prominently. Some common elements found on a one-sheet can include:

  • Logo
  • Biographical information
  • Photograph(s) of the artist
  • Cover artwork for the release
  • Names of the stronger, more representative tracks
  • Names of tracks that might be in violation of U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines (for radio airplay)
  • List of similar artists
  • Contact information for the artist or record label
