Music Industry Blueprint










Music Industry Blueprint, founded by Rick Barker, strives to teach artists how to be artists. With major changes in the music industry and digital world, record labels expect artists to build their online presence and fan base, become great performers, and ultimately create their own buzz. Labels no longer spend thousands of dollars to “develop” an act. Today, it is the artist’s job to become an attractive partner to a record label.

MIB offers a free video series, e-book, and social media for music training. Once you dive into the resources, begin building your brand, and engaging with fans, Rick is here to teach and share his 25 years of experience with you. As someone who has worked with Florida Georgia Line, RaeLynn, and Taylor Swift, to name a few, Rick has been a part of developing artists for industry-changing careers and even superstardom. As a consultant for Big Machine Label Group and Live Nation, Rick also stays up to date with industry news and trends to best serve his Blueprint Members.

We hope MIB teaches and inspires you to take control of your career and become a business-minded artist who is ready to take on this crazy industry. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions.
