Follow this List of Your Favorite Musicians and Bands on Twitter!

Are you using Twitter to interact with your friends and family? Twitter is a micro-blogging service where you can send links and brief bits of news to your followers, reply to “Tweets” and get the latest news from people you follow. If you are already using Twitter, then you might want to consider follow your favorite bands and musicians, too! (We hope that you “follow” Musicnotes! Our Twitter account is located at: @music_notes.) Well, we’ve scoured the web to find a nice, long list of musicians and bands who have embraced this medium.

Bands and Musicians on Twitter

This is a long list of bands and musicians who are on Twitter whose musical styles range from pop to classical. By no means is this a comprehensive list, but as far as we can tell, these accounts represent the “official” band or performer. Sometimes, it can be hard to tell whether or not the Twitter ID is actually the person you’re looking for, but we’ve done our research and believe these to be accurate. If you find an inaccuracy, please comment below and we will remove from this list.

You’ll notice that there is a healthy mix of indie, popular and legendary music icons in this list. Don’t be afraid to check out bands or performers you’ve never heard of; many of these Twitter accounts have a link to their MySpace page so you can check out their music. Today’s unsigned band might very well be tomorrow’s superstar!

Are you in a band? Do you write songs? Love music? Whether you are a fan of a band, songwriter, musician, singer or you are one yourself — please add your Twitter account to this list! Let’s keep the music flowing and support musicians and songwriters everywhere!

  11. This is great… to help keep an updated list of bands on Twitter, I put together a shared/collaborative spreadsheet that lists bands/artists and record labels using Twitter. People have started adding/updating… which should help keep it current.

    Check out the list here: and you can add new artists or record labels using this form:

    Lastly, please feel free to embed the list on your blog!

    In my opinion, Musicnotes is a fair deal. One must see though, that I do not find the jazz that I need, and would purchase. You could start, Musicnotes, with Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington. How was this ever overlooked anyway, as jazz is an inherent part of the American Culture, our classical if u will!
    Any comments to my inquiry would be welcomed.

    • Monica

      Rich, I’m really not sure what you mean. We have quite a few jazz sheet music favorites through including all of those artists that you listed and more. This post is to highlight some of the bands and musicians that use Twitter. :)
